My Shining Star

he makes me happy :D

i made this for him to hang up in his room. i am going to attach yarn to the back of it so he can hang it on a tack. it will definitely stand out in his little montage he has going on. and hopefully it will be a reminder to him every day that i love him so much!!

the border is hand drawn, i did it while i was on the phone w/ him earlier tonight :D

thanks for sharing in my joy for the day ;)

mini book mania!!

i've been working on these for like, ever at this point... finally tired of trying to think of stuff to put in 'em and get 'em off my desk.

these started out as chunky 3" x 3" board books, sanded down and covered, then filled with junk including pics, paint chips, vellum envelopes, stickers, acrylic frames... lots to look at!!

i made one for each of my 3 nieces / nephew... their mom has a really cool shelf in her house that these would look GREAT on....

anyway, i'm pleased w/ these!! thanks for looking ;)

seriously, this is probably going to be the funniest movie out all year... unless Seth Rogen has something else coming out... something to look up on imDb... anyway.

omg, i nearly peed myself watching the commercial for this movie the first time. i am going to start laughing like that all the time.... my new favorite <3

without further adieu, the shark part from "Strange Wilderness"... lmfao.

Christmas in January.

ok, so i'm scrapping Christmas now. or just this one anyway :D had to use up some of the goodies from my Dec. Mosh-Posh kit. as you can tell, i'm not a HUGE fan of the "shabby chic" look, so this page was a bit of a challenge for me... not sure i really like how it turned out but oh well it's together and going in the book! Thanks for looking :D
