How cute are these?!?!

These are a few things I've come across this week that I'm loving...

1. Chocolate dipped oreo pops--I'm thinking these might be a fun Valentines day treat!

You can find the tutorial HERE

2. Since I have three kids I was totally excited about seeing these...I think I may actually break down and buy them!

I dream of one day owning a home that's decorated by Pottery Barn! You can find the hooks HERE

3. I am in love with these cute Rosette necklaces that I'm seeing all over the place...Anthropologie has had some cute ones! Look at this cute one:

You can find it HERE

I just read a tutorial on how to make similar ones so I think I may try my hand at it and see how it turns out!

4. I have a real obsession with dresses and skirts lately...I came across this one this week and think it's just the cutest for Valentines Day.

Since V-day is on a Sunday this year it gave me a good excuse...after all, Easter is on conference weekend this year so I don't have a good excuse to buy new Easter clothes for everyone. V-day is this year's Easter for me.

5. I found the recipe for this super yummy looking treat on the blog Taste Buds

I think I'll be making these soon! You can find the post with the recipe HERE

Link me up to something you're liking this week!

January Treasured Scrapbooking Projects--round 2!

Time for the second round of projects using the Treasured Scrapbooking main kit! This kit was full of so many different patterned papers so it was fun to mix and match! Here are three more layouts/projects using the kit:

"Your Smiles at Three Months"


Altered Magnetic Board

So I thought it would be fun to make a little magnet board for my scrap space to put notes, pictures....whatever on! I have a very small space so it's a small board. I cut a 2"x4" piece of wood to 9" long. Then I cut an angled slit into the wood to slide a magnet board down into. I bought a piece of roofing shingle at Home Depot and had it cut to be about 8"x 6". I used the flowers from the kit to create small magnets (just attached magnets onto the back of them) and mod podged the squares of paper onto the wood. I finished off the board with a large flower right in the middle with a jewel. So easy!! This would make a great recipe board for your kitchen too...or a great gift!!!

There are still a few of the January kits left so hop on over and get one of your very own!!!

Welcome to my new blog!

This will now be my scrapbooking and crafting blog...tune in to see what I'm up to!
