 just wanted to share what I got today. So excited, my mom ask me what I wanted for my birthday, well this is it. I got it. It is going to be a blast I have already started making stickers for these desk in my home school. I wanted to show you my homeschool room it use to be a garage and I have redone everything myself over the years it has been many things. So here are pictures below just to share.
 the room is pretty big so I couldnt get everything in one shot. so thats why theres more than one. I homeschool my granddaughter who is 6 and my sons step daughter which is 9 and watch my granddaughter which is two soon to be three. keeps me busy and happy. ha
 this is my corner of the world where I set up lessons and test and craft if we want to make somethings for art.
 computer station in back along with a play area for the little one.  down below is our desk and yes I had to add some antique decor in the class room in background I have old wagon holds toys  old door and a old fire place mantel holds pictures and holiday  decor.

dt inspiration for decorate to celebrate challenge (suprize party)

 welcome to another challenge with us at so glad you have stopped by. Make sure you go to the challenge blog and check out all the other talented dt. members creations. Today the challenge is a suprise party, and since I know amy's birthday is coming up I made this bloggers address book, so she could write down all the addresses she gets for easy mailing out prizes to our winners, and plus I know she loves giraffees.
this is the inside and the giraffe heads have the alphabet letters a-z  I started off with a hard covered book covered in giraffe print paper. It should come in handy for mailing. happy early birthday amy.

bubble guppies a mini album for my granddaughters 3rd bday

 I like to make my granddaughters mini albums for each birthday theme. My little one is turning 3 so she loves bubble guppies they are on the nick channel. I used the mini album cartriage for the pages and this cart is great for the pockets it has for the mini album. I drew all the bubble guppies on cardstock and colored and cut out. the front of the mini is oona she wobbles and so do the fish. because they like to dance alot. I dont know if you can see it but it what time is it? and at the bottom it says party time. and she is holding a 3.
 here are a few pages of the rest of the bubble guppies I had drew and cut and colored each one

I have a little more to finish up but I just wanted to share it.  the names hold the pictures. hope everyone is safe from the storm. hugs
