Love Me a Cup of Coffee Blog Candy!

I have a new image to show you!!  As many of you already know, I love coffee!!  I cannot go without it!  I thought it would be fun to make a ‘to go’ cup of coffee with a sweet coffee  sleeve  around it.  I love all the different style cozies that you can buy on ETSY, and I’ve  purchased a few for my coffee drinking  friends over the years.   There is a cute one I’ve had my eye on available from SEWDARNCHIC!

I’m so glad you stopped by today and as always, if …

My Memories Suite Software Review and Giveaway

Hi!  I’m excited about sharing this with you today!   I have not done much scrapbooking in the past, aside from a few pages when my boys were babies.  I found that it took too much of my time.  Anyone with me on that point?  I found that card making gave me  instant gratification for my creative needs and I kind of gave up on scrapbooking.  I always felt bad about it though, since I have all these fabulous photos that I am not doing anything with!  They can’t all be framed and hung on a wall right?! So, with that said, when I was asked to review the digital scrapbooking software My Memories Suite, I saw it as a great opportunity to see if  digital scrapbooking would be a faster and easier option for me than traditional scrapbooking. I have not  previously used digital scrapbooking software, other than playing around with Photoshop (which I was mostly frustrated with), and I found My Memories Suite to be very intuitive and user friendly by design.  I …
