papertrey ink blog hop: I ♥ coffee


Happy Boxing Day!




Tied up with String

This challenge was calling my name since I have so much twine to play with!

Check out how I was inspired:


Hope you're not getting tired of my Via projects:)


I am always inspired when Dawn McVey does the monochromatic look.  

Yes, that Sweet Symphony paper is old...I used my much hoarded PTI felt with my FAV PTI tag #3 die.  It's been teamed up with Latte Love, dontcha love that sweet tiny heart wood veneer (ala Freckled Fawn).  

The kraft bag is Bella Creationz and I tied everything up with Timeless Twine Natural.


I can't wait to hop through the links today!

Are there after-Christmas shoppers out there?  I generally go out but hope to stay home, in my jammies, all-day-long.

How was your Christmas?  We seriously had such a wonderful day!  All the kids were here, Darin has 2 kids too.  For dinner my family came over and we all ate.way.too.much.

I directed Darin to my wish list on pinterest for shopping help.  

THIS pin put this on my list:


and THIS pin put this on my list:


Yes, mine is PINK!!!!

....and check out what my lovely children bought me:


Every single time I go into Anthropologie I literally stare at this vase, now I can stare at it in the comforts of my own home.

In all honesty though, this has been one of thee best Christmases we have had.  Having everybody over at the house, everybody pitching in to help & cook, kids playing games together....makes a momma proud♡
