New garden chair

I purchased this adorable bent wicker chair from one of the highschool students who was making (and selling) them to earn money to participate in a CTE competition . . . I got it for a great price and I knew it would go perfectly in my new garden!! I was thrilled to finally pick it up today!


The garden is almost done . . . just a little paint (and a roof) on my greenhouse and some pea gravel and we'll be DONE!  I'll post before and after photos as soon as the last of the work is complete.  It's been a long process . . . we started our complete backyard renovation last summer.  Glad to be able to enjoy it this summer . . . from my new chair!

Thanks for stopping by . . . enjoy your day!

Teacher Thank Yous

The boys and I ventured out today to get some nice flower baskets for their teachers since tomorrow is the last day of school (woohoo!!).  Aren't they adorable?!
thank you teacher
I made the sweet tags the other day (totally scraplifted from MishMash - love her style) and added some fun teacher notepads I found at WalMart a few months ago.
Gift bag for teacher
My oldest son made this cute little list on one of the notepads in his teacher's packet:
to do list
Such fun putting all of this together for their wonderful teachers!  It's been a bit of a trying year for both boys (struggles in math and with independence - perhaps a little 'boundary testing') and I know they are really looking forward to summer vacation - so am I!!

Thanks for stopping by and . . . enjoy your day!

Felt in the shop

I just added some cute felt embellishments to the shop:

Here is a Project Life day I just completed - our Cubscout BBQ out at Salt Creek today . . . I love using the little banner tabs on layouts and cards too.  If you like them, stop by the shop and grab some.

Thanks for stopping by . . . have a great day!

Here's a sample of one of the fun items I have in my shop:

These are great for Project Life and on scrapbook layouts.  Here's a recent Project Life page I made using one my Days of the Week Tags:

I'm working on a fun new embellishment for the shop (and my Project Life) tonight . . . I'll post a picture tomorrow so you can get them while I have them in stock!

Thanks for stopping by . . . have a great night!

New venture

I spend so much time working on my Project Life book these days and I see so much product online, that I've decided to make my own embellishments for my PL book as well as my scrapbook pages.  I thought some of you might enjoy them as well, so I've opened up shop!

Check out my fun stuff here!  Why PaperGarden? Because that name incorporates two of my favorite things (besides my family!) . . . papercrafting and gardening.  Eventually, I'm hoping to expand into fun things for the garden . . . but for now it's all about paper (tags, journaling cards, etc.) and some fun felt embellishments I'm working on.  I'd love for you to stop by and check it out . . . maybe even order a set of fun tags for your projects.

Thanks for stopping by . . . . have a great weekend!
