Nursery Decor and More!

A couple of weeks ago, I did a post for Tater Tots and Jello with a paper line that was sent to me.  I chose to do some Nursery Decor and more!

I was so honored to be a part of her fun challenge to see what I could make with the fun box of goodies  that she sent to me…it was just like Christmas when I opened the box!

Rolled Paper Flowers

I have a real weakness for flowers…as some of you may already know!  So when I saw a rolled flower made out of scrapbook paper, I just had to figure out how to make them and then make a fun spring bouquet to go with my Easter decor!rolled paper flowers Continue reading

Fun Spring Banner!

The weather here in Utah has been unseasonably warm, while I know the people in the East are buried in snow…It is crazy!  But our warm weather has gotten the spring bug in me.  I have been out working in my yard, I cut off all my raspberry plants and raked all the leaves and junk out of my garden.  I still need to trim all my old perennials and get the fertilizer going!  But I am enjoying this beautiful weather to work in.

This year, I did not put out any Valentines decorations, so I am ready to get the spring/Easter stuff out already!  I went to the American Crafts scrapbook sale with my friend, Sharee, and we got some really fun papers, so I just had to make something with it!  This is what I came up with!spring banner Continue reading

Last week I was invited to a SNAP event for bloggers that was held at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale!  I was so excited to go that I almost went a week early!  My friend had to tell me that it was not for another week!  :)

#acwarehousesale  This sale is in Orem, Utah at the old K-Mart building,  so if any of you that are local would like to visit this sale I heard that they have extended it until end of January!  If you have any scrapbook lovers on your Christmas list, this would be the perfect place to find all kinds of goodies to fill that need!

I was able to really stock up on some fun items…look at all of this goodness!AC warehouse sale Continue reading

Anniversary Book

Anniversary Scrapbook

My husband and I just celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary!?  How can that be…when I still consider myself to be a forty-something?  The numbers just don’t crunch!

But I am the luckiest girl alive because I am truly married to my BEST Friend!

I decided to make a little scrapbook because of a fun little idea that I saw on Pinterest, it uses all kinds of numbers and I knew that my husband would love it!Anniversary Book Continue reading

May 2014 Visiting Teaching Handout

First of all I have to apologize for the troubles that we had yesterday!  A lot of you let me know that you could not see any of the images or navigate around the blog, and I appreciate all of the support I recieved.  I think that we are now fixed up again!  Thanks for your patience  during  our new facelift!

This month for your visiting teaching message to your sisters, you will need to pick your favorite conference talk to teach.  There are so many good ones again this time that it is hard to pick! :)

Since it is soon going to be gardening time around here, I thought this would be a fun theme to work around, so I made my regular card, a blank card and a seed packet!May 2014 VT handout

3-D Carrot Box

15 Carrots!

I have some really exciting news to share with you before I get to my regular post!  This little old blog is getting a new face lift!  I am working with my web designer and I am really excited about the new changes that will be coming soon.  We are going to have a fresh new clean look and hopefully it will easier to move about my site!  

So stay tuned…

Instead of doing my regular Thursday’s Thought today, I decided that it would be fun to do a paper crafting project!  And what girl wouldn’t love having 15 carats carrots for Easter?

April Conference Snack Tags

This weekend is the General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints  (the Mormons).  I love conference weekend and look forward to it every six months!  For those of you that want to know what conference is all about…you can check it out here.

I love conference weekend, because we can stay home and watch it on TV (in our jamies, if we choose to!)  Sometimes we have all of our families together and sometimes my husband and I just watch it together.  But there is always a great spirit in our home and I love the messages that are taught and the things that I can learn!

I have already downloaded and printed my conference packet from Sugardoodle and I have my conference notebook ready to go.. to take notes…doodle…and just enjoy the weekend!

It is always a must to have some great treats or food while watching conference! :) 

So I decided that I would make some fun tags to go along with your conference goodies!  These are fun to pass along to your VT sisters,  or to make for your family, or friends!  You can tie them onto individual serving size packages for everyone, or make one big package for the whole family!
