Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween to everyone!!  What a beautiful day!  Crazy weather, it was almost too hot for the babies to be in their costumes!   Took them around the street in their wagon.  They weren't too impressed yet.  Next year will be more fun for them.  They just looked so cute though!!  My daughter is a total ham...I couldn't believe she was actually posing for me!!.....I had a smile and everything.  My son did pretty good too!  Despite the poor little guy never gets any sleep:(  We figured out he might have to get ear tubes......at least now we know why he is up so much.  But, he just started walking, which is AWesome!!!

Well, no really great coupon deals this week....I've just been too tired to put in the energy:(  Any extra time has been spent trying to catch up on household stuff....

So, on to the next holiday....the winter can be exhausting sometimes.....it's just one holiday after another.
Next is turkey day....

Wish I had time to do some of my artwork to post on here.  But, hanging out with my babies is so much more fun.....and pretty soon they will off in school and I'll be missing them like crazy....God I can't even think about that...it makes me sad and scared, I don't want them to go to school...or anywhere--I want them to always be with me..where I know they are safe!!!!

There she goes again!!!  She's always trying to escape:)

Wedding Photographs

I thought I'd post some of my wedding photography.  That way until I have my website up and running I can use this blog as my portfolio.

Well, my son started walking 3 days ago!!! How exciting!  We thought he was going to be walking on his knees forever.  He looks very cute while doing it, but his poor knees are so red:(
I think.... it's all their interaction with other children lately.  We have had a few playgroups and he's anxious to get up and go!  That way he can run away from other kids, when he steals their toys:)

So, I found this other cool website...called Swaptree...You can swap books, dvds and music.  You just pay the shipping.  I have listed all of my "wants"....but none of the "haves" yet...so I haven't done any swapping.  I'll let you know.

And I just discovered Matilda Jane.....so cute!  Look at all these photos..I love them!!  I love the style!  I really have to start working at my sewing machine...I would love to make some childrens clothing...Hats too!!
I absolutely love the ruffles on the pants!  Is it wrong that I wish they made little girls clothing in my size???  I just love all patterns and bright colors.   I use to have pink light up sneakers from Sugar, only a few years back!...The kids at the daycare where I worked loved them:)  They thought I was the coolest Pre-K teacher ever!  I have to find another pair of those!!!

So, does anyone else like ETSY????  I could stay on that website for hours!.......it's just awesome!  All handmade art/crafts...everything you could imagine.  And all the beautiful bags!  And Amy Butler fabric--luv that too:)  If anyone is thinking a Christmas gift for me--Amy Butler fabric off of ebay...is a cheap and easy gift:)...or a spa vacation in Sicily???

Well,,....it's off to bed for this tired Mama.
Peace to everyone on this rainy eve:)

Anyhow, here we are at the park again.   We love coming here and watching all the people/dogs and horses go by:)
With the upcoming season starting....baking becomes a necessity:)
Here is a cool baking website/blog you have to check out!  She is called bakerella--check out this pumpkin pie bite recipe--ohhhhh so good.  Can't wait to check it out around Turkey day:)

Also, MoneySavingMom-- a pretty cool website all about the coupon thing.  I've been doing great figuring out all the deals, but WOW--it's a lot of work!! Between cutting everything and organizing it....and planning the grocery list.  I have no time for anything else!  But it's worth it.  I bought $80 worth of stuff in CVS the other day for $15bucks!!! Yep, 3 packs of diapers/baby motrin/tylenol/poland springs water...tylenol for me..pretty cool:)

Just going through my cool website list.
Here is one--Hidden Door--they make hidden doors in your house...AWESOME!!! I so wish I could hire them!!!  I want a secret passage..like you wouldn't even believe.  I always wanted a wardrobe, like in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe!!  And this would be super-cool----someday I WILL have one:)
And here is a Polaroid website..in French.  But, I love French and Polaroid...so it's a great combination!!!

Polaroid transfers and emulsion lifts have always been my thing....I'll have to scan some in and post them!  They are so beautiful!! They look like paintings!  AHH I just love that style....Can't wait until I can get some studio time to get some done....I have way to many to catch up on!

Well...time to get some sleep:)
Hopefully, if the stars all align and no one is sick--a kids Halloween party on Friday.
My daughter will be a flower and my son a dragon:)
Bought them 2nd hand...so not much creativity this year.  Can't wait till I have the time to make them.  2 little ladybirds...one red and one blue:)  My 2 little ladybirds....luv them!!!!!
