Like buttons much?

First up a teeny, tiny gift box, filled with a set of matching lil' birdie cards, made and gifted to a special friend. The box template came from the Split Coast Stampers website.

...and a recent "I really shouldn't but I just can't resist" find of vintage buttons... (apologies for the blurry pic!).

Lots of sweet little treasures in this lot. Be still my crafting heart! {giggle}. Been washing and sorting today (well made a bit of progress anyway). Interesting with 2 preschoolers in tow!

From time to time, lists are quite a neat way of succinctly and clearing recording information. As I had done a 'pre-two' list for my eldest I thought it would be nice to do again for James.
Don't you just love Mr Bunnykins! I saw that Lyn (from 'The Scrapbook Store') had used him on a project on her blog a while back and fortunately she had some of the Sassafrass paper left. I used a black and white photo as I thought it would tie in better with the softer papers.

Translation: Runners=running away! (Eek had a dream about that last night...not fun)

Happy Crafting Peeps!

Challenge 4

Well I made it for Challenge Me Happy #4 at the eleventh hour. For some reason I had it in my mind we had till mid week- eek!!

It was a 'scrap-lift' this time. Pic is when my hubby and I were away child free for a wedding earlier in the year. It nearly didn't happen due to the Christchurch quake but got there in the end.

Crafts again!

Kia Ora peeps.

Two little projects to share with you this evening. Firstly a decorated gift sack.

Secondly a cupcake friendship card. I have used glass glitter for embellishing the 'icing'.

I {heart} these tiny little butterfly pins from Webster's Pages... Such teeny weeny cuteness!

PS If anyone can send me a link to a 3D cupcake template I will be very grateful.

Week in My Life Sunday

It's nice incorporating a family outing into Sunday. The boys LOVED the big engines outside Founders.

Founders is one of my fav places to take the boys...ducks, lotsa places to trike/ scooter, rooms to explore, a playground, a plane and tractor to climb, a cafe... And it's free for locals.

Gav was a but gutted that the cafe was closed for winter.

EVERY time I'm in the kitchen doing anything J has to "look" "look". Drives me a bit bats. LOL

Week in My Life is over. It's sooo good doing but I'm always ready to stop journalling and taking pics when it's over. Took about 400 pics, of course not all will be used. Think I appreciate my little guys and my not so boring life even more.
