Hi, I'm Jean and I am so glad you're here! This is where I get to share my latest crafty creations and sewing projects. I'm no expert...just trying to make the world around me prettier and happier. I hope to inspire and encourage you to sew, craft, create something fun for you or a loved one. As a stay-at-home mom to 3 boys under 4, I am stretched and tired, but this is my space to share creative joy.
Recently we celebrated my parents-in-law's 40th wedding anniversary. 40 years!! My husband and I have just made it to our 5th one. But hey, it was a busy 5 years, with 3 little ones, a move from CA to TX, and several job switches. However, we have nothing on my in-laws... 40 incredible years. In honor of their anniversary, my sister-in-law had a wonderful idea of getting them a tree that they could plant in their backyard. I drove out to the nursery in thundering stormy weather, and rearranged the car seats in my minivan to fit it in there. Note to self...take a pick-up truck next time you are buying a tree. It was worth the trouble and my mother-in-law loved it.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out different phrases and "ornaments" for the tree.
