March 19th-31st

March 31st
I am still searching for the perfect ribbon holder. This is my latest idea...a trouser hanger. Still not my favorite, but it does hold the big Costco ribbon rolls. I have one more option to try so cross your fingers that it works!

March 30th
Remember the trench that Sean was digging to lay the electrical for the low voltage lighting in the backyard? As promised, here is a picture of the up lights Sean put in. The picture does not do then justice! I LOVE how the backyard looks now! I can't wait to put the pathway lights in too!

You know something is going on when your child is too quiet! He got into my makeup drawer! He tried really hard to get the eye shadow on his eyes, but I may need to give him lessons if he keeps getting into it! LOL

Sean's newest project...rearrange the garage! Ok so really it is my fault. We started talking about moving the boat into the garage and I asked "why didn't you put your work bench in the other corner of the garage?" He thought that was a great idea! So he has been working on it all weekend and he loves it.

Look it is a bunny! Ian found the hat that Grandma made him before he was born. It looks like bunny ears, so I thought it would be a great picture for Easter. Well as you can see by the look on his face that Ian was not very cooperative!

Here is the second attempt at my mom's flower arrangement. The real flowers already died, so I decided to make paper flowers. Now they will last forever! They took some time to make, but they turned out great. And my mom loves them! If you want to see up close pics of each flower click here

Ian and I were playing out in the backyard and we found three grasshoppers. Ian was not so sure about them at first but I think he ended up thinking they were pretty neat. Here is my favorite picture.

March 24th
I am working on a project and Ian wanted to help so I gave him some extra flowers and a duplicate bottle of Stickles I had. I tried to explain that he didn't have to squeeze very hard, but I think that was his favorite part. I was worried they had so much on them that they would NEVER dry! But they finally did :)

March 23rd
Stamping is my newest obsession! I got so much cool stuff from the Scrapbook Expo that I wanted to make Laura a thank you card. She is the best friend ever and we had so much fun! And she liked my card too!

March 22nd
In this months "All You" magazine they had the cutest Easter flower arrangements. I knew my mom liked them so I decided to make her one. I just love it! I hope she does too!

March 21st
Just got back from the Scrapbook Expo today. Laura and I had a blast! It was so nice to get away even for just one night. It was just like the old days :) I wanted to share all the goodies that I either bought or won at the show... 7 Story Tellers Kits, adorable jungle stickers, an idea book, two sets of workshop layouts, 30 stickles, a bottle of Glossy Accents, buttons (won), Queen and Co. Sequin Elements and Jewels (free gift) and last but certainly not least, 36 Copic Sketch markers!!!! We will definitely be going again!

March 20th
Laura and I went to the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton today. There were sooooo many vendors! We got worried when it took us almost two hours to go through 5 booths! But we managed to fit everything in. Next time we might even attempt a crop!

March 19th
My mom sent me a website that had these adorable baby shoes. She thought that I could design something to cut out on my Cricut. Well sure enough I imported the pattern into Inkscape and cleaned it up. Then I imported into Sure Cuts A Lot and cut them out. They are too cute!
