Taking a mini break.

Hey there!  Just wanted to pop in and let you guys know that I'll be on vacation next week.  We're not going anywhere, just sticking around the house.  We've never done that before, both been off for a whole week, and not gone anywhere, and I'm SO excited!

Landry is having her sleepover on Saturday and then we have her family party on the fourth and our barbecue too, so it will be a busy week!  I probably won't be able to fit posting in and wanted to let all of you know :)

I wanted to share with you the very first card I ever blogged about on here.

I still love this card :)  The colors, the stamping, everything :)

Hope you have a wonderful Friday, great weekend and fabulous week next week!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon!!!!

Hello there!  I'm linking up with JULIA over at the Stamping Ground today to share what I have on my desk.

These are some new goodies I picked up Monday to make a few mini books for Landry's friends that are coming over Saturday night for her birthday sleepover.  I'm planning on taking pictures through the night and printing them out to go in the book and give to the girls as a momento from the party :)

What is on your desk today?  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow!  Have a great Wednesday!!

Birthday Invitations

Good morning!  I'm finally finished with Landry's birthday invitations!!!  Whew, I feel like I was down to the wire on this one :)

I found a design similar to this online, the card shape with the pull out part, and fell in love with it.  It didn't have dimensions or anything so I had to guess.

Here's a peek at the insert.  I kept these pretty simple since I was making so many!  These are doubling as birthday invites for Landry and a barbecue to follow.  Are you planning a patriotic party this year?

We had a fabulous day/evening yesterday.  I was super productive at work and home, had a WONDERFUL visit with friends last night and just enjoyed the beautiful weather. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Tuesday and I'll see you tomorrow!

Filofax tote.

Good morning and happy Friday! Today I'm sharing my filofax tote. I've collected so many supplies that they were taking over my desk and I needed one central place to keep them. 

I put all of my washi in here too.  I'm not sure if I will keep my washi in here or not, because I use my washi for other projects too.

Do you have plans this weekends? We're headed to a friends house tomorrow afternoon and Abie and I have a little thing we're doing Sunday together. Plus we've got lots of to dos on our list  :)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  See you soon!

New card

Happy weekend eve!!  I just love Thursday's.  I think it stems from when Mike use to be out of town every Wednesday and we would be so excited on Thursday because it meant seeing him and an early start to our weekend.  Funny how, years later, I'm still excited for Thursdays.

Today I'm sharing the Father's Day card I made for my dad.  It's a bit non-traditional, in that it doesn't say "happy Father's Day"

But it does say Life is Good and that's because it is.  Good for my dad and good because of my dad, and my mom :)  I used one of my favorite Simple Stories lines for this, just paper and some foam tape.  Love it!

Lots of swimming going on here, and volleyball, and just enjoying summer.  That means not a lot of crafting.  But I do have a lot of ideas!  Haha!  I hope you're enjoying your summer and spending your time the way you want to!  Thanks for stopping by today to share a minute with me.  I appreciate it :)  See you tomorrow with an organizational re-do of my Filofax tote!  Have a great Thursday!

It's been a few weeks since I've linked up with JULIA over at the Stamping Ground to share What is on my Workspace.  But I'm back at it today with a little peek.

This is how my desk looks right now, after working on my Father's Day card.  Not too bad, but still feeling a bit cluttered to me.  I need to pack up all of my Filofax stuff and find a more permanent place to store it.  I'm thinking some type of caddy.  Do you see all the dust on the back of my table?  Good grief, it needs a good cleaning!

I'm getting ready to make birthday invitations for my youngest so I need to get this picked up pronto!

Thanks for stopping in today and I'll be back tomorrow with a new card!  Have a fantastic Wednesday!!

One more Project Life...

Morning! Happy Tuesday to you! We had a busy night last night, but let me tell you, the girls are getting so big, and responsible, they are able to help out so much around the house to help us get out the door. I love that! Especially when we have to be somewhere fast!

Today I'm sharing one more week of Project Life. My two most recent weeks have all the journaling cards completed, I just need to print out pictures. Hoping to do that tonight!

I find myself crafting in batches :)  Do you do that, or do you have the luxury of crafting in large blocks of time, like entire days, or even three or four hours at a time?

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and I'll see you tomorrow! Thanks for stopping in today!

Project Life

Hey there! Sorry to go missing on you a few days last week. I actually had things planned to post, but between my busier than expected summer schedule and broken laptop, it just didn't happen.  I'm hoping to post every day, or almost every day, this week  :)

Today I'm sharing a couple of recent weeks of Project Life.  I'm still enjoying it, I love the record keeping aspect of it.

Thanks for stopping in today and I'll see back here tomorrow!

A new card.

Good morning!   Today I'm sharing a card I made with a few fun pieces in my stash.

Some washi tape, a journaling card, a tiny tag and a bit of twine.  I picked up this cardstock, that I used for the base of the card, at Joann's and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  I usually use Papertrey Ink cardstock for all of my bases because of the nice thick weight, but this will definitely do in a pinch!

Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you tomorrow! Have a great Wednesday!

Back from my trip!!

Good morning!!  I made it back from New Orleans on Sunday and had a great time with my Mom and sister.  I had never been down there before and cannot wait to go again.  In fact, I think Mike and I might be planning an anniversary trip down there!!

Here are just a few pics of my trip.

Decorated Filofax pages

Good morning! How are you?  Things are fantastic here, it's my last day of work before a short mini vacation and I couldn't be more excited!!

Today I'm posting my decorated Filofax pages from this week.  It's really been a lot of fun doing this and I have to say, after being a digital convert, I'm so glad I switched back to paper!!

I'm posting my weekly pages, decorated with washi, before I added my stickers for the week. I forgot and took the picture too early :)

The next picture is of my monthly sheets. I added some color with a highlighter and stickers.

The last photo is of a card from my stash that I punched and added to this week in honor of my girls trip :)

Thanks for popping in today for a second! I'm taking the next couple of days off.  Heading to New Orleans with my mom and sister!!!  I'll be back next week though!  :)

Testing 123

So I'm trying something out here.  Posting from my phone.  Eek! You know I cracked my laptop screen, right. Well I could post from my desktop, but I'm pretty lazy and this seems super easy so I'm going to give it a whirl!

Today I'm sharing a fun hexagon card.  My first time using them actually!   I used a 6x6 Simple Stories pad and some other fun embellishments. No sentiment in the outside, I saved that four the inside!

I'm not exactly sure how these photos are going to post in here, so we'll see how this goes!   Thanks four stopping by today and I'll see you guys tomorrow. Have an awesome Tuesday!

New goodies!

Hello!!!  Did you have a nice weekend?  I hope so :)  Mike and I saw The Lumineer's Saturday night, so much fun, and Sunday, after picking up the girls, Abie and I went to a little party at a friends house and then we hung out around the house all afternoon.

Today I don't have a new project for you, but I do have some fun new goodies to share.

These are some new goodies I picked up, mostly for my Filofax, but I can use them in other crafting projects too, right?  Ha!

I also grabbed these Smash book bands, I thought I might need them.  And Walmart has all of their Smash stuff on clearance.  Did you know this???

And finally, my friend Steph sent me this awesome bunch of goodies in the mail for my Filofax!  We're both completely addicted!  Haha!  (I'm using one of the owls she sent and had already gotten into the stickers after I had taken the picture.)

This week I have a new card to share and my decorated Filofax pages.  I'm taking Thursday and Friday off because I'll be out of town :)  Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Monday and I'll see you tomorrow!
