So Happy!

A couple of weeks ago I received an unexpected email from a very sweet lady. I have been dying to share the news and now I finally can!

I woke up today and was surfing my favorite blogs, when I saw that my guest design spot at one of my favorite manufacturers was posted today! I am so stinking happy! I LOVE their products! If you would like to see the post, hop on over to the Sassafras blog here.

Happy Monday everyone!

I Can Finally Breathe!

Before I started talking about the goings on at my home, make sure you check out the newest kit from Noel Mignon. It is packed full of goodies! I just got mine in the mail yesterday and already had to dive into it!



The past couple of weeks have been chaotic around here. Two birthday parties back to back and home improvement stuff going on at the same time equals one stressed out mama! Thankfully the parties are all over and most of the big home improvement stuff is complete. Now I can focus on the minor details and get back to scrapping. It's been awhile since I have shared a page!

Before I leave you today. Here is my oldest. She turned 6 this past week and had an ice cream birthday party. It was a big hit!

Noel Mignon Blog Hop!

Welcome to the April Kit Sneak peek Blog hop! This will be a two day event, so be sure to join us both Saturday and Sunday to join in on all the fun.

This is more than just a fun way to get a bunch of sneaks all in one weekend, we have also turned it into a fun game! For April, we are revealing the name of the kit through jumbled letters (this is a 3 word name, with 11 total letters). The first stop on the hop is the NoelMignon LO/Project blog. So if you are stopping here first, please head back over there and start over to be sure you collect all the letters. http://noelmignonlayouts.blogspot.com/ . Also, be sure to leave comments along the blog route, as there will be one lucky winner of a $10 discount pulled from all the comments left along the way. We are going to pull the winner from ONE blog, but that blog is a "mystery", so be thorough, and leave comments on every blog so you don't miss out!

The kit goes up for sale bright and early Monday morning! There will be a full reveal and kits will start shipping that very day! Get your order in early, as this one has the lines that have been getting a lot of attention since they debuted at CHA, and it won't last long!



Next on the hop is Virginia Tillery!

Have a great Saturday!

Gearing up for the next one!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Tomorrow is St. Patty's Day! The girls and I are going to do something special tomorrow but I am not sure just what yet. Maybe something crafty along with various green foods. I need to figure it out tonight since it's tomorrow. LOL!

I have some good news to share! I made it for another term with the GCD Studios Design Team! Yay! Last term I was on the Facebook Team but this term I am on the blog team. I am so stinking excited about it! I am going to miss the other girls though. All of them are so talented and inspiring! I look forward to getting to know the new ladies and see what talents they bring to the team. :)

Catching Up...

I don't think I mentioned earlier, but I was the guest artist for Pink Paislee a couple of weeks ago. It was one of my dreams come true! Love that company! You can see my work for it here.

Jaina's birthday party was Saturday. After stressing out the day before, trying to get everything done, everything turned out perfect! Her theme was a tea party complete with mini cheesecakes, mini cupcakes, mini brownies, mini eclairs, and cake balls.


Of course, we can't forget the birthday cake! I had my mom make it this year. I normally bake their cakes but I was overwhelmed with all the other baking stuffs. My mom did an awesome job with the German Black Forest Cake! Jaina ended up being super shy when everyone sang her happy birthday. Poor thing didn't know what to do with herself.




Next week is Aryanna's birthday party. Yes. Both of my girls are March babies which means we get to have back to back parties. I kind of like it. Makes for a fun month!

Happy Thursday everyone!

2 Years Ago Today...

Little Jaina was born. She was 3 weeks early and ready to be born. She was a feisty eater and very timid. She smiled and laughed a lot when her sister played with her.
2009

At 1, she was a cautious walker. She always had to hold onto your hand whenever she had to take a step up or step down from anything. She loved to watch her sister and looked up to her.

2010

Now that she is 2, her own little personality is starting to emerge. She pretty much mimics everything Aryanna does and sometimes it drives her big sister crazy. She is starting to talk and can already form a few simple sentences. Her favorite word is cupcakes. I love it when she holds a conversation with you because her facial expressions are so cute they are to die for! Her favorite foods are strawberries, blueberries, and chocolate.

2011


Happy Birthday Jaina! I love you with all my heart all the way to the moon and back!

One Crazy Week

This past week has been crazy! I feel like I've been running around like a mad woman! Saturday I went on a trip to IKEA and bought Aryanna's first big girl bed. She has outgrown her toddler bed. Besides that, Jaina has outgrown her crib and needs a bed, hence the furniture trip. I also got them a new dresser since the other dresser is way too small for the both of them. The new one is a LOT bigger. Here are the two new additions...



I mainly chose this bed since it has two large drawers underneath. Perfect to store toys and blankets. I am also painting the girls' room pink. It's been white all these years and it's time for a change. I hope I like it. I've never lived in a house with colored walls! I am trying to get all this done before Saturday. Why do you ask? Well it's because....


On Thursday my little baby turns 2! I can't believe it! Time flies WAY too fast! Along side getting the girls room finished, I am working on birthday decorations. Later this week I'll be baking like crazy. I love baking so that's ok. The theme this year is a Hello Kitty Tea Party. I hope it turns out the way I am picturing it. I'll post pictures of the party later next week.

I am off to work. I'll leave you with one of my most recent layouts.
