Love my girls!!!

Jocelyn sent me some photos from our get together and this is my favorite one...

Just wanted to send some loving to my scrappy girls!

March comes in a lion...

and it definitely did this year...with a couple of inches of snow on Monday. Then we ended the week with temps in the 70's!!! Crazy, right?! I'll take the warmer days, thank you very much! I went to my favorite antiques/collectibles shop, Now & Again, in Fallston on Saturday and I had to break out the flip flops! So happy to see painted toes again! The dogs were loving the warm weather and that they got to drive around in the car with me! All of these things bring me to my weekly list...

10 things that made me happy this week

1. Nice neighbors who clear the snow from my driveway!

2. Baking this cake and making this card for nice neighbor...

3. A clean house that has stayed relatively clean.

4. Finishing "The Hour I First Believed" by Wallie Lamb. It was a little long but still worth reading.

5. Receiving handmade TY card from Jamie & handmade birthday card from Jocelyn!

6. This old typewriter...

and these treasures from Now & Again Antiques...

7. Playing Hide & Seek with Jake

8. Wearing flipflops & painted toenails...

9. Beautiful "I Love You" art from Jake!

10. Scrapclub birthday celebration with my most favorite scrappy girls in the world! They ROCK!

All in all a good week! Let's hope the weather stays nice and spring-like! Go find what makes you happy!

10 things that made me happy...( a little late)

Yeah, so life has gotten the better of me lately and I didn't post my 10 happy things for last week. At least I have a clean house and empty laundry baskets. That's good, right?!

Here's what made me happy last week...

1. Makeup shopping @ Ulta with Tracy. New makeup is fun!

2. An early birthday card (handmade) from Jake!

3. Watching Jake climb a tree in the front yard. Love his imagination!

4. New library books! Can't wait to dig in!

5. Zeke, my so very bad but so very sweet bed warming, snuggling dog!

6. Double-feature movie day with Tracy! He's Just Not That Into You and Slumdog Millionaire---loved them both!

7. Caramel Apple Cidar with double whipped cream from Starbucks...mmmmm!

8. A finished layout...

9. My new hairdryer with the retractible cord...oh, and it's PINK!

10. This clock I made...

I need to seal it and add a hanger so, it's propped against the wall for now!

A close up. The numbers are woodburned into the face.

I saw a similar one on Design Sponge and knew I wanted one! It was fairly easy, fun & inexpensive to make! Can't wait to hang it up! Maybe it will help me be on time more often. Nahhhh, probably NOT!

Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow with 10 things from this week! Now, Go BE HAPPY!
