Found in the Hallmark Store

While Amanda and I were shopping at the mall, we stopped in the Hallmark store. We laughed over the wood signs they had. Here are two of them



I can definitely relate to both of these.

A fun mother daughter day

I had asked Amanda if she wanted to go out for a little shopping with me. We went to Erie, Pa. She said she didn't have any money but she could watch me spend money. 
As much fun as it is to buy myself things, it was equally fun to treat her to things she liked. 
First we went to the mall. It looks pretty dead in this picture but there really were people walking around. Plus it was a bit on the early side.


We found deals at both Boscovs and Bath and Body works.


We also went to Hobby Lobby twice. The first time was to shop and the second time was to find my phone. Somehow it had fallen into the bottom of the cart and I didn't notice. When we went back Amanda was on the phone trying to see if anyone in the store found it and I ran in to look. First I looked in the carts and that's exactly where it was. I got back to the car and Amanda was still on the phone with a store employee.

Lunch was at Cracker Barrel and it was yummy.

I had already started eating when Amanda reminded me to take a picture of my food.

An egg-straordinary craft project

Most things I make with my Cricut I use free cut files that I find at various places. I'm just cheap like that. Once in a great while I find something I like well enough to spend money to purchase the cut file. I had seen a lot of these egg lanterns in my Facebook groups and really liked them. The files I purchased included 3 different patterns. So far I've only made one. The files came from an Etsy shop called GOMArtcraft. 
This is an Easter lantern. It's along the same lines as the ornament I made the other day. Again there is no gluing other than the paper behind the individual panels. The rest of the pieces just all slide together.


I put fairy lights inside this before putting the last panel in place. It's much more impressive with the lights on.

Feeling whiney

 This time of year gets a bit depressing. I'm ready for spring and warm weather and winter keeps teasing us. The other day it was almost 60, today it was 40 and by Saturday it's supposed to be down to 20 and snowing. On the up side of that by Monday they're calling for temps back up to 60. The up and down makes me crazy. 

To balance out my crying about the weather I'll give you cute Gibbs pictures.



I wasn't sure if he would like this bed when I bought it for him. It sits on one end of the couch and he frequently curls up in it
