Valentine Picture

I was in charge of the craft for Lgirl's Valentine's Day Party and I never got a picture. Her teacher was kind enough to send me one and I wanted to post it to show you guys. The bags were SO cute! The kids loved making them and all of their Valentine's fit into them.

Where has the Time Gone?

Amazing how 2 weeks can go by in a blink of an eye! I can't believe it's been 2 weeks. I am sooo sorry about not posting. I had a class about a week ago that involved making Coaster Calendars. Here's a picture of them w/the Designer Series Paper choices. Can't wait to sell these at my craft shows.

Of course the Craft Show ones will have the 2011 calendars in them. These make GREAT Teacher gifts or coworker gifts.

A Renovation is Coming!!

I can't wait. Stampin' Up! is shaking up their color families and retiring 30 colors! They aren't bringing that many new ones in, just rearranging it and all. I can honestly say that I don't use the Bold Brights or the Soft Subtles that much. All the Bold Brights are retiring except for Real Red & Tempting Turquoise!

They are bringing back 6 IN Colors (which include a couple of my faves - Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red & Wild Wasabi), they are keeping 3 of the current IN Colors (Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo & Soft Suede) AND there are 5 NEW colors.

Here's a picture of the NEW Color Collections! Click on it to see them better. I don't wantcha to go blind!
I am genuinely excited about this. Looking at the new Color Collections, I am thinking I will be using ALL of them. Woo hoo! And you KNOW I will be selling all my retired stuff. So be on the lookout for some serious SALES going on!!

Easter Weekend

We start off the Easter weekend with an Egg Hunt on Good Friday. It usually consists of my kiddos & a couple of other kids that we hang with regularly. Here's a picture of the line up of kids. Waiting for the go ahead to go collect the eggs:

Here's the goodie bags I whipped up really quick to put their goodies in. I really LOVE that chocolate bunny!

I didn't want to give out the traditional junk, so everyone got those paper planters, a mixture of seeds and a bubble wand & tray (those are just plain cool!). That way they could take the goodies home & grow something and learn about it. Instead of having junk that will clutter the already-cluttered home! :)

Here's the Easter Card my gals made last month for the holiday. You can't tell, but the yellow panels are textured and everyone made two. One had yellow panels & one had blue panels. The clouds are hand made also.

And here's what the inside looked like:

Back in the Swing...

of things! Can I say that Spring Break is just one big Fight Week for my kids.
*** NOTE: those with a weak stomach about puking & stuff should NOT read the rest of this post! **

Well, poor Lgirl got the stomach flu (NO fun) the first weekend of Spring Break. Then I thought Gman had caught it, but apparently he's one of those kids that pukes from eating candy pretty much ALL day at Grandma's.

Then I wouldn't let him eat anything for two days to which I found out he's also the kinda kid that pukes in the early morning hours because he has an empty stomach & has collected too much bile in it. Make sense? I know, not to me either, but he didn't have the flu. That's all I know for SURE!

Lgirl did get to have 2 friends sleep over, on consecutive days mind you. NOT the same night, I don't think I could handle that lol. We had Maddy stay Thursday night. We picked her up in the a.m. & headed to the zoo. Where everyone in the INDIANAPOLIS area decided to go also!

Oh, and I ALSO learned that Maddy gets car sick in the 3rd row of my van. Yes, I learned a lot last week. Most of which revolved around puke! Yes, she did indeed puke in my van. But I was ready for it since I had the 'just in case' stuff for Gman. Though she did miss the jug and hit her clothes & my van floor. No worries, we had extra clothes and a towel. Always nice to be prepared lol.

Here's a picture of the kids after we were done. I was wiped out!
