Dream Garden ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're all having a beautiful week!

Well, I've attempted something new and finally finished it.  I made "somewhat" of an album .. but not quite a full album.  I decorated the entire outside with materials and lace .. I had a totally different idea in mind .. but of course did not turn out how intended.  hehe.

Then the inside is mainly papers and lots of pull out tags for journaling and such ...

Thank you so very much for visiting me .. I truly appreciate it and I would love to hear from you!  :)

Wishing you all a most WONDERFUL day!  See you again soon!

Going Back to Boho ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you all are ready for a fun filled weekend!  :)

Well, as some of you know .. I was born and raised in Hawaii.  Then I moved away from the islands, but most of my family and relatives are still there.  Growing up, I always remembered being drawn to Boho Chic things .. clothing, jewelry, bags.  Anything Boho .. I absolutely LOVED!

I love the laid back feeling of it, I love it being "hippy-ish", I love the "flowy-ness" to it all .. all those things make me feel like I'm back in the Islands once again enjoying the endless hours and days at the beaches with friends ..  and never left.  I don't get to dress in those things as much anymore, but I do buy a few Boho clothing items here and there when I find them.

Anyway .. I'd like to share with you my make of a Boho Chic lace bracelet that I've made!  :)  It took me awhile to finish .. but I had a ton of enjoyment making it .. all the whilst it taking me back "home" in my heart of hearts.

I hope you like it!

Thank you so very much for visiting me and I'd love to hear from you!  Wishing you a most WONDERFUL weekend!

Free To Fly ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you all had a beautiful weekend!

We had such a cozy rainy day on Sunday .. just one of those days where you cuddle up and enjoy the pitter patter sounds.  And our poor Max .. totally refused to go do his business all day long even though I would try to go out with him.  He looked at me like, "uh-uh.  No way .. I'm not going out in that rain.  Goodbye .. I'm going inside now where it's nice and warm."  hahahahahaha!

Well, here's a card I made a few weeks ago .. this sweet ballerina ready to fly ..

I've also added some feathers by the flowers .. because of her angel wings.  hehe!  And added a crochet doily at the corner.  The rub on "Free to Fly" is from Tim Holtz .. LOVE those rub ons!!

The lovely Prima ballerina can be found at The Ribbon Girl Store here, along with the Sweetheart Blossom Baby Pink and Hip Rose Buds.

Thank you so very much for visiting me and I wish you a most wonderful week!

The Sweetest Thing ...

Happy New Year to you!  Hope you all had a fabulous New Years Celebration and wishing you all a beautiful 2015!!!

I've made my first Spring card already as Valentines is now rolling round.  I can't believe the holidays are over .. it really is a bit sad to see all the Christmas things gone.  The fun times go just way too quick don't they?  :(

Well .. here's my card .. and I actually made TWO of them .. but the second one is a bit different in the middle .. I'll show you ... 

Here's the first one:

And this is the second one .. I used a different doily background, made different butterfly wings and a different butterfly center.  :)  

I also wanted to say a special thank you .. to all of YOU .. for coming to visit me throughout the year!  I truly do appreciate your visits and love hearing from you!

See you again soon!

The Present ...

Hey Ya's!  Did you all have a wonderful Christmas?!  I sure hope you did!!

We did as well .. and even though Bodhi had his questions about Santa .. he still wrote his note to Santa, left him candies and milk and woke up first thing in the morning to run and check if Santa came.  ;)  He had a blast opening up his gifts and was ecstatic with all the Lego Star Wars Sets he received.  hehe!

So, I've finally worked on the first layout of Bodhi's Inspiration Journal .. and I knew what quote I wanted to use on the first page from before anything ever started.  This quote stuck with me when we used to watch the movie "Kung Fu Panda" a few years ago ... and I thought it was so perfect for Bodhi to always remember these words.

For this layout .. I had quite a few inspiration from different places.  One of course is from the movie itself .. because of the quote and they were standing under a cherry blossom tree.  The second is from an artist named Vicky who does such amazing art journals!  And last but not least .. my own little Bodhi who himself inspired me to do a straw blowing cherry blossom tree last year and still up on our refrig (which I will show you a photo of also!)  :)

Now if you will notice .. the book also is a little surprise .. it will record my voice!!!!!!!  :)  Yes, I used one of Bodhi's old books that can record your voice on there as well .. so even when I am gone .. he will still be able to hear me ... 

I did the tree with blowing paint with a straw, but it did not spread as thin as I wanted it to be on the branches and kinda didn't go where I was trying to blow it  .. it was NOT as easy as I thought it would be!  lol!  Sure left me light headed though!!  sheesh!

There's Bodhi and I sitting on the branch having a sweet lil' talk about life .. 

I handwrote the quote:

"Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a Gift.
That is why we call it ..
The Present."

So I added some gifts and presents from Tim Holtz dies under the tree.  ;)  And also placed some of Tim Holtz rub ons in a couple of places.

Here is Bodhi's straw blowing with paint that he did at school last year  :)  I absolutely adore his painting!

Well .. thank you so much for sticking with me through this long post and I hope it made you smile!  :)

The New Year is coming upon us quickly .. and I'll take this time now to with you all a most WONDERFUL 2015!!  Enjoy your festivities and please stay safe!

Thank you again .. and I'd love to hear from you!!!  See you again soon!

Happy New Year!
