Got to go into town yesterday and of course one of my stops was TARGET. Well, I was on a mission and not only did I complete my mission but I got Brownie points. My son has a birthday party on Saturday and I needed a boy present. My present supple is running low since the move. Well, today I replenished my supply. Target clearance was overflowing with gems I had to stay focused. I found these gems in the 70% clearance. Not only did I get future presents but as spring break and summer approach, these will be great to entertain my daughter. (Money well spent!!!)

1. I successfully completed step 6 "Make sure you gain Google authorship" in , 8 Tips to Maximize Your Google+ Presence by Jenny @ The NY Melrose Family.
2. I read and successfully completed, How to Verify your blogger blog on Pinterest by Jamie @ Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. She has a great tutorial and if I can do it without a hitch, there is a good chance you too can have success.

Walked into Target and Easter was in the air. In the dollar section were these cute bunny ears which inspired this craft. You can look at Halloween Letter Craft for tutorial on how to make. Have fun crafting...
The Paper is from a all season stack from Hobby Lobby. I used Easter eggs, grass, ribbon and rhinestones to embellish the sign.
Of course the cute bunny ears have center billing on top of the O.
I found these cute little chicks at Micheals. I used a 1/4 yard of furry green fabric as the grass.

#1 Has she gone crazy.
So, I have really started to commit to my blog and start getting it out there. I moved from Arizona and all my family and friends to a small town in Utah. Overnight I had lots of time on my hands and nothing really to fill it. I love to do anything and everything crafty. So, I thought I would begin blogging to stay connected and to share my work. Anyway, if you're a blogger you understand the mountain you have to climb to get from point A to Z.
It's been a few months and WOW I have come along way. I have a few more ups then downs, but man the downs are a bummer. Thursday I hit my blogging overload... Have you been there? I feel like I was on information overload. I'm so thankful for so many great bloggers sharing great info, but I was in the middle of reading this great post, 8 Tips to Maximize Your Google+ Presence by Jenny @ The NY Melrose Family.
Something I knew nothing about before blogging. I finished reading step 1 and it went over my head. I could understand the words, but at first I couldn't figure out what she was saying to do. UGHHHHH! I began yelling at my computer as if that would help. My husband was looking at me like I had gone crazy. And there it was the start of my melt down. I was tired of reading something great, that made me realize I was doing things wrong, yet again.
So, my husband slowly approached me like I was a wild animal and ask, "What is wrong?" (bless his heart I'm sure he wasn't expecting what followed. I began ranting and ranting and ranting. Spitting out random words like SEO, Pin it Button, Link Party,Google+, that made him go WHAT???? He really had to talk me away from the edge. He helped me regroup and focus on why I was blogging. To connect, to create friendships, to share. He asked me to set 1 goal to work towards. So, I looked at him and said I want more followers, my first goal is 15. He then RAN out the door to work. (Just kidding backed away slowly I could attack again)
This is why I have a great husband. Later that day I logged on my blog and saw I had 2 more followers. I jumped for joy and as I looked to see who these lovely people were. I saw one of them was my husband. He just made me smile and believe he would do anything to make me happy.

I love the church saying "I never said it would be easy, but that it would be worth it." I know that often applies to life, but I equally think it applies to marriage.
I really do have a great husband;
he came home last night with some tulips (my favorite flowers). Today, we went to lunch before he went to work and even though we didn't do something spectacular it was so perfect. Because, I felt like after 10 years, my husband is my best friend and no matter what we do, it's great. (We did make out so it was better than great)
