Percy Jackson

The boys and I went to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Valentine's Day. They just adore anything that resembles fantasy/science fiction. The movie was great and I look forward to the next one. Mason realllllly liked all the mythological creatures and already wants to go back again. His favorite was the minotaur.... kinda creepy to me. :)
I've read the first book and am starting the second one. The movie did veer off the original book but was super entertaining none the less. :)

A few cards to share....

I recently had a chance to get a few cards done that I have had swirling around my mind..... the 2 black cards were inspired by the button set that I got in Tessa Ann's button shop on etsy. The other wedding card was just a fun one using the Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts that just came out. It felt sooooo good to do SOMETHING crafty for once!!

Mason's Valentine Box

So last week, Mason comes home with a flyer from Mrs. Hastings about his Valentine's Party. They were going to have a contest for their Valentine containers. There were 4 categories and Mason had set his eyes on "the COOLEST container". **sigh** So instantly, my mind starts turning about a cute V-day mail box.... cute colors with Mason's name on it.... hearts...candy.... cute little ribbon.... THEN I woke up... I was totally in my own little dream world of girly Valentine's Day containers.... Mason declared that he wanted a container that had ANYTHING to do with army.... nothing says I love you like ARMY stuff. So off we went to Joann's and picked out some camo canvas and went searching for military stickers..... The up side to this whole thing was that I just HAD to go to 4 crafty places to find it all. ;) So after scraping Southern Colorado scrapbook stores, we FINALLY managed to pull it off. Mason was very much the perfectionist throughout this whole thing.... I am REALLY afraid that he gets that from me...
And THIS was the final product. ENJOY!!

He is very proud of it and told me that he wouldn't "smoosh it in his backpack, Mom. I think I'll carry it into school." Well THAT'S a relief!!

Ice Fishing!!

I, for one, am sooooo glad to have been home this trip. The boys had a ton of fun on Lake Granby and kept fairly warm thanks to Trafton and his hunting blind. Their friend Tracey managed to catch a big one and that was all the boys needed!!! They were skunked but came back with lots of fun memories!! Landon and I had a very WARM and relaxing weekend!! Fishing is one thing.... ice fishing is a WHOLE different world for this Cali girl!!
Brent and Trace having some male bonding time!!

Trafton and Mason enjoying/braving the elements....
This was the biggest fish they caught this weekend!! Mason hoping for a whopper!!

Handmade twill from Lillalotta

Those of you who know me, KNOW that I have a small obsession with ribbon. My Mom actually found Lillalotta on etsy and we are both in love!! Based in the south of France, this handmade twill is too cute not to get!! The shipping is very reasonable too!! You have to at least check out her cute designs!! Makes me want one of everything!!

This is absolutely ADORABLE in person!!
I only WISH I had a cat so I can use this!!
This makes me think of my sweet Mom in-law....
And who can resist muffins and cupcakes...
