Its Friday! My week has been so busy, that I haven't been able to play at all! I have all these intentions to do so.. I have tons of things I want to make and play with, but I just can't get the time this week. I am hoping to get away for a few hours tonight to celebrate my girlfriends birthday Meredith! We'll celebrate and crop and boy do I need that! Tomorrow I leave for a family gathering in Oregon. We have never been in the car for so long with Tony, and I fear that it is going to be one LOOOOOONNNGG ride tomorrow. I am shopping today for a portable DVD player, it might be our saving grace..

The box for the June kit is overflowing with beautiful things.. I have been separating and figuring what is going in and wow oh wow.. last month I just dipped my toes in kit making, this month.. OMG! This kit is going to blow your mind! The beautiful papers, lace, old ribbon, custom embellishments.. I have been perusing my black and white photos and picking what I am going to use.

For now, I share my mothers day presents that I made for my sister and some of my friends.. its a 8x8 board which I have turned into a wall hanging.. I had a ton of fun making these!

I played last night, yippee! Makes me so happy. I really should try to do it just a little bit each day.. I do try, but life gets in the way. I joined a new ATC group and they are inspiring me with all their creativity. Its such a different world than what I am used to, but I am so excited to jump in. So, here are my 3 cards from last night.. the best part about them? I get to use these FANTASTIC photos of my mom when she was a little girl. These are those great photo booth pics that you snap 4 of them.. isn't she darling? I am going to pull out all the old photos and make ATC of all my family. Can't wait to keep playing..

I wanted to share a few things today. One, this layout I did for the Scrap For A Cure Kit club.. its all about the fabric and the grunge.. my two favorite things right now. I love elements with texture and depth. Anything that "pops" off the page. The kits for June and July are going to have these elements.. June is my Vintage collection.. look for angels, antique lace, buttons, and bulk in this gatefold album. July is going to be a fantastic kit! Its all about Tim Holtz, grungeboard and getting your hands dirty. I have a lot of his new products in my hot little hands and can't to start to create with them.. I have these huge see thru bins for each month and I keep adding so much fun stuff to them each day.. I'll have to take a picture for you as a sneak peak.. they look really fun!

This layout is about SELF. Its taken me a long time to reflect on myself and do layouts and themes based on me.. but I am finally here.. accepting and looking into myself and finding what I truly love!

Enjoy your day!

Happy Mothers Day! I hope everyone had a fantastic day yesterday! We had a beautiful brunch yesterday at my parents in law house, and just lounged around. Then mom and I went to a few stores and I got some fun things for my upcoming kits.. totally inspired!

I have had these ideas to make cute felt items and I sat down last night and made one! Its my little TREE! He is soo cute and so much fun to make, plus I can sit at the couch and watch TV while I make them. I am going to make more tonight! Have a great day!

I wanted to share some pictures of my items in the store. Its very cool to see them out on the floor and see people pick them up and say "how cute".. so I am getting a kick out of it. Also, the picture of the owl "vignette" is something I am also selling, custom made.. you pick the color of the vignette and I'll make it for you! Casey was my first customer.. yippee! THANKS GIRL!

Hopefully in the coming weeks, I'll be able to get everything up and in a store format.. stay tuned!

Its my favorite time of day here, its just starting to get light outside, everyone in the house is asleep and its super quiet. I am looking outside and see deer roaming in the open space and the world is good. I hope everyone had a fantastic NSD whereever they celebrated. I was at MDW for 15 hours I think. I think I finally caught up on all my sleep last night. I went to the Alameda Antique Fair on Sunday and came home with a bunch of fun things.. I'm going to take a pic today and post. Lots of things for one of my next kits.. hint.. "vintage" style.. oooh think old and beautiful. I needed to take a break from creating for a few days since I was so busy for two weeks getting all my kits and products ready. My display at the store looks super cute. If you haven't seen it I will post a pic of it today as well. The camera is downstairs and I just want to sit and watch the world start to get light again.

I am also working with my 6 dt buddies on starting a challenge blog called WISHCHICKS. Look for the launch of that hopefully in a week as well! We'll do giveaways and give lots of inspiration!
