Project Life 2015 ~ Week 16

A slow but fun week. When I went to get my hair done this week I made a new friend. Andy is 4 months old and spent my whole appointment with me. Tam & I had a great date night at Cypress Inn (one of my favorite places.) On Saturday Mom & I went to Urban Decay's Master Class! We had so much fun and got lots of goodies. When we were done there we went to lunch with Tam and her mom. Afterwards we saw the biggest dragonfly I have ever seen. It was bigger than my hand and so pretty.

Week 16: Technique Tuesday Growing Wild

J's Card

I'm running a bit late getting things on here, but finally here it is. I wanted to make a really soft, pretty card for Tam's Mom's birthday and this Memory Box die helped make it happen. I love Memory Box dies and I hope to have time to play around with some of my others soon. I really like making shaker cards!

Project Life 2015 ~ Week 15

I love spring and getting out in nature. We have some beautiful flowers blooming in our yard and we found a really weird looking caterpillar. We didn't touch him! It seemed like a good time to change up our bedroom too, I love those pillow cases. Logan went shopping with me and was sweet enough to help me remember something I wanted to get later, he's so helpful.

Project Life ~ Week 14

The boys did great their first week here! Beaker is such a sweetheart and Fred is...well Fred. :) I believe Beaker is taken with Logan. We love having them here, even Sasha. Tam surprised me with dye and we colored eggs, so fun. Since Logan had to work a double, Tam took me to the Zoo for Easter. It was a beautiful day.

Last weekend we went to Memphis to visit Beverly & Duane. While we were there Beverly told us we could bring their birds home to live with us. So this weekend we went and picked them up.

This week we went to the first Cullman Exotic Bird and Animal Expo and I fell in love with a 5 month old Buffon's Macaw, such a sweetheart!
