I love Mini albums!

The christmas one is not quite done and they both have more pages than pictured and of course I still need to add photos to the school one but I was anxious to post them because I'm having so much fun!

Nyla was here!

What do you do on a beautiful fall morning with the leaves in full fall glory and the sun shining? If you're Nyla and me you run 13.1 miles around the spokane River in a half marathon. It was soooo Fun! (I still hurt though)

We had a great weekend, we crafted like crazy (my dining room still hurts though :D ). Here are some fun sketch books we made based on an idea I came up with a few weeks ago to make a $.10 notebook from Walmart acceptable to Lucybelle.

I also finally finnished my growth chart/memory book, I didn't get it submitted until 12:04 my time though so I don't think it will get picked up but oh well. I'm going to try to replace these pictures with some that are taken in natural light (instead at 10:30pm).

Fall is in the air!

After days of hot, humid weather the weather has finally changed back to how I love it- sunny but crisp and cool enough for long sleeves, I love it! Good sleeping weather (something I haven't had enough of lately).

Thanksgiving went over fabulously. It was also our 13th wedding anniversary, and I woke up to an immaculate kitchen and freshly baked muffins. I sure didn't leave it that way, it was the only room I hadn't finished and I was dreading spending hours cleaning before starting to cook dinner for 18. (Yes, 18!!!!) I have the best Husband in the world, he could not possibly have bought me anything that meant more to me at that moment, that's why I love him so much.

What did I get him?? Nothing! It totally kills me that in all the commotion of getting ready for this dinner I FORGOT it was our anniversary. I am the world's biggest idiot. I am taking him out for lunch today. I'm going to have to surprise him with something truly fabulous and meaningful when he least expects it.

On another note, I have pulled my most recent layout off the blog because CK has announced they will not accept any layouts that have been posted in online galleries, and I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Tag Baby Album

Here's a baby album I just finished, made from a set of 4 1/2 x 7" tags from the dollar store. I should be spending my time getting ready for Thanksgiving, but inspiration struck and I had to finish this! I still have curtains to finish, pies to bake, and I really wanted to paint the dining room, but I only have one day. We'll see how it goes.

Whew, I'm glad this one is finaly done!

Well it took awhile but my fairy folder is done! I need to step back a bit before I can decide if I love it or not but I'm happy to be finnished !

I'm on a design team!

A Stamp 4 All is a local stamp and paper crafting store and they've asked me to be on their design team. I'll be teaching classes and making store samples with some fun goodies. I also redesigned the store's logo and will be working on the redesign of their website. The other ladies on the design team all seem really fun (and talented)as does the store's owner Dawn. They just doubled in floor space so it will be exciting to see what they fill it with.

What I'm working on right now

I have invited all the nearby relatives for Thanksgiving dinner next week, and made these cute placecards to spice up the table a bit (there are a BUNCH more to finish, LOL) These will be the Oct online class over at, so go check it out! They're made to fit a couple of chocolate kisses in the bottom to weight them down. The layout is my youngest at the park, it's supposed to be a play on words (playing a-ROUND, get it??) Okay, maybe a little lame, but I love how it turned out.
