This past weekend, Mr. O and I had some fun making Valentine’s for his class party today. This year he wanted to pass out Sour Punch Straws. We added a pencil from the Target Dollar Spot and a cute Valentine sling shot guy we found at Michael’s to mix it up a bit. 😉 I’ve […]

baby shower

Published by under paper crafting

It’s been a long time since I’ve picked up my paper crafting supplies to make something cute and fun. A couple of Saturdays ago I hosted a baby shower for one of my Sisters-in-Law (I have seven). It was a good “excuse” to break out my scallop scissors and dust off my paper trimmer. Seriously, […]
