|well, i finally used my first tin that i purchased a month or two ago, from papertreyink, (which i love! this company is the best!) anyways…..i’ve been waiting to create with them, and found mother’s day to be the perfect time.
their website and blog have many great ideas for these tins.
|i used a beach theme for this particular one, (thinking of the person it would go to)…i covered the bottom of the tin with one type of paper, then covered the inside bottom, with another type, (still in the same theme line).
on the top, i put a coordinating rub-on.
each piece of candy, (hershey nuggets), are wrapped with a strip of paper in the same theme.
i wrapped a piece of matching ribbon around the oustide bottom of the tin and also tied it with a piece of the same ribbon.
|only a few more episodes of The Office!
tonight @ 9pm!
|if you are looking for a good book to read, try this one–sisters, ink. i just finished it! not only is it great Christian fiction, but the story also revolves around scrapbooking! there is a second book to be released in June.
so visit your local Christian bookstore, shop online at cbd.com, or check out your library! grab this book, an iced coffee, a chair in the sun & enjoy!

|just wanted to say hello. i’ve been a bad blogger lately.
just been busy with life and enjoying the wonderful taste of summer that we’ve been experiencing. i love the sun.
nothing too exciting to report. it’s garage sale weekend in our neighborhood, so that’s kept me busy and that’s where i will be tomorrow. not shopping. selling.
new found love at Starbucks; Iced Skinny Mocha. in a huge venti, there are only 110 calories. it’s fabulous!
still eating under 1400 calories a day. still using my-calorie-counter.com. which i highly recommend to anyone trying to keep tabs on their weight. thrilled that my clothes are too loose after losing weight—been shopping!!! such a good feeling to have an EXCUSE to buy new clothes! have gradually increased my work-out, up to 50 minutes on the treadmill, while lifting weights.
have actually spent time in God’s Word each morning. that’s a good feeling.
looking forward to school being out and opening our pool for the summer. unfortunately, not for another month or so.
have NOT scrapped in the last few weeks. hoping to grab some time next week.
well. that’s that. (oh ya. i wanted to say a quick “hello Cady!”. she is my #1 faithful blog-reader). 😉
