Just a heads up for you...I used to do (years ago when all of my blog was just papercrafting and stamping with a few other projects I showed here and there) From This to That Fridays.
Well, I am excited to announce, that I am bringing them back. Although...it won't be papercrafting...unless it's here and there. So, look to Friday for some fun new things I have to show you. (I already have so many ideas, it's hard to wait to show you!!!) Think girl scout cookies for this week. lol Wanting some thin mints now? :)
Thanks to picmonkey for helping me create these cute collages. Now if I can find the time to learn how to turn them into buttons! :)

Sorry I am actually a week late in this announcement. Sickness in my and my babes does me in!
Excited to announce our winners from our BElieve THEre is GOOD in the World Vinyl GIVEAWAY!
They win the vinyl of either of the two options below (minus the frames, vinyl and wood)
"I can do hard things." (This one is actually our own family motto that is displayed in our dining room, so this was a no brainer for us on this one.)
"Together we make a family"
I can just see this one surrounding by pics of all generations past! Love!
In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured. -Gordon B Hinckley
silly-we put the fun in dysfunctional and the one that you have that says:as far as everyone knows we are a nice normal family
Congrats to all and thanks to everyone for playing along. I'll be having another give-away shortly!

I also glass etched the little windows in our front door last year. I didn't like how people could see right through them OR how the sun would shine right into our eyes every evening as it the sun went down...and I wanted a bit of charm in them. I like the end result. Fun and kinda cottage charming I think. Goes with our 1953 house that we bought and have slowly re-modeled almost every room in the house now. :) (Can you believe that someone carpeted over all the original hardwood flooring?!) Anyhoos....

...All year long!
(Here it is the way I found it on my bed from my sweet 10 yr old son.)
I recently made this quote in vinyl, but haven't figured out what I want to apply it to (I have lots of quote cut out, but not put up yet. I am afraid someday, someone will walk into my home and think I went a bit vinyl-happy.) :) I know this project is about telling someone why you love them, but I am hoping it evokes more of the "proving" it is true as well. :)
It's Tuesday though, so feel free to link up anything you have made lately or have been inspired by! Just put your link in the comments! (And BTW-I thought I was so cleaver, coming up with the phrase "Tag, You're it! Tuesday and now I have seen it elsewhere...hmmm...keep it? or figure out another phrase?)

I've got a card share for you today! I absolutely love this card from Anise Press. Anise Press is a letter press company that creates beautiful work. You can find them at anisepress.com and you can see them featured at Design Mom here. Love their stuff! One of my favs is one of their newest ones they have for sale. I got it for my Dad for his bday, but it would work for any occasion really!

Leave it to one of my kids to decide the day before Valentines that they REALLY want to make some Valentines!
I had seen some cute sayings with mustaches on pinterest and thought it would be so cute to make little staches on the top of pencils, where the kids could hold them in front of their faces. And again, I like that they can still use the item (pencils) again later (like the bookmarks). They are FUNctional! :) He loved the idea right away and got a big smile on his face.
So, I whipped these out this am. I can't wait for him to get home from school and see what he thinks! (And he can help assemble the rest too!)
Mustache Pencil Topper Valentines
Supplies: Pencils, glue dots, string, black cardstock, printer paper, red marker, (optional: washi tape)
1-Print out your own template (or if you want mine I am happy to email it to you.) of your tag/card
2-Fold your paper in half
3-Cut into strips
4-Cut out your mustaches on black cardstock
6- OR you can line it with some washi tape. I did both.
7-Grab your glue dots and attach your mustache to the pencil with the glue dots.
8- Punch a hole in your tag and attach it to the pencil with some string.
