Okay, so last night my computer wouldn't let me post the kid's pics so I did it today. It is GORGEOUS outside! No rain in sight yet (we are supposed to have it for the next 4 days... on and off!). But alas I cannot enjoy it too much. Gman woke up w/a 102 fever last night at 2am... we got that down with meds but didn't go to sleep until 4am and then was back up at 5:30ish.
You know it's going to be a BAD day when you go to bed when your hubby is getting up! YIkes!
Anyways, here's an easter 'cute' image swap I was in and couldn't for the LIFE OF ME figure out what to do with it. So I procrastinated until Monday evening (I work well under pressure lol) and I had to priority (ouch) it to her as it is due tomorrow. I think it is the hearts on the cheeks that did me in... and I thought I was a cutesy kinda gal... NOT hehehe.
So I hope you like my glittery bunny hehehe.
Thanks for looking!
p.s. I think I plan on altering a few of those tins. They aren't my favorite color so I'm hoping some of my *NEW* basic grey papers (when they come in! ) will match and I will make some nifty teachers gifts for easter for Lgirl's preschool teachers. It could be a dream... but I might be able to get on the ball with that lol.
Oh and I took some GREAT pics of Lgirl on her trike 'wheeing' down the drive way on it hehehe. Will have to post (or maybe even... dare I say it?? SCRAP them and then show you guys! hehehe). We will see!
ETA: I think I have a limit on my daily pics and I think I've hit it! Yikes the EAster card will have to wait.
Alrighty... pics of the kids here. We, being me and the kids, all got haircuts yesterday. I was debating on whether or not to cut Gman's hair as he looks so darn cute with it long and it is curly in the back. Well, if I let it grow then he would turn into Mullet Man, so that decided it for me lol. He got his hair cut off and now he looks like a little man instead of curly boy! Here are his pics a before and an after.
SO... which pic of Gman do you like better? the BEFORE or the AFTER?? Hmmm.... inquiring minds wanna know! hehee
Lainie got her hair cut too... though she looks like she's in pain in the picture. I can assure you no children were hurt or put thru any pain during the takings of these pictures. We are working on the whole smile thing, I even have her in front of a mirror so she can practice NOT looking like she has bad cramping or someone just broke her bike or something. It pains ME looking at that smile when I'm taking a picture lol.
OMG I think it HAS to be my birthday in another life, realm or SOMETHING!!! Went out for a moms thing, which I didn't know was getting over at 8pm. So I decided to go to Michaels to see if they have the acrylic $1 stamps everyone is talking about but ME!
Low and behold before my eyes should appear??? The STAMPS!! Soo darn cool and cute! They said a shipment had come in today and they were getting calls from other stores!! OMG I could have died and gone been in heaven right there.
SOrry but I'm a SAHM and I don't get out much lol. SO this is a big thing for me. Not to mention I found these FAB tins... can you believe they were clearanced? The round and square ones are 50 cents each and the coffee one was $2.00!! Is that a deal or what?! I am thinking I should go back and buy the rest of them lol. What do you think?? Shall I head over there while grandma's here watching the kiddies tomorrow? hehehe
HOpe you enjoy the pics. I have a few more to post but will do it in another one. I'm so excited hehehe.
Darn if I don't need to get out more!!

Hi Everyone! Yes, I am a LOSER.... I haven't posted in forever AND I totally blew off St. Patty's Day! And I'm the kinda person that's all for the smaller holidays (Groundhog's, St. Patty's, etc.). Soo sorry!
I've just been so darn busy! Stamp Club meeting wednesday and then of friday I had a local (or not so local as I drive about 45 min) MOMS of Multiples Sale to participate in. I volunteer to help set up Friday night so I can shop for an hour and not have to come on Sat. It's only open for 4 hrs on Sat. (8a-12p) and it is a MADHOUSE! Yikes!! I was so excited as I get to sell off all my baby stuff! woo hoo! Then I went back Sat (was there from 4p to 10p Fri nite) at 1pm to help sort the stuff into seller #s and pick up my extra stuff that didn't sell.
I also got to buy the clothes for both kids for summer... gotta love that! Anyways, here's a card I did when I was in a challenge group. Which means there were 4 people who sent a 'kit' of their making for their month. We had to make a card using only those items (using at least ONE Of everything sent, i.e. we had to use 1 brad though 3 were sent) and we could add a text image and that was all. So this kit had 3 pieces of ribbon, a brad, 3 pieces of solid CS and one piece of stamped image CS. So this was my contribution. I always end up cutting up part of some paper and using the back for the white part... what does that say about me?? hemmm...
Anyways, I can post the other kits in this challenge over the next few days. Enjoy!

Hey lookey here... my card got 'published' online! hehehe i'm soo excited! In the fabric challenge. I am sooo going to get some of that stiffener stuff they just critiqued so I can use that silk chrysanthemum fabric on cards. Can't wait!
Love the site and love the articles. Plus Cindy is a newly anointed reporter and I can't wait to see what she writes about. She is SUCH a well-rounded crafter (the quilt she made is to DIE FOR) check it out here! And she just got some GREAT fabric for another quilt. I wish I could make one, even if I was 3 times slower than her I'd take it! lol
Anyways, sorry I haven't posted much. I have had 2 sick kids for the last week (YUCK!!) But I had my stamp club tonight and we made a very cute gift card holder purse so I will post that tomorrow, I hope! hehehe
