New Home--New Worries.

Wow, this week has flown by--we just moved into our house and now I have stacks of boxes to unpack! My scrap room is a mess and it just might take me forever to get it organized. I can't wait to get my hands creating again! It has been fun putting stuff away in our own home--such a wonderful feeling!

So, that's why I haven't been around lately--that and the lack of internet until a couple days ago! But I do have a couple cards to share-- this one is my new favorite! Probably because I **heart** the new Cosmo line of papers! YUM!

And have you seen Hero Art's NEW catalog?? YIKES! I totally need every single one of those stamps!! Go check it out!

Have a wonderful day-- do something creative for me, will ya??

Tumbleweeds and Violent Mickey

As we were driving down the road today we got attacked by a GIANT tumbleweed. I seriously thought it was going to do damage to the car. Before I moved to Idaho I thought tumbleweeds were made up. Haha. Now we get them all the time going down the road.

I was shocked out of my mind when Logan stood up on the couch, thrust his sword into the air and said, "Stop it or I'll cut your head off!" I ran into the room and demanded he tell me where he had heard such a thing. Then he pointed to his Mickey Mouse movie. Are you kidding me Mickey?? Really?? We got the Spirit Of Mickey movie and there is an OLD cartoon where Pete is chasing Pluto with a gun and says that. Yep, Mickey is banned from our house. Who would have thought??

Here's some fun cards I played with this past week:

Got me some new Cosmo Cricket, great colors! Thinking about using them in my new scrap room!!

This week is going to be busy. we're taking car loads over each day to the new house. Luckily we'll be done by next sunday!! Makes me a happy girl!

Have a wonderful night!

Wendy's Frosty's and French Fries.

Just polished them off for the night.

A fun little treat that I love! It's been a hard day. Needed a little pick-me-up! Nothin' does it better than chocolate! :)

Although it wasn't the best day, I did find this nugget of sunshine:

Logan: "Mommy, I need my cereal with YEA milk."

Me: "What does that mean?"

Logan: "you know, yea, with milk."

Me: "oh, you mean you want milk on your cereal??"

Logan: "YES!"

Love it when they get their words all mixed up! haha. Makes me chuckle.

I've been having fun making a couple projects--and getting nothing done I'm supposed to--bad girl. :)
As my Loggy says: "Good night--don't let the buggies bite!"

crazy. crazy.

We're closing on our house this friday and I've been in a whirlwind of cleaning, packing, throwing stuff out, getting some scrappy projects done, and trying to make a meal now and then! :) Luckily we had a warm day today--actually went to the park and let the kiddos run wild. Made Landen spit out rocks repeatedly--yum.

And some fun stuff...

I was asked to be April's Guest Designer for Keep in Touch-- Kelly is such a sweetheart and puts together the most FABULOUS kits. You really have to get one--they are filled with yummy papers, ribbons, and lots of vintage touches. I had a blast working with this kit. In fact I got it in the mail and sat down right away to create!! Here's my creations with her kit:

I promise that I will be a better blogger for the rest of the week! ;) I've got some fabulous cards!!

So honored...

I received an email a couple weeks ago from Melanie over at 2Peas asking me if I'd be interested in being April's Guest Garden Girl. I was so shocked and overjoyed. This is such an honor. I look up to sooooo many of their talented designers, I'm excited to be in their presence for a couple weeks!

I was asked to make 3 projects for the garden using stamping, as that's their theme for the month. I mostly used Hero Arts stamps--'cuz you know I love them!! Lots of fun funky colors too! (you know me :) Check out all the details to my projects HERE.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave me a comment--really enjoy them all!!
