Happy Birthday to the Sweeet Susie Q! You all know her from her awesome her awesome scraplift site. I hope you have an AWESOME birthday girl! :) LOVE YOU! :)
Okay some cool new shabbies coming soon! :)
Shabby Hubby's birthday was yesterday! :) So we had quite a full day. :) Went to church, played with lil friends. Then we went to run errands, find a few shabby thing and headed to Costco to get a few things. :) The boys had to have a Costco hot dog for lunch and miss priness a slice of their cheese pizza. :)
Then we came home. :) Pulled weeds...LOL...cleaned up while the boys napped. :) After an afternoon of reorganizing, cleaning and all that fun stuff, we headed out for Chris' birthday dinner. :) Fresh Choice resturant, our favorite but we go because the kiddies LOVE to eat there. :) They love to just graze all that yummy food! LOL Especially because they get to have dessert. LOL We ate dinner, walked around the mall and went to a carnival in town. The kids had so much fun and played a few games and won some prizes. :) Then we headed home to open some gifts and eat cake.
And last night I scrapped! LOL I really miss it and need to start waking up EARLY to do some more pages. Totally looking forward to summer so when the babies sleep in, I can get up and scrap! :) Of course miss Gina Wina came out with some new awesome felties! LOVE these! So I created this from a photo I got yesterday of Chris and his kiddies. :)
Well I hope you all have one fantastic day! There is soo much we have to do now it's not even funny! :) School is ending so tons to do! :) Have a fabulous holiday!
Are you all going shopping this weekend? I love this place and it is where you can find all these goodies! Gosh the little ruffled apron for Chayce would be sooo darling! She loves to help me bake. I just looove looking at pretty things! Hope you do too.
So the boys are napping finally! LOL Soooo, I hope several of you are onto Gina's Guest Team gallery! Tons of amazingly beautiful pages! Seriously, you girls are soooo talented!
Okay I am off to get tons more done! I am truly hoping to scrap more! Really need to! Hope you all have one fabulous weekend!!!!!
Smoooochies from Jenn
this? Holy moly!!!!!! What a chance to GO FOR IT!!!! And design for one of these bestest designers out there!!!!!!! Okay, I am sooooo stoked to see tons of cuute pages for this awesome call!!!! Gosh....you seriously have to try out because us "DDE girleees" are just the funnest! LOL Seriously, slumber scrap parties, chit chatting about cute guys (LOL), scrapping our little lives away and sooo much chit chatting...really the DDE chit chat inbox always gets sooo full, it is just a BLAST! You HAVE to TRY OUT for this! Gina is just the sweeeetest thing in the world and I am one who is just tickled pink to be on her team! She has become such a dear friend as all the DDE girls have as well, so definitely give it a go!!!!! You can post your pages in this gallery and I soooo can't wait to comment on all these cuuuuties!
Okay too isn't Gina the best doodler? LOL Really this lil cutie is just adoreable!!!!!!! I think the girls that are chosen should order coffee cups from here with this lil sweetie on it titled "I was a Guest CT Girl"! :) Really!!!!! My lil sweetie above that Sweeeeet Mindy made for me is on my favorite coffee cup! I'll have to get a picture of that! Every morning my Starbucks goes into that mug! :)
Okay can I vent a tad about my day? LOL Really I rarely vent! But today two things broke! My car brakes (front ones) and my printer! LOL Well our baby Matthew broke my printer because I left it out! My fault! LOL Sooooooo, my sweeet hubby took my car in today and got the brakes fixed! The Ford dealership were pretty cool and since the last check they should have replaced a few things, they knocked a few hundred off. Whew! LOL
Then sweet baby Matthew-our lil tiger monster-LOL-broke my printer! I called around to the printer doctors in the area and it would have been $50+ to fix. Okay my printer was $200 a few years ago. And I only use it to print small stuff. So after we were out and about today, we stopped at Costco for some hot dogs for the kids. And then we looked at printers and I accidentally saw an ex boyfriend of mine and let me just say how terribly awkward that was! LOL Okay back to the printer, I found one!!!! LOL And at a steal..and at this price I can replace it in a year or so if baby Matthew figures out how to get to it and break it! LOL No really this is going in the closet until the Shabby Hubby can build me a sweet shabby cabinet to hold it in and lock it so the kiddies can't get to it! :) What a project!!!!!!! Really my dh had a good laugh at the exboyfriend thing and of course is the studdliest man around! LOL I am sooo glad and blessed I got this hunky dude all to myself! :)
So this is the printer I got!!!! Pretty neat and looks like our Ibooks! LOL Shabby white too! TEE HEE!
Okay so whew..the kiddies are now in bed and I am happily reading everyone's bloggies tonight! LOL In bed! :) Looooove Ibooks! :)
Have a wonderful night sweeties!
How cool is it to wake up looking over beautiful vineyards and seeing huge hot air balloons soar over your place? Just too cool! It's not even time for the hot air balloon races to begin yet but our kids just love to get out and watch the huge balloons go by! It's a pretty fantastic ride, although I have never been and don't really want to go..lol..to afraid of heights! But I hear the view is amazing! And we basically drive all over and see these beautiful vineyards everywhere! They are pretty incredible to see and especially see them change over each season. It sometimes does seem like we live in france....going on walks in the vineyards...knowing they have been around for years...just the history...amazing!
So I finally re-categorized this blog of mine! LOL I get so many emails about "shabby chic" and "digital scrapbooking" and tons more so I categorized every post to make this easier! I know I am so scatterbrained sometimes so I'll try to make sure my posts stick to the category now! LOL No really, I just think it might make it easier to search for those "shabby chic goodies" some of you like to look at now and then! :)
Okay it has been one LONG LONG week! I cannot even believe how long this week was! I literally had not one ounce of time to scrap, visit galleries and forums and leave comments which I love to do or anything else! I swear I miss all my shabby buddies but hopefully this week will be smooth sailing!
I truly and honestly will have a "Shabby Chic" post here soon! LOL But tonight you have got to RUN to my friend Gina's site and grab the new Felties bundle at her site! Okay these goodies are just too yummy for words! I have seriously "scrap withdrawals" so I had to scrap this cute photo of our dd with her sweet lil friend at their school on Hawaiian Day....I used Gina's Tropical Punch kit..just soooo cuuute!
And here's a page I just did of our Mattie-pooh handling his first MASSIVE vanilla ice cream cone! This was HILARIOUS to watch! LOL Gina's Full Bloom for this one!
Okay really have to run to bed! I sooo hope to catch up on all your sweet bloggies soon! Until then nighty night smooochies from me! :)
From this lil shabby one to you!!!!! All you mommies know that this is the hardest yet most rewarding job out there! So enjoy your day being pampered and appreciated!!!! Okay I am resting up now! LOL Sweet wishes to you! Oh and is this card just the cuuutest thing ever? I made it using Janna's awesome new shabby roses kit called Grandma Sally's Roses. YUM!!!!!!! Shabby smooochies to you all and please ignore me the next few days....I am reorganizing this bloggie! LOL
Yes that shabby flea market was pretty darn fun! I love it and oh can't wait to go back! You guys really...all your sweet comments and private emails..um...sooo glad you enjoyed the pics! :) Really fleas are some of the best places to find vintage goodies but also to people watch is really cool too! :) The cooooolest part is today. Dawn aka hunibuni from Modscraps said she was inspired by our recent trip to the Shabby Flea Market and soo inspired that she created this awesome kit!!! Is that just cool or what! :) Totally tickled pink here that I had to scrap and journal some of my favorite momentous occasions for my wild shabby chic hunting! Okay so go buy that kit! The stamp alone is soooo super fantabulous! And miss Kathryn Balint made these most yummiest buttons! WOW!!!!!!
Then I see Michelle's suuuper cute page and just had to get her awesome new kit! Well since she has three boys, she totally is one of my all time favorite designers for kits! I love her girlee ones too but man oh man she rocks those color choices and they are never feminine! She's brilliant! Go here and get this super kit! :)
Yesterday was Alisa, one of our DDE girl's birthday, so I made her a card and lifte it from this. :) Sooo cute!!! Here's mine.
Then only two pages this week. It was one crazeeee week!!!! I miss scrapping a ton!!!! So I used all DDE goodies for the Josh page and for Chayce I used mostly all of Dianne's awesome new kit for this page. LOOVE it!!!! :)
Well we had the most incredible time yesterday at the Shabby Flea Market! The kids had a blast! I of course totally enjoyed seeing several friends there! And of course the shabby eye candy was a major hit! This was just a gorgeous day near the Bay and we had a ball! I took way too many pictures but that's okay! LOL Here they are in all their glory!!!!
There really was a ton of amazing goodies! Mr Garden Guy! I swear he is one of my all time fav stops at this flea market! The way he throws everything together and adds flowers and plants! Just awesome! And the cabinets he had in the back were amazing! I especially LOVED the pink birdhouse! And a lady in his store made these fabulous french handbag purses and backpack purses! Totally made from chic french velvet and trimmed with the most yummiest french silk ribbon fringe! I really love those!
There was just TONS of tole chandeliers..but really I don't need anymore! Ha! And just the old vintage beds were awesome!~ The imported antiques from France were just fabulous too! I love these baby enamel baths with iron stands! Are they just cool? Those were ALL sold too! LOL
I did get a really cool old shabby "thing" but I'll wait and be sure to share the before and after pics! :)
Just soo much stuff to look at! The kiddies got toys and lots of goodies too so they totally had a blast!! Anyways, off to do errands today!!! I hope you all enjoy these!!!!!
PS- and to those who I had the enormous pleasure of shabby chatting with at Kristie's site on NSD day, well that was just SO MUCH FUN!!!!! You girlees are just the sweeeetest!!!!!
Okay soooo Matthew is all better! Thank heavens! I had no idea it would last this long but also I found out that sweet Kim's dd had this nasty bug too! These poor babies! I hate it when they get sick! Okay so hopefully we can get on and back into life again!
Sunday is the Shabby Flea Market. And since the weather has been nothing but perfect, we are for sure going and know it will not rain out! LOL And how more appropriate to title this with Kristie's fabulous Flea Market alpha! Yum! This flea is totally spectacular in that all boutique owners flood to it with there huge lined carts and fill it up with amazing treasures. Of course my husband put a limit on me! LOL No fair! I know he is actually looking forward to this more because he likes to find those vintage coke memorabilia and bikes and old cameras. Yeah like we really need them! LOL But since he puts up with my white and pink furniture and roses chandeliers, well he gets some "stuff" for himself too. I'll definitely hope I have a few treasures to share next week! :)
Soooo, have you ever had a twin? Like that is not blood related but just naturally is your twin? Okay I have two! Well maybe three. And possibly more out there! You really never know. Tee hee! For certain, Kristie is my Shabby twin! I mean from everything to likes/dislikes, food, movies, clothes, furniture...it's her! She's my twin. Hilarious! And then I just learned that Janet is my Shabby Mommy twin. I mean really, a girl and two little boys and her middle one is the exact same age as our baby Matthew. Okay scary! LOL We definitely will be experiencing so many similar situations! It's nice to know we can bounce off things and really relate well with our 3 babies! :) She's just a sweetie pie! And then Susie Q! My friend who actually introduced me to digital scrapbooking a few years back. Really she's the person that I can chat with on and off or on the phone and usually one of us has to go asap, so we are never upset when we have to scram to help our kiddies! LOL Just awesome people here. And I am one who just loves and adores everyone for everything they bring and all their amazing qualities! Just cool.
Sooooo, this Saturday, HUGE celebrations and festivities will be happening all over to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day! Oh hoooray! Soooo excited for this! Just check everyone's blog and you'll see the awesome events going on. And of course miss Gina Wina has the best countdown stuff at her site too! So this Saturday, at the Shabby Shoppe, there will be some fabulous chats and prizes! Cool! And this will be my first time co-hosting a SHABBY CHIC chat! WHOO HOO!!! With Steph! She is just the bestest and a sweetie girl! We'll be chatting on how to scrap those shabby days when life is pretty much a challenge! Or you can read the Shabby Shoppe's newsletter for more details. I know there are gonna be AWESOME shabby stuff so definitely make a stop if you can. Yippee!
Okay well this was a load! LOL Here are a few pages with Gina's latest goodies! Love them!!!!! And hopefully I can get tons more pics of the kiddies this weekend. I had to get a new camera since my other little one had to go back to the shop. LOL But it's a great little camera with mega zoom and lots of pixels! I just need to decide which SLR to get!!!! And what lenses to get to go with!
Oh and check out this awesome site! I think I am going to use this kit for Matt's birthday pictures! Just too cute!!!!! And isn't this just awesome? Love it! And I will leave you with one of my new favorite quotes! Sooo inspiring!
Okay hope you all have a Shabby Fabulous Thursday!!!!
