Washi Love

Yes, I know, some people are tired of hearing about washi.  However, I am not one of them :).  I made this page and when I was done I realised I hadnt even used any pattern paper. To make the grid I first put the pictures where I wanted them and then traced around the with a pencil.  I took the pics away and added the tape.  Then addded the pics back with everything else.
Its using mostly Amy Tan's Good Life line, which is still my all time favorite line EVER!! The kids were crazy to get at those eggs and the battery on my canon was dead so it was and instax Easter, that story is on the back of the page btw. I love to journal, but I mess up A LOT!  I print it off on the computer sometimes, but usually I dont feel like it so I write it on the back.
     So back to the washi, right! If you are like me and still  LOVE washi then you are in the right place.  I have these two tags with samples of some of the washi I have.  Just leave a comment and you are entered to win :).  I will close this  and post a winner Friday.  Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Hello! Well I went on a spending diet this past winter, but winter is over :) and so is my diet.  So I am compliling my most wanted list for summer. 
1. Grey lullaby thickers from the Crate paper little bo peep collection
Cursive foam thickers are my ultimate weakness, and these are sooo neutral you could put them on EVERYTHING and I probably will.
2.  I am in love all the new anchor printed stuff at JCREW this summer, but these are killing me
are you reading this Christina!!!
3.  This hair cut
right now my hair is soo long, its past the snaps of my bra! Every summer I cut my hair off, and I was like not this summer but yea this summer.  Its hot.
4. Last one
I cant forget about these 2 monkeys!!

So, what have I forgotten? What do you have to have this summer?

Im back!

Thank you all! sweetsierra you can email me at

I finally made it back to blog land.  I dont know what to say except things come when they come and go when they go.  Right now I am just happy to be back :).  This page is made with mostly older stash material, and mostly stuff gifted to me by my friend Christina who recently purged.
I have been making 8.5x11 size layouts for  months, I dont know they are just making sense right now.  To say hello and sorry for being such a slacker I also have a giveaway! My friend Stephanie was also doing a purge and sent me some stamps, I know people keep giving me stuff!  Anyway there were some I already had and she said I could do whatever I want with them so I am going to give this one to one of you!
The set I have is used just so you know.  Just leave a comment and you are entered to win.  I will close the giveaway next Friday and post the winner that day Thank you.

blogger's block

Have you ever had blogger's block? I have, I do.  It's not as if there isn't anything going on because there is, tons of it, I just don't want to blog about it.  I thought I would just wait it out, but it's been so long I don't think that approach was working.  So, I thought I would blog about not being able to blog lol.  That is a desperate measure if I have ever heard one.  Everytime something has happened I have thought that I would blog about it, but then later when I would sit down to do it... nothing.  Sometimes I just couldn't get my thoughts together, other times I would think who in there right mind would read this and just delete it.  Worse is that I have been avoiding blogs almost all together because they just make me think of my poor neglected one.  I'm still making lots of things, but photographing and editing and uploading has just not been happening, and I  am no where near as prolithic as I used to be.  I make one two pager a month that is a mix between project life and project 12, but they contain the kind of information I am just not comfortable putting on the net.  Homeschooling has also become all consuming, I can't wait for Summer! This summer we are only doing a 5 week long experiment in the garden because momma needs a break :).  So I would like to know what do you do if you have bloggers block?  Now I am going to read some blogs guilt free, and because I have to have a picture here is our new puppy Hank.

Something old

So, Im not really good at vintage.  I love the way it looks, but Im just not good at it.  So for this weeks twisted sketch 91 the twist was old, and all I could really thing of was vintage.  So here is my very best try at vintage
I think this would be a great wedding or engagement card.  I had dyed my doily using water and food coloring.  I am now addicted to doilies!
    I am sad to say I have broken my no spend January :(.  I just couldn't pass this up

Im am back in the saddle again though and I hope to finish up the month strong.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!

This is not the greatest song in the world

This is just a tribute.
I cut fill to page on the cricut with the sweethearts cartridge, then trimmed to 8.5x11 and backed each heart with a piece of scrap paper.  Then I stitched it to another 8.5x11 piece of cardstock so everything would stay in place.
Well making this page did help me to feel better, even though I still miss him and think about 849750393 times a day.  What is it exactly about putting something on a piece of paper that can make you feel so much better?  It's like a little bit of magic.  Who was the first person to write something down and then be like wow I feel so much better?  These are the kinds of questions I ask that get on my husbands nerves lol.  Like when I went crazy trying to find out why Native Americans had no facial hair, or who took the first hot shower. 
    Any who, I am still holding strong on the no spend January although is has gotten to be a bit of drag this last week as opposed to how uplifting if had felt before.  I even colored my own roots instead of going to salon.  I could see doing this inbetween visits to really stretch some dollars from now on.  I just used the wash out stuff in case it got really screwed up. 
     I am off to take a hot shower and I will try to enjoy it like I am the first person ever ;) , thanks for looking and have a great day.
