Thanks Aunt Teeny!!!

Happy Monday yet again. I have some what
of an annoying headache but still wanted to share.
This past weekend was one of the best
that I had in a very long time. All day Saturday
was just a cool hang out day with hubby.
Sunday was church in which I sang
and then some of the family went to
Wong's Kitchen. It was great.
Afterwards my sis-n-law dropped us back
off at home and we hung out for an hour or
so. She brought over some things for us.
Can you say too stinkin' cute!!!
One for Leilani and one for Kyra and they
both LOVE them.

What is your most recent treasure as of late?

Has It Been A Week?!

Yes, yes indeed it has and what a full week it has been.
I am working on projects galore and having tons of fun
doing so. We also had a few errands to run which took
up just a little bit more time than we would have liked.
All and all that is life and it is worth living with our Savior
by our side. That is the only way that we maintain.
I have this months Hydrangea Hippos projects that I
would like to share as well as a little peak at Mays projects
as well in a few days. Keep a close eye out!

Sad Happy

It's back to hump day again and I am exhausted already!
We had a wild Tuesday which included baby Kyra
loosing her pacifier. I LOOKED EVERYWHERE!!!
Nap time, she did wonderful without it but
when bedtime rolled around she was not a happy
camper. Elliott had to make two trips to the store
in which made him very unhappy. She ended up crying
herself to sleep but woke up mid night crying for it.
Once she had a shiny new pacifier in her mouth
it was light out. I had been having thoughts of
winging her off but after last night I don't think
that she is quite ready. Maybe I am not ready
either. LOL!
I suppose that you all are wondering why I am sad.
Well Picnik, a photo editing sight, is closing its doors
after several years. I had been using them for quite
some time. Tomorrow is their last day!
I am happy because they suggested a few
more sights very similar. I am trying out
Picmonkey right now and I must say that I
love some their effects.
Here are a few pics that I played around with.

Isn't my little smooch the cutest. That was her at her first
B-Day party. She will be turning two at the end of May.
With all of that being said my pictures have a new home
to be edited. One door closes another door opens........

Be blessed!

To The Fair

Well, it is Monday the hardest day of the week in
my opinion. We find ourselves a little slow,
trying to gain our weekly momentum again,
and shake the weekend off. It is hard so lets
try to bring a little bit of the weekend into the
I created this little embellish set I call
To The Fair!

I was browsing the 99 cent store and came across these cosmetic q-tips.
They are one sided and have these extra long sticks. My mind automatically
shouts FLAGS!!!! Really, that is all I had attended to make but we see where
this little idea took me. I never meant to take this far. So glad that I did though....

If ever you are brainstorming other ideas for decor pins take a closer peak
at the smaller wheel and the flags. I pushed a couple of them into the tips of the
q-tips and I pushed the others into a semi-thick mounting circle. These lovely
pins are from Hydrangea Hippo Etsy Shop!

8 GORGEOUS Red Gem Decorative Stick Pins

I used all of mine already!!! LOL!

Hope that this inspired as always and I will be back real soon
with daily randomness. Be blessed!

Beyond Sight

I know it has been a little while since a layout
and I was missing them quite a bit.
This page probably shows just how much.
There was so much cutting and piecing together
but every minute of it was joy. I REALLY enjoyed
this one.

I hope all of you enjoy this page as much as I did creating it!
As always tons of layers and details.
Be blessed!

Practical Solutions Moxie Style

Hey there again! I am back to share one of the
many wonderful challenges going on at
I decided to put my take in on making
my own embellishment. If you want to know
anything about me it's that I LOVE making my
own things with bits and pieces. It just makes me all
giddy inside.

I couldn't wait to dig in to my Dear Lizzy that I won from American Crafts.
Everything is so pretty from her line.

Well, that is all for now. I am off to see what hubby is up to and maybe a little bit
more creating. There is more to come so don't stay gone too long.
