About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Check this Out!

  My friend, Jamie, is having one fabulous giveaway!  Look at all these gorgeous items that she creates!:

   Stop by her blog and leave a comment!  You may win all the items that are pictured!  Woo Hoo!
   And look below!  I am totally going to make one of these with my girls.  A Gumdrop Wreath!  Love the colors and sneaking a few here and there to nibble on will be fun, too.:)  You need a 10 inch foam wreath, toothpicks (broken in half), gumdrops, masking tape and wire for hanging.  Make sure and wrap masking tape around the top part where you will hang it so the wire hanger won't rip through it.  Detailed directions with pictures are on kiddley.com.

Love the giveaway and how darn cute is that wreath!! I love gumdrops and would probably be eating more than creating ;) Maybe I should make a mini wreath!!

Happy Birthday to your sweet daughter! Hope she had a fabulous Girls Day Out Birthday!

That gumdrop wreath is to die for. And - I am one of five kids. My older sister and I used to love when we would go out and the restaurant didn't have a table for 7 so we got to sit by ourselves and pretend we were there alone. Ahhhh - to be young again. Glad 'Amanda' had a great birthday! Beth

I love the wreath..it is sooooo fun and Christmasy. It reminds me of a story. My friend makes a gumdrop tree each year. She makes it at Thanksgiving and it is just 'for looks' not eating. She keeps it up all month long and then throws it away right after the holidays. One year, during her Christmas party, a man sat there and ate all the stale gumdrops off the tree. His wife was HORRIFED b/c she knew that is was a 'centerpiece.' We all were howling though!

Very VERY fun wreath!

...It reminds me of a little white gumdrop tree we had when I was growing up -- {fun memories}...

My grandmother use to make the gum drop wreath! Some times she would get a large branch and clean it up and make a gum drop tree :0}
