Well, I found this nifty little trick about buying my son clothes! I was buying all these winter clothes with a faux sleeve. There is a long sleeve sewn into the sleeve, but it isn't structurally part of the garment. I really liked that layered look so bought a bunch like that.
Well, then I realized that these shirts can do double duty! Come spring when the weather warms up, I'm just going to cut out that faux sleeve and VIOLA!! he'll have a bunch of "new" spring short sleeve shirts so I don't have to go buy a whole new wardrobe!!
Oh, and if you haven't yet, be sure to enter my giveaway here. I'll draw winners on Tuesday.

(SCAL - Sure Cuts A Lot - a software program that allows you to use your computer to cut true type fonts and other shape svg files with the Provo Craft Cricut machines (works on all machines). It is an incredible program. I'm alway using it - and I'll have more to show of what I'm currently doing with it).
If you'd like to purchase SCAL - there is a link over on my sidebar -->
scroll down a little bit until you see the red scallopy button that says "Want Sure Cuts a Lot?" That link will take you to the ordering page. And if you have any questions, leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be glad to answer!
Here's the signs I made:
oh yeah, made the sign with vinyl. Super easy! :D
Happy Scrapping, but be careful - there might be a camera watching you!!!
oh, and uh, if you haven't yet, be sure to

Well, I received the box and am so excited to put it all to use! Well over $100 worth of stuff and most of it is from two of my favorite four manufacturers!! (K&Co & Basic Grey)
So the kids convinced me that they needed some of it. Well, all of it is stuff I'd gladly use (I usually sacrifice to them, but not this! LOL) - so we went and cleaned out some of my older stuff from my stash so they got fun stuff too!
Okay - need to go put it all away now. Good thing CK sent me those vertical organizers a couple weeks ago or I wouldn't have a place to put this!

Well, onto some paper stuff......Here's a little bit of what I've been working on.
The first one is one of Cody's first real drawings. He drew a Cubbie bear for Awana. I thought it was pretty impressive!! (but don't all mommies think that :) ). I love preserving their art via scrapbook pages. I know it's safe. And the best part, it's nicely organized and not collecting dust in a box somewhere.

WE COULD ABSOLUTELY BUILD THIS :) This particular unit would be:
$350 (plus shipping & handling)
It would ship ASSEMBLED.
I don't know what shipping would cost - obviously it would vary by location. I don't think the assembled shipping would cost anymore because most shippers ship by weight rather than volume (at least for freight).
THIS WOULD ALSO INCLUDE A LIFETIME WARRANTY.
As well as a choice of thermal fused melamine colors (5 base colors standard, about 60 to choose from for additional $30). You could also have it made of prefinished birch for a small upgrade fee (probably $30).
It could also be built "green" if desired. Because we run off solar and wind power, we can easily use certified green materials to create it. (cost would increase however)
Could also be built with different amounts of cubbies. At the moment our production schedule is full, but we are working on exact dimensions and prices for different sized units. If you're interested, please let me know!

So now I've been photographing more pages to share.
Monday, February 15, 2010
One of my pages was noticed by an editor of Creating Keepsakes! I'm so excited! This is the first time (outside my silly video a few weeks ago) I've been noticed! I've honestly never really tried, but I'm excited! And the great thing is that they commented how this is a page that really works with no journaling. The picture says it all and that's what I was going for!

Here's a special little treat we made for some friends. Can't say the idea was mine, I borrowed it from a design team member at Paper Trey Ink. (it's a box of cake mix and decorations to make some special cupcakes!)
Tuesday, February 9, 2010
Yup, you guessed it. No blog title again today. But I wanted to share these last pages I have photographed so I can do the ones currently sitting on my stand.
Again, as you'll see in these LOs, I'm loving the cuttlebug and making my own thickers!

"what did I order that I'd forgotten about?" Hmmmm...
So Aly & I got into the car and fought our way down the driveway. Yes, fought is the appropriate word. Our property is SO muddy from the snow thaw and then rain rain rain that even with 4-wheel drive it's a crap-shoot to get up and down the drive. My car looks like I've been rooting. Seriously.
Made it safely into down and found IT!
Have you ever seen The Christmas Story? Well, yes, haven't we all. Remember the prize the dad won. He was so excited it was a bowling alley or something. Then it came and it was marked "fragile" But crazy old man he was pronounced it "fra - ji - lay, must be Italian" LOL! His box full of as the mother called it, "electric sex." But he won it by golly!!
That's how I felt today. It was my prize from the CK Commercial Challenge. How fun!
So here it is, in all it's wonderfulness!
The kids were slightly disappointed when I told them they couldn't have any of the loot, but they were happy to settle for the pop-pop wrapping.
Here's a few to look at. Hope you enjoy!

Lots of excitement, but back to the whole purpose of this here little blog. The pictures and pages.
Tuesday, February 2, 2010
So after about 10 tries it still was 90 seconds. I couldn't say it any less. I submitted it anyway.
Then someone brought this to my attention (thanks Erin ;)).......
Creating Keepsakes Blog
(You really should click it -)
Now, I don't know if I was chosen because of desperation, or because they really liked it! The call had been up for almost 36 hours and I was the first one to respond. :O That tells me that either I really do have no life and am that pathetic or that everyone else is much more dignified than me and didn't want to make an idiot of themselves on the internet. But hey, why not have some fun in life, right ;) ?
But at any rate - I'm STINKIN' excited and I don't care!!!!! I'm glad they did catch the humor - I was trying to be funny, but sometimes I feel like my attempts at humor fall like a lead balloon.
(now if only I could change the way the video is paused so I don't look like a deranged hill billy missing a front tooth - shhh - I didn't need that snicker ;) LOL )
oh, I'm just so giddy right now. Yes, I know, I AM PATHETIC! LOL
