Stampin’! Up always has so many fun paper kits to choose from, so it’s no surprise that they’ve got some wonderful banners to choose for your next party. Check out my review of two of their kits over on Metro Parent.
As seen on TV – that’s fun to say! I started my day out with a visit to Fox 2 Detroit this morning to show Amy Andrews a few last-minute New Year’s Eve craft projects for kids to enjoy on Dec. 31. If you liked what you saw and need a project for your family, here’s a resource roundup guide for you! (more…)
It’s officially fall in Michigan and I’m trying to enjoy every second of this always-short season here in the Mitten State for as long as I can. There’s lots of plaids to wear, warm tea to sip and beautiful plant colors to gaze upon.
If you’re in the mood for more harvest hues in your home, you can add a simple canvas-denim-shirting wrap to any plain vase for a quick fall upgrade. This wrap is easy to sew; add it to your own vase for a harvest centerpiece or use it wrap around a bunch of flowers at the end of a dinner party to send home with guests. (more…)
Ronnie celebrated her ninth birthday last week and, yes, I made her a present. And got her some cat treats. And even made her wear an Oh Joy! for Target mini party hat.
Hi. My name is Lish. And I’m a cat lady.
Jokes aside, it was great being able to celebrate another birthday for Ronnie after her heart disease diagnosis this year.

…as you can see, the quilt was a hit. Happy birthday, Ronnie.

The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. Selfishly my birthday is two days after, but I love wearing red, white and blue; decorating anything I can get my hands on with stars; enjoying local parades; sitting back and taking in some fireworks as patriotic marches set the soundtrack.
We tend to host family and friends for a barbecue on the Fourth the past few years and this year was no different. While our menu wasn’t as grand as it had been due to our deck renovation project, we still had a great time. (more…)
My birthday was this past weekend and my friends and husband surprised me with a craft night in my craft studio! It was such a surprise and a total blast. We made a few cards (as directed by a great new pal of mine), enjoyed some champagne and shared lots of crafty ideas. Here’s what we made. (more…)
