Pinterest Fave Five: Valentine Edition

1. Valentine's Day Fonts - My favorite is Heartland. Looking forward to downloading it and using it in a project.
2. DIY Heart Tree - This project looks easy and would be a nice touch in the house for the holidays.
3. A Year of Dates - Great idea for a gift for the hubby. Looks like there's some serious planning
involved but I'm sure I can come up with some that aren't quite as involved or costly.

4. Red Velvet Sandwich Cookie - These cookies will be a hit with my boys...can't wait to try them.

5. Last but not least, a nice list of Valentines page titles.

Sneaky Sunday

A new class for a new year...Good Day Sunshine! I thought it would be nice to warm up February with a bright summer-y layout. In this class, I will show you how to put together a complete layout with 2 pieces of patterned paper, some spray inks, chalk, bling and some fancy snipping. Cost is $10 for a 2 page spread.
 Class will be offered at Scrap-A-Way Waltham, Cool Crops Andover and Scrap-A-Way Warwick.

Nailed It!

I needed some quick and super easy gifts for a few friends. Sam's Club had the EOS lip balm packs and I remembered seeing this cute packaging idea. Bought the balm, printed the .pdf (Thanks Simple as That)  and tied them up...Done in 10 minutes!

Weekend Wrap-up

First event of 2015 done and it was a good time, as always, thanks to the Cool Crops Crew! Nashua was a great location and I got to make some new friends and visit with some ahem old friends. Love that it's work and yet not work. There was plenty of space to spread out and I like how my store has evolved. I would love to hear feedback if you have any...there is always room for improvement.
While I was away at Cool Crops, hubby and my younger boy were at a hockey tournament in New York. Some of you had to listen to this new hockey mom talk hockey, thanks for listening. Sunday morning's championship game was a real nail biter, 1 minute left of the game...the score was 4-3 us...and we had 2 players in the penalty guy was out there playing defense...and they won!

If you're keeping score, my older boy stayed home for his own sports schedule. We hired him a driver and they hung out together, pretty cool. He also stayed home as our designated puppy sitter. What a great kid! I even got puppy updates...check it out
Mom...he thinks it's his personal puppy bed!

How was your weekend?

I Am...

loving  the family photos we took while at my in-laws over the holidays

enjoying having a puppy in the house even if he has decided paper is delicious and sneaks them from my recycle bin anytime he thinks he won't get caught

freezing in the sub-zero temps we have had all week, and it's continuing into next week

listening to an audiobook, ... by Wilbur Smith

watching Covert Affairs season 3 and Justified season 2...while I scrap, knit and run, not all at the same time

knitting two projects - a hat as my on the go project and a gift baby blanket (shhh don't tell)

prepping for the start of a busy season

organizing the boxes and boxes of papers I have purchased to be made into kits, there really isn't enough hours in the day
plotting ways to simplify and streamline my business, this would mean more kits available!

Sneaky Sunday

For Cool Crops Nashua, I have a really neat layout class called Spicy Social. This is the layout to scrapbook your social media photos - your selfies, your foodie pics, your favorite instagram pics, and the list goes on. There's even a "been there pinned that" embellishment. Layout is a 2 page spread and cost is $10.
If you can't make Cool Crops Nashua, I will have extra kits available for purchase at the rest of my events, until sold out.
