a little scrappiness + new printer's tray


oh, i love my printer's trays. those things rock! made a new one to go on the mantle. a non-christmasy one. i was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. maybe not as much as the christmas one, but i still like it! :) any suggestions on what to fill those apothecary jars with? now that it's not christmas, i took out the pine cones & cranberries. not sure what to put in there. also - a little scrapping i actually did recently... (you can find detailed pics of the tray & all the layouts in my gallery over at studio calico)

this one was inspired by listening to the glee soundtrack repeatedly. i think "no air" just might be my fav on vol.1. not sure. there are some pretty good ones on there...
this one is about noah's red, red cheeks when we were at lake tahoe. he didn't care!
this one is a lift of nicole samuels for a challenge posted over at studio calico to lift a favorite in your gallery. i did a pretty literal lift. her original was just too darn awesome. i didn't want to change anything!
i love this pic of noah. it was right after he wiped out at the bottom of the sledding hill!
collin was sooo excited to play in the snow & build a snowman. he was the only one interested in it. but, he didn't care!

some pics from our recent trip down to san francisco with whitney & riding the cable car.

wonder why i am never here???

because i am constantly battling the mess... that's why, but i'm gonna try! (i swear!) incase you're wondering what was going on here... it was snowing. duh! i just love packing peanuts. (2 peas... stop using them! cushion with a wadded up paper instead. please. i am begging you!)
