Whose been busy?? This girl!

So this weekend I wrote myself out a huge list craft-wise that I wanted to accomplish, and what do ya know? I finished all but 1!!! Let me tell you this list was pretty darn long too!

Here are some things I finished

~Valentine's Day Cards for the swap, yep all 25 of them.. I want to make a few more for friends that didn't participate in the swap because I have so much left over stuff and it was so much fun. SO if you want to swap with me let me know. You can either comment here or e-mail me, either works :)

**Note** I will post pics of all 25 cards (yes all 25) because each of them is very different and I love the way they turned out. I will do this AFTER everyone has received theirs as to not ruin the surprise.

~ I finished a treasure box for a very special friend of mine, I'm not going to show the whole thing, just part of it. Something has to be left for a surprise :)

~ I blinged out Max's collar for a Style School project, with what other than buttons! This project was perfect for me. I was downstairs putting it together and Max was scratching at the door crying because he wanted his collar back. I showed it to him and he kept licking it.. What.a.cutie! He is definitely the most Stylin' doggie!! :)

Here is the manliest dog you'll ever see... :)

I had to take like 100 pics to get a decent one, he kept jumping around and not cooperating.. thank you Max

Here is a close-up

~ I made a pink panda themed felt make-up bag (which will probaby turn into a nail polish holder since they are scattered everywhere), which was another Style School project. I named her Kua, which means pretty in Chinese. I LOVE LOVE her. I'm going to get a cute pink zipper and maybe that plastic vinyl stuff to put on the inside, anyone know where to get that? I want it to be a little more sturdy. This is by far, my favorite project. I love how much I am coming into my style, this class is amazing!!!

Isn't she the cutest pink panda ever???

~ I also did 2 more Style File pages. One is wardrobe and the other is for Life Inspiration. I am already having trouble closing my binder and still have many pages planned. I'm hoping to find a way to maximize the space so I don't have to upgrade binders.

Here is the pic of Life Inspiration, I got the embroidered leaf in the ornament swap and had to include it because it went so well with my nature theme. I have no idea who made it, so if you do, please let me know so I can give them credit :)

Here is my Handbag Heaven page.. gosh I love hobo bags. I need to find a cute one because I'm in serious need of an upgrade.

~ I watched so many VH1 reality shows my eyes hurt. HAHA that one is for Jamie.. Yes I watch Tough Love, Frank the Entertainer, and Jersey Shore.. There is just something about Hot Mess' on TV that make me giggle with glee.. It's one of me and my hubby's favorite things to do on Sunday's, well besides watching the SAINTS win their game so they are now going to the SUPERBOWL!!!! WHO DAT?!?! Ok I'll save that for another post.

~We made up a family day.. Dance Saturdays.. that's right we just dance around the house with the kids, just randomly... It's great exercise and I hear so many giggles my heart leaps with joy. I hope to keep it ongoing, we were so tired after our little dance marathon, the kids were pooped and we burned like tons of calories :) Then stuffed our faces with oreos...perfect.

~I organized my craft room again after the disaster I left from all the card-making.

In other AMAZING news, Kaylee has a tooth!! Her VERY FIRST one! She hasn't made a peep, so I had no idea until I went to clean her gums, and low and behold...a toothers!! For those that didn't know, we were worried because at now 15 months old she didn't have one. So thank goodness we don't have to go through dental x-rays!! I'm hoping the rest of her teeth come in this quietly *knock on wood*. Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
