Weekly challenge: purge!!!!

It's time for spring cleaning!!!!  The girls and I are setting out five bins for cousin William, one for cousin Lucy, one for a garage sale, one for Goodwill and one for keeping.  My goal: by the end of the week, each bin shall be full!  I plan on (hahaha, sorry, I'm already laughing because I know how often "plan to" actually translates into an accomplished fact!) going through craft papers, my closet, the girls' closets' and shoe bin, toy bins, etc.  Wish me luck and if you have any purging ideas, please share them!!!!

Have a great week!

Rene :D

There's a dresser here somewhere...

And after...

Hey!  There it is!

Weekly challenge!

Ok, this week's challenge is all about slooooowing down.  Most days I feel like we rush, rush, rush, rush around here (primarily because we have to in order to get anything done!  Lol!).  It's stressful and exhausting.  So this week I am planning ahead...clothes out the night before, laundry by the washer in
pre-sorted loads, snacks set out in bags for the week so we can just grab and go, etc.  If you have any ideas on how to keep it together ahead of time, I would LOVE to hear them!  I'd love to actually meander in the morning instead of running around like a chicken with her head cut off! 

Have a wonderful week!

New leftie journal!

Ok southpaws, you know how difficult it is to write in a spiral bound notebook.  For years, I have been altering them to create a "left-handed"'s just a notebook from back to front instead of front to back.  Here is mine for 2012...a little late in the year but that's ok!  I love how it turned out!  Now I'm off to finish the inside and back...then I'll be ready to journal! 

Anyone for Anya: sketch
Sweet Stampin' Pixies: spring (yeah for pastels!)
TGF: circles and scallops
Paper Sundae: photo
All Sorts: 3 in a row (twine and flowers here)
Fussy and Fancy Friday: fairies!  I love this little image from All that Scraps.
Papertake Weekly: BINGO (ribbon, free space, punched shapes-flowers)

Thanks for stopping by and happy Tuesday!

It's time for another challenge at Cupcake Inspirations and this week our sponsor is the fabulous Di's Digis!  If you've never stopped in for a peek, you should!  Go, run, hurry!  Her images are so adorable and SO affordable!

Here is the photo for this week's challenge:

Seriously, who could eat these beautiful cupcakes?  They're like little works of art and I'd just stare at them...for about 30 seconds and then I'd devour!  Lol!  The girls and I LOOOOOVE cupcakes!

Here is my creation:

Could I have thrown any more color into this card?  Lol!  I've been so inspired by spring with the beautiful week we've had!

Happy Sunday and thank you for stopping by!

Weekly Challenge!

Since last week's challenge was deep and introspective, this week shall be shallow and superficial!  ;D
This week I challenge you to organize a favorite place...scrap table, reading nook, along the bathtub where you enjoy long, luxurious soaks (yeah right, lol!)!  I plan on cleaning up my scrap table tomorrow...maybe I'll be ambitious and take pictures!

Honestly, this isn't all that superficial.  I am always amazed at how much more creative I feel in a clean space.  For those of you who are meticulously organized, congratulations!  I never have been and always have wanted to be!  I honestly envy you!

Have a wonderful week!

Rene ;D

Update: here are some before and after's suppose to rain Saturday so I'm hoping to get even more done!

Hopefully you can tell the before from the after!  Lol!

I was feeling super ambitious today so I created an art wall in the craft/computer/guest room.  The girls are always making pictures and I want to display and encourage their creativity so I plan on filling the entire wall!
