What a fun Weekend

This past weekend was so much fun. The kids and I had a weekend getaway that really had us busy but having just the greatest time. On Saturday we went to Mall of America.

Fresh off the hotel shuttle and ready to shop!

Of course we mostly did the rides!

Doesn't Ella look ready behind the wheel?

Photo op at the Sea Life Aquarium at the mall. Dylan was hamming it up by the jellyfish.

On Sunday we went to my friend's home is Wisconsin where the kids were loving the Wii. We don't have one of those yet.

This upcoming weekend is going to be fun too.

Emboss Resist video

Getting ready for our city wide garage sales next week so once again, nothing crafty to share but.....my newfound obsession with crafty YouTube videos provides me with a post today. Emboss resisting with Nichole Heady from Papertrey Ink. :) Just a fun little video to inspire some creativity!

Have a wonderful day!

How they make wood block stamps at Hero Arts

I thought since I didn't have anything crafty to share today, I would find something! I thought this video was neat and I can't believe a poor woman is hand cutting the rubber stamped image all day. Can you imagine how that feels after a long shift?

Altered envelopes over at The Scrappy Tree

I just wanted to share a couple of little projects I made over the weekend. I used Maya Rd. kraft envelopes for them and I shared the instructions on my post over at The Scrappy Tree.

I had a lot of fun with these and I hope to make some more soon!
