Cardstock: Georgia Pacific, Pattern paper: Basic Grey "Phoebe", Stamps: Autumn Leaves "Mindy's Zoo", Color Box Chalks, Cricut Plantin Schoolbook Cart.(for greeting letters), White Jelly Roll Pen, Stickles, Watercolor Pencils: Kimberly
I cut around the leaves on the branch, and pushed em up to give it more dimension. I also stamped and cut out around the monkey (what a task!), and I didn't even rip him lol. I then folded some of his limbs, etc. forward again, to add dimension. I had much fun creating this one :) Thanks for looking and have a fantastic day :D

Sarah: "Mom, can I have something to eat?"
Me:"Sure, there's some leftover fried chicken on the counter."
Sarah: (absolute silence)
Me: "There are cookies in the cabinet."
Sarah: "Really? What kind?"
Me: "Chocolate Chip and Oreos."
Sarah: (quiet pause) and then, "Sorry, I was licking my lips."
She really cracks me up!! Love you Sarah.

Find the tutorial here. Pretty cute, doncha think??
So I went straight to my closet to seek out an "orphaned" pillowcase, so I could make my own nifty bag. The problem is this, my orphaned pillowcases, aren't nearly as cute as the one in the sample photo. To be perfectly honest, the pillowcases we currently use AREN'T as cute as the one in the sample photo. What I am saying is, IF I had cuter cases, my bag would have turned out (you guessed it) cuter. It has nothing to do with my sewing skills lol. What I really want to do is head over to Target and BUY a NEW cutie pillowcase to make this bag (so I can see if it's my lack of skills or the ugo fabric that makes me dislike this so much). 10-1 I am inside of Target doing just that before the day is over lol. ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL that said, here is my homely bag (that was better off as a pillowcase LOL)
I decided I needed to model the bag, so you could see it on lmao. This photograph was taken by me, in the mirror of my dresser, in my bedroom, which just speaks of romance doncha think??!! ;) I think I will paper craft today.
Thanks for looking and Have a fantastic day :)

For Mom(Happy Mother's Day or Happy Birthday Mom)and/or Don't Throw That Away (Recycle, Reuse)you can submit 1 project (Mother's Day or Recycle) OR you can submit a project for both themes this week!!! Think of it as 2 chances to win!!
So I decided what better time to make a gift for my Mama!!! First I will show you my Recycled Project. I used a tin can (From Manwich ;), to create a pencil holder, or whatever else she wants to put in there. It came out really cute considering I made my own pattern!!
After: I sewed this cover......twice. The first one was to small to slip over the can, I didn't give myself enough wiggle room with the seam allowance >.< There is a liner inside the can too, which you can't see in the photo. In retrospect I prolly could've gotten the same result from simply using a hot glue gun .....but where's the fun in that?? I did use the glue gun to add the trim and ribbon ;)
I can't send Ma a gift and no card. Nope, nope, nope. (I hope you aren't viewing my blog mom, if you are....pretend you didn't see these lol). With that I have 2 chances to win!! :)
So happy together...(everybody sing!)
Thanks for looking!!!
First we have a camera cozy (or iPod, or whatever you can fit in there really). I found the tut here: iPod/Camera Cozy. (I actually made 2 of them at the same time, one for my DD and one for DS's GF. Holy over usage of abbr. lol.)

In my world, they are as follows (and in this order lol) :
I am a creature of habit, always have been. I fear change. I dislike the unknown. Well, Time Warner Cable our cable, phone and ISP service have upset my routine on the most basic of levels. They are constantly changing channels around, adding this, taking away that. Whatever. Today started like any other. Get the kids off to school, come home, turn on my music, start cleaning. WHOA something is a bit off, the music isn't right. See, I have digital cable and one of the perks of paying the extra bucks every month is that there are quite a few music channels to listen to and there are no commercials, talking, or static. I take advantage of our surround sound being hooked up to the tv and listen to music via this method. EVERYDAY. Channel 919 "Adult Top 40". Laugh at my music choice if you will. But it has peppy songs that keep me cleaning up after my pigs, I mean my family (as an aside, if any of my family are here reading this and decided to be offended by that comment, please feel free to stop being a pig and I will retract the comment). Got a little off track there, I apologize (but seriously, how hard is it to put a cup in the sink??). Back to the musac. I guess my station of choice wasn't popular to the masses. They yanked it and in it's place? Adult Alternative. I found out I don't care for Adult Alternative. I want MY station. The station that makes the mundane task of cleaning my house (EVERYDAY) a little less mundane. Fun even (O.O Did I really just say that? Wow). I enjoy songs I can understand the words to, sing along to, dance to (if I feel so inclined). I decided not to panic, maybe they just moved channels around. Nope. A little more desperate. Maybe there is another station I will like as well. Nope! I currently have it set to "The Hit List", it's not my favorite thing. There are some good songs (Jamie Foxx has a nice voice, did you know this? He was singing a lovely song about alcohol earlier.) I am gonna keep telling myself that I will get used to it. On the upside, I will know all the lyrics to the songs my kids like to listen to, and sing along to them in the car. They. Will. Love. That. Time Warner Cable, I implore you, resume the regularly scheduled programming.

Thanks for looking and have a great day :D
Isn't it the cutest??!! Jessica Jones of How About Orange Blog, created it,from this pattern HERE (it's a freebie!!), by Rae Hoekstra of Made By Rae Blog. Other than the magnetic closure, I have everything required to make this bag. I hope it goes well and that I can follow directions properly. I am not a great sewer, but I love sewn things. So I continue to try :D
I also came across a zippered pouch [on My Spare Time Blog] this morning that I also might try to make. Hopefully with better results than last time. Lastly, I was on a blog search the other day and came across this one called Serenity Now, and this one titled Miss Britt Dignity is Overrated. I have added them to my list of blog links because I simply like to read what they have written.
P. S. - I am not affiliated with any of the above sites, I just found them informational and/or interesting and decided to pass them on :)
Have a wonderful day! :D

Ryan and Sarah managed to find presents to give Emily from their stash of stuffed animals in their rooms. I thought it was very sweet of them. They covet them, so it means something that they gave them to her :).
