Mother's Day 2012

I sent both my mother's day cards in the mail on Tuesday & Thursday they both told me they received them... and they opened them.... WHAT???? Mother's Day isn't until Sunday, are they me???? I always open my good mail the moment I get it, it sucks when my birthday cheque is written for my actual day when I open it a couple days early! Well here they are....

 This was for my M-I-L... her favorite color is blue... I love the chipboard stickers! I had to add a little bling with the ribbon :)
 The sentiment is Pink By Design - both sentiments are from 'Our Mothers'

This one is for my mom - her favorite color is pink, so I ran with it! I heat embossed the sentiment also Pink By Design. Added a little ribbon & a paper flower.....

I love this sentiment - also surprise - Pink By Design, from 'Our Mothers' stamp set!
I love this sentiment - it's so the way I feel about my mom!! She is one AMAZING woman!!! Love her to bits :)

To all the mom's out there - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! I wish each of you a fabulous day tomorrow :)

Till next time,

Menu Board

With this whole working outside the home comes big adjustments! Supper is definitely one of them. I'm not home all day everyday to decide what to make, or spend a lot of time prepping. I've been wanting to create a menu board for my kitchen for a few months now. Having to only work 2 days this week, I thought I should get on it.... So I took some time for myself this morning & got my craft on :) I finally made a menu board!! I pinned it quite some time ago & finally had all the supplies I needed... I think it turned out pretty :) 

Now to get with making the menu itself... hopefully I can get that started this afternoon!
I'm sure I'll be on Pinterest a few times to come up with some great ideas! 

I am definitely not a professional photographer, but I'm sure you get the picture :)
I hope this will make dinner around our house a little easier!

 For those who don't know.... I LOVE PINTEREST!!!!! Yep, I've admitted it, so it must be true :)

I've made my mother's day cards & mailed them off, once I know they have been received, I'll post pics. 

I'm off to enjoy a little lunch with my aunt who I haven't had a chance to see since starting work... so I'm sure we will have lots to catch up on! And we all know there is no shortness of conversation unless both our mouths are full at the same time ;)

Till next time,
