A Little Birdie Told Me...

HI there! Just a quick post share a card with you. Whipped this one up a few days ago using a Pure Innocence digi stamp. Sentiment is a rubber stamp, I think by Stampabilities.


Been super HOT in Texas these days......perfect crafting inside weather!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

You Are a Blessing

So happy it's Friday! It's been a hectic week, but I am thankful that I found some crafting time!
I also found a cousin on Facebook who has turned out to be a blessing! She added me because she was on my sister's friends list. Turns out we are cousins!! Over the years I have lost touch with many family members and I'm thankful that Facebook has been a place where we can reconnect!

I made this card for all those have been a blessing to me:

Card Details: Patterned paper-My Mind's Eye, Image-BugABoo, Sentiment-Create with TLC
 
Our family is just full of talent! This is what my new found cousin, Catherine sent me:
 
Aren't these the MOST adorable things you seen!? I have a brand new niece and have really enjoyed looking for pretty, girly things. Catherine was so gracious to make me 2 pairs! She is super talented!
And here are my nieces tiny feet!!!
 
We were in church when I was trying to put these on her. She was kicking because she was hungry. She was NOT in the mood to try on shoes! But as you can see, they are a perfect fit...and oh SO beautiful! They lace up like ballerina slippers...but Asmari just wanted to eat!
 
Have a blessed Friday!

Confession Day....I have an Obsession

You see....for as long as I can remember, I've had this obsession with cups, tumblers and sometimes mugs. And I finally realized that it goes way back to my childhood. You see, my Mom took my bottle away at a very young age...I think I was 8 months old. I had this little pink cup I'd drink out of. I'm sure I struggled...but eventually succeeded I'm sure! LOL So...I have to put the blame somewhere...Thanks MOM!!! LOL

Not sure where she bought this cup, but it's about 45 years old.
 So I'm sure she only paid about 10 cents for it.

And that one lil' cup....led to this obsession:

These are currently part of my "favorites collection". My Divided House tumbler, which I made on my own, my Diva Zebra tumbler, and my Cute Owls tumbler.
 
And this set: Aluminum tumbler with my kids' photos, my Mason jar tumbler, Aluminum owl tumbler which I sadly have lost the lid, and the newest addition...
The Pink Owl" looks like a can" tumbler!!!
I found this one at a book store that has gone out of business. I lost the screw top and would love to find another. Looks like the one pictured, but the smaller version. Thanks for any help~~~~
 
Oh..and besides tumblers....I LOVE planners!!!! But that would be a whole other blog post!
 
I currently have these 3 in my purse...the Zebra one is my daily memory planner, I jot down special memories of the day, or news events, etc. Things to look back on. I also add tiny pictures, or quotes, or even Fortune cookie papers!
The black one is for work. I right in my hours, court days, document things, etc.
And the pink one is for my daily personal reminders. such as my kids' events, to do's etc,
family bdays, anniversaries, etc.
 
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Saturday!!!

It was a SPECIAL day.....

My sister's birthday that is. You see, the other day was my one and only sister's birthday! Her birthday is as special as she is to me. She's my older, wiser sister. I meant to post this on that day...but my schedule this week has been crazy. PLUS..on her bday we had to travel to Austin to move our boys from one apartment to another. It was HOT!!! But, we got it done.

I made my sister, Arlene, this card and sent her a little goodie package. I hope she enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it just for her! I am posting this a couple of days late because I didn't want to spoil her surprise!!!

I actually won this set last year from

Princess Fussy Pants


Good Saturday to you! Today I want to share a super cute and easy set I put together with a store bought Onesie and Handmade Tutu.

When I saw this Onesie at Walmart it just screamed....."PUT A TUTU ON ME!"

 
So...I made one. My daughter's cat was a bit curious about it...maybe she wanted to try it on for size.
 

 
and here's the set! Don't they look cute together!?
 
 
Have a great Saturday!

Easy July 4th Flag Onesie

Happy 4th of July! My niece, Asmari, was actually due today...but she came early and made her appearance last week. If she was going to be born on July 4th..I wanted to name her Liberty! LOL But...for one, she's NOT mine, and two..she came a week early. Asmari..this is Hebrew for "the anointed one". Pretty, huh?  Anway, I thought it would be fun to make her this outfit...her 1st holiday outfit! :)

 
Here's a full view:
 
It was super easy to make. I stitched on some red ric-rac and then stithed on a little blue bow.
The hairbow was made from ribbons and a felt flower I had. I attached it to a white crocheted headband.
 
I wish you a wonderful Independence Day! May it be filled with fun, family and food!!!
