A Chubby Pink Owl and a Little Digi

Yesterday, I got Etsy mail.
Yay !!


I had ordered from Jadedmind - http://www.jadedmind.etsy.com/ - and received my order very promptly, a very gracious seller. I also got the final result of my Alchemy request... a little chubby bright pink owl for my cell phone. He's adorable ! He was made by kishcrafts - http://www.kishcrafts.etsy.com/ I just love him. So unique and fun. I think he needs a NAME.
I've also been doing a lot of blog reading lately and found a new digi scrapping site, Tangie Baxter Design... there are several freebies (**freebies !! wahoo !!***) on their blog - http://tbdloft.typepad.com/ I love the colors of the site and the overall feel to it. Digital scrapbooking is a lot of fun and really rewarding. I have several friends who were scared at first to try it but did and were happy they did. The thing that kept me from doing digital pages was the fear that it would be really expensive to get them printed. I found out that you can get them printed at Costco quite inexpensively. The helpful cashier guy at my Costco clued me in to an even cheaper way to get your 12x12 pages printed... they offer even larger sizes and if you're ok with a photo editing program (I use photoshop elements) you can put your layouts together in one file and have them printed in this bigger format and then just cut them apart. I recently made an album full of 8x8 digital pages for my grandmother's 90th birthday party and most people didn't even realize they were made digitally. :)

Hi! I'm on Tangie's CT and she told us about your post! I've only been digi scrapping a year and I am totally addicted. Paper for 10 years before that! I wish we had a Costco!!!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.


We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
