Mom wants that SHOT!

This week at the Mother LOAD we were working on using products that we really like.  Many of us apparently horde the products that we love.  I do not have that problem.  I buy 2, 3, 5 copies of things I love.  That way I’ve got another when I’m ready to use it again. How I got started with this LO was…  I first decided that I was going to do a Christmas LO.  I love Christmas, and have quite the Christmas stash.  Then I picked my newest … [Read more...]

My scrapping process

Last night I got home and made a bird house out of a shoe box and a pencil for Sean.  He has a parrot toy that can go on his wrist, and he was convinced that he needed a house for the bird.  He wanted something made of wood.  I thought, there is your new shoe box.  It’s the perfect size for a bird to sleep in.  I used my exacto knife to make a window, then poked holes into the sides with my crop-o-dile.  I stuck the pencils through the holes, and there you … [Read more...]

Make Me a CAPE Mom

With all that is going on in the house right now, one would think I wouldn’t have time to make a LO.  Lucky me has the Mother Load over at Big Picture Classes, and assignments to do.  So, I was supposed to use old stuff.  I didn’t.  Most of this is from my last Studio Calico kit. So, I loved those pictures I took of Sean in his new cape I made him, so that is what I went with.  I also bought him some super hero pajamas, which he loves.  He really wants … [Read more...]

A Batman cape!

Sean asked me for a Batman cape yesterday.  He went wondering around, looking for cape, asking Nana to help him.  So, I suggested that we should go to the fabric store and buy the fabric to make a cape.  Of course, Sean was ecstatic.  So, after dinner, we drove over to Beverley’s and bought some pretty blue fabric, then some yellow fabric to line the cape with.  I also bought some thread and bias tape to help complete the cape. So, easy peasy mac and cheesey. materials: 1 1/4 yards of … [Read more...]

The Mother LOAD

I’ve been a bit behind on my Mother LOAD at BPC.  I still need to take a picture of my scrap space, but I’ve completed the first assignment…  Create a LO of why you scrap.  Honestly, I scrap because I want to remember everything about Sean.  I’m just starting to remember stories about myself and my family.  But, I want to remember these little things, and hopefully help Sean remember.  As always Lain gives a great challenge. This is a memory … [Read more...]

Back home.

It never seems like we are gone long enough.  Lately we have been taking mini breaks.  A long weekend here, 5 days off there.  Never a week at the same time.  I so need a week. This time it was 4 days, 3 days at Disneyland and 1 day at home, just being at home.  Sean really seems to need that. The skinny on the trip…  3 times on Star Tours.  2 times on Little Mermaid.  3 times on Astro Blasters.  1 time: It’s A Small World, Autopia, … [Read more...]
