Sorry About That....

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm sorry I haven't been around too much, expect for the occasionally post lately.  Ive been dealing with some non life threatening health issues, and ended up being in the ER for 12 hours yesterday.

I have updated the deadline for the entries on the giveaway post.  And will be back with a vengeance on the diy posts shortly.

In the mean while have fun, and rock on with your bad, sorry think I'm a little loopy still from the pain meds.

Hugs and Kisses,

Playing with toys.

I just wanted to pit up a little post about what we are up to this weekend. Hottie Hobby has a photo shoot of a mall, so we rented a scissor lift. He loves it oh boy, you won't get me up there I'm afraid of heights.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Arrrrrgggg Matey!

So I finally finished little mans birthday invites, and I think they came out super cute and I wanted to share. I oiginally mentioned it here. It took me a little longer than I thought, telling you I would be done this weekend....pssshhhhh.

I actually finished them this morning, during the quiet of little man eating his b-fast, and then playing her in the office on the floor.  I was determined to get these out this week, so I rocked them out (literally) listening to my pandora.  And this is what I cam up with thanks to my new Silhouette, I sooooo love this thing...

So what do you think, I love it! I used the Silhouette file for The Treasure Chest, and Bought the digi stamp for Pirate Luca from Lala Land Crafts.  

His whole party will be something similar to this design and colors.  I will be posting along the way the rest of the details and favors.  

Hugs and Kisses,

He's Turning 3.....(Sob....)

Time goes by so quickly, my little man will be 3 in a couple of weeks, and I'm ecstatic because I get to play with my new Silhouette, but I'm also sad because hes no longer a little baby.

So I wanted to show you all what I have been working on this week.  I found the cutest website called Lala Land Crafts .  We already knew little man wanted a pirate theme as his FAV cartoon is Jake and the Neverland Pirates, not to mention he also walks around all day saying Awww Coconuts! and Arrrrr Matey! gotta love him. :)

And lets face it Momma loves the pirate rock!

Ok Enough rambling, So I bought the Pirate Luca Digi Stamp.  Isn't he just the cutest thing!


See Little Mans hand in there trying to grab one while I'm snapping the photo.

So I started making his invites for our big ol friends and family.  Hopefully, I will finish them all this weekend so that I can show you guys the finished product.  And also some of the other ideas I have for the party.

So other than that, I'm almost completely over the pinched nerve in my neck, YAY!  and Ive been getting back to the Cleaning, Cooking, Washing, and Folding that backed up on me while I was out of commission....BOOOO!

Just on a side note, anyone have any ideas on how else to get your kids to eat veggies, I can sneak puree of Carrots, Zucchini, sweet potato, butternut squash and spinach into him, but pretty much everything else is a no go.  Ive even resorted to smothering it cheese or homemade white sauce, but still no luck.  Maybe I can replace the veggies he wont eat with a fruit that will give him the same nutrients?  What do you guys think.  Needing some advice :)

Hugs and Kisses,
