dance in the rain...

It is the Wednesday Whimsy Haven Blog Hop!!!

You should have hopped over here from:

Remember that the Blog Hop starts at the Whimsy Haven Blog! You'll want to check out the Wednesday only $1 Blog Special.....the regular price kicks in tomorrow!

Pretty exciting over at Whimsy Haven this week....Lindsay is sponsoring
2S4Y!!


Check out what I have for you today:


I wanted to play with the Rainy Day set....what can I say? I'm a true Washingtonian:)

I was inspired by Tracy's Sketchy Thursday:

Next stop on the hop is:

Amy C's of Caffinated Cropper!




♥♥kidlet alert♥♥

I'm the luckiest Momma ever...okay, I think Mom's all think like that...I wanted to share with you over the next couple of days what my kidlets did/made for me for Mother's Day.


Check out this fabbie October Afternoon card that my girl made me...I don't think that she actually planned on making it all OA but that's how it ended up....she inked up a sweet {Highly-Neglected} owlie OA stamp set and do you see that? Why yes, she sliced into my new OA pads...and YES, it was totally worth it...a true keepsake in my book...something made by my girl...

She also is making something in her "Skills for Life" class {translation: Home Ec:) }...it's a cross-stitch project...can't wait to have THAT in my greedy Momma hands...

This is the same girl that found this image on the web and promptly posted in my crafty area:


Not sure where SHE found it, but I found it on Owltastic.

Typing about my crafty area...I was a winner over on the EAD Designs....I won a "Create" Craft Room saying!!! Woot Woot!!! Sooooo very excited about that as I'm still purging and re-organizing my area and it'll be a great add to my wall!
