It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Springtime

Warmer weather, March winds, aahh springtime in New Mexico....it's finally here! But probably not to stay. We usually have at least one freak winter storm in March or April.
My joy for spring became all the more greater when I received this awesome package from Mary Ann. I'm participating in a year long seasonal swap with Mary Ann, Vallen and Mrs. G. Mary Ann sent me a box full of spring goodness. I swear her boxes are like Mary Poppins carpet bag - never ending and full of all sorts of fun stuff!

Stickers, paper, cards, crafty goodness, jewelry, Japanese cuties, goodies for Miss S, scrapbooking goodies and so much more...and these beautiful pillowcases. I think I'm going to put them on Miss S's bed - they would match the quilt I made her beautifully.
And this gorgeous birdie cone. I love it. It's hanging in the window in the front room. Thank you so much Mary Ann! Tell Miss C to start staking the mailman - Miss S mailed her Easter package today:)
And finally some craftiness from me! I'm participating in Mary Ann's Itty Bitty Robin Egg Blue Book Swap and these are the pages I made for it - 31 in all! They are atc size - just a little wider since Mary Ann is going to bind them all into little books for us. And lucky for you - I made 5 extras to give away! Just leave me a comment if you would like one and the first five interested will get one!


Miss S and I went and saw Enchanted today. We both really liked it. Do you have dollar theaters in your town? We have two and one is really close to the house. It shows movies about 2 or so months after they run in the regular theater and it's only $1.00 to get in. $.50 on Mondays even! We'll probably go see Alvin and the Chipmunks next. I think Enchanted comes out on DVD on Tuesday and I might get it for Miss S's Easter basket. I don't like to do a lot of candy in our Easter baskets and I usually get Miss S and Hubby a couple little gifts instead. I'm going to try to make some of Wee Wonderful's Wee Bunny's this week - we'll see how that turns out:)

I LOVED Enchanted and so did Rick. Whoops did I say that outloud in blogland? I'm a sucker for good Disney movies.

I'd love one of your atc give aways!!!

I love the little book pages. Haven't left you a comment lately- I've been drive by surfing a lot - it's our busy season at work.

Have a great day.
