Pinterest Projects

As you guys know, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pinterest. I needed a simple project to use as a gift card holder and this project was just perfect! My kids like to give a little something to just about everyone at their school. So, I got a lot of Sonic gift cards and let them give to whoever they want. Their favorites seem to be, the music teacher, the art teacher, the nurse, just to name a few. I had each kid sign a note and slip it inside the glycerin bags stamped Merry Christmas. I only used paper and ribbon from my scrap box, nothing new purchased! Had fun doing it!! Hugs

Giving Thanks

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! We celebrated Roman's birthday on friday at CEC and he had a blast!!! He is such a sweet boy. Then the whole family watched U of H beat SMU. We are ranked #6 in the nation now!!! We are going to Saturday's game against So. Miss. Sunday, we left for the beach. We stayed for 4 days and YES the kids actually swam!!!! It was 83 degrees!!!

Loved being able to spend Thanksgiving with my sweet mom, my brother and his 3 kids and Veronica. So happy that we all live so close to each other now. Thankful :)

Halloween At My House....Spooky Fun!

Just thought I would post a few pics of my house decorated for Halloween. My kids really got into it this year. The orange lanterns on the stairs are taken out on halloween night and hung from our trees. It was nice to have them ready to go. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. How can you not love all of that orange and black :) Hugs

My little girl is 10.....Shut Up!!!

OMG, I mean really, double digits!! My girl?? No way. She is soooo sweet but growing up WAY to fast. She has been the joy of our lives for 10 years. It has been so much fun and never a dull moment!! She wanted a Halloween themed Birthday Party so we had a little mini party at the house and then hopped in the car and headed for Fun Tiki and some Go Cart fun!!! She invited her cute friends Natalie and Alexa from soccer. They are speed demons in those carts!!!! We had so much fun. Enjoy the Pics!!

An Artful Extravaganza

An extravaganza of the senses!! I travelled to Utah with 2 of my best friends, Christa and Keely. We headed of for some great shopping as soon as our wheels touched the tarmac. Then off to dinner at Sundance with Penelope, Keely's friend. A great meal, good friends and a little wine :)

We woke up to a beautiful day and we were ready to create!! And create we did. Margie is just AMAZING and she put together a wonderful event in which every single thing was thought of down to the last detail. She surrounded herself with very talented and amazing people work so hard. And believe me, you could see the love and all that hard work from the second you arrived. We had music, laughter and everything was just so visually stimulating. How could you not feel creative in such a place!!

I love, LOVE, LOVED the teachers!!! I mean, I sewed for God sake, and TOTALLY ROCKED IT!!! Loved the SHE canvas class so much....it was really freeing to let go and just paint!!! Made a cute necklace, felted soap, carved a stamp and made a junk journal. Still wearing my cute pair of earrings. Enjoyed meeting every single teacher, sooooo talented!!

The event size was small and it was just the best. Visiting with the other girls attending, chatting with the teachers, sharing personal stories, just being able to catch Margie in the hall for a hug. Just priceless. I never had to race for a seat or be the first in line for anything. I could just ease on through, really enjoying the moment.

I plan to be there next year and I hope to see all of you there again. Hugs

Pinterest Fun

Hi, I'm Timi and I'm addicted to Pinterest. I LOVE to pin and pin and add new boards. I love to see what my friends are pinning and what their loves and interests are. Well, today I finally pulled up my boards and made something!!! I am so happy that these boards really are my inspiration to try something new. It was easy and fun.

So, my kids are forever leaving their junk on the back stairs. ALL OVER THE STAIRS. Someone pinned a picture of cute baskets that they had placed on their own stairs for their children to carry upstairs at night and put their thing away. She put name tags on them and they were just so stinking cute. So here are a few pictures of my version. Roman said "mom, you are the best artist I have ever seen". The sweetest boy ever!!!!! Hugs
