mounds of mail*joy

what a WONDERFUL day. the weather is truly perfect. It's 70 degrees with a cool breeze and SUNNY! omg I'm loving the weather as long as it stays beautiful out. it makes me yearn for summertime. only 2 more weeks! then I can ride my bike to the library, go walking with my dog, mow lawns, repaint my bedroom and all the other things I love so much about summer. :] 2 more weeks...

This weekend was Operation Prom Makeover for ian's sister, Riley. I love that girl seriously. She was GORGEOUS. Renee (ian's mom) asked me to make her jewelry, do her hair, and take photos which i LOVED doing. I ended up making a hairpiece for her too. here's a select few shots from the event:

She was a gorgeous mermaid inspired princess. love it.

Also, this weekend was KNITTING TIME! I finally finished-count em- 3 BOWS! here's a pic of 2 of them that i attached to knitted headbands i made!

I have plans to make many more and put them up in my shop. I think I'm off to get more yarn tonight! Hobby Lobby's yarns are on sale right now and they have lots of choices. I want mango, grey, and magenta. <3

Today in the mail i got CRAZY amounts of happiness. I got my package from Paper crafts regarding the RAK i won. o.m.g. i never expected to get this much stuff seriously. The photo i showed in the last post is a photo of all six winners' prizes together but they SPOILED US. seriously I about died. lol

I got the K & Company cut 'n paste collection and its all so beautiful and vintage and fabulous. it is seriously the best one for me. i love it all! Included are rub ons, stickers, die cuts, brads, 3D embellishments and TONS of paper! Thank you Paper crafts!!!

Also, this little lady was kind enough to send me THIS STUFF from her Mom's scrapbook store and I was excited to receive that package today too!

She got me the American Crafts Backyard Collection, 4 packs of thickers, a uniball signo in white, and some Stickles in a shade called "Mermaid!" How perfect is THAT? Thanks darling dearest!

Alrighty, now time to announce the winner of my little RAK! I had one name that really really stuck out to me! *drumroll please* My new blog name is..........

Swimming with Mermaids!

Therefore, the winner of the ACEO is Blogger McMGrad89!!! Please email me your address and what you would like your card theme to be at keread [at] ! thank you all for playing!

All in all this past weekend was brilliant and the coming week is looking promising! I hope everyone is happy and inspired! <3
