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.

Miss You

Hi Everyone,

It's a quick little post from me today since the hubby is on vacation and we are attempting to do fun stuff, as well as get some odd and ends taken card of. 

I made this simple card and sent it off a couple of weeks ago. I used the vintage typewriter image from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and the sentiment is a combo of a couple different traditional stamps.  The fabric yo yo is handmade by me and I love how simple and quick they are to whip up .  Now I need different material besides this black and white which I have shown before ;)


Here is a look at all the images in the set:


Thanks for dropping by and visit Lindsay's blog for all here great ideas by clicking on her name!

Hope you are having a great week crafty friends :)

Hi Karin,

Must be nice to have hubby at home... enjoy!

Love your yoyo and the old typewriter... black and white is ideal for this card. The embossing looks great and how talented you are with the yoyo.

Hi Karin....I love the black and white with the splash of cream in the background. Your flower is adorable, when you get a minute, can you share with me how you made that?

Have a great day with your love!
