Picture Collages...

I think one of the best things to give as gifts are pictures.  I love pictures, I love to be surrounded by them at home & work.  I love pictures.  So, I'm forcing my love of them upon others & make collages as Christmas gifts.

Back some time ago, Jill asked me not to post pictures of K, C & D so you've been seeing this in the place of them:

All three of those kids are beautiful & I'd love to share pictures of them but I have to respect Jill's wishes as they ARE her children.  :)  But I made her a collage of each kid through the year & then one that has my two favorite pics of each one for Jill, Greg, Chelsie & myself.

Here are the others I made:

This is CE.  My friend, Courtney's lil guy.  He's such a lil cheeseball.  :)

This is my cousin, Z.  He is quite the lil guy & you can see just a twinkle of naughty behind those cute eyes.

I started off doing collages of Trouble & Sunshine for Paul three years ago & just kept going with it.  Here is how they've changed through the years:












  1. Love these collages! I use SnapFish and make photobooks for each year of Lyla and then make them as gifts for family members as well. Pictures ARE the best gift because people so often forget to take pics, print them, or save them.

    1. SnapFish...hmmm, I may have to check that out. I tend to use Walgreens. I like the idea of photo books. I actually made one from my wedding but cannot afford to order it yet. Ugh. :|

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
