Too cute dirt dessert

I made this dessert for my nephews b-day party for all the kids. I was super excited and had lots of fun shopping and making these. My next project will be for the kids V-day treats...can't wait to get started!

I did it!

Yesterday for my 2-hour wait while Marisa was at Cheer practice, I sat in the snack area and worked on my new project. I bought a Spiderman pillow kit to make for Ben for his birthday. I thought it was going to be hard to do but...
Funny thing was, it wasn't difficult at all. I had so much fun doing this! Towards the very end, it started getting difficult for me to tie the knots, but here it is! And Jillee is sad cause she wants a pillow too. So I think I'll head on out to Joanns and get started on hers!

Here is Ben with his new pillow...Jillee too:o)

Ben and his favorite 'outfit'

This is my Ben, who just turned 3, in his favorite outfit. I cannot get him to wear anything else! When we are leaving the house in the middle of a snow storm, we have to compromise. We tell him, put these warm clothes on now, then when you get home you can put your soccer clothes back on. He agrees, and I am telling you as soon as we walk thru the door he is stripping asking "Where is my outfit".

I have a new system. When we leave the house, the clothes go in the washer, then in the dryer when we get home. HE is patient enough to wait until they get dried, but he is asking the whole time...Is my outfit done yet?!

They are so funny at this age! I asked him what he's gonna do when these clothes don't fit him anymore. He just looked at me and said "MOM...they fit fine!" Hopefully they have this in an adult large?!

Scrap Happy

I must say, I am totally in love with my cricut! I know I have not even scratched th surface on what it can do, but I am having so much fun playing! I cannot wait to learn more. I am waiting for my design studio to come in the mail, and my 'Your Story' laminator is scheduled to be here on the 11th. Got any projects??? BRING THEM ON! I love, love, love scrapping!
Here are a few things I've played with so far:


Marisa and her friend Morgan wanted to try our new Paper Dolls cartridge.


These are coasters I made for a babyshower. The back has some facts about the mom to be:o)

New Year Resolutions...

Happy New Yeaar! I hope this year brings lots of joy, peace and happiness. I do not make resolutions for my new years, mainly because most never stick, and I just do not like starting my year out as a failure! I do however, take the time to pray over the new year. I am dedicating my year to the Lord. Whatever he has 'resolved' for my journey to be this year I am looking forward to. I am already blessed with a wonderful family and friends. I was feeling exremely blessed New Year's Day. There was a huge snow storm brewing outside. I was in my kitchen cricutting all day while my pork dinner was cooking in the roaster. My whole family was lounging, watching loony toons and snoozing all day. It was such a peaceful cozy atmosphere. I was feeling so blessed to have a home that could shelter such a warm cozy day when it was so blustery outside. I love how my year has started out already, and I am anxious to see what the year will bring. With God in the drivers seat, and My wonderful hubby and kids standing by my side, it's gonna be a gr8 and wonderful adventure.
I am praying for the very same for all of you:o)
