New on Etsy!!

See, what I've been up to. I've got Christmas on the brain in October, so I figured I'd make a few Christmas items to add to my shop. I really love how these turned out and I can't wait to use a set myself. :) They are handpainted chipboard buttons with diamond glitter. I already have a few ideas floating in my head that I'm going to use these on. If you're interested, stop by my Etsy shop to pick up your own set. You can find me HERE.

Christmas Shimmer

Pink & Green Shimmer

I also made a cute baby girl card for a friend that's expecting. I used a heart card template that I ordered from Oriental Trading. I love shaped cards so this was a great buy for me.

Sweet Baby Girl

Well, it's the hubby's birthday, so I'm off to eat seafood and hang out with him. :)

P.S. All of my Halloween stuff on Etsy is on sale!! 50% off!

Sorry, I'm a Bad Blogger!!

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days. I've been sick with a sinus infection and just lazy about blogging. Well, I'm back and better! :)

With Halloween coming up, my daughter has been bugging me about decorating the house. I got a few decorations from my Mom and I plan on making a banner this week to hang across the fireplace. I also got this little birdhouse from a co-worker who didn't want it. It started out green & white with purple flowers. A little paint and a few embellishments and you've got a cute little Spooky House. My daughter loves it and wants to put it in her room. She really likes the candy corn fence. LOL!!

Haunted House

We got her costume in the mail the other day. She was soooooooo excited!! She was running around the house and I and to practically pull it off to get her in the tub. I can't wait until she really gets to put it on. It's gonna be so cute!! Now, I have to figure out what to do with her hair. AAARRRRGGGHHHH!! Not looking forward to that! LOL!

You know, I really haven't done a layout in a long time. I've been more focused on cards lately, but this weekend I felt like doing a page. This one is of my neice and my daughter when they were little bugs. Don't you just love the two teeth and that hair is hilarious?? LOL!! I should have known then that there would be trouble down the road trying to tame that mane! HAHAHAHA!! Well, I'm off to wind down for the night. :)

So, whenever I start looking for a picture, I end up reminiscing!! LOL! My baby sister loses her mind when it comes to Halloween costumes. Since the day my little one was born, she's always looked forward to dressing her up for Halloween. Now, mind you I've had to say NO to some pretty weird picks like a cheeseburger, Hershey Kiss, and french fries...HAHAHAHA!! I always tell her that she's trying to make a NUT out of my child! LOL! Anyway, after calming her down a bit she's always ended up picking the BEST costumes ever. Now that my daughter is older, she really looks forward to getting her Halloween package in the mail. So, I thought I'd share her costumes for the last 4 years!!

2004: It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!! LOL!!
2005: Snug as a Bug in a Rug :)
2006: Sweet Little Fairy
2007: The Cutest Super Hero

Don't forget to check back after this Halloween to see the new costume!! :o)

Playing Dress Up

So, she got me!! LOL!! I made a quick run in the store to get the 3rd book in Stephanie Meyer's series. I was determined that I would be in an out within 10 minutes. Well, the little one made a comment, "Mom, you never buy me anything, you're always buying those books for you." Well, as parents we all know that "you NEVER buy me anything" could NEVER be a true statement, but I got suckered in!! LOL!! So, I let her walk around and pick out something. Before settling on her final pick, she picked up a book, doll, dress up shoes, and a doll car. Well, when she saw a make up and nail kit full of glitter eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, nails, rings, and bracelets, she was SOLD!!! I promise her eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store!! She was so excited and while walking to the register she said, "Thanks Mom for my gift." That made it all worth it. Awwwwww...yes I'm a sucker!! sniff...sniff...sniff

So, I just had to share pictures of these nails!! They look a HOT MESS, but she loved them!! HAHAHAHAHA!! She even asked to wear them to school...NOT! :o) Just in case you can't tell, she has red glitter eyeshadow on one eye and gold glitter eyeshadow on the other!! LOL! I can't wait until my sisters see these!! I'm just preparing myself for the comments. HAHAHAHA!!

Well, here's the DIVA in training.
