It's a little QUiET around here!

Sorry we haven't been posting as regularly as we should....but we've actually been taking a break from our computers. My break is by choice...Annette's break is being forced on her by a computer that refuses to work for her. I feel her pain, and know how frustrating it is!

So...don't think that we've forgotten you. We just tend to get busy with real life this time of year. We both have sons leaving on missions for the LDS church that is keeping us busy as well! My son leaves June 16, and Annette's son leaves in July. Ugh...she's done this three times before with her older sons...I dunno how she's done it. I have a lump in my throat just typing this blog post. I think I might be a mess for a few days after we drop Jake off at the MTC *sniff*sniff*sniff*....but hey, don't get me wrong. I'm GLAD that he's going (and even a little anxious)....but I'm going to miss him like mad. Two years is a LONG time! Here's a pic of him with my dad outside of the Logan LDS Temple...awwwwww...where did the time go?

I've had so much fun working in the vegetable and flower gardens in my yard and getting my lawn into shape (between rain storms)...things are looking so beautiful! I've spent hours weeding, grooming and planting. I really love conquering the weeds and seeing the beautiful plants grow. I'm anxious for the first fresh peas...and well, I can hardly wait for the cherry tomatoes and cantaloupe harvest in a few weeks...two of my favorite things out of our vegetable garden.

I've been in a real "fix it and clean it" mood....I painted our picnic table set, painted some cute little red chairs for my grandkids (gotta find some cute fabric to make cushions) and have been de-junking the garage. I swear, we just did this a few months ago, and I'm still finding more things to get rid of.
When I'm not playing in the yard or garage, I've actually been making some cards...enjoying getting my hands dirty with papercrafts. Even though I love digital...I LOVE to make cards and have a stash of them on hand. I even tried some of Annette's adorable paper flowers on some graduation cards...way too cute. And no...I didn't take a pic...I'll see if I can do something about that ;)

So....that's a little update from one of the "Ettes". We're still here, still happy...and will get back to designing very soon....anyone interested in an "In Memory" themed kit? Hmmm...I kinda need to hurry with that one, don't ya think?

Annette's FIFTY is FaBuLoUS SaLE!

I know that she probably doesn't want me to advertise this...but my dearest friend, Annette, is having a birthday this we're having a sale! Check it out! ( are aware that she's OLDER than me, aren't you? :) *sigh* Now...if only she looked like it :P

We've both been slacking off for a couple of weeks, so we finally got busy and each of us turned out a new set of designs. (btw...we were working on these designs right up to the last you'll have to wait a few days to see what our wonderful Creative Team does with them!)

Annette put together this adorable "Simple Moments" Mini's just perfect for those everyday moments that you don't want to forget. Dang...I had a couple of those this week, but I forgot what they were. She should have designed this kit sooner *snicker*

During my slacking off time, I slept a bit more than usual--no less than 6 hours a night! I guess that was the inspiration for my new designs ;) I had a lot of fun putting together "In Your Dreams". . . it's perfect for those cute (and sometimes hilarious) "sleepy" photos of your friends and family.

My sister has some great pics that I wish I could have used for this kit. Lol..her hubby fell asleep (and of course, he's past 40 so his mouth dropped open). Their evil sons got some Pepperidge Farm fish crackers and filled his mouth up. Lol..they're hilarious, but unfortunately, I couldn't get my hands on them in time. Darn...that reminds me, I should have put a fish in this kit :P

I also created a set of "Click" Pages using the "In Your Dreams" Collection....LOTS of fun putting these together...and I'm only guessing that you can tell which one I did in honor of my brother-in-law...even if his picture isn't on it *snicker* have no excuses. We have some fantastic new designs....AND you get to save a bundle on them this weekend. So...go shopping, and then get scrapping!
