Three Points on Thursday

Good afternoon my friends! I'm stopping in to tell you Studio on the Corner blog will be quiet for awhile. I wish I knew how long, but I don't know for sure. The new year always urges me to organize & refocus for the coming year, in other words get all my ducks in a row.


I'm breaking up with Blogger/Blogspot. It will likely be a slow break, after all, we've been together for 8 years! The glitches frustrate, but creating a new studio with a solid focus is something that needs doing.




Scraps, Studio on the Corner newsletter has been missing for months, but will be making an appearance in the near future. Instead of weekly, it will be a monthly newsletter with the same great features: advanced notice of SotC Etsy shop sales, inspiration, tutorials, & a freebie or 2 in each issue. A new addition may be interviews with creative souls from all walks of life. Stay tuned for the date.


Learn. It's an important word that should follow us forever. Last year a friend & I thought we'd do a podcast. We planned, bought an Ice Blue microphone, downloaded Audacity, & gave it a whirl. All went well until it was time to figure out how to get the podcast online. I struggled & eventually gave up. Well...this year I'm determined to LEARN how to do podcasts & vimeo or youtube videos. Sharing tutorials via a podcast or a video would be great.

So there you have it....why Studio on the Corner blog is about to go into sleep mode. Meanwhile, SotC Etsy shop will be open & new things will be added.  So toodles for now from me & the cat in the bowler hat. . .  See you soon with an update!

Random Act of Kindness & No 25

Time tends to get away from us, especially when loved ones are near. I truly did not forget about Freebie No. 25, I stepped away from the cyber world & just let life happen. As the holidays & the year draw to a close let's make this last freebie something special.



The last freebie, No 25, is a charming little envelope. Just download, print on standard print paper, cut out, fold & glue. Easy-peasy. The envelope comes as a JPG & a PDF for adding text on the outside. The envelope size is not USP sendable, but it's created as a fun way to give a smile to a stranger. You can write a message of encouragement or inspiration on the inside of the envelope or on a separate piece of stationery. If you want, you could tuck inside a bit of money or some other surprise like a gift card to a coffee shop. Take your finished envelope into the world & let it go. Leave the envelope on a park bench, in an airport or train station, drop it as you walk along or place it on a windshield. This is a wonderful way to end the year & begin a new one.

Let's all get out there & perform a random act of kindness! Download the envelope HERE

Freebie 23 & 24

This morning was so lovely.... sitting with my daughter & son sipping coffee & just talking. These are the morning I love. The day before Christmas is always so full of hustle & bustle...gifts to wrap, a crown cake to make, people hurrying in various directions, & 2 more freebies to give to you!

Freebie 23 I hope you love these borders as much as I do. The three borders are all muslin needlework patterns from Ackermann's Repository 1828.  They're PNGs & just black & white so you can change up the color, paint them or do whatever you wish.

Freebie 23



Freebie 24  We can't end 25 days of Christmas Freebies without some word art giving a nod to the new year...2017! Only one is good just for this year. The other 2 can be used for any new year's invitation or party decor.

You will find the final freebie here on Studio on the Corner  blog sometime late tomorrow afternoon or early evening. Postings may be sporadic until next year so that I can spend lots of time with my children & grandson.  I sincerely hope you enjoy each of the 25 freebies. It's not always been easy to come up with unique ideas & get them to you on time, but it was a challenge that I met with a smile.  

Have a beautiful Christmas Eve!
