Crazy Busy Times

Life has been a bit crazy around my house lately but in a good way. The kitchen tiling project has been underway for about a week now and is almost complete. My house has been in various states of messiness due to this but it is so worth it to finally have the kitchen tiled!

The other item that has been keeping me busy is prepping for this little girl’s birthday party. We had a bit of fun with the birthday invites.

Jaina wanted a super hero birthday party. Let me tell you, it’s not as easy as I thought it would be! It would have been much easier to come up with ideas if it was a particular super hero but I will make it work. I am currently working on the decorations. Here is a preview of what I have so far. I will post pictures after the party of how everything turned out.

Speaking of decorations, I better get back to painting!

Happy creating!

This has been one very long work week. I am so glad that it's Friday and a 3 day weekend to boot! The last of the kitchen renovation has begun thanks to the help of my wonderful father. The linoleum has been removed and the concrete is being cleaned and prepped for the new tile. I will post before and after pics once it's completed.

The girls enjoyed their Valentine's Day. They received a ton of candy. I think they devoured almost half of it already during their school parties but that's ok. We all have to indulge sometimes. One that note, here is a page I created using the Everyday Poetry line from Webster's Pages. My youngest loves lollipops so she was more than excited that she got several in her basket from mommy.

Happy creating!

The Ups and Downs of Sisters

Let me start by staying I am an only child so I have no clue how the relationships of siblings go but I have had a glimpse of it through my daughters. Some days they love each other dearly and other days they are at each others throats. Lately there have been lots of complaints of copycatting and tattle telling. Yelling and screaming. But then there are days where everything is right in the world and they get along beautifully.

Aryanna thrives on being a big sister and helping take care of her little sister. Sometimes I do have to remind her that she is not the mommy and needs to tone it down a bit. Jaina is the follower. The one who wants to be exactly like her big sister. She looks up to Aryanna a lot but is also her own strong willed person. Some days it just cracks me up at how similar yet different they are!

Here is a layout I did documenting the sisterly love between my two girls using the new Everyday Poetry and Palm Beach from Webster's Pages.

This layout was created as a lift of the talented Leslie Ashe over at Webster's Inspire Me. Make sure to stop by and see all the gorgeous inspiration from the other design team members.

Happy creating!
