Whimsically White: Special Order for Lisa M.

For some reason I have a bit of a hard time photographing white bands with my darker hair. They always want to wash out...that said...I LOVE this band! I can't wait to see how it looks on Ms. Lisa!! I hope she adores it too and that it finds a happy place on her head! Have a great day.

Up to fun.

Tessa and I had a day hangin' at the mall...yeah, she's only 7...and she loves the mall...wanna know why?!?!? So did I, so I asked her and she told me that she likes going to the mall because, "there's a candy store in it and a pet store where you can see kitties." Awesome, I love it.
Here's Aaron's Kindergarten artwork of his body parts. I love that he's so colorful on his arm and look at that cute finger.
Oh my goodness? Could I love this munchkin anymore. Dear Jenny took Jonah to the library and he created this beautiful leaf art.
Had to add Jakob in there participating in his favorite past time. EATING...ME...OUT...OF...HOUSE...AND...HOME!
The kid just won't stop growing. At 9 years old he is close to 5' 5" more inch and he's as tall a me!!!!

When Tessa was a Princess

When we went to Disney last time we splurged and Tessa got to go to Libby Lu's. She wanted to be a princess so badly. There were probably a million bobbie pins in her hair and that crown is real metal and heavy but she loved every minute! So worth it for the memories it gave us. Have a great day.

Am I Enough?

This photo of me has been kicking around for some time and I thought I might do a reflective layout with it. It was very therapeautic.
Journaling reads:
am i enough,
can I be enough...for the...for my children, for my husband, for my church family, for my friends and my neighbors? Do I pray enough, serve enough? Am I patient enough? Do I do enough to help others? Am I good enough to stand in His presence if He were to return now? I don't know if I am...but I want to be.

The sun spot is actually on the original photo but for some reason was even more enhanced in this photo.
Have a great day and don't forget to give thanks!

Pom Pom Pink

Had fun trying a new technique with the felt. I have another one up my sleave too that I'm itching to try. This one was sure bright and perky and reminds me of a cheerleader in some ways. hahaha.

Another special order of dark pink and HOT PINK! Wowza!

So very vanilla

Vanilla is said to be bland...blah...boring...BUT NOT THIS HAIR BAND BABY! She's va-va-va-voom! Really priceless in the vintage, girly flavor you get here. I have one more of these...on special order...not a band though...just the piece to attach to a barrett because the woman who ordered it wears glasses. How smart is that?!?!?? Have a great day.

Teeny Baby Photo Shoot

This little girl seems so small to me...all of my babes were over 8 lbs. It was fun to get out there and shoot some photos again.
I'm not sure on which one to use as an announcement...Ultimately it's not up to me but they're all so cute!So stinkin' sweet. She was only asleep for like five minutes so I was happy to get this shot.

She just looks like HEY, whatcha lookin' at. Have a great day!

Just a little reminder...

it can be clean again. I have BIG plans for you MR! Just you wait and see this flunk of a cabinet is going to transform into a hunk!
That table skirt is about done for...I need something that's more ME...less what was in the fabric stash.

Whenever I create ANYTHING my space turns into a disaster zone. I'm slowly but surely getting back to this. But I've been so happy scrappin' and making hair bands I can't complain too much. Watched General Conference today and feel so uplifted. Hope you're all doing well. Have a great evening.
Time to purge some stamp sets...Ebay here I come.

Going Gray

One of the special orders I had was for a gray and black band...I've really been wanting to do an all black one but now I'm stoked to make a gray and black one for myself. SO DELICIOIUS!. Let me tell you how this warms me up inside...that gray is so yummy. My daughter tried to steal it. I hope Mrs. NY#1 loves it too! Thanks for stopping by for a little eye candy and have a great day!

PS I'm thinking of creating a blog just for my bands so they're all on there together.

Sate Fair so last year

Finally completed a layout on the our State Fair visit last year. It was definitely more low key than this year...I only had two kiddos to deal with, well, and a friend of Aarons...EASY! Funny that we all had coordinating clothes on...even Aaron's friend... I didn't plan that. The big "square" at the top left is actually a cut out I made of the state of NM. Nice to live in a polygon state! Have a great day!
