Birthday Box Workshop

I have had this idea of a perpetual calendar and box to hold your cards in my head for a long time and I finally came up with it! I am pretty proud of how it turned out. I came up with the idea because I was frustrated with the storage of my cards. I never really knew how many I had and often times would go to get a card and wouldn't have one or one that I like for that loved one.  Then I am scrambling to get one made before I need to give it them. So...this is my solution! I hope it works....it's a box with 12 dividers, one for each month and on the divider it is numbered to how many days are in the month. On the day of someone's Birthday I then write there name. Behind the divider I put my card and envelope for that person. So it's all ready to go. I can make the cards month's a head of time and never have the panic of if I have a card again! So here are some pictures....

The best part is...it's going to look real cute on my shelf in my scrap room! If you want to make one of these and live in my neck of the woods..I will be doing workshops May 11,12, and 13 in the day and evening. The cost is $15. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to sign up to make one!

it's the simple things....

This week has not been the most fun with sick kids...but I really found something that makes me really happy! It's quite simple...my new laundry detergent! Not only does it wash good...but when I do laundry it makes my whole house smell so yummy! Thank You Gain....for reminding me it's the simple things that should make us happy!

Rag Quilt Bags

Here is my new creation! They are super easy and really fun to make!!! Shhhh...don't tell I am kind of addicted to making them!

I am going to do a workshop making these in the next month or so! They are the perfect size for scriptures or to take your lunch for work. I think they are great idea for a Mother's Day gift. Let me know if you want to make one!

Opening Day

Last Saturday was Opening Day for our little league baseball season. That might not seem like any big deal to many...but to a little boy in our house it was! Gavin was so excited! This year our league changed to a official Babe Ruth league and a lot of people have put in a lot of hard work to make this happen. We are grateful to them for all there hard work to make baseball in our little community a little bit better for each child that plays. With the changes they did a parade and we got to decorate our truck and show off our cute (i mean tough) Red Sox's team! I think it will be a day that each of these boys remember!

Easter Eggs!

Just a few pictures from Easter Egg dying this morning. The boys loved dying eggs this year and they were all old enough to do it...so it made it super fun!

Our Newest Family Member

Meet Homer! This is our newest family member. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would have a donkey. But I also never knew that I would marry a cowboy! I am sure glad I did....it's definitely an adventure. Thursday we got a call from Ry's Dad saying that a guy (Rudy) that Ryan roped with last Saturday called and asked if Ryan would like a burro (donkey). Little did he know that Ry has spent countless hours on KSL looking for one and this one was free! I guess they are great to practice roping on! So first thing Friday morning we went over to Rudy's and picked up Homer. He is old and gentle and I don't know who loves this little donkey more...me, Ry or the kids...he is a great addition to our family!
