Hello! My name is Shannon Crossin, owner of Crossin My Heart Creations. Besides being a business owner I'm also a SAHM. My sweet little girl is 6 years old. She is me and my husband, of 8 years, pride and joy. Please visit my online store at: www.CrossinMyHeart.com Creating is a passion of mine that I love to share!
This colorful dress was my first purchase from Zulily My daughter loves it because it "twirls" really well
And this is a new design from Luna B. Tee - a dress instead of a Tee/Onsie
This is in no way a frugal obsession - but they are pieces I would pass down and hang onto instead of donating or selling (except the personalized dress of course). So in some ways, it is sort of an investment.
We started a tower garden (bought from Juice Plus)
Before we planted our baby plants into the garden we had to grew most of the plants from seeds. All but two seedlings where planted into the tower at about 10 days after planting the seeds. Then added two slow poke seedlings at about 13 days.
We purchased our starter strawberry plants online
This is the tower as of today - 3 Days from planting
Growing in our tower: Cantaloupe Broccoli Cucumber Lettuce Two types of Tomatoes LOTS of Strawberries
In about 4 weeks we should have a full blown vertical garden on our front porch For more info on purchasing your own tower garden: Contact Steve C. HERE

Easter has become something different for our family then what I used to remember it being as a child. And I mean that in a, that's not a bad thing, kind of way. I'm blessed to be able to pass on some of my own childhood traditions to my own little girl now.
Our family, Easter Sunday, circa early 1990's
We would always go to church with the family, head back to our Grandparents house where magically the Easter Bunny had always seemed to have had hid the eggs just in time for us to run off all that energy we had stored up sitting in church. Easter lunch was always big and family time was important.
Now as a mother myself - we still hold some of those traditions, but this year Easter was celebrated at our own home.
Happy Easter 2012

This year my mom helped me to make the Easter spread, buffet style Instead of a giant Easter ham, we settled for "fancy" ham sandwiches The traditional deviled eggs are of course, a must
And I'll leave you with the funniest part of the entire day... Gramma and Granddaughter take an Easter tumble - right in front of the cameras :)
