Time for Coffee!

I made this adorable little sign for in my kitchen or studio. I haven't decided yet.
I got the idea from a blog but I cannot remember where.
I saved the picture but there is no watermark for me to tell you who created the original.
Of course I changed the colors for my space and made it read time for coffee because to me it's always time for coffee except when it's time for diet coke.
So, if this is your design or you know who's it is, let me know so I can give proper credit because I love it.
Thanks for stopping by the studio. XO, Mimi

Another Onesie

This onesie book is for Olivia, my Brother's daughter. Yesterday's books are for the twins, Cameron and Noelle, my Sisters babies.
I made them with paper that was similar but different colors since they are twins.
This book I went a little more freestyle on since Olivia is an only child, for now.
I wanted them to all be different and original like the babies are.
Enjoy your day! XO, Mimi

A Fabulous Weekend!

This weekend was awesome. On Saturday, Maggie and I went to St. Pete to a store called Whim-So-Doodle. Every year they have a yard sale where people get rid of their unwanted papercraft items. Let me tell you, I got such great bargains. I got much more paper than I need but, it was only 10 cents each. Tons of goodies and embellishments too. My Mom met us there and she was like a kid in a candy shop.
After that we went to the open air market that was just down the street. There were so many vendors with hand crafted goods and food goods, fresh veggies and fruits, a band and people dancing. It was wonderful. I had my first empinata (sp?). Yum!
Then we went to the annual plant fair. They had so many plants and trees at such wonderful prices.
Before going home we went to see my cousin Erika's house then out to eat at Cody's Roadhouse. OMG, it was so good and the bill only came to $50 for 4 of us. Wow!
It was a fabulous day!
Now for the goodies. I got these awesome little onesie chipboard books at the Doodle and I made them all pretty for my new Nieces and Nephew. My sister had her twins and my Sister-in-law had her baby girl. All last week. Isn't that awesome? My step Mom became a grandma 3x in one week and they are all the first grang babies from her children. I can't wait to go see them all. They are in TX so I will have to wait a little bit.
Well, hope you had a great weekend too! Thanks for stopping by the studio. XO, Mimi

Today's Coffee Card

Today's coffee is on Dream Street. The paper line is Fresh and this design is Carefree.
Same stamp set from GinaKDesigns and rick rack from May Arts.
The buttons are a mix from different companies so I cannot even guess.
I mix them all together in a big jar and just dig around when I need something.
I think it's more fun that way.
Now, back to my cuppa joe. Have a blessed day! XO, Mimi

More coffee in Sanoma!

More Sanoma paper from Scenic Route. I can't get enough. Just like the coffee. The colors are so rich and relaxing and invite you to sit and stay a while.
So, go ahead and sit and stay a while!
Have a happy day! XO, Mimi

I'm Back! Sorry for the delay!

So sorry for being gone so long. I have just been livin' life. I have been creating stuff but had a lazy period of not taking pictures. Sorry!
Anyway, here is a nice Thank You that I made with some beautiful paper from SEI called Oasis. I have had it for a while but finally pulled it out. The letters are Thickers from American Crafts, Prima flowers and a gorgeous velvet embellishment from Mayaroad. Not a stamp in sight. Wow! That's unusual for me!
Well, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and Merci for stopping by!
