I like FAST and simple projects because frankly as the Mom of two little boys and a third on the way, my brain just doesn't function fast or focus on one thing to long. So, at the end of our MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) year last May, I made these quick and easy candy tins for my table. I literally used DSP (designer series paper) scraps, and some old accents I had. The container I found in the Target dollar bins (love them)!!

Evan's 1st Birthday Card

As I was pondering a theme for Evan's first birthday this past April, I really couldn't come up with anything since, well, he was turning "1" and REALLY not in to anything. So, I thought polka dots could be fun! This card was sooo simple to make!

I used varying circle punches and lots of fun colors! I could use our Stampin Up! punches EVERY day, they make projects simple and fast!

Just Because Gift...for Renee!

I meant to post this one sooner, but I just realized that obviously didn't happen. So, better late than NEVER!! Here is a little wedding planner I sent to my friend Renee as she was planning her wedding. This is made from a regular Manila folder... there is such magic in the simple things!!

Cool huh? I wish I could totally claim this idea, but the original idea came from my downline Keri! She is AMAZING!! I just tweaked it a bit!! Thanks Keri for sharing!
