If I had remembered what a toddler acted like, I may have decided not to have another one. I think that God makes them so cute so that you don't kill them! Here is what Parker was up to tonight while I was tucking the other boys into bed. He made a little "ink pad track" and walked up and down it, not only mixing the colors together on the ink pads but also leaving little foot prints all over my carpet, couch, the Wii Fit board, pillows and a blanket. My friend Teri has already offered me $1000 for him (however, I think she may change her mind when she sees this) so maybe we should start the bidding going down. Do I hear $950? Anyone? Here are the pictures of Parker and his feet of many colors.

Latest Projects...

Set of 5 tags using So Sweet Seasons stamp set.
This has two pockets, one for a tag and one for a gift card.

Fall card using Treasure Life stamp set and chalk popping technique.

Using Bethlehem stamp set

Uses Playful Flourishes, Shining Star, and Bethlehem stamp sets.

Uses All Decked Out and Feathery Flakes stamp set. Opinions please!! Do you think I should give the snowman a mouth? The stamp set has a smile mouth and a circle mouth. What do you think?

I know that I haven't posted any projects lately but that's because I've been busy working on them! I have a craft fair coming up and needed to make some cards for that. Most of these cards were inspired by other people. The gift card holder pattern came from Nona Davenport (thanks again Nona!). Hope you enjoy!

The Economy Must Be Bad...

Last night was sooo much fun! We were able to take Connor and Parker trick-or-treating without having to wear coats or snow boots! We had a great dinner over at Carole's and then took the kids around the block. We didn't even make it all the way around the block before Parker's bag was so full of candy that he was dragging it on the ground! I'll have to post pics of the kids later because I forgot my camera last night and had to borrow Carole's.

Anyway, on to the story of the day... someone toilet papered our house last night. It was a very amateur job, however. First off, they only used ONE (yes I said one) roll of tp!! No shaving cream, oreo cookies, lunch meat...nothing like that. Just one, lone roll of tp. I guess the economy really is getting bad if we can only afford one roll. If whoever graced our yard with their presence last night would like a lesson in the art of TPing, please let me know and I'd be glad to go with you.
