This month is quite a milestone for our family,
3 years ago in May we packed up half of our belongings, sold the other half
and moved all the away across the USA from Oregon to VA,
where we spent exactly 1 year and moved to beautiful Tennessee
where we will stay.
travel/move pictures. We traveled 3300 miles with 3 boys in a minivan.
Best and scariest thing we have ever done!
Was it worth it? So far yes...but time will tell :)
Just a sneaky peek as to what I am working on for tomorrow
and yes acrylic is in the mix!
ANDDD I will began my monthly reveals.
So stay tuned tomorrow!
Today I am off to the school again and praying
that the computer guy actually comes to my house and works his magic!
I am missing my SVG's, photoshop and SCAL!
I had SVG's to share but I need my desktop
so be sure to check back, I wll have them done asap!
~Have a great Friday~

Perfect for a quick permanent stick!
Now remember once again LOL
*DISCLAIMER* I am not a card maker! LOL
Ok on to life on the country road.
I had several Facebook requests to see the chickens,
I don't really know why except to watch them get fat! LOL
They are finally accepting the fact I am the food provider.
They have stopped freaking out when I come out in the morning,
now they just look at me like I am crazy and come running for food.
They LOVE baked potato leftovers!! LOL
The gren and orange chickens are nearly all white now,
and they are BOTH ROOSTERS! LOL
Slowly but surely we are weeding out the roosters and let me tell you
when they said 25% will be roosters, they lied!
I don't know what we are going to do with all these dang roosters!
We also have decided to order 2 hens that lay rare blue eggs.
Oh and a quick story....
Last night hubby drive in and came RUNNING into the house, he
yelled "Brad get out here!" I headed out with Brad and the chickens
were in my sunflower patch!!! LOL
Gage had apparently went into the coop and left the gate open,
so they were having a free for all pecking-fest.
We rounded them back up, thank heavens they always stay close.
It was funny and cute, I wish I had thought to snag my camera.
That's all for me today, I need to work on some dresses,
and a video I am hoping!
Oh and gathering up the BIG BOX of goodies for photographing.
I will give you a little preview of the giveaway...
Glue, INK, Paper, Chipboard, TOOLS, and more!!!! I am trying
to figure out how much I can jam pack into a flat rate box!!!
~Have a great day~

We had company today for a BBQ, it was so much fun.
for tornadoes, and quite a heavy downpour.
I did not get much done except make myself a new blog banner.
I had been having so much fun making those spring and summer doorhangers, I thought it would be fun to make myself a new blog banner.
I used the Clearscraps 12X12 acrylic sheets, Helmar 450 qick dry, and vaious papers.
That's about it for me today, busy day, ready for the week to begin!
~Have a great Sunday~

I have NOT had the winners come for the Helmar
or Cri-Kit pen giveaways come by.
IF you won please email me. If not, on Saturday I will choose
2 more winners!
Good morning my friends,
You might be wondering "why in the heck is Pinky posting pictures
of boxes on her blog today??"
Let me tell y'all why. These are just a smidgen of the goodies
I am packing up and bringing to Ketucky on May 22nd!
When I say Imaginisce is generous and amazing I mean it!I am just so excited about the whole thing. The Scrapbook Village
called me yesterday and we set it all up and I am going to stay
Friday night and Saturday night in town, so I will have time to
visit with y'all and have some fun with ya, even after the classes.
My youngest is feeling better but the older one is still struggling with
a bad cough and up all night. Momma is tired but worse yet I feel
so bad for him. He is plum exhausted!
OK here are some SVG files for today.
The first 2 swirls are for your Cri-Kit Pens!
*just click the picture to download*
That's it for me today, I am working on a coupe projects
hopefully I will have time to finish them tonight.
Today I have a couple more dresses to sew and
not one but TWO baseball games with the boys, assuming
they make it through the day without any sick incidents.
Once again, I cannot express how much I appreciate you dropping by
I always sit down at the end of the day and sift through comments.
Leaves a giant smile on my face to know that you find some sort
of scrap fun here. You inspire me every day!
~Have a great Friday~

I had a halfway decent nights sleep last night and boy
it sure makes a difference in your morning doesn't it?!I sat down and worked on this while waiting for the boys to fall asleep last night.
It is Clearscraps Clear N Chip Abbie's Love I made into a mini-album
and the new Imaginisce papers Splash Dance OMG I love it too!!!!
Oh and of course my handy dandy Helmar 450 quick dry
which works FANTASTIC for the albums and my paper
NEVER warps or crinkles...it's perfect.
I also used clear Zapdots for the first time and I love them!
Oh and I wanted to share with y'all.
Everyone asks me where to buy Helmar...
well, a friend of mine has a store online called Timeless Daydreams
and she fell in love with Helmar too, so now she carries it in her store.
Just one more great place to buy the glue and I trust her completely.
Sorry for the poor photo quality, I wanted to get it up today
and there is nothing but rain out there! Now tell me how fun this paper line is! I am so excited, it looks even better
in person too. I will try to get better photographs this weekend :)
Ok I am off to the fabric shop and the local scrap store.
I will have more SVG's tomorrow.
~Have a beautiful Thursday~
~Thank YOU for stopping by~

are sick and Dr. apps, all that not so fun "mom" stuff going on.
If I babble I am just tired this morning.
Ok what is going on with these chickens and what am I up to?
Wellll.....here they are...growing so fast...
I have CHICKEN NEWS!
It is official
of the orange and green chicks you gave us :)
We managed to get the chicken door on last week
we are debating on how to roof it still, tin or shingles?
Also we need to place the nesting boxes and perches inside, which will hopefully
be this weekend. Not sure yet, we have baseball, and company coming.
and paint it a blue color. I decided on this creamy blue OR yellow.
We did dig a sunflower patch in front for our neighbors , so they won't have to
see the chicken coop, BUT surprisingly....they came over and have
decided to raise chickens too!
I did find time to bake a fresh strawberry cake
And in between Dr appointments, I sat down
and chained myself to my sewing machine.
imagine I will spend today sewing :)
It has been a BUSY week but a good one.
Sorry no scrap goodness to share.
I have been scrapbooking with the May SFTIO kit!
HELLOOOOO beautiful kit!~
OK one more thing before a go this morning
a FREE SVG file for you Cricut babies! :)
And I wanted to point out something to you SVG users.
ALL of my files are HIGH quality, not the lower quality files that shake.
So they work well with pens and all that.
