Can anyone spare some change??

This Lion coverup has been in the boy's closet for a couple of years and we have tried to get Smylie to wear it..he LOVES animals..yet, has not been a fan of the coverup...until now...Yay!! I think it is a better fit than the 2T tiger costume (all one piece) from when he was 17 months old...that he wore for 2 days straight (a few weeks ago)..(actual size of said child to the big boy section...:(..)and then had some minor body part issues resulting from his new found love of dressing up!!
Yeah...the lion is a much better fit!

And look at his tracing...fine motor...skills...this kid loves drawing on his magna doodle....

Well done Angel Boy!!

...and this was so funny to me on Thursday... an activity that Miss Kathryn brought...i love how the girl has actual lips...sassy!

In the shop!!

This cute set of cards made their way into the shop yesterday!!

They can be used to tell your friends and family (well, 10 of them atleast...)that you have just moved!! Or save them as a house warming gift as a set, or use them one at a time each time you are welcomed into someone's home!! I plan on making more of these..they were so fun to make...and there are so many options for colors and patterns and embellishments!!

These are not in the shop!!! They are sweet Sammy's shoes after

school.... He enjoys the sand!!! I just love his sweet little shoes..all dirty from his long day at school....all that learning..all that growing....he is doing SO well and transitioning to the new routine in an amazing way!! He does have some pretty incredible ladies...His Ladies..shall we say...that are pretty smitten with him as well...

and let me just say...with a slice of embarrassment....last night was the FIRST night in 3 years that our little family has eaten the same thing together at the same time!!! Hooray for tortellinies!! Sam usually only eats ziti type noodles...Myles doesn't eat pasta...and i did not alter any of the meal for anyone!! It was such a treasure!! Sammy sat the whole time...

it was like our small little miracle!! Should we have tortellinies tonight too???....Making food my whole family will eat is such a happy, satisfying time for me!! i can't wait for it to happen again!!

Okay..not quite in the shop yet...but here i go........

This one too....go see...the shop is getting full!!
and Friday...a little sale...
have a love-fully!!

Good to know...and good to remember

This week's chocoholic fix is these scrumptious morsels!!
...don't forget...they are great for a little snack whilst you blog!!

This was amazing to me!!I have always loved these treats..especially at the movies...and now they are even more my favorite dark chocolate...and they are secretly good for me!!!

Did i go a little overboard on the pictures here??

This new sweet collection will be arriving tomorrow...well, the collection so far is one set of these adorable cards....i just love them...mostly because of...

Smylie has been making these pictures at OT...and i am in love with the simple-ness of them...he cut out (with some help) the shapes and put them all together to make this sweet home!!

So..sets of cards are on my to do list for now... wish i was moving..i would get them for myselfy!!! to my shop!! Look at these!!! These Falling for You frames are adorned with my Joxlettes....and look at the beautiful centers!! Handmade buttons!!Oh mY!! My friend Jes from Kadyhope made them for me..and i just could not resist putting them on these Joxlettes!! Jes makes the most charming clay pieces...Handmade goodness..from stones, to buttons, to tiny cottages and cards too.... she is amazing!

Here is another lookee...a sweet frame..or a dry-erase-type piece for sweet noties to your loved ones!!

Is fabric edible??

And look at these two yummy wreaths...not for sale...what do you think??? one is a giftie...and one is a meee-ie.....the bottom one was just yellow for spring..but i added the chocolate tulle and boy did it transform into my new favorite fall wreath...'s my only fall wreath..but still...

Okay...go check out my etsy shop....and Jes's shop

Thank you so much for all of your commenting! It was a week filled with excitement...and heart palpitations...but i am getting the hang of posting new stuff... and the crazy dance of this life as a Wife and Mommy and Friend and Entrepreneur!!!! Oooh fancy! and hard!! But Blessed! So...Thank you for peeking in on me and my creations...i LOVE making things with my hands...
and am so rewarded by a completed project...and the oohs and ahhs of sweet friends and family like YOU!!!Makes me happy!

and speaking of what makes me HAPPY!!! This meal is so Delish!!! Chicken Soup with Buttermilk Biscuits!!We found it in our COTTAGE LIVING magazine last year...and it was so great!! i had to make it this week!!! mmmmmmmmm!

So...i saw these in the grocery store...YOU KNOW WHICH ONE.. and NEEDED them!! yes...NEEDED!!

MMMM! mmm! oooh! mm!ah! mmmmmm!mm!slobber!drool!

Don't worry..i didn't eat them all at once... there are plenty left!

Want some???!!

And more of what makes me happy!!! This picture should not have turned out..because i can't seem to figure out my simple camera...BUT it did!! I love pictures with crazy motion in them!
Even if they are blurry...this life goes by so fast..and sometimes it seems like it is all a get it to still for a moment is like a giftie to me...

and this makes Sweeetums happy!! He is at OT here... this is his preference for the netting to be all up in his face...???...i don't know!!

I lift up my eyes to the hills-

where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

The Maker of heaven and earth!

Psalm 121:1&2

now..the heart palpitations....what a juggling act this is... Our Sammy goes to school next week...Wednesday...his 3rd Birthday! and we are so glad for IS the BEST for him!!

It IS where he will THRIVE!!! it IS the MOST WONDERFUL classroom...and SHE IS the PERFECT teacher!! (seriously..she is)...but i have been asked so many times lately..." So..what are you going to do with all of your time???..."...and although that may seem like i should be this overwhelming sense of relief and indulgence would sweep over me... in my heart i feel as if i am losing my most favorite job....ever!!

I will no longer have the privilege of being captivated by my boys all day!!! in Sammy learning more than the 3 signs he knows..that we have worked so hard on....or his first we have waited...i want to be there to hear his voice...maybe even say the precious time when he needs a little squeeze and some kisses...and then he goes and plays until he needs some more love...from me... now his sweet teachers will have the indulgences of my sweet boy...the touch of his tiny little boy hands leading them all around that fantastic room as he discovers new and exciting things about this world....and the playground will have the sweet privilege of his belly on the swings soaring high as he fills the air with the sound of his giggles!!! Oh...what will i do??? The first day i will be sitting in the parking lot with hubs...we have plans to indulge ourselves a little during their playtime....they play at the same time...and we hope to capture those moments...our tiny treasures...oh, please pray for my heart to withstand this pressure...just a couple more days...

What ever will i do with my time???

Have a Love-fully day!!

I sure will!

"Falling for You"

It's here!!
Love is officially..well, almost, in the air...
I am off to Etsy right now!!
It will probably take me all day to get the loot up,
so check back in for new stuff all day!
My prayers are with those families on the coast...
and their loved ones..
Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind.
Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.
Genesis 9:14-15
I hope everyone has a Love-fully day!
