Sad News...

I still can't believe it's true!! The store that I design for, A Scrappin Friendsy will be closing effective October 1st. This is such a wonderful place, and I'm really going to miss the friendships that I have made there. :o) When I first went into the store, it felt like home. The owner, Jo, has a beautiful personality. She welcomed me and made me feel like I belonged and she's always been wonderful to my little one. Sometimes, I just went by the store to chat with her and didn't buy a thing, but she was still always waiting with open arms and ready to listen. See why I'm gonna miss this place............

Well, there was a weekend crop at the store and I did manage to go two nights and have a great time. Here is a page that I finished for one of the challenges on the site.

I tell you, I'm not sure how good this crafting really is for the mind!! LOL!! I woke up Saturday and decided I would try polymer clay buttons. I felt like a kid with Play-Dough!! Talk about fun!! I love the bright colors and of course, I'm addicted to dots!! HAHAHA! So, since I'm in a great mood and I really love how these turned out, I figured I would give some away.

All you have to do is leave a comment and I'll pick a random winner Wednesday night. Thanks for playing along!! Oh yeah, and these can also be found in my Etsy shop. Stay tuned for more colors and designs. :o)

School Pics...

And to think I was nervous about these!! She did a great job, but I was kind of concerned after our conversation the morning that the pictures came back. When I told her that her school pictures were back she got kind of quiet. Then she said, "Momma, do you like shy pictures?" I said, "Why?" She said, "Because I was shy on some of my pictures." I said, "Well, I'm sure they are pretty even if you were shy."

Well, I guess this is what shy looks like!! LOL!! You can call me biased, but I think shy is adorable!! I am the Momma though!

Calling All Design Teams...

If you're interested in ordering buttons for your Scrapbook kits or clubs, please stop by my Etsy shop for a custom order. I recently did the one's below for a club in Michigan. I really thought that the turquoise and black combo was cute!! Thanks Bringing Your Own Memories!! :) Stop by and check out their site.

Now, that I have the business out of the's on to the FUN stuff!! LOL!! Here are my latest creations that have been added to my Etsy shop. I really had a lot of fun with these. They are little notebooks that I altered for no other reason than because they are cute and fun. :) I always carry some kind of notebook in my purse for those times when an idea hits and I'm scared that I'll forget it by the time I get home. It really comes in handy for me, so I thought....might as well make them cute too.

Now, last Tuesday was picture day at my daughter's school. She was sooooo excited because I told her that I would try to curl her ponytails. Now, I don't know if you remember my hair picture from a previous post, but my daughter's is just as bad when it comes to POOF!! LOL! So after washing, blow drying, flat ironing, curling, and rolling I managed to get as close to Shirley Temple curls as I could. The picture below was after I picked her up from school, so it looked much better that morning. I was actually expecting it to look a lot worse after a day of playing, but I was pleasantly surprised. So, here is the mini DIVA in all her glory posing for a picture of hair. Is she camera ready or what???

I just hope that this year's pictures aren't a repeat of the previous two years. The first year she was crying on them and the 2nd year she had a TERRIFIED smile!! HAHAHAHA!! She told me when I picked her up and asked how she did that..."I smiled on some of them, but not all." When I asked why, she said, "Because, I didn't know that lady!!" hehehehe!

Well, I'm off to read a book before hitting the hay!! Check back soon for a give-away!

New DT work

Here's my latest DT assignment over at ASF. The assignment was to use trees. I really had fun with this one and I got to use some of my favorite Scenic Route and Amy Butler paper. I also got to play around with some of my buttons from my Etsy shop. I've always liked this picture of my daughter and the title fits perfectly because she is sooooo Sassy, but she's also a sweetheart!! I'm still amazed at how her little mind works.

(Close up)

Well, I just finished 5 Grandparent's day cards and I'm sleepy so I'm off to bed.

Coming Soon...

Guess what I've been working on? Cutesyglam Hairbows!! This is my latest adventure that will be added to my Etsy shop soon. :) This pair kind of reminds me of the one's that Minnie Mouse wears. hehehehe!

I've always wanted to know how to make these, so I decided to give it a shot. They are fun and were pretty easy to make. The best part has been shopping for this cute ribbon. I'm a HUGE fan of pink & polka dots so this ribbon was the perfect combo. So stay tuned for more of these and visit the shop later for more designs.
