I guess my favourite stamps are Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink and Impression Obsession. I have several clear bins of my favourites and it has become my guilty pleasure. My New Year's resolution of this year has been to organize my craft area and not buy so much!
Can anyone tell I love making baby cards!!!

I loved the results. And so did my family. Check it out.
What attracted me to these little houses was that they are little ceramic miniatures of art.The glaze on them is just delicious. There is so much shine, color and texture on them and they are small in scale so I can scatter several all around and it does really resemble a tiny village. I have a general store, a dress shop and a church and a schoolhouse and the little people are just as varied. I have a father and son, a young couple, an older couple and two friends and just love imagining scenarios for them and placing them in different locations. I got the fence from Canadian Tire and it was my last add-on purchase. When I saw the fence I fell in love I thought it was spectacularly perfect. It adds a touch of reality to the whole scene. Now I just have to find small little trees to complete the look. This village was my tree replacement for this year and it seemed to be a hit with everyone.
I just can't wait till next year to add more accessories to my little village. Just planning and dreaming of the outcome is what I enjoy the most.
