Catalogs and other Pertinent Documents

  Be sure to check out my CATALOGS tab. I have been refreshing it and reorganizing it. It has the digital version of catalogs going back quite a few years, and related retiring lists, catalog recipes, color coaches, special release flyers, and so much more,  It is a work in progress but at least recent years are easy to search now. Scroll all the way to the bottom for items that are not related to catalogs and products. You might find some of them of great use to yourself. Such as a printable order form.  Keep being creative, Sandy

Find Daily Inspiration

  FIND YOUR DAILY INSPIRATION FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM I no longer post, at least for the time being, daily or even weekly crafts here. The reasons are many, but the bottom line is TIME! Still looking for daily inspiration? Be sure to follow me on Facebook or Instagram. Some days may even have multiple inspiration.  I am working on getting my items posted to Pinterest. Pinterest has changed how stuff is posted and I am having trouble with the new methods. It is not ideal for me right now.
