So.... I've been working like a mad woman trying to get enough things in different price ranges to open an Etsy store, and in the meantime I've also been pouring over the forums there trying to learn as much as I can about store promoting and whatnot. But, I keep getting distracted by pretty shinys LOL Last night I was wandering through a thread with shops that have $5 and under items thinking I'd find some great stocking stuffers and I found... wait for it.... a DRESS made out of a PILLOWCASE. Are. you. kidding. me? I bought the darling one above that looks like a fruit bowl of fabulousness and I can not WAIT to get it :) It was supposed to be a B'day present for Elli, but I don't know if I can wait that long to put it on her! And the prices are ridiculous! The one I bought was $12, but I think it was the most expensive one. If you have a little girl to buy for head over to Tsurfer's shop HERE and snatch up your own, she has quite the selection of patterns :) She also has some other cool funky stuff, but I can't show you the other thing I bought cause it was a present for Lex and she actually knows how to use a computer LOL

then I stickled all the dots on the ribbons and also on my stamped sentiment :)
I had to take a closeup of this little do-hicky. I have no idea where it came from but it just is so darn pretty :)

I cut out a strip of trees and adhered them with pop dots and of course stickled the apples LOL I had this acrylic bird laying around so I covered it in pink and brown Stayzon and tacked it down with a couple brads. I ususally stay far far away from the clear stuff as they're a pain in the rear to adhere to paper, but I really love this little birdy :)
And I had a die cut that matched so that one went on there with some pop dots too :) Thanks for lookin!
And here's what I did with it! I am working on some items to sell and I made this card with some scrap left overs from the baby boy album I'm making :) I just love these Making Memories baby papers!
And because everythings better with sparkle I had to make the elephants just a little more fabulous :)
I don't usually do the insides of cards, but it just felt like it needed it on this one! Very simple but I think it looks darn cute how it all came together!

Ok so I'm super dork, but this Card of the Week award at 365 Cards just made me so happy! Isn't it nice how little pick me ups like that always seem to happen when you really need them? Anywho... it was for the rainbow card I made with last weeks Sunday Sketch, which is probably my favorite I have made for the 365 challenges so far!
And here's my last card for this week. And it's still Saturday for me so I got them all done on the right day except for one WOO HOO! I have a ginourmous pile of gorgeous cards.... I really need to start sending them LOL This days challenge was to use the song "Lean on Me" as inspiration. I found myself really wishing I had a super cute stamp with people leaning on eachother but hey.... what are you gonna do? So I settled for using the song title and making a pretty card to go with it :) Really do love how it turned out!

I realized today it's been a long time since I posted pics of the kidlets for my Mom and Dad to see so here goes.... some snapshots of the kiddos bein their normal crazy selves :) So this was a classic Elli.... she was mad at Steve and I cause we stole her TV to watch our show (the NERVE), and she informed us she was running awaw. Below was part of her "running away dance."
Steve said "Elli where are you going?"
Elli said "To the store"
Steve "What are you getting at the store?"
Elli " A new vacuum for Mommy!!!!!!"
No one really understands that but what the heck it was cute LOLhave you met our new friend the nanerpus????? Wendy was kind enough to introduce Elli and I to the wonderful world of the Denny's Nanerpus commercial.... Elli watches it about a gazillion times a day. So of course we had to make a Nanerpus of our own. Here he is in all his glory..... Lexi drew his face and said he was nerdy nanerpus :)
In case you haven't seen it.... here's the commercial (Ok I cant figure out how to get it here... "nice" but here's the linky)
And here's poor sad nanerpus meeting his untimely demise. Elli decided she was hungry LOLOne night after Elli went to bed Mr. Coby pulled his usual trickery and stayed up to play with Mommy and Daddy! I swear these two conspire all day... when one falls asleep the other wakes up. Like immediately. Anywho... here's Coby having the much detested "tummy time." Poor kid just hates it but he's getting so much better at holding his head up when on his tummy :)
HA I got Lexi LOL For my blogging friends whose kids are not yet teens this is what you have to look forward to! I have to sneak up on her and hope she doesn't have enough time to roll her eyes or glare :)
Steve got a bunch of funny pics tonight of Elli having a hair obsessed day! this kid has not let me "do" her hair or have a pony in for more than five seconds in the last three years.... and today she was ALL about the headband and the "pinky" tails as she called them :)
Sadly for Gracie.... she got involuntarily involved in the dressup game. Elli dressed her head to toe and it was hilarious! Poor silly dog!
