Happy Valentines day!!!

I am not a huge vday person. I mean I make a few cards for family and usually get the boys a little goodie. I don't decorate or do anything too special.

Here is our valentines so far.

This is a super quick banner I made for the mantle. The ONLY decoration I have. lol....

This is the valentine Taylor and I made for his class party. Easy peasy printout I found on pinterest. Just added a pack of koolaid and done!

Taylor refused to make a normal Valentines box for his party. He didn't want hearts or glitter or any of the stuff I wanted him to use. He said he wanted to make a monster. I was thinking a cute little monster with pipe cleaner ears and hearts for eyes. made Franken"tine". LOL

I had the boys gifts on the table last night so they could open them at breakfast.

Taylor left this in my bathroom to find this morning. It says:
"Happy Valentines Day  xoxoxoxoxox
(heart) the lover not the fighter

Chris wrote me "love" letter that's very private and I wont show it here but it sure meant a lot to me!

Tonight we are making heart shaped pizza's and doing laundry. How romatic!

I love to scrap. I rarely find time to do it over a long period of time. It seems now a days I usually get my only scrapping done at the retreats. Which is good, but makes for some boring in betweens. This year I have changed that. I have decided to do my version of project life. I didn't go online and buy all of Becky Higgins really cool products to use because I honestly could not afford all of it. What I should have done is just buy the Page protectors and used my own stuff to fill in. Instead I just decided to do a week at a time on 8.5x11 kraft paper in the same sort of style. I am actually keeping up on it because I have a designated time and do NOTHING else but that. I chose sunday mornings to do my PL page and so far its been working! Thought I would share my first few weeks! Sorry the pictures are not so great. Cell phone camera.

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

Week 5

I have a friend who is also doing PL and we are trying to hold each other accountable to actually finishing this year. I am telling myself that if I can commit to this year and get it done then my Christmas present to myself next year will be Becky Higgins Kit! YAY!

It has been so nice to not worry about matchy matchy or embelishments. It really whats on my desk at the time. No pressure no worries.

holly jolly

For the past two weeks I have had my itunes and Pandora playing Christmas music. I love Christmas music and always have. I know the entire Carpenters Christmas album word for word. I would listen to it over and over and over and over, well you get the picture. My new fun treat this year is Michael Buble's new Christmas album. If you know me at all you will know that I am praying that Michael and his new bride realize they are NOT meant for each other and he will miraculously come crawling back to me. Like I ever had him before but a girl can lie right?

Where am I going with this? Well I will tell you or actually SHOW you!! Here are some of my all time favorite holiday songs!!
Bing Crosby

So there you have it! What's YOUR favorite??

Lights are up

Today work was slow because of the upcoming Holiday. Kids were out of school so my office partner said to head home about 1:00. The kids and I took the opportunity to get some of the outside lights up! The house still looks so plain so I really need to find something to go on the porch near the colums. I don't like the tacky Christmas decorations but its hard to find some that are made for outside that I like. I really need some vegitation in the flour bed to the right. It's all just river rock right now. Any suggestions?

Taken over by aliens

Or by life. It seems life spins so quickly and then I realize, it really HAS been two months since I updated! Sorry blog world. Last weekend I was fortunate enough to take a break from that spinning life and spend some time scrapbooking with a group of fantastic ladies!! We had sooo much fun!

Here is one of the layouts that I did.

I can not for the life of me remember who makes the large brown die cut, but the stamps are from stamping up.
