another one

all supplies from two peas in a bucket

lazy blogger

i've been lazy about posting inspiration lately. i promise i'll be better next week. i'll spend some time this weekend setting up some posts!

today i'm sharing a layout from 2Ps. my sister always jokes about how she can't take a good picture (she's kind of the anti-barney (how i met your mother.) i actually shot this photo of her at her birthday party. and it's a pretty good photo! :) i guess having a stomach bug and fever suits her. lol!

i also made this little piece of wall art for my studio...

and here is a bit of inspiration!

have you heard the story of vivian maier? so inspiring and truly amazing!
check out more of her gorgeous photography at John Maloof's blog.

52 valentines = 26 points

52 valentines - designed, printed, cut, lollipopped, bagged, tied and tagged. PHEW! darcy baldwin pointed out that she had seen these on pinterest. i thought they were so cute and the boys loved that they didn't have to fill them out. our school requires that all candy be put in a bag. so the bags were necessary!

 and that's 26 points. woot! and that makes 44!!

february jenni bowlin kit

with all the calvinball excitement, i nearly forgot to post about the jenni bowlin mercantile kit going live yesterday. here it is in all it's glory.

it's the perfect mix of romantic (for valentine's) and cheery (think spring!) i had a fabulous time creating three layouts for the gallery and should have a few more projects in the mid month gallery as well.

here's one of the pages i created with the kit. i thought the bright bold colors would go well with the trail map and the photo of my "boys." the large die cut is the logo for the ski resort!

i'd highly recommend picking up the add-on kit as well. it's a great complement to the main kit and adds a vintage dress pattern, a cancelled check, colorful buttons, great fabric covered brads and fun tin pins too!


one for jenni bowlin that should debut in the next few days and this one for eva kipler at sweet shoppe designs...

supplies - Glass Half Full kit from Meghan Mullens & Eva Kipler. Font is Darcy Baldwin's In Such a Rush. TFL!


one i can't share until next tuesday and this one from
