Wicked Weather.....

I still am not sure why after all of these years I still call Wisconsin my home....I dislike the snow and cold.  I am more of your sandals and flip flop kinda girl.  And today we have been in for another large dose of the white stuff!  YUCK!!!  But I have used this time constructively and I update my gallery and website.  If you haven't had a chance yet please visit them, the links are in the sidebar --------------------------------->
They both have new pictures and updated events :)  I hope that you are not snowed in or out as some cases may be, but are at home and warm!  The only good thing may be a snow day for the kiddos....lets cross our fingers.  -xxxx-

Happy Shoveling!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!

First I want to start off by thanking everyone who voted for my Totally Tubular flower....you made it a success, and I won!!!!!!  Thanks :)

Next I wanted to share with you our recent ongoings!  It's been a busy week, but I managed some time to squeeze in some scrapbooking and some pictures.  We had Jump Rope for Heart this week, which is a annual tradition for us.  This year we jumped in memory of my dad and his battle with his heart.

I also worked on a few pages.  Both are based on sketches, here are the sketches and my take on each one:

What's Cooking?

I got bit by a bug today....a cooking bug!  I enjoy cooking but I really haven't spent much time in the kitchen lately. While at the grocery store today I was looking at all of the yummy goodies out for the Super Bowl tomorrow, and thought.......I need to make some treats!  Off I went and filled up my cart.  So tomorrow while the game...I mean commercials are on we'll have full bellies.  Here's just some of our menu:

Taco Dip and Deviled Eggs

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Now I am off, to clean up the kitchen and finish my Valentine's Day banner.  I share pics tomorrow once it's all done :)  Hope you enjoy the game tomorrow!

Hello World....

When I started this new blog in the fall, I had these amazing intentions of keeping up with it all.  Unfortunately I had a major run of bad luck.....and things got put off.  Well, I am back now and ready to start anew.  I have been trying to heal, and found that crafting has been my therapy.  While I haven't been scrapbookng as much as usual, I have been dabbling in some fun home decor projects.  Here's my favorite so far...

Project Liked up at Finger Prints on the Fridge

I have seen these adorable book page wreaths all over the web, and thought I can do that.  So away I went, only I used some antique sheet music.  I purchased a large plastic shopping bag full last summer at a garage sale for $2.00!!!!  I knew that it would come in handy sooner or later ;) The rosettes are made from rolled scraps of scrapbook paper from Prima, and glued on.  I just love how it turned out, I will share to completed entry once I get the painting done. 

The other project that I have started on is Becky Higgins Project Life.  I have learned the hard way recently with the loss of my dad, that even those Little things are important.  So I wanted to document them so I couldn't forget.  So far I am loving it....I never thought that taking a photo everyday could be so hard sometimes....but I am loving the challenge.  "O" started basketball for school and what a great way to remember those learning moments, and your first team!

While searching on Facebook, I also found this fun Totally Tubular challenge.  You had to make anything that you could come up with out of a plastic bottle....mine is the hair clip.  If you get a chance stop over to the Wescott page and vote:

Here's what I have been up to lately....I will see you soon :)

I recently came out of my creative rut to participate in a fun challenge.  Wescott tools offered a Totally Tubular challenge...and I just couldn't pass this up.  It was to create anything that you could out of a plastic tube.  I got right to work, and even convinced my daughter to model.........And my project is one of the finalists.... (yea!!!)

Mine is the hairbow on the right.  If you are on Facebook, please place your vote for me HERE!  Voting closes on February 2nd.  Thanks for your support, and share with your friends :)
