Life is Sweet.....Enjoy!!!

Just another quick post....another card I did for P K Glitz! I used some more Glitter Pearls...I've decided, I really like them!! I wanted the strawberry lemonade to look more real. Not just flat so I used some Helmar glue which I smeared onto the jar...I think it kinda looks wet and has some movement.

I love the look of the quilted background and wish I had quilted it some more....How happy would it be to be sipping some Strawberry Lemonade right now out of a mason jar with a sprig of mint??!! I found a yummy recipe I wanted to try....just look at this deliciousness from Life's Ambrosia YUM!!! Doesn't it just make you want to have some ??

Hard to believe school is back on in just 3 weeks!! Working on a couple of cute back to school items and a few things for the etsy shop. Is there ever enough time??!! I vow to see a Beach before school starts again! I think a trip to Lake Tahoe is a must do...
Are you having some fun this summer!!? Does it seem to be whizzing by???

Just Popping in to say HI!!

Wow! I just popped in to say "HI"....I made this card using the Glitter Pearls from P K Glitz. If you haven't tried this stuff its BEAUTIFUL! Truly YUMMY!!! Pop over there for all the details!

Its been a busy week and hard to believe summer will be over in less than a month...
After the Girls got out of Vacation Bible School we went to the pool and I played water football with the Boys.....Two days later, I think my arms almost fell off from being so sore. I can't keep up with 24 years olds...what the heck was I thinking??? The oldest called to check on me the next day....he says "Mom, are you sore today?" I said "a little" he said..."Wow, I am!!!!" hmmmmmm....maybe I can keep up! =:O)
The Girls are still sleeping so I'm trying to figure out something fun to do today. I really want to go to the u pick farms and pick fruits (Im feeling a jam and pie making day coming on) or maybe the Garlic Festival?! I have an almost finished layout sitting on my desk, so Since Honey is going to work for a couple of hours this morning, I'm going to finish it and then close up shop for the day. What are your plans for the weekend? Hope you have something fun to do!!

It's P K Glitz Sketch Challenge Time!!!

Time for this months sketch challenges over at P K Glitz and by playing along you could be a Guest Designer for September! Here are the sketches...

This month I played along and here is my take on the sketch....I switched it...putting the journaling where the picture goes and the picture where the journaling goes...that's the fun part about sketches...they are your interpretation and creative starters for you to just get going!!! Now, I can't really let you read this journaling because its a note to the newest Graduate in the family and if I let you read it....well...(I know you thought I was going to say...I'd have to Kill you...and I thought about it for a second!)..but really its because he'd probably be embarrassed and while I like to embarrass him sometimes..this was a little personal for even me to share....Sorry....Just know this...He's come along way!!! =:O)

So...why don't you Play along this month and go link up!!??!!
Its been pretty hot around here the last couple of days. The weather is and breezy and then the next day, hot and sticky....I've been working on getting some things done to put in my store....but it sure is slow going with me. I feel guilty being in here during the day when the Kids want to be going and doing something and then am tired in the evening and want to just hang out...then when I go to head is full of ideas and things to do and things I should have's hard to sleep...Does that happen to you? Mind racing at midnight, full of ideas and plans...just when you want to be enjoying your coveted slumber??
Well, Im off to try to bring on sweet dreams...Hope you've been having a great week!!

Get your Bark on!

I'm quite certain my Girls like going to the Dog Park just as much, if not more, than the Dogs do!! Its so entertaining to watch them and all the Dogs run around meeting new "friends"...I'm certain you can't be there without finding your smile.

I made the glitter strip using Wonder Film from P K Glitz. I think I just might Love that product!!
I've also been working on some festive little scalloped buntings and some other little goodies that I hope to have up in my shop by the end of the weekend! Here's a little peek...

Very Fun!!! I've decided I love sewing, its almost calming in a way. I'm not certain I could create clothes just yet but small happy things....I can handle!
What have you been working on?
