Elegant Lines...

Here's a card I made for my Sister's Bridal Shower this weekend. I hope she loves it!

I {big fat squishy heart} love those basic pearls from Stampin UP!

She says she stalks my blog but I bet she's pretty busy this week so here's hoping...fingers crossed!

Peg!! I thought I lost you.

Imagine my horror when I went to visit Peg last night and her listing was gone! GONE!! Ahhhhh! (You can read about my new house wanderings here.)

We had decided that I wouldn't call the realor until our home sold, or was at least on the market but... yep, you guessed it, I called her this morning.

Photobucket (I didn't take this's horribly fuzzy, I know. I borrowed it from here.)

The house is still available, it's just off the market for a bit I guess. Last I checked, it had been on for nearly 500 days so maybe they are just taking a break!

Wishes for my New Home... I'll call her Peg.

I follow a girl called MeganDVD on a blog called Beauty in the Attempt. She's house hunting (check here, and here for a few) and it got me to thinking... I should make a Wish List for my new home. I am a first time home buyer; JJ had our house when we met. When he was 21, he bought the first house he was shown...turns out he did pretty well. Let's just say we both would like to do a little shopping this time.

Anyway, I decided to call my new home Peg (because she doesn't have to be fancy except through my mind's eye) and here are some of the wishes I have for her and I.

1. Split bedroom floor plan (the kid's room away from ours...away from the living space)
2. A front porch
3. A mantle. Note, I didn't say a fireplace... that would be ok, but the mantle is what I wish
4. A bigger kitchen to make my JJ happy
5. Outdoor living space or the potential for such
6. JJ would like an outbuilding/shed...or we could just have the space for such building to ensue
7. I would like for my main entry for guests/front door to not open right into our family room (I guess that means I would like a foyer of sorts)
8. My kitchen/everyday dining area to be where the main TV doesn't bother us from sitting and chatting.

What do you think? If you were shopping for a new house, what would be on the TOP of your list.

And... I have a favorite...all picked out...but it's a leap because it needs some serious love!!!

Cooper's Third Birthday

Today would have been Cooper's third birthday; this is his second birthday in Heaven.

While our hearts are still broken, what a joy it is to know that there is a God in Heaven and he knows and loves each one of us if we will let him. In honor of Cooper, I made his Momma, my BFF Leslie, this card.


I punched out the head and added some 3-D dots for height.
I also frayed the end of the twill tape...sort of had to because I forgot to add it before I secured the front and I could only get one side lose enough to get the tape down...Improvise!!
