Where the heck did it go...

I don't know about you guys, but this week has just flown by.
I Still haven't been in my craft room as much as I would like.
Remember at the beginning of the week I said I was going
to get out in the yard and get some trimming done
That didn't happen either..  In fact I don't know what in the heck
I even got done this week.

Oh Yea.. I remember...  Most of my time I was playing and kissing
and hugging on this sweet little fella..

Oh he just melts my heart...

So I am going to share with you some tiny little canvases
I have been playing around with..
I really am having a blast making these..

This one I made awhile ago and sent it out to a sweet blog friend..

This next little canvas I just finished last night..

Those words are rub-ons..  You make them yourself on the computer
My BFF (Becca) had given me a couple sheet to play with
So much fun making you own rub-ons.. 

I have one more thing to share with you!!

Catherine from Corner of Cat's Mind sent me some
Happy mail..  YEA!!!
If you have never been to her blog you should really treat yourself and
stop by.  Her photos are amazing and I always leave with a big smile
on my face...

All the way from Canada..

So much crafty stuff to play with.. 

And all kinds of yummy papers.. 

And a this Beautiful Charm to hang in a window.. 

And here is the beautiful card she made me...

And she also got my kitties some yummy treats.
The Kitties and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thanks so much Catherine.. I just love everything.. 

That all I have for now my friends
 Thank you so much for stopping by..

I do hope you have a happy weekend.

Till next time!!!

I´d say you have been very busy and even got some goodies in the mail too ...have a great weekend!

Terry said...

Poor little guy has to take the blame for G-Ma's lack of ambition to work in the yard! Can you send him over here, so I can have an excuse? Lovely creations as always and what a fun mail package for kitties and you! Enjoy your weekend!

Linda Breedlove said...

Love your mini canvases... and would love to try the rub-ons. What do you print them on?
I'll tell you... this week has absolutely flown by and I, too, didn't get done half of what needed accomplished. But all our kids visited this week, we saw all the grandchildren and one spent the night... now that's what's important. Right?
Great happy mail... have fun creating!
Have a wonderful weekend, Linda! Hugs!

Netty said...

There is definitely not enough hours in the day Linda.........
Terrific canvases, love them both. Great gifts, you will have loads of fun with these.
Just cannot believe how much Myles has grown, how handsome he is and totally beautiful my friend. Sending you hugs for the weekend, Annette x

Certainly can see why you are distracted. Such a cutie!
And that Catherine! Isn't she great!

JeanFB said...

OMG, he is so adorable! I don't blame you one bit for spending all of your time with a "younger man"! Seize these days, they don't last long. Your canvases are divine - I adore them, and I know how very special they are. ;) I know what you mean about returning from vacation and just not getting going too much craft-wise... same thing happened to me. It will all calm down and get back to normal soon, and that will be just fine. :) Have fun playing with all your new gifties!

Heather Jensen said...

OMGoodness...he is getting so big. Where has time gone! He is a doll I tell ya. :)

I just love these little canvases you are doing. Can't you get those blank canvases at Michale's pretty cheap? I just might have to have a go at one. :)

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Ohhhhh he is a CUTIE! I loveeeeeee your canvasses!! that butterfly is AWESOME!! And WOW WOW WOW!! I loveeeeeeee your happy mail! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Sylvia said...

Myles is special, I remember when my first son was that age and again when my grandson was that age. There is just something special about little boys! I love your canvases. There are happy like you. and your happy mail is so sweet. Your challenge last week was fun, too. I just did not have enough time to play more than once. I love all the challenges, time is just not always available! Have a wonderful weekend.

Nancy C said...

Playtime with a cute baby trumps crafting any day. :)

What a sweet package you received from Catherine. You two are so talented!

June Houck said...

What a sweet boy. I wish I could smell him...I love baby scent. I think your time was well spent snuggling this little guy.

Your canvas art is amazing, as usual.

Your cat pictured above reminds me of my Bootsie; the cat I had when I was much younger ;)

Catherine said...

Oh those cheeks! So kissable!

I'm glad your gifts arrived safe and sound Linda and I look forward to you making something crafty and beautiful out of them! Hope kitties enjoyed the treats!

Happy weekend to you friend!
xo Catherine

Linda Brun said...

Linda my friend, I can fully understand that little prince charming is taking most of your time... But looks like you have been playing with mix media and I love those two canvases . And make your own rub-ons sounds like a fantastic idea. Have to look on the internet for those sheets, cause I want to create sentiments in norwegian.
Happy mail is always great fun .

Big hugs!

Becca said...

Oh your canvases are so pretty! I love the butterfly! Looks like you got a lot of fun stuff from Catherine! And how sweet of Banjo to send something to your kitties!

Audrey Pettit said...

I so know what you mean about the time just flying by! Man, I wish I could hit the pause button.:) Myles is such a little cutie! I don't blame you for spending your days with him. Don't think there's anything better in this world. LOVE your canvases. You are so amazing at those. Such fun mixes of stuff on them. How cool that you made your own rub-ons even. Enjoy all your new goodies. Looks like you really made out there.

Love the little canvases. What paper do you use for the rub-ons in your printer? I would love to make some.

Your canvasses are just beautiful! I'd love to know how you printed the rub-on letters and where to get the materials for those! And what sweet gifts from your friend!
