Etsy loves - Matryoshka dolls

Have I mentioned that I adore these? I always have. My parents have several, some from Russia and some collected along the journey of life. I have always loved sitting down and taking out each one until you get to the teeniest one. Etsy, of course, has some really fun ones and I thought I'd share the ones I've either already purchased or just would like to someday. . .among many other things (I think my faves list is 29 pages. . .eeek!).





I purchased these before Christmas. . .I thought they would make very festive gifttags and. . .I kept them! I love to look at them - they make me so happy. =) I'll give them away eventually, but not all of them! Check out her whole etsy. . .all kinds of crafty goodness there!



She has THE cutest brooches with all kinds of little beads and buttons - check out her whole store!


Also. . .I did not forget how to scrapbook. . .whew!

Used the latest Noel Mignon kit. . .it was all girls and that prima stamp sealed the deal for me (afterall, I have 3 girls - it was a sign, right?).

Hope your week is a wonderful one! My poor dh has begun his week with Strep throat! I am praying (and lysoling) that it stays away from the rest of us. He finally went to the dr and took a shot that is supposed to help it clear up in a day or two. So he has been getting babied and I hope to return to my normal duties by the end of the week. ;-) Be sure to check out my "365" - link to the left to keep up on our daily happenings. If you're not familiar with Project 365, it's been around for awhile and it started with Becky Higgins (I think?), and you take a picture a day (thus the 3.6.5.). I've wanted to join in for awhile, so no time like the present, eh?

This is a darling layout...my favorite is how you cut out the circles in your book paper to make your journaling spots...very clever! :)
