Thanks for your HELPING HAND and new Doodle Frames-giveaway!!!

Happy Saturday to you all! I am feeling really relaxed and refreshed on this fantastic Saturday! Yesterday I took a mental health day and really just did what I wanted to do! I started off with Pilates and then took a cycle class! I also enjoyed a nice coffee, took a nap, and then went out with my hubby! We went out for some appetizers and drinks and did some shopping! I got a new pair of sandals! 
 
They sure feel awesome on my feet! Having planter fasciitis it is hard to find comfortable sandals that support my very high arch!

Today waking up felt like Sunday! But it's not:) I took my absolute favorite class in the entire world...Step! Have I told you I plan on getting certified to teach? I have a passion for it and I can't wait to look into classes and such once we move! I can't start it now! I went grocery shopping, laundry, vacuumed, dishes, and cleaned the cat box. I have been busy! 

I was able to squeeze in a nap too! Now, I am able to do a good amount of work!

First, I really wanted to give a parent in my class something for the end of the year! She has been truly my only parent to help out! She donates all the time, comes in on Fridays and makes copies for me and so much more!

So I found these colored hands at Michaels. They come in a few other colors, but these are the colors I chose to use! I had the kids write a thank you note on them!

Then I went to Bath and Body works and got matching colored hand soap! 
   
Then I placed the hands on the soap! 

SUPER cute and easy! I am going to throw in a towel with it, and maybe a gift card to a kitchen store? What do you think?

My mind has been SPINNING with things I want to make, need to make, things to blog about...I just can't keep up! I feel like I am starting something, working on it and then starting something else! 

I have an Erin Condren Life Planner...but I don't use it. I really don't like it:( I wish I did! It just doesn't work for me! 

So today while I was at Walmart, I picked up some new pens and a cute new lined notebook! This will be for my blogging and creating ideas!

So speaking of starting something else...I have made 15 new doodle frames! I think I am getting better at them the more I practice! 

Here they are:)




I really want to make some more! I have a color set started! HAHA! I am working on adding them to my store tonight!

Would you like to win these for free? Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner by 5pm tomorrow!  

Enjoy your Saturday!

  9. I love your frames! I have an Erin Conder Life Planner as well. I think I used it one day! I guess I thought if I spent a fortune on a planner it would force me to use one. Nope!

    1. I use art studio app on my ipad!

  17. I have art studio, but I can't figure out how to make frames. I wish I could find a video to teach me how. I downloaded it and tried to use it about 3x. I haven't opened it since. I am hooked on fonts though:) I put those frames on my wishlist!

    Good idea for the hands and soap- I have a few parents that I need to get a gift for at the end of the year...might have to use it!

  21. Your new doodle frames are absolutely adorable! I will use them all the time. FYI...I wear Dansko clogs to teach in and they are sooooo comfy. I justo bought a pair of scrappy sandals from Dansko and love them just as much!
