Blog Candy

Hi there! I'm still unpacking and trying to get settled into our new place! We don't have internet set up yet but my hubby is letting me use his computer real quick. :) I love our new house and am trying to decide on a paint color for my scrap room! Any suggestions?

You need to hop on over to Creative Journey, one of my FAVORITE BLOGS, for some yummy blog candy! Leave a comment on this post by January 25th to win some beautiful stuff!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Love Birds

Well, I guess I can't get enough of these cute love birds by Kim Hughes!  Here is another card I used them on!  

Just wanted to let you know I may be a bit of a ghost here on my blog over the next couple of weeks!  My husband and I decided this past weekend that we are going to be moving in TWO WEEKS!  So, needless to say I have a lot to do over the next couple weeks with packing and planning our son's 1st birthday party!  I will try to stop by here and show you a few things I have been working on, but hopefully I will be back going strong once we get settled.  We are moving out of our little two bedroom apartment into a 3 bedroom house with a pool!  Which means I will have MY OWN SCRAP-ROOM!  Well, at least until another baby comes along.  :)  

Don't forget I have lots of stamps for sale!  See this post or check my Etsy Store!

Hope are are all having a great Tuesday!

The last of the presents!

Here are the last two Christmas presents that I made for some men in my life!  Sorry the pictures are kind of yellow.  The first is a bookmark I made for my husband.  He said all he wanted for Christmas we for me to make him a bookmark with a picture of our son and I on it along with something reminding him of how much he has to be thankful for!  Isn't that so sweet?!  So here is what I came up with, and he loved it!  :)  


Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Fonts: CK Printer, CK Card Starters (
Other: Cricut Fabulous Finds Cartridge (Provo Craft), eyelet, twill

This second present I made for my dad.  He is one of those guys that is never in want for anything...just always content with what he has.  I made him this frame using a photo matte I had  sitting around and put it on a little easel.  I think he liked it!

More handmade Christmas gifts!

Here are some Christmas gifts I  made for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law.  I picked up the wood carved pieces at Michael's, covered them in some Christmas paper, added some paint, glitter, and ribbon!
