My mom and I tried painting on rocks! I love gardening and my aunt told me about a book by artist Lin Wellford and I wanted to try painting some rocks for my gardens. She does the most amazing paintings on rocks!!! So, this is my first go at painting some pansies on a rock. It's no Lin Wellford but I am hooked, it was so fun!!! And I really love the idea of using my rock art in my gardens! Can't wait to paint some more.
I have been really busy doing a ton of projects for Creative Memories Project Center. If you haven't check it out yet, you should! CM's March projects go live on Sunday, so be sure to check back after Sunday!
There are a bunch of sneak peeks up of CM's new lines coming out! CM has some really exciting things going on, and some really exciting products coming out in the next couple months. I can't spill the news yet, but when I can I will post all about it. Creative Memories has some new features in their Project Center too, the Project Idea of the Day and a Holiday Idea of the Day. Be sure to check back daily for those during the holidays!
I'll be back after Sunday to post all my new projects!!
God Bless !

We had a fun snow day yesterday. If this is a tell tale sign of how this winter is going to go... we might not see spring until June. Last year was the snowyist ( is that a word?) winter on record for WI, and we are already have 15 inches more snow than we did last year at this time! YIKES. But my kids are loving it....and it will be even more fun once the ice rink is in. Hopefully between that and the sledding and snowboarding, it will keep them busy and not driving me crazy! :)
Here's a few pics from yesterday-

Hey everyone, I would love your support for a friend of mine's daughter. (LOL did you get that ?) Anyway, my friend Christine's young daughter made an amazingly beautiful shirt with such an important message and is in a contest. If you feel moved by this please vote for her design and leave her a little comment. http://www.c28.com/canvas/designdetails.aspx?comment=added&id=1041
Her message is this-
About My Design:Waiting for girls is tough, particularly when we're all waiting for Mr. Wonderful to come to sweep us off our feet. It's so easy, for girls of any age, to fall into the trap of the "I've got to have a boyfriend" mentality that we forget that God has someone already prepared for us. So I hope this encourages all girls to remember that true love is worth waiting for, and most importantly to put our focus on God and wait upon Him that He will provide “the one” in His perfect timing. God bless. *C* The verse reads: Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14
Thanks you guys !!!

On a personal note-
I have finally dove in and tried my hand at digital scrapbooking and I have to say, I LOVE it!
Creative Memories software called StoryBook Creator Plus is so fantastic, it takes the confusion out of layering! With this program anyone can go digital! The 100% Princess is a layout I made using all CM papers and elements. The other one is a digital layout I made using a mixture of Jen Wilson Designs and Creative Memories.
I also made a no knit scarf this week! SO fun and it's so easy! I saw the pattern in Martha Stewart's new Holiday crafts edition.
Here's a cozy yet speedy project. Cut 12 pieces of bulky-weight yarn to about 1 1/2 times the desired length of the final scarf. (We used 140-inch pieces to make an 86-inch scarf.) Divide yarn into 4 bunches of 3 strands each. Tie 2 bunches together with a square knot, leaving 6 inches of fringe at end; repeat with remaining bunches. Pin the knots to a piece of foam board. Knot inner 2 bunches of yarn together, spacing knot about 1 inch from existing knots, then knot left and right bunches together. Alternate knotting the inner bunches and the left and right ones, spacing knots evenly apart, until about 6 inches of yarn remain on the end. Finish so that final knots mirror opposite end, and trim to even the ends.
Here is a picture of the one I made, mine is made with 100% wool yarn.
