changing Seasons

I just spent all day washing every piece of clothing my 5 kids own...... that's a lot of loads! We dumped out drawers, folded, sorted, packed away for winter and passed down sizes. I still need to get all of the boxed up winter clothes out of storage, but maybe later this week. I always dread this chore, but it feels so good when its all done, the drawers all neat and the hampers are empty {well for a few minutes anyways} The kids are so funny when its time to pass down clothes. The kid growing out of the item, is sad because they are all their favorites, and the new owner is so overjoyed to get their older siblings greatest treasure. Funny, isn't..... How kids don't make fun of hand me downs. My kids Love it, they also love finding one of a kind treasures at second hand shops

Serendipity Scrapbooks September Review

Yay! here is my first month on the Serendipity Scrapbooks Review DT
the items I reviewed:
Crate Paper Sweet Branch papers : This beautiful, double sized paper has a wonderful almost linen like quality to it. The solids have a slight distressing, but not overbearing and the prints are bright and clear. This line is very versatile and lends itself well to both girl and boy layouts. The paper holds up well to inking, bending/crumpling and distressing. Several of the prints also work very well for fussy cutting. All of the solids and prints coordinate perfectly for layering.

Heidi Swapp Frame Circles Clementine:Everyone loves some bling, and these are great bling. The stones are almost a golden color, and look great with a bright or subdued colors and prints. The circles hold there shape well and are easily placed on a project. Try using them to highlight a picture, or create your own bling rimmed journaling block, the possibilities are endless.

Crate Paper Sweet Branch Chip board alphas:What a fun lettering to use on your Layouts and crafts. These chip board letters are adhesive backed, and they stay put on the page. The set comes with 2 fonts, which range in size from 1 to 2 inches and are in 2 colors, so you can mix and match a title or make a monochromatic one. The letters coordinate beautifully with all of the sweet branch papers

Crate Paper Sweet Branch rub-ons:Mmmmm, like butter! Yep, that's how these rub-ons go on! They don't slip or twist while being placed, nor are they difficult to rub on. The set of rub-ons comes with a great assortment of sentiments, happy birthday to fast friends, as well as great flowers, butterflies and other graphics. The rub-ons are dark brown, so the work well with lots of colors with out being harsh
