Hi friends
checking in :)

All is well here. we are moving, so that has taken all of my time and attention. We are moving closer to my daughter and grandkids, so that is a wonderful thing <3 

I am working on inventory and organizing my products since the sale drove in more orders than I imagined. I am not placing reorders at this time. I hope you are all finding lots of creative time.


smooches,
Kim

Easter Sunday Recap 4.12

Happy Easter, friends! Christ is RISEN!!!!

I pray that you are doing well and staying safe and healthy! These times are uncertain and definitely different for all of us. We are taking it one day at a time ❤️

I've been MIA lately due to my job- who knew I had another job!!?!? LOL! I did get some time to play with some of my Paper Smooches stamps and dies this weekend. I even used some dies that I've never used before! It was a much needed break from everything going on 👏🏻 I created a birthday card for a very special friend. Here's a sneak peek! **NOTE: I think this actually fits our color story challenge!!! My yellow is a bit off, and I have a few extra colors... but it's close enough:) 
Speaking of birthdays... Kim's celebrating 49 this week! In honor of her birthday, she's having a HUGE sale! I'm talking HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE! Check out the details HERE! Hurry and grab some goodies before April 16th.
And don't forget to join in the fun with our current COLOR STORY challenge! We are using pastels as our color palette. You can link up HERE or down below.

checking in...
I hope you are all feeling well <3

We are healthy here. I am doing my part with social distancing. It was tough to close our Paint & Wine Studio in mid-March but I know it was for the best. We hope to be able to reopen in May. Owning two small businesses is so incredibly scary at this time.

There won't be a Paper Smooches blog hop tomorrow BUT there will be a SALE - a huge one!
There will not be a new release either. Life is crazy right now and we are selling our home and moving in April. So a new release on top of everything else would be a challenge. We will be closer to our grandbabies, so that is a wonderful thing.

More details tomorrow...please stay tuned...

(So Lovely, Rainbow Sherbet Paper Pack)


Because of the availability of soda fountains in the Eastern US when soft drinks became popular, Easterners referred to the drink as soda. As the midwest did not yet have them, the drink was called pop because of the sound a cork or cap makes when being removed from a bottle.

smooches,
