New Stuff

I just listed some new goodies in the shop.

*Groovy Circles" Tags

"Spring Anticipation" Tags

I also had the idea for this *days of the month* set in the middle of March, but did not list them. I was thinking it would be a cute mini-album/daily journal, but it was too late to list it for March. Maybe I will get some other months listed, could be cool for summer vacation, *oh my goodness* that is upon us isn't it? Any ideas on other ways this could be used, leave me a comment.

Day 25

*Day 25* Hello, My name is Mallory and I don't sleep.

I snapped this about 30 minutes after we had put her to bed. Her room was pitch black so I just held the camera over her bed to get the shot. (oh how I love my new camera).

Day 24...Artichokes for dessert?

*Day 24*

OK, Lindsey wanted me to *steam her an artichoke for dessert* last night.?. Here I am cutting myself a piece of David's leftover *yummy* birthday cake with some ice-cream and she wants an artichoke. I think I could learn from her example, esp. if I want to shed the rest of this baby weight. I so *love* her.

Days 15-23

Day 11

*Day 11*

Scrappy time

Lindsey and I have had some serious crafty/scrappy time today and yesterday. I have done many scrap layouts over the past few years, but have been real weird about posting them for just anyone to see, I guess I am not real confident in my *scrapping* abilities. I so *love* paper and all the *yummy* stuff that goes along with it, I have loved paper, stickers, art supplies ever since I was a kid, just ask my Mom. My brother always made fun of me because while he was scoping out the toys at whatever store we were at, I was scoping out the school/office/art supply aisle.

OK so this is one of the first posts with one of my layouts, about one of the best subjects *ever*, my girls.

The photos were taken last August when my Mom was in town for visit. We took the girls around town looking for cool spots to take pictures. Lots of fun!

This is one of Lindsey's layouts, she has discovered Hambly. *ohmygoodness*. (I took her to our local scrap store last week, YIKES! She has been cranking out some really cool stuff. She has quiet the knack for scrapping. This is one of her more simpler layouts:

Photo was taken by my friend Marci Lambert, the best photographer EVER!!

Try this!

I made this on Sunday, so very YUMMY! A fresh twist on salsa.

Grape-Mint Salsa

Prep: 15 min., Chill: 1 hr.

2 cups green seedless grapes, coarsely chopped
2 cups red seedless grapes, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 whole jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped (for less of a *bite* only use 1/2)
Sugared Pita Chips (I served with regular tortilla chips for that sweet/salt combo)

1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl; cover and chill at least 1 hour. Serve with Sugared Pita Chips or regular tortilla chips.
This is how mine turned out.

The recipe is from the March 2008 issue of Southern Living, if you have the magazine it is on page 123.

Days 9 -10

*Day 9* Molly our rotten Corgi, OK I'll admit it she is cute, and she adores Lindsey!

*Day 10* Some reading in the afternoon.

Days 6-7-8

OK, the pictures were taken just not posted. It's been a busy week *peeps* (Mom, that is slang for *people*, Lindsey taught me that).

*Day 6* (at church/Mally's daycare Spaghetti dinner/Art show)

*Day 7* after it started snowing:

*Day 8* same tree/fern as yesterday, but a little more snow.

I am on vacation next week, Lindsey is out for Spring Break. WOOHOO!

Day 5 of 31

The ever so *cute* Miss Mallory!

I have been playing with some PS Actions, this one has a vintage feel to it.

This is the original photo:

Day 4 of 31

This is Lindsey doing some creative Spelling homework. They get to choose from a variety of assignments to complete their four points for Spelling each week. One of the choices is called *Sound Words*, where you record yourself spelling out your words. This is a good starter for studying your words, speaking aloud always helped me when studying as a child (well it still helps when I am writing storyboards at work to hear how they sound after I write them, yes I look like I am talking to myself, but so far I have not gotten any strange looks from my co-workers). The Sound Words are worth three points, so we still have one point to go before Thursday. Lindsey uses a sound recording tool on her computer to record the words since we no longer have a tape recorder, not that she knows what that is anyway, she was born the the age of *CDs* now it is all about her iPod. (no the cel phone you see in the picture is not activated, it is my old phone she uses to play games , come on, she is 8 people)

Day 2 of 31

This is what happens on the ride home after a weekend with PaPa Rick and Grandma Karen. I had barely made it out of town and I look back and see this. She slept for the 45 min ride home, I snapped the shot after I pulled into our driveway (slept through that too).
