In Need of TRIPOD... HELP!

Good morning all.. Hope you are having a great weekend. If you live in southern California it's raining today It's a good day to have a movie marathon and some comfort food This morning I was looking through all of my pictures that I have taken. I noticed something ..... What is it??? I am rarely in any of all of my millions and millions of pictures... ( Okay not millions but thousands.)

 I am nowhere to be found. I am going to make it a point to get my self a tripod ... But somewhat in lost just because there are so many some are majorly expensive and some are just plain cheap ... I had purchased one at my local Target store when I had first purchased my camera took it out the box, set it up but no way was I trusting my camera on that thing.. The tripod was so flimsy I was scared it would just tip over and break my camera. So I returned it. I haven't purchased another.. Hoping you can give me tips on where or what kind I should buy.. I would greatly appreciate the help.

Pregnant Woman for Invitations....

Hello and Happy Thursday!! The weekend is almost here.. =) Yay!!! Today I was very happy to get a message from one of my friends who asked if I can help her with the blackout pregnant mommy from the "New Arrival" cart.
She is making some really cute baby shower invitations and I had told her that I had just gotten this cart and that I would be more than  happy to help her in any way to get her invites ready. So here are the cut outs I'm making for her.. I can't wait to see her finished product.. I will ask if she'd take a picture of the finish product so that I can share with you all.

These are cut at 4inches tall..

I really like this black out...

Bring A Smile to His Face!!!

For Aidan!!!

A Baby in Need of Smiles - Please Help Little Aidan
Tanya from Scrappin KY Momma needs help from all of us crafters. She knows this little boy and his family and would like to send him cards. Here's his story...

Aidan is a sweet lil 2 year old who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper. His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God and their support system have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So....

Let's get our crafting supplies out and send this lil guy some LOVE!!! Pass this on to all your crafty friends. I think we can all take a couple minutes and make something special for him that will bring LOTS of smiles and he can look at over and over. We all know how laughing and smiling can be good for the soul. Let's give him this much for him to enjoy while he's battling this horrible disease. I have no doubt in my mind that God can perform a miracle in this beautiful child. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.Lets all come together and put Lots of BIG Smiles on Aidan's and his parents faces.

You can mail your cards to:
