sharing from my heart to yours
It's spring time AND vacation time!! My family and I are enjoying life on a Midwest farm as spring arrives to the area. My husband's family has a dairy farm, and we are visiting for awhile.
It has been a fun trip...
I'm pretty behind in my blogging, wouldn't you say?!
Give me another week or so and things should be back to
In the meantime, I'll keep enjoying the
clean clothes on the line...
that *ahem* FRESH smell of cows...
and lots of love and laughter!
I may even share some photos with you when I return!
The contest is over...
the random winner has been selected...
Myra will receive a Sort-n-Stash Pocket Set
in the style of her choice!
Didn't think I'd get this week's project done, but I ended up having a quiet afternoon and was inspired while reading the BHG magazine!
Decided to bring some of this spring inside!
This was another fast and easy project.
Getting to be my specialty for this
Color My World Challenge
It's been fun seeing what all you who are participating have come
up with! Thanks for motivating us, Karen!
This project was pretty basic.
First I got a cool vase that my mom had given awhile back and filled it
about half full of smooth rocks from outside.
Then I found some decent looking branches
and put them into the vase using the rocks to hold them in place.
I cut out a bunch of flowers that I printed onto green, brown,
and white cardstock and hot-glued them to the branches!
It's a neat springy accent to my 'green room'... the entry/dining area.
I'm LOVING this spring weather and sunshine!
How about you?!
Did you notice the new look on the homepage?
I decided it was time for a change... something bright and 'springy'!
What do you think?

Ok... so maybe a bit carried away! :) But new Tupperware is so fun! My pantry and cupboards looks so nice now! I had a blast filling these babies up, and throwing away all the boxes and bags that caused the chaos! So my organizing IS progressing... slowly.
Looks great as a brooch on a shirt...
...or a jacket...
...or a belt...
...or a pillow...
...or a blanket...
...or nearly anything!
It's been a busy week over here. Not so much DOING... but BEING. Being a mommy, being a wife, being a friend, being a hostess. A friend of mine from the Midwest came for a visit and stayed with us for a few days, was a nice time! I was on the computer very little all week, but thought I'd come and post a project I did the week before. Sky had a simple gray shirt and I decided it needed something more. So, continuing with the penguin theme, I added a cute little dude onto a cute little dude's shirt! Simple, but a nice touch!
Sky was QUITE excited!!
ok... so he actually didn't care a bit! :)
Did you notice?! There are some *NEW* things here in the shop!
Personalize your Paci!
What fun!! :) With many different styles
to choose from, you can make your little darling's
Perfect Paci Set even more perfect!
These look great on the new Solid Color Paci Sets.
I'm looking forward to having lots of fun with this new line!
But wait...! There's more... coming soon!

some MORE new products, as well as a contest &/or giveaway!

March is GREEN month! Time to start thinking green... which isn't hard to do with all the spring buds, sprouting plants, and bright landscape appearing all over the Pacific Northwest! I LOVE this weather! Green is probably my favorite color during the springtime!
And no, I never did get last week's project done. So sorry! A pink recipe!? Hmm... it just wasn't coming to me. Or I just wasn't being very inspired... one of the two! MAYBE someday I'll do something and post it, but for now, I refuse to feel guilty for missing a week! I knew there was a good chance of that happening when I started.
I am now just praying that we don't start FEELING green in our household! My hubby got that flu bug yesterday, so praying my son and I don't get it now!
May God bless you this week!
