Scrappin Monday

Morning y'all! I can't believe that July is almost over and we are on to August. It seems unreal that my kids will be starting up school again here at the end of August. Yikes where does the time go. I'm not sure I'm ready for school and all that again. Anyway here are this weeks Scrap book pages. Have a wonderful day y'all!

I can't believe how little this bug was once upon a time. He's such a big boy now. 

Fortunately for him he's got more hair too.

Hmmm is it just me or do they all kind of have the same expression? :)

Finish This #28

The only thing standing between me and ____ is
Loosing this baby weight is my love of cinnamon bears, caffeine because I have to take something to counteract the benadryl I have to take for my allergies, and my love of cupcakes. Yeah okay let's just face it food is standing in my way and time. As I deal with five plus kids all day and rarely seem to have a moment free to exercise. Need to start making time for that though. So, I feel healthy.

I don’t have to be perfect to be
I just have to be a good mom so that my boys grow up to be the kind of men their future wives are happy with.

I would improve ____ by
Gees people don't ask me questions like this. There are tons of things I wish to improve. I seriously don't really know where to start. I would improve my attitude when things don't go how I think they should. When things don't work out the way I have planned I tend to get a little frazzled. I would totally improve this so that I can just relax when life throws me a curve ball.

Have a wonderful day y'all!

Crafting Away

Morning y'all! I can't believe it's Friday around these parts. Well y'all I will be going to visit my family some time this summer and it just so happens that I will be there for my little niece Shaye's birthday. I am so excited. I haven't seen her since she was a baby but she talks to me on the phone all the time when I call my mom. She visits her Grandma a lot! They just live down the road from one another. How awesome is that. It's like me and my sis. Love living close to family! Anyway I've been trying to figure out what to give her for her birthday. We picked up a cute stuffed animal awhile back but wanted to give her something else to go with it. Now y'all know I have just a slight obsession with Saturated Canary Digi's. So, if you have never ever seen Krista's stuff you really must stop by and check out her site. Stop by the facebook page to see what others are doing with their digis and of course check out her blog. Anyway Krista put up a new stamp awhile ago called Miss Personality and oh my gosh I new as soon as I saw it that I had to make something awesome for my niece. So I headed to hobby lobby to find a picture frame and here's what I came up with. 

Don't you just love those colors! I can't believe she's going to be three. My how time flies. Well since I'm heading home and I rarely get to see my parents as it's not so cheap to fly with four kids I also thought it would be nice to have something for my mom. I made her this cute frame using the Saturated Canary image called Sisters. 

My mom is the second oldest of 7 sisters and this just reminded me of her and her sisters. I have the best Aunts and mom! I'm also seeing my best friend that I haven't seen in like three years and it's going to be her birthday shortly after I go home so of course I had to make her something using Saturated Canary's Best Friend Selfies image. Of course I had to make a sort of matching one for me to hang up at my house and I totally love this quote from dr. Seuss. 

Wow I've been making a lot of gifts. I think they all turned out really well though. So, that's it for now y'all! Hope your getting a little crafting in this summer. Have a wonderful weekend.

Summer Mantel 2014

Morning y'all! How are you doing today? Well I'm doing great well my allergies aren't but I'm feeling good! We had to clean out our garage the other day due to some nasty pest that some how were everywhere. Let's just say it was disgusting and I don't want anyone to gag. I'm so girly some times when it comes to nasty critters. Anyway thankful for an amazing husband who did most of the nasty work. Plus he cleaned up all the dog hair and other junk in our garage. Well y'all I've been busy the last couple of weeks getting my craft on. Yep I've actually had a bit of time to get some crafting done! It feels good when you get to use your mad crafting skills once in awhile. Okay my skills aren't probably mad but I totally love to craft when I get the opportunity.  Plus the 4th of July has come and gone for another year which means it was time to change up my mantel decor. Yeah! My summer mantel is probably one of my favorites due to the fun soda bottles I have to use. My dad is so awesome at finding me fun treasures to decorate with. I'm not sure he even knows how I use most of them but he keeps finding really fun bottles for me. Here's what summer looks like around our house.

Here's a closer look at my fun Soda bottles. Some of course aren't vintage they are just ones that I've found around that are cool. However, the Fresca, Pepsi, and Cola bottles are all ones that my dad and brother have found me. Plus don't you just love the little flower pot full of fun straws and summer time things. 

Now to go along with all this soda goodness that is making it feel so summer in my house I also have this fun banner I put together. I have a slight love of Saturated Canary designs. So, of course I had to add some to this summer mantel. To me summer is all about family and friends, camping, travel etc... So, I found some fun summer themed stamps and added them to my banner. 

I just colored these Saturated Canary designs with colored pencils but y'all should see some of the cards that people make using copics markers. Oh my word those ladies have mad coloring skills. I hope that you enjoyed this years summer mantel as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Have a wonderful summer day today y'all!

Finish This #27

For July 4, I celebrated by …
By doing absolutely nothing. I got food poisoning on Wed night and we still trying to feel awesome by the fourth so we just vegged. Our small town actually did fireworks and everything the weekend before the 4th.

My go-to cosmetic product is …

Is all about eye concealer in Petal by Clinique. Seriously makes me look like less of a zombie mommy. Hides all that lack of sleep under it's awesome concealer!

I am inspired by …

Every day I am inspired by my kids to be a better mom and a better version of myself. Lately my shortman has been inspiring me to take life just a little less serious. He is my carefree, goofy child. Also if you have never read Brittany Estes blog. She is one inspiring mama. They are in the process of adopting and it's so inspiring to see how she feels about it and how she just can't wait for this little one to join their family. I am so inspired by all the love she shares with the world. Such a great example.

The best relationship advice I received was …
Never go to bed mad. Seriously people your never going to fall asleep if you mad at your other half. Your just going to lay there and be angry so you might as well forgive each other or finish fighting. :)

When no one is around, I tend to …
Read a good book or watch something I want to watch cause lets face it most of the time I'm stuck watching little kid shows or reading little kid books to cute little kids. I also might dance around because there is no almost 10 year old there to tell me I'm embarrassing him. I also might dance in front of him on purpose on occasion because it does embarrass him. Yep I'm that kind of mom.

Hope you are enjoying the Finish This series. I love this linky party and I think y'all would love it to. Be sure to stop by one of the cohost blogs to find out what next weeks questions are and come link up your post for this week. Have a wonderful Wed y'all!
