A quick update...

We are all excited for the holiday coming up and being together as a family!
The kids are counting the days...

I have so much love, peace and joy in my heart right now. I have been blessed with so much in my life and couldn't be happier! I thank God for every moment!

For all of you, I want you to know how much I love and appreciate all of you :)

With all my love!

Well it has been a while hasn't it. I finally get the blog thing figured and then I never update it ;)
Well it has been crazy lately, these are pictures of the 80 punch animals that me and the kids made for treats for the last day of school. We put contact info on the backs of them for the kids in their classes since they are changing tracks this year. They are now on Track 4. Then I made 16 of these baskets for my 3D swap at convention with the GOT INK GIRLZ!!! I will get a post on here of the other things I did as well. These baskets were also for old teachers and the new teachers coming up that the kids have. It has been alot of fun being back in the creating mode again. It's been a while. I just got back from Stampin' Up! Convention a couple of weeks ago! Had so much fun and love what I do!!! Then we just got back from camping. We went up to Mt Charleston. And had alot of R&R so I definately need to get more pics on.

I Love Simply Scrappin Kits

I love using Simply Scrappin kits! They make scrapbooking so easy. Now I just need to go take some pics of my girls and get them on. I love these colors too! It's kind of hard to tell but SISTERS is cut out with chipboard and cardstock from the Big Shot. Then I covered the letters in Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Another Favorite!

Today is Sahara's 3rd Birthday. Yet another attempt at a fondant cake. I was going for a 2 tier, I think it looks more like a bonnet. lol Anyway she loves it! Then a pic with her bday gift. And then her on the phone with grandma and grandpa wishing her a Happy Birthday! She is so happy and we love her so much. All she wanted was fire on her cake this year.

The first 5 people to leave a comment on this blog will receive something made by me. However there are some limitations:
1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year.
4. You have not a clue what it is going to be; poetry, shoes, bags or a little invention of my own. I may even bake something and mail it you! Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. It may blow your mind!
Here's the catch... if you choose to do this, you must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! And, when you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog. Or if you don't have a blog, send me a photo and I will post it! Ready....Set....Comment!

I don't know if any of you remember a few years ago I made a 3 tier paper cake where it was individual slices embellished with flowers. Each slice opened up to reveal chocolates inside. It was really pretty but a lot of work and time involved. And did I take a picture...of course not. Well I just created another cake for Sahara's birthday and it took no time at all. I love all the ideas I get from Stampin' Up! Tayler and Sahara each had to have their own butterfly as well. We had a lot of fun.

Mike enjoying his day at work!!!

Well Mike decided to have a little fun...Climbing a cell tower 100ft...Not my idea of fun! He actually said he was double dared to do it. I told him he gets to explain to his kids now that you don't do everything someone tells you to do.

Tayler just lost her first tooth!

I love bags!

Last year at Convention we were shown a vinyl bag. Here are my creations so far... I loved playing with the dimensions and making the small one. It is for Nat. You can change out the ribbon and paper whenever you like.

Now it's time for my first project posted.... I used Qbee's design on Split Coast for an Easter egg box but I changed the dimensions and created a box for the BIG Cadbury Eggs. So Cute and Fun. I am giving these as Easter Teacher gifts for my kids in school.

My bunny girls! Aren't they adorable. Don't you love the $1 shopping bins at Target.
