Christmas Cards...

Do you make yours? Or do you send out store purchased cards? Believe it or not I don't make time for that...LOL I think I might this year though, I will have to see how things so in December. I have my December Daily parts sitting down there on the floor in my scrap room, it's on the floor because there is no room on the table ...oops.

So in my effort to create Christmas cards that require no additional purchases I have come up with these....I'd still like to do one more bright one...maybe later tonight :)

Made this four hours...I was supose to start my December daily but didn't do that, having second thoughts on the paper I want to I made this after I bought this fab little album today at the Learning Factory. It's an American Crafts modern album (6x6) I just love that thing! I want another one and they come in other colours!

I also picked up some BoBunny Blitzen paper to use in this mini. It was really really fun to create this, ready to do another now :)

people under 5....

...are so stomach does flip flops when she talks, ok, wait let me re-phrase that or you will think I was sea sick most of my day...LOL...she says the funniest things! I love that she doesn't understand time yet....she says yesterday which could really mean yesterday, last week or even last month. Today is today, she is good with that. Tomorrow is the day after today or next week or even next month.

She often says to me...mommy, in the morning will it be tomorrow? So here is my layout based on one of the things that makes my stomach do flip flops :)

Crate Paper is the wonderful stuff I used in this layout.

Rollercoaster Ride of a week!

Surgery went well, recovery not so much. I am better though and getting stronger each day, recovery from all the morphine, not fun. Looking forward to things to come around here.

Earlier this week I went crazy adn created 7 layouts, was fun! I found this Canadian company called Lucky 7 Factory, and they operate in Quebec. Her papers are devine! Not boy not girl...kind of in-between. So the first layout is using those papers with the exception of the backgroung paper, which is Crate.

This is a layout I made with the first Boys Rule Kit and a Creative Scrappers sketch (link to CS in my side bar)

Thanks for looking!!

Sunday, July 10, 2011's July...

Where have I been? Not blogging obviously. Getting ready for some fun that's for darn sure. Thinking about a new blog format, just having standardized blog topics...something different and new for the new blog design that will be happening shortly.
Kids are loving the pool, they swim every day, Josh is done school and has various activities for the two weeks are a like. This week Rich is home with the kiddos and they are heading to Port Colborne for a few days, visit Grandma in the woods. They will be back Tuesday and then Rich leaves for a weekend with the boys....I will take Friday off and we will head to Bingemans for the day (is that ok with you mom? LOL) Then we will walk to our friends house around the corner for a pot-luck dinner and an outdoor movie night. Should be fun!
Tomorrow after work I'm meeting a friend for dinner in Burlington...looking forward to that....
Well I guess I better get back to cleaning my scraproom....what a complete and utter disaster...

Birthday for Josh

This is the never ending birthday party number 3, yes, 3. First we had the "friends" party, very small, just a few boys over but never the less it was a "party". Then on his birthday I brought a cake to school for his class mates (yes I actually did look like on of those moms who had their shit together - it was brief though - LOL) Josh also picked out where he would like to have his birthday dinner so off to King's Buffet for some Chinese food, then home for his gifts. We then celebrated for the third time on Mother's Day with my side of the family and he was able to see his cousins....much fun it was.

And we're not done weekend promises to deliver more.

Managed to get three layouts done this weekend, super me, or maybe stupid me....LOL depending on how you look at it. My scrap room is a bomb, un-believable mess, Miss Olivia was in there "creating" LOOK OUT!!! Shudder at the thought of returning.

Went on a 3 hour tour on Saturday, it was my mother's day gift, 1/4 tank of gas and three hours....very very exciting it was....more on that this week and some gorgeous photos.

Been burning the candle at both ends lately and I need to sslllooooowwww down. Need to think......have an idea, it's a doosie of an idea too, so exciting....will share more soon, I just have to get few more things in place......

Time for spring..

So beautiful out today, lots of opportunities to take photos but I didn't...too bad I couldn't take a photo of the funny things Olivia says....oh my gosh she is just too funny...I created this layout using a sketch created by Carol, it's really different, I loved the process.

Happy Easter friends...

New Crate Paper...

It's wonderful stuff! Crate Paper has a few new lines that are to die for! I got my hands on Emma's Shop and Toy box and created a few layouts. The pink one was inspired by a sketch from Creative Scappers.

Update on the chandilier.....found white shades (I'm suprised) they look so pretty! Will take a photo soon.

Sunday, March 27, 2011

So pretty!

So my wonderful dad came over to my house and did some electrical work for us, and he put up Olivia's new chandilier in her room. I dry brushed it with pink paint and hung beads from it, so pretty, but I think the shades are a bit to yellow so I'm going to see about replacements tomorrow, if not I will re-cover these shades.

Busy weekend, and things are winding down, such a relief. Here it is Sunday night and I have yet to start my final assignment that is worth 40% off my mark. Hopefully I can whip it up in an hour (yea right) and be in bed before midnight.

Lots of things finishing for us, night school, hockey and can-skate and then so many things starting again....night school for me, this time it's pottery! So excited about that one! I am taking that class with my beautiful friend Sheryl. Olivia starts swimming and Josh in ball hockey. Just enough busy for this house.

Oh have to share this fab place with you! For those who use SCAL (are you paying attention April? LOL) It's called Under a Cherry Tree, really fun!

A layout to match the new blog wear...

It's a bit different for me, it's growing on me, I think....I look at it and say
"I love it!" Then I turn around and say "That looks dumb!" LOL Whatever.
It was fun to stick all those fun things on it.

Free blog wear! Gotta love it! I found it here, very fun stuff in there.
Will have to do until I have Kristine Davidson do my make over for me.

Going to be painting a chandalier this weekend! Yummy fun to share soon!

Yea it's the weekend!

My weekend started last night, took today off to be with the kids on the last day of March break. Today we went to Fenwood Farms to buy some organic meat, the kids got to see the emus and two of their eggs. Tomorrow is gymnastics and skating for Olivia, Josh won't be going to hockey practice because he has started a cough...don't want to push him and his cough is usually activity induced. In the afternoon we are going to Niagara Falls, need to go to the bank (yes it's far for us...LOL )and then we are going site seeing and dinner...yea!

The layout is one I created a few weeks ago for the tag layout we do a Scrap-tures, it's really fun. We have a starting layout and it is emailed to the first girl on the list, she uses it as inspiration to do a layout and then it is emailed to the next girl on the list. Teresa organizes it all and does a great job at it. At the end they are all posted on the Scrap-tures blog.

Long time no see...

Above and below...Cosmo Cricket Circa

Fancy Pants from last summer I think...

More Cosmo Cricket circa, the next two...was this months kit at Scrap-tures.

This is a exclusive sketch for Scrap-tures from Kristine Davidson at Creative Scrappers.

I'm not finished my homework yet. Can I tell my instructor my dog ate it? That would be a funny site as my homework is to paint three identical images using different colour schemes in the colour wheel...poor dog would have very colourful deposits....LOL

Been playing with lots of paper this week though....last weekend I was in Barrie with the girls from Scraptures and we had lots of fun together.

This week Josh and his team mates made it into the semi-finals so we will have some really fun hockey games coming up.

This week is March break! Yea! No lunches to pack!
I've got to get my homework done.....
