Badges For Sale

May I see your license please? Ha just kidding! Here are a few picture holders (aka badge holders) that I made. I am going to put them in the shop . If anyone is interested email me and I will make you some. They are designed to put pictures into the additional sleeves and hang on a diaper bag , purse, backpack, keyring, etc.. Great little Christmas presents/ stocking stuffers, or great for teachers presents too. Let's not forget daycare workers need great little pick me ups as well, (don't forget us women at home and in day cares with your children!) The teens and little children in your life that want to carry pictures of family members or friends with them would love them too. Included in each picture holder set is 4 cards front and back with a ring to clip on to your bag. Each set can hold 7 photos, wallet size or smaller. Each one for only $5 (no 2 will be exactly alike).

Advent Calendar My Way

First of all I have decided that for photography purposes I have to repaint at least one wall in my house white. After running through the house looking for a wall to hang this silly thing up on to snap a picture, I realized I don't like white. Brown, black, yellow even purple, pink, and lime green, but no white anywhere. I even stepped outside and very quickly decided that was not going to happen, IT IS COLD out there!! So the pics are bad but you get the point I made an advent calendar.

Do you want to hear a secret??? I found some old white jean capris of my girls and used one of the legs for the background and then went out to the fire pit and got a stick for the hanger and rummaged around to find scraps of fabric to make the rest. Jeeze am I cheap or thrifty and money cautious? Just wondering your opinion.
I used a soft felt for this album and used light blue, soft pinks, and greens for pages on the inside. Thanks for looking. Have a great day.

Girls Weekend Getaway

After many years of trying and never happening we finally did it. We, myself (Kelly) , Toni (my sister), Lindsy (my daughter), and my Pauline (my mom) all meet up in Lake of the Ozarks. Our Aunt and Uncle let us borrow their condo and laugh the nights away. A special thanks to Aunt Lee and Uncle Larry for the great place to stay and to all the men and kids for giving us up for one weekend to enjoy ourselves. I know there is a special girl missing, Kaelie. She decided to stay behind and go to the school semi-final football game and cheer them on in the spiiting snow adn 20 degree weather. The game did not turn out the way they had hoped but she had a great time. She also intended to go hunting but that had to wait until this next weekend they forgot to get up early Sunday. See what happens when moms away. They all sleep in too long and miss out.

Football and the Brown Paper Bag

I have beena busy little bee while the computer was down. I have an obsession with making paper bag albums. Yes, they are made out of brown lunch bags. This one is for Devin's football season he wrapped up in middle school. I like little mini books because I have a short attention span and can do one theme and move on to the next book and theme. Do they have a group for brown paper bag addicts with short attention spans?

I found some little sayings and thought I would share the fun with you. I found more but here are just a few that I liked. As you can tell my family is nuts and keeps me on my feet. We are not a sane bunch by a long stretch! Anyway enjoy and have a great day!

I am back and they are CHAMPS

So let's see many moons ago I had this computer and it would do what I asked then came along a "worm" and crawled through all the little files and closed down any options of opening up pictures or programs. Yes we sere hit and hit hard! Thank GOD a friend is smarter than we are and could salvage my pictures from behind the geat black screen we had. We are fixed and still reloading programs but thought I should explain that I did not indeed die, just my computer did and am living amnd breathing again to post daily boring things that interest me and go on and on about how great my kids are. Well enough jabbering I am off to watch the little ones run thru the house. Check out Devin's website at Kaelie's website will be up and running in the next few weeks!
