Halloween Window Clings available now at Menards Stores

Halloween-WindowClings

If you live in the mid-west and have a Menards store near you – you just might wander in and find window clings for Halloween featuring my designs.  I received my samples a few weeks ago and was so excited to put some on my window yesterday.  (Of course my 16 year old thinks it’s a little early but I told him the time to buy Halloween stuff is NOW and I needed the photo for the blog!)

To find a store near you, visit their website at www.menards.com.

Unfortunately, if you don’t have a store near you, I can’t help your window situation this year… but still wish you the spookiest of Halloweens!

Doing a “Happy Dance” – my new “Play Your Song” fabric line is amazing!

MusicFabric-Sept09

My latest fabric collection from South Sea Imports is a big hit with my family.  My son, brother and sister-in-law all play guitar and are fighting for pieces of my fabric.  I have yet to decide who gets what and may just send them all to the store to buy their own!

Musical notes, instruments and messages like Play Your Song and Listen with Your Heart add emotion to the art.  SO… dance on down to your favorite fabric store today and ask to see the “Play Your Song” collection from Tara Reed.

If you would like a free project sheet that includes a quilt, piano bench cover and 2 notebook inserts (all designed by the good people at South Sea Imports), CLICK HERE.  And if you make something you love with the fabric, let me know!  I’d love to post a picture.

Happy creating!

“Santa’s Reindeer” ..and a twist..a “Tara Reed” design

This is a card I made using a stamp from “Janlynn” called “Santa’s Reindeer”
Even tho you can make a million cute Christmas cards with this guy I decided he looked like he could be missing someone too… I have been blessed to have my 4 children home with me every Christmas but one. My oldest (30 next month) lives in North Carolina and one year he decided he should work instead. That was one of the worst holidays I ever had. We thought it would be okay, ..he needed the money…WRONG..On Christmas day we KNEW we had figured wrong. We missed him so much and things were just not the same. Since then we have been together every Christmas. Now I know this wont always be..but for now I will appreciate it! My heart just breaks for our Military men away from their families at Christmas and I dont know how they do it. God Bless them ALL and their families. On to the card recipe! DP is Memory Box, “Dewfrost”. I used a couple MS punches and colored with Copics! TFL! Check out all the new and CUTE stamps over at Janlynn. You wont be disapointed!
