I really love the way this new thickers alphabet look almost Sugar coated...so yummy. And these are a brand new CHA release so they are not available in stores yet. I added silver leafing to the edges of these Maya Road flourishes... in Love with these things...love that they add the swoosh I need but are still see thru. These little notebook papers are quickly becoming a favorite as well!

Baking together this morning and She looks up at me out of nowhere and declares
" my only wish in the world would be hmmmmmm......two things..." holding up two little fingers
" to stay home with you mama, everyday, forever and ever......aaaaand to eat cheese!"

ETA: I am loving all of the sweet littles you guys are telling me about! I quickly blogged this moment so that I could have it here to remember, but all of your comments and wonderful little moments have given me extra smiles! just makes my day, thanks:)
And the cookies turned out INCREDIBLE! what a great recipe. We cut up the skor chunks into the ones that "T" wouldn't be eating and I think I have a new favorite, mmmmm!

It's such a fun kid project ( or big kid too ;) for that matter) Just made by bending some hardware wire, adding beads ,shells, buttons...whatever, and attaching to earring hooks.

Goodness knows it would be easier!
Me for example- I love paper, I love digi, and I reeeally love to mix it all up. But I feel like my look, my style, on an all handmade project is very very different than the look or style of my all digi projects. That is OK, it's just fine...all a part of the creative journey I think. I am always growing, evolving and changing what I do and that is part of the fun.
I often stop and ask myself, "what would I do if this was paper?", or "what would I do if this was a digi page?" and that has helped me to grow so much in each art form. It makes me want to play with other things , try more, learn more.
or the different style you might have when trying either?
where are you most comfortable?

Still playing with this kit. I am like a kid in a candy store, seriously I love it!
Here is the inside
and a here's closer look at the bottom. Once again super simple but happy, and really fun to do; buttons are "glossed" in there using making memories clear glaze. :)
and that's it!
Have a great start to your week

This great guy of mine does everything with us in mind and never asks for anything for himself. Living with 4 girls can be tiring and dramatic I am sure but he faces every bit of it with a smile and makes our world a lighter brighter place.
So, tomorrow I will NOT be leaving on a jet plane for winter CHA in California as originally scheduled. To those I was planning to meet with or just meet up with, we will be in touch soon. I wish you all a very fun few days...the winter show is super huge and so exciting! I will miss it but I know there will always be more.
There was a last minute change of plans and I decided to stay here at home when I found out there was an opportunity to send Cam away.
HA! sounds like I was trying to get rid of him, no, truth is I would spend everyday with this guy if life let me. There never seems to be anything really great that I can do that is truly for him though, so when I got wind of the opportunity I knew just what we had to do. I love this photo of Cam and Kaiella having a goodbye in the driveway as we sent him off on his surprise adventure with 3 of his friends- A ski trip to Banff ( The Canadian Rockies), a guys getaway...no worries about taking care of us, just mountain air and lots of fun.
He deserves it 100 times over :)
Anyone else out there planning any valentines day surprises, big or small???
have a great weekend

I Started with this cute little palm sized tin of tiny Prima flowers and used the acrylic circle from one heart one mind as a template to trace out my photos and pages (below). It fits just right inside with a bit of room to tuck in the strip of fabric holding the book together.
note: another night time photo above, working again with only one lamp on.
I have been taking lots of photos of the steps for these projects to include in the instructions that come with the kit. It was taken as described on the canvas post below :)
Happy weekend my friends!!!
