Autumn Afternoon

This Past weekend we took the kids on a day trip to the Oregon Caves. We had such a blast, even got a ranger to give us a mini cave tour with out having to pay for the full one. And, of course, I brought along my camera! Just couldn't pass up the chance to take some beautiful Fall pictures

No boys Allowed

Altered project for the Scrapperie kit "battle of the Sexes"
I found this picture at a garage sale for 50 cents, & thought it would make a great base for a sign for the girls room.
The September Scrapperie kit was used {paint, stickles & thickers were added}

October Review for Serendipity

I reviewed the Kringle line from Glitz Designs

Looking for paper that is fun, funky, colorful, but still a touch traditional for your Holiday LOs? Well the Glitz Design Kringle line is it! This heavy weight, double-side paper takes a fun and colorful twist on traditional Christmas icons. You get Christmas trees, Santas and ornaments but with a edgy feel. The backs of the papers are just as fun as the fronts, there are great grids and distressed solids and. The papers all coordinate beautifully and are great for holiday or winter layouts, cards and making holiday decorations.

Thickers Silver Tinsel, Shiny.....Silver......Thickers, what a great combo! These thickers are so fun and pretty. I just love the flirty, curvy shape of the letters. They are foiled Chipboard, so great for adding dimension to a project. Perfect for winter or girly LOs/Cards. The adhesive holds well, no falling off letters!

Glitz Icing Strips.......How cool are these strips! Glitz has brought us 12 inch long strips of "icing" . These strips are so pretty, and easy to use. Add a whole strip for a big flash, or the strips easily pop apart so you can place individual jewels on a project. The adhesive works great, so no worries about losing your "icing".
Glitz Doodle Roller.....Doodling made easy. Need something extra on a page, but don't want to hand doodle? These doodle rollers are the solution. Just ink up the roller, and go. You can doodle in straight lines, or all over a page. The white stamp surface makes it easy to see how well inked you have the roller, and the roller head pops off for easy cleaning. And you can never go wrong with a tool that is pink!

life gets in the way

wow, I can't believe how long its been since I sat down and blogged! Life just seems to get in the way some times! Right after my last entry we found a new home to move into....... and I had two weeks to pack the whole house. It was totally a gift from God! We went from 7 people in 1000 sq feet and two bedrooms to 3000 sq feet 6 bedrooms {and a schoolroom, 2nd family room, and a great-room.....} We had some amazing help getting moved, and got most of it done in one day and were sleeping in our new rooms on the first night. One of the only things that wasn't moved that day was our phone service, so our phones and pc stayed behind. Um.......BIG mistake! Although we live in the middle of no where, down a long dirt road, in a valley not visible from any other road........... someone who knew we were moving came and stole all our computer equipment and our electric piano. I am mostly sad about the 6 years of pictures that I had on the hard drive, UGH!!!
Well, we are much happier in all this space. I was even able to paint {with hubby's help!} before we moved in , and I LOVE the new colors. I can't wait to finish painting the hallway and maybe my bedroom. Right after we moved in my parents came and stayed for a few days so Bubba and I could go up north to a conference. The conference was so-so, but the time away was nice. And, after driving around lost for about an hour...we got to visit with my best friend and her family for a while.
Things are slowly getting back to normal. I am behind on getting my design team stuff done. But my new craft-room is currently storing all the un-opened boxes, so I need to dig out my scrappy stuff.
