About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Happy Halloween

Whew, we are having a week here at the Fleming house! Last Friday I woke up with a scratchy throat, and everything went downhill from there. By Saturday night it was a sore throat, and I was exhausted. By Sunday I had a full-blown head cold. I tortured myself twice with the sinus wash (it does work, no matter how terrified I am of it), and now I’m down to a really bad cough. In the meantime, my daughter picked it up. So we’re all stir-crazy and cranky from lack of sleep and exercise. Thank goodness for paper crafts, or I’d be mildly insane right now.

Anyway, I made another Halloween card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. For some reason I can’t stop playing with Toil & Trouble.
