Happy Birthday Larry

I made this for one of our retired neighbors from Audubon. He is a golfer, of course, but this is a tube of chocolate golf balls and I just wrapped it in paper and decorated it with a golfer's theme. Enjoy Larry!

decor elements



I added some more decor elements to my stamp room. I love the touch they add and highly recommend them to anyone who isn't sure what they want for a wall decor or are afraid of doing anything drastic. They are simple to apply and SU has so many fun ones to choose from....so start applying them to your walls! And peel them off when you want a change or something new.

My Valentines

Brad gets 3 new black and white shirts with hearts sprinkled on them and a hugs and kisses ribbon tied on the button.....No chocolate!!!!
Britney is working hard at dropping a few pounds, so Valentine treats are not her friend this year, so to make it fun, I put a couple little treats in a martini glass with a pair of cute undies and gave her a Target gift card instead.

Valentines for Mallory

Britney's very best friend in the whole wide world was having a bad day last week, so I asked Brit if we could make something up to take to her that would give her a smile. So this is what we came up with.....its right off the demonstrators website and we included 2 pair of Valentine panties from American Eagle, the heart sucker and a couple flip flop notebook pads. Candy Cane Lane paper and ribbon and it all made her smile....

Dawn's Valentine

This is a heart shaped muffin pan with heart shaped muffins inside, so I just needed to add a little detail to make it fun enough to give to her. I forgot to take a photo of it before it went out the door, so this is what she sent me from her office. I hope you can see the detail.

Be My Valentine

I always give Braydon, my son, boxers for Valentines Day. So this year I made a very simple box to tuck them into and punched hearts in the top so they showed through.
