Jingle all the way!

Well, I've finally made something. This was my swap card that I made for Stamp Club last night. I've just been so busy this is the only thing I've been able to make. :( I sure do miss stamping! Does it look familiar? I cased it from Jeanie's card that she made last month when we got together for our monthly crop. I love paper, so I like how the paper makes this really simple card POP!

How cute is my little man?

So, I didn't get anything done that I'd hoped to this weekend. I didn't make my swap cards for Thursday, I didn't make Will's birthday thank you's (so I didn't get to write them out either), I didn't make it out to the Maple Leaf Festival either.... :( Instead of going to Baldwin, I opted to go the Pumpkin Patch instead. We didn't have the best of luck with our photo shoot of Will on KU's campus yesterday so I decided to try my luck at the patch today. It turned out really well! I think that we actually have a few pics to choose from! Now I just need to pick some, edit and PRINT!

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is a 58-year Halloween tradition beloved by generations across America. This year, Will is Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF Online and we’d like for you to join us!

In 1950, a group of young Philadelphia trick or-treaters, along with their pastor, began the tradition of knocking on doors and collecting funds for UNICEF on Halloween. Since then Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has empowered generations to save kids lives in their global community through education and fundraising during the Halloween season.

Last year, kids with their families, schools and communities raised more than $4.5 million dollars and over $140 million dollars to date. I hope you will help Will make this year a huge success too.

Here are some examples of how a little can go a long way:

* $5 can provide a box of 100 disposable syringes for use during immunization campaigns.

* $15 can buy one carton of high energy protein biscuits to support and rehabilitate 3 severely malnourished kids for 1 month.

* $44 can provide school supplies to 20 kids

Below, you will find a link to
Will’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraising webpage. It takes seconds to make a donation, and you can give any amount, a little or a lot. Since it's so easy to make an impact, I hope you'll support Will in this important cause. Because every kid counts!

Thank you for any support you may give!

Where have I been?

Important Notice:



Sincerely, The Government

Yes, I have been missing from the blogosphere...I've been getting ready for Mr. Will's 2nd birthday party! He turned 2 last week and we had 2 parties this weekend, one at home, and one in Oklahoma at my grandma's house. (And, now I'm broke!) It has been a LONG weekend. But, now I need to make thank you cards, so perhaps I'll get something posted soon, at least a picture of my cute little guy! I hope to get back in the swing of things soon!

Happy Birthday!

Is your birthday your favorite day of the year? Well, come January 10 it won't be my favorite anymore either...but do you love free stuff? I do, I do! Check out Freebies 4 Mom for birthday freebies from various restaurants and stores.

Will's birthday is next week, and so far, I've gotten a free Wacky Pack from Sonic and a free kids meal from Famous Dave's for him. I also just signed myself up at First Watch and already received a free entree! Sign up for Minsky's Pizza (KC Metro pizza chain) and you can get a free small pizza on your birthday! We've got a coupon from Jeff's birthday last month. Speaking of which, it expires soon, we need to use it!

Yes, I know, this isn't stamping related at all, but free food and goodies free up money to buy MORE stamping supplies! Hurray for freebies! Do you know of any other freebies that aren't on the Freebies 4 Mom list, leave me a comment. I love freebies!
