There's nothing I love more than sending RAK & fun things in the mail to friends. One gal I'm always sending random letters to sends me the cutest and most thoughtful cards she's picked up at craft stores and other random places. As much as I love to sit and make people cards, I've never made her one, so I thought I'd finally make her a card. I fell in love with Amy's mermaids, and snatched up each one. When I was a kid i used to pretend and believe I was part mermaid. Splash was one of my favorite movies and I could swear I could always breathe underwater lol... funny the things we think up when we're kids huh? Anywho, since I've always had such a fondness of mermaids, after all I am one right? I thought this was too cute. I'm having a hard time sending this card off in the mail, but I made sure to take lots of pics ;) .... god I am such a dork! lol

1000 Sheets of paper!! Wow!!

Hang onto your hats and brace yourself - I'm back and posting and I'm alive!!! lol I've been away for awhile due preparations for our Wedding Reception we had in June. The planning and preparations basically took up all of my time and energy so I was MIA for awhile. Even while I was gone, I've been checking in on friends posts, so what better way to come back have my first post be about some great news that's extremely exciting to me!

On my list of the top 5 most inspiring people is Amy Young. Her constant creativity and work always leaves me in awe. I am excited to announce she is having a HUGE Blog Candy Give away like never before with tons of paper and stamps. You've just got to check this out!!

Joys of Baking

Kevin and I have taken up baking as one of our new hobbies. To keep from consuming millions of calories, we'll enjoy one thing of whatever we're baking, and the rest of the batch goes to work for my co-workers to enjoy. Tonight I made some homemade vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting. They were really good, and tasted like the fancy-shmancy cupcakes that we love from Crave Cupcakes ;)

Journal Books

My best friend Liz and I have been writing in these book/journals for years. We've maintained a long distance friendship over the past 20 years since I have a tendency to move around a lot. We write about what's been going on with our life and whatnot, to keep each other up to date on whats going on in each others lives. We decorate the book and then once we're finished writing in the book we mail them to eachother to read and keep. We make a due date of when our books will be due, so it doesn't take us forever to receive the books, and we work on it for a few weeks and then send them off in the mail. When they arrive a few days later, its really exciting to see her book, how she decorated it and then sit down and read all about what's been going on with her life. I get all the juicy details that aren't necessarily posted on facebook, myspace, twitter, or any other networking site these days so It makes me feel special, like I know parts of her life she may not always share with others. Anyway, last month I decorated the front of her book using Sweet November's Cookie Break stamp of Santa since our books were due December 15th.

This month our books were due on January 15th, and I was smart and quickly took a picture before rushing it into the package to ship it off. I wanted to make her a special twilight inspired book since I know she's seen the movies, plus I was dying to show her my TGF stamps of Flirty Edward and Camille that I got awhile back ~ I just love these! :)

Pardon the pics, but it was late and extremely dark in my kitchen when I was finishing up her book. I need to prepare more and take better pictures next time.

Thats all for now folks, I've gotta run and get some stuff done. See ya later! :)

Long time no see

It's been awhile since I've stopped in here to say Hi. We've been busy getting unpacked and settled in the new house and with the holidays come and gone, it's taken longer than anticipated. We've been busy looking into new ventures and hobbies to do together when we have free time and on top of everything else going on, We've also started planning our wedding reception, so I haven't had much time between everything going on on the home front.

Kevin and I started baking and Kevin has found he really enjoys it, and it's fun for both of us to work in the kitchen together. We've made a few things so far and keep thinking up new ideas of what to bake. We started off with recreating one of my co-workers decadent Chocolate cake that is to die for!!Then we made Mint Chocolate Brownies... I brought them to work so we wouldnt sit there and eat them all, and they were a huge hit!!

well, I'm off for now, but I just wanted to come check in and say hi to everyone! :)

Snow & Holly

Life has been so busy over here it's hard to catch up. Between work, the holidays that are quickly approaching, and just everyday life, I haven't had much time to craft and work on any cards. I've been coloring some digi stamps at work when things are slow so in hopes that when I actually have a free moment, I can put a card together. This weekend, I finally had the chance to sit down, relax and make a card. I used one of Amy's New Sweet November Stamps Holly Starshine I have a bunch of cards waiting to be made... If only I could find a way to sneak in more hours during the day :)

Let it Snow!

Hey Folks!
It's been awhile since I've had a post. Between work and trying to get settled in the new house, I've been lucky if I've had a chance to sit down and breathe. I thought I'd pop in since I was uploading photos from my camera cause we had quite an exciting day today. It actually snowed here in Houston!! Houston normally has two types of weather... Humidity & Rain... but what a delight as we had REAL snow!! It even stuck to the ground and didnt melt away :) This is a rarity so of course everyone was freaking out on the roads, but my co-workers and I had a blast with the snow. We made a few snow balls, took pictures and then they eventually closed the office early and we all got to go home! Hooray it's a snow day!
