Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Thinkin' of You

Hi Everyone,

I was in a vintage-y mood this week...I was finishing up reading Emma by Jane Austen.  This is our book club pick for this month, and the meeting is tonight.  I'm looking forward to it, since this is one of the best reads for me in a while.  Last year there was a great mini series version on Masterpiece Classic and it's so worth the time if you love the book.  Ahhh, romance.  Sigh.  (Tonight we also vote on our next 4 book picks...woo-hoo!)

Anyway, here is a general card that I made using some digital paper from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  What?  You've never tried digital paper?  Well, today is you lucky day.  THIS beautiful Vintage Sheet Music Paper is F-R-E-E!  No lie. 


It made the perfect back drop for my vintage parlor chair that was a rub on from the dollar bin at Michael's.  I just love the crisp black and white look.

What are you waiting for?  Check out these papers at Lindsay's Shop (They go so well with the Steampunk Set or the Posh n Trendy set, both of which are a couple of my current faves from the store.)

Don't forget to visit Lindsay's Blog (always more freebies there!) and the rest of the DT have projects this week as well :) 

Thanks for visiting today!
