Celebrate
Colleen's BirthdayParty
Colleen's BD celebration started at Devine Memories Colleen had decided on Michelle's wall art class for her party. Michelle and Kim came in to host and teach us. As usual great class and a good time with lots of laughter. I made little party favor boxes with my Cricut and filled them with Dove and Hershey Kisses from the Breast Cancer Awareness.. Colleen's birthday hat was fun to make and she did like it. Michelle brought in the best pumpkin cookies from Starbucks and we had chocolate cupcakes and a fruit plate to add to the festivities. The board is such a great and meaningful project. I chose the Daisy D lines and Colleen decided to use some of those papers also. We both came up with a different take on our project. I'm going to add a clock to my frame and hang the wall art in my kitchen.

Update on Sunday

Ok I was so not in the mood to paint this weekend. Bet you all got that idea from my previous message. I managed to get out of my Pj's and go pick up my stamps from Jan, get groceries and my diet pepsi that I'm addicted to and was totally out of. I even managed to vac and mop floors, do laundry, clean pool well 1/2 of it before the pool sweeper thingy broke, trimmed bushes in front and yes played with my CRICUT. The newest all time favorite toy.
Jenn and the kids came over and little Sadera had the cricut mastered and was making lots of "stuff" Anthony made a nut cup for popcorn, Sadera made the popcorn container and a purse and a card for her Mom. She is faster at getting the basics down than I was. Hmmmm.
Anthony took over the camera once again so will post his family pics
ok blogger won't take pics will post in am

Sunday ramblings

Cricut in action. Yeap still playing and learning all it can do, which is alot

Recapping the past weekend


It was a busy but good weekend. As everyone knows I was beyond excited and thankful to get the opportunityto see "Wicked" at ASU.
Unbelievable, great, fantastatic. I guess I could go on and on. Long story short I very much enjoyed myself and of course Colleen was too funny.
We waited quite awhile but it was so worth it to see the performance and get our shirts. I was able to snag a long sleeved and regular t-shirt and the CD. By the way the parrot loves the CD. Colleen was able to get the t-shirt and program which she presented to me! We are dying to wear our shirts.
Great Sunday.

Lazy day Sunday






This has been a lazy day for me. I slept until 7:30 really late as I'm usually up at 4:30 am. Felt good to sleep in. I should have been painting but....I heard my scrap room calling it needed to be straightened up. Well, I started to straighten it up but... I have all these layouts sitting here with no pictures and no journaling so I decided cleaning and painting can wait. Grabbed a cup of coffee and have been addding pics to layouts all morning. I feel a real sense of accomplishment as I have finished many of them. Then I decide I'm going to design my own layout using a transparency. Got this wild idea for a transparency so cranked it out. I may have found a new passion as designing your own transparencies is fun!

Wine red red wine

Jenn and kids and I headed to Home Depot for a new color of paint for the living room to try and repair the horrible faux finish I attempted. We came up with the new color Wine Barrel. Love it love it love it. First coat is almost on. Love the new color almost looks like leather



Jenn doing the fun job of cutting in the ceiling Love ya Jenn

Kids watching movies while we paint can we say BORING!!!!
Ok ok here is the big mess of my attempt at faux finish it was bad!!!!

So today it is maybe back to painting or playing on the computer or sleeping. Tonite is "Wicked" can't wait. Tomorrow is special classes with special people yippee great weekend or as Mr A says all the time nowAWESOME!!!
