grrr to google

Grrr to google+ or grrr to me.. I tried enabling google comments the other day, but doing so I wasn't seeing any of them.. so now I have disabled google+ comments again and now I still can't see any comments.. I think I will just stick with blogger's for now until I get my .com online... which I have not worked on yet.... haha

I've not felt very inspirational in awhile now.. my gumption got up and left me, and I'm sitting here like.. really? What the heck? Except I didn't say heck and I'm quite down on myself right now because I have NO motivation right now. None.
I have work up to my eyeballs and I am sinking quick... praying something turns around for me soon.. and ask me how many emails I have waiting on me? Ok, so most of it is probably advertisements and spam.. but I'm sitting on roughly 2800 emails right now.

Enough of my pity party.. this was suppose to be a FUN post.. like amazing fun!
 lemme introduce you to the cutest new Mae clear stamp...

dunno where I was going with my colors.. i never do.. lol
This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend for us in the states... hope all my friends have a wonderful happy weekend!!! 

I am going to work on my mood, motivation, and try to get to work.
wish me luck. :)

It seems I have dropped completely from the blog-o-sphere the last two weeks.
I have a lot I could share here, but I am just going to get to the AWESOME stuff!
This week has a new clear stamp release from Some Odd Girl... the ever so fun and talented beauty, MAE!!

Yesterday was HEY Mae.. 
 Gah, isn't she sweet?
And there are so many fun sentiments in this set too!

and today is MUSIC Mae!!
I had so much fun coloring these beauties up!
I especially love this one.. reminds me of Katelyn!

Head over to the shop to see the new Mae's and hop over to the blog (linked above) and leave some comments there... you could win one of these sweeties!!

Floral Photo Hanger

Afternoon friends!
Been so busy on the home front lately.
I forgot all the work that you don't have to do in the winter months when it comes to outdoor work. I've been busy getting all the flower gardens out front in tippy toppy shape.. of course, I have more to do. All this rain is making it hard to get out there and finish up.

Today on the Creating Made Easy blog, I have a tutorial showing you how you can create your own Floral Photo Hanger using the products from May's kit. You can see that here.

The text on the tag says I am so happy to be your mother. :)

Here's a little close up
Go check out all the other amazing projects using May's kit!

Happy Happy Friday!!

Good morning!! Almost afternoon here... I went back to bed after I got the littles off to school today.  I've been doing a lot of Gardening in the front yard.. weeding and planting flowers.. guess it's taken a toll on me. I just wanted more sleep.  The hard work is paying off though, and I have just a little more I want to do before I feel it's completed.  I'll share a picture once I'm done... too bad I don't have before photos. lol

I have two layouts I am sharing today... both created using May's Creating Made Easy kit from Clear Scraps. 

a couple close ups

I altered the tag to say DO using my dymo label maker and a scrap piece of paper from the kit.. sure fits with the photo bomb! ;)

This one took a little longer to put together.. cutting all those star bursts from the pattern paper.. but it was sure fun!

The die cut at the top had some lovely words on there as well, but I decided to turn it into just something graphical to tie into the star bursts below it.

I have two more projects to share with you later using this fabulous May kit!!
You can see more projects on the CME Blog here.
I'm off to go have lunch with Cameron today (ate lunch with Samantha yesterday and pulled her out of school early) and to let him come home early today as well.  Hope your weekend is full of all things happy, friends!

I received the sweetest card in the mail two weeks ago. I'm a bit ashamed I had not put this up on my blog yet, but it's been so cray cray here with end of year activities for the kids gearing up, Amanda moving back in, and general Spring family activities.. excuses, excuses, I know.. ;)
Anyways, my blog winner from the Spring Paper Haus blog hop mailed me a card in the mail with the loveliest note. I want to show you the beautiful card she made me!
 Thank you SO much, Taunya! 
I didn't realize how much I like receiving snail mail with just a letter attached to it until I received yours. 
It truly made my heart smile from the inside out.
mmk.. that sounds weird, huh? lol

Go check out Taunya's new blog here!!
Have a beautiful Thursday!!
