About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

2 Sketches 4 You


I love snow, it maybe the misplaced New Englander in me. I grew up in New England but have lived in Maryland for the past 16 years. I definitely miss the weather. When it snows in Maryland the world stops where back home it is just expected. LOL As soon as I saw Laura's sketch I knew I wanted to use snowflakes. I had just received my order which had Two Cool Dudes and Frosty Day designer paper in it. I decided to flip the sketch to see what happened. I layered two different sizes chocolate chip ribbon and I sewed through the old olive scallop edge. I cut out the snowflakes and adhered the buttons and used the floss to sew through the buttons. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
