more nebraska smooches

After a nice relaxing weekend (that included knocking a couple of things off of my 2010 to-do list, more to come later) I found myself bright and early this morning with a link to view a friends Etsy store and I fell in love. Cheers to more smooches!

spring makeover

Progress was made this week - I can now see where the 8 small Christmas trees are that we staked into the ground a bit over 4 months ago. Yep, those same Christmas trees that I only had the opportunity to turn on twice before they were suffocated by the wet, cold stuff.

It is officially almost spring. Not today, today it is freezing cold, but I know in my heart it is coming! :) I'm excited about the possibilities of warm breezes and fresh design.

Remember how I said that my five year old is this really creative ball of energy? I wanted to post her latest works of art - all are concepts dreamed up and designed by our little one. Soo cute!

march love list (via Operation Nice)

One of my very favoritest blogs is Operation Nice and yesterday the assignment was to create a March Love List.

When I saw it I knew that is exactly what I needed - even with a nice long vacation February the endless snowfall, cold, and crispness of 2010 wore off - so a love list of March is a perfect way to start thinking about what excitement I have to look forward to in the next 31 days! I have to say, I am pretty excited after putting everything down on paper!

love, brooke

nebraska smooches

You know the feeling you get when you find a song that you really dig before anyone else and you sing along to it for weeks at the top of your lungs only to casually say, "yep, I've been listening to that song for weeks" when it starts play on the radio?

I totally feel that way about the random finds below with cherry on top being they are all local, Nebraska folks that are immensely talented!

A BIG PS all finds were made possible by Etsy's shop local assembly. (If you haven't shopped via Etsy or even just gotten lost in the amazingness of handmade goodies, today is the day!)

xoxo dyi valentine goodie bags

Remember in elementary school when you spent hours making your paper bag look super cute in anticipation of catching all of those lovely Valentines? Just like birthday cards, something unexpected inside at the end of the day was the exactly what you were secretly hoping for. Mine was the red suckers with the white writing. I don't know why - I just really liked the suckers! I wanted to make Aubrey's Valentine's Day special this year and since she is a little craftista herself, I wanted to channel that creativity into her Valentine's Day cards. I love the way they turned out and they are super easy to make!

You will need:
- bags of Hersey Kisses (I bought one too many, on purpose :) )
- clear archival sleeves (found at Michaels)
- cardstock
- ribbon
- scissors
- hole punch

Step 1: We used 5 kisses per bag, using the smalles archival sleeves.

Step 2: Then we made a leaning tower of ribbon (optional) :)

Step 3: Create/Print off your bag header design. We used hearts from Three Paper Peonies and font via Kevin and Amanda.

Step 4: Punch a two holes, thread the ribbon, and tie in a bow!

Step 5: Drink wine + eat the rest of the kisses!

XOXO, Brooke
