a new obsession


FARM TOWN on Facebook!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D Having so much fun!!! except when I had to sell my horse and donkey to get money to buy seeds. That made me a little sad. on the home front we got Room #1 basically all cleaned out... just need to move a few final pieces of furniture out of the room. All in all was a good day!!! I may not be able to move tomorrow from all the work but it was a good day :D

Only a few days left for KnK's Sketch contest

Check out all the details here at KnK's newsletter. Hurry only a few days left. Well our beautiful weather is set to go downhill today as we are under a winter storm warning!!!! ICK .... Now I normally love snow... but after spending last weekend planting spring bulbs I am not happy to hear that 5-9 inches of white stuff is coming :( Of course it didn't help that my KnK buddies were emailing about their "chilly" 70 degree weather. NO fair!!! hmmmm plotting my evil revenge on them... ???THINK I Could Ship them some snow???

Musicals, coughs and remodeling oh my!



Where have I been for a week???? Well post vacation laundry and house catch up cleaning to start. Add a dash of 2 daughters with roles in the school musical and 3 performances, with me along to do their makeup :D and even made up a few of their friends. Add a nasty cold for 3 family members (four if you count my mom- who also watches Alex before and after school) and you get one busy family.

AND (isn't there there always an AND???) we and now getting ready to start a major remodeling project on the house...as in ripping out plaster, changing doorways, knocking out walls in 4 rooms on the main floor! So I am trying to pack up rooms one by one as we can only do one room at a time since we will be bedroom swapping during this process too.

The result is I need a scrappy break :D cross your fingers I get one this weekend :D

April Kit creations :D





I have to admit... I was a little worried about this kit. I loved loved the colors! but I had never worked with the Bisous B-zoo PDQ papers before! They are awesome.. Very versatile. If you need a quick layout you can use them as is (hence the Pretty Darn Quick name :D). Or It is like getting dozens of different papers all in one sheet. cut out a journaling block from one side, flip the paper over and cut out a star or a bird. Honestly the sy is the limit! I had so much fun! These are just a few of my creations with the Arpil Knk Kit. More coming soon!

More Graphic 45

TO me this still looks a little oranger than in real life... But it is all sepia tones. This is a picture of Meagan when she was about 10 months old or so. Still using every last tiny scrap of my Graphic 45 papers. I have more coming they just didn't fit in my last order from KnK. Seems my order didn't fit in with my kit! Is that a sign I order too much? Nope! But I did order at least one sheet of each of the new lines from Graphic 45! And By the way, My good friend Deb Harter (see blog link to the left) is their featured artist this month. Way to go Deb! They did feature all of us from KnK's Design Team last month! so wahoo!!!!!!!!! Have a great Sunday!
