Sneak Peak: Punked Out Baby Boy Scrapbook

NOTE: My shop The Beehive is now Papercut Kitchen! Please visit my shop Papercut Kitchen by clicking here.

The crafting stars must have been aligned for me this week. Not only did I finish up the punked out baby girl album I gave a sneak peak on a few days ago, but I completely scrapped this punked out baby boy album to go with it. All in spite of the fact that my husband spent the entire weekend at Bikes, Blues and BBQ and I didn't even neglect the children! These mini albums are so stinkin' fantastic I can hardly wait to add them to my shop. They should both be there and ready to purchase by the end of this coming week! They're spiral bound mini albums and man do they pack a punch, they are chock full of rockin' papers and embellishments. Happy Scrapping!

I am not even finished with this little gem and I'm so excited about it I had to share a little sneak peak! This little beauty will be in my shop by next week, assuming the kids, dogs, husband, house and the rest of my crazy life can lay low for a that too much to ask? Nah! Psst, there's also going to be a baby boy version!

Custom Beach Scrapbook Cover

NOTE: My shop The Beehive is now Papercut Kitchen! Please visit my shop Papercut Kitchen by clicking here.

I finished my custom beach wedding album cover and it turned out great. So great as a matter of fact that I made it a regular listing in my shop and have sold and made another one! I love getting custom orders, they always get me making things I either hadn't thought of or had been putting off for a less busy time...umm does that time ever come?! So now you can get your own Beach theme scrapbook cover, for wedding or any time, that you can customize with your own favorite colors. Match your wedding, match your living room, match your Grandmother's handmade afghan, it's all up to you!

This scrapbook is post bound and comes with 10 page protectors filled with black, acid free paper giving you 20 pages for photos! Pictures look great on the pages as-is or you can replace them with your own scrapped pages. Don't scrap? That's ok, I do and I can scrap some beautiful custom pages for your beach album, just visit my shop. To purchase, click on the pictures or click here.

Coming soon to The Beehive:
sets of pre-scrapped page layouts to add to any album cover. Stay tuned for more on that! Happy Scrapping!

The Famous Mr. Cash Pugface

Mr. Cash is a model! He's now part of a shop listing in the DoDaaDoggieApparel shop on Etsy modeling the belly bands and bandanna we got him awhile back. I see star potential!

The Year Of The Potter

It all started that fate-filled day in August of 1995. It was orientation week at the U of A when a punked out bookworm was approached by an outgoing, semi-preppy band nerd on the cusp of rebelling against his upbringing. It was a week before their first freshman classes had even begun, she was sitting outside of the library reading The History Of Psychology just for fun and he had time to kill. It was no love at first sight easy romance but he was a talker who made her laugh and think and she was painfully shy, making her an impeccably good listener. Much maturing, dating, foibles and 6 years later they were wed and been happily so ever since!

The Bohemian and I celebrated our 8th anniversary a couple weeks ago and we've been so crazy busy it almost got lost in the mix. But we didn't forget and we both managed to squeeze in themed gifts and a date! Year 8 is all about gifts of pottery or bronze and we love pottery. Our date was fantastic, good German food and beer downtown, drinks on The Arlington veranda, new body jewelry at Redbeard's. Not your conventional anniversary date I suppose but right up our alley!

For gifts I got The Bohemian a mug for math nerds from Karin Lorenc on Etsy. If you love pottery too you have to check out her shop full of fantastic stoneware. My gift I got to pick out myself. Normally I would think this was completely unromantic, but in this case he surprised me by taking me to the Dryden pottery shop where they actually make the pottery and I got to pick my own! As soon as I walked in I was rubbing my hands together in delight, it was so hard to chose. I finally settled on the vase above. The pics just don't do it justice because the colors are beautiful and the shape is so simple and so lovely. It makes me smile every time I see it!

The Beehive Buzz

The destiny of these supplies? Beach theme wedding scrapbook cover!

NOTE: My shop The Beehive is now Papercut Kitchen! Please visit my shop Papercut Kitchen by clicking here.

I'm still breathing and I haven't abandoned this blog (though my other blog is soaking up most of my love at the moment) but man is life crazy busy right now! Mr. Golden Curls has been in school for almost two full weeks now and I'm hoping to try and make a new schedule for myself now that I've got his down. It's all part of my moderation resolution so I can try to be less of an overbearing spaz! And yet it seems the more life loosens up in some areas the more it tightens in others. Not that I want to be sitting around twiddling my thumbs but I do feel sometimes the things I really want to be doing I don't have time for, they get trumped by the more important things. And even though I have one in school and home life is calmer I do still have my little guy home with me so it's not a crafting free for all either.

I have still managed to create and list a few new items for my shop, most recently two bird themed layouts that I really like. I'm about to start working on a custom beach wedding scrapbook cover and I also have some graphic design projects in the works, there's a reason I picked The Beehive as my shop name!
