Just thought I'd share what my crazy kiddos were up to in the kitchen as I tried to prepare dinner

I'm amazed they fit in the cabinet!

They have one cabinet in the kitchen that is totally their's..they usually just fill it with their toys, but now they've gotten a little crazy and stuff themselves in there!

Thanks for visiting with me and my two monkeys :0)

Enjoying The Duckies

We decided to get out on a relatively nice Vegas early evening and enjoy the ducks!

The little baby duckies are so cuuute!
We enjoyed watching them dive under the water :0)

This little park was a nice hidden oasis, looking in certain directions it was hard to believe we were in the middle of the desert.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Christmas In July

Every July I get the itch to craft for the holidays! I think it might be the fact that it gets so darn hot here, and my mind yearns to escape it!

 So,I made some little snowman cupcake family ornaments for my shop!

One family has a son, the other a daughter but they can be customized to fit your family!

I also made some lovely single snow people. :0)

This one is a mini snowgirl

I need help with a name for Frosty's female friend, lol

I love how cheerful they all look against my new backdrop!

While we are talking snowmen, I also made this jumbo sized cupcake with a fake sugar cookie topper,
I love his sweet smile. He is a one of a kind creation.

Also a first for me is a female frosty friend! I usually just make male sugar cookies, 
but thought, "hey! why not a little friend for Frosty!" I really enjoyed painting and dressing her up, more girl snow people are sure to come!

This is what her friend Frosty looks like:

Thanks for stopping by!
Take care and God bless.

Stop and Smell the Roses..

The kiddos and I are enjoying these lovely roses with our breakfast this morning.
They smell so light and sweet, these are some of the most beautiful roses that I have had the pleasure of receiving lately! :0)

Be sure to stop and smell the roses and hug your loved ones.
Thanks for stopping by!

Playing Around..

I've been playing around with a new back drop for my shop photos.

Clouds have sort of become a little theme for my shop..in my head it works out like this:
"Imagine Out Loud" says to me "head in the clouds"...I know, I guess I have weird connections upstairs, hahaha!

Anyhow, when you order from my humble shop your package comes wrapped in cloud paper:

My banner also has a little cloud action going on, on the sides:

So!..I thought it's be cute to incorporate the clouds into my product photos also!
Here are a few photos for you to look at, please let me know what you think of them.
 I really appreciate the feedback! :0)

I'm really loving this photo:

Thanks for stopping by!!

God bless.

Fun Short Trip To San Diego

While our family was in town we decided to take them to San Diego to
escape the crazy heat for a couple days.

It was so beautiful and cool there!! What a blessing it was to spend a little time at the
beach, I wish I was there again right now!

Coronado Beach is so lovely! The sand looked like it had specks of gold in it, 
that's probably what this couple was looking at! :)

We also went to La Jolla to check out the seals..gorgeous!!

By the time we got there, it was actually cold! 
Memories of smoldering Vegas left happily behind!

The next day we enjoyed the harbor cruise and my brother in law snapped these nice shots.

I can't wait until we get to go back again!!
