A New Way To Let Your Creativity Shine

The other day I came across an opportunity for bloggers to review a new line of high end bracelets. I decided to look further into the product and their idea of "customizing" a bracelet. Come on it's a leather bracelet how much customization can occur ( an initial here, a burned in imprint there). Oh no my friends! These folks really let you get into the nitty gritty of the design. For example: Do you prefer a traditional cow leather or would you prefer frogskin? Do you want brown leather or is sapphire blue more to your liking? If you love bracelets and making something one of a kind, this is the place for you. The bracelets are a bit pricey but if you have an upcoming birthday or anniversary it may be a good time to start dropping little hints.

Guess what! There is even a chance to win a FREE bracelet!

Shebusa Custom Leather Bracelets

The bracelets are made of metal and are merged with precious and luxury leathers such as Ostrich, Alligator, Stingray and snakeskin. For customers who are looking for something more original they offer frogskin or beavertail leather which has an absolutely unique feel.

All of the bracelets are made to order and therefore allows customers to choose the design, the plating and of course the skin with whatever colour they want.

Psssst.....if you use the coupon code MYGRAN you will save 15 %.
That leaves more money in the scrapbooking budget ladies! If you happen to bump into my Hubby over the summer please feel free to let him know I am loving the little green frogskin bracelet.
But hurry it will only work until August 31.

Here we come summer holidays!

My Grandma always used to say "absence makes the heart grow stronger" when I would come home for summer holidays convinced my life was over because I would not be able to see my friends for the WHOLE summer. Well I survived as you may have guessed and now the thought of a summer away camping makes my spirits soar.  I am just floating on air today as I pack up my crafty things (I have my cuttlebug, cricut, beads, paper, adhesive, paints, ribbons, ink pads, stamps) and get ready to head out into the wild yonder(I think i better look to be sure I left room for groceries and the kids!). I consider it wild because I will be without internet for the entire time (minus the times I sneak on with my cell phone to check my facebook). Come on, that would be barbaric not to have facebook for 9 whole weeks.  So I am off tomorrow as soon as my babies get off the bus. I am starting to pack my car tonight.  I will try to upload the odd post over the summer if I am back at the house (gotta have clean clothes sometime) but it will be sporadic at best.  I will be thinking of you all summer and hoping that you are enjoying good friends and good weather somewhere with a lovely view!

Something in the air

Well usually when I hear that saying it is reference to Christmas or someone falling in love. If you were around here lately it would have a totally different meaning.  I can never remember a year when the trees produced so much fluff.  It started early last week and my little one was miserable. His nose started running then his asthma kicked in high gear and by the time Sunday night rolled around his eyes were leaching as much green mucous as his nose.  One by one we were struck down with sore throats, migraines, itchy eyes and a hacking cough. We are all in misery. That my friends is my excuse for not posting sooner.  We have a reprieve from the fluff today so everyone seems to be feeling a bit better. I thought I would just pop on quickly to share my new haul of trinkets.  I am not sure what I am going to use them for but they are pretty just to look at for now.

Also, as summer is here and everyone seems to be partaking of canned beverages I have sent the word out around the camp that i want them to save pop tabs for me.  If you have a chance check out these two youtube videos for great ideas for crafting with pop tabs.

I love all this chickie makes.These girls are so talented!

More Lovely Scrapbook Paper to Ooogle Over

Hello Ladies;
My husband and I had our first daytime date in the last 10 years today. The bigger kidlets were at school and my little munchkin was at preschool so Hubby and I had a the chance to go out to a grown up restaurant  and to shop without trying to stay in the centre of the aisles so little hands did not remove the shelf contents onto the floor. I forgot what it was like to just wander a store with no time constraints. To make matters better he took me to Michael's where they had all their paper collections on sale 47% off.  Needless to say I had to grab two. I purchased The Primrose Stack and The Preppy Princess stack  (DCWV)and I can hardly wait to crack these babies open and start creating. I will be sure to post pictures of what I make. I am thinking that they will make lovely mini albums. If you have used these stacks please send me a link so I can see your projects.

The Most Fun You Can Have Without Leaving Your Basement

Hello Friends,
I know that I intended to post crafty and family related stuff on this blog on a more..ahem...regular basis, but that is the reality of being a Mommy Blogger right? We are busy doing the Mommy side of it and have little time for the blogging end. That being said I have to share with you one of my new favourite things.  Blog Hops! I just discovered them and I am having a blast meeting new folks with common interests. Today I am part of the Blog Lovin Blog Hop at Happy Kids Inc.

You should try it. Even if you don't have a blog, just start at the beginning (or end if you want to be all wild and crazy) and pop onto each blog link. You will be amazed at the things people blog about! You are bound to find some interesting new blogs to follow.  So though this is neither crafty, homeschool, recipe or family life related I am posting this baby and filing it under Inevitable Ramblings of My Daily Life.  See, I knew that little loophole in the description would pay off someday!
