Stamp Review Crew: Love You To Pieces

The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Love You to Pieces today.  At first glance you may think this set is only for Valentine's Day but when you combine it with another set the possibilities are endless.  Today I used the mugs from Rise & Shine. They pair with the sentiment perfectly.  I am hoping it won't be too much longer before we can get together for a cuppa with our friends!

And since we are talking about jigsaw puzzles.......

I usually do jigsaw puzzles during the winter - after the Christmas rush is over.  So relaxing to do a puzzle and binge Netflix!  I went online last week to order a few more since we will be hanging around home for a while.  I like Charles Wysocki scenes from Amazon and discovered they now cost anywhere from $40 to $80 a puzzle - and some are used.  What?!?!?!?!  Further investigation proved that puzzles are sold out almost everywhere - or are really expensive.  I bet when this is over I will be able to pick up a lot of

If you missed Kelly's wonderful work head back there......

Otherwise keep going to see what delights Lou has in store!

Crafty Friends....FMS429

Crafting is definitely the therapy I need these days.  Of course it may not be cheaper than therapy but it works for me!  I'm visiting lots of blogs and Facebook groups and continue to be inspired by beautiful work.....and by amazing stories of courage and coping during this scary time.  I am also mailing out a card a day to check in with friends, family.....and crafty friends!

Meanwhile Miss Emma is getting very proficient on her iPad as her lessons are now online. Yesterday was Superhero Day and everyone in her class shared pictures of themselves as a superhero!  

Square cards are fun!  Enjoy Judy's sweet sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
