My Review

Fun game for little boys

By Val from Phoenix, AZ on 12/31/2009


5out of 5

Pros: Educational, Cute, Good for young children

My 3 and a half year old loved this game. He enjoyed adding the people to the bus and taking them off, (I like that he was learning how to add and subtract!) The graphics were really adorable, bright and colorful. Would make a great gift.

January Sussies Sneaks

The January Scrapbook Sussies kit was fabulous, I even made a few altered items that I have really been wanting to do. It was so nice to have boy and girl themes to play with. I never have a lack of pictures for inspiration in that department!

Cheery Cards

Head over to the Scrapbook Sussies blog for some great holiday inspiration from all the designers. A couple days ago I posted a little "how to" on making a card book for all those Christmas cards you get this time of year. Below are some cards made with the December Sussies kit.

It was cloudy all day, which is so uncommon for us. I needed some sunshine.

Trying to explain my excitement to my hubby about scrapbooking, blogs, and so on isn't quite working... So for people that understand that world:)
I got the Two Peas weekly email and my whisk project was featured on it!! Guess it had made the top 10 by views, super fun.
I used tags from Elle's Studio, they have details of which exact tags on their blog.

I don't think I have ever made a post without a photo, so here is one of my new favorites. Nana always keeps us well stocked in the shoe department.

Put on Your Game Face

I will be reviewing a super cute game from this online toys site very soon. Toys And Games have a TON of fabulous toys, games, and stuffed animals. We have been really getting into things that we can do at the dining room table in the evening as a family. Speaking of games...
The weekend after Thanksgiving we went to Dallas to visit with friends, family, and to see the new Cowboys Stadium! A billion plus dollars makes for one awesome game day experience. Sadly, our Bears lost- but we had such a great time at the game. My mom surprised us by coming into town, so we didn't have to take the little one to the game. We still put her in a little cheerleader outfit. Of course!

Some Christmas Crafts

I will be making more of these for teacher gifts! I ended up wrapping tulle around the whisk, since those pesky kisses were wanting to fall out.

I am a sub for bunco, and got notice that I would be joining for the Christmas themed night. I rushed over to Hobby Lobby to pick up an ornament for the exchange after bunco- and they were cleared out of ornaments! Slim pickings. Since we use a crown for bunco, I just jazzed up a mini crown with ribbon and added the tag.
We finally got all of our indoor decorations completed. Hopefully we will get some outdoor lights out before Christmas comes.

December Scrapbook Sussies

Oh my, this was one of my favorite Sussies kits, just love it! Sadly, it looks like it has sold out, but there are always plenty of other cute items in stock. I also did up quite a few cards, but I will save that for another day. Happy December!
