{Just a Quick Hello}

Sorry everyone I've been super busy. We took a trip back to Oregon to visit my mom and family (pictures and stories to come later). Ever since I returned home my computer has been acting super crazy so I'm in the process of shopping for a new one. Just thought I let you know I'm still here and will return to my normal posting schedule as soon as I decide on what laptop I want!

{ Crafty }

Today I woke up feeling super crafty for some reason. Ironic enough instead of getting to express that creativity I got to go down to the courthouse and sit for several hours while the decided whether or not they needed my services.......That's right folks, I'm on jury duty. And can I just let you know exactly HOW much fun being on jury duty is? Pretty much the highlight of my life right now...j/k. Plus as an added bonus after they decided they had no use for me today I was informed that if I'm not used for a case by the end of this week that I'll be back in April to try again! How awesome is that?

Anyway, enough with jury duty, I did get home early enough today to complete one layout and start several others! Here is the one I finished.....

Journaling reads*** Most of my pictures of Kira look like this. Every time I pull out the camera and start snapping away she takes it as an invitation to come and stick her big, black, wet dog nose right in my lens. As if she is saying "whatcha' doing?"

And these are some fun little frames I painted and decorated for my kitchen......they were so simple and came together in only about 1/2 hour.

{ Oh La La }

I was browsing around online today looking for the newest scrapbooking stuff that emerged from CHA this winter and take a lookie at what I found......

1. These new Prima Flowers look fantastic and so cute!

2. Oh and I'm so excited to see some new Chatterbox products! Look how awesome they look! I can't wait to see them in person.

3. 2. Sassafras has some really cute new lines.....some of my favorites are Life Is Beautiful - Indian Summer and Serendipity- Sunshine Lollipop and of course you know I love the whole owl craze so for that there is Serendipity - Owl Pals
4. This little gadget from Making Memories looks awesome. How cool would it be to have this to take with you to crops? I mean right now I take my Cricut w/ me but this would be so much easier!

5. I am loving the colors in Cosmo Cricket's new Fleuriste line, so fun!

Well that's all for now.........

{ Kicking Off Valentines Week }

So I had a pretty good weekend, on Sat. my friend Ashley and I decided we were going to make Vanilla Cinnamon rolls (a yummy recipe that I found on Sherelle's blog). Ashley wanted to try out this recipe so we decided to make both. Once I got to her house though we decided to make make an entire dinner for the guys which in addition to the meatballs included this and this. Then just for fun I wanted to make a batch of these. So we quickly wrote down EVERTHING we we needed from the store and off we went............However we didn't quite make it to the grocery store. Let me back up and try to explain what happened. You see Ashley drives a little tiny Jetta (not such a hot car in the snow) so we were driving along trying to take the back roads to the store and of course we were talking like crazy, when we came to a huge snow drift ( actually we almost drove into the snow drift) Well somehow between the two of us we decided to drive around the drift where it looked as though other cars had been driving. Yea that didn't work so well at all, we made it maybe 20 ft of so before we bottomed out pretty bad. As in we got super stuck. Luckily some really nice teenage boy named Chandler (like on Friends) came along and tried to help us out. No such luck. More men gathered around the car and finally all these men were able to push/pull of out of the drift. Needless to say I am really glad to live in a town where people actually pull over when they see people in trouble! So that was my exciting Sat.

PS* All our food turned out fantastic!

Anyhow I did a little Valentine layout to celebrate this week.......

{ Fun Stuff....}

Here's what I'm am loving on this particular Tuesday.....

1. My new cute phone....A little Blackberry Pearl which is the most awesome thing ever!

2. Today I actually got my Scentsy order that I placed at a party a week or so ago Let me tell you how AMAZING my house smells right now! Worth every penny that I spent on it. Seriously folks these little scent bars are fantastic. If you don't already own some, buy some. I am actually having my own little Scentsy party later this month so I can stock up on some more flavors.

3. American Crafts new Valentine ribbon. I mean the picture says it all. Oh don't you just love ribbon? Speaking of ribbon, this weekend I met the owner of the Ribbon Retreat in Shelley, Idaho and she is a cool gal. If you have not already been to her store you need to check it out. She always has some fantastic deals! ( Plus she told me she is going to be getting in some fun new American Crafts lines!)

4. This fun patchwork purse from Charlotte Russe, how stinkin cute is this....

5. And speaking of purses, have any of you ever visited the Lime Llama website. This girl will custom make any style of bag you like just pick the fabric.

6. I am so in love with these cute little owl thingies. I found them through Scrap in Style TV and now I just really want to make my own.

7. The newest edition of Scrapbooks Etc. Now I usual like CK better then Scrapbooks Etc. but lately they have had some great new articles and layouts. I am especially liking some super fun layouts in this months mag.

Well that's all for now talk at you later!

If You Haven't Already......

You have to watch the movie Hairspray! I was a little unsure as to whether I would enjoy it since I'm not that into musicals, but is was awesome! Love, Love, Loved all the fun scenes and the entire message the movie was trying to convey. A must buy for our house!
