Hi guys!  Thanks for sticking with me. Well. If anyone's reading this. Haha. 

So!!!  Here are some sneak peek pics of what I am getting ready for my SHOP!!!

30!!!  JOURNAL KITS!  They will be kits that include awesome sturdy corrugated cardboard covers. A menagerie of pretty and themed papers. And LOTS of little embellishment goodies so you can easily put together your very own special journal!  They will be pre hole punched for yah and two binder rings will be included.  I am HOPING (and crossing my fingers) that they will be listed before the weekend!!!  But definitely by the end of this Sunday. September 22. 

For the quickest updates follow my shops Facebook page (there is a button over there on the right)!  And I will post here on my
Blog as soon as they are available. Also. Watch for a YouTube video so you can see them a little more close up!!!

And as always. If anyone is interested in a custom other. Just holler!!!


I Had A Birthday!!!

And it was WONDERFUL!  (Family drama aside).

I celebrated all last week. I only worked two days so that was wonderful in itself!  My Bestie made me a wonderful yummy birthday dinner the night before any birthday. Raviolis with sauteed zucchini. Mushrooms. And asparagus.   Yum!!!  We had a lovely strawberry blackberry shortcake for dessert. And then there were presents!!!

She had been to Italy this summer and I reaped the rewards. She gave me. A beautiful hand painted mask that just screams LEO!  And guys it fits my face as if it had been molded just for me. I also received flowers. A friendship bracelet. A necklace  (that I had stolen from her back in high school). She still had it!!!  A lovely little glass owl. And. A. VINTAGE typewriter!!!  It is a Smith Corona Sterling. It is from the 50's and it has that lovely old smell. You have to pound away on the keys. There is no number 1 or an exclamation point!!! But it comes with a 1/2 and a 1/4 key...  And I absolutely love it. 

My hubby gave me a beautiful hope chest that now lives next to my desk. I was taken out the day of my birthday for breakfast at my favorite little breakfast spot. THEN the following day my hubby orchestrated a surprise Birthday Breakfast Party!!! My original birthday party had been cancelled due to family stress. So he made it up to me! I was completely surprised and shocked and loooooooved it. 

All in all it was a wonderful week and I am so happy to be THIRTY!!!

OH!!!  And watch out for some wonderful new items going into my SHOP soon!!!  Like in the next few days.  Hint: There will be JOURNAL KITS!!!  (ok so that wasn't really a hint...)
