Manic Monday

Yup, we are a bit nutty here. Getting ready for a visit from Grandma and Grandpa. So this weekend was spent cleaning, doing laundry, more cleaning. Oh and we did get outside a bit. This is the time of the year that we really appreciate living here. Sun, perfect temps, not too hot during the day and cool enough at night to snuggle under blankets. We are very lucky indeed.

Which brings me to the ScrapTiffany challenge of the week. With Saint Patrick's day on Wednesday, we are focusing on LUCK this week. Here is my take on the challenge--my first ever Bind it All mini.












Go on over to ScrapTiffany and check out all the LUCKY designers and their projects.

Speaking of Saint Patrick's day, Little Miss came home the other day from school and told me she HAS to wear green on Wednesday otherwise a leprechaun would tip toe into her room and pinch her. Can I just say that other 4 1/2 year olds make me insane? As if we don't have enough irrational fears in our house. So I had to explain that leprechauns aren't real, just a story. The verdict is still out on who she believes.

So while we are debunking Leprechauns, we whole heartedly believe in the Easter Bunny lol! Anyone getting ready for Easter already? The kids have been doing lots of painting of ceramic eggs and foam stickers. I decorated an Easter bucket with a bunch of goodies from the Easter Jillibean Soup line called Egg Drop Soup (love those little chicks!):

I had no idea how easy those rolled roses were until I finally gave them a try! And a glue gun makes them even easier!


Oh and I was featured as a Spotlight on the GCD Studios blog the other day! Check it out HERE. Alright, off to clean some more, hope you all have a happy week!
