weekend recap...

Bobby has decided that we are going to take a "road trip" every other Sunday, so I have stuff to scrap and we are doing something together other then sitting on the couch or grocery shopping. This weekend he surprised me and took me to Crystal Cave in Kutztown. I missed that field trip when I was little because of having scarlet fever. It was pretty cool and we took a lot of good pictures. I am so excited to start a new scrapbook on Road Trips. Last month's project kit from Jenni Bowlin was kind of about that so I have the stuff to get it in the works already with out buying something else rock on. I have been on a bit of a spending spree with the new line of Martha Stewart Products at Michael's and all the new kit clubs coming out. Plus just got a whole bunch new swarovski's crystals from jewelry supply and new papers from Rouge de Garance and I got the "WE" words rub ons from fontwerks like my "I" words. I thought that would be a fun album to do about Bobby and I and get him to do some journaling maybe too! Hope you have a good week and start getting ready for National Scrapbooking day on May 5th if you are a scrapper! Inspired Treasures has some cool projects for that day!

spring is here...

I am so happy Spring is here. I took this picture Saturday of the tree right outside our door. It is beautiful. I am finally starting to feel creative again. I was in another funk. But I am having fun working on this mini album all about "I" words. I got these rub ons from fontwerks and just thought a mini album using the entire sheet would be cool. I also just ordered the "WE" ones so I can make a book about Bobby and I. Can't wait.

My new shelf!!!

My Dad finally finished making my shelf I am so happy with the way it turned out. I got all the baskets at Target and I have to say it is looking pretty good. I am still working on the organizing part though that seems like a never ending battle. Now the fun part, I would like to do a giveaway to my mad friends that read my blog. It is going to consist of a bottle of that gorgeous MM Bordeaux paint I am obssessed with and a few other small goodies. All you have to do is leave a comment and I will pick a name on sunday the 22nd at noon. I love free stuff and I love to give stuff away so let me hear how much you love free stuff too! Back to scrapping and loving my monday off even though my plans got canceled.

A weekend of staying home with the hubby, some scrapbook shopping (of course) and my first 8 1/2 by 11 layout to go in my new ki memories felt scrapbook. Totally loving it. For those of you that don't know me, I am not a traditional scrapbooker I guess I only do mini albums. I just recently starting getting into 9x9 and now I am feeling the 8 1/2 by 11 love.

something cool for the mad...

I came across this on the Inspire Companies blog and thought it was pretty darn cool. Here is the link to make your own catalog card. I love it. I have been creating a bit lately because of my mission organization. I have to take some pictures. Love the fact that things are in baskets and right within my eyesight and reach. Love it (i am turning in to Debbie or spending to much time with her :) I am going to be doing a give away soon I am just waiting for it to come in actually something mentioned in a previous post that I am obsessed with right now. I know I don't have many readers but I am curious to see who is haunting my blog just like I do to others that I find inspiring. Stay tuned....

More obsessions...

I was shopping the other weekend and after telling myself not to buy anymore lotions or potions for the skin I of course ran into a sale at Bath and Body works that I couldn't turn down. I love C.O. Bigelow's products, the packaging and everything speaks old world to me and I can not resist it. I was so excited to find some of there new products or new to me products for men, a line called Bay Rum, smells so yummy and reminds me of Jamaica where my Hubby and I went on our Honeymoon. I also am in love with their Lemon Hand soap and hand cream. Oh and their lip glosses I guess I could go on and on. It's good stuff though. And the packaging is so inspiring!!!
