April in my MAMBI Happy Planner!!!

Happy Tuesday to you!!! I finally got some time to get to my MAMBI Happy Planner lastnight and decorate my pages just a bit. I used to sit and plan every Sunday evening, but lately my routine has been thrown off by something or other. 
Anywho.......here is my April spread. My colors seem a bit off in this photo, is washed out the word? LOL 
I did stick with pastels! I love starting out spring with pretty pastels. I made the ribbon paperclip to match. 


And here is this week's spread. I'm sorry for the low quality photos, I took these lastnight on my counter. 

And this is our "rescue pup", the shelter owner named her Audrey, after me! 
My husband rescued her last week from the median of a busy highway. Sadly she had been dumped by her owners and left to fend for herself. I fostered her for about a week, and today, she goes to a wonderful shelter in San Antonio to be adopted. 
She had to keep me company at work this morning until our local shelter, Judy's Ark, opened up. 
This morning she was going to get groomed, and then transferred to be neutered and then adopted out to a new, SAFE, home!
I really enjoyed having her, but with 5 dogs of my own, I could not keep her. 
I just have to remind myself that this makes room for more dogs to rescue/foster in the future. 
It's a bittersweet day for me. 


Have a wonderful day!!

Spring has arrived and my Pinterest Fail!

Oh MY gosh!!! Where has the time gone!? It has been forever since I have updated this blog. Life just seems to get in the way of my "ME" time. I honestly haven't had much time for crafting, this includes my bible journaling. I miss all of this so much and promise to be back in the swing of things soon.  I am SOOO excited to be getting my own craft room!!! I still need to decorate it and do some organizing, but when it's done, I will surely share it with you! 

I love Spring! It's like a rebirth for earth. What once was gray and brown, is now green and filled with bright colors from all the flowers! The birds are chirping, bees are buzzing and flowers are blooming!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter, these crafts aren't anything spectacular, but I wanted to make my kiddos a little Easter treat. So here it is:

 My 3 are all in their 20's, I also included my son's fiance. Boxes are from WalMart, they are filled w/ candy and for the girls I added some of the Target $1 sticky notes. Jars are recycled, and these little bunnies barely fit. I added some Foiled wrapped chocolate eggs,  but they would only fit in the back. 
This was a Pinterest Fail! LOL 

I also wanted to share some cute critters from around our place, just for fun!

Meet Otis, my neighbor's miniature donkey:

This is Mocha! My 2 yr. old Chocolate Lab.


And her brother Cocoa!



                              These cute little kittens don't have names, as we are hoping to find them a good home soon!



Have a wonderful Monday!!
Blessings,
