Well it's been a crazy busy week around here and I haven't had a moment to sit down and make anything. )=
We have been doing Vacation Bible School, Basketball camp, swim lessons for both girls (at diff. times) etc. Throw in a new puppy and a husband who has been out of town all week and you have one tired Mom! What happened to the lazy day's of summer?? I do have a few pics from the week!
Snow cones are a summer favorite!!! (=
We got a small fire pit for the backyard. We made some smores last night!! YUMMY!
I saw this necklace tutorial a few days ago. It was super cute and easy! I had what I needed on hand. Beading wire and beads. Just string on the beads and twist the wire around... I know I wrote the source down, but cannot find it at the moment! If you know it please let me know and I'll post it! (= Here is the necklace I made.
Thursday is the last day of school for the kids. Here is a gift I put together for my daughters teacher. I started with a beach bag. I added a beach towel, Magazine, Dasani Water, Sunscrean and Aloe Vera. I tied a small shovel on the outside filled it with swedish fish and typed: Hope you DIG your summer!
And another small gift is this little container filled with Smarties candies. The tag reads: Thanks for making me so smartie. (I've done these in the past). Cute, fun, easy and affordable! (=
Here is a card made with my Paper Smooches stamps that I will include!
So much going on these days!! The kids are just about done with school. I'm really hoping for a relaxing summer and spending a little more time crafting. Fingers crossed! (= I also have a few projects I'd like to get done around the house. The kids will still keep busy with basketball camp, Vacation Bible Schools, swimming lessons etc and before we know it August will be here and the girls will be starting Cheer and Soccer!! Summers fly by all too fast!!
Here is a very clean and simple card using my A Muse stamps. I paired the cute little beach bag with the sentiment: sending you sunshine.
And our neighbors daughter graduated on Friday. Here is a simple card with the cap cut from my silhouette machine.
This was a small wood sign I made for her.
and lastly here is a Congratulations banner made for her party.
We are the proud owners of a sweet little puppy!!! (= Yep, she's a little thing!! We've been holding off on getting a dog for awhile now , but I knew it would happen. The kids were so excited. It's kinda like having a new baby in the house! hehe (= We named her Sadie!
Another fun find over the weekened. This spinning card holder that I got for only $12.00!!! (=
And last, but not least a cool picture I took. We were heading out to see the puppy and we passed this small carnival. I grabbed my camera as we were driving past and got this picture!!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you had a great weekened!!!
Playing with some new Papertrey Ink stamps. I don't have too many stamps for boys. So when I saw this cute little set "Game On" I knew I should get it! Perfect for my son who loves video games! The sentiment reads: wishing you an epic YEAR - happy birthday to an amazing kid!
Just wanted to say "Happy Birthday" to my sweet little Laney who is turning 5 today. Here are some more little pinwheels that I made up as party favors.
Here is a clean and simple birthday card. The fun stamp is from Unity.
I was hoping to post some cute pics and my May photo mosaic, but again my computer is having issues and I've been using my sons laptop. Just hoping I haven't lost any pictures. It really is time for a new computer!
