March B-day cards

I had the hardest time coming up with an idea for this months cards. I walked up and down the paper isle at Porters trying to decide what to do. I saw some birthday candle paper that inspired me and it just kinda went from there. I have to say these are one of my favorites.

This weeks SPT is "I'm saying I love you when I. . . . "

The daily ordeal of what to make for dinner is sometimes just too much. I get so frustrated trying to think of what to make and my honey knows this. So when I make dinner consisting of more than Mac N Cheese I am saying I love you.

And when I clean the toilets I'm saying I REALLY love you!

This week's SPT is "The first thing that attracted me to you was . . . . "

(both are engagement pic's)

For me let's just say I was in a bit of a funky stage in my life and Todd seemed to fit perfect. I loved that he wore jewelery like bracelets, rings, and necklaces (ok more like chains, not so girly sounding) and that he bleached his hair. I liked that punk kinda look with out going too far. A bonus for me was no earring. But mostly I loved that he could dance, and I'm not talking slow dance, the boy could move! (for some background we met at End Fest which was a concert, in the Seattle area, which featured like 15 different bands, and they were mostly punk bands at the time. Blink 182, Green Day, Zebrahead, etc. . . . in 1998)

Spring Cards

this month for our Stamp'n Up card exchange we were suppose to do a spring card. First thing I think of is flowers. Can I just say how much I am lovin my Cuttlebug. I use it all the time now. These scallop flowers were cut out with it and these great dies from Stamp'n Up. Actually most of the stuff I used this time was from Stamp'n Up, that doesn't happen too often with me, there are just too many cute things out there to put to good use.


Amazing enough I have a minute to get this done and it's not even 10pm yet.

This week to go along with the LOVE theme the SPT is
" I think it would be romantic to . . . . "

So I am not in any of these pictures so I don't know if it really goes along with the "self" portrait part but I think this would be very romantic, mostly because there would be no kids along at all.

I would love to take a cruise with my sweetie, even though he thinks they'd be boring. I could stand to lay out on the deck in beach chairs next to him and soak in the sun & beautiful view.

I would also love to stay at a resort where your room is right there on the beach and had these fabulous swing beds.

Honestly though, anywhere warm and sunny and quiet would be heaven and just being with him makes it romantic.

My good friend Dacia has these great costomer/hostess appreciation parties where she gives away a bunch of jewelry and I get to help her decorate for these. I so miss decorating wedding receptions and it's so fun to be able to do this once in a while. So these are the centerpieces I whipped up. I forgot to bring my camera so they're just on my coffe table and missing a few elements like two votive candles and some heart confetti. We also ran cute red with white polka dot wrapping paper down the food table and used our cute Crate & Barrel cakes stands.
She's such a fun person to do a party with, thanks for letting me help out a little.

by the way there is a wine glass in the vase in which we lit a tea light

My SPT's should always read SPT PM

This weeks SPT is
"I love it when you . . . "

This month is going to be a hard one for me to do as my husband is out of town. So I thought I'd do the best I could and make sure he knows how much I love him, miss him, and appreciate him.

I love it when he hears a song and thinks of me and lets me know.
(side note- I got an email from him letting me know what song he'd heard that made him think of me). It should be playing for you all now. I love to know that he's thinking of me as much as I am of him.
I love it when you put up with my crazy ideas, mostly for the parties I want to throw. And for all the times you helped me create the vision I had for a wedding receptions, even though it meant more work for you. (I use to have a wedding decorating business before we moved)
I love it when you play with the kids and make them laugh.

I love it when you just hold my hand.
