Just Spring on the Way

Its been pretty cold here - too cold for late March - like still in the 30's and a "snowy mix" is predicted for Friday.  Winter has grabbed on and just won't let go, or so it seems anyway.  But, when I was poking around the yard on Saturday,  I was thrilled to discover a little spring color.....Its fun too, because I have no idea whats going to pop up or where things may be - we moved in in late June so its our first "spring" in the house - just have to ignore that I need a coat, hat, gloves and boots to navigate around and discover!!

These are near the mail box,

These in the back, near the garage,

And these, in the back, below our bedroom window.

I'm really not sure what they all are, but they are just enough to keep the faith that spring is really on its way!

And now, I'm off to meet a friend for breakfast, get a hair cut, head to the gym and then come home and spend the rest of the day creating.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Tuesday!!

Just A Friday Fifties Note Set

Hey and happy friday!! 

I've been playing with my new cartridge.............totally a blast, but honestly, I found myself having to refer to the instructions more than I thought I would have.  The whole "layer" thing was new to me!  I'm not feeling completely Cricut savvy yet, but I will persevere.

I ended up starting with a little note card set............

Totally forgot how fun it was to sew on chipboard...

I've got two more just about done. 

And today, despite the cold (its going to be twenty (20) degrees tonight!!!), this, this morning, was a sure sign of spring for me!!

Enjoy your Friday!!!

Just the Fifties

I  adore all things of the 50's, and bring it into the house whenever and wherever I can.

And I love the television shows.......... The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy, Leave It To Beaver.....................

It looks like the 50's were fun times, simple, and genuine.  I love what the generation represents..

So, moivng on,

I have a Cricut, the smaller, older one. Its actually a replacement one (lets just say its a UPS story............and I ended up with a new one) for the first one I had and it ihas been sitting brand new, unopened in its box for quite some time now. I had been thinking about trying to sell it and maybe get a Silhoutte but, yesterday, I saw this, and all ideas of selling it went out the window.

I just HAD to have it.

LOVE the car (we have a phone like it, only blue), the coke bottle, the Route 66 sign!!   The font looks pretty cool too.   It all just looks so fun!!

And I have a few ideas about what I'd like to do with some of these images, and can't wait to play with this on my day off Tuesday.  Stay tuned!!

Just Hello

on Thursday.  Man, was it crazy busy at work this week.  I had a couple of research assignments that kept me in the office between 9:00 and 6:00 every day.  And in all my years of paralegaling, both were situations that I'd NEVER had to research before.  It was fun, but I'm glad both assignments are done.

I only found a little bit of time for creating.  If you had told me last year that when my Studio Calico kit arrived I wouldn't open it for a few days, I would have thought you were nuts - not so any more.  Now I feel like there just isn't enough time in a day.........

Anyway, here's a peek.

I'm loving Ranger's Glossy Accents again.  There's a few dollops on the yellow flower.

I finally managed to get some "green" going for St. Patty's Day too.

And plowed through this on my lunch hours.......

Next up,

Off to watch American Idol..........

Just Thanks and A Page

So thank you to everyone who stopped by during the OLW blog hop.  It was another fun, inspiring one, full of cool photos and takes on words.  Be on the look out for another one on April 1st.

And oh boy............ Studio Calico's Candy Shoppe, the February kit.  Talk about one little  word:  LOVE

The new label stickers rock - I grabbed some 7 Gypsies rubons from the stash that just seemed to fit wonderfully!!!

And now I'm off to the Macy's one day sale..............

Enjoy your weekend.

Just the March OLW Blog Hop

Happy March 1 everyone!  So glad to be rid of February, and so glad to be that much closer to spring!   And because its the first, the OLW crew is blog hopping again.  Our assignment this month was to take nine photos that captured our word.  I fell behind thanks to that nasty strep I had, but did manage to capture a few snapshots of serendipity. Well, what felt like serendipity to me anyway!!

This day in February I expected to be snowed in, but really.............,

Polka dot pillows and ones that sparkle, too,

Houndstooth fingernails,

This is totally cool,

And this one, I found on line when I googled serendipity,

And hmm........serendipity...... I was pretty thrilled when I saw this!!!!  The marvelous Miss MLE hosts a sketch challenge on the CP blog each month   I love her sketches every time and the other day finally found a little ttime to play with this one.  Its a fab combination -  CP and Miss M's sketches!!  Add it to your March "things to do" list.  And thanks for the shoutout Miss MLE.

So anyway, I now direct you to my fellow OLW'er Lynn.  Have fun!!  There are 44 of us this time!
