Birthday Paper Doily Tag

Today is a very special day... it's Mr. Woodsy's birthday! We typically don't exchange BIG birthday gifts and sometimes we don't exchange any gifts at all. This year I decided to splurge and get Mr. Woodsy a GoPro camera. He has been eyeing that camera for years, and well I finally made his dreams come true. I wanted to give him the camera before our cruise (last week). It just so happened that the camera and accessories arrived at our mailbox last Monday, and I was off work.

DIY Monogram Stickers For Cards

The other night I received our Christmas cards from I knew I was going to be in a mad-dash to get these babies, sealed, stamped, and out to the mailbox. My goal was to get them complete in one evening. I have a super large family on both sides. Most years we send on average 75-100 cards. That's a lot of stuffing and stamping if you ask me. And in past years (because I was crazy) I would write a message in each card and sign. Not this year--I went with the double-sided "pre-signed" … [Read more...]
