flower hats & scrapbook stuff




Man, this week is flying by (as usual). Today is the first day that I've been able to stay home without anywhere to be, so I thought I'd share some stuff. But before that, thanks for all the comments on the girls new room! They love it, and it has stayed quite organized thus far! We'll see how long that lasts...maybe another week if I'm lucky? Haha! Anyways, here are some pictures I took of the girls earlier this week. I was needing some "springy-ness" the other day, so I got out these hats and made my girls pose, once again. Haha!! (Oh, how nice it will be when we can go outside for pictures and playtime!)










And a scrapbook page I did the other night...it was so late and I was exhausted but I totally had the urge to scrapbook. (Having lots of new pictures gets the creative energy going, too.)

(supplies: patterned paper: Basic Grey; mask, stickers, letter stamps, journaling spot, chipboard hearts: Heidi Swapp; ribbon: Paper Source)



And I also forgot to share this little Heidi Swapp mirror album I made last weekend. I had a scrapbook night at my house and this is what I did...just simple and fun!




I love all the layering with clear elements that you can do with the clear inner pages that Heidi's created. So cute! (see the entire album here.)



There, that feels good to get some scrap stuff on the ole' blog again. Besides a couple little projects that I've been working on here and there I am just in full-on nesting mode. I cleaned out the pantry last week and have just been cleaning and organizing things everyday. Yesterday I totally gutted my closet and got rid of two huge garbage bags of clothes...that was awesome. (And the plan is to go shopping once I lose the pregnancy weight, right hubby? hehe.) Anyways, it just feels good to purge and only have what you need...not so much excess. I'm excited to dig in to the "baby stuff"...but I think I'll give myself a little more time till I tackle that job. This weekend is going to be pretty low-key, we have nothing planned and I'm liking that. Maybe I'll even catch a nap one day? I hope so.




Have a happy weekend and come back on Monday to see my "hanging valentine's" that I made this morning. Can't wait to share!
