PWCO Free For All!

Yay - I tried my hand at hair clips; turned out pretty good for a first go, I think - at least, The Princess says so! 

Looking for fun, crafty ideas (that are fairly simple to mass produce - and that are fairly inexpensive!) for the goodie bags at The Royal Princess' 6th Birthday Ball - I know, I know... not until the end of October... but these things require extensive testing prior to being tossed to the wolves! (*ahem... attending guests from nearby kingdoms...ahem*)  <--(lol)  Lil's been sporting these clips around town the last few days, and so far, they've stood up to storms and saliva, and have garnered quite a few compliments.  (YES!)

Oh yeah... and PWCO needs to fit in here somewhere, too - check the card out; I made this little set for Ms. Em herself.  Super proud of her these days - she's been back in school for almost 3 weeks now... Apparently the littles are supposed to be at Reading Level 16 by the end of first grade.  The first books she brought home from school are at Level 15.... hence the bookmark (thanks, PTI, for creating this kick-ass die - and super yummy felt!!).  Annnywayy... right.  The card.  It's got my most favourite PWCO character on it... Zoie the Zebra!  So easy to add glitz with her; just heat emboss her with black glitter ep - and taaaa daaaa- super sparkly zebra, with very minimal effort!  Add a touch of Copic to liven things up a bit here and there.

All righty... I've got a boatload of packing to do... I'm scheduling this post for the AM, since Em & I will be hitting the road at noon, on our way to London, Ontario - sooo excited for Kraftin Kimmie Day!!!!  (Anyone else going?)

Blog Candy Time!

So.... Obviously, I didn't post the blog candy on my birthday.   I was too busy taking myself out for supper, followed by a long, hot bath, a good night's sleep, and a day of retail therapy!  Today, my mumma & baby sister came out for a little visit, and we went out for an afternoon desert - yum!

I'll post it when I get around to it.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hey y'all!

It's the big 2-5 today... no plans, though.  The Mr's out swathing, the big monster's in school, and the little monster is at home giving me tons of cuddles as per usual (and that's always the best part!)...

I've got a Free For All post up over at PWCO today...make sure you swing by & check it out!

Also, since it's my party, I thought I better get a goodie bag together - check back later today for that post!

PWCO Free For All!

I'm on a major notepad kick these days... I'm definitely a 'list maker' so these long, skinny notepads are perfect for that!
It's a good thing I'm on 'Free For All' this month... 'cause this little guy was whipped together at 3AM; totally forgot I had a project due!!!! (LOL!)

You can pick up your papers & elements here:
Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock
MME Colourful Christmas Collection  (<--and this stuff's even 40% off right now!)

Just doing a little updating...

...on el-bloggo... and have come to realize two things.

1) It's my big 2-5 on the 16th (ummm...ack!  *insert panic attack here* LOL).  Better get some candy together!!  (Watch for that... totally not ready yet!)

2) I'm at 187 'companions'.  (<-- There. That sounds better than 'followers'!)  If I hit - or surpass - 200 by my birthday, I'm thinking I better double up the candy offerings!

Y'all just think about that for a few days.
{smooshy hugs, 'cause I'm feelin' the lurve...}

PaperWorks Co - Free For All!

Hey everyone!

Wow, is September an exciting month in the Jones household! It's going to contain my birthday (16th), my husband's birthday(30th), a visit from my Dad (who lives in Texas - he's around from the 9th-17th), Emily starts Ballet & Tap right after her first day of Grade 1 (8th), AND Em & I are taking off on a weekend getaway at the end of the month - and don't forget the ongoing harvest throughout all of this!! Good thing my 'assignment' for this month is Free For All!!! Being able to just create without any guidelines is sometimes easier when you're busy, especially if you've got PWCO's PaperCard kits! <--Definitely one of my must-haves - and a shameless plug (lol)!
For details, come visit me over at the PWCO Blog!
