Cocoa on a Windy Day :)

Well, I’m just sitting here drinking cocoa with my 4 year old. It’s a nice sunny but windy here in Vegas, about 62 degrees outside. We just got out of the spa, took a little dip while the little one napped (don’t worry, took a monitor out with us) What a nice time. She got some one on one attention with me. We painted each other with a squirty toy and she practiced floating around a bit. I had to practice not floating – my pregnant tummy wanted to float up without the rest of me 🙂 lol. Ohhhh, there goes the little one, she’s beckoning.

Okay so she is awake. Just brought her downl She does the silliest things, crinkles her little nose at me and shoots me a funny look. Right now she is sitting across from me, trying desperately to pop a blue balloon. She keeps saying “POP, POP, POP” and sitting on it, bouncing on it, falling off, anything to get the darn thing to pop. lol. I’m feeling pretty lucky to spend these days at home with my kids. Not everyone gets to do that.  Here’s a funny thing that just happened with my oldest. She was so excited to get her strawberry shortcake book down and color it. She got it down then decided she wasn’t sure she still would color. When I asked her about it, she said, “oh, I guess I could just color with black” hahahhaaaa so funny. I was confused for a second then realized that it’s just about the only color left for her to color with, poor thing. The little one has broken all the rest. I guess it’s a good thing I have a spare set in the cupboard.

Now my 4 year old is singing to the balloon to come down from the ceiling, lol, and my youngest is yelling at it “come on, come on” telling it to come on down. I’m just glad they aren’t climbing all over my desk mauling me like usual!  This is my favorite time of year, Spring! The weather is perfect here. I’m glad to be rid of Winter. We can go outside and enjoy the parks, go for walks, and enjoy the spa. We get to look forward to Summer’s in the pool. The little one just pulled down Mr. Fuzzy (looks like a fuzzy worm on an invisible string) and was holding the string, when she walked, he walked with her and it scared the crap out of her!!! My 4 year old tried to show her it’s okay but she wasn’t having it. She screamed no no no! Well anyway, there’s just a small snippet of what it’s like around here, these days!

Commercial Use – This Old Book

I’m not sure if I showed everyone this old book, but it sure is cute and commercial use and scrap for hire is permitted. So you can do tons with it! Use it for journling, use it as a frame, wrap it with ribbon, clip it, rubberband it, stick a bookmarker in it, use your imagination!

Terms of use require: If used for commercial purposes, thank or credit VIVAYNE in your Terms of Use, included with the file.

Kite Flying

Today was a great day. I was able to update my Scrap Outside The Box store and put more product for sale in there. I only have two items left and then my store is fully updated. Phew!! Finally I will be less worried about that and maybe I can concentrate on actually doing some designing. I feel like I’ve been so busy just trying to keep up – with setting up all my product at 2 more stores, picking up CT, having CT move on, keeping up on blog freebies so my traffic doesn’t die off, making my portion of exclusive collab kits for the sites I design at, setting up my first forum challenge (fontalicious at SOTB), and trying to get a new items into the stores… yikes, what did I get myself into?? lol.

Now I am looking to add 2 more people to my creative team, the gals I have now are fantastic and we just lost Pebbles (she was a fab team member to have). I know it will be hard to fill her shoes but with the team I have now, I’m confident we can make it work!

So, on to why it was a great day… this afternoon my 4 year old was outside with my husband and said “Daddy can we go fly my kite today, it is a windy day” so he said “sure.” Now, you could not ask for better kite flying weather… It was blissfully breezy, just a nice cool breeze blowing on a warm day. The breeze felt so good out in that grassy field. It didn’t even give us a chance to get hot.

Flying the kite was effortless practically 🙂 All we had to do was hold the kite off the ground for a second, and it lifted right up into the sky. My 4 year old was so excited to hold it, but I think it surprised her how strong the kite was pulling! My one and a half year old was reaching up to the sky, jumping and saying, “kite, kite, kite.” She was so excited to run in the grass and play. She even saw some other little ones her age. She was trying to hold their hands and looked like she wanted to just hug hug hug them! It was so sweet. After Daddy took the kite handle again, both girls just ran around together under it, jumping and playing and watching it dance up in the sky. It was really cool.

After a bit, the excitement wore off so we walked over to the playground and let them play. Wow, what a good idea! After getting the little one used to the little slide, Jason and I actually got to visit without kids constantly interrupting. Well, other than the occasional fright (worried the little one would fall from way too high), lol, we were able to hold down a conversation – in daylight! Ha ha ha.  We stayed for a couple of hours at least. When we got home, we turned on the spa. It was just so very enjoyable. Jason threw some steaks on the grill and we all hung out in the warm water (with the brrrrrr cold breeze blowing) while the steaks cooked. Life it good. I feel so blessed.

And to top it off… It was soooo easy to get the girls to sleep, full tummy’s, wore out, and passed out! 🙂 We didn’t get any pictures today, it was all just spur of the moment. But what a nice day it was!

Charity Kit and a Free Quick Page

Hello everyone!!! I’m so glad you stopped by today! I have a FREE digital scrapbooking QUICK PAGE to give to you but first please take your time and read below we have some special events coming in March at Scrap Outside the Box!!

First, I would like to INVITE YOU to this freebie filled crop we will be having on SUNDAY March 1st at 10 pm Eastern time, 7 pm Pacific time! Don’t miss a thing, we are kicking off CUSTOMER APPRECIATION month and a very special CHARITY kit!
It is PACKED full of goodies, great for scrapping (an awesome value) and it’s for a great cause. 100% of the proceeds will go to the family of baby Mckenna!
A Mother’s Love was created by the thoughtful and generous designers of Scrap Outside the Box to help the family of McKenna Elise Conrad. McKenna was born January 12, 2008 with a cleft lip and cleft palate, which occurs in one in every 500 births. Now one-year-old, McKenna has already undergone numerous procedures to repair her cleft lip, resulting in $5,000 in medical bills. She is scheduled to undergo palate surgery on March 6 and that amount will more than double. Sadly this is all after health insurance has been paid. Her family is in dire need of financial assistance and you can help.

McKenna is very near and dear to our hearts, because she is the niece of Scrap Outside the Box owner, Dani Fenning. It seems only natural that we reach out to her family in the best way that we can, by creating a sharing a fabulous charity kit and donating the proceeds to this needy family. A Mother’s Love is the perfect title for this warm, colorful collaboration full of flowers, butterflies and rainbows. What better way to show that you care while getting a beautiful kit in return.

All proceeds from the sales of A Mother’s Love will go directly towards the family’s medical expenses. Your help and support are greatly appreciated.
