oooh. yummy fall!

It seems like we don't get much of the season changes here in Florida, but this week has been divine! Seriously, we've had blue skies much of the week and a lovely cool snap... highs in the low to mid 70s today!!!!

So, I just had to point you over to the Scribble Scrabble blog where the talented Jaime from our design team (not to mention, recent memory makers master winner) shared a gooorgeous page using the new SweetnSour collection!

Not much else for now.. I have some scrappy news that I can't share yet... working on a few things, but nothing too exciting... hope you're having a great week!

Some Sweet stuff and a funny mommy story

ya. You know you're a mom when.....

So, this morning was one of those that just flew by... before I knew it, we needed to be out the door going to take Alexander to his preK, then Audrey and I needed to leave from there to a Bible study at church.... out the door we go to all of the above. After the Bible study I get up and look down at my shirt... a white shirt from Target.... and ... IT'S INSIDE OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wore my shirt inside out the entire morning! and no one said anything till after I said something! aaak! what a goofy thing to do! That's definately a first for me! I have walked around with stickers on my rear-end from the kids putting them on there without me noticing till someone points it out to me! Oh, the joys of motherhood! hee!

Ok, so a couple-a-cards!

I opened an etsy store!

Well, I finally did it. After much pondering, wondering, trying to decide... I opened my etsy store... .
Yes. as of tonight I am now a seller on etsy... What's etsy, you ask... It's a place especially designed for people to buy and sell handmade items! There's some super cute stuff there, so beware of it's addictive powers....

So, if you're so inclined, check out my little place! Charity's Etsy Shop. Most of the things listed there have been published. Wish me luck!, Charity

beautiful a

it's honestly been a looong week. Alexander's starting to adjust to school, but we had a few small bumps along the road and I'm sure there are still some adjustments to be made. He is such a sweet kid and it's been a lot to suddenly begin school in the mornings after 4 years of staying home with mom for the most part.

This week it was all about the letter A at his school....
today he gets to share his bag of A stuff... about 3 things that begin with A...

so, he took, an almond.
an arrow (big red chipboard one i had)
and an alien...

fun! also, each kid took an apple to school with them and they're having a apple tasting.. complete with caramel dip, fluffy marshmallow dip to try! sound like a good time!~
Right now Audrey is on the floor of the living room with a blanket on the floor. She is having a little picnic for Mickey, Pooh and Piglet. Looks lke they're having tea, juice, grapes and imaginary cookies~! too sweet.

The kids and I have been reading thru the little children's daily Bible Meme gave us... today was about the walls of Jericho falling and how God saved Rahab and her family because she trusted in God. Good stuff~

AND it's gorgeous outside today! highs of 81-82 degrees today! woohoo!

I do have one layout to share with you... I've honestly been pretty focused on the kids, new school, etc. So, I finally got a layout finished last night...

Beautiful A
I made the a with my Cricut. CI kraft paper, Scenic Route Sonoma papers and chipboard, Making Memories ribbon, Kaiser Krafts hot pink pearls. tfl!
