A favorite

Happy Thursday everyone!!! I hope you are having a good day. Today is an okay day. My oldest has his speech class today so I actually have something I have to do and somewhere to be. That is always a bonus for a sahm of little kiddos.

I also want to brag on my husband for a few. He truly is the best husband I could have asked for. Of course we have our disagreements and such but for the most part, a husband that loves me, our boys and can cook and clean? Yep, that is my husband and I love it.

Why I have to brag? Because on Sunday my youngest had a runny nose so we didn't want to take him to church. Since I kinda HAVE to be there he stayed home with our youngest. I took our oldest and headed off to church. By the time I got back some of my craft stuff was out in the living room.

Again, let me preface, since we moved here almost a year and a half ago I have had a piece of the laundry room to craft in. It worked out great because there were a lot of storage but it was out of the way and my boys would inevitably get into something while I tried to craft. Since we have a long living room and using only about half I suggested we move my stuff out here so my boys can play in the room while I craft and can't destroy my house too much hehehe.

I love it. I have gotten more done out here than I ever did in the laundry room. I can't wait to get it all together and organized. Hopefully I can keep it organized from here on out as well hehehe.

So I guess we should get to my project. I made a scrapbook page. I am not going to go into much on the picture because it really is special to me.

The ribbon on the bottom was an idea I took from a friend. She did something like that with her daughters headband. Seriously she makes the cutest headbands for her daughter. I might have to have her make some IF I ever have a daughter hehehe.

The red circle is a coaster that I sponged with pure poppy ink and then stamped with polka dot basics in palette white and stamped the filigree image from silent night in palette black. The heart is also a chipboard I got from Joann's and stamped with a sentiment from a Target stamp and sponged on the edges with black ink.

The stitching on the bottom was hand stitched because my sewing machine doesn't like paper. I just pierced the holes with a guide and basically embroidered with a sewing needle.

I did notice that I wrote the wrong date on the page. I had to fix that.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
