Autumn Swap!


I was SO pleased when Mamarazzi of Dandelion Wishes let me participate as a NEWBIE in her Autumn Swap! I was paired up with a fellow Texan! Janna from Happiness is a Journey has a wonderful blog about her personal journey through life. I have really enjoyed reading it and getting to know her.  She is such an inspiration!
Janna sent me the most wonderful package! I just knew this package was put together for just was so personal and wonderful!

I LOVE owls...and Janna keyed in on this and sent me this super CUTE OWL mug!!!! Look how adorable she is!

I just bought myself a new Keurig coffemaker so this mug will be used many, many times! I can just sit and stare at it too!!!

And look at these cute bowls!!!

I cannot wait to pull these out on Thanksgiving day and fill them with some wonderful foods and dips!
I have never been to a Pier1, but after seeing these cute owl items...I want to go! Now!! LOL

And just for me! A wonderful candle, some awesome hand lotion from Organics, and my favorite, Burt's Bees lipbalm. I'm all set for fall!

This was such a fun swap, I'm so glad that I got to be a part of it.
Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Save the Turkey!!!

Well, Turkey Day also known as Thanksgiving Day is just one week away! I am really looking forward to the turkey, my Mom's dressing, my greenbean casserole, and some pumpkin pie. But most of all, I'm looking forward to having my college son home for a few days!

Would a cookie help?

Yesterday, I went on a "card making" frenzy. My supply of cards was getting low and I realized it was time to replenish.
So, I grabbed some card blanks and some papers, mostly scraps and got busy. These days I'm trying to use up my scraps and make several cards from the same papers to save time and money.
Here are some cards I made using the new releases from Whimsiedoodles:

Card details: Digi Image and Sentiment-Whimsiedoodles, Patterned Paper scraps-Cosmo Cricket, Cardstock-Bazzill, Circles-Nestiblities, Brads-The Paper Studio, Misc-White Gel Pen, Stickles-Ranger

Same image: different size and colors:

The picture makes it hard to see the details of the card, but it actually has a scalloped edge. These are by Studio G at WalMart.

Thanks for visiting today. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Thank You!

My thoughts for this card were...keep it or chunk it?! I didn't do this image justice. It is such a beautiful image, and I had such high hopes for this card. I'm just so unhappy with it..I think I need to move the sentiment...I need to place it somewhere else, I even put it on the side of the image, but it looked funny there too.
Maybe a different shape?
Oh well...for now, I'll just keep it on my desk. Any suggestions would really help! :)
