When Mom’s Happy…

…we’re all happy! 

I know I’ve been the not-so-great-blogger.  BUT!  I feel like I’ve been a pretty great Mom this week!  And that’s the best feeling!  It makes me happy!  The boys are on Spring Break and I’ve neglected ignored every job and chore and anything that resembles work…just to spend time with them.  And it’s been a lot of fun!!  Getting back into a routine is really going to be difficult.  I feel like I should play more PS3 while they’re at school.  I might be able to hang with them a little more then…hmm…then again, maybe not.  But it was fun trying anyway.  We hit the beach, rode the mini bike, flew kites, rode bikes and played ball!  We also washed the cars…just in time for ALL the pollen to cover everything…including inside the house because I’m lovin’ this weather too much to close the windows and turn on the A/C!  I’ve been playing in the flower beds while we’ve been outside.  So, there is some progress going on. 



Anyway, I made these adorable little guys before Easter to hand out to the guys that work with my husband.  I made a similar version for the ladies that help me with the PTA Labels committee.  They are made using the Ghiradelli chocolate squares, Naturals White and Pink Pirouette card stock, the large and small oval punches, 3/4” circle, Scallop circle, Word Window, Boho Blossoms and Heart to Heart punches.  A Basic Black marker draws in the details (whiskers, eyes and buck teeth).  His cute little bunny tail has Dimensionals between each flower.

They all loved their little handmade goodie!  I find that in most cases, at least in the circles that I run in, it’s not how big or expensive the item is.  It’s the simple fact that you took the time to do something for them at all.  That makes me happy!

I  hope you’ve been happily inspired in some way.
