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 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!!

Playing Tourists

We had some family visit from out of the country, so 
we had a chance to act like tourists a little. :0)

It was soooo hot!! It really felt like my shoes were going to just melt right onto my feet!
My brother in law took this lovely photo of the bridge at Hoover Dam.

We also took them up the Stratosphere so they could give the crazy rides a try!
Here are the kiddos enjoying the view and trying not to melt into the concrete! :P

Thanks for stopping by!

My LIttle Helper

Here is another post about my sweet little helper Sophia.

She really love getting in on the action and helping out in any way she can.
When it's time to take packages to the post office she insists 
on doing it herself because she is a big girl and can help!

I think she wanted to inspect the address here, haha

I just had to share my sweet girl with you, I can't believe how 
big my baby has gotten already!!

The fact that her dress matches my packaging was a total coincidence, 
I shall call it a "happy accident," as Bob Ross used to say! :0)

Thanks for spending some time with us!
