Tweet!

Happy Monday and welcome to another E.A.D Designs Blog Hop!!!


You should have hopped over here from Jenn's blog:


I have an Easy Peasy project to share with you...a mini memo board:

I bought the cork at Ikea {gotta love that place!}...and used the Caged Vinyl Rub-Ons...really lovin' it...especially because it was such a slam dunk! 

You gotta check out the new E.A.D Designs over at Cafe Press....I GOTTA get this ONE.

Next up for the hop is Sue-Pah Stephanie: 


**weekend update** 

Well, how was your weekend?  We spent ours in Oregon for Parent's Weekend at Darin's daughter's college..btw, she loved her little giftie:)   The drive down and up was VERY productive:


I made about 16 of these puppies using a Clover Yo Yo Maker...after buying them {I picked up small, large and extra large} I saw that Heather Bailey had a tut on her blog BUT I tell you, the Clover dealio made them super easy to slam together!  Haha..I do have to tell you that I took this pic in the car...on my lap...with my phone...I had to show my friend at work that I actually made them...she was with me when I bought the Yo Yo makers and quite frankly, I tend to buy things and not use them...I mentioned to her that she could borrow them from me if she wanted and she said that I could probably just sell them to her in a year...aha...a challenge...Does the fabric look familiar?
