I love it!

This is what I did yesterday...and I love it! It was so fun to make and I'm so proud of myself for buying the material and directions for it and actually completeing it within a short time frame - less than two weeks. Yipee !!! What do you think?

Last week I was scrapbooking and decided that after I make a page, I will use some of the leftovers to make some cards...this is one of those cards. (I have a huge pile of scraps that I will "someday" use - do you have one too?) I love how it turned out and that I was able to use three of the images from my new stamp set, Boho Backgrounds. I also am finally using my SU cider paper and not hoarding it anymore! I will add a sentiment when the time comes to use the card. I used all SU product except that chocolate gingham which I WISH they would start carrying! That is also a leftover scrap. Have a great day!

old jeans?

Yesterday was a good productive craft day - I can't say I did much else, but a lot was crossed off my to do list. One of the things on that list was this little bag for a little friend who it turning two. Her mom asked me to make one after seeing the one I made for my daughter. It was lots of fun and I just love the big flowers on the back pockets...but then again, I'm all about big flowers! I really hope she likes it! Have a great day!

Last week was full of a gazillion batches of caramel corn for Valentine's Day and 6 dozen cupcakes for a church fireside, (no pictures of those, althought they looked great and tasted even better I must admit!) so I thought I'd do a little scrapbooking this week. This page sat on my desk with just the pictures and "samantha" for a while. This morning, I was able to finish it up and it went from being one of my least favorite to one of my favorite pages. I stamped on the ribbon (the first time) and love how it turned out. I used Olivia from Lizzie Anne

Designs. In the picture the little piece of paper with the primas and pink brads really stands out, but irl, it doesn't. It matches the dots in the paper. I rarely use a whole piece of patterned paper on a layout. I think that is what bugged me about this layout for so long, but i'm at peace with it now :) Have a great day!

I love little socks!

This is a gift I made for a friend who is having a baby soon. I just love these little socks! I love baby socks - they are so cute and tiny and precious! I also like to include a headband with a matching bow - my sis-in-law taught me how to make the headband and I came up with the bow. They are so fun, Little Bit had one in just about every color for a while. The bows are interchangable, with flowers, just ribbon tied in a bow, etc.... So fun! Have a happy day!

a sunday morning find....

me: (fixing Little Dude's hair for church) go find your sister so I can do her hair too.

she leaves, doesn't return.

me to hubby: where's Little Bit?

him: I don't know

me: not good - it's too quiet...the door to the bathroom is closed...she's hiding in the bathroom...with nailpolish!!! "i paint my toes mama, that be fun?" (in her cute sweet little voice!) and the bath tub and her dress, and the rug...oh dear. I grabbed the camera, only to hear "don't do will only encourage her, smile while I take your picture but you're in trouble!" He just doesn't understand the neccesity of having this picture! My thoughts were, don't get mad, get the camera, someday this will be funny. Anyone know how to get nailpoish out of the dress...she hasn't even worn it yet...

In the mail

My sis-in-law picked up this mailbox for me last year and I'm finally using it. My target didn't carry them, and she found them and sent them to me - Thanks Brandy! I made white chocolate covered pretzels to fill it and covered this with some old paper that I found in my stash. I used the heart from SU Time Well Spent and the xo's are from a retired SU hostess set. Add a bunch of misc ribbons and a little bling on the heart and I love it! I dropped it off at the po yesterday - I hope my mom enjoys it! I have few more to make for my girls, hopfully in time for v-day!

I'm in the moood....

I've been in the Valentine's paper crafting mood which for me is very rare. I tend to be in the "Valentine's is a over-rated Hallmark holiday" crowd. But this year I began making the valentine's for my daughter's preschool party and got infected! I made this little thing to sit on top of my piano. I used various SU sets and a couple from Lizzie Anne Designs. I love my little Mary's Moo Moo's - they add the perfect touch I think. I hope you have a great day!

baby carriage

I love this baby carriage from Lizzie Anne Designs - it is so fun to play with. This idea has been running around in my head for a couple days, I really like how it turned out. I used SU celery, apricot and tempting turquoise for the colors, not colors that I normally use. The little charms that hang off the "welcome little one" say love and cherish. Have a great day!
