I am really trying to get back in the swing of things, and get organized again and as you can see I started with consistently updating my blogs (I have THREE). So, as I have said I am going through my SURPLUS of supply and actually using it. Have you ever thought the stuff you bought is becoming more of a collection? I have, which shows in my tubs of stuff. So, This week I will be highlighting a simply scrapping kit... this one is retired, but hey I am USING IT!! Can you believe I actually got some birthday cards out on time?? I know CRAZY!!
Here is DAY #1

If you have never used a Simply Scrapping Kit, then you NEED to. They make for quick cards and you can make LOTS of them!! Contact me to order yours or go directly to my website HERE and order from my there.

DRUM ROLL, My Wall is Complete!

Okay, I have been working on this collection for quite some time. I posted the first three frames of this set awhile ago, and since I have joined a scrapbook group in the area I have decided it is just about time I start finishing projects I started. So, this was a HUGE check off my list!! I am going to go back and add an embellishment to match the other three, but I am pretty darn proud of myself!! I am loving it. Next picture is what my wall looks like!! I hope you enjoy!

YODELAHEEHOO! Knee Slappin' Good Time!

I am trying to go through my HEAP of supplies (some SU! and some not) and actually start using them, so I can make room for some fun NEW stuff. Well, in that means some fun stuff gets created. Enjoy these invites I helped a friend make for her daughters 4th birthday!

Original Sample Found Online

What we came up with...

The Birthday Card I made for her gift..notice the shimmer (more notes on this technique soon)

My son is still little and besides church and the occasional coloring page he doesn't make many things I keep (don't tell him). However, we had the opportunity to attend a painting party at his best friend Emma's house and well, I just couldn't throw away his first "Canvas Masterpiece." So, I thought to myself... what can I do to use it in the house? Well, as I began to let my creative juices flow I realized the colors of his painting match the boys' bathroom and then I thought, hey we sell some fun animals in our Definitely Decorative catalog, so a shopping I went. I decided "W is for Whale" would be PERFECT... see what you think!

Drew reminds me ALL the time that this is his painting! He is soooo proud of it! Contact me today to order your supplies!! Or, you can order directly through my website by clicking HERE.

SOMETIMES Cheating is Okay!!

Okay, last Mother's Day and Father's Day (2010) I was determined to make my own cards and well that just didn't happen. I guess I can chalk it up to having a baby just over a month old, a 2 1/2 year old running around and a new move to TX. So, quickly thought to myself, this is OKAY! I love Shutterfly as a back-up because they often have specials and even FREE stuff. So, it is okay to give yourself a break once in awhile and let someone else do the work.

Okay, as many of you know I have not been on the blog much over the last few months after having my second son, and well I need EASY things to make that take little time & are little cost.

So, what Grandparent doesn't like hand prints? I have to admit the idea wasn't mine alone. My very crafty sister-in-law and amazing upline started this idea. When her kiddos are around 2yrs, she puts something together similar to this for her parents, and I just love being at their house and seeing the hand prints displayed, so last year when Drew was 2, I thought I have to add to the collection... hence the card. We sent these on Grandparents Day 2010!

I loved this gift my Mom sent to Drew. Who says you can't stamp on ANYTHING!! Drew loves this cup because he knows it is his ONLY, which I guess is a kid thing! Enjoy the pic!
