A Mother's Day Project...

Hello friends!
 Just got back from a very long vacation.
We were on a family cruise to the Panama Canal..17 days long.. I can honestly say.. I loved the whole trip, but I got very,very homesick.
 I think maybe I'm more of a short vacation type of gal.

What about you?


My favorite place was Cabo San Lucas...


And my favorite person to spend time with on the vacation, was my husband...
Alan and I spend a lot of time together.
We are both creatives and as much as we loved our vacation we were excited to get back home to the studio creating...


After returning home, I quickly jumped back into creating.
Mother's day projects was racing about my mind.

"Heart In Hand" always reminds me of  MOM's...

Thanks for visiting today...
I hope your day is fun and creative :)

Little Peeps, A Sure Sign of Spring!

Hello Friends!

I have a super cute and easy tutorial just for you...




I get just a tiny bit giddy inside with the change of the Seasons.

Spring is one of my favorites, with the fresh smells of rain, new grass, leaves and blossoms and those Little Peeps popping up everywhere..

I designed this Little Peep Easter Basket with a little inspiration from my childhood memories of Easter that are so vivid in my mind..I think I can even smell a chocolate bunny!

This is a super easy Tutuorial and you probably have almost all the supplies on hand. I made several at a time and will be making even more. they are great to give to the little ones filled with Easter candy or this would be darlin' for a Easter Vignette.

I'm so peeping happy you could stop by...

Enjoy your early Spring and Have a Fun time creating Peep Easter Baskets

I'm Partying this week at;

Happy Valentine's Day and Giveaway Winner!


 Hello All !
How was your  LOVE DAY?


Love is...whimsical... magical


and....SWEET!

  we had a nice day here on the MacNaughtan Homestead...
  my lovee worked, my mama stopped to visit and my sweet daughter played cupid all over town.. Paying it      forward to random elderly strangers by giving them a rose ( isn't that so sweet?).. and taking her dad cherry chocolates to work, then she brought her mama a lovely yellow rose.
When the love of my life returned from work, we went to dinner.. we had Chinese..(.yum! ) We took our daughter with us too, and had a great Valentine's Day.

I was a bit under the weather the last couple of days, so my giveaway was kinda delayed..
I used a random generator to pick the winner and for the life of me I couldn't get it to copy onto blogger.
I guess I need some more training on the computer..lol..

I used a random generator  and it picked a number between 1 and 13.
the number it picked was  number 1  Ms. Misantropia 

Congratulations... I will be sending you and email for your addy!

Thank you to all who took the time to visit my blog and read the tutorial. I will be adding more tutorials frequently, so I sure hope to see you.

Wishing you all a very happy Saturday!
