fighting off winter sleepies

man i have a bad case of the sleepies today!! i just want to curl up and nap all day...which can't really happen since i pick my kids up from school soon...oh well... i can dream...

anyways, here are some of my latest creations...the sketch was a contest for our local scrapbook store. haven't heard back, but i liked the sketch and wanted to give it a try. i love how this turned out, and i am proud of how well i am becoming at sewing on paper.

the card was another sketch i followed...need some baby cards, so i have been playing around and this is what i came up with...thanks for looking....

becoming a believer

i am a skeptic by nature. so i half heartedly signed up for the swag bucks (see linky button to the right) to see what it was all about...

in the course of just a couple of days, i now have 22 SWAGBUCKS!! just from using their tool bar to search things. i got 3 this morning alone! so being the skeptic i am...i wanted to investigate a little further...and then i found THIS! the prizes you can redeem your SB for. when i get 45 of these things...i can get a $5 amazon gift card. pretty cool, huh? still not convinced?? well i have been finding story after story of people who have saved all those $5 gift cards and COMPLETELY paid for christmas with the tune of like $800 worth of those cards!!

wowzers!! so i am gonna keep with it...have i convinced you yet? you can also earn SB from shopping at online stores (that you probably already shop at).... wanna give it a try?? its FREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

just click on the button to the right and it will tell you what you need to do. if you register and start collecting SB...let me know!! we can compare notes and help find good deals!!!

ok...back off the soap box:) off to shovel snow and fold joy...

slow start

my new year has been off to a slow start. which i don't mind at all:)

a little bit of snow; a little bit of sickness; a broken finger (abby); the musical Wicked; and a little bit of laundry and all those other boring, mundane parts of life.

here are some of my latest. sorry for the small pics, my computer and camera aren't talking, so i had to take these with my phone.

and last but not least you may notice an ad to the right about Swagbucks. its part of google, and its a search engine that everytime you use it you receive swag bucks. which you can then trade in for amazon gift cards and all sorts of other things! you just click on the ad, it will take you to their page. register (its FREE) and load their toolbar on your computer. then everytime you want to search for something, type it in...its as simple as that.

i am giving it a try and think you should too!! (stepping off my soapbox now:)
