Vintage Marketplace, Hungry Caterpillar Birthday and Baby Boy Scrapbook!! Easter Freebies!!

Hello Friends!

Well here I am, trying to get in a blog post before the end of March.

It has been a busy March!
My adorable little grandson turned one,
and I had lots of fun creating for his
Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday party!
I made this little accordian photo holder with a picture
for each of his first twelve months:

This is just the first six months showing.
 No, I didn't make the cake, but isn't it so cute?!

I did make this welcome wreath for the front door:
 My daughter and the birthday boy:

 Here he is vigorously removing the birthday crown that I had made him,
made of felt:
  I knew when I made it that it wouldn't last long, lol!

And a little banner I made,
using half of a honeycomb ball for the caterpillar head:


One year already, and you can see he is a little boy,
not a baby anymore...
But so so much fun!!

My friend Pam is expecting a new grandson this month,
so I made a scrappy little photo book for her,
all she need do is add pictures:

The cover:

And a few favorite layouts:


Made from those cute little We R Memories 4x4 books,
I just love those!!

This is a little bunny favor I made for our Paper Soiree gathering this month:


Made from a painted peat pot, he's designed for the rear view,
see his cute little bunny tail, made from fluffy felt?

Sigh...Vintage Marketplace was fantastic this spring:



Aren't these so funny?
Farm animals made from vegetables!! 


I was enchanted by these umbrellas, cups and coffeepots hanging in the trees:









It was a lovely morning,
we were glad we got there early
as it got much hotter later in the day. 

Here are some freebies for you,
thanks for visiting and sticking with me through this looong post :)

It's Still February! No It's Not!!

Hello Friends!

Sooo, did March come in like a lion or a lamb where you live?
It came in like a lion here in San Diego.
Rain!
Wind!
Temperatures in the 50s!
Actually, that's kind of fun for us :)
My best wishes for you all dealing with
the crazy cold and snowy winter this year!

I had wanted to get this post out while it was still February,
as I still have a few pretty Valentine pics to share.

The fabulous Vignettes hosted a wonderful event
for Valentine's Day,  
Fifty Shades of Pink!

Vintage Valentine boxes:







Look at this altered book!


Pretty pink dresses:



Fabulous bling:



Look at the fabulous bodice on this dress,
created from vintage rhinestone jewelry!



I would love to have this Eiffel Tower
(it lights up!).

Because this shop is literally a few blocks from the ocean,
they incorporate sea treasures in many of their creations:



Yep.  Jaw-droppingly gorgeous!

For our Valentine's Day, we took naps and stayed up late to watch
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Not exactly a rom com date movie.
But so good!

The next night we went to the Hard Rock hotel
to babysit our adorable grandson
while his Mom and Dad went out for date night.
 They made a cute Valentine for me,
which I can't find right now,
and brought us gold-dusted macarons from a fancy OC bakery:


Next time I'll have some new creations to share with you!

And freebies...
I wish you cloudless skies and happy hours:

Blogging Again and Happy Valentine's Day!!

Hello Friends!

I feel like I'm sending a signal out to the vast unknown...
like I've lost touch...
It's been so many months since I've made a blog post,
I really did not intend that to happen.
But
I'm still here, I'm still creating...

And
I'm not going to try to catch up
all in this one blog post :O

I am in a yearlong swap project hosted by Linda
of Swap for All Seasons,
which is a monthly sampler/fabric collage.
I am loving it!!  These are so much fun to make!
This is my January swap:

I wanted to incorporate a heart into it,
since she didn't actually received it til February!  :)

And this is my February swap:

 I just love combining all the fabric and lace bits
we all accumulate along the way. 

This is a little altered heart box that I made for
my Paper Soiree group's February swap:


It's so hard to put the glitter away when Christmas is over :)

Just a couple of cute projects,

some cute images,





and best wishes for a Happy Valentine's Day!!

I will be back next week, so please don't give up on me :)
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
