FWF: THIS much

Happy Friday!
I realized this week that Mother's day is rapidly approaching. Yikes!
My parents have been ummm.... Helping.... my grandma sort through piles and piles of paper and they said that she had kept a lot of the cards we have sent her over the years. It's time to restock Grandma's stash!

Recieved this lovely stamp in the mail this week. In record time, I might add. Brought out the markers and the newest episode of Glee and had myself a fine old time.

Posting this on the run- work calls. Have a super holiday full of inspiration for all those moms out there!

MIM: Rock Star

My daughter is a dancer and this year whe was invited to join the competitive dance team at the studio (named Rising Star)

The best thing about this studio and dance company is that it is the complete opposite of Dance Moms. The teachers are all about encouraging and supporting everyone. There is a Big/Little Sister/Brother program where the older company members mentor the younger. My daughter's big sister is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met and I am so thankful she and my daughter were paired together.

This week's Make-It Monday was to use Perfect Pearls. I bought some a long time ago on a whim and haven't actually ever bothered to use it. Craft hoarding, I tell you. I saw this sentiment and immediately thought of the dance big sis. The Star is from a freebie Stampin' Up, and the wire thingamabob was from my hoard, but the rest is PTI.

FWF: a Miracle...

For the last week, I've been trying to arrange a surprise baby shower for my daughter's third grade teacher. The other parents have been great about helping me find phone numbers and bring party stuff, but if all 18 8- and 9-year olds keep quiet about this until this afternoon, it will be a miracle.

I thought that since I made a baby card for a Friday, I might as well link it up to Unity's Friends with Flair!

The kit is Moonbeams and Heartstrings. It's one of the first I ever bought and still one of my favorites. This was pretty easy to throw together. I should keep that in mind since there don't seem to be enough hours in the day!
It's the start of Spring Break for us... Happy weekend and week off!
