Future Prima Ballerina - January 2011

I was out shopping and saw these cute zebra stripe ballet slippers. Early in the month we found this ballerina tutu at a store and got it for her, she has been in it ever since. So when I came home with the slippers she was super excited.
I love that smile!!!!
She asked if she could dance to some "ballerina music"...which is Pachelbel Cannon in D.....she actually has a little bit of coordination.
Dancing Queen!!

Stampin' Up! Swap - January 2011

Here are the goodies that I created for this months swap. Our theme was Valentine's Day, it was a lot of fun. This box has a Ghiardelli's chocolates, mint patties, rectangle acetate box filled with Tootsie Rolls, a note book for love notes and a matching pen.
This is a mini post note holder that can be put on a keyring or purse. I love the Owl punch!!
This is a Valentine box with valentines and matching envelopes. I love the envelope die that goes with the Big Shot.
Our group used the shaving cream technique in our challenge for he month, this is how mine turned out. I love using glue and glitter, it so easy and add lots of sparkle.

Stampin' Up! Swaps - December 2010

I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I have the opportunity to be part of a monthly Swap Group. I like the opportunity to be creative every month. If I didn't have this group I am not sure that I would take the time other wise. Here are the items I created in December. I had a lot of fun.

This is a gift card holder, I love the glitter brads.....does anyone else get excited over things like this?
One of my favorite dies for the Big Shot is the Top Note Die....I heat embossed the sentiment in silver, embossing always adds a little style.
I found this idea and though it looked so delicate that I wanted to recreate it. I really like the color combination, it feels so sweet. The mini pearls are so beautiful to me.

More Snow! - January 12, 2011

Here is Buddy belly deep in snow. Even though it was a challenging she still loved playing in the slow with Abby.
Buddy kept on sinking in the snow and then he would have himself a little bite of snow as a snack for his trouble. Tastes good and refreshing.
Here we are trying to clear off Daddy's car. This is after the blizzard that hit us a bit ago. Abby likes helping clear the snow and we found another use for her sand shovel!! It makes a good snow shovel too. I am learning how to efficently shovel snow, something that I never had to do in SC, GA, CA or UT for that fact.

Trip to the store with Daddy - December 31, 2010

Abby wanted to go to the store with daddy but he need to go fast, she was dressing in her Fairy outfit so Andrew put a jacket on her, gloves and hat and off they went. He said that they had a few looks in the store but Abby had fun and that is all that matters.

Snow Day - December 28th, 2010

Abby had fun "pulling" me around the yard in the snow. She loves the snow!!! And we are getting a lot of it here in CT. This is like 20x more snow on the ground now.
Buddy was getting in on the fun too! I was surprised to see that likes the snow too.
We tried to build Abby a little sledding hill for her to slide down, she had so much fun climbing and trying to build a snowman, didn't quite turn out.

More Christmas Pics - December 2010

Here are our families little cuties. Daddy with our babies. We made family shirts for Christmas and wore them in on Christmas Eve.
Daddy bought these blocks for Abby, he had them growing up and thought Abby would love them. Well he was right. She loves them. She uses the small round long block as a bone to fetch as she pretends to be a dog crawling around the house.
She is so excited for Christmas morning. She really loves the lights on the tree and the Christmas star on top. And decorating the tree was so fun for us to do together.
