House of 3 Happy Birthday Card/Banner

I have been loving using House of 3 printables. I made these cards from Heidi's sample and added the crown bling and number 7. Going to give these to two princesses on their birthdays :)
Also used the larger cake to make a banner for the girls. I hope they enjoy!

Pics from Craft Day

Stamped these pretties on craft day and cut out. Heidi Swapp birthday stamp and Ali Edwards You stamps. Also used my new Technique Tuesday banner stamp that I adore.

I have had these Maya Road Leaf Chipboard pieces for some time and finally got around to making them look pretty. Used chalk ink and text stamp.

House of 3 Father's Day Download. I am a step ahead for Father's Day...Yeah!

I have been running low on birthday cards and got myself back in gear to make some more.

Hello Thursday

Ok, so I haven't gotten around to taking photos of my cards as hoped. Shooting for Sunday afternoon (crossing my fingers it will be sunny.) On another note, I am so excited to be seeing this group tomorrow - John Butler Trio. Love, love, love his music. I never tire watching him play his guitar on youtube especially when he uses his guitar as a drum. Very talented man indeed!

Scrappy Day

Last Saturday I had my monthly get together with my girlfriends for a crafty day. I haven't scrapbooked since July of last year and the only time I did anything crafty was to make my boyfriend Christmas cards in December. Well, that is about to change. I feel rejuvenated and inspired to create again and look forward to sharing. Heidi Swapp has always been an inspiration and her collaboration at House of 3 really sparked the creative juices. Will try to make some time this week to photograph my most recent projects and cards.
Thanks for stopping by!

Kurt Exhibit

I have been seeing promos around Seattle for the Kurt Exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum and being such a big Nirvana fan I knew I would want to go. The Kurt Exhibit opened tonight and it showcased artists' works inspired by Kurt as well as some of my favorite photos of Nirvana. I love pics of him as he is tossing himself into chaos- something I would never do myself.
Christopher took a pic of the exhibit of Kurt's head which is so freaky looking. This particular exhibit was also located with photos of his body laying lifeless on the floor and his shoe is sticking out. Wasn't quite sure how I felt about that. I did enjoy the areas where they played videos and music the best.

Lasting Memories

If you live in the puget sound area...lasting memories is closing their doors and everything is marked 40% off. sad to see them close since they have been one of the only full service scrapbook stores in our area. was up there on monday and their stock is diminishing rapidly.


Ever since my migraine hit I have been feeling nausea here and there and it was so frustating having to come to work feeling like that. Finally last Friday my coworker suggested I take a motion sickness pill like Dramamine and it did the trick! I actually got meclizine because it had less side effects. I felt so good we went rock climbing last Saturday. Will write more about that at another time with some pics too.
I also get a pat on the back for making sure Christopher's mom got a package on mother's day as well as splurging on my own momma. I totally surprised her with a pair of flat Coach shoes which she has been eyeing for a couple weeks now.
Slowly but surely I am gradually getting back into scrapbooking. So far I made an envelope album from the house of 3 website and I have a monthly craft meet with my girlfriends on the 22nd. Here's to sparking the crafting juices!
