May, Memorial Day & Organization Tips

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you veterans and families!

What is my best organization tip?
Well, I am still working on that. I have found I must see my stuff if I am going to use it. I just bought these at Target and I am trying things out here and there. I have moved my stamps to the shelves so I can see them easier.

I do love the vertical storage for paper! Right now I have my solid color cardstock by color. ROY G BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) I have my patterned paper by manufactorer. I have just joined a kit club so I am working on the best way to keep it.

What a great way to spend Memorial Day! We went to the pool and visited with new neighbors. We are really enjoying getting to know our new town and neighbors! We ended the day with a cookout imagine our surprise when we looked up in the sky and saw both the moon and a rainbow!

Pictures from the last week. No particular order. We have had so much rain lately, please remember to "Wipe your paws"

Shhhhh, I am hiding.

May 20

R has a new bike with Training wheels! We took it out for the first time today!

Projects from this weekend

Box from the May Cocoa Daisy kit. I also used one of the stamps from Ali Edward's KOTM from CK.
A new Layout using stuff from Cocoa Daisy Jan. kit, Stampin' Up and buttons from Hobby Lobby.

Layout using the May Cocoa Daisy Kit. There is hidden journaling behind one picture. The green daisy is the pull tab. I double posted because I am having trouble with some of the post being too dark and I want to see which one I like better.

May 19

Here are the pics for May 19. It really needed 2!

R has been dressing himself! Yay! We are still working out the details.

More pictures a day

Two More days!

O.K.- After giving my naughty camera (how dare it lose my photos!) a time out, I have forgiven it and strarted snapping away. Hopefully I won't miss anymore May days!

May 19
The after picture. Would you give this man a job? He was getting ready to go spend the weekend with his big brother playing paintball. When I pointed the camera at him all he kept saying was, "I haven't fixed my hair!" I snapped anyway. I have to strike when the fire is hot. My older kids are hard to keep in one place long enough to get pictures!

May 17- Retail therapy!
I found these at Kirkland's. I now have two tables to use on each side of my bed and some goodies to hang on the wall above! Fun!

Mini book and banner

I jumped on the banner bandwagon! Here is one I did for M's birthday.
Here is one side of the accordian book I did for B's Mother's Day. Sssssssh. I haven't given it to her yet!

The other side.

The front cover.

May 14, etc

May 14
My littlest and I planted some flowers for my patio table.

On another note! My camera is losing pictures!!!!! I told my husband that I thought I was missing pictures that I thought I took. He told me to watch and see. (I take some many pictures I usually don't keep close track of them, I love digital!) Well, I know I took a before picture of my son's haircut and its GONE! He had all his hair cut off yesterday afternoon to aid in his job hunt for the summer!!! It's GONE!!! I am soooo bummed!

The 2 peas challenge is to named 3 things on your desk that do not belong there.
1. two towels to keep the cat hair off my scrap supplies.
2. A trash can to block the cat from jumping onto my scrap supplies

They really do rule the world!

Well, it's a little behind the times but I just bought my first Heidi Swapp ghost stencils. I have not had a minute to play with them. I can't wait to pull out all my stuff and try!
