Inspired by... serendipity


Welcome to another...


Serendipity is about finding unexpected and wonderful things. Each week on Serendipity Sunday, I share with you some of the serendipitous things I found that week!

(I just love using that word: serendipitous. It's a bit like saying Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, which is also very fun. Don't you think?)


Okay, back to what I found this week...


While doing Blog Train downloads, I found Designs by Krista and absolutely fell.in.love with her designs!

Aren't these papers gorgeous?


Love. Love. Love.

What's even MORE exciting is that she accepted my application to be on her Creative Team! Yay!

Here's my first LO, using her new Whimsy Collection:

Since I actually have followers on Twitter now, I'm trying to be better about sending, ah, Tweets. Admittedly, this does not come easy for me, especially since I'm careful about tweeting things I think people would actually be interested in knowing – ha!

It was on Twitter that I found out about this fantastic Giveaway!


Sweetopia is giving away two of these babies!

I can honestly say, I have never participated in any blog giveaway.

Until now.

My friend recently lent me her KitchenAid mixer and I.love.it!

Winning one of these would definitely be serendipitous!!

Click over to Sweetopia for all the entry details and please, pretty please, mention I sent you.

So we can BOTH win one!

How cool is that!


Okay, last but not least.

Remember I told you about the two births at our house earlier this week?

Well, yesterday, I discovered there were actually




Aren't they just adorable!!! 

Their eyes aren't even open yet! (can't say that about their mouths – ha!) And yes, their mouths really are that color.  I did not alter the photos in any way.

I'll try and update you on their progress. I have to be careful when I take pictures though. The sound of the camera got them so excited I thought they were going to push each other out of the nest! They must think its mamma coming to feed them.


What serendipitous finds did you have this week?
