Today, I played a bit with the new "Sew Special" stamp set from Crafty Secrets. It's really a fun set. You can see all the images HERE.

the lace and the zig zag stitching are both stamps. Be sure to check out the Crafty Secrets gallery to see all the beautiful things done with this set ...and others.

I've been meaning to show you this gorgeous bird image I got for Christmas. It's the perfect colors for my living room.. and you know.. I love birds!
Every time I look in Jarad's room now.. it's defiantly a reminder he's got a place of his own now. Boy is it bare! He purchased a bed yesterday at Nebraska Furniture Mart, and bought a used washer and dryer from someone at work. It's in really great shape .. and was a steal. He still has plenty to get from here..but just little things. He has the big things moved.


It's REALLY cold, and the forecast is for more snow tomorrow. More snow! ish... I'm ready for Spring!



Have a great day!
