The Cafe is about.....

"I chose this photo because it reminds me of
a summer's afternoon.  I can just imagine....
two friends, sitting around the table
enjoying an afternoon tea of scones
with jam and cream
while catching up on the latest news"

We are super excited to have one of our regular
players in The Cafe as this week's Guest Designer.
We welcome....

Taylor Usry

"I live with my husband and two kids in southern Virginia. I’ve been an avid crafter my whole life, but I’ve only been obsessed with paper crafting for the last 7 years or so.  I cannot remember a time when I didn’t have a crayon, marker, glue stick, ribbon, or something crafty in my hands! I could wander amongst the craft aisles all day every day, and be quite happy. With my hectic schedule, my craft time is my quiet time - so I named my blog The Quiet Moments ( I don't know what I'd do without my quiet time each day. It's just me, a cup of tea, and my favorite bits of crafty goodness!
 I’m often asked if I have a particular style – I’d say it’s eclectic. There really isn’t much I don’t like, or anything I won’t try. I love every aspect of the creative world.
 I’m honored to currently be part of several talented design teams, and am so thrilled to be a guest designer here today! "

 Taylor is also a part of the design team that brings
us this week's prize for 'The Cup of the Week'...
