I am selling, but not what you think.   Earlier this summer, I was introduced to Origami Owl

What is Origami Owl
It's a direct sales company that you can build your custom locket with  beautiful charms and then accessorize with dangles, plates and what not.  When I saw my first Origami Owl locket, I immediately fell in love and started selling the product!!

A lot of things have happened

A lot of things have happened, oh where, oh where do I start?
I really don't know where to start.   Let's see....the little man is growing right before my very eyes!  I can't believe just a few months ago I was pregnant and now we are getting ready to celebrate his 10-month birthday! 
 
When my in-laws came for a visit, they brought a bunch of clothes from all the aunts and uncles.  At first I thought there was no way he'd be able to wear all those clothes in one spring/summer, but as time went on, they proved me wrong.  There was one outfit in the mix that I fell in love with and had the little man wear at least once a week, if not more.  So it was no shock that for his seven-month birthday he would wear that outfit!
**click here to see credits**
 
The little man experienced his first autumn.  He loved the leaves rustling around the sliding glass door and would sit there as they moved, just watching them.  When I took him outside in the leaves for the first time, he was a little cautious, but enjoyed the crunching of the leaves and didn't want to come back inside the house. 

**click here to see credits**
 
We are part of an amazing homeschool group here in the DC-Metro area.  During the fall, the local 4-H donated Washington Nationals baseball tickets to those who were part of the homeschool group.  Let's first say that we are NOT Washington Nationals fans.  It isn't because we hate the team, we just don't like the traffic that the games cause when we visit Daddy at work!  I was so excited to see that the Nationals were playing Philadelphia Phillies, a team that I grew up watching as a child!  I reserved tickets for our entire family to see the game!  It was the first game that all three of the children ever saw in person.  At the end of the day, the girls hated it (liked the food), and when the baby is older, I'm going to take him to another game because it was a lot of fun seeing a baseball game in person again!

Little man has also experienced his first snowfall, while he didn't care for the icky white stuff, I had to document his first, true, snowfall
**click here to see credits**
 
I've yet to scrap these photos as they were JUST taken this weekend--that and I'm still looking for the right kit to use.  Little man saw Santa and it didn't go over very well . . .
 
And of course, last night the Detroit Lions were on Monday Night Football.  To celebrate, we dressed the little man in his new Detroit Lions onsie and took photos.  Daddy came in to the room sporting his Barry Sanders jersey and we took a few photos.  I just wish the lighting in our house was better and the photos turned out nicer!
 
 

 

 
I love it!!  Now to find a cute kit to scrap these photos!

Well, I guess I should close for now.
Until next time . . .

Give the Kids the World

MouseScrappers is at it again, raising more money for charity and you can help! 
 
What is Give the Kids the World?
Give Kids the World (GKTW) is literally the place where Dreams come true. Each year it fulfills the wishes of thousands of children by providing accommodations, meals, attraction tickets, and a whole lot of fun at a 70-acre whimsical resort.
 
How can I help?
On Saturday, November 2nd 2013, Give Kids the World will be holding their annual 5K “Gingerbread Run.” This professionally-timed race winds through the Village, past snoring trees, magic castles and the world’s largest CANDYLAND game. It is a fun way to raise money for the Village, and help fulfill Wishes for more children

Doesn't that look like a lot of fun?
I wish we could, my whole family to raise money for this awesome charity!
Just because we can't doesn't mean we can't donate towards the cause. 
MouseScrappers has signed up as a virtual participant, raising money, even though we can't run in the race.  Isn't that neat and exciting?
 
So how can you help MouseScrappers in being a virtual participant?
If you donate $5.00 towards the cause through this donate button, you will earn one pixie plate pack:
 
Set One
 
Set Two
 
For every donation over $10.00, you will earn both pixie plate packs from Neverland Scraps.  That's right, a $10.00 donation will earn you not one, but two pixie plate packs and all the proceeds go towards Give the Kids the World!! 

So how do you donate?
1.  Click this donate now button to go to our participant page on firstgiving.com
2.  On the firstgiving donation page, enter whatever amount* you are comfortable with; If you don’t wish to show your real name you can put your MS username in the “Display Name” field, or you can check the box that says “I want to hide my name on the fundraising page”
3.  Check your email for a receipt showing your donation amount
4.  Forward your email receipt to donations@MouseScrappers.com.
In your email, indicate which set(s) you would like to receive: Set 1 (Pixie Plates #270-273) or Set 2 (Pixie Plates #274-277). Donations of $10 or more will be sent both sets.

MouseScrappers Template Challenge

In case you missed it, lately I've been hosting a couple template challenges at MouseScrappers.  This week (September 21-October 4) I am hosting a project-life inspired template challenge.

I am not the greatest at blocking and quite frankly struggle with it!  So when I sat down to make this template at 6 in the morning, I just layered and layered on to the page.  Sadly, this template probably was the longest I ever spent creating of all my templates!  So don't be expecting a lot of project-life inspired templates in the future.
 
So where can you find my template challenge?
I'm glad you asked!  You can do so here at MouseScrappers
But remember, my challenge ends October 4th and the links will be removed.
Why no jump on in and create a Disney-inspired layout with this fabulous template!
 
If you happen to be new to MouseScrappers, tell them Neverland Scraps sent you!
 
Until next time . . .

Back to School

It's true, we are doing another year of homeschooling.  I had been dreading the start of school for a very long time.  It was rough finishing up the school year with the birth of the baby and I had figured the start of school would be just as rough, especially given that he's not the best napper and is very hands-on.  In spite of my hesitation, the girls begged for days to start school early.  I wasn't planning on starting school until after Labor Day, when we got back from our last vacation to my parents.  However because of their consistent nagging, we decided to start school earlier than planned. 
 
How is the school day going?
Shockingly, its going really well!! 
In the morning, the girls get up and get ready for school, getting their books and taking them to their room where they work on the subjects that are self-explanatory.  During this time, I am able to get the baby ready for the day, play with him and give him some attention.  Then around 10am, he takes a 30 minute powernap, where I am able to help the girls with their subjects and to monitor what they are doing for the day.  When the baby wakes, its the four of us doing school together.  By the time the school day is done, we've shuffled from class and playtime at my desk, to the living room, to the kitchen and to each of the three bedrooms!  It is a constant moving around with the baby, keeping him occupied, but the girls don't mind the changeup and are learning a lot and its only been a few weeks!
 
Since it is Back to School time, a lot of kits have been hitting the digi stores.  I know you have seen them, don't deny it!  I know you have seen your friends photos on Facebook of their kids heading off to their first day of school.  Being homeschooled, the girls don't get that photo opp, instead they get to get photos with their books and whatnot to show off their back to school age, etc.

This is how the photos turned out this year
**click here for credits**
 
The oldest wasn't too keen on putting the pencil to her mouth, but did it anyway.  Im glad she did because of all the photos, that one was my favorite!  She still doesn't like it and is grossed out about it every time she sees this layout!
 
This is the youngest, she took more coaxing this year with her photos and had to have the puppy in some of the photos with her since he is incorporated in to the school day.

Time sure is flying, next thing you know I'll be posting Christmas photos!
