Seasonal Words...

Happy Tuesday!

Are you ready for your next fun treat? I have been having fun with words this week.

It must be all the reading I have been doing. Scrabble that I play. And those 7th grade English lessons.

Doesn't really matter what has caused it. I'm obsessed with words and will be listing a few more in the coming weeks.

Here's the one for you:

If you are looking for seasonal stamps to go along with your word art, be sure and check out my shop. I've added these trees, and will be adding some other fun stuff soon.

Happy Holidays :)


A Hunting We Will Go...

Time for a Christmas tree!!

We went into an old burn area, from the fires of 2000, hoping to find a regrowth tree at the right height. There really aren't any yet. Those fires burned so hot that the majority of the burn area barely has shrubs, let alone evergreen trees.

It was a nice day to be out driving and looking, so we just kept on going until we found a few pockets of trees that we could look through.

The kids are super excited to get it decorated. We will probably get it done sometime this week. We are waiting for my sis to come and join us in the festivities :)

Happy Monday,


No Shopping Crowds...

Happy Saturday!

Did any of you brave the crowds and shop yesterday? Not me!

Big crowds, long lines, and masses of people in the aisles are not my thing. My sisters always laugh at me because I will skip the Post Office when there are more than 5 cars in the parking lot. "It's just to busy", I say.
They think I'm crazy.
I think its just what you get used to when you live in a small town.
I'm not big town adjusted :)

The kids and I spent a wonderfully lazy day at home instead. There is a huge fort in the middle of my living room, that even includes the kitchen chairs. There is one chair left at the table, the one I'm sitting in ;)
They have "Polly World" in full swing, and I am scared to go downstairs to see what types of messes happened while they were playing school until almost midnight last night. Oh well, we'll clean it up later. They are happy, and that makes me happy!

My plans today:

  • workout at some point...might not happen till closer to evening.
  • draw in my sketchbook (time for new items on Etsy).
  • read a book...I finished one yesterday, but there is always another in the "To Read" pile :)

I listed some new owls this week:

Great fall colors that are a visual treat now that our world has been turned white here in Montana.

Have a great weekend!


Skip the Turkey...

I'm not sure why, but Thanksgiving just doesn't zing me.

Don't get me wrong, I love every chance I can find to see my family. What I don't like is the getting together because of food part. And the having to rush to drive and see each other because we only have four days to fit it all in.

Black Friday...don't even get me started!

So, I'm skipping Thanksgiving. Finding a new way to celebrate. A new family tradition. Not sure what that is yet, but I'll think of something good. It will probably involve a hot springs of some sort :)

To officially start the skipping, here is today's freebie:

These are going to be so much fun to color on a card or a scrapbook page. I wish I were home coloring right now!!

Happy Tuesday,


Sweet Saturday

Ahhh. Saturday!

I was so ready for this day, it was a super long week. And so far, today is blissful :)

Yoga this morning at 9:00.
Coffee and breakfast with my kids.
Hubby is gone hunting. Kids went to play with friends.
I am home ALONE!
Hot shower.
My favorite jeans.
More coffee!
And later, a girls afternoon out to go see the latest Twilight movie.

Couldn't get better (unless I could repeat it a few more time *wink*).

While I was thinking about being thankful for my quiet and relaxing Saturday, I remembered this mini book that I made. It fits the day and the upcoming holiday, so I figured I would share:

It was one of my favorites, and I really want to remake it with some different papers, just for fun. Makes me want to scrapbook. Hmmm.

Have a great Saturday :)


Fun Winter Hats

Happy Tuesday!

It's our last full week before the Holiday weekend. I'm hoping it goes by fast! There are creative plans to be made for the weekend, and maybe a little bit of travel and some family time. Or maybe an adventure. Haven't decided yet :)

Here is this weeks fun freebie:

I thought these would make some great cards, or a fun border on a scrapbook layout. Add your own designs and color in different fun and funky ways. Enjoy!


I'm a Moron...Maybe

It was a busy weekend.

Kyla, a friend, and I drove up to Missoula to make a Costco run...and then have some time to play. We picked up my sister when we pulled into town, so it turned into a girls day. The four of us terrorized the town all day.
Lunch at MacKenzie River (yum-o).
Barnes and Noble and coffee. That is always a must!

Yesterday, I spent the day catching up on some Etsy stuff. Did a Zumba workout. I bought the DVDs and have been working my way through them. They aren't nearly as fun as the live class, but I was working on it. And then, I finally made it to the "live" DVD. So much better! I told myself when I started that I would at least make it through 30 minutes of it. It was so much fun that I finished the full 55 minutes!

Then, I started playing with an App on my phone called the "Moron Test". Crap! I'm addicted. And can't stop playing. I'm determined to make it to the end of it...and you can hear me growling often :)

I did manage to put my phone away long enough to draw free goodies for tomorrow. Check back. I'm off to prove that I'm not a moron :)


A Snowman's Heart

Brrr. Baby!!

It's cold outside, and getting colder. If the forecast holds, we might be seeing some snow by the weekend. I'm ready to just cozy up with a blanket and my sketchbook!

Parent teacher conferences are today, so it's going to be another busy day. I did find some time to draw last night, and I made a fun treat for you all:

You can download it here: Snowman with a Heart I'm hoping to have some new and fun things in the shop this weekend. We'll see how the schedule goes :)
And maybe some time to play with my markers!!
 Happy Thursday,

One Crazy Week...

Morning All,

I was hoping to have a new digital goodie for you today, but unfortunately, there has been no time to draw.
We spent the weekend visiting with family and driving (a lot of driving...the family is spread out!). We had fun, but by the time we made it home, we all just found a place to fall and stayed there.

It's the end of the quarter at school. Grade need to be entered into the computer and posted. That is a chore in itself. New assignments to start. Parent teacher conferences. Oh My Goodness!!

My two highlights for the week:
Yoga last night. She challenged us. By the time I was done I had jelly arm. Had to start quoting Open Season :)
And tomorrow I have Zumba!! It's the last class, which makes me sad. I bought the videos. I'm hoping to get that workout in tonight too...but it just popped in my head that I have to clean a house still too (and not even my own...grrr).

I promise to come back with a goodie. Stay tuned :)


Ready to Fall Back

I can't believe that it is already the 4th of November. I wasn't ready for this month, and it is already flying by. This is the weekend we fall back, I usually anticipate the time changes, and this year it slipped my mind. Crazy!

I'm looking forward to those slow, lazy, cold days of snow. Not sure if things will slow down the way I want them to or not, but I can always dream.

I had a few minutes to make some new digital stamps this week.

The fit the Etsy themes for November, since everyone is loving mustaches right now, it is Movember...
So I gave this little guy a mustache...

And I made this set of latte cups that I have been thinking about for awhile now...

It's going to be another crazy busy weekend. We are going to see family, maybe take the kids swimming, and then we will lose that hour on Sunday. Here we go....

Happy Friday,


Something to Crow About

Happy Tuesday,

It's that time again. Where do the weeks go?

Today, I figured something that could be used for Halloween or Fall would be fun. The time of spooks and spells has past, but we can still celebrate fall and harvest, right? You can download these fun goodies here. Enjoy.

We had snow this morning. The weather forecast says "winter" before the end of the week. Yikes! That came around fast!

Happy November!
