Shine & Packing


Shine is in the DSO store for only $1.50


OK, so I’m pretty sure this is too many clothes for the week especially since the majority of the time we will be in the pool or ocean! 
Will I want to wear shorts, capris,  or maybe a summery dress??? I just can’t decide, so I guess I’ll have to take it all! LOL

Only 2 weeks

Only 2 weeks until my girls trip! Woo Hoo!! I can’t wait! This is the BIG trip we take every couple years.  We are going to the beach for a WEEK!   We usually take several weekend trips throughout the year too.   We all grew up together and have been friends FOREVER!  We have such fun on these trips, laughing, eating, laughing, swimming, laughing, playing cards, laughing…. you get the idea, my sides hurt from laughing so much!   I am so blessed to have such good friends!  They are really part of MY FAMILY!


There’s also only 2 weeks left to use my coupon!  Remember it’s good on everything….so GO SHOPPING!

Banana Tree and a Freebie

We planted a Banana tree back in May and look at it now, it has really shot up!  It’s a Cavendish banana tree, maybe in a year or 2 we will have some bananas.

{I used my new kit Soft and Sweet to make this layout.)


Now for your freebie, I made a template out of my banana tree layout.

You can download it here.

Hope you enjoy your Sunday with your family.

M’mmm…… good

Today I cleaned and cooked a pound of fresh gulf shrimp and made some tangy  cocktail sauce!  The secret to good shrimp is DO NOT over cook it,  3 minutes and it’s done!  It was absolutely wonderful.  There is nothing better than fresh shrimp.  It is one of my favorite foods.    

For your drooling pleasure!


I sure hope the cap on the oil leak really does work.  I feel so sorry for everyone and everything in the areas affected by the oil spill.    I thank God that it has not affected our beaches or our seafood!

I finally finished my new kit, it’s called Soft and Sweet because when I was trying to name the kit that’s all I could think of, LOL.  I hope you like it.

Happy 4th of July & a freebie

I hope everyone has a great holiday!  Take a moment and remember what we are celebrating today.

“During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the American colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia.  After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4.”          read more about it here.

DSO is celebrating with a storewide sale!  You save 30% on everything!

I also have a little freebie for you to help you celebrate



Download here.

Hope you get to watch some fireworks tonight!!
