I hope you are all staying warm. The weather man promised me it would be warm and sunny over the weekend. I hope he keeps his promise. I have much more creativity when the sun is shining even though it may still be cold. The cloudy days just make me feel blah!

Did I mention I went to the eye doctor? I have to get bifocals. Can you believe that? You all know how young I am. To be told I need bifocals about did me in. I also have astigmatism which make wearing contacts a little tricky. When I am wearing my contacts I will also have wear a pair of readers (if I am doing any close up work). Can you believe this??? I tell you what the only kind of glass I want to be wearing are sunglasses!'s creation is something I made a while ago. Thanks for looking!

Bug Collection....

Good Morning,

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Happy Monday!

Boy is Sam excited. He is Star of the Week at school this week. This means the bulletin board in the classroom is about him. He is taking in some pictures from our Disney vacation to put up on it. It is so great to see both Grace and Sam excited about school. This has been a great school year so far.

The cards you see today are all three of the cards in the Wow Flower kit. Hope you like them.

Thanks for looking!

Good Morning! Well my hopes for spring turned into the reality of winter. Usually I don't mind winter so much, but we have had a lot of cold snow weather. I guess the last few winters spoiled me.

The card I am posting today is another one for the Wow Flower kit.

Thanks for stopping by.

Good Morning! It's the weekend.

Sam has Biddy Bears this morning. He loves basketball. Good thing too. He has his Daddy's height. He is also a pretty good jumper. I never really thought about it but, jumping is an important thing when it comes to basketball.

Well, today's card is another card from the Wow Flower kit. I really enjoyed making these cards. I have been in, let's call it, a creative slump. (Also the reason I have not scheduled my next card camp.) These kits have made it easy for me to still feel creative while in this slump. They also have give me some new layout ideas. So hopefully my "slump" is ending.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend & thanks for taking a moment to visit my blog.

The weekend is here! We will be at basketball most of the morning. I have an eye appointment in the afternoon. I ran myself out of contacts. Not a good thing to do.

This is a frame Grace made last week on her mini break from school.

Thanks for looking!

Hey, Heather it was nice to see a comment from you. Hope all is well have you and Adam taken Ami sledding yet???? I bet he loves the snow as long as the temps stay on the warmer side.

The sun was out for two days in a row! Spring must be on its way! Woo Hoo!

Todays card is made from one of the Stampin' UP! card kits. The kit is called Wow Flowers. I love this color combo. You can find the kit on page 167 of the Spring-Summer Idea Book & Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 5...

Wow it is day 5 of our 5 day weekend. This time really flew by. Sam got to go to a friends house for a sleep over last night. Boy was he excited. I think Grace was too. Sometimes it is good to have a little break from each other. By 8:02 she was saying she missed him.

I guess I am not ready to put away my Christmas stamps. The kit I posted today is a Simply Card Kit in the Fall/Winter catalog. I really like these kits. They come in handy when I have a creative block.

I have the new Spring/Summer catalog available. For those of you who requested one I will get it to you in the next day or so.

Thanks for looking!

It's the weekend....


We have a busy Saturday morning. Grace has basketball at the YMCA and Sam has Biddy Bears Basketball at the Field House. That pretty much takes up our Saturday morning. I am grateful they are at separate times and I get to go to both. I love watch our kids play sports.

Today's cards are just another mention of how much I like these snowflakes! LOL!!!! I know your are all probably pretty tired of seeing my snowflake cards. There will be some new cards posted next week.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! No school today for Grace and Sam. Today is Records Day. No school on Monday either for Martin Luther King Day. No school yesterday...due to the weather. Wow! What lucky kids!

The card you see is one more snowflake card. These cards have been fun to make.

Have a great day. A special thanks to all of you who placed an order with me. I truly appreciate your business!

Have a great day!

Remember Me??????

Anybody out there???? Remember me??? I had to contact blogger to get my password reset, because I could not remember what it was. It has been tooooooo long!
I never realized how many people checked out my blog until I stopped posting. You guys need to post comments, so I know! were your holidays? We had a great time. We are now back in the swing of school, basketball, CCD. Grace and Sam would not admit they were ready to go back to school after the break, but I know they were. There were no complaints about getting up and going to school that first morning. Did you hear my sigh of relief on the first day??? LOL I miss having the home like crazy.
The pictures you see are of balls that were hung from our light fixtures during the holidays. I made a set of silver ones and copper ones. This was a craft that a neighbor taught us at our Thursday morning coffee. We made them out of Sugar Gum tree pods and tooth picks. This was a very easy project and great for kids to do.
Don't forget to order your Love You Much promo and start making those Valentines! I have an order going in on Thursday. Just call or e-mail me to place your order.
Have a great day!
