Tuesday Treasures- Boy oh Boy

I was having some issues with my iMac yesterday and even though I wanted to throw it out the window, I have to say, I tried using my husbands hp laptop and it is horrible! I thought about going a cheaper route and wishing for ANY laptop for Christmas but I dont think I will ever be a pc user again. Back to dreaming about a macbook air.

Anyway... Here is this weeks Tuesday Treasures
I am in-love with the little boy hats, ties and t-shirts, plus I have baby on the brain.
Here is some cuteness for boys
(its been one of those days- somehow I missed a box) :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspiration Workshop: Favorite Color

It is week 13 of Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop. This weeks prompt is FAVORITE COLOR.
Now, my favorite color changes with the seasons, but there is one color that remains throughout.
BLUE, but not just any blue..

The bright blue color of my little boys eyes
I feel such love when I look into his face. 

Those bright blue eyes- make me think of....
The magnificent ocean waves

A relaxing seaside

It is such a calming color to me. 
A reminder of our wedding day 8.8.08 

And fun times we spent as a family June 2011
BLUE- holds meaning for me

Of course, being the girl that I am I do love other colors too. Such as Bright/Hot Pink 
It is very much a favorite of mine. Such a statement it can make!



What are your favorite colors?

Thanks for stopping by!

Hoo Are You- Some fun silly questions


I am joining Night Owl Crafting for Hoo Are You in hopes to get to know each other a little better! 
NightOwlCrafting
These questions all relate to school!

Here are this week's questions!
1. Do you prefer to use a regular pencil or mechanical pencil? Mechanical Pencil- I write much neater with it.  Bic are my favorite :)

2. What is your favorite color in the crayon box? Cerulean

3. Bottled glue or glue stick? I would want to use both :) bottle for larger things and stick for smaller. I am actually a weird one who does like to pick the glue off her fingers :) 

4. calculator or do it in your head?
Calculator! I loved my graphing calculator in high school. I can't say I would know how to use it now though :)


5. Favorite subject while in High School? funny, I liked math (even if I need a calculator) 

Now it is your turn to play along!!!!


Copy and paste these questions to your post and let me know so I can learn about YOU!

Wine Cork Trivet Kit

Instead of my usual tuesday treasure I wanted to show you something I worked on yesterday.
How awesome is this?! 
Joe's aunt Rose got me a wine cork trivet kit and I was so excited about it I couldn't wait to do it! It was a bit tricky at first but I got it!

First things first- I dumped out all my corks to see which one's to use. (real cork)
I had marked a few from special occasions and wanted to make sure and use those
(and have been saving my corks for years now)

Here is what she got for me 

So I arranged the corks how I wanted them- there are so many ways you could do it, after trying a few, I went the easy way....

2 vertical, 2 horizontal
If you can tell at all, it wasn't tight enough so I got out a knife and cut some corks into smaller pieces as fillers. They send you a sheet of sand paper to get out the rough edges. 

 The instructions suggest you use a hot glue gun, and so thats what I did.
 
Once I had my layout how I wanted it and everything fit just right, I lifted up 1 cork at a time and hot glued it down. 

I LOVE IT! It comes with a wall mount too so you can hang it up and then use it when needed.

Thanks Ro-Ro!!!!
