I just can't help but feel lighthearted when I see this face.
We had a great Christmas! The first that Jonah actually opened presents.
Travis enjoyed opening presents in his new In-N-Out shirt.
Jonah couldn't get enough banana crackers (stocking stuffer). Tessa got a handmade coat and hat from Gramy. I got a handmade wooden utensil holder from Grampy. Jakob got a handmade wooden top from Grampy this year. So cool. I need pics of those, I only have video. Have a great day!

Punch Wreath

I used one of my corner punches to make this fun little wreath. The card is 5.5x5.5 inches to give you an idea of the wreath size. Hope you all are having a great day. I already went to see my little ones sing at their school Christmas program. It was sweet...too bad they didn't sing "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth" for Tessa.

For my coworkers

I had fun making these little trinkets for my coworkers. The best part about them is how the display cards came out. I love how it perfectly frames each pair of earrings. Kraft cardstock, stamp from Technique Tuesday and Basic Black ink. I love giving something personal like this even though it takes a little more time. Have a great day.

Oooh I had fun with this one. I ran a tranparency through my cuttlebug and then used my alcohol inks on the back of it to give it a pop of color. I have a ton of work to do but I hope you're all having a wonderful day!

My li'l jack o lantern

I knew it would happen, but this has been kind of ridiculous. She's lost four teeth within a one month period. She makes me smile every time I see her grin. Then she starts to giggle and we're in fits.

She can be super silly like her daddy too. I love it! Have a great day.

Another one bites the dust

Last night while eating a rolled taco...Tessa lost yet ANOTHER tooth. That other front one is sure to go soon too. She cracks me up when she talks and smiles. I love my baby girl. Have a great day.

Rudolf the sparlke nosed reindeer.

Just a really simple little Christmas card. I colored in the nose with red and then added red stickles glitter. The snowflakes were stamped in River Rock ink. Hope you're having a holly jolly time!

Itty Bitty Snowman

Isn't he a cutie? I had fun coloring him with my prismas. We just got back from a four day trip to California. I'm exhausted and happy to be back but also glad that we could be there for Troy and Kelly's wedding.
They're awesome.

Sparkle Tree

A Christmas Card for a dear friend. I used my wood grain background stamp behind the tree. The tree diecut is from Quick Cutz. I've had that snow paper for AGES! I just embossed it with a cb folder. I add ice glitter to the tree and whalah, beauty. I hope you like it Dawn.

Only a Matter of Time

In the car...waiting for Daddy to come out of Harbor Freight. That tooth has been SO ready to come out for SO long. I told her to pull on it a little and then it was all wonky. She didn't like that one I grabbed a tissue and pulled downward. Whalah!
Happy girl...the tooth fairy is coming tonight! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Take care!

Felt Tissue Case Fun

I made this little guy quite quickly and I LOVE him. I'll be doing variations of these for some of those nearest and dearest to me for the holidays. I love how perfectly the travel tissue pack fits inside and how chic it is! Have a great day.

Simply The Best

This was a quick and cute one. I love this tree die by Quickcutz. I hope you all are having a great day. I have three kiddos with strep, but they all seem to be doing so much better today. It's amazing what antibiotics will do in such a short time. Take care.

Grandma Series

Before my mom moved to Pennsylvania a month ago I made sure to get a picture of her with each of my children. This is the first lo in my "Grandma series". I'm going to do a similar lo for each of the picture and have my mom tell me one thing she loves about each child. I miss my mama. She's too far away now and I'm not sure when we'll be able to travel across country to see her. I pray that it's sooner rather than later. Have a great day!

Veteran's Day 2009

I just wanted to share that I am so thankful for the country that we live in. It is an amazing place. I'm grateful to all those who serve in the military and who have served before. It is truly a great sacrifice. My grandfather served in WWII and the horrors he witnessed were unbelievable. I just wish he was still here so I could tell him the service he gave to this country makes me glad to be his granddaughter.

Fix a shirt in a flash

So I've got this shirt and I like the way it looks on me only problem is I STAINED it! Can you believe it? Me, stain a white shirt! What are the odds. I've exhausted the remedies of stainlifting so I chose a new direction...applique!!!!

OFFENDING STAIN New and Improved shirt with applique!

Close up. Isn't it cute? I'm so happy I can wear my T again. Have a great day.

Flashback Friday

Even after all these years I still think this is a pretty cute card. Although I'd probably add a few more details nowadays. Hope you're all having a great day!
Here's another take.

Family that sweats together stays together.

Daily Dose of Jillian gets your motor runnin'. I kept trying to post the video but it won't upload.

Sharing some more spookiness...grossness...

Thank you Wal-Mart cake decorating person for making my day a lively one. Shhhh, Frank. That lipstick is horrible. No, WAIT, it's Michael Jackson come back to haunt us in the form of a cake.
Poor Kitty got half run over.

What my eyes look like when Jonah stays up all night.

Ummmmm, Paris should sue her make up artist.

Do skeletons even HAVE brains? Come ON!
Have a great day.

Spooky Forest

I love to make Halloween cards but I don't think people send them very often. The tree image is by Magenta, the sentiment and the pumpkin are by studio g. I hope everyone is having a great Friday!

Ear, Ear!

Thanks to my dear friend Jenny I learned to make these lovelies today! Just experimenting, but this was really enjoyable and I hope to make more in the future.The tiny blue/green ones are for Tessa. I really think I'm going to switch up the turquoise coral ones. They're not sitting right with me (although Jenn likes them). Hope you're all having a great day!

Jakob's first day of 3rd grade

Jakob is enjoying third grade except for the increased work load! Holy schmoly with the spelling words. He needs to learn 30 a week being in the upper level reading so he's challenged! Well let me tell you, I'm the one who's being challenged trying to get him to study them all the time! Have a great day.

Super Dudes Revised

After posting this lo the other day I just couldn't stop thinking that something was missing. I picked it back up, punched out a couple of kapows and then used my little star punch to give it a confetti look. It's better, but I think I'll add some words to the kapows...maybe! Have a gret day!
