I've been HAD~!

Yes I've been HAD! Cathy and Sandy paid a little visit to my house, driveway and road today. They made signs and put them out for all the world to see that I'm turning 30 tomorrow! I think it's so funny and incredibly SWEET! I got the biggest kick out of it. I had no idea they had a little "project" going on. :) I think the signs are adorable. They even used their new handy dandy cricut expression machines for the signs. See the birds and flowers?

Girls.... you just wait, your day is coming ;) Be prepared! hahaha

So today while browsing MSN I came across an article about Pisces. You can read it ((HERE)) Here are just a few-

Strength: Intuitive, compassionate, artistic, gentle, wise, musical

Weakness: Can be a victim or martyr, fearful, overly trusting, sad, desire to escape reality

Charismatic marks: Soft, sometimes frail to medium build, face easily shows emotion(Yes it's so true, and I hate this about me).

Best environment: On or near water, especially the sea(Yes I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being around water and I love the beach. It makes me so happy). The movie theater. (I also LOVE movies)

Likes: Spiritual themes, time alone, visual media, time to sleep, romance, music, swimming

Cathy's Creations

Check out the cute scallop heart card that Cathy made today. They are just too cute for words. She bought these little stamps from the stamping show we went to in Atlanta last weekend. Now I wished I had bought some. ;) Well maybe she will let me borrow hers. Or there is always next year right??!! ;)
Now this card is too cute! It's a folding circle card. Just to precious! It's actually 5x5. I love the little bird stamp!!

This is also a stamp that Cathy bought at the show in ATL. You actually put a little tea bag inside. How neat is that??!! You can not see it but she added green/glittery embossing powder to it to make it POP. Again... so cute! Check her other cards out here

Blue Birds

I worked at the craft shack this evening after work. (It's funny we're calling it a craft shack because it doesn't resemble a shack at
I accomplished a good bit. I have a feeling I am going to have to work really hard after work several evenings to prepare for the craft show. I can hardly stand to be at work. It's so hard to work and think about what you need or want to be doing

Here is the picture of our new birds in the craft shack. Sue painted it Saturday. We love it. The picture does not give it justice at all! Have a great night!

Here are 2 more layouts that I did last weekend of the girls playing in the snow while we were on vacation. I have really been working on my journaling lately.

Here is a name plate that Cathy did last weekend for a baby shower. My dad cut the wood out of oak for her. And she used the cricut and a punch to do the rest. I think it's adorable!!
Well Cathy and I are officially entered into a craft show. Our first ever and we are SUPER excited about this opportunity. We don't have much time since it was a last minute decision. The show will be the last weekend in April. We've had so much excitement lately with our new craft shack, the stamping show and now a craft show. The lady came and painted the birds on the wall yesterday. I will post pictures soon. I forgot my camera yesterday.
O and yes Cathy has started a new blog. Please check her out and send her some blog love!!
