When the embossing is as pretty as the Beautifully Baroque, you don't really need much else to make a card. I noticed I was running low on wedding cards so I made a few to add to my stash. This CAS design makes it easy to stock up.

Forgive my terrible photo. banners are hard for me to photograph. The is the FREE banner in the SAB catalog, isn't it cute. I did add a few little extra such as buttons and ribbons but you get plenty to make a good size banner, I even had several pieces left over from the kit.
Here is a closeup of one section. Hope you have an awesome weekend!

I am not sure what the attraction is to minions but my kids love anything minion. Sadie has a crocheted hat, a shirt, a key chain, a movie, a stuffed character....wish I had thought of them. When I saw this one on Pinterest, I knew had to make one. Sadie wants me to make 26 of theses for her class as Valentines but that's not happening....maybe this one....
This one is much easier, just wrap the paper around a Twinkie and add a big googlie eye. Thanks for stopping by!

Whenever I am shopping I am always looking for things to alter or use for treats. I came across these Push Pop holders and bought a package several months ago. I filled it with Hershey's Kisses. I took the push part out for the photograph and one of the kids said it looked like a robot....I might just have to make a robot next. I think a mini cupcake would fit in them as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Here are the items on sale this week. I use a lot of buttons and these Vintage Faceted buttons will match anything since they are clear. Let me know if you need something, you can't order through my website at present. My credit card was one of the ones compromised in the big Target ordeal so I had to cancel it. I should be getting a new one very soon.

I got a lot done yesterday but was exhausted after getting home, dinner done, a couple loads of laundry, and homework done. I sat down a few minutes before getting the kids ready for bed and fell asleep. Shelby woke me up at 9:00 and I thought the house sounded unusually quiet, she and Sadie had got the two little ones ready for bed.....bed time snack, teeth brushed, stories read, listened to prayers, and ASLEEP!!! Now this is not an easy task as it usually involves at least one crying, a little fussing, and several trips out of bed to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water. I was so proud of them and so THANKFUL for the extra rest. I love my kiddos!

The twine and the cork embellishments are from the Sale-A-Bration catalog which will be available Jan. 26. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today I have another Valentine to share. I only inked part of a sentiment from a retired stamp to get the part I wanted. I made this one for my Sadie girl. At least ten times a day she will say, "Hey, Mom," and when I say "What", she says...."love you". I love my girl! Thanks for stopping by
