Ormolu feature today!!!

I have a page featured over at Ormolu's blog today!!!
It's a great time for happy email as our little family is struggling with the January cabin fever doldrums. It's too cold to go outside and we made a promise to avoid all shops other than the supermarket. We're spending a lot of time at Trader Joe's...
I can't even scrap because Lola is so crazed with unspent energy she insists on climbing everything. Anything too small to climb becomes a trampoline. It's a dangerous time of year.
But I digress.
Here is the page:
This is one of my favorite projects! It was made for the True Xoxo Girls challenge blog. The border on the MMBI paper is so great! And HOW can you go wrong with those Ormolu kraft "Go Negative" die-cut tags? Throw in some vintage Sassy bits and you are good to go! I laugh when I see my bushy eyebrows in the BADLY PRINTED photo- perhaps it's time to get them waxed?

Please swing by the Ormolu blog and leave some love?
I was so CHEESED when I got the email! I love this brand! Swing by their shop and check it out.

We had our first snow last Saturday- it was perfect!
Just enough to stick on saturday and melt away completely on Monday- gotta LOVE that! 
MuChoS SmOoChEs!


  1. Congratulations Michelle! I hadn't even heard of Ormulu, but I must say I now have an obsession! I checked out their shop, and love the buttons and the fabric tags. Definitely on my wish list!

    Beautiful layout, and such a pretty pic of you too. Sorry to hear about the cabin fever with a toddler in the house. At Lola's age, kids are like caged animals...so curious and ready for an adventure, every minute of every day. :)

  2. Fun page! I love the pop of red!

    I received the Liebster Award from a friend, and one of the rules of winning is that I give the award to 5 other crafters that I think are totally awesome. I'd like to thank you for all the inspiration! If you want to learn a little more about the award, you can visit my blog post here: http://datatar.blogspot.com/2012/01/liebster-award.html. Hopefully you will get some extra visitors to your blog from mine. =)

    Have a great day!
