This is gonna be a long one...

I've come to the conclusion that it's not as easy to update the ole' blog when the weather is near 80 and sunny! I'd much rather be outside or *shock* cleaning my house. They're something about cleaning when the weather is nice, I open all the windows and let the fresh air in! Makes everything all bright and yummy! Anyway, due to the lack of prompt updates this one's going to be fairly huge. I have a ton of pictures to share, my poor husband begged me all week to upload pics and I just ran out of time. Of course, he'll be home today so there's no point in hurrying now...

Well, how about I start with my scrappy creations with the Crop Addict April kit. This kit was SO much fun, lots of scrappy goodies from American Crafts, Dream Street, Bazzill, May Arts ribbon... the list goes on. These kits are seriously packed and they sell out pretty fast so if you want in on the fun be sure to head over and nab one before they're gone! Without further adeiu...







I had fun working with this kit. I had a little creative block for a while since I was sick (it's really hard to scrap while you're sick, btw) but I like the end results! I thought part of my creative block could be the fact that my scrap space was a complete black hole, so disorganized and cluttered. I found some new wire baskets and splurged on the clip-it-up and it has made SUCH a difference! Even just looking at my clean, organized space has my creative juices flowing! What do you think???






I love it! I'm sure it won't look that good for long but I'm really going to try to keep it nice. There are just a couple other things I want to get but I need to work in my new space to see how it will all play out, know what I mean!?

Can you believe that my little guy is 15 months old today! Seriously, where has the time gone?? We had to run outside today because my neighbors little dog was loose and pawing at our fence. I was going to keep her in our yard because I didn't know if they were home, her name is Charlotte and she's a little black schnauzer puppy. Ari saw her, pointed and said "dog", it was the cutest thing! I'm so amazed and proud that he recognizes things and is learning new words. Now if we could just get him to eat "people" food... We're still plugging away at that. He has his 15 month check-up on Monday, I'll be sure to let you know the latest statistics! I'll leave you with these pics of him playing the other day, he looks like such the little man! I have to finish cleaning my house, Tara and Hannah are coming over for dinner tonight and we're taking the kiddos to the playground as soon as Ari's up from his nap. Enjoy your day, I know we will!!!






Oh, and if you've made it this far leave a comment and I'll send a little scrap RAK. I have a ton of stuff to get rid of from my spring cleaning, it may as well go to a good home. Don't worry, I won't send junk... it will be good!!! How about I'll pick a random winner Sunday night and send it out Monday! Happy Friday!

Hey girl ! I totally agree on the blog updates, i have been SOOOO bad lately ! I may as well wait until after the all day crop i have tomorrow . I also got the AMM tool tote at Target, they only had pink at mine, and as most things in NJ , was more expensive ! Mine was 24.99 , ugh ! U and the hubs are Family Guy fans i see ? My hubby loves that show, i gathered that from the CHILAXIN , lol ...... Love the layouts ! I also am the other woman to that darn laptop, its SOOO frustrating ,lol ..... Go back to the dentist on tuesday, no fun there, although this is just to schedule . Darn old fillings ! Fillings are supposed to LAST ! lol .....
Ok, nothing packed for said crop that is in a few short hours. I think the space looks great, i agree that those little things made a HUGE difference ! I LOVE my Clip it Up too !!!! Im so stinkin nervous about this dental work, i am SO not a fan , i better not know what is going on !
Sorry for the short rant ! lol .... Have a great Sunday !
Jenn :)
