Check this out

Fabulous Fun Finds is having lots of giveaways right now. But the one that caught my eye is this one. Mohop Shoes. Go check out their website.


If you look at the site, it's exactly as it says "a new pair of shoes .... every day" They come in 3 different heel sizes, low, mid and high. And when you order, they come with 5 (yes 5) different colored ribbons. They even have a template to show you the different ways to wear the ribbons.

Really check the site out. I know if I don't win the giveaway over at Fabulous Fun Finds, I will be purchasing these. How could you not?

CrabApple Tree

I took these pictures the other day of our crabapple tree. Greg's aunt and uncle planted it the day the got married. Don't ask me when that was, I don't remember when they said. But I've been experimenting with my camera lately and love these pictures. I'm even thinking about putting some up on our walls.

Pay it forward

I just joined Pay It Forward. I've seen this button on a few and never really paid much attention to it. I inquired over at quiltedpomegranate. I'm very thankful for Nann's help in this.

Now, here is how it works. Sometime in the next year, I will be the lucky recipient of a handmade surprise from Nann. Then I must "pay it forward" to three others by sending a handmade item to them in the next year. Who? will I send to. Well, this is up to you the readers!!!

The first 3 folks to sign up in the comments section will be my PIF (pay it forward) group. Each of you who signs up must then post to send to 3 others.

Be sure to leave me an email address for you if you do not have a link on your blog. Leave your email on the comment section or email me.

OMGosh it's May!?

I can't believe it's May already. Were did this year go? I know it's been a long time since I've blogged, but I do have an excuse - it's been so nice here. We have had some really great days, so I've been busy outside painting, weeding, mowing, just playing with the kids outside. I even went out and purchased a bike and trailer for the girls. We went on our first bike ride the other day. It really kicked my butt.

I've done a few sewing projects, forgot to take pictures though. I finally finished the girls dress's. I only had to put buttons on them. It took so long to really find buttons I liked. I went to put them on and I couldn't find them. So I got stuck putting some other buttons on it. I can always change them once I find the ones I really purchased for them. Now looking at the pictures and even with the dress on Elizabeth - I should have made her's longer. I will know for next time.

I love getting pictures done professionally of my girls. The last time we went to even try Elizabeth wanted nothing to do with it. Today, she was excellent. I choose to go to Walmart's Pictureme studio. Not bad in price. I was even able to purchase the whole sitting on a disc so I now have copyrights to all the pictures. I did order 1 set of 30 prints that they offered. Unfortunately I was only able to use 1 picture for all 30. So now that I have the cd and the rights, I can go anywhere and get my pictures printed a whole lot cheaper then through Pictureme. Which I really think all picture places are overly priced for prints.
