Snowflakes and Mittens…

I had so much fun com­bin­ing these two new albums. And cov­er­ing them with vin­tage music sheets and wall­pa­per made it that much better! New Maya Road Mit­ten and Snowflake Coaster Albums and Beige Ging­ham Rib­bon. The Ging­ham Rib­bon also comes in Brown, Green, Pink, Red and Black and have Ging­ham Point Blos­soms that match each color… so super cute! Yep… another Hang­ing Chan­de­lier piece… I tell ya, I’m not kid­ding when I say I LOVE these… tomor­row I will show you the new Maya Road Mixed Scal­lop Tri­an­gle Ban­ner Album. You are...

Vellum Accented Buttons…

For those of you who loved my Vin­tage But­ton Bou­quet tuto­r­ial here is another take using the clear but­tons. The steps are the same to alter these I just replaced the ledger paper, music sheets and news­pa­per with vel­lum. These but­tons will make a beau­ti­ful “But­ton Bou­quet” or can be used as sub­tle accents for lay­outs, cards and mini albums. I guess I should just say, “Basi­cally any project you can think up.” So try the vel­lum… I think you will like it. Sup­plies Needed: Clear but­tons Webster’s Pages Sweet as Cherry Pie...

A little bit of Lola love…

Dang this lit­tle Lola puppy is so sweet and so GOOD! Terri and Lola came to visit today so of course that meant a photo shoot. Here are a few of our favorites.

Happy July 4th everyone…

My daugh­ter Terri and her fiance Laren are cer­tainly start­ing the 4th off with a bang… and this is the rea­son why.… Terri and Laren are now the proud par­ents of a seven week old Eng­lish Bull­dog puppy named Lola. And let me just say Lola has every­one hopping. It seems all she wants to do is sleep in your arms and if not she lets you know it with a very loud cry. I received a phone call this morn­ing at 3 a.m. from Terri let­ting me know how per­fect and smart Lola is about going potty out­side. Oh and FYI… Terri lives on the 4th floor....

What a great day…

Yes­ter­day my niece Amanda arrived. I picked her up from the air­port at 10 a.m and we did not stop until 10 p.m. She will be going to col­lege in the fall so the  first stop was IKEA… lots of great fun there. Then she wanted to hit Mar­shalls as this girl can never have too many shoes. Then we ate lunch and headed over to Tar­get. Once we fin­ished there we came home and made this.… well it was more like Amanda not me… I just grabbed stuff for her to use. I think she cre­ated the cutest doll. Now to find a lit­tle glass plate for her to sit...
