I knew it was coming...

the most perfect birthday present!

My sweet friend Kristina got something for me a while ago... but she was too sick to attend my birthday party. Poor dear, struck down with the Norovirus and then Scarlet fever! Anyway, she was finally feeling better and stopped by yesterday. Birthday gift in tow!

TaDa! The most perfect shoe!

Aren't they pretty? Now I just need an occasion to wear them... Other than walking around the house... or smiling at them adoringly!

Of course, then there is also the lovely gift the most wonderful Ms. Nat made for me. You'll just have to wait till tomorrow to see what it is.

Have a good one.

They lied!

"They" being the weather people! Yesterday they announced that winter is over and spring was coming! Well... not here! We got another 4-5 inches (at least) of snow last night.

I am NOT happy!

Trouble #2 is also home sick today. Ughh!

Have a good one.

I had a birthday/dinnerparty with a few of my friends, family and neighbors and would you believe? I didn't take a single picture.

I suck at documenting MY life!

Have a good one.

Do you think...

that if you wish for something really hard, it might just happen?

I've been wishing for sun! All I got was inspiration for this little Canvas....

Have a good one.

Isn't this a perfect match?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Have a good one.

The design team's challenge was to take the theme of our blog hop and apply the colours of white, pink and orange to their creations.

For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStamp BOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win a set of brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then return to the mSB blog and tell us what you favourite project was along the way for a chance to win! Have fun!

Here's my little project for the Blog Hop.

I used 6x6in pieces of Cardstock and pattern pieces to make a simple box. I then cut a "ribbon" out of paper and punched the edges with my doily punch. Then I stamped the flower with pink and orange ink on white cardstock, cut the images out and attached them to the paper ribbon. But, I just can't leave things too plain, so I added a few butterflies... stamped and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
The box is just big enough for two or three little truffles. Grin.

Stampsets used: Colorful Companion and Kind Flower

Please hop along to the next designer Ellen Sosnoski to check out her sweet work!

Have a good one.

I am sick and tired of snow!

Yes, I am still around. And I actually have something to show. I hadn't scrapped in forever, but yesterday a new friend (and new scrapper) came over and we scrapped. To lighten my mood, which right now is super depressed because of all the snow and darkness and such, I got out some "happy paper"... namely some Basic Grey that I had bought on my last trip to the US. And the LO turned out happy and summery and light and bright.... I love it.

I have to say, that the picture is not the greatest... it is so dark outside, that I couldn't get a decent picture. It is much lighter and brighter IRL.

Anyway, I am hoping to get some scrapping done tomorrow. We've had such bad snow the last few days, that school is called off for tomorrow.

Have a good one.
