Adding some vintage goodies...

slowly into my etsy store. Added three today but one has already been sold! Decided that my stash is COMPLETELY overflowing and I thought of how much fun it would be to put together some little kits and offer them! I love a good treasure hunt and have added together some vintage-y and not soo vintage papers, embellishments that hopefully spark some creativity in you! How bout a sneaky of what is in store??

You can find them here.....IN MY ETSY STORE.

i am going to continue adding to my store with more AWESOME treasures and vintage kits to bookmark it and check back soon!

This layout of Kamryn and her daddy is now my most fave layout. I want to have it framed and put up in my bedroom to admire every night. I have become infatuated with anything tan, brown, sepia and then one bolder brighter color. See if you feel the same as I do.....pictures are very powerful! I will cherish that moment caught on film for eternity!

A couple Sneak Peeks of the Sept Kit!

over at TREASURED SCRAPBOOKING!! I love this kit!!

School for the kids is going GREAT! Averee even wants to go to school on saturday and Sunday, which is a good sign! Bman is your typical boy, take it or leave it, he says. The homework is the not so fun part!

Wish that I had something else interesting to post but for now, that is all!

1st day of school....

has come and gone and we survived and Mommy didn't get too awful upset with the fact that Averee will now be gone all day long at Kindergarten. snapped 60 pictures in 15 minutes. Do believe that is a new record for me....he he he!

On the flip side of real everyday life, I haven't been able to scrap a whole lot but I am starting toget back into the swing of things now that school is in session!

Last two creations are made using the August kit from Treasured Scrapbooking !

and if you had not noticed, Averee officially graduated to the 'big girl' haircut. She has wanted to get it cut shorter, so I finally caved and I am sooooo glad that I did!! she looks much older, skinnier, and even taller!

There's never enough time in the day....

never ever. I can never get done what I want to get done in one day. Seems like this happens to me every single day. Maybe if I just take off the super speed shoes and relax once in awhile, and try not to worry that everything is not getting done, I will feel a lot better about it not getting done. I think I just lost myself in my own coversation.
Lots of different emotions and thoughts running thru my head this week and I must say they are all not good. Won't bore you with any details but let's just say this has not been a stellar week for me. Nuff said.
Officially now 12 more days till school starts. 12 more days before I bawl and whine and cry like a little baby when Averee goes to Kindergarten. I know for sure that even tho Bman says he doesn't want to go back to school, once he is there, it will be all good for him. Soo much to do before they go back, too...and next week starts bedtime routine....WISH ME LUCK ON THAT ONE.
Just one very PRECIOUS picture to share with you today...it's a pic of the new and up and coming KINDERGARTENER Averee!

I can't tell ya how much I am going to miss that face during the day, how much I will miss how she plays with her little sister and helps out in WHATEVER I want her to do. I can't even type anymore about it cuz it is making me all teary eyed.

It's almost gone....

summer that is. We have a very limited amount of time left before our kids are nose deep in books and reading and friends and everyday school life. I seriously have a hard time fathoming where in the heck this summer went???? Really??? Seems like just last week they were anxiously awaiting the last day of school and camping. Instead we dealt with the flooding and the aftermath and the business and the camping and the birthdays and now the birth of a new family member, our new neice HANNAH!!

My kiddies are completely smitten with her and can't stop talking about how cute she is and how they can't wait till she comes home! Frankly, I can't wait either!
On the creating side of things, I have been busy! I just finished up altering a white plastic picket fence and 'girlied' it up!

Most of the goodies used you can find at SCRAPLOVE.COM'S store!
Also been experimenting and toying with a folded up book that I am using as my art journal. Truly therapy for me...it ws messy and fun and ewwwy gluey to create! I got the idea from a class that Gigi Kennedy was teaching in a scrappy event in Tennessee. This girl BLOWS MY MIND with her creativity!! I am nowhere near done, but here are some of the pics of what I have so far. I am just loving the whole process....
