Another day. . .

Well it seems I am going to have to get "on the ball" when it comes to this blog! lol!  I am happy to tell you that I did finish my little binder using Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime that I will use to house all of my daughter's little "notes" and momentos that she gives us when she is both happy and sad.  My plan is to tuck it away for when she has children and needs one of those "TOLD YOU SO" moments!  There are tons of little envelopes and pockets within this book to hold everything!

Jo and I spent the entire day on Good Friday making the absolutely darling Spread Your Wings Album from Melissa Samuels!!  It is absolutely beautiful and was a terrific project. . .thanks again Melissa!

I am not the only one that has been busy. . .my husband has always been the first to jump at an opportunity to "build" storage or shelves for my scraproom. . . .he seems to "enable my habit".  So he has made a fabulous organizer that holds the Distress Inks and their reinkers!  I must admit that he made it for Jo. . and i'm not sure who was more excited. . .Greg to give it to her or Jo to receive it!  Anyways it turned out beautifully and I have decided that I totally need one too!  He is more than willing to make them for anyone who would like one.  So email me if you think its something you'd like! 

Anyways off to my youngest daughter's spring concert tonight!  Have a great weekend!

Its another day. . . .

Well last night was supposed to be a productive night of creating for Jo Jo and I . . . .of course it turned into a hen fest with way too many laughs! LOL!  We were like two little kids on Christmas morning going through our box of goodies from Melissa.  Then of course Jo Jo had been away for the weekend and had come upon some more goodies to add to our ever growing collection of  BoBunny`s Gabrielle and Time Piece collections!  We had so much product spread out all over the tables it took a little time to get ourselves organized to create!  Our little gerbils were working overtime with all the ideas that we were coming up with!  Of course neither one of us wrote any of them down . . . .so it will be interesting to see what we cook up with it in the future!  **NOTE TO SELF. . . . Write stuff down! **
Anyways we did get some of our project started . . .but of course we have realized we need to pace ourselves so that we have to have more play dates together! 

Tomorrow I have a kids Easter bunny box class. . .the kids will hopefully love making the box.  There is no doubt in my mind that they will be thrilled once we fill it with candy!!

I have been making some progress in getting my room completed.  Still have some painting to do and then the decorating will begin.  I thought I would share a few pics with you now though.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and gets some time to create! 

Happy Scrappin`!

So the sun is shining, the snow is starting to melt (we still have piles of it!) and my day has been made so much better with the delivery of a package!!!!
