Oh Snap!

I feel like I haven't posted in so long, but I have been busy in a very good way....I went on a sb'ing retreat to Pennsylvania with a great group of ladies! It was a 13 hour drive, and as gorgeous as the mountains were...I found them difficult to drive through. Especially with semi's in front, behind, and beside me! We had a great time and I'm looking forward to our next retreat already!

I needed to make a card for my neice who's turning 10 and I bought this Greeting Farm Stamp with her in mind, I think it's so cute!

When making this card I got out my mini-stapler from Tim Holtz and I was stapling away when I thought to myself, "I bet Donna would staple some mouths for her Macabre Monday Challenge with this!" I know it sounds kinda creepy, but she really would! LOL!

Decorations for Nico's Grad Party

Again, I've been busy! Actually I've created all this busyness for myself by making a boatload of decorations for Nico's party. He loves them all and actually thanked me for doing all that I've done so far...see, that's why I've done this for him, 'cuz he's such a great guy! He's got to be...look what he has to put up with...a paper doll that looks like him and his mom taking pictures of it! LOL!

Here's the finished graduation centerpiece I started making while I was in the Dells in April on a sb'ing weekend with some good friends.

I started this banner in the Dells too, but little did I know that when I started making it that it would be 12 feet long....too long to get a good picture, but trust me when I say that it looks awesome hanging in the kitchen!

Lastly, this was my favorite thing to make for the party....60 little pins, one for each party goer! Now, you may be asking why I would make these and you could also be thinking that I might be embarrasing my son, but the answer is simple...there is a group on Facebook and the group is aptly named: I Love Nico. It was started by one of his friends and it is just plain silly...just like everyone being forced to wear an I LOVE NICO pin! Go ahead and join his group, let him feel the love!

His party is in 2 days and I have a lot to do before it begins...busy, busy, busy!
