A Week Before Christmas

Its been a long while since i've blogged.
My kids celebrated their birthdays! We took them bowling for the first time and they loved it! Even though they we're both battling colds and whatnot :(
Its been a long 3 weeks with each of the kids getting sick twice and then finally i got sick too. But luckily everyone is all better now, just in time for Christmas.
I made a few Christmas cards that i wanted to share with you.
These are all made with Echo Park Papers.
First 3 are with EP Mini Themes "Happy Holidays"

This last one is used with EP "Very Merry Christmas"
Can you tell i'm a big fan of Echo Park Papers ? ;) lol
Just wanted to show a pic of my kids birthday celebration.
I just wanted to thank you all for visiting my little blog and for leaving sweet messages for me! I really appreciate each and every one of you.
I wish you all Happy and safe holiday season!
thank you for stopping by!
P.S> I also have an addiction/  a love for washi tape!
 I'm waiting on some washi tapes to arrive and i hope to do a giveaway soon! So stay tuned =D

November it is!

Wow, can't believe its November already!
Well actually i can because the RAIN is here :P
In the Pacific Northwest, we typically get mostly rain for our winter months. We will get the occasional snowfall and then everyone panics and it gets crazy! haha
It's been a busy few weeks for me.
I know you are supposed to go to the dentist every 6 months, but i haven't been. My excuse was that life got in the way.
Or at least until my tooth began to hurt, which then prompted me to head to the dentist ASAP! Turns out i needed a root canal ;P
Let's say it was not as painfully as i heard =)
Anyways, the lesson to be learned here is to visit your dentist every 6 months!!!
My kids got their check-up/cleaning 2 days after Halloween and they were both cavity free! Yay!
Heres a pic of my boy as Mario!
He loved his costume! We got it 2 weeks before Halloween and he wore it everyday! hahaha
On a serious note. Tomorrow i go for a FNA. ( fine needle aspiration).
I found a lump on my throat and the drs think its an enlarged thyroid gland. We've done lots of blood work but tomorrow they want to get a sample.
I'm nervous and scared, but mostly just want to get it over with and find out what this lump is. Pray that its nothing.
My little brother is getting married this weekend. Unfortunately we won't be able to attend as the wedding is in Thailand. Can't wait to see pictures =)
Next up,
Planning to go Black Friday shopping as hubby has the day off! Yay.
Planning my kids birthday party.. thinking of bowling ?!
Plans for Christmas, slowly making a list of gifts for the family.
Thanks for stopping by and reading all this.
I made a few Christmas cards already, will show on the next post!

Happy Halloween!!

Hello everyone! Happy Halloween!!!
Anyone dressing up today?? I'd love to see your costumes =)
My little ones are going as SpiderGirl and Super Mario... I will post pictures later today.
Their class has invited family and friends to attend their Halloween Party. I'm going to bring my camera to take videos and pictures of them singing and reciting poems.
Here is a photo of the Halloween treats for their classmates.
A BIG hello and welcome to my new and regular followers! Thank you all for stopping by.
I'm hoping to post more often, unfortunately i'm dealing with some
medical issues at the moment. I'm usually not a praying person, but if you could say
a little prayer for me, i'd appreciate it =D

A crafty kind of day!

So my kids are home today as they have Pro-D Day. On top of that they are both under the weather. =(  Needless to say i didn't sleep much last night, running back and forth to their rooms. Today they seem a bit better, so we decided to do some crafts.
We're still in the midst of stamping goodie bags for their classmates. I will post when those are done and stuffed with treats! =)
We started on Halloween cards for their teachers. ( Do people make Halloween cards or usually not? )
I found this Halloween Mat Stack by DCWV.
and we made these two cards.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

 I made this " hello" banner for my daughters room. Using Echo Park Papers from the Hello Summer Collection. I used the cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes to cut out the circles and the fonts.

This is the card that i entered into the EP stripes and dots contest that happened a few months ago. Which was chosen as 1 of 5 winners and i received the "Hello Summer" colelction as my prize!

Is everyone enjoying the Olympics? My kids get so excited when they see Canada/ maple leaf on t.v!!

Go Canada Go!!!

Happy June!

I can't believe its June already!

Some highlights of this month.
- My DD finishes kindergarten =)
- my birthday
- Fathers day ( which happens to fall on the same day as my b-day)

My goal this month is to stop buying scrapbooking supplies!  So far, so good ;)
I'm pretty sure i have most everything i need, i just have to start creating again.
What do you do to get back into the groove? so to speak.

I hope everyone is enjoying the spring/ summer-like weather.
We're still in the sunny one day and then rainy the next. =P

So i totally forgot all of January! Oops! Probably wasn't all that interesting anyways.. haha
All i remember was that it was COLD and we actually got some snow.
Anyways, as we are on to February now and tomorrow is Valentines Day.
I thought i'd show you some Valentines lovelies the kids made!

Below are the Valentines tags that are going to be given out at my daughters Valentines Day party..
I used the cricut to cut out the hearts, the stamps are from Studio G. And i added some twine to attach the pencil.

Above are 2 cards cut out from the cricut cartridge  Spring Holiday Cards.
These are from the kids to their daddy!
