i love you to the moon...

a phrase i've seen a lot lately. ever since october afternoon came out with their new rocket age collection, crafters have been using the phrase with the collection. all super cute projects. so i made one too....

this week i have a lot of things on my list. i have a few sketches to work on for sassy little sketches. the sampler is going to have its june reveal on the 1st. finish registering the boy for kindergarten. start organizing his room so we can paint soon. and more, but its late. i cant remember. time to catch up on some dvr'd shows and call it a night. hope everyone had a lovely long weekend! i know we did.



quick cards for good times...

rhis coming weekend is my BIL's birthday so i made him a card. with him, things are complicated so i couldnt think of a better line to use than Sunshine Broadcast from Sassafras. I thought this line was lovely when i saw it online, BUT OMG its completely fabulous in person. The colors are beautiful.

aside from birthday celebrations, i have my normal DE-stress friday over at Memories Live On tonight and i made this quick and easy card to help all those kids we know who are about out of school and ready to let the good times roll! i have more graduation invitations than i can shake stick at right now. time to get a wad of twenty dollar bills (most of them are 8th grade and younger graduations, so i'm not ready to get the check book out yet...) and hop on those graduation cards. or maybe i will just make a bunch of these cards tonight!

if you're in the cupertino area this evening between 6&9, come say hello!



This past weekend we went to the Maker Faire in San Mateo. It was a good time and the boys had a blast (so did the mommies and daddies) but i have to say overall its not what it used to be. alas, few things are. even bazaar bizarre. there were some amazing jewelry makers, and a few printers & woodworkers that were stunning. but not much. and definitely not what it used to be. oh wells.

one thing i did enjoy (a couple times) were huge cups of sierra nevada's summerfest.

looking onwards, i have a few classes coming up and samples ready!

for a little bit of a messy project, i'm doing this pocket watch canvas using studio 490 art parts, tim holtz kraft stash & idea-ology line, and loads of ranger inks and paints. everyone will have the chance to create their very own custom canvas.

for a little sneak peak of the June2011 kit from The Sampler, I have created a mini album using the kit to build an amazing inspiration journal. Imagine building this amazing mini album and having a place to stash your m&t's or clippings that jut inspire you!

i'm super excited about these classes but particularly the pocket watch canvas because my mom will be in town and attending the class! so excited to have her come up and its even more amusing when she takes my classes...

anywho, more information will be up soon on the Memories Live On calendar!




A HUGE congrats to Colleen! Not only will her layout be featured in The Sampler's Newsletter, but she will also receive an ENTIRE APRIL2011 KIT! Congrats again to Colleen!

Don't forget The Sampler has a new sketch challenge up for May that is still going on! Be sure to check it out!

i am not a zombie...

i'm just pale and have a cold. the worst cold i've had in a very long time infact. i feel like i'm on the road to recovery, but it has taken its toll.

with that being said, i feel like i can get back to work today. my main goal is to get my crafts back to my craft desk. they're literally everywhere atm. the kitchen table, the living room, the car, even the bedroom! its absurd.

in other news, i wanted to share a link to Elle's Studio's giveaway for Fujimax Intax Camera!!! i have one of these little guys and its so awesome! since i already have one of these yummies, yall should go and enter to win!

anywho, have a neat monday!


what is going on in here?

i resorted to using my actual desk again. i'm making a huge mess. its pretty much awesometacular. what am i making you ask? well....

i just finished up a simple and quick mini album using tons of sizzix, hambly, sassafras and paint dabbers. packing up my bag for tomorrow's national scrapbook day round one at memories live on. then, i believe i will work on some layouts. print some photos. good times.


Congrats to Just Jingle & Babe O'Mara!

little things...

this week was full of little things for us... little bits of happiness... little bits of sadness.

unexpressable (yes, i know that's not a word) happiness comes from this littlest thing. not thing. person. our niece was born this past week and brought hope and happiness to our family. i look so forward to watching her grow and change. she is so tiny and already so amazing.

this week we also hatched butterflies from one of those grow your own butterfly kits and it was time to feed them. i made them a little bouquet of little flowers and it made for a little bit of happy.

little things...

with the news this week & news tonight, its clear things are changing. the world is changing. we are changing. i personally want to embrace each change and make the world a better place... for the little things...
