I wanted to make a fun card--I was feeling very girly--so I created something soft and pretty... a card!

 This was a pretty simple card to make- and I used some of my new favorite products... Click on the picture for more information on the product!

And for a giveaway.... how about a $10 gift card to 2peas!!  Leave me a comment and I'll randomly pick a person for the gift card on the 8th!

It's the spookiest time of the year!

I just love the week before Halloween! We're doing all sorts of creepy things around our house! We've made caramel apples, read all of our Halloween books, went to a Halloween party, and bought our favorite Halloween cereal!  I'm going to be sad when it's all over.. but at least we have Christmas to look forward to!

I have some creepy cards for you today. I made this card set for the 2peas garden. I mostly used the Echo Park Apothecary Emporium paper collection. Find more information on them here.

Have a fantastic day!

If you have boys than you know how they are--everything becomes a weapon of sorts. I saw Logan even chew down his toast until it was gun shaped. haha And Landen's new obsession is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A fun throw back to when I was little. I remember my brothers jumping off the couch with their foam Knumchucks and screaming "Cowabunga!" It makes me happy that Landen is having the same experience! I'm hoping to get him some really cool TMNT stuff online for Christmas!

I have a couple fun cards for you today--

And if you haven't noticed... I've filled up my ETSY shop with a TON of handmade cards. I'm swamped with them here and need to get rid of some. So I'm selling them for almost nothing! They are $1-$2 a card--go check it out!

Have a fantastic Day!

viA video for you...

I was in charge of the Finally Friday video last week--I have a fun little trick up my sleeve involving paper flowers and some copic markers! :) You can go over to the 2peas garden and check it out! While you are there, snoop around at all the other Garden Girl's projects--stunning! I seriously can't believe I get to work with such talented women!


Thanks for stopping by!

Did you think I forgot about my poor blog? Well, a little--I've been working on something BIG! Don't worry, I'll let you know what it is in about a month...

But since I posted last I've been having some fun with my kiddos! And since it's my FAVORITE time of year--we've been doing lots of Halloween fun stuff. One of our yearly traditions is going to the pumpkin patch--here's some cute pics of my sweet boys at the patch:

 Hope you are having a wonderful October! ;)
