Card Candy

Oh boy! I joined this card candy swap and I had never done card candy before! Yikes! What was I thinking. Anyway, I knew I wouldn't be able to relax about it until I had it done. You can't tell from the picture but a few of the items are pop-dotted.

Hang In There

Another card using my new stamp set. I'm loving these squirrels!!!!

Post-it-note holder

These are some post-it-note holders I made. They were super easy and super fast. I just took a 4x4 coaster and glues a piece of patter paper to it. Then took the post-it-note pad and clipped it with the clip thing. Tied on some ribbon and clipped on a pen and voila! Easy peasy!

Birthday Accordion Book

This book was given to me by my secret sister over at the Stamp Shack. I decided to make it into a birthday book!!! I think it turned out pretty cute. I like how bright and cheery it is.

How I store my ribbon

This was a topic over at the Stamp Shack so I thought I'd just show you all too. Please excuse the mess though! I LOVE ribbon! I don't think you can ever have to much!!!

These are stackable containers that I got on clearance at Garden Ridge for a buck a piece. I should of bought more, but my brain wasn't working that day!!!They have a slot on each side for the ribbon the slide out.

Once I ran out of room in the clear stackables I bought some wooden rods and just stuff them on there and they are sitting on a shelf. I need a better place for them though.

This is all my ribbon I get from swaps and such. I have it all in a basket. It is very messy and I just dig through it when I'm looking for ribbon, which makes it even messier. I need a better way!

This was my first ribbon storage. I filled up very fast though!

Pictures from our Ozark vacation

Welch Spring and Historical Hospital. The building you see is only one wall of an old hospital. It was built by this spring because it was believed the water had medical qualities.

This is us canoeing the Current River.

Alley Mill; it produces 81 million gallons of water a day!

Alley Mill Spring. It's so pretty, crystal clear and blue!The water temp is about 48 in this spring.

Alley Mill; this is one of the spots the where the water flows from the spring.

This is just a roadside picture. The view was beautiful!

We went to the Ozarks for vacation. The ones that are in Missouri. It's such a beautiful place to visit. So relaxing and so much to see.
