Another Gift Share

I am posting this with the hopes that it has been received already-- but just couldn't wait any longer to show you this fun BABY BOY gift I made with Teresa Collins "Chic Bebe Boy" line of papers.   This was one of her releases last year and I have loved it ever since.  Just had to wait for the right person to have a Baby boy and He is finally here!!!  So-- enjoy this idea-- I used a small suitcase found online  and it houses a darling mini-album for MOM to keep track of his growth thruout the year.  Here are a few of the pages.  MOM gets to add her own photos in the appropriate places!!  It was so much fun to make and I know there is a darling little face that will be gracing the pages of it soon!  Happy Friday!!

A fun HOME gift

Just wanted to share this little HOME project I just mailed to my Sis-in-LAW who moved into her new home during the Holidays.  I just knew she would need some new DECOR - so last week I made these paper mache letters with the Teresa Collins NOEL paper line and I am in LOVE with these letters.  I would have kept it for my house, except my name is not MEINTS (which explains the M) .  I just knew it would be a great Housewarming present.  I got the scalloped strips with the LOVE verses from Ormolu -- and I love that website for cool paper gifts.   I am guessing this cool thing is on a New shelf somewhere in Iowa tonight!!

I Heart FACES: Anything but a FACE!

I love the online Community at "IHEARTFACES".  The challenge for this week is "Anything but FACES" and I just had to participate with this photo of Jen playing BB on the driveway!  I hope you will visit the website at and check out the other great shots -- of ANYTHING BUT faces!  Enjoy!!

IN Honor of the Birthday Girl

Today is a very special day for one of the Doodles!  Piper is 1 year old today!  Since we are all such dog-lovers at our house, we always have a special treat planned when they have a birthday!  Brooklyn and Piper both have February Birthdays, so we just had to make a trip to the 3Dog Bakery and set up a birthday photo shoot.  We had fun going to pick out the treats which included "GRASS Ice Cream"  and PupCakes.   Piper was pretty cooperative with wearing her Party hat-- and you can see Brooklyn licked her plate clean!  It was lots of fun for Jensen to help set up the party-- and even the 8 year old - Pansy enjoyed the festivities!
