I'm Back!

Kitchy Cherry Crown

My daughter- She's up to something don't ya think?

My husband and son

Retro Birthday Crown

Wow I have been really lazy about posting, well it wasn't on purpose! I have been super busy. Just got back in town from a wedding my SIL and we were gone for a week only to find when we get home we must leave again for a funeral. It has been a whirlwind two weeks to say the least. So I am making up for lost time by getting my butt in gear and whipping up some new goodies for my site. It seems everyone wants a cupcake hat so along with some new party hats I have gone paper crown crazy! I just cannot get enough! Plus they are sooo fun to display until they find a new home! I am trying to burn through some of my paper stash and make more one of a kind creations to list. I love custom work too so don't get me wrong, it just seems my studio has been over run with paper and now is spilling into other rooms and tables in home. My poor children wouldn't know what a real table top looked like. Not to mention my husband. He is kind about it though, I think he has just accepted my paper addiction.

I hope everyone out there is enjoying this lovely summer weather, I went out the other day with my kiddos and got burned. Yes me! I have a nice natural tan complexion but since I haven't really been out in the sun in years I was red and peeling. It was a little embarrassing but my husband assures me a little vinegar and I will be fine. Wow I am really painting a pretty picture with my words today, you now know my secret addiction and how it is invading my home and now you can picture the smell of vinegar swirling around!!! Ok maybe I should talk about the lovely wedding.

My SIL- Husbands sister was married Saturday my son was the ring bearer and it was interesting to say the least! He did a lovely job of carrying the pillow but once he was upfront he just couldn't stand still. He was bending over, kicking the wall to a beat only in his head, dancing around etc. My SIL was gracious and I don't think she even noticed but I sure did it may be the last time someone ask us to be involved with a wedding. My daughter got a kick out of pointing out all the people up front, she was in need of a nap but at least she was quiet! I will leave you with some pics of my creations.
