Make it Monday

Once again another bust week over here. That's the norm around here it seems and I have a feeling that's the way it's going to be for a very long while.

I love today's Make it Monday. I am thinking about using this as one of our cards for card class this month. It's simple and cute. My favorite types of card. This card is very easy to duplicate.

Here are the items used to make this card:

Friday Rewind.

Well it's been 2 weeks since my last Friday Rewind post. Last week was kinda busy and I totally forgot about it since I was trying to finish up last minute details to get ready for the vendor fair that happened last Saturday. 

I spent last week getting ready for the vendor fair. Making up some last minute display items and shopping for some last minute items for my table. Like always it was a busy a week.
here are some pictures of my display:)

Cameron's class was suppose to go on a field trip on Wednesday to Apple Hill but a couple weeks ago a fire started in the sierra about an hour from us and right down the road from where we were going on the field so the teacher decided to postpone the field trip. The fire now has been burning for 2 weeks, the rain we got yesterday helped a lot. This fire is known as the King fire. It's burning close to an area where we go camping and close some friends home. Thankfully it has moved on and their homes are no longer threatened at this time. So the last couple weeks its been smokey on and off. Actually this morning it was pretty bad. At Cameron's school they kept the kids inside at recess an snack time in the morning hours.

Of course Cameron had a few games the last couple weeks and yesterday he receive his first hit by pitch. he took it in his side area. He took it it pretty good and wasn't afraid to keep hitting. He stayed in the batters box and ended up getting a hit. But this picture was taken right after he got hit and stepped back into the box to continue hitting.

 Ryan an Bentley chilling before Cameron's game.

The change in weather is nice but the forecast for next says 90's. I am so ready for the Fall weather. I am tired of running the air conditioner and having sweaty pits every time I go outside. The mornings are getting a bit chillier and I HATE the sun is rising later and later. It's dark until like almost 7!!!!

Two weeks ago tomorrow Ryan dropped off the Jeep to have all it's super duper beefy upgrades done. It was suppose to be done today. Today was the promise date....well that didn't happen. Ryan stopped by the shop Monday to see how things were going and they hadn't made it very far. Ryan says they still have lots to do and the shop told him he won't be done until next week. So we shall see. No clue if it will be early or late next week BUT we are anxious. I also have lots of work to do in the garage. I suppose to be cleaning it while the Jeep is gone but of course I haven't gotten very far. 

And on Sunday I broke my own holiday decoration policy. I usually do not put any Halloween stuff up until October 1......the kids love it and the garage has lots of free space to get down some totes so we put some stuff out.

We will finish up this weekend and put cobwebs on the bushes and more spooky netting and Zombie caution tape on the windows to the right of the picture. Now I have to look at all this crap for a whole stinking month.....ugh!!! Oh well the kids love it. Well kinda love it. Easton is scared of some things now, like deathly this Halloween should be interesting.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!!!

Make it Monday.

I know I did not post a Friday Rewind but I promise I will be back this week:) It was a busy week plus I was getting ready for the Vendor Fair on Saturday and I completely forgot about it until I was laying in bed and by that time I was exhausted. 

This Make it Monday I bring you a card made with products from the new Holiday Catalog. I love the stamp set Get Your Santa On. So cute and so many awesome samples out there. I made this card for a swap. For this particular swap we all chose a stamp set from the new catalog. We all made 12 of the same card then we swap cards with each other and you end up with 12 different cards using different stamp sets. That way we can share with our customers all that there is to offer in the holiday catalog without having to buy every single set. It's really an awesome and this is just my second one I participated in. And on the plus side this card is really simple to re-create. 

Bentley got super excited and was pointing saying "HO HO HO". I guess someone is ready for Santa:)
