Pretty Things

Hello Monday! :)
We started out our Monday with swimming and fresh picked grapes. We LOVE grapes. ur summer vacation is coming to a quick end. Boooo. HeeHeeHee No more sleeping in and no more late nights trying to pass the castle level on Mario Bros WII. Laugh** We sure had fun though. And winter break will be anxiously awaited after the first month of school. Ha.
Today I have a little bit of stuff I've worked on lately. Stuff that's now for sale in my Sweet Things Etsy. Just some small projects I found a little bit of time to work on. A good reason to dig into my stash and use some of it up. This little book was actually really fun to make. I used a lot of little bits of goodies. Minis are definitely the best way to use up some scraps and make you feel productive when your done... I finished this in the same amount of time it would take me to complete a layout.
And I'd like to ask why no one has told me how much fun glitter mists are? Laugh** I just purchased a few from the local scrapbook store and also from two peas. Pretty sure I'm in heaven and want to spray everything I touch. They give such a gorgeous glimmer and sparkle. I adore sparkle! If you have any suggestions which sprays to buy please let me know. Suddenly I feel the need to have an overabundance of them. :)
Here's a Party Hat I made a few days ago using Crate Papers Pink Plum collection which I absolutely love. It's my go to lately. And I was in a party hat making mood.
I busted out three of these bad boys in one night. So much fun. I am smitten by these hats. They're so much fun to make and really keep my creative juices flowing, plus I always LOVE the way they turn out. And here's a little secret.... When they're completed I always try them on and go have a peek in the mirror. I know, I'm silly. But hey, I like my hats. HaHaHa
So I wanted to share a blog that inspires me usually on the daily. This blog is very dear to my heart. It's a pick me up every read and she's a wonderful soul. I really wish I could know her personally. She's such an uplifting and inspiring spirit. She is seriously magical. I love her stuff and you will too.

Hope everyone is having a delightful Monday and with that I bid you good night my loves.
Lots of smooches~
