With Halloween just around the corner it’s easy to see why I’m thinking about costumes. Specifically, remembering past costumes. In recent years, I’ve been picking a theme for the family to wear and it makes the choices a little easier on the kids (or I just determine what everyone gets to wear). I fell behind… Continue reading Halloween Costumes
Hello! I have been away from blogland, but I am back! I have some sneak peeks from my little girl’s room today! I’m still working at getting everything completed, but wanted to share some of our progress. Before she was born, hubby painted the room in a fairy tale theme. We had a large castle… Continue reading Girl’s Room Makeover (part 1)
When you live in a warmer climate like me, the change of seasons can be subtle or sometimes non existent. It’s been over 100* still around here and I’m longing for some of that cooler weather and the feeling of fall that we get around here. It won’t be that chill in the air, break… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice
I feel like this is all I’ve had time for recently, making it through the daily tasks and scrapbooking. Not that it’s it’s a bad thing. I actually love that I have to have scrapbook time every week because I’m on the creative team. I just want to see if I can squeeze any time… Continue reading Scrappy Sunday
Welcome to another edition of Scrappy Saturday! This week’s newest release by Fiddle Dee Dee was so much fun to play with. Probably because I was also able to get my hands on Bella Gypsy’s new release. I present Magic Moments: Bella Notte! I also worked on a couple other pages this past week for… Continue reading Scrappy Saturday
I’ve had this dream for a long time to get to a decent place in my scrapping ability and be able to have just one of my pieces featured somewhere. I know that I ultimately scrap for me and my family, but just to have one page (or project) displayed for others to see and… Continue reading Scrappy Saturday (Sunday)
I have a little roundup of some summer coloring pages for you today. To say we like coloring would be an understatement. My little girl pulls her crayons off the shelf everyday and insists on having someone join her. Some days she just marks up some plain or scrap paper. Other days she’s really into… Continue reading Summer coloring pages
I may have mentioned before that we try to visit the library often to check out some new to us books and explore different authors. We also have access (through the library) to an extensive online catalog of books, audiobooks, and music. Some of the books we’ve picked out for this week are water/ocean/beach themed.… Continue reading Water week!
As I mentioned before, it’s the final month of summer and I’m really going to encourage the kids to do something other than lounge around the living room. I’ve decided that all month long we’re going to have an activity of some sort. A craft project, helping in the kitchen. And I’m going to loosely… Continue reading Star Art
It’s the 2nd (and sadly, last) month of summer break. So we’re going to try and make the most of it around in our corner of the world. It’s hot here making it hard to go outside and do “typical” summer activities. That’s nothing new to us, summer is hibernation time, while the rest of… Continue reading Happy July!
