Good Wednesday Morning!

I have a little sickly Vanessa this morning, but she is definitely feeling better, so that's good. We wanted to show you yet another sneak peek at one of those new, funky QVC kits that should be on air this Friday!!

Isn't it yummy??

And, I believe that I do owe a RAK for the Earth Day recycling challenge. And the winner is- Patrice AND Celeste! Since you both participated in the challenge, I'll send you both out something cool! Thanks so much for playing along with me :)
Let me know if you would prefer something card making related or scrap kit related, ok?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Super Duper Easy recycled project!

My little Vanessa is quite the collector. She even follows me around when I am crafting and picks up all the tiny splatter of pieces of paper and small embellishments that land on the floor. She really *needs* a place to collect all her treasures! So, I turned one of those cute little American Crafts jars into a cute jar for Vanessa, complete with her own picture on it! Super easy and quick project too!

Tuesday's here and so is a little sneaky peek of one of those new QVC kits coming up...think neutral colors for home decor, and a bit of spring splashed in...

And, check back later today because I will have my very own recycled project up! Don't forget to link your project to my blog by the end of day today, as the drawing is happening first thing in the morning!

Monday Monday! We had a busy weekend full! How fun LOL! But, it does feel great to have things looking cleaner around the house. We also made it outside a bit for some park play time. Here are two favorite pics from the weekend.
Robyn enjoying the swing

And, Vanessa is excited to pick me beautiful bouquets again

I also did this quick layout this morning...I have seriously been lovin' cutting out my pics lately...I dare you to do it too, it's fun! :)

And last item of business for monday is that you NEED to do my earth day challenge from last week! Tomorrow is the last day to put a link on my blog to your recycled project- I'll have the girls pick a name from the hat Wednesday a.m.

A little follow up with this layout of that picture of the adorable, screeching 2 year old of mine. Poor thing just gets so frustrated!!

For this one, I took some blank, printed cards from a Dena Designs Card kit and used them as my pattern paper on the layout!

Oh, and those chipboard letters I have been using tons of....they should be in a kit on QVC next week!! I can't get enough of them!
Happy Friday! YAY! Today I wanted to send a special Happy Birthday wish to my mom. I can't believe she is 60 today!! WOW! She looks great for 60, seriously! I can't say enough good things about my mom...she inspires me and is definitely somebody to look up to. Thanks Mom for all you do! And, in honor of her, I did a little tribute page that has a few sneak peeks in it...

I also used some Sassafras and Scenic Route here.

Oh, and don't forget to post up your recycled project for the earth day RAK by next tuesday! :)

This week is flyin' by! Is it really Thursday already? Lots to do on this busy day and I have Robyn sitting here on my lap helping me for now. We wanted to share with you a little peek that is nice and bright and springy!

Kind of makes you want to go outside and play or something...well it does me anyway! :) Hope your day is wonderful!

I thought I would start the morning off with another little peek- this one is from a Dena Designs kit that will be upcoming on QVC :)- keep checking back for more of these little peeks until the show next friday!

fun, fresh, and funky- the 3 f's of this little project from an upcoming QVC kit. Fresh pattern, fun colors, and funky style abound! love it! :)
Hopefully, you'll be seein' these on the next QVC show (of course, sometimes they don't get to run everything scheduled, so no definites yet, but hopefully!!)

And, being the crunchy, hippie, earth lover that I am....I'm giving away a RAK in honor of earth day if you create a project with *something* recycled. Post it here and I'll do a drawing in one week!

Have a fun Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

*sigh* Is this the terrible two's, because Robyn seems to be the LOUDEST child I have ever known! Seems she is always bent out of shape and frustrated about something. Unfortunately I see this cute screechy face waaaay too often....

I have some peeks on projects brewing coming up later today!

Monday Monday!
I was amazed this morning at how much greener things are looking already! What a big difference just over the weekend. YAY!

I did a layout that I had planned on sharing this morning over the weekend, but decided that I am going to put it aside as a possible MMM entry. Not like I really have a chance of winning anyways, but it might be fun to enter! So, I'll share a few more pictures from the weekend instead!

Robyn checkin' out the daffodils in one of her new bargain dresses- I just love this pic for some reason

We had our first visit of the year to the river at the arb too!

And, Grandma Bernie stopped by and gave the girls these fun "wavy dancers"- the girls loved these!

Thanks for stopping by!

Today was bargain Saturday! YAY!

First, we went to the Kiwanis sale and I scored for the girls 3 dresses, 2 shirts, 1 shorts, and 1 hat for....$5.50! YAY for bargains!

Oh and we saw this really sweet chair/ottoman set...not too fond of the color, but the styles matches an old rocker we have perfectly- priced very right too! We didn't snag it today, but if I make my way there again next week and it is still there, then it will be meant to be.
Here's Vanessa pondering if this would be a comfy chair

We also stopped by the Farmer's Market for a bit and found some super yummy cookies!

Then later on, I had to make a quick trip to the store at the corner to get something for lunch and scored a FREE kids basketball hoop! YAY!

I think we are heading back outside now- have a great weekend!

Happy Friday!

Been busy today with work, but looking very much forward to the weekend! Just thought I would share a layout I did today. I rarely use black and white photos, but I recently downloaded these actions from the Pioneer Woman thanks to Celeste and I am loving this black and white conversion! So, thanks for the tip there Celeste and by the way, if you don't already visit her blog, go check it out- she has a cool challenge posted today!

so- here's the layout- lovin' the Daisy D's stuff!

YAY for spring! I was excited to see that my daffodils are about to bloom. And the forsythia- can't wait to add a splash of that springy yellow into some of my photos.

Well, here is my project share for today. Using goodies from a Dena Designs kit that should be appearing on QVC soon! :)

"just lovely"- yes, I even pulled out the ol' sewing machine!

ta-da! it's my blog! I hereby declare that I will do my best to update frequently, try to post some cool, inspiring things and maybe some sneak peeks of things I'm working on.
So....speaking of things I am working on...check out this cute little project- it's made from mock-up stuff, so the 'rub-ons' don't look that great, but overall I liked it! :)
