Spa Day


This is a Spa Day Gift set that is headed it's way to Canada! It includes Soap, Salts, Essential Oils, Candles, and a Washing Mitt (not pictured).

I have one additional item to add to the package, but I'll give you more information on that tomorrow (because it's just not finished).

This was a busy weekend. Yesterday, I caught up with my dear friend, Ann, and her family. I just love spending time with her. I don't know how to describe her, except to say that she makes me smile and laugh at so many struggles that we, as mothers and women, struggle with. My kids are all adults, but her kids are still quite young. To spend time with her, her husband (what a great guy!), and her children (her daughter, Eva, is just simply delightful, and her son, Drew, such a little prince) is like taking my life and putting it in rewind, but adding in bright sunshine and posies.

Ann and I participated in an awareness, fund raising walk for brain cancer awareness, because of our friend, Jami, who unfortunately succumbed on Friday. After the walk, I went back to their house and was introduced to Wii Fit by Eva, who beat me running around the island and demonstrated several yoga poses to me.

Then Ann showed me some of Drew's and Eva's artwork that she framed. It is so amazing to look at art created by children and see their uninhibited, raw creativity!


Today was my husband's 50th birthday. His parents came over and we had rib-eye steak, rosemary and garlic potatoes, and salad. And since my old man is watching his weight (like he needs to!), we had Jack's special low fat, high fiber, muffins topped with cream cheese frosting for his birthday cake!

You're a great friend, Rebecca. What nice things you said about me and my family. I couldn't help bragging about what an amazing artist and creative bee you are to all who would listen. My big brained friend (yes, she is MY friend and I'm proud of it) made some great looking spa items. Did you burn the midnight oil on Saturday? The bran muffins looked yummy (I hope they do the trick, wink wink) and that Dave doesn't feel a day over 49! Let's do lunch and so I can return your camera AND socks. I'll wash them before I see you again -- promise. :-) I'm a big fan of the blog and I'm looking forward to Wednesday. Don't forget to send me the link!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
