Feelin' the joy!

Seems like all the Christmas stuff I've been making says Joy on it! I must be feelin' it! Just a quick post for tonight--my eyelids are drooping, time to head off to bed!

This is a little, vintage-inspired banner. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Martha Stewart glitter, although I don't use it enough! This bronze color really gives it that extra touch!

A little card--I'm totally lovin' my felt right now--made those felt holly leaves! I think they are so cute and they only took a minute to make!

These are both in my Etsy shop right now--I'm having so much fun making Holiday stuff, but I'm not going to be able to use it all! Hopefully they will find a loving home! :)

Have a wonderful night! Dream crafty!

I think I can

We had a wonderful weekend--I got to spoil my hubby and spend some time with my boys! We stopped by a little... and by little, I mean HUGE... furniture store called Hidden Treasures in Shelley--it's filled with used and new stuff. We had a ball looking at all the fun stuff tucked away inside! Then we went out to eat... Red Robin, his favorite! On Sunday (his real birthday) we woke up, made strawberry crepes, opened presents and went to church. We ended the day at his parents house eating Lasagna and finishing it off with an ice cream cake! I can't believe how old he's getting... 29! He even leaned over and whispered in my ear, "What were you thinking, marrying an old man like me??" I'm thinking I made a wonderful decision! Love ya hon!

**Funny: I got Brandon a Nerf gun for one of his presents so he can play with the boys (it's his favorite present by far) and then when Logan went to say his prayers that night, this is what he said,

"And thank you that Daddy could get a Nerf gun for his birthday. I know I can use it if he shares. I love my daddy and I give him kisses. I really want to use is Nerf gun and use it on my own. I think I can, I think I can, I really think I can."

Then I just had to giggle.

Have a wonderful night filled with little one's prayers!

It was WORTH it!!!!!!!!!

woke up at 1:30am to make it to the 3:00am showing of New Moon. TOTALLY WORTH IT!! A group of my girlfriends all went--afraid I'm not young enough to pull stuff like that off anymore, but I really did enjoy it!

If you saw it, you'll agree--it puts Twilight to shame! LOL Run, don't walk, to see NEW MOON!!!!!

(Here's to Team Jacob!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Pop comb

yes, pop comb.

pop comb
pop comb

That's what Landen says as he bounces down the hallway. It's his new word-- popcorn.

He learned it yesterday! In the last week he has learned how to put two words together and copy the words we say. Logan had him saying car and road on the way home from preschool and he thought that was pretty hilarious! It makes me so happy to see him hit that stage where he'll start learning all these new words at once. Sure makes communication with him a little easier! Although I'm a little sad to see him grow up--my baby!!

Yesterday the mid-month garden went up at 2peas-- the theme is stickers! This really was a HUGE challenge for me as I don't use them very often... or at all! But I have tons of them and they're dying to be used on a layout or two!! Here's my projects--go check out the garden, there is SOOOO many beautiful layouts to look at... and drool over! :)

My little niece Maddy--she needed a sparkly butterfly... don't all little girls???? I used Basic Grey stickers on here!

Lil' man--that's my logan! Love these chipboard stickers from Cosmo Cricket!

And here's my thankful layout--truly feel lucky to document the wonderful, beautiful people and things in my life.
Hope you get a chance to write down a thing or two that you're thankful for!! So fun to read a couple years down the road!!

Have a great night!

Frosty mornings...

I love the cool, crisp air that comes with this time of year. After breakfast, I took the garbage out and had to smile at the frost on our grass. I love it! Makes me want to cuddle up in a blanket with some cocoa and stay in my pjs!

Here's my Core'dinations projects for November!

You can see the tutorial for this flower here by the amazing Tia Bennett! Her's look way better than mine! Okay, it doesn't really go with the dentist theme, but who cares????????

Have a great night!

Quiet whisperings...

Logan has hit the age where he can pretend and play on his own. I've found him whispering to himself a couple times these past few days and it cracks me up. I recorded Underdog for him a couple weeks ago and now I catch him whispering, "Never fear, UnderLogan is here!" hehe. And we were in the car heading to preschool the other day and we passed some wheat fields. I heard him whisper,"If I were a police man, I'd be a farmer and then I'd be a scarecrow and I'd say to the crows," no don't eat that, yes eat that, no don't eat that! yea, that's what I'd say" And then he giggled to himself. so funny. I'm that crazy mom who puts her ear up to the door when he's in the bathroom because he talks to himself and it is sooo darn cute!

Look at me--making something for fun!! Just for the heck of it! haha, I had a full out creative session with my paper and goodies yesterday. I'm usually making something for one deadline or another, but these were for fun!
I made that flower out of fabric, I'm making a LARGE one next week and I'll post the tutorial link and everything! THey're so easy to make!

Glitter, glitter, glitter--isn't it perfect! I love how glitter seems to make everything better! :)

And this one is inspired by the talented Mrs. Danielle Flanders! She's amazing! If you haven't seen her blog, you HAVE to check it out!

More glitter.... lol.

I'm off to clean up my scrap room for another fun cardmaking session! :)
have a wonderful day!

Way, WAY, too much candy!

Stop the madness!!!!!!

Is anyone, ANYONE, having the same problem as I am?? I can't stay out of my children's Halloween candy! Everynight I go to bed thinking, "I'm not going to overstuff myself on candy tomorrow. Think about how you feel right now. Don't do that to yourself tomorrow!" And then I wake up, eat a healthy breakfast and reward myself with a HERSHEY's bar!!! I literally don't think I can stop until it's all gone--so I better just go polish it off right now! LOL

Here's my Twopeas projects for the month of November.

This is my son's sweet friend Kinley--isn't she a doll??? I took this pictures of her and just HAD to scrap them!

Have a great night!

Bad Blogger award.

goes to me.

Yep, I admit it, I'm a horrid blogger. I try. I think about it everyday. And then the day gets away from me.

I've been going through some personal stuff... hopefully it will all be behind me soon. :)

On a much funner note... you HAVE to see these pics of us from Halloween! Hilarious.

( I was going to title this post 'oh, yes, it's 80's night') sweet huh?

Yep, that's me--even made those leg warmers myself. I might have to come up with an excuse to wear them again!!

And do I even need to say how AWESOME Brandon's outfit is????? He found that Member's Only jacket at DI. It cost $6-- I told him he could buy it only if he promised to have it replace his other jacket. LOL He hasn't followed through yet! And that mullet wig-- is there even anything to say??? NO one recognized him at the party.

Here's Logan as a SCARY vampire. I made the costume myself. He had fun wearing it around the house for days. His favorite thing about being a vampire is saying, "I Vant to suck your blood" to everyone. They all get a kick out of it. I even sprayed his hair black-- turned out so fun, but when it came time to wash it out, I couldn't BELIEVE how long it took to get back to normal. Our bathtub is black.

And this is the only picture I could get of Landen boy. He would NOT turn around for me to take a picture!! Cut dino.

Couldn't resist putting the mullet wig on Landen. Bwahahahahahaha.... isn't it soooo Joe Dirt??

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!
