If you are one of the 7 people that read my blog and have been wondering where in the world I am…I think I'm here…in Never Never Land…LOL! I thought if I made it to Friday…I'd be good. No such luck! Oh well, I'm still pluggin' away and I'll make it back to reality soon enough.
I've been challenged. By my 10 year old. She bet me $5 that I can't get up everyday at 5:30 am, be dressed with make up before I drop the girls at school until Saturday. Well, Mama has risen to this challenge…and I think everybody is pleasantly surprised! Except it's hard to keep late hours when you rise so very early. My eyes are slamming shut at 9:30…dang, I'm tired!
Our little 3 ring circus has been in full swing…lots going on in the past few weeks…our little dude turned TWO on Monday…oh my. Can you believe it? I can't. TWO. I love this picture…
I took Cash to the park on his birthday…he had SO much fun with the girls. Scott came by after work…my hard working hubs.
His birthday was pretty low key…just had fun. He helped me make cupcakes (he picked the Funfetti :), he even cracked and threw an egg in…WHOLE. yes, I took that one out 🙂
Still can't believe he's TWO.
Did I mention this is going to be a really long post?
You gotta check this out!!!
Oh, and speaking of Valentines…check out the latest over at Got Crafts?
Val has a new download available that is just scrumptious!
Meanwhile back in La La Land…or Never Never Land– I have been designing some Fiskars classes…which I really enjoy because these are very TOOL oriented projects…I love the challenge of creating new techniques with tools…very fun. A little birdy told me that Fiskars is releasing some TOTALLY AWESOME new punches at CHA…
I hope you've already got your hot little hands on the scalloped Punches that were released a while back…oh my…they are adorable. But now…hold the phone!!! They are doing stamps to coordinate with the scallop punch shapes!!!!!!!!!! Plus there is a NEW border punch that is simply scallops! (See below card and on several other below projects). IT ROCKS!!! My assignments for CHA were to do vintage styled projects using the chic new stamps…here's a peek:
Love the white Versamark ink on the beige paper…so elegant!
This is Fiskars' new rich pigment ink in gold…very nice. I call this my Civil War card. 😉
Didn't even let my Stickles dry on this one before I snapped this pic 😉 LOL!! The above stamps are new Heidi Grace designs.
And you know my house addiction…or some of you might 🙂
I did this one for the booth as well…
Lots of lace, layers, and the ELEGANT new stamps from Fiskars!! OOoh La LA!!
In other news…guess what? It's coming…I know many of you are waiting for it! I'm so excited…I can't wait!!!
So get ready…it's coming soon! We've got some surprises up our sleeves this time around!
Did I mention I recently had an anniversary? I think I did…but I wanted to share this:
It's a page I did with some fun stuff for Fiskars…love that Letters Home line by Kimberly Poloson. Thanks to Scarlet Lime…I'm all about using beads and buttons and baubles and wire lately. Just something different and fresh!
Oh, speaking of Scarlet Lime…I LOVE that this months' project kit had a wooden hoop!!! I haven't used mine yet…but here's the layouts I did:
I've been wanting to use that & for SO LONG!!!
Simple… but I love this pic of US.
And this one too…we so seldom are able to get a family pic…I love this!!!
Sophie– I hope you see this one!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Oh Oh…I gotta show you this. I'm such a junk hoarder! I was making cornbread the other night when I realized I was down to my last egg…
Oh no! Better add that to the grocery list! BUT WAIT!! Wouldn't this plastic egg carton make a perfect…
Drawer organizer!!! For beads and gems and loose little thingamabobs!! Yep! Sure did! Love it! Get yourself a dozen free eggs when you buy this great little organizer! LOL!!
Well, goodness this gab session is going on an hour now…can you tell I've been holed up working my tail off for a while now! As much as I'd like to stay…I better go. Must clean up my space to get back to the grindstone!
