You have got to see THIS!!!

Last night, while my DH and I were talking with our oldest daughter, Katie, we notice that it has gotten quite quiet. Katie peeks into the living room to find Maggie like this.
Katie: "Maggie, get out of there before you rip it!"
Maggie: "I can't, I'm stuck!"
Katie: "Mom, get the camera, Maggie is stuck in her hamper!"
DH, myself and Katie are laughing hysterically and snapping pictures while Maggie is yelling, "Get me out of here and stop taking my picture!" Poor Maggie. The things she gets herself into, blow my mind.

I thought you would like to start your Friday with a smile! XO, Mimi

Black Friday Deals

I have got to show you what I got at my LSS on Friday. They had a sale from 12 to 2. We got 40% off of our entire purchase. It was a mad house. Boy was it worth it! I picked up these beautiful stamps from Technique Tuesday. To see both stamp sets, click on both links in blue. I am in love with them. They make, even the simplest card, elegant! That is the only shopping that I did that day. I am NOT a good crowd fighter. I would rather shop on line, in my p.j.s, with my coffee and NO crowds! With all the free shipping deals, you can't beat it.

Have a wonderful Wednesday! I hope to be going to Michaels later to play with the NEW Cricut. We get our store machine today and I promised to teach the other girls that work there how to use it. I am so excited! Santa had better be droppin' one of these under my tree! XO, Mimi

Someting to be Thankful for.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends. We had a lovely time at my Sister-in-laws and then at my Mom's. It was very nice to see everyone and for everyone to get along so well.
I took my camera, yet I didn't snap one picture. So, I will leave you with some photos from Tuesday when Maggie's class put on a Thanksgiving production for us.

Have a wonderful day! XO, Mimi

More Table Scraps

This is a little gift I made for Katie with some table scraps. The container is from some plastic letters. I used scraps of my softball paper and stickers. The 3 compartments are 3x4. It was quick and easy and, most importantly, she loves it. The finished photos show the front and back of the project.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Tuesday. If I don't post before then, have a fabulous Turkey day! XO, Mimi

Quad-City Champs!!! Woo Hooo!!!!

My daughter, Katie, and her team, won the Championships in Softball. What a team she plays on. These girls are a force to be reckoned with. Most of them have been playing since they were 5 or 6. I hope Maggie sticks with it till she is 16. She will be awesome. I am so proud of Katie sticking with it. After she broke her leg last year, we didn't think she would play again. She broke her leg sliding into home and will not ever slide again, she says. And most of the girls that were there that day refuse to slide too. It was a freak accident. But it was bad. Anyhoo, she is back in the saddle and high on victory. Here are a couple shots of the girls with their Champagne, (sparkling Cider) and trophies.

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi

Fun House Guests!

I know that I hinted, a while back, about house guests that I had. Well, here they are. First of all, we had Nora for a week and a half. When Leslie told me she was going out of town, I asked if we could watch Nora. She asked if we wanted her over Halloween too, since she has 2 costumes. Of course I do. So, we had Nora's company and Maggie and I loved it. Rick and Katie were not as thrilled. Too bad, so sad! Well, when Leslie came back to town, she missed Nora so much that she came for Halloween too. We had so much fun. We went on a hayride and through a haunted tunnel. Maggie, Nora and I dressed up as pirates. Yo ho ho! This is the book I made for Leslie and Nora to remember their visit.

Thanks for stopping by, on this beautiful Monday Morning! XO, Mimi

You Spice Up My Life!

Look at what my friend Milissa brought by for me. She had a couple leftovers of her kit this month and wanted to share. You have got to go see her great kit at Serendipity. She really cheered me up. I have the most wonderful friends!!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much. My mojo has gone on vacation, again. Every time my depression stops by, mojo leaves. I am beginning to see a pattern here!
So, while I am feeling a little creative, I thought I'd bless you with a little card I made today.

P.S. The golden piece on the card is a die-cut from K&Co. Great for cards and journaling!
