Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Happy Tuesday!

OK as you can see I repapered the baby can. smile. I just didnt like the stripes. :) So what do think now? I've got to add more pink ribbons to the handle so it will stand out. I think it looks much better.

This picture isnt so great! ;) Here's a birthday card I made the other night.
Here is a address book that I picked up fromt he dollar tree the other day. I love the colors!

I've been enjoying my Spring Break!!! I've been able to catch up on some cleaning and laundry. It feels so good to be able to relax! I can't wait until summer so we can go to the beach, hang out in the pool, and spend the day at the park! I miss being a stay at home mom! :)

Birth Verse

What is your birth verse? This is a cute little website that has verses esp. for your birthday. They say mine is the following:

Galatians 2:20 NIV
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

You are a child of God, His treasured possession. He created you in His own image. He chose the day for you to be born. He has a plan and a purpose for your life. Cherish your birthverse.

BIRTHVERSE consists of 366 verses chosen from the 66 books of the Bible. Each verse correlates the chapter and verse with its month and day

Baby Girl PB Mini Album

I love paper albums. They are super easy to make! Esp. with the trusty ole crop-a-dile! It would be nice to have the big bite. :) I will probably sell this one for a couple of bucks. They are going on ebay and etsy for 15-20 a pop! I guess I just think my stuff isn't as nice as "that stuff" but I don't care. I just enjoy doing it!

As you can see I am struggling with my banner! LOL I got tired of fooling with it the other night. I dont have photoshop and it would help me if I did! ugh! Oh the frustrations! LOL

Have a great day!!

Baby Girl Altered Paint Can

I altered this paint can (bought from Lowe's) this weekend. The guy thought I was weird when I asked for another When I got to the register the cashier asked "what are you going to do with these" and I said "I'm going to decorate it"....she also thought I was weird! Oh well! You ladies know I'm not weird, right? :)

Long time no scrap eh?

Well it's been a while since I've felt crafty or scrappy or whatever. :) But tonight I had alittle mojo and decided to make a few cards. My husband has talked me into selling a few items at the knap-in we'll be attending this month. It's just for fun. Nothing serious. If they don't sell I'm not out of anything.

I finally used my new stampin-up (curvy verses) stamps and I must say I LOOOOVE them!! I didn't think I would really like stampin up b/c they are so pricey but they are really good stamps. I'm glad that I made the purchase! I also bought the stamp cleaner pad set. It's really nice too. I will definitely be ordering more stamps. Budget permitting..hehe

The boo layout I made at church the other night. Had a little crop but only person showed up. I didnt think many would come out anyways b/c of the bad weather we were supposed to get. Oh well. Better luck next time. Maybe everyone else doesn't love to scrap as much as I do! lol

A huge thanks goes out to cutepumpkin from She created a banner for the store!! Thank you so much Elizabeth!! I have a special package going out to you first thing Monday!!

My husband makes all kind of things. He makes arrowheads, bow and arrows, necklaces, knives, tomahawks and a lot of other cool things. Like I say we're just getting the store up so there will be more things added along the way! Check it out here...

We planted our garden today, the drizzling rain. We'll Clint did. :) I was busy inside cleaning. We've been extremely busy lately. I am so ready for Spring Break!! 2 more weeks and I'll be able to relax a bit! I'm really looking forward to some alone time. My scrapbook looks like a ghost town. I'm really ashamed how I've been treating it lately! LOL It's a mess and nothing creative has happened in their for about 2 weeks now. :(
