Put a little love in your heart...

Have you been getting ready for valentine's day yet? Logan just picked out his sweet G-Force valentines! I'm getting excited! We get the kids a little basket full of goodies and I decorate the house up! So fun! This year I think we might buy them Guardians of Gahoole. We watched it the other night and the boys loved it! I even have some fun heart shaped baskets that we fill up with candy! So in honor of valentine's day... here's a little card I made to get me in the mood. I'm listing it on Etsy if you're interested!

 And here's a page I made for Two Peas about our Christmas picture:

Hope you have a great day!

January Core projects

I've been thinking lately that at the age of 2 kids are the most annoying and funny people on the planet. Landen's been driving us CRAZY! He's potty trained now--which I'm sooo thankful for--BUT every time he goes to the bathroom we have to fight with him to get his undies and pants back on. WHY? Just because he thinks it's hilarious to see us get frustrated! Like I said before though--they are the funniest people. Landen is learning to break dance, which consists of throwing himself on the floor face first over and over again. And he sings while he's doing it--usually to the tune of I'm a Child of God. He gave Logan's zhu zhu pet a bath in his cereal bowl--poor things hair is all glued together. and he begs me to watch Justin' Beiber's Baby music video all the time. Funny kid.

Well, I've got a couple projects to share--my Core'dinations projects for January. If you haven't tried their cardstock--you must! They are soooo fun to distress!

Now I got to get ready for my nasty glucose test-- I almost throw up every time I have to do it! yuck! Wish me luck! ;)

Bring on the sunshine!

It's funny how the day after Christmas I'm dying for spring to get here--and fast! The snow is already driving me crazy. There is sunlight shining through our windows and it feels like spring time but the second you walk outside it's below zero. Ugh! So to make time go faster I'm buying flower seeds for my garden on ebay! haha Planning out my garden already!

I got to do a little scrapbooking the other night and here's a couple of the cards I came up with:

And I have a new goal for 2010-- well, two goals that is---the first one is to record my life better. I'm going to follow in Erin Cobb's (Pigbear) footsteps and try the One Frame a Day in 2011. The other goal is to try out more tutorials. There  are so many fun things out there to make! Especially for my new little one that's coming way too fast! Here's some of the one's I want to try out:

Look at these darling diaper covers by MADE:

I'm totally making one of these beauties for my little man from Honey Bear Lane:

And this cute brimmed beanie by Delia Creates:

And one more... these burp cloths by Craftaholics Anonymous:

I'm excited to start on these projects!

Christmas Catch up!

Oh, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas like we did! We got a lot of pictures--that I'm still editing--not sure if it will ever end!  I did get a chance to make a couple cards for the Echo Park Paper blog. Such a fabulous company and I LOVE their paper! Grab me some every time I get the chance! Here's my two cards:

Isn't that little Reindeer to die for?!! I just love it!
