Ava is sleeping on her own in her crib from 8p - 6a! WOOHOO! Now if I could get to bed at 8p we'd be golden :) A girl can dream......

Well, I'm trying to get through my backlog of LP Kits and use some of the cool stuff I have lying around in here. I finally tried my hand at an acrylic album. Yeah, so NOT a fan! Ay ay ay, these are hard to do! I listed it yesterday and it sold today (by convo - gotta tell her to 'take' it from my store). I may have to try my hand at another (or two because that's what I still have here) but then I think I'm done with acrylic. Here's a picture of it:

Now I have to put this kit away because I have to work on a make and take for the LP Crop this weekend (more about that later). But before I put it away I made this:

It used to hold my black peppercorn :) You all know how I hate to throw anything out! I don't know what I'll use it for but at least it's not in the garbage! I have empty baby food jars and peanut cans (cardboard ones) and all kinds of stuff I can't get rid of but don't have time to do anything with. Gosh, have I always been this frugal??

So, this weekend Life Preservers Club is hosting an online crop to celebrate it's sixth year!! Happy Birthday, LPC!! There will be lots of challenges and PRIZES and a few make and takes (one hosted by yours truly). Please join us! The crop starts tomorrow, Friday, at 7p and runs through Sunday. All you have to do is sign up to the message board (that does NOT sign you up for any kits) and get to know the most beautiful bunch of ladies ever! They have become like family to me so I know you'll love them too. And how's this for an incentive: If you complete my make and take project and post a link here, I will put your name in a drawing for a PRIZE!! WOOHOOO! You'll have to sign up to see what my make and take will be :)

In etsy news: I snagged another treasury!! This one I dedicated to my uber-talented teammates on Etsy In Spanish. Check it out:

I think that's all for now. I hope to 'see' you this weekend at LP!!


  1. Melissa!! Your acrylic albums is beautiful!! I am shooting myself for not ordering that Pink Paislee Kit from LP. A girl never learns. :( I'll be seeing you this weekend at the crop - and then i'll be back!! Congrats to Ava...that's awesome - sleeping in her own crib!! WOOHOO...you could actually do adult things in your own bed again. LMBO!

  2. Great way to repurpose your peppercorns jar! I'm sure you've got a heap of scrappy notions that would be perfect stored in there!

  3. Ahhh...it is so nice when they finally sleep in their crib for the WHOLE night!!!! Woo hoo!!!

    Can't wait for the crop either!!! I'm excited to see what you have in store for us!

  4. Too bad the kit is hard to use. It is adorable.


Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
