Thank You Cards to Re-use and Recycle

When you get a handmade card, wouldn't it be nice to be able to pass it along for someone else to enjoy?  I mean, how many of us get a card (and so few of those come in snail mail these days!) and enjoy the sentiment, only to throw it into the paper recycle bin, …

Stamping Fun in April

Saturday was a cold and drizzly day, perfect for doing some indoor crafting. I was in the mood to do some stamping, and decided to make some cards for the Safelight Project.  The Project is picking up now that spring breaks are over, and donations are continuing to arrive in the mail.  Thank you to …

Safelight Project 2018

I am reposting about this project and the prizes you can win as perhaps last week was just too busy with spring break.  My blog was also down for a couple of days as the upgrade was completed to remove ads and complete the redesign of the blog.  I hope you like the new look!  …

Stamping Thank You Cards

While watching a stamping video last weekend, a phrase caught my attention about mixing prints.   I was enjoying Craftsy's free weekend and decided to try Cards With Dimension: Lovely Layers, Textures & Embellishments with Danielle Flanders. The class was fantastic and very inspiring, so I went to the stamping workbench to see what I could …

Stamping February

Stamping in this Valentine month naturally centers on hearts and love, and I am so lucky to still have my sweetheart.  But, for many, Valentine's day isn't a day to celebrate, particularly those who have been betrayed by one they loved.  Perhaps, though, if I could make something small and inspirational, the day might be …

January Stamping Fun with Cards

About a week ago, we got an invitation to a surprise birthday party my dear friend, Gail.  The invitation was hand delivered by her husband and clearly specified 'no gifts'.  Of course, those kinds of instructions I rarely follow, at the very least I wanted to make a card.  For stampers, January is a great …

A Year at From My Carolina Home, and a plan for next year

Are you a planner? I have to confess that I am not much of one anymore. After spending many years in the business world and the medical field, using complex planners to keep track of appointments, travel arrangements, goals and objectives, this is the last thing I want to do now. For me, quilting, cooking, …

Merry Christmas – a Time for Sharing

Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas, dear readers!  At this time of year, it is customary to count our blessings and to share with others.  Giving gifts to dear friends and family, and to those less fortunate is one of the ways that I like to find the joy in the season.  Small tokens of affection …

Christmas Cards for the Shelter

Stamping Christmas cards and sending them to family and friends is fun, but this year I had another idea in mind.  There is no doubt that I now have more stamping stuff than one person should have, especially with a huge stamping score at an estate sale for paper, and then a wonderful gift from …

More cards in November

Stamping more cards in November, I decided that the prize winners from Autumn Jubilee needed a card to go with their prizes.  Since I was mailing several at once, it was easy to go down to the stamping workbench and have some fun with paper and ink.  Pretty paper bits were utilized in these cards.  …
