Not too much happening around here this weekend. Was awoken pretty early this morning by a MUCH WELCOMED and NEEDED thunderstorm , remnants of hurricane Dean. Always love a good storm here in the desert since they are far and in between.
Hung out with Austin most of the day and spent a little time finishing up my dresses for the swap over at SPECKLED EGG .This was such a fun little swap to be in cant wait to get all the pretty dresses from all you talented girls!

My how fast they grow up! He had a great day besides a little mishap with his lunch , that was mistakenly taken by another child . It was more upsetting to me I think because he wasn't given a lunch AT ALL , but anyone who knows me KNOWS I took care of that this morning ...lol! Going back to school is a good thing around here these days. For starters it means a CLEAN HOUSE (WOHOO), since it will just be Lil ole me hanging around all day.... it also means a step closer to his daddy coming home. I keep telling him that school will make our time here without him go by so much faster. I think 2nd grade with Mrs. Gossard is going to be a FUN ONE!
Haven't had anytime to sit down and craft but I plan to get back to it soon. I did receive some wonderful mail this past week. My box from Sonya at LOVE OF YELLOW ROSES ,she was my partner for the CUPCAKE SWAP and boy did she spoil me .There was a yummy cake mix , frosting , sprinkles and cute little baking cups (which by the way ) we all ready have eaten! Some wonderful vanilla butter cream hand and body lotion (that smells good enough to eat) a SUPER MOIST CAKES recipe booklet that IO LOVE and the cutest handmade pieces with the same matching CUTE CUPCAKE , I love them all! Thanks again Sonya!
Then I received some goodies all the way from Germany from the sweet and very talented Nicole at SMALL TREASURES , my partner for the Tussie Mussie Swap. I had seen snippets on her Flickr and was so excited to finally see the rest it is GORGEOUS don't ya think and the goodies inside were fabulous too. Yummy vintage wallpaper, pink and blue tickets , some millinery flowers that I ADORE , trims and trinkets , and the cutest little bird cards ever and lots more goodness! Thanks NICOLE!
Crafty friends are the greatest ,especially all the new ones here in BLOGLAND. I was given the
by Maria at the JUNKDRAWER and I guess you are supposed to nominate others. Everyone is so nice here , that it would be hard to just pick one, So I want to give it to all you sweet girls , and especially the ones who's blogs I frequent listed over on my SIDEBAR!!!
Hope everyone is having a GREAT WEEK :)

Here are her 1st two aprons! What is going on I have no patience to even attempt an apron and hers look so cute!
We went to a few thrift stores last week where she had me get an ugly rusty metal index card box and here is the end result after a night of crafting at the JUNKDRAWER. Did I mention it was the cutest thing made that night?
