We try and do this each year to show how big everyone is getting. It is a great gift for a grandparent, also. this year was feet.

You can pick up a kit at Michael's and they even have the cool stamps to use also.

New SU Stuff.

Thank you Brown...

Got my new box of stuff. Trying to go through all of my stuff - overwhelming as I fill a huge tub full of old stamp sets, etc.... Then, am also trying to get pictures organized, so I can fill some scrapbooks - lots of work to do here.

Will try to do a new card soon....

Who knows...

I keep thinking maybe I should try to get published and have some motivation and then I decide not to....

Ugh, procrastination...
What fun.

Teacher Thank You Card

Another cute idea for teachers.

I am terrible.

Ok , so I have been not blogging at all.

Since June - I have been to Mississippi, San Francisco, Monterey Bay and Carmel, Napa and Sonoma, California. Then, I went to Ohio, Michigan and Illinois. So, I am exhausted and finally am back home.

But, had a great time enjoying the U. S. of A.

I did not get my shipment of SU stuff yet, maybe Monday or Tuesday!
I did do one swap of hostess swap. will post that soon.

Enjoy your summers.

Kids Activities...

What is too much??? Hmm, I ponder. I did lots of things when I was little - but I think too many things are too much.

So, I told my two older kids - they could do two activities outside of school.

So, Cooper (4), has preschool on T/Th. He does Kindermusik on Mondays and Tae Kwon Do on MWF afternoons.... Oh - and church choir that I am the choir director (another story for another time.)

Morgan (5), has school MTWThF, and Gymnastics (was on T and now on M, but we stopped for May). She has tae kwon do now also, was MWF afternoons with Cooper and now she is in the bigger group - so can go all week if wanted.

Next year, Morgan would love Kindermusik so I signed her up. and she would love cheerleading and girl scouts.... where do you draw the line???

Oh - Ella is enrolled in Kindermusik also at 18 months, while both the others are in school....

Too many balls to juggle!!!

Another swap - alphabet one..

Ok, this could be a great gift - an alphabet book 6x6...

I did two letters - here is an example of R.

Go to splitcoast to sign up - it is under swaps and this one ends June 1.

R - red, rectangle, ring, rattle and ribbon...

Scrapping ...

Today I did a scrapbook page.. See what you think. Disney...


I am in this swap for cards - tag cards. Mine is a birthday one. I like the way it turned out. All bold brights from Stampin up - all images are stampin up! Thanks for looking.

Ella is growing.

My baby is growing. Here she is at 17 months old!

First Tooth Lost!

Ok, so Morgan (my oldest - now 5), just lost her first tooth! She was in a store and tripped and fell and out it came. Ok - it was dangling by a thread. But, cool-o!!

Abu Ghraib

Saw the HBO special about the Rory Kennedy documentary of Ghosts of Abu Ghraib.

Horrifying the things that happened in Iraq. Wish this war would disappear.

Melted Snowman

This is the coolest. Ok - lots of glue and then we used pipe cleaners for arms, buttons, a ribbon for scarf and those foam hats and googly eyes - and a foam nose. So neat!!!!

Frog Card

So, I had a stamp club and we did this card. Pink cardstock cuttlebugged with hearts. Ribbon. Then, we stamped the frog with black and used pencils to color. Super easy... But, cute, too...

Valentines Swap

Ok, I got my swap. So cute. I got a sweet pea soap and lotion, from Bath and Body works, I got some chipboards (adorable). I got chocolates, ribbon and sucker/whistles. Great job!


Ok, so I had a bunko night and made these - even though my kids really wanted them. so simple. Rice crispie treats with white frosting and then add on some conversation hearts...

Thought this was cute.

You Grow Girl!

I have a friend expecting a baby, and loved this card. I got it in a swap and it is stamped on the back by Laura Styn. I am sending it out today but thought I would share.

Disney - here we come!!!

Isn't this cute? It is supposed to be a top to wear at Disney for my six year old - oh, a dress , but it is a little short - so guess we will wear shorts with it. I got it on ebay!!!

Valentine Card

I used the chocolate chip background, then pretty in pink cuutlebug hearts. I used ribbon from flirty package . I used my new marva square scalloped punch, then stamped the circle of friendship stamp with the two circle punches. voila! easy card.

Cute Valentine Gift Idea

Ok, this is way easy. I just stamped some address labels and put them over chocolates. Then, put them inside the bag, made a red label, stamped the wording and done! Great little happy gift!

Target Mailboxes

Ok, so I found these mailboxes and love doing these!! Such fun...

Valentines Swap

I made this for a valentine swap. Hope she likes it.
