I am giving away a prize. To read about it click http://www.chrissandlou.blogspot.com/2014/06/prize-giveaway.html

Hello My Friends & Welcome Visitors!

Today is one of my favorite days of the week!  It is Decorate to Celebrate day!  The challenge this time is Grandparents Day (or a birthday party just make sure it is a decoration).  As most of you know; I was recently at a CK Scrapbook Convention and I picked up this cute canvas wall hanging kit from Quick Quotes.  I thought it would be perfect for grandparents day.



 The middle canvas has a place for a picture of the grandparents & grandchildren and then a smaller "charm" picture.  So cute!

I am entering this Canvas Wall Art into the following challenges:

Hugs,

Get Well Card

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Today I would like to show you a card I made for a family member who hasn't been feeling well for quite some time.  I think getting a get well card when you are low is just a wonderful thing, don't you?  We often here someone is sick or struggling with an on-going illness and we forget how lonely that can be.  Just a little note to say "I'm thinking of you" can mean a lot.  So here is the card.


And here is the envelope.



I bought several of these envelope stamps when I was at the CK Scrapbook Convention.  This is the beach one.  I live at the beach and so does my family member and I also got one for a cottage and a Christmas one.  They are from Stamplistic.

I am entering this card or envelope into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate all of your comments!

A Prize for You and My Re-Decorated Office!

Hello My Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Well it is finally here!  I am going to show you my new office!  



Warning this will be picture heavy.  I decided on the paint color when I saw this paint on my daughters walls in her bedroom, I just love green.  For my birthday; my daughter & son-in-law are going to come and install an overhead light so I can get rid of the lamps.



It is a small room but cozy.



These are the owls over my desk



These are the owls over my workstation.



I have shelves with just a few owls on them but I'm not worried, I know my friends and family will give me owls for my birthday in September.  The little plaque says "Home is Where your Mom is" isn't that true?  I hope my children know that no matter where they wander in this big old world they can always come home to their mommy and I will always be here for them.



My desk with the beautiful calendar Shirl made me.



The desk organizer I made.  This calender holder you see above was dark blue, I painted it pink and put owl tape across it.



I even have owl closet doorknobs on my new closet doors! 

Okay, here is the funnest thing.  I had to put this funny owl sticker on my thermostat because my husband & I both agree it looks like our daughter Kelly.  Sorry Kelly, if you look at this you will see that you make a face just like this!



Every time I look at this little sticker it reminds me of my girl and that makes me smile!

So that is my new Owl office.  Every room in my house is decorated in a theme....I have my Hello Kitty Craft Room, my nautical rooms, my wine rooms, to me it is just easier to decorate when I have a theme.

Now what am I forgettting....oh yes!  I have to choose a prize winner!  The winner is SHarti!  SHarti, please send me your address~ america57@comcast.net

Thank you all for stopping by; hope this wasn't too boring!

Hugs,
