Time for Something New

logo color

Friends, I’ve been blogging here at Krafty Cards etc for almost 3 years now, and its been a blast. I love the friends I have made and the community that has surrounded and encouraged me on this blog.

When I created this blog it represented where I was as a woman, mom & blogger. Since then there have been many changes in my life and I decided that it was time for something new. Time to create a new space, one that lets me write about the things I am passionate about and doesn’t have the word “cards” in the title.

This blog will remain here for a few months for you to refer to for recipes and tips. I will not be posting new articles here but I would love for you to join me over at my new blog, the Krafty Owl (


I’ve transferred some of your favorite posts to the Krafty Owl so they will always be available to you and created a cookbook with all the recipes that have been posted here at Krafty Cards etc which is free to Krafty Owl Newsletter subscribers.

If you are a Krafty Cards etc blog follower and would like to continue receiving new posts from the Krafty Owl, please sign up using the Stay Updated section of the Krafty Owl side bar.

If you are a Newsletter follower, your subscription will not change and you will receive an email with a link to the free printables being offered at the Krafty Owl.

So, will you join me at my new blog? I can’t wait to see you over there! You can also follow the Krafty Owl on social media.

Day 8: My Favorites Crafts for Christmas this year


 I wish there was enough time to make all of these amazing Christmas crafts. It seems that with Thanksgiving so late in November that the Christmas season goes way too fast and I want to leave the decorations up a little longer than normal.  Oh well, there’s always next year!

Day 8: Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags


 Welcome to the Krafty Cards etc 12 Days of Christmas.  Today is day 9 and its all about gift tags. I still have some presents to buy and haven’t wrapped anything yet. I’m usually done by now and can relax to enjoy the holiday activities. Not this year, even though I’m organized and have everything planned out. I don’t have much extra time right now and not only do I have to wrap gifts but I still have to get groceries for Christmas eve and day dinner. Anyway’s enough of my ranting and lets get to some of these great looking gift tags.
