Itsy Bitsy Spider

Aren't these super cute!! I am making these for Will's class. This is the first one. There is a peppermint patty in the middle - I figured this would be the perfect little treat and not to much candy. I hope the kids enjoy them. Carts used Mini Monograms, Plantin Schoolbook and Mickey Font (letter "L" for legs) Will post more pics when done!!

Happy Birthday Will

Four years ago you entered the world and our life hasn't been the same since :) You are becoming so independent and next month you start school -sniff sniff. I wish you could stay little forever yet I also can't wait to see who you become. You are so kind hearted and friendly -you make my heart melt. Even your stubborn side and temper -I love you all! We are so blessed to have an amazing son like you. It has been a wonderful 4 yrs and hopefully we all will be together many more- I LOVE YOU TO INFINITY AND BEYOND, LITTLE BUZZ!!

Summer List # 1 -Toy Story 3

For Will's first movie in a theatre I wanted to do something special. We thought that he would really like to see Toy Story at our new IMAX in 3D. He loved the movie the glasses...not so much. He left them off for majority of the show. But that aside he really loved it. It was so cute to see the expressions on his face! He was also excited to get a box of M&Ms! Will really did well sitting and paying attention and we are going to try some of the free summer kid's movies.

Summer List #11 -Feed the Ducks

Even though it was 90+ degrees Will had a blast at the Duck Pond feeding the ducks. They didn't seem very hungry. We went after lunch and I think they already had their fill at that point.

Mom's Birthday Gift

Here is a birthday present I made for my mom. I used A Child's Year. I chose this image because she is the youngest of three children and has an older sister and brother. She loved it!!

I excited about this group the people are so nice and helpful. I have always loved taking pictures and I am hoping this group will give the opportunity to to take my skills to the next level. Here are some of my shots.

It's Here!!

I got my "Just Because Cards" cart today in the mail and I am super excited to use it! It's has a lot of cute images that would be great scrapbooking as well as cards.

In The Garden

The last couple of years daddy has planted a garden at Grandma's. This year because of his back injury all the work was delegated to Uncle Terry and of coarse the kids. They had a blast planting and picking up trash in the yard. Why isn't picking up toys up home that cool?? Little Anthony just wanted to step on the plants and was not pleased when we pulled him off! Looking forward to a great harvest we planted red potatoes,sweet potatoes,tomatoes,squash and cucumbers .

Some Cards

Here are some of my latest cards. Snowman card was done with the Snow Friends cart and the other 2 with Sweet Treats.

Weekend Crafts

As I patiently await the arrival of my new cricut cartridge :) I thought I would share a few of the things I made this weekend. I've been stressed lately and decided to carve out some Mommy Time" The recipe I made a few months ago in a class and decided to finally finish it up. It started as chipboard and paper - I even bound it(with the help of my bind it all!) I am quite proud of it and am thinking of collecting some family recipes and passing it on to Will one day. Cartridges used From my Kitchen and A Child's Year.

Next I made a quick cart for our friend Gabe's 2nd Birthday. I used Doddlecharms and Sweet Treats. It came out cute!

Green Week #4

For this project we used plastic from a milk jug, juice boxes, straws and stickers- you know the ones that come in the mail that little ones like to stick EVERYWHERE!! Also note if making these place some hot glue around the straw for stability and crayons work a lot better than markers. Then again Will was more excited about the stickers than coloring! Cant' wait to saill them tommorrow.

Green Week #2 and #3

Here are some more earthfriendly projects. The first are some paddles that we made with paint sticks we found in the garage and left over paper plates. Looking forward to using these today since the yard is finally dry. Second we made a ring toss game from a butter tub,an old wooden spoon and canning rings. Will had more fun with the balloon paddles and I think I will too -once we start using them OUTSIDE!! LOL!

Green Week #1

This week we are going to share some earth friendly projects in honor of Earth Day. This weekend we attended our first kid's workshop at our local Lowe's. The kids were able to build a great flower box. Lowe's had a varety of seeds to pick from -we selected morning glorys. I can't wait for them to bloom! Will had a blast! The first thing he said to me first thing this morning if we could " go build some'em"(something). When we told him where we were going he insisted on bringing his own hammer from his tool bench! So cute!
