Zoo photos are like Christmas photos in my life.  There is a set every year and all of pretty much the same thing.  The only thing that is different is the size of the kids in the pictures so they are always a challenge for me.  So...putting away the cutsie zoo stickers and papers I went in a different direction.  Yes, I know flowers have nothing to do with zoo animals, but they sure are cute!

How Do You Play Marbles, Mom?

Its amazing the things that kids these days are missing out on.  Simple things that we overlook.  Things that we need to be sure to pass on.  For example...marbles.  My girls found marbles that I used to play with as a kid while we were visiting my grandmother one day.  I never even thought about the fact that they never learned how to play.  In a world where kids learn to use a computer and a have their own cell phone by the time they are 5 we should all make it a priority to pass on the simple things that we learned as a child, so pull out the sidewalk chalk and play hopscotch, jump rope, play jacks and of course marbles!

Mouse Pad - Too Cute!

I got this idea from an issue of Lowe's Creative Inspiration magazine.  It is soooo cute I couldn't resist and so easy to make.  All you need is a wooden mouse trap, needle nose pliers, and some paint.  This one is acually a rat trap but I am going to try with mouse traps next.

Softball Mini

This weekend has been a very productive weekend.  I hope the creative juices continue to flow because I feel a sense of accomplishment...finally!  This softball album I started a LONG time ago.  I can't even remember when.  The covers were already done so all I had to do was the inside.  Here is what the end result looks like:

Canoe Trip Mini

Finally got hit by some creative inspiration.  You will notice the pictures are from 2007 which is how far behind I am.  It's sad I know but what can I say.  So here it is.  I used chipboard for the pages and my
Bind-It-All to bind it together.
