I'm not sure about the sentiment, a little worried it's too girly, but I know he won't even notice :)
I cannot believe he's 15.
Thanks for sopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend! Abie's last volleyball tournament is this weekend, but other than that, we have the regular stuff on the schedule. What about you?

Landry had a birthday party over the weekend and I put off the gift card holder until the very last minute, like walking out the door last minute!
I will say, for waiting until the last minute, I LOVE how this turned out!!!! (excuse the spray paint on my thumb, I was giving our wicker furniture a fresh coat before I ran in and made this Saturday!)
I literally trimmed the paper for the holder and then grabbed a couple of tags from my leftover bowl, did some quick stamping and I was finished!
I hope you're having a great week so far. Thanks for stopping by.

Today I wanted to share with you some fun glittered clothespins that the girls made last weekend. I saw these on Twitter, I think.
The girls set up shop at their craft table with Mod Podge, clothespins and glitter.
The first step was to spread the Mod Podge on, a good thick coat.
Then sprinkle on a nice layer of glitter.
And knock off the excess glitter.
Your finished product! A lovely glittery clothespin :)
What was awesome about this was that even Landry got in on the action :)
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a fab week!

Happy happy Friday! Today I wanted to share my younger nephews birthday card.
It was super simple and fun to make. I used a little plastic jewelry bag, from a craft store, to hold three different types of confetti. Then I covered up the top of the bag with some patterned paper and little tag I stamped :)
I kept the inside simple, with just a stamp.
Sorry about the lighting, it was really sunny when I took the photo, but no complaints from me on that!
Any big plans this weekend? Mike is working on our fence, changing it from a 4ft to 6ft and I have the normal house stuff to take care of :)
Hope you have a good one! Thanks for the visit!

It's Wednesday already! Woot woot!
A couple of weeks ago I saw a picture on instagram with a link to My Sweet Stamp Shop and they carry the cutest stamps for your planner!
I picked out three sets that I thought I would use the most, they were $7.95 each. The shipping was super fast and they are the heavy acrylic stamps :)
I've been using them for a few weeks now and love the orderliness they add to my weeks ;) I've been using chalk inks to stamp with, they seem to bleed LESS through the paper. If I clean the stamps immediately, they don't stain. I've had problems with chalk inks staining my acrylic stamps in the past.
So here's a peek at the three sets I ordered and one of my weeks :)
Do you stamp in your planner?

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We had some fantastic weather here and were able to spend a lot of time outside, it was great!
My dad's birthday was on Friday and I whipped up this card for him. I just love that Starburst, but I still haven't mastered the spacing when I'm stamping with it. Need to work on that.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Now that is officially March I figured it was okay to post my new banner I made!
I picked up two different packages of shamrocks at the dollar store, some foam glittered ones and then a package of different sized cardstock ones.
I punched holes in each of the corners and ran twine through, then strung this puppy up! And it was only $2!
Have you made anything fun for St Patrick's Day?
