I no longer use disks, and still had a whole pack of them!

The notebook:

I slid the flap in the disks to expose the hole, I cut the papers to fit, these are from Dollar General, This big pack was $1.  I marked my placement and  punched the holes in the papers,  Then put it all together with rings.

The Candle holder:  Simply hot glue 5 disks together, add a candle.  This would be great to hold a cube of memo paper, or even a pile of Post It notes.  Such a wonderful gift for the techy loved one, or a tech teacher!

These would have been chucked in the trash, but this is a great way to reuse.

Princess “Dream Big” Mini Album created for My 2yr old


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

OH MY GOODNESS !!! I just found “slide show”!!!¬† Im getting a little happier about moving from Blogspot by the minute.

I created this mini in a motel, where the baby and I went to work with my hubby, we stayed 8 days, he left before daylight and returned¬† about 11pm 8 days in a roll!¬† No pool, no microwave, no refrigerator, only about 9 channels on the TV and no breakfast!¬† It was horrible….I did get this sweet mini out of the deal and when we moved motels we were in a super lux motel with an indoor pool, free totally wonderful breakfast bar where they loaded you up for your room before you left, Big fluffy towels, hot tub, and an awesome suite with 2 big screen TVs, and a beautiful bathroom with a huge tub,¬† that we were able to bring all the children.

Traditions Simply Elegant Mini Album


I dont even know where to begin, so much is crammed in this mini! ¬†Lots of Dollar Tree embellishment stickers, Lots of Prima stamps, K&Co Paper Moss form Dollar Tree, Dollar tree satin roses, ¬†Flowers I made, Flowers friends made, Flowers bought in bulk. Cricut Cuts, Package inserts, The bird on the bottom of the second page was hand cut. ¬†The kep holes are a Tom Holts Sizzix Die. ¬†The pink rose and the love charm were gifts from Krista, from Krista’s Paper Cafe. ¬† I must however tell you, the paper piecing of the bird in the gold cage, was bought on Ebay, I couldnt resist him, and I dont remember who it was. When I find out, I will definitely (as always) give credit where credit is due! ¬†The mini is simply healed together by a thick string of jute. ¬†I love the simple graceful elegance of this one!
