The Week of Joshua Tree and Salvation Mountain

Oh boy, do I have a big post written for this day! Waiting to post. As the page below says, this day wasn't a want, it was a need. With this being the fourth time to SoCal in about seven months (a 9-hour drive), I needed this alternate route. And it turned into one of the most adventurously awesome days. Loved it! Now I just need to collect and edit some photos so I can put it all together and post it. In the interim, I wrote an abridged version for my weekly recap in my travelers notebook.  I haven't entered [...]

I Love A Good Title

I don't know what it is about words and how they add so much that appeals to me in the most delightful way, but boy, do I love them! Make 'em big and bold? Holy cannoli...I swoon. The graphic presentation of it all is divine! So imagine my delight when I saw this from Miss Marcy!       Isn't that just yummy??? And I'm not talkin' about the eggs...although those are pretty too. ;) The Brooklyn XL stamps used here were a limited release, but you can still make an awesome title from other KBS alphabet stamps!   Let's see [...]

New Stamps: A Favorite Classic

I love just a clean serif font. A classic. One that stands the test of time. And throw in an italic version? Be still my heart! This is a style you've seen in my stamps and art throughout the years...and now...we are announcing La Grande and La Grande Italic!     The letters are just over half inch tall. You can use them close together or spread them apart. They look amazing when paired with sentiments from the other KBS stamps too! And it may not be a secret, but the italics are my fave. ;) I'm a bit excited [...]

Stamp It Up!

I am passionate about stamps. Passionate about stamps that are mostly in the form of words. I love that you can quickly add a sentiment or add a plethora to make a statement--and oh boy was I just playing with the plethora option for April stamps! So excited! But you're gonna have to wait on that one. ;) Stamps are an embellishment that's never ending and you can pick whatever color you need (if you have the ink pad, of course--haha). And the gal that brings it all together so well is none other than our lovely Melissa Morelli!   [...]

Getting Ready For Spring

Okay, so we were having spring-like weather, with temps in the 60s...and then winter decided to show up. Nighttime temps in the teens and lots of snow? That's December + January weather. March will be here in two days! And did you see the snow in Rome yesterday? Crazy! With spring comes planning for many people. Lots of vegetables and flowers to be prepared. I've been seeing some seed-sowing posts lately even. And today, we get to see a bit of planning from Marcy!       [ Stamps | Farmer's Market ]   Loooove her list making combined with [...]

Feelin’ The Love

Happy Valentine's Day one and all! This is such a sweet day...and I'm not talking about all the candy. It's the one day a year that we celebrate love. And today we're celebrating some love with a brand new stamp set available for preorder. Say hello to  Feelin' The Love.

So there's a bit of personal [...]

Hello Clothes

What is it about new clothes that make you feel so good? I mean, the 'old' clothes were new once too. They should make you feel good still, right? Some may, some may not. All I know is I've been down that 'feel good' road a bit myself after getting new jeans into the wardrobe...daughters approved jeans even. It may have snowballed from there, but I will neither confirm nor deny that. And it looks like our darling Laura has been on the 'feel good' road trip too recently! Only I wish my road trip was for the same reason [...]
