On the Agenda

yesterday, christopher did not want to wait to get his stitches out so we got out a magnifying glass, tweezers, a needle, and small scissors and went to town pulling out his stitches. it took forever because our small scissors were not that sharp.
i would totally recommend going to the doctor for pulling stitches out unless you are super stubborn!

The Craziness is Over

we got all the big furniture out by 4pm Saturday, woot! and i didn't even have to help.
my gig was to pack the boxes and move it into the hallway/stairway for loading.
By 6pm Christopher tells me, "don't worry, it's not that bad." i look down and he is dripping blood from his hand. once he returns from the bathroom i ask what are you going to do. He said, "you are going to drive me to the ER."
so off we go, to wait 3 hours at harborview for 8 stitches.
i could go on and on about which moments nearly broke me down.
i will say i on sunday i almost started to cry, but i held back my tears and sucked it up.

it is over now, thank you Jesus! all that's left is cleaning the old place. we are almost unpacked too because that little streak of OCD in me can't live in boxes! :)

and i must say....I Love Our New Place! Sandy has a craft room, woot!

On the Move

had a wonderful productive weekend. saturday was craft day with the girlfriends in bremerton. victoria, adora and i caught the ferry and enjoyed a massive meal from dg (chicken fajitas, super nachos and homemade ice tea) victoria made flan for dessert that made me wanting more and adora brought an asian salad.
i spent time cutting out embellishments that i have made in photoshop and making more twine banners for upcoming birthday cards.

once i got home i started packing my craft area up for an upcoming move. I.Own.Too.Much.Stuff!
it is crazy how much i have horded over the past 10 years. Kinda Crazy I Say.
Will be nice to organize and downsize my stock for sure.

Project #1 - Mom Album

this album is really unique because the label side is longer than the inner page allowing us to create ruffles, banner borders, secret pockets and a circle spinner that won't get damaged.

Project #2 - Stationery Set

so we made this really cool stationery set (vellum tag pocket for postage stamps, printed bo bunny postcards and stationery and pocket for the envelopes)

Already To Go!

Thanks to Mouse Paper Scissors I am already to go with Mother's Day. Gifts wrapped, cards made and sealed (even made a card for Christopher's mom and got it in the mail, woot!) and lunch planned!
I used Alene's box maker and made the hot pink box with 2 pieces of 8.5 x 11 cardstock. The other one I took a large piece of decorative paper and turned it into a folder by folding and stapling. I am pleased with how they turned out and I didn't have to run to the store for a box. Love it when I pull things from my stash and use what I have on hand.

Mom Day Cards

so have you made your mother's day card yet? i used a technique from class to make a fast and cute card for my mom. embellish your embellishment with a transparency, pretty cool, eh!
the other one is a free download from rhonna farrer. thank you rhonna! just added patterned paper underneath, pop dots to the ribbon award and a butterfly cut out! voila!
