enjoy...

I need a moment to breathe. The continuing line of questioning from the little ones, long list of chores, and bunches of scrapping supplies all around me. Some days it seems like life has control of me instead of me sitting in the driver's seat. It just takes a moment to realize that it is ok to stop and take a breath, sit out for a day and relax, and don't forget to enjoy it all at my own pace. Ahhh...what a day. But, it is time to jump back in and enjoy another fun filled day remembering that brief time outs are required to keep our engines running.

So after a day of watching several romantic comedies (my favorite) and feeling rested it is time to share...

I had fun with
MelJen's Designs this week and have three projects to share. Always remember that you can alter these images to any size and crop as you wish. They are so adorable and versatile.

Using Garden Welcome Sign and Teddy Cookie.

Using Garden Bird House.

Using Little Fire Hydrant and Darling Dalmation.

It is your turn to join in the challenge. Enjoy creating and best of luck!

I promised...a GIVEAWAY! I love giveaways, and because of that I am going to be having three giveaways over the next few weeks. Check back often as you could be the winner. I have something special for the next two giveaways that I personally handmade and would love for one of you to receive :)

Giveaway:
You could win 3 pockets of stickers, 1 package of craft flags, 1 package of bread(less) tags, and 4 sets of burlap buttons from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker. Just leave a comment here and I will choose a winner by Saturday, May 22nd at 8:30 EST.

Two more projects before I go. I love making little pillows. Whether they be used in your craft room as a pincushion or inspiration I love them! The first one I made just the other day and the second one was published in the Feb/Mar 2010 issue of Simply Handmade.

Ok, enough for now. I am long overdue for getting back on schedule here. Hope you all are enjoying your day! I will be back tomorrow with a few new projects and great prices in my Etsy shop will be popping up just around the corner :)

Until then my friends...lots of hugs!

Andrea

I've been one of your Etsy buyers for a long time (since the early days, maybe). Your talent for making items and photographing them astounds me. I especially love your wall hangings because they allow me to take your gorgeous pieces like the Let Your Dreams Take Flight hanging and I can see them each day. Keep up the great work!
