Today is my Baby's 19th Birthday!

Oh my goodness.
I cannot believe that it has been 19 years since I gave birth to her.
This little girl changed my life, forever.
Look at her now.
All grown up but still my little girl.
Happy Birthday baby!

PS- sorry for the poor quality photo. It is a 19 year old Polaroid. LOL!

More booty from CHA

't love

Can you believe the piles of products that I had to ship home after CHA?
The things I am showing you today are from the Heidi Swapp booth at the Super Show before CHA.
The majority of the products at her booth were .99 each or 3 for $2.49.
I was just a grabby girl. I mean, who doesn't love .99 bling and jumbo flowers? And that box of giant playing cards, yup, .99. My other favorite booth at the show was the booth with $1.00 bling. I bought a pile ther too. I hope I have enough to last me till next time. Hmmm.
Ok, quit drooling and get back to your other blogs or get back to what you need to do today.
Thank you, so much, for checking in with me.
XO, Mimi

All we need is LOVE

Today was not the most productive day.
I started off trying to hang out with some of my peeps and get some samples done for an event this Saturday.
That was quickly thwarted by a phone call from the school nurse of my daughter's school.
Mags was not feeling well and wanted to come home.
So, I packed my things and off I went to pick her up and get her fed and comfy on the couch.
Then I started to work on this lovely little LOVE hanger.
I saw this cutie while blurfing this morning and fell in love with it.
I had to make one for myself.
I am such a sucker for chipboard pretties.
Is it any wonder that Maya Road is one of my favorite companies.
Then it was off to the doctors, dinner, bath time.
Whew. Well, that's all for now.
Maybe I will have more CHA goodies for tomorrow.
Thanks for checkin' in.

More Tim Holtz photos

Here are some more photos of the Tim Holtz stuff that I got. BTW, the flower with the Q in the middle and the bee charm was a free make and take at the Ranger booth with Tim Holtz.
Cool, huh?
The other goodies are products that I purchased at the Super Show, which was before CHA. Yummy!

More on CHA

While I
was at CHA, I had the honor of taking a Tim Holtz class.
It was pure luck.
All of the classes were full and I was watching the monitor in hopes that something would open up.
All of a sudden, from behind me, I hear someone asking if anyone would like to buy a ticket to the Tim Holtz class. Wow! Really? I never expected there to be "ticket scalpers" at CHA. LOL! So, of course, I snatched it up, as the class was starting in under 30 min., and darted off to await my place in the class.
Now, I must be honest, I have always admired Tim's artwork but have never been, what you might call, a groopie.
But, after taking his class, I am hooked.
It was one of the most organized and informative classes I have ever taken.
I was very impressed with the way he teaches and handles even the most difficult of attendees. He is very easy to relate to and he is so nice.

Take a look at the beautiful framed art that we made with his products.
I love it.
And, not only did we make this beautiful piece of art but we also walked away with an amazing amount of products.
The "piece de resistance" was the signed copy of his new book.
Love, love, love it!
Thank you, so much, for stopping by.
More on Monday.
XO, Mimi

Where have I been?

Well, let me tell you. I have been a busy bee.
I just got back from California and the huge CHA show.
It was amazing!
I could never have dreamed of so many crafty and beautiful things under one roof.
I got to make so many pretty crafts and meet so many beautiful people.
One of the wonderful people that I got to meet was Vicki Chrisman.
I have been following her blog for over 2 years now and I love all of her beautiful works of art as well as her stories of her travels.
She is such a sweet person and blew me away when she asked ME to have her picture taken together. Oh my!
I LOVE her new die cut that she designed. She even gave me a couple of the cut outs and some of the Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps.
Look what I made with the little pug that was on there.
Cute, but it's not black like my Zoe.
Kinda looks like my friend's pug.
I promise to show you more in the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by. XO, Mimi
