Weekend Fun!

Had an awesome weekend with my family. We had a family picture taken which i have been wanting to do for years. Crazy i know. But it finally happened. Now i can't wait to get the pictures back.
Here's my girls with Merrick.
And here is my hubby.  He was such a good sport about taking pictures and posing for so many different ones.
And here is Cheli and Akalia dancing or doing some type of exercise. They make me laugh.
And we painted pumpkins. What a mess................................................
But the kids loved it.
Akalia wanted the biggest one she could find. We could hardly get it in the cart.
And Merrick wanted this one. Of course his favorite one was the one he got at school!
And here is his cute little pumpkins. Love those faces.

And here is Akalia's ghost pumpkin. It turned out so good. OH, see that bluish green and brown blob behind the ghost. That is her other pumpkin she painted. Too funny!
We had a fun day. Here is Reena giving Merrick a ride on my new bike.
It was a beautiful fall day. Cold in the morning when we took pictures but nice the rest of the day. Here is one of the places we had our picture taken. Lived here for 25 years and didn't even know this existed. What a beautiful valley i live in.

Conference Weekend

Finishe putting to gether my new Conference journal.
80cent notepad from Staples.
A few scrap pieces of paper and a used flower from a friend that i just could not throw away, cuz i loved it so much.
A new .05 micron blue pen.
I am ready to go.
Here are some pics. :)

Front Cover

Don't know why this picture uploaded sideways, crazy, but there is a little pocket for tabs or what not.

I made a table of contents so when i want to go back and look for something or someone in particular it will be easy to find.

I numbered the pages, well not all of them yet, i will number them as i go.

I found this great talk on It is so good and a must read before conference. I stapled it to the back and folded it to fit and ...

Wrote"Good talk to read about Conference"

AND-------> We can't forget one of the most important things. A nice new Micron pen. Love these and they are so good to use on your scriptures too because they don't bleed through the pages.

Have a great weekend all.

Random Pictures of Fun

It has been ages since i have posted anything so today i thought i would just post some random pictures of fun things.
First my garden goodies. I thought my garden would be destroyed by the snow and Hail, but alas, it survived and here is the abundance to prove it. We have been enjoying many yummy things from the garden and sharing a lot too.
Also, While Akalia and Merrick were here for a week they had fun dressing up and just playing at Grandmas, i quite enjoyed the smile they brought to my face as well as to my heart.

So adorable. Now i need to find that one of Akalia i really liked where we had her hair in curlers and the morning after's effect. So sweet!

So Beautiful and she loved it.
Thats all for now.
Who knows when or what will be posted next.

I have been absent way too long. Summer has been busy. Filled with fun, family, gardening and lawn care. I have the cutest picture of my hubby to share if i can get it downloaded. I love him. He is such a doll and makes me so happy.

Next week my daughter comes to visit for a week and we are going to clean up and clean out and then have a yard sale. Should be interesting. She thinks i am a hoarder. Hardly. I don't even have a couch in my living room. Just 2 chairs and a tv. How can that be hoarding.  I'm looking forward to this clean up and clean out.

He makes me smile. He is so adorable.

My New Craze

So lately, all i have been doing is making jewelry. Crazy i know! But here are a few pics.
I made this one for my granddaughters friend who came and stayed with us this weekend because they had a swim meet.
This one is for my grand daughter. She loves green.
My daughter stole these. She loved them the minute she saw them.
So amazon is selling these bracelets for $50.00 because they have leather, Brother!  I made my own and will sell them for $15 or $20 depending on the beads.
I have tons more but i will  post more at another time so this blog doesn't get too bogged down. LOL!

For Shay

Sweet and Simple
No hassle Thank you card!


I swore i would never do this. Get another hobby where i go crazy. I fought it and fought it but to no avail.
It's all the scrapper worlds fault. It all started with wanting just a little charm on a card. Then more and more until, well look for yourself.
My first pairs of earrings. I must say it was fun to make.
Well i hope you enjoy them.

Moxie Fab- Trigger Tuesday

My attempt at Trigger Tuesday.
This was a fun card to make. I made my own stamp out of foam for the chair.
I used my cricut to cut the watering can.
I used Spellbinders Shapeabilities Floral Bouquet for the yellow flower and then the little ones by it are a stampin up punch. The flowers on the can were tissue paper scrunched and glued.
I used an embossing folder to make the texture on the background and then rubbed cream ink and red ink on it for a different effect.
Just Relax, this was fun to make.
It's not as clever as all the others i have seen but it was fun.
Did i tell you already, It was fun :)

Trigger Tuesday @ Moxie Fab

I like these colors. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo, here is my card.
My Hubby is under the weather, Feel Better Soon!

A Couple of Sew Easy Cards

Notice the zig zag stitching on the side of the card by the pink ribbon. I made the holes with the "Sew Easy" from Making Memories, then i hand stitched it. Love that tool. This cat and flower at the top are from the Expo. Too cute!  The little flower at the bottom and the warm wishes is a die and stamp set from paper trey Ink. Love them!

Here i die cut the house, butterfly, and tag and thank you stamp are from Papertrey Ink. The flower in the middle is a die from Spellbinders. Oh and notice the zig zag again. I used my new favorite tool. The Sew Easy.
Now this little bird was trying to fly away when i was taking the picture. So blurry, but he is cute anyway. He is a new stamp i got at the Scrapbook Expo. The flower up top is a Spellbinders die.
I print out the Happy Bird-Day off my computer.
Well i am off to make some more cards.  Happy Shopping/Crafting/Reading or just whatever you are up to today.

Crocheted Flowers

Been making some crocheted flowers and butterflies. Its hard to see the butterflies but they are in the middle (pink). I am going to the scrapbook expo and my friends want to learn to make these so i am taking some for them to look at. Maybe i will sale a few while i am there. :)
Can't wait for the expo. So much fun with the girls.  Getting ready is fun too. Trying to decide what to take and what to do and of course what to buy.
I always like the statement, "My husband lets me buy as much as i can hide" LOL! i love that. Even though he doesn't really care, cuz he has his fishing......................

LINK: Tuesday Trigger: Button, Button

 Tuesday Trigger: Button, Button

I was inspired by the ribbon on Tuesday Trigger and wanted to try something similar. I also liked all the buttons and have been wanting to do something with this button paper, so i used the red button paper in the background and then cut out the buttons from the cream. Glued a big button right in the middle with coordinating ribbon. You can't tell very well in this picture but the little flowers by bes and friend are painted white to match the white buttons on the red paper.
