Next I have to share this FUN jar idea I saw last week on Michelles Blog (HERE are the directions!).. so I THOUGHT I was done and ready for Easter.. but NOOO after I saw this I had to create it! :) I didnt have the wide mouth jar.. so I used the narrow.. it all fit but 2 peeps.. we just put them on the side! (the neighbors didnt mind! LOL!)

The Jar (front view!)
Card (close up!)
Jar (side view!- it just makes me SMILE to see it! :) )

For that little peep in the jar... all I did was google search Peep coloring pages .. and I was able to save one.. and cut it down to just the bunny peep! I LOVE that PP it was from the PEEP line by We R Memory Keepers.. I LOADED it up with glimmer mist.. it is all sparkley .. hard to tell in the photo!!!

Whatever you wish!! :) Easy Peasy..and LOTS of colors to use.. I prefer the white sparkles so they are easier to print on, and stamp on!

Friday Share!

Happy FRIDAY! Oh my I am EXCITED for the weekend! My week just flew by! LOTS to do.. so I could have used an extra day or 2 this week! LOL!!

Gonna get right down to biz. today! :) Did you see Melissa post.. TODAY! Be still my really starting to LOVE VINTAGE HEART!! :) Well I HAD to do some shopping from the link she shared..
Made by Janet. I got the 6 item special.. what a sweetheart she is.. she got them right to me this AM.. and I printed up 4 of the 6 sheets.. I just ADORE them! So this AM.. I whipped these up for my Grandmas Easter Treat.. I needed a little tag for the basket... this I think was perfect...
All I had to do was cut, ink, and add the ribbon and rose.. FUN FAST and EASY! I think my grandma will LOVE that sweet egg! :)

Next up is not a creative share.. crafty but not creative.. I am TRYING to get my craft room in order.. those that know me and have seen it are probably LOLing right now! It is BAD! I need to PURGE, ORGANIZE, and STOP SHOPPING! (that wont happen.. but a HUBBY can dream! HA HA!) anyway.. I used my birthday gift cards from Michaels.. and got some of those GREAT cube organizer things.. all my PTI will be in the 4 drawer one.. then I got this style with 1 drawer and 16 compartments in it.. and a shelf.. WELL I decided to use it for my PTI dies.. I LOVE it.. there is room for LOTS of growth! :) AND room to cut some dies and just have them ready.. I laid my long dies and impression plates on top of the empty cubes.. with them empty it works fine.. I LOVE them all in one spot.. the drawer comes right out so I can have them all near me! :)
I really like how Nicole had hers shared HERE.. BUT I am REALLY working on using what I have.. and so I did them up like this! The labels I just printed from the file share Nicole posted!

So I am SWAMPED today.. tomorrow we celebrate my sweet girls birthday(her official day is 22nd.. but cant party Easter Weekend..well we could.. but arent! LOL!).. I have LOTS to get done! Hope you all have a FANTASTIC weekend! THANKS for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday.... And A Card Share! :)

Happy Tuesday... aka day 4 of no Alarms... and the kids are already BORED! HA HA!! :) It was nothing but RAIN yesterday so we didnt do much... today hoping they can at least get out side! I need to WALK! (they can ride!:)

I have a card to share with ya... I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Friendship Jar, and Fillers Sets.. from PTI... NOT that I have used them much.. but oh the ideas I have!! :) My Mom had to have surgery on both knees (LOVE YOU MOM!) and the kiddos and I went to visit her and take her to lunch... I had to give her a card with her flowers... I knew what I wanted to do.. those FABULOUS tulips in the Spring Set!! So this is what I came up with.. it isnt overly embellished... but sometimes I think the card just stands alone.. and to me those tulips just stand alone.. in all their beauty... (Ok I LOVE tulips that could be why I say those things! HA HA!)
