Heartland Paper company

I went to a really fun store today it's the Heartland Paper Company. Oh they had such cute stuff. They have plain colored cardstock that they are discontinuing that is .30 a sheet I think and this Saturday you get and extra 25% off your total order. Awesome Awesome Awesome. You can also order online and have it shipped to you. They have some really cute craft kits to make either in their classes or do them at home. But my major find of the day is the bottle caps. I don't know if you have seen the bottle cap necklaces or the bottle caps as the center of flower girls clips but they turn out so cute. Well after searching high and low for them I found there here and the best part they are only .10. WOW! Well happy crafting.

Things that must go/ Dear So and SO

So I was reading blogs this morning and found Texas Monkey's  way to be a cute nice way to pretty much say things that are bothreing us. Love it! If you live in Utah there is a radio station that is x96 with Keri, Bill, and Gina that they give their list of things that must go and I have loved it because all their "things" are spot on. They just don't say them as nice and as cute as Texas Monkey has. SO Here is my first Dear So and So or Thing that must go.

#1/ Dear Next Door Neighbor,

Annoying Neigbors. Although I realize that you moved in before me that doens't mean my yard is part of your yard. That is the glory of having yards. You can do what you want to your yard (like putting up a rock wall along the back of your property and the rocks rolling down and hitting my kids swing set without a complaint from me) and I can do what I want with mine, like putting up a fence, Oh YES I CAN DO THAT! Cutting down trees in MY yard. Especially when they are dead or hitting my roof top and tearing it apart. I would like to do this without hearing you saying lound enough for me to hear, "Oh no they are cutting down my trees." Let me clarify they are not your trees. They are mine. My yard. My trees! Oh and no I don't want your broken dog house that you are just to lazy to take to the dump so please leave your junk in your yard and not drag in down to my yard asking me if I want it and when I tell you no I don't you act put out and say you don't want to drag it up the hill. Well you shouldn't have dragged it down here to begin with. Right? 

Your annoyed Neighbor.

P.S. Please keep your vecious dog in your yard because if it trys to bite my son again, I don't think I would hesitate to kill it.

Garden Planted---Check

So I have been out of touch with reality but have been a very busy mama as of lately. With my 5 1/2 month old being sick for the last 2 months and just wants to be held I haven't been able to get a lot done so the little bit of free time I do have has been spent trying to get caught up on all the stuff I am getting behind on. But today we were able to finally break down and get the garden planted.

Last week we spent cleaning up the back yard and getting all the leaves raked up and burned. Down side off all of that is we had tilled the garden already and then burned all the leaves so we had to retil the garden but had to wait for it to dry out again since we got another storm in. Do you ever feel like you just go from one project to the next only to start back at the begining. Well that is about where I am at lately. Anyway the garden spot finally dried out enough for us to retill it and get it planted. Just in time to because as we were doing it another storm was brewing and the winds have really picked up tonight to send in the storm. PHEWWW.

I have had a little bit of time though to get my fence built or at least sit back and tell my hubby how to do it. When I get it completly decorated I will post pictures. Oh and of course the garden.

Branches and Trees

So we are finally getting a good start to cleaning up and redoing and making our back yard look better. We are going to start cutting some trees down and cutting up the trees that are already down on the ground and dead. Any Ideas on what to do with it all? I am trying to think of every creative idea I got and nothing.

5 min for mom blog party

Hey everyone from Ultimate Blog Party 2010 welcome my little piece of cyber space that gives me that little break in the day every now and again. I just recently started doing the whole blogging thing, mainly for my own sanity. I say this because after having my 4th baby in November and having 3 of the 4 in diapers things get pretty crazy around here. I needed something to give me a mental break from everything at the end of the day.
 As I saw some crafts and things I kept thinking, I can make that for a whole lot cheaper. Being on a budget I am always looking for a great deal. So I started doing diffrent things now I am addicted to crafting, scrapbooking, cooking, quilting, blogging and the list goes on. So this was my way to journal it I guess and share it with friends, family and those friends I haven't met yet.
In my blog you can find anything from recipes, home med remidies, Great bargins I have found and the biggest thing on here is cheap ways to make your own crafts. I am not a very crafty person but I am learning.  I hope you enjoy looking through my blog and maybe get an idea or find something you like.
OH and as for the prizes I would like to win at this point any prize is good right. But hey being a mommy of 4 kids so yes something for them to play with would be awesome (not that they don't have enough toys) but something for me would be even better. (not being selfish here)

Mothers brag Book-Or whatever else you would like to use it for

Alright everyone I am so exctied to post this project because I was so excited to do it. I am not trying to not give credit where it is deserved but I am not sure the blog I found this on but I do know it came from either Someday Crafts or Somewhat Simple on one of their craft swap days where everyone can post their diffrent stuff they did. If I need step by step instructions I print it off so I have the link but if I figure I can do it myself I don't.
My biggest reason for being excited to do this project is because it solves one of my biggest problems/irritation. Wallet size pictures. I know weird huh. But for a long long long time now I am so frustrated for with wallet size pictures. They are never the right size you always have to cut them down to fit in you little picture wallet things that come with your wallet. By the time you get it cut down half your picture is missing. Then they never provide enough picture holders. I think my wallet right now has 4. Well my four kids, my family picture, my picture of my hubby and me, well the list goes on and on. With this you still have to cut it down but not near as much and you can have as many as you want or as many as the binder ring will fit. I made this one for me and we are going to make one for Karli of course (she has to have everything I have) so she can put pictures of her friends or her sibblings in it. I am going to make one for Payton, Ashton, and Kalin for church to keep them quite. It should work for maybe 10 min if I am lucky. They are perfect to put in your purse, backpack, desk at work, almost anywhere to show off your kids, family, dogs, cars, cats and any other weird things you want to show off.

So here you go.

Supplies Needed
Name Badge Holder- Walmart for I think 2.68 for twelve sleves
Binder ring
Scrapbook Paper

Simple just put your binder ring through the holes of the name badge holders. Tie ribbion on your binder ring. Make a cute cover page with your scrapbook paper. Wala under 5 minutes and under $5.00. Awesome Deal.
