Another Sleepless night...

The night before the 4th of July... I didn't sleep because I was making these...




The next night I couldn't sleep, so I made some of these ...


Then I remembered that my friend's niece was going for a visit to see her new baby girl!

I was so excited to go and buy some cute girlie shoes to send with her! It was my chance to buy some"girlie" things... which I love to do (but rarely get the chance)! And wouldn't you know it... because I was looking, I couldn't really find anything I liked. I hate that!

Since I love shoes, I always bought my niece shoes in our "favorite yellow boxes." I tried to find some cute shoes to send, but this is all I found (and they're way too big, but I had to get something).

Doncha love the box??? Me too... or I definitely wouldn't have bought them.

Since the whole "shoe shopping" for a girl was such a let down, I thought of something else!

Besides shoes, I love to scrapbook. What's great for me is that my mom owns a huge store and I so I have quite a collection of BOY materials. What I don't have... is girlie stuff.

So... I went on down to see my sister at the store... and got all the stuff to make this:

I love it! It's turning out SO cute, and I'm loving all the little pull outs, and bows ...

It's not done... and I'm supposed to be dropping it off soon!

I'm a totally zombie from no sleep... but I work best under pressure and this was a SUPER fun project.

This totally got me in the mood to scrap... so as soon as I catch up on the last 3 days of sleep that I've missed... I'm going to bust out all my stuff and get on it!

That scrapbook made me cry! It is INCREDIBLE - a piece of art. I LOVE IT! Thank you beyond mere words for this absolute treasure. Each page is a delight in and of itself and the fact that you used our own photos blew me away! And you included our doggies and M, T and D. Totally awesome my dear friend!!

(Seriously people, the photo does not even come close to doing it justice!!)

The shoes are awfully cute as well and having them be 'big' means I just get to anticipate how sweet they will look on her feet.

Thanks for taking a look at my blog and leaving such kind comments. Your boys are all very handsome. I just love the opportunity to buy girly stuff too! Your projects are all great. I love the cushions:)
Have you stopped at the four boys?! I get fed up being asked that question!
If you don't mind, i would love to come back and read all about your family's antics!
Love,
