mother bird

I have seen a lot of these floating around out there and I just had to have one. Here's my version of my favorite one I've seen here.

gumballs for the soul

I love to do something cute every month for the girls I visit teach. Here's the gumballs I wrapped up for them with some of the quotes I liked from the message.

a guy's party

My boys were invited to a boy's birthday party. It was a contruction theme and we ran with it. We made him a great tool belt and hard hat that we got some tools for.

mom's brain

That's what I've been working on. I have wanted to really get myself organized and I think I finally found what works for me. I needed a calendar where I could see an overview of the month, but that also had monthly projects, budget, events...weekly menu and tasks, etc. So here's what I came up with. Yes, it's big, but it's what works for me.

Here are the pages I made. If you like, just click on them and snag them.
The July and August calendar pages I got from She makes great calendars, I just couldn't wait for hers so I had to make my own for the rest of the year. I am far from a digital designer. When making them so you could grab them there were some glitches. Sorry. Amateur! :)

vinyl craze

I am loving vinyl. I always have, but it seems lately that I have been putting it everywhere.
I got theses great watering cans from IKEA for $.99. My boys love to help me water our garden and my old ugly green one was just not cutting it.

I made this weekly menu a while ago. I have loved using it, but have now found a new way to organize myself, so it's off to my sisters for it.

I love my big metal canisters, but could never see what was it them since their home in on the top shelf. Now when I open my pantry to use one, not only do I know which one to get, but I smile too! :) (yes I am a geek when it comes to gives me a natural high!) :)

I had to dress up my laptop. I've loved this decal even more since now my husband said he won't use my computer anymore! :)

Here are two more things I have done to give you a sneak peak at how our at home classroom is coming along.

I got this great clock idea from here. I used a fake, hallow book for the center, and then just wrapped some books I had with cute paper and used vinyl for the numbers and words. The clock kit was from Hobby Lobby for about $6. I am SUPER happy with how it turned out.
Vinyle even found its way on to my toes! :)

and to complete the look... are the throw pillows and doll I finally finished for Presley's nursery. I think they turned out great.
