Out of the blogging world...

I have been out of the blogging world for quite sometime!! My family has been sick for the past two weeks, just passing colds, coughs, fevers to each other. No Fun!!

Well, today I had it all planned. We were going to launch our new site (new name and all) and do a giveaway. But, because of my sickness, that has kinda set me back! I am really excited about the new site, that I am just going to post about it anyways and the giveaway will be on Monday...with new things in the shop as well! Awesome new things in the shop!!

My new found love with scrapbooking!

I have discovered DIGITAL scrapbooking!! I know it has been around for awhile now, but I have just recently started using it and I love it. I have made some cute pages, cards, calendars, and blog layouts so far. I think it is fun to create these things using all the cute digital scrapbooking kits, papers, and embellishments. Fun! I thought I would share some awesome digital scrapbooking sites that I have found:


Free Digital Scrapbooking

Shabby Princess

The "Kreative Karma"


Digital Scrapbook Place

I know there are other great sites, but I haven't found them yet!

Recycled Capri Sun Items

I thought this was a great idea. My daughter went to a b-day party last weekend and everything was "green" for all of the people trying to recycle. They gave these out as goody bags.
They have some great ideas. and products.

I also found this great link to Skip to MyLou's website where she does a tutorial on how to make them.

Coming soon!!

I went to a baby shower tonight and I thought this monkey would be really cute to make and give as part of the gift. My favorite thing about this monkey is the face and the twisty tail! So cute! And...I am almost done making another one and it will be up in our etsy shop soon. I am so excited about this, because I love making these monkeys and they are so cute!!

I also made these Bakerella cupcakes to bring to the shower. Both of my little girls loved helping me make these. And they are yummy!! is a little sneak peak of what is coming to our etsy shop soon!! So check back by the end of the week to see the whole picture :)

Chipboard Boxes

Another great idea for a quick and easy gift or to give away. I did these boxes up for my 5 yr old daughter's birthday party. Instead of favor bags, I did these boxes. She is having a Disney themed gymnastics party so I ended up mod modging disney paper onto the 4 sides of the boxes and then the top. For the sides, I took stamp pads and stamped around them and then I added a bow to the Cinderella one, and paper to another one.
