Random Things From My Weekend

Oh my goodness September is almost over. I seem to still be in August and soon it will be October. My new Halloween Banner is courtesy of Sandy. Love this banner and even though it is still in the triple digits I am dreaming of cooler temps, soups and casseroles (my comfort foods).

So again it is Sunday afternoon and time seems to have accelerated and my weekend is gone. It was a very busy weekend starting with a trip to Michael's for what we thought was a duct tape demo for making costumes. Alas it is next Saturday. Oops wrong day. Sadera is duct tape queen so we were all disappointed well maybe not Anthony that we had the wrong day. We did manage to pick up a few things for craft projects to get us into the Halloween mood. After our failed Michael's trip we headed to Olive garden for soup and salads. Good food and good to be with Jenn and her family. One of these days TJ has got to drive in from Casa Grande and eat with us. So far we haven't convinced him.


Carol's Heirloom Class

I was lucky enough to be able to attend Carol's Heirloom class on Sat. What a wonderful day with the most amazing hostess Patty and the best teacher Carol. The food was so fabulous, the group of ladies the best, and our class simply over the top. Below are the photos of my finished book. I love it. More posts on the food later. I can't say thank you enough to Carol, Patty, Earleen and Annette for encouraging me to join them

Beautiful fabric cupcakes were gifted to us by Carol. As a bonus she taught us how to make them!

Where did the weekend go????

It doesn't seem to matter if I have 3 days off or a normal Saturday & Sunday off, it is never ever enough. Here it is already 7pm and I am getting ready for work tomorrow. Last early day and then back to the old routine. So what did I accomplish this weekend?? not too much as far as the home front goes. Just the usual laundry and clean but no yard work. Now on the creative level I had a great inspiring weekend. I rode to Payson with Earleen and Annette on Sat am for a class by the 2 gypsy girls Debbie and Paula. I had my doubts I could construct a house that would stand. Due the patience of the 2 Gyspsie Girls my house is still standing today:) I loved this class. The roof holds the little album and the clever use of the 7 Gypsy elastics made the page signatures so easy.

After class we joined Annette and her family at their reunion. Invited crashers we were. We feasted on Alaskan Salmon thank you Robert and all the yummy goodies from a reunion. A couple of quic…

Catching Up

It has been a couple of weeks since my last blog post. I thought I better get going and catch you all up on what is going on in my life.
I signed up for Karla and Beth's online Romantic Gothic Ghosts. I am loving each and every tutorial.
My latest is this pillow. It was actually supposed to be a tote that Beth made but I decided to make a pillow out of it.

Beth's little notebook

Karla's banner. Again I changed it up and hung it on a floral wreath wire thing. Not sure what you call those things

The last weekend of August was filled with celebrating Miss Maija. We celebrated her 50th birthday with a surprise party that Earleen was the hostess. Annette hosted a brunch Sat am before we all headed out shopping. We came from near and far and the best thing was we all kept the secret so well. Maija was Surprised for sure. From Friday and Saturday It was a weekend of food, fun, shopping and make-n-takes. The best of weekends by far. I just didn't get many pics as I guess …
