Spring, Where Are You???

This winter weather has me feeling so blah....but spring is around the corner and I need to remind myself of that ;) Next week it is supposed to get up to 50 degrees, which is a heat wave compared to what it has been lol.

I went to Old Navy yesterday. They were having a 40% off sale for baby and kids so of course the charge card and I had a date, haha. There were just too many deals and it was a bit overwhelming. I even managed to score a really cute sweater for myself, for a mere $12.00.

Are these colors not amazing??!






I got some other cute things there too. Mainly for Chloe since she is the one in need of clothes the most.

Taylor and Hanna just got their report cards and I am so very proud of the both of them. Hanna (being in 1st grade) got all +s and is ahead of where she needs to be. Taylor got (3) As and (2) A+s. She is in 3rd grade and reading at a high school level. Like I said, I'm so proud :)

Chad is still laid off but we have high hopes that he will be returning to the railroad in March. It is tough times for so many people we know. I am just thankful that he has a job to return to. "This too shall pass" is what always comes to mind. We signed Taylor and Hanna up for camp this summer. It makes such wonderful memories for them. The local youth center sponsors half of their tuition so it is a great opportunity.

We are hoping to have our house on the market soon. The house appraised for about $15,000 more than what I was hoping for...I couldn't be more thrilled!!!

I also wanted to share some work I did for the Pink Paislee booth at CHA in Anaheim. Some of my other projects are on a different computer so I will have to share that work soon ;) They released four new lines; Captivating, Enchanting, Fetching, and Fascinating and all are fabulous in their own way. Holly and Rebecca are genius I tell ya!!

I did this mini album with the Enchanting line...it is all so beautiful.








I also wanted to share some work I did for CMK, it is using their January kit.








There are a few kits left if you're interested in purchasing one. February's kit was just released and it is gorgeous!!!

Have a wonderful week!

What beautiful stuff you have posted, Tina! I do get so inspired by your work! Love everything!
And Old Navy has got to be my personal favorite!! LOVE that place. Wish my daughter would still fit into the kids' stuff, but she's outgrown it. Gasp. Have had to start shopping in the adult section for her, but I'm not ready for that! Sigh!
