It's a holiday weekend, SO you know what that means...

We are SICK. Annabelle and Beckett are both running fevers. Beckett's started in the wee hours of Thursday morning and Annabelle's started last night. We ran out of Tylenol last night and I had to brave the elements (it was a blizzard here yesterday - 8 inches of snow) to go to Wal-mart for a thermometer and some children's Tylenol and Motrin. For those of you who have been with me since the begining you know that it is our joke here that it isn't a holiday without a trip to the urgent care. Someone from our house is sick on every holiday. We are supposed to be traveling to my parents tomorrow for Easter but those plans are up in the air until we figure out how sick we all are. Sucks since this year instead of the traditional Easter dinner the plan is to have Lobster and Prime Rib. I'm crossing my fingers (but not holding my breath) that everyone is feeling better tomorrow. I hope you all have a wonderful day and a Happy Easter! Thanks for stopping by!

ElyBlair - please send me an email with your snail mail addy so I can get these sent out to you.

We are in for a LONG weekend here. Beckett has been running a high fever for the last 24 hours with no end in site. As you have "heard" me say before...It isn't a holiday without one of us heading to the urgent care. To top things off we are getting 5-8 inches of snow today.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter!!!

Easter Treats

I found a little time yesterday to whip together some Easter treats. The basket bottoms are cut out of dp using my Cricut and I just cut a strip and added a handle. The little tins are from the wedding favor section at Michael's. I filled them with bunny/duck shaped sweet tarts. The stamps used were from a retired TAC stamp set (sorry, don't know the name). Bunnies and chicks were colored using prismacolor pencils and gamsol. As usual, I couldn't finish a project without a little glitter so the bunnies and eggs are covered in dazzling diamonds! Hope you all have a Happy Easter!

Don't forget to sign up for my blog candy drawing by leaving a comment here. Drawing will be held on Friday!

Time for some BLOG CANDY!!!

Sunday nights always totally bum me out. I had so many things that I needed and wanted to get done this weekend and now that the weekend is almost over the # of items crossed off my to-do list is ZERO. I NEEDED to get some housework done...nope. I WANTED to get some stamping done...nope. I NEEDED to get some good rest...nope. I am also suffering from the "WINTER IN WI IS TOO LONG" blues. The weather has been nicer the past few days but not nice enough. I NEED spring to get here ASAP! The one positive thing about the weekend is that I saw a robin today...a sure sign that spring is almost here! To celebrate this first robin of the year siting I have some blog candy to give away: some super cool glitter rub-ons (they go on like regular rub-ons and then you add whatever color glitter you like-totally cool), some metallic red chord and a clear holiday stamp set from Autumn Leaves. To be entered to win all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite color combo to use scrapping or stamping. I will draw a name from all the entries on Friday morning. Have a TERRIFIC week!!!

*Blogger with a cause*

My friend Lynn has a post on her blog about a 3 year old family friend that was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. Lynn is taking donations of handmade items that will help raise money for the family and for the hospital where 3 year old Lyndsey is getting treatment. These items will be used for a raffle/silent auction at a future fund raiser. Lynn is also donating money through her Fashion Flips business. Please visit Lynn's blog "Just Monkin' Around" for more details. As a parent of a 3 and 4 year old I can't imagine what this family is going through. I am working on making a couple items that I will be sending her way. If you have the time to make a little something please consider this, it is definitely going to a good cause!
