Latest Thrifty Purchase

Ever since I saw these lockers over at Making Nice in the Midwest, I've been on the hunt for a set of my own. I saw some at Third Sunday Market last summer, but they were WAY out of my price range. I've been occasionally typing the word "lockers" in the Craigslist search bar ever since, and last week I found them! And can you believe only $5.00 each?! I had to drive to a neighboring town, but it was well worth the effort.
Now I just need to decide what color spray paint and which room in the house.

 Just popping in to share some cards made with the February kit from Little Black Dress: A Trim in Time.
There's always such fabulous trims and ribbons in each and every kit.

I used the wide, wired houndstooth ribbon as the base to my cupcake.

Just a Few | Elle's Studio

There's a new design team over at Elle's Studio with an amazing new gallery for you. So happy to see a couple fellow Little Black Dress Design Team Members over there. Big shout out to Jenni and Keri. While reviewing my own gallery at Elle's, I realized I had so many layouts that I only shared a sneak of or never shared at all here on my blog. I wanted to take a minute and share them with you because I love them all.

Little Black Dress | January

Ugh, where did January go? Here's two layouts made with the January Little Black Dress Kit: Every Little Piece

Gotta love Meijer and their FREE horse ride! We love shopping at Meijer—It's SO MUCH BETTER than Wal-Mart! So there's the free horse ride, and then next to it there's the not free claw machine. Now that Lucas is totally obsessed with Toy Story, he really wants to do it, but I have to crush his dreams every time because we're just not going to start that.

I'm totally in love with my fringed moccasin boots, and I found these cute mini fringed boots for a baby girl (on clearance at Old Navy) when we had the twins. They are just too cute, I couldn't bear to return them even if there would never be another sweet baby girl in this house to wear them. And it's crazy how we got another placement so soon, and they are perfect for her. She looks so darn adorable wearing them. It's so much more fun to dress baby girls! There's hidden journaling in the cute little polka dotted kraft bag that came in the kit.
