Mrs. Humpty-Dumpty...

I have to say that sometimes we get a touch carried away with the assigments that our children get... but this is okay in my book.  It gets the kiddos and me excited about projects.  So my little Kindergarten daughter brought a note home that she needed to decorate a hard boiled egg tolook like Humpty-Dumpty and bring it to school today.  So last night we boiled some eggs and cooled them off and ended up making some serious decisions, like eye color and deciding on a girly version because my daughter really didn't want to make a boy.  It took some convincing, but I convinced my daughter the egg needed suspenders, and she loved them.  We did not however add hair because " ...eggs don't have hair,Mom!" How funny that we had such a good time dressing up a hard-boiled egg with craft scraps, a marker, and a hot glue gun:)

New Projects

I know I haven't posted in a while and I am so sorry.  The summer came to an abrupt halt around the middle of August when my kiddos started back to school and I have returned to the chauffeur mom status again... but that's fun and I love my kiddos and watching them grow up in all these different ways. 

About six months ago (in the middle of this never-ending chaos) I had casually mentioned the thought of starting my own business to my adorable husband.   Horseshoes and Honeysuckle Scrapbook Company was born... actually this business has been a work in progress since about February and a itch in the back of my mind for a lot longer than that.  So this business is the main reason I have been away.  I have obsessed and dreamed and made up my mind and changed it a million and one different times about this endeavor.  The truth is I am terrified.  I am scared to death of failing at this dream. But I know that if I don't do this and give it my best shot I will always wonder. 

September Kit "Midnight Splendor"
So here she is.  When you get a chance stop by and let me know what you think of Horseshoes and Honeysuckle Scrapbook Company.  We will release at least one kit around the 15th of each month that has a bunch of fun stuff to make pages, albums, cards, or whatever else your heart desires:)  I'll be posting ideas on our facebook page and the company blog and of course here. Thanks for being patient and please, please, pretty please check out my website! Thanks for dropping by have a great night!
