1 year

Can't believe that one year has already gone by since we got married it really doesn't feel like it has been that long and then some days it does. We had a really fun weekend just driving and ending up in Jim Thorpe, going shopping and just being together. Can't wait to get started on a mini album about our 1st year and 1st anniversary. I think I will be working on that this weekend when I go to visit Miss Morgan at her store. Hope your weekends were fun now that the rain has stopped.

Destashing update...

All of the Lotto cards are spoken for now. Everything else is still up for grabs if anyone is interested. The following list of people please e-mail me your address so I can send your goodies to you,

Thank you for helping me out Ladies!!!

Etsy update

Ok the new etsy store is now up and running. Still have to load more stuff but for some reason my computer kept losing signal right when I tried to upload my pictures. Very tired over here for some reason. Trying to de-clutter your life is very tiring for some reason. I through out so much stuff tonight I am amazed. Mostly trash some boxes of packaging that I felt the need to keep that I might turn into wrapping of presents some how but never had in the few years that I have had this junk. I feel a little better now, I can walk into my one closet again. Ugh.

Vintage find of the week yummy buttery yellow drawer with the coolest pull ever and love the place where I can put a label. Can't wait to fill it with hmmm.

Oh yeah also finished knitted my first scarf. It is a little thick because it rolled (need to learn how to stop that, anyone know?) but I still love all the colors and hey for my first one I am pleased! Now if I could only find the knit or die t-shirt that Lorelei wore on Gilmore Girls in that episode of the all day knitting! I am addicted, am I going to through out all of my scrapbook stuff??? hell no why do people keep asking me that though, I can have two hobbies!

Serious people

This is free stuff. No strings attached unless you want string :)

Ok people I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed right now with how much junk I seem to accumulate. Yes I know I am a pack rat in a manner of speaking, I like to think of my self more along the lines of a recycler. Why throw that perfectly good shoelace out, yes there may be only one but I know if I sew a drawstring bag someday it will come in handy. Now 5 years later still have the shoelace but no drawstring bag. I’m thinking I have a problem. Lol. So to help me clear through some of this clutter I am doing a mass RAK of sorts. Hopefully this won’t get ugly, nothing mean towards you but if I run out of something I am sorry. I am just going to have to go on a first come first serve basis and hopefully I can accommodate everyone.
Most of the following items I have collected from thrift stores and yard sales so some things are a tad yellowed or bent but hey that just shows their story right? Some items I only have a few of some I have a lot of. I will try to post my quantity to let you know. If there is a certain amount of something you have to have just let me know and I will try to do my best. The strings/threads I will send you one yard unless other wise requested.

Rotary cards: I have about 250 of these to go around.

Spines: There is about 100 of these. Unfortunately they do not have the arms that go through this piece to create the closure, I only just noticed this now. Not sure what can be done with them but maybe someone has an idea?

Brown wax thread: This is a thin brown thread that seams to have a little wax coating but not much at all. It is definitely heavy duty compared to sewing thread.

Pink wax thread: This is a heavy waxed thread as you can see it is bendable. Fairly thick in diameter too.

Playing cards: These are from an old Lotto game. There is not many of these to go around.

Blue thread: Thin blue ribbon, not sure what this would be used for, is not elastic.

Vintage dictionary pages: I have a bunch of old dictionary pages that are bit yellowed and torn out.

Paper bags:
I have a bunch of paper bags left over from my wedding invitations. They are hardware store strength and a bit larger then your average paper lunch bag.

Ok that is all I can post for now. I probably will do another destash as I continue to clean out. If you are interested in anything just leave a comment or e-mail me.

Dirty Dirty look who's thirty...

He looks so thrilled doesn't he? I totally did not wake up in the middle of the night as planned to hang these all over the house so I thought I would just take him by surprise and dump them all over him. Hey, I thought it was funny.
Oh and thank you all for the Happy Anniversary wishes that was so nice, I apologize for not saying anything sooner. Take care all!

As promised...

Here are some of my new layouts. Yesterdays crop was not as productive as I would have liked it to be finally started getting in the groove by 4:30 and we had to leave by 6. But I got some new things done last night and hopefully will today too.

my first whiff of burning leaves...

First of all how do you smell whiff i mean spell? Nat its one of those words that just don't look right. Any way driving home from shopping at the Promenade tonight and I could smell burning leaves it was great. I am so ready for sweater weather bring it on please. Went shopping tonight for my Husband's birthday this weekend and totally spent more money on myself opps. I just couldn't find what I wanted to get him. But I think I have finally found my new fragrance, hopefully this one will last (and won't end up getting associated with bad memories). Its Rosewood from Banana Republic and it comes in this wicked wooden box. (No I did not buy it for the box ... although it was definately a deciding factor)

I so was ready to buy a purse too but just got some really soft tank tops. I may have to go back there this weekend since I am going to be up in the area.
I got my KC Collection from SIStv today. I love it and the papers so much I think I should have bought 2. Can't wait until this weekend SIStv Crop. I have some new pictures to scrap and tons to work with and I think I know not to pack so much this time so it won't take so many trips from the car!

Awesome weekend...

Well first of all I had no idea how much attention this little guy would get but lets just say he was certainly the center of attention at this weekend's crop. It was very cool to get together with some familiar faces Kristi, Nicole, Morgan, and Breanne and also meeting some adorable new faces too, Vee and Natalie. I can not believe how much I actually got done on Saturday. I will definitely have to post some layouts! I was so intimated by the 10 hour time frame but can not say I was stuck for any long period of time. I solely think that was because of all the amazing creative women I was around. These women are so inspiring. Can't wait to get together again!
Well the cat has been let out of the bag. My Husband has been acting completely strange the past couple days. He was asking me all sorts of questions about where I was going to be on Saturday and how did he get there and was he allowed in side (that one cracked me up the most) well apparently his plan to surprise me Saturday did not pan out but today when I came home from work I found this in my parking spot.

I have been, well we have been lusting after this vintage '63 bug when we first found out about it a month ago. But we were trying to be rational and blah blah blah. Well I have definitely learned once my Husband sets his mind to something there is no stopping him. He really wanted to surprise me in front of the girls on Saturday (more likely for him to get the attention:) but today was just as good. I totally had a "what did you do" face while driving up and he was of course taking pictures because he is good like that. As soon as I got out of my truck he was like "Happy Anniversary" ,this is so much better then a diamond ring! We plan on this being our road trip cruiser. Now all I have to learn to do is drive a stick! Piece of cake...right?
