Lookie what I got in the mail yesterday!!!!! I just love receiving handmade cards in the mail. It is such a great feeling. Isn't this the card the cutest???
My friend Heather made it. She stopped by the other day with her adorable son, Ami. We had a nice chat and then she made my day by sending me a handmade card. I got so excited when I saw the envelope all stamped with swirls and a bird sticker. It was just adorable. Thanks, Heather!

We have a very busy day today. Lots to do. Grace and Sam have their first Pennance this morning. Then they are off to a birthday party this afternoon.

This is one of a couple of Easter cards I am making. This set is called An Egg-cellent Easter. It is in the Occasions Mini Catalog. The designer paper I used is from the Sale-a-bration brochure. I just love these colors. Kind of a different twist on Spring colors.

Well we have survived the parties. Woo Hoo! Grace had her party Friday. The girls were wonderful. We had a lot of fun. The crafts were a hit. All the girls got along great!

These are the Thank You notes Grace will be sending out. They are made with a Stampin' Up! set called Garden Whimsy. I embellished the tulip with Dazzling Diamond glitter and Crystal Effects.

Today my babies turn 8! Wowza! Time flies....

This card is one I made for my Mom to give to Sam for his birthday. I love the Cricut! It is a papercrafter's BFF!

Grace is having her sleepover/birthday party tonight. Pretty exciting things going on at our house! Auntie Shelley (my bff) will be here to help with all the happenings. We have a couple of crafts that we will be doing. We also will be playing some games and be wrapping the evening up with a movie and popcorn.

Don't forget to place your Sale-a-bration orders! I really appreciate your business!

Thanks for looking...

Good Morning!

The kids do not have school today! Woo Hoo! Hopefully they will sleep in a little and catch up on their sleep. They are both under quota. Today we are going shopping. We are in search of a suit for Sam and a white dress for Grace. (First Communion is approaching quickly and I need to get on the ball).

The card I have posted is one I made for my girlfriend. She has a wedding next month and asked if I would make her a card. I love it when that happens.

The set I used is Priceless, you can find it on page 121 of the current Idea Book & Catalog. Speaking of IBC's. I do have them for sale. The are 7.00 (reg. pr. 9.95) or FREE with a 50.00 order. Speaking of 50.00 orders don't forget about Sale-a-Bration ends on 3/30/09. Time is running out to get your FREE stamp sets!

Well, last night we had the 2nd grade program to go to. It was great! The show was called Wacky Weather. The kids did an awesome job!

Today I am posting the book marks I made in celebration of Grace & Sam's birthday and March-Reading Month. The kids will pass them out to their class and some of the staff on Friday.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Well one sleepover down one to go. Holy Cow!!! 4 boys have the energy of 20. I tell you what. I thought 4 was good number but, man there was a lot of energy in our house this weekend. I am not even going to share what time those 8 year olds went to sleep, but I will say it was early Saturday moring before they were out. I don't think I have stayed up that late since my college days.

Enjoy this sunny day!

Thanks for stopping by!

I have been working on crafts for Grace's Birthday party. This is one of the items the girls will be making. The journals will have each of the girls name on them. Their class does a lot of writing. I can not believe they are writing in cursive already.
I don't know if you can tell but the bear paws have glitter in them. They will also be making daisy pens to go with them. That is what the daisies you see in the picture are.
Grace is so excited about her slumber party. She has been to a number of them this year and now it is her turn. The little girl can not be any more excited. I have recruited my best bud Shelley to help out with the crafts. I am so grateful she can come and help.
Well, it is a birthday party weekend for us. Last night Grace went to one and today Sam is going to one. Busy, busy busy.
Have a great weekend!

Wow, I can not believe how fast this week has gone. I have been busy getting things together for Grace and Sam's birthday parties. They will be turning 8 on the 20th. Talk about hard to believe. These last 8 years have just flown by.

Sam is having some buddies spend the night next Friday. He has labeled it a Wii Sleepover. He is so stinkin' excited about it, he can't sleep. He decided he wants to do a craft in addition to playing games. So I came up with a journal for them to make. Instead of the word notes the journals will have each of the boys names on them. Their class is really big on writing in journals. I am going to print some pictures of the party for them to put inside.

Well thanks for stopping by!

Hope you all enjoy your Sunday.
