Hurry Up Spring! Plus a Tag Tutorial on the Art Studio!

Hello everybody!  How are you all today?  Hopefully doing well.

I am experiencing a bit of cabin fever lately.  I just want Spring to get here and stay here!  I know it isn't even officially time for Spring, but I am totally ready to be done with winter. I think my kids feel the same way.  They played touch football after Hollyn's second birthday party.  It was sunny, but there was snow on the ground ~

Speaking of Hollyn's second birthday party, it happened a few weeks ago.  This cutie had a Chipwreaked birthday party because she loves the Chipettes (and the Chipmunks).  Her favorite is Jeanette, so I made her a birthday shirt with Jeanette.  Here is the front ~

Here is the back ~ 

Wow, it is tough to get a picture of a 2 year old at her birthday party!  :)  Here are a few more pics.  First is the limbo photo,  they loved that game ~ 

Then it was time for cake (of course Cooper and Kaya were ready to help blow out their little cousin Hollyn's candles if need be) ~ 

Then present time, how fun!  

 Last weekend we celebrated my beautiful daughter's 30th birthday.  Love you Sweets!

Besides dinner, for her main present I made her a family necklace with the kids, Dut and her birthstones and some other items.  I was pretty happy with how it turned out, and she loved it too.   ~

It was all fluffy and pouffy in the package (I will be doing a tutorial on how to make this style tag at The Art Studio too) ~

Coop and Kaya spent the night with us after dinner.  The next morning we made super yummy cupcakes.  Here they are still in jammies, making cupcakes for Mumma ~

Here are the finished cupcakes.  

 I have a Tag Tutorial on the Art Studio Blog, check it out here.

Well, that is it for me today.  I hope you all have a joyful and creative week, and come on Spring!!!  ;)  ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
