Xavier's Haircut

We decided to give our little Xavier a haircut yesterday. The weather has been so hot, it seemed like a good idea. And, it'll grow back soon. But, before it was done I already missed his baby curls.

And, just wanted to show off my newest Scrapbook Layout!

My New Obsession

I've discovered Digital Scrapbooking!
I'm super new at digital design in general, and only just got Photoshop Elements last week. But, I'm already loving how creative I can be with this medium.

I've got plans to make mini scrapbooks for the grandparents, personalized calendars, invitations, and detailed layouts to hang on the boys bedroom wall. I'm really excited to know that there is so much I can do with this skill, and am soaking up all the tutorials I can find!

Ice Cream for Breakfast

That's right, you read it. My boys had ice cream for breakfast today.

We go through a lot of bananas in our house. And, I don't complain since I like my boys to eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies.

Now that the weather has begun to warm up it's a perfect time for Banana Ice Cream, and why not for breakfast? After all it's 100% vegan, raw, and Organic (as long as you use Organic bananas)

I froze about 6 pealed bananas over night, then fed them through my Champion Juicer. It really is amazing how creamy it comes out. It looks just like vanilla ice cream, complete with little flecks (look like vanilla beans, are really bits of banana seeds). Anyway, my Shep Loves it (and so does his baby brother)! It's equal to regular dairy ice cream to him, maybe a little better since he gets to watch it being made and take part in the preparation.

I added a bit of 'Raw Goji Berry & Cacao Powder Mix' to add some more healthiness and make it look and taste a bit more special.

Needless to say, the bowl was empty in no time!

Watering Can

Here's my newest stamp. Just listed it in my shop this morning. And, I really love it :-)

It makes the perfect addition to Summer page lay outs, and garden inspired gift tags.

New Stamps

Just thought I'd share a couple of my new stamp designs here.

I love this branch! I wanted to make one that was more realistic and detailed than my original branch design. And, once I got the sketch just right I got to carving, and came up with this little beauty. I love that it can be used to frame something, a photo, a page, or a journal entry.

I have been wanting to make a crown stamp for a long time and finally decided on the design. I made it have just the right angle so that it can be placed atop something to 'crown' it.

I'm busy working on more and will be adding them to my shop with in the week!
