so i step out of my home office to check on the squawking in the living room and i come upon this:

my sweet baby all pooped out asleep on his daddy in a very seemingly uncomfortable position! LOL - hey when he has to sleep he has to sleep! i can't believe he is almost 4 months old! wow how time is flying!!!

i wanted to thank everyone who participated in my blog RAK - the box is (as they would say in west texas - "lip lappin' full" of MR stuff) and the winner is the poster by the poster name of nicole! congrats! you won the RAK - email me at with your snail mail and i will get your goodies right out!

and thanks for letting me know what you all were interested in learning more about for our products. so to give you a taste of what you can do with some of our stuff (bottlecaps in particular) - have you thought about doing some cute pens with them like this:

this is one of the cool pen toppers i am making with this month's scrapologie kit - if you want to see more of what i do, i will have more things up this weekend at the scrapologie website. but for now, all you have to do to make this is to flatten a bottlecap, add some chipboard and bling and cover a pen with ribbon - you are DONE! think about a whole bouquet of these beauties! i used our new inspiration ribbons, some Blossoms II chipboard and some beautiful glitter chipboard flowers from the Scrapologie kit. i made 2 more of these babies to show off ranjini's fab kit.

i have more things done with our bottlecaps as i am preparing for my bottlecaps class at scrapfest in edmonton next week but i will wait til my class is done to show you those goodies! i am *so* excited to be going up to canada and to share with people what MR is all about and what you can do with our MR stuff. i have met so many awesome people online and can't wait to meet you all in person!

but for now it is back to the grind stone but i don't mind it at all, well on most days (except when people freak out b/c our container arrival is behind schedule - LOL).

I can't beleive how they can fall asleep in any posyion and sleep for ever like that, he is so cute and four months already wow time goes by so fast. The bottle caps are cool and fun to play with, can't wait to see what else you do with them.
