A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You

Hi everyone!

Let's see...we're at Tuesday, right? :D So how's your week going so far? I'm running all over the place, internet-ally speaking (lol) but wanted to drop in and give you a look at what I (and Toot!) have been doing. First, Toot loves watching Blue's Clues with Pete...

Too bad this show is long gone, she loves it!

Next, here's a little hat I crocheted for my Dal (it's suppose to look like Mickey Mouse ears :D):

"Take me to Disneyland...STAT!"

Let's check in on Toot...Ah yes, here she is enjoying her new pool:

She really is a little mermaid...L-O-V-E-S the water!

And last but not least, here are my ATCs for the "My Favorite and My Best" ATC swap group. This month we did our favorite color and surprise surprise as to which color I picked! lol

I used Barbie magnets, Nikki Sivils "Breadless Tags", my handy dandy Dymo label maker, bits from Gauche Alchemy's Pink Parts Mixed Media Color Kit and stamped ink through punchinella to add some interest to the background and of course added Magenta Stickles.

There's actually a ton more going on behind the scenes here but there's a couple of things for you anyway. lol What are you up to this week, creative or otherwise? :D


  1. OMG, Toot is so freakin' ca-ute! I'm heading to CHA in Chicago on Friday...can't wait to buy a TON of crafty goodies! :D

  2. Awe! My daughter loves Blues Clues too! We have to DVR all of the shows in syndication so she can watch it in the mornings :)

  3. I just came across your blog and wanted to say: Luv it!
    Thank you for sharing!

  4. OMG those pics of Toot are soo cute! I can't believe how big she is getting!
    And your crochet mickey mouse ears for your doll are fantastic!
    I got my pink ATC yesterday and you totally rocked it!
    Hope things are goig well.

  5. First of all. Let me just say. Love Is... opening an envelope for glitter to fall in my lap and Craig to go *sigh* that's from Maggi isn't it? *grumble, glitter, grumble, grumble* LOL! Excellent! Love the ATC SO much. It came today ;)

    Love the Mickey Mouse ears. Love Toooooooot! So cute and such concentration!

    Creatively, um, am scouting round wondering whether to do an irl class or an internet class. Been feeding up my doggy who I now think is playing up the puppy dog 'I've been poorly give me food' eyes to the MAX! And generally refereeing WW3 between the girls since school broke up ;)

    Loving you blogging more often Maggi! Mwaaah!

  6. Your little TOOT is precious! Love the pool pictures! I also love the Mickey mouse hat you crocheted!! It totally looks like Mickey's ears!!

  7. Lovely pics of Toot!

    Hope you're all having a great week!


  8. Toot is just too adorable for words! I know I say that a lot, but it's true. She has so much personality! The dolly hat you made is great. I've been working on a few new paintings. Getting very excited about them. :) Enjoy the week! Theresa

  9. Toot just gets cuter and cuter all the time!

  10. Oh Maggie,
    the ATC's are really good. I love how you created them with the Barbie's . And Toot is so darn adorable in the little pool, love the little swim dress. It is so much FUN having a little girl to dress in such sweet outfits. She is getting so big, they grow too fast don't they. Sending my friendship love to you, always enjoy my visits to your blog.

  14. AWWW! Toot looks EXACTLY like the little mermaid!!! She is awesome!!

    My kids watched blues clues, and I can still, sing EVERY SINGLE WORD, to both Steve and Joe's intro. Same words, sang a little different. It's a nightmare I frequently have. That's for another day!!

    My boys are 11 and 13!! Blues Clues isn't on anymore. That is sad. It was a fun show for the babies.
