Hey there happy hump day!

I went crazy this month with Resist Stamping on my Avocado Arts
projects- here are 2 of the resist cards I created :) 
It was the perfect stamp set to play with and I love the results. 
A couple more angles for detailing :) 

Loved sewing and stamping on the acrylic!

Have a great week friends and check out AA!

Good morning crafty friends, 
Hello Tuesday...and hello NEW stamp set! :) 

This new Avocado Arts stamp set called A Mother's Love
is simply amazing. I had to make a joke about Mother's being like Buttons
because it's such an adorable sentiment. :) 
I created this vintage style card using a gift package from a friend
with some Xyron and Quick Quotes.
Check out the blog today for my other cards
This is the full stamp set and trust me YOU NEED IT! I love this. 
Great for Mother's Day coming up. :)
Happy Crafty Tuesday friends!

Mom Brag Post~

Ok this ones not crafty friends :) 
Happy Monday I wanted to share a few photos I took of my son at his 
girlfriends prom this weekend. 
It is his senior year and all those special events are happening. 
I was able to take some shots before they left and I know 
some of you have seen them on Facebook but I wanted to share the rest on my blog. 

Can't believe he is 18 and going to college!
Seems like yesterday he was 2 and started calling me MOMMY
I celebrated his 3rd birthday with him and took on being his mom from
the first time I met him...I am so lucky to have been a part of his life. 

Thanks for indulging my non-craft post today~

Hey there friends, 
Happy Tuesday right? I have fun news this week...the launch of my 
photography business. I am definitely the reluctant photographer. 
Don't get me wrong I LOVE taking photos, but I didn't want to be one of 
those "faux-tographers"so I took my time and took classes and
finally felt the time was right. 
 After some pushing and prodding from friends I decided it
was time to jump in full time and be more independent.
 I wanted to share my new website with you all...
If you are local please check out my photos and recommend me.
I am excited about this new venture and very excited for a new chapter
to add to my crafty life! :)
