me again!

oh my... another post from me. Looks like taking a few days off from blogging is not such a good idea. I have too much to share. LOL Please forgive me.

Anywho... Alien wanted to see the flower ornament inside the exploding box. I can see a couple more of these inside the box fitting lovely and a nice surprise. We'll see if I can come up with more time, if not... one shall do.

I have been busy the past few days. Besides taking care of my sick daughter, I have been trying to fill up a basket for the PTA basket raffle during Turn Off TV Week (March 7-11 at our school) The exploding box is going in this basket as well as the following items.

I have lost my post it note holder instructions. I am so sad as it was pretty darn cute and used velcro to keep it closed. But I did manage to find two others online. The book one I found at Angie's blog Chic' n Scratch. I adjusted it a bit to fit a full 3X3 pad of post its. The matchbook one I found at SplitCoastStampers. Love that site!! I adjusted the measurements to include a full 3X3 pad as well. I think they both came out cute!! ps. I used scraps on both of these (except the cardstock base)

Here are 5 gift card holders I made. I got the instructions from Jamie at Scrapping Friends. I am not sure where she got them from. So simple and yet so much fun. Again, used up some scraps!!

I made three 2-5-7-10 boxes... birthday, Christmas and Easter themes. I am loving my scraps at this point!! So much fun. And these are fun to make and to fill! These will be empty in the basket. I'm not doing all the work! LOL

These adorable lunch box note cards are from Jackie. I used colored pencils to give them some added life and had a fun time doing it!! These are so cute! I think whoever receives them in their lunch box will have an amazing day!

Next on the agenda is to work on some cards. I am not sure if I will make a card purse or just the cards. I guess we'll see how much time I have to complete this project. Either way I am looking forward to donating this basket. Sure hope it is well received!!

I'm done. I need to get showered and ready for my hair appointment and then to take Alex to Chuck E Cheese for Amy's birthday party (one of his friends at school) Busy kind of mommy day!


  1. Oh wow look at all the wonderful things you have made. Thats going to be one very nice PTA basket.....

  2. Wow McWow too! Simply amazing crafts, my sweetest friend!! Those postit note holders, you've convinced me of the beauty in trying those!! You probably searched and found this one? http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/postitholder/

    I have this particular one bookmarked: http://kimberly-crawford.blogspot.com/2009/02/post-it-note-holder-with-twist-tutorial.html

    Little pencils at the dollar store are dirt nearly-theft cheap. Hafta make some now! I love that we both post things, then if the other hasn't tried it, boom another cool project born! Thank you for that! She's right, this PTA basket will be the envy of everything ever envied since the Garden days!

    Oh, and it doesn't end there! I need to try those 2-5-7-10s!! OMG, been thinkin bout and seeing those too! I rock? Not hardly, not in comparison to vous!

    I have to, have to, have to, MUST get you to totally rockin and turnin to the Nestities!! I will post pictures of how I put my sammiches together with the AlienBug! My mom hugely helped me afford a Grand Calibur at Christmas, and I'd bought these cool Grand Labels, and they're so awesomely big that I can get only the smallest of them to fit in the AlienBug.

    I actually can't WAIT, thinking of all the things you'll do in using your Bug!!
