Happy Sunday everyone! Fighting sinuses and cold weather around here, but to look outside through the window.....IT IS GORGEOUS :) If only the temperature matched the scenary right now!! :) Oh well, warmer days will come in due time and during the 100 degree July days, I will be thinking about chilly weather :)
Matthew was sick part of the week last week. I always told myself when I started paper crafting that no matter what, family would always come first. Same thing when I openend my Etsy shop. Well, as it has grown, there have been days when I have had to work on orders instead of doing something else fun with my monkey. Of course I make up for it, but this week I have had to turn down some really time intensive orders. I just knew that I would rather spend that time cuddling with my sweet boy and reading books and such. I will not be sorry for that :) To top the list of books, Dr. Seuss are some of my favs of course! SO how happy was I to have been asked create banners to go with a Dr. Seuss party!!

One fish, two fish......(go ahead, finish it in your head, I know you did :)

Have a great week!

Birthday Fun!

Hope everyone has had a great day! My headache is much better! Thank you for your sweet comments! My little guy has had a fever since Saturday night, so no preschool today for him! He is fine, just sinus junk :) That's what happens in KY when the temp is 50 one day and 20 the next :) lol.
So, I have a very special friend who I met through the crafty networks that be here in Louisville. She is so much fun to be around and UBER talented. We had a blast together at CHA and has been a lifesaver when I needed someone to watch Matthew for an emergency doctor visit! (When you don't have your fam locally, it helps to have friends like these!!!) Through our friendship, our sons have developed a friendship! Matthew loves to have Elan over to play, sled, and hang out! 
Well, Elan had a birthday recently and I had to make him a special card to go with his gift! (He shoudl feel very specal as I haven't stopped to make a card in for-EV-er it seems!!! So pulling out my fav EPP's Little Boy and the new number dies and birthday present dies from Papertrey Ink, I whipped this up for him:
DO you see that felt??? PTI has FAB felt!!!
Have a warm night everyone! Wind chill is 7 or 8 tonight here! BRRR!!!!!

A Pink and Green Theme!

Hey guys! I am fighting a horrible headache, so I apologize for the short post!
I have a client that I am working with on a first birthday party!
She loves pinks/greens and thought about a ladybug theme until her friend used it first! Bummer! So, in helping her to decide, I put together this inspiration board of some great pink and green party ideas! Enjoy!

My PTI obsession!!!

SO you all know I have this crazy obsession with Papertrey Ink. I have boxes upon boxes of stamp set that I could NOT live without that have yet to be opened. (Yes, problem, I know.)  I am one of those crazies who stays up until midnight on release day to make sure I get to buy what I want. SO, when I checked the blog today, I saw they were asking us to pull out our FAV project from the past year using PTI products. Here is mine!
Why is it my fav? Because I say "Absolutely Fabulous" more than any one human should. :) Paper and Ink- Ripe Avacado, PP: Itty Bitty Dots, Vintage Cream ribbonand button, twine, and Sentiment from Mega Mixed Message set :)
Head over to the PTI blog HERE to check out all that is going on!!

It's a polka dot party!!!

Happy Thursday to you all!
Have I ever mentioned that I love pics from customers? LOL. I do.
This one was sent the other day and I am in LOVE with those white columns!!! FAB!!!

So, glad she liked her banner!
Question- any interior features you just *love*?
I'll go first. Those columns :) 
I also adore; hardword, barnwood used in homes, spiral staircases, concrete counter tops, REAL fireplaces, and lots of natural light!!!! Love it!!

I had a crazy rish order last week for a customer out in California. She was throwing her son a western 1st birthday party and needed my help! Well, 2 banners and 40 gift bags later, she sent me a note to say how much she loved all of it. She even included this picture from the party's photographer and she has more pics to send. Can't wait.
First, I love the pic of the pony. How adorable. Second- I love her home :) And third- I am now working on her latest order of thank yous to go with the last order.
Have a great day!!

More treat bags!

Ahh. A long night makes for a long day.
As much as I want to call it an evening, there is work to be done and a UK ballgame on :) Go Cats!
More treat bags to share with you guys!
I added ribbon to these and hiding the staples where I attached this was a little tricky with the ribbon! But it all worked out!
Ready to fill, seal, and give!!!
Calling it an early night! i hope my friends up north are all safe, warm, and cozy. I always tend to say a special prayer for all the little ones out there when I know cold hard weather is coming.  Nothing breaks my heart more than thinking of a child being in that mess. God bless them all!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
