Project Friday!! MUST SEE!!

I have so many things I would love to share, 2 of my projects that I am super excited about I can't show until my Happy Mail partners get them though :( So for now I'll share one of the plushies I made for my BFF's daughter. Her birthday is Saturday so I made her a plushie that would match her room decor.

Meet Ms. Dot, she's 9 inches long and 6 inches wide. She loves the warm grass and sun on her wings! I'm sure she is going to love her new home, lots of butterflies to play with!

Oh and on Twitter I said "I am a genius", it's because our grass is still dead from the winter and I happen to have found some grass scrapbook paper I used instead. It was one of my "AH HA!!!" moments. I made myself laugh, that was all.. :P


I started working on my Tell Your Story journal for Elsie and Rachel's class, I am absolutely loving putting it together. I painted the pages a melon color last night and grabbed all the material I would be using. I haven't finished it completely yet.
I splurged on a little Japanese tape to go with my theme :)

So here is a sneak peek. I think I'm going to have a vintage feel throughout the entire book. I have so much stuff that I can use for it.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Tonight is Date Night for me and the hubs, first time going to dinner by ourselves in a year!! YAY!! Then, tomorrow I'm getting black low-lights put in my hair (pics will come soon after) and then a birthday party! I will also be working on a few more plushie projects requested by some friends :)
