My Monthly Picks

Ok, yes, I know I said I would start doing my picks on the 1st of the month, but...well...the 1st is just too crazy.  So, we are going for the 15th...which isn't much less crazy, but...it will work.  So, here they are, my Monthly Picks for May:
1)  We R Memory Keeps Envelope Punch Board - I have been seeing and hearing about this product on Pinterest, blogs, etc.  and I have decided that I NEED it.  So, I have made it my treat when I get my scrapbook room all cleaned up and organized...hopefully, I will have it by the end of summer!

2) Paper Storage - I have been trying to figure out the best way to store my papers int he space I have.  I have tried a couple of different things, but not in love with any of them.  Came across this idea on Pinterest and I love it...and, better yet, I have some of those wire grids that I am not using.  So, weekend project I think!

3)  Chip It - I love this tool!  Yes, it is really for finding paint colors, but it works great for creating layout color palettes as well.

4)  Crayon Box Memory Album - adorable!  I love this idea...what a fun gift for graduation.  I also think it would be a great way to use up those Christmas card pictures you get every year, and if you are like me, you can't throw away.

5)  Punch Art Bra - cute!  I am thinking it could also be a bathing suit top, not to figure out how to punch bottoms.

Whew!  OK, now that I have shared those...how was your Mothers' Day?  Did you do anything special?  We did yard work...we meaning DS, DH, and me.  I know, not very relaxing, but it was I wanted.  Now, the yard is all pretty and ready for some entertaining!  We mowed, mulched, weeded, planted, decorated, and fixed our waterfall.  It was a busy, but productive day.  Then we did dinner (take out from Outback), presents (see picture...remember, I was doing yard work all day & yes, it is a Coach purse) and dessert (cheesecake from Jarek).  All in all it was a lovely day.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
