new books!

I was finally able (and movtivated) to finish these two books I've been working on FOREVER.

I tried something new this time and rounded the corners of my bags. I guess it looks cute, but I don't think I'll do it again. It was an experiment! It wouldn't stay closed so I added red ribbons to the sides. I think it makes it look more Christmas-y, like a little present! I didn't use a traditional cardinal red/hunter green color scheme in this book. My inspiration for the whole thing was this one piece of paper from basic grey's dasher line. I love the olive green, pale blue and pinks-not your regular Christmas stuff! :)

The second book is a girly one-yay! For some reason I was imagining pictures of a girl who is in 2nd or 3rd grade going in it...I don't know any 2nd or 3rd graders so I'm not sure why! It's got three spots for journaling and little bits of sparkle here and there. Not too girly, just enough!

Cute Christmas Ideas

These hand towels are from and they're super cute! They're also $18.50 each! WTF! I would never pay that much for a hand towel but if someone else wants to, more power to ya.

And for something completely different, this delicate and beautiful handmade wall hanging is from stink bone jones! Is that a fun shop name or what? It's a personalized gift-and they're only $10. She also does these gorgeous hand painted onesies...and they're for boys! I'm always excited to find something fun and handmade for little boys. It does not happen every day!

I LOVE this pillow! I'm way too old to be having stuff that says "Princess" laying around, but the colors & fabrics are just SO YUMMY!!!! It's by Molly McCormick and I want it.

This pretty jewelry organizer is from Urban Outfitters and it's only $20. I'm always detangling necklaces so I might have to add this one to my personal wish list. It's online only btw.

Okay I don't even play video games and this makes me want to start. It's a pink Wii! It's under $100 w/free shipping from light in the box. That site has some really great bargains!

new 12x12 layouts

I've actually been scrapping for myself the past couple days. I haven't done that in a loooong time; I'm usually either working on custom orders or stuff for my etsy shop. Now that I have a couple of layouts done I'm itching to print out more pics and keep going!
