Leap Day

Yay! It is leap year day! an extra day to spend enjoying life! And what better way to enjoy it other that being festive.  I even got my first leap day card in the mail (thanks Nancy). March is right around the corner – St. Patrick’s Day, first day of spring, and this year Easter is in March too.  Good news is that folks are taking advantage of this leap day with awesome sales.  Including Everyday Holiday Shop.  Check out the sale on spring and Easter decor along with seasonal fun too. 

Hope you get out there and enjoy your extra day or at least get online and shop some awesome sales.  I am going over to the Hero Arts site to take advantage of their 29% sale today.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  I love getting my house decorated, planning fun menus, baking cookies, and spending lots and lots of time with my family.  We love the Christmas parade in my small beach town, walking around the city looking at the lights and celebrating the reason for the season: our Lord’s birth.  To help you in your quest for the perfect lil gift for your co-worker, hairdresser, dog walker, postal employee, etc, check out my faux coffee cup greeting card.  It has a slot inside for you to add a gift card AND I can personalize it with their name (just like the coffee shop).

Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year to you all.

When birthdays and disney collide

My sweet grandson Noah just had his first visit to Disneyland for his birthday.  And being the annual pass holders, both nana and bumpa were invited to share in the day.  Loved seeing him enjoy the rides and characters.  So it was only natural that his birthday card was a disney/I’m two mix. He loved it.  If you are going to celebrate a birthday at Disneyland resort soon, please message me through my Etsy shop and I can design a card just for you.card     https://www.etsy.com/listing/232716671/know-someone-having-disney-themed-party?ref=shop_home_active_1

Mother’s Day – May 10

For some people, Mother’s day is a hard holiday.  Either their mom’s are gone, or estranged, or there are too many moms in their circle – mother’s in laws, ex’s, “the all knowing” mothering types, etc.  But for most of the world, Mother’s Day is special.  Time to acknowledge the love, care, patience (albeit veiled at times), and TIME Mom’s give to their young. This is why I designed a special mother’s day item for my ETSY shop which reflects the TIME – literately!

A canvas clock that expresses YOU ARE LOVED – ALL OF THE TIME.  Doesn’t that say it all? And it can be gifted to anyone who have taken the time to give you love, care, a listening ear, a hug, etc.  So pop over to my shop when you can and check it out. side ways



Easter Blessings

Easter was always a fun time growing up.  It meant a new hat and a new pair of shoes.  Always white. Like a clean slate. And sometimes even a new purse.  After church we would ‘find’ hidden treasures (candy candy candy).  When I grew up I instilled some fun memories in my kids too.  Church, picnic in the park, and our beloved KITE WARS.

I love the feeling of renewal in Spring especially during Easter.  Here is my homage to this holiday.  It showcases my “blocks that talk”. They can be used for any festive event or holiday.
