Taking a Long Break


I will be taking a long break. There is sooo much going on here. I just drained emotionally and physically right now.

I will be posting once when I receive a Birdie Swap package. I'm so excited about it, it will be a great pick me up.

Take care...

A Taste of Spring...Inside

Morning!!! Today, I went to the kitchen sink and found a spring surprise. My poor little succulent that needs transplanting when it warms up...BLOOMED!!! It's a really sweet little flower : )

You can click on them to enlarge the photos...beware of the dead leaf-age...the poor succulent pot needs to be taken apart and totally redone. It's on the "TO DO" List!
Good news...Emma slept 5 hours last night and she is pretty much potty trained!!! No more accidents in the house, just once in a while in her crate. She has accidents in there when I go and do my errands and I stay out just a wee bit too long.
I plan to craft today : ) I hope to have something to show you soon!
Have a wonderful day everyone!!! Hugs!

A Little Spring Decorating

Morning! Sorry I've been gone so long! Emma is still keeping me busy. She is getting easier to take care of and she can now sleep 4 hours straight at night. I read some info on bulldog puppies and they need to go potty a lot! So we go out a lot!
Here she is! She's 13 weeks old now.
I've been trying to do a little stamping and a little decorating. The other day I worked on some Birdie Swap things and decided to make something for our Chicago apartment too. Here it is...

A little frame from Michael's $1 and I stamped this birdie from Friends 24-7 (Stampin' Up!) on some watercolor paper using the Black Classic Stamp Pad (Stampin' Up!). I really like it!

It looks so pretty on the mantle with the bottles that my daughter's bf gave me for Christmas.
Yesterday, I went to have my hair cut and colored : ) and while I was out I thought I'd stop at Marshall's. I'm glad I did! I found this cute little hanging bottle and hanging egg.

Oh so pretty!

Another view. I do plan on taking pictures when the weather warms up for this frame.

Not a whole lot on the agenda today. I hope you all have a great day!!!

I'm Still Here and Organizing!

Morning!!! Today is the first morning, since Emma arrived, that I don't have brain fog! Lack of sleep is no fun at all! Luckily she is cute!

Here are a couple of photos from a Valentine package that my sweet friend Angie at Sandals and Daisies sent me! Everything is so sweet and cute! She made me this darling hanging heart, on the back it has my name.

Very cute with some vintage or vintage looking flowers attached.

She sent me some yummy chocolates and a pretty card and also a cute little love bug pin. I love it all...thank you sooo much Angie!!!! (Click to enlarge)

While Emma has been napping, I have been trying to organize some things for my stamp/craft room. I found these sock organizer containers at Target (my favorite store!). I have a feeling that IKEA would have something like this and probably cheaper but the nearest IKEA is over an hour away.

Ribbon, all organized.

Vintage ribbons and bindings, newer ribbon and some scraps. It feels so good to have these all organized.
Today, I feel like I've been really productive : ) One load of laundry done, dishes done, ribbon organized, floor on to vacuuming and dusting. Fun, fun, fun!!! I even brought some stamps downstairs to work on my birdie swap. Now that will be fun! I only hope I actually have time to start it!
Have a wonderful day!!! Hugs!!! I have missed you!
