A bill of health...

does anyone have a good one anymore??

We sure don't. My goodness, it seems like I'm always complaining about one sickness or another. Last week I got strep. THE WORST. man, I was in bed for days! Couldn't even talk. But now that I'm feeling better and I'm off my pain killers (which made me a little loopy) I'm a walking, talking human being again! I have sooo much to catch up on though, it wears me out just thinking about it! ;)

So here's a pic of my living room/dining room that I painted blue and I added those IKEA floating shelves. All the flowers are from my garden earlier this month.

It's Fall Stamp Camp this month over at 2Peas and I got to host week 3! We're stamping on chipboard--I already love love love the kraft color of the chipboard, so I just stamped over it! You know me and Kraft... LOL Go check everything out HERE and come play along--you may win a prize!! :)
Off to catch up on some more stuff!! Have a wonderful day!

Sweet and Sassy

Funny how little boys go from being so sweet to being sassy.

I saw Logan sit next to Landen on the couch to watch some cartoons, then he planted a big kiss on Landen's cheek. Landen turned and gave him a big ole' grin. So cute... so sweet. One minute later, Landen was "crowding" him on the couch and WACK! he hits him across the head. Sheesh.... where do these mood swings come from at 4??? And he's not even a girl!!

Found me some vintage doiles this summer at a garage sale and had to try them out--love the look paired with the K&Co. keys. (Hero Arts ink, stamps, flowers- K&Co. key, journaling tag, flowers--Melissa frances paper and pearls--Amy Butler paper)

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great night!

I always, ALWAYS miss National Cardmaking Day. It lands on a saturday every year and we're constantly busy! THen of course, I start looking at everyone's blogs and seeing their darling cards and then I get all mad that I missed out! so...

Happy Belated Cardmaking Day!! YAYYYY!!!

My little guy took an extra long nap today so I got a chance to make some stuff-- that always makes me smile. Seems like I haven't had a chance to create in a LONG time--even though it's only been a few days! LOL

I have a couple Core'dinations projects for the month to share-- if you haven't tried their new Jenni Bowlin papers, you really need too--such cool stuff!!

Hugs and kisses,

Olive Branch and Bridgewater

Two of the colors I painted in my new basement today. YAY! Just a couple more days until our carpet is installed and we can offically "move in" LOL

My scraproom is a pale shade of yellow and the boys playroom with olive colored. We're doing two shades of gray in the family room. It's amazing how fast paint can change a room! Decorating is never done though--after all the painting and moving in, I still need to buy a lights for the rooms, make curtains, hang pictures, build shelves... will it ever be done?? I'm just afraid that I'll finally get it done and it will go out of style. I tried not to go with a "trendy" look--but you never know if you'll hate it all in a couple years.

So, to play catch up... here's some of my work from this past week:

Here's a fun baby layout with my little niece Jalie for the Hero Arts blog. It amazes me how their stamps can go from cards to layouts so beautifully!!

My FIRST TwoPeas project--our theme for the month of October is Typography. That was a tough one for me, I chose to go with a dictionary page.

ANd just a fun halloween card
Last week we were sponsored by Inky Antics over at CPS. Look at that darling frog!! I'll be using this one for my neighbors cards!

Have a wonderful night!
