Sunshiny Day!

Today is a good day.  I woke up at 4:30am.  We have the car loaded.  Bike rack with two bicycles, golf clubs, beach towels....a week's worth of clothes and yes...SUNSCREEN.  Heading to Destin Florida to meet my youngest sister and her family for a few days of fun in the sun.   







All this will be followed up by a quick trip to Mississippi to see my mom and other two siblings.  My *middle sister* and her family, my *baby brother* and his family which happens to include a brand spankin' new baby boy that I can't wait to squeeze up for a bit.  












If you're fortunate enough to live close to family thank your lucky stars.  


Oh yes, there will be photos.   { Are you cracking up at my maps?  }


Til next time....

50 Blows!


 So, I decided to actually start making some of the projects that I've *pinned* on 

Follow Me on Pinterest




This silly gift is for a friend who's birthday is this week.  




I created a black Over the Hill gift box using my Cricut Plantin Cartridge.  
It holds 50 gum balls and makes a fun gift for your Over the Hill recipient.  
Hope it makes you smile, Tammi!  Happy Birthday Sweet T!





I found my inspiration on Pinterest.  






Which led me to  Poca Cosa Blog 




Have a splendid day!

Got Buttons?




Got Buttons?  Don't we all!  I *re-discovered* a stamp set that I purchased a while back from PTI and thought...why not?  I needed to do something fun and not my "usual" so I dragged it out and am pretty pleased with the way these cards turned out.  I think I need to do more *re-discovering* and less shopping.
Wait, that's not going to happen, but it's always fun to dig out something "old" and make it new.




They measure approx 3.75" X 3.75" 
The PTI stamp set is called:  Everyday Button Bits
Ink is Chocolate Chip from SU!

Feel free to email me for more information or to place an order. 

Thanks for letting me take a minute of your day!

Happy Spring!

Some Bunny Loves You ~ Now and Then

Some Bunny Loves You...






Now....






Some Bunny Loves You! stands right out on these sweet little tags. They are for some candy treasures that I made for a few events coming up this month.  The saying is far from original.  I remember it when I was little and remember saying it to my kiddos around this time of year too.  Corny, I know....but what can I tell ya?  I'd give credit to the originator of it, but...I have no clue who that might be.  Type it in on google, ESTY, Pinterest and you'll find it EVERYWHERE!  



But....as I was thinking of this saying it reminded me of a bunny cake that I attempted a LONG time ago.  Lucky for me my kids were little and had no idea how...shall I say...NOT great it turned out.  Those little bunnies loved me and thought that it was the BEST cake they ever had!  Who knew that over 10 years would pass and I'd recall making this cake and sit here remembering those days when my kiddos were small.  Seems like yesterday and a million years ago.


then.....






The Donna K Bunny Cake!
Forgive my photo taking skills, friends.  



The three little people who brighten my world back then...and still do.  
Who wouldn't want Darth Vader in their basket...I'm mean really?!

That's it for my post today.  I'm terrible about posting on a regular basis.  I think I struggle so much with my writing skills.  I'm not the most creative, inventive writer and my grammar is the pits, but...sometimes it's just fun to vent and to share.  I hope you're having a great day and remember...
Some Bunny Loves You too!!

Enjoy your day!
