Butterflies fluttering around our Fairy Duster plant this weekend. Last week we saw a butterfly with fluorscent blue wings, I wish I had thougth of photographing it. You could only see the blue when the wings were open at the right angle-like a Hummingbird.
A few thankfuls tonight
Thankful for the cool weather today.
Thankful for Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. A great read with my son.
Thankful for a nice haircut by Scott.

Creative Bite

This layout is largely Daisy'd products. I'm doing less and less layouts, finding my back starts hurting when I bend over and I like to work standing. Scott has been a huge help doing the dishes -I try not to make too much of a mess-Right! My son wants me to make sugar cookies -I'm thinking rolling, pressing, cutting... and cleaning a floury mess from decoration candies-yikes!
Only about six (I'm hoping for less) more weeks. We're getting very excited to hold a baby - instead of looking at he/she kicks and dances in my belly (though I like that very much).

Heidi Swapp

From Heidi Swapp:
New GLOSSY chipboard. They come in fun colors and shapes like the exclamations, NEW flower shapes, label holders, hearts and my favorite, polka dots!

This folder was made with the glossy chipboard and below we are giving you some step by step instructions on how to create this fun project:

1. Start with a pink file folder cut in half.
2. Format the word "seriously" in your favorite font on your computer. Print directly on the file folder letting the word hang off onto the tab part of the folder.
3. Embellish folder with pink glossy chipboard flowers.
4. Insert notebook paper (pink of course!) and stitch in place inside the folder.

Now you instantly have a place to jot down your notes and inspirations. Enjoy!

I think these kind of quick & small projects are fun to get the creative juices flowing. Cover a notebook, make a card...use lots of cool embellishments and leftover pieces of paper to make something out of the ordinary.
