Wow, has it really been that long?

Geez, life really sneaks up on you when you aren't looking! I have been so busy at work lately that I haven't had much time to keep up with my online fun! I really need to get back on the ball and start scrapping and blogging again. Have some really cool jewelry I'm doing for a wedding and some other fun stuff I've done. Here are a few things I've been up to lately.

Best Birthday Weekend EVER!!

So, Monday was the BIG 3-0 for me! Eeek! Guy planned the best weekend for me. It started off on Friday with Busch Garden tickets that last all year then we ended up at St Pete Beach until Tuesday. The whole weekend was a total surprise and was beyond perfect. I will be posting pix soon and more details on all the fun. When I got to work this morning my very good friend Jennifer had this waiting for me! How sweet! ;) It was nice to come back to work and have this waiting on me. LOVE how the baloon says 30-ish! Hehehe!

Exciting News

So, a few weeks ago I tried out on Treasured Scrapbooking to be a guest design team member for May and I WON!!! :) How stinking excited am I? VERY! Here is the layout I did for it.I love this layout, probably because of the pictures. This was taken after my sisters birthday dinner and about 3 scorpions from Kobe's Steak House. hehe

Sneaky Peak Sunday

Here are some sneak peaks of a whimsy jar I made for a swap. So of course I had to make a fun and funky bracelet to go along with it. My secret swap person is crazy fun and funky so I'm hoping she'll like it!

Tawna's Birthday

My little sister turned 26 last week, here are some photos from her party. We went to Kobe's steak house and shared one too many scorpions.
Me, my sister and my mom, I swear I'm not adopted!
Here's me and Tawna's favorite pose, can you say Myspace photo! Hahaha
Here's one of me and Guy, he is kinda over the silliness now!

My New Kitchen

So, I know it's been awhile but my computer has been in the shop. Here are some pictures of what my tiny little kitchen used to look like.

Here are the afters. We saved every little penny we could for this and are so excited about how it came out. It's like a brand new house now.

Long time no post! Eeek!

Holy long time no post batman! I've been kinda busy lately and my personal computer took a nose dive so it's been awhile.

I've been scrapping a little lately and hoping to get some beading in this weekend, we shall see...

Here is a layout of our friends who we have been spending more time with lately. They are so much fun and I'm so happy that we are hanging out more :)

3 Updates in a Row?

I am really proud of myself, I have made some super cute jewelry lately. Pink is one of my favorite colors and I made this charm bracelet. I think I may need to add a few more beads to it.
I also made this one, it is kinda simple but it looks great on!

More Beads!

I made the cutest bracelet yesterday! It's a charm bracelet and it also has a solid string of this really cool black color.
Here are the earrings I made to match. They are a little simpler than I usually make but I thought they came out nice.

Cute finds

We have this cute little Shabby Chic store around the corner from my office and I found the cutest little necklace holders. I decided that I would use it to hold my ribbon instead of necklaces. I love them, they look so cute and they gave me a great idea on how to decorate my scrap room!

I think they are supposed to be Marilyn Monroe figurines.

Back to Beading

I finally got back to beading! I am so happy I made myself sit down and start working on some pieces. I made a few to give away, including a few bracelets I am going to give to my secret Valentine on TS, I'll post those latter.

I made a really pretty necklace with blue and silver that I am probably going to use as a present for someone.

I also made a cute set for a very good friend of mine. She keeps joking that I need to make her something so I decided I would :) The necklace is made to hang long and the bracelet is half pearls and half charm bracelet.

Terrific Tuesday

I just watched the new President get sworn in and have a nice warm fuzzy feeling.

I have been doing a lot of scrapping lately, thought I'd share a few quickly. I have decided that I am not going to scrap another thing until I make at least one piece of jewelry, starting today :) ...we'll see how that goes!

Now, on a not so smart note, some friends of ours invited us on a boat ride Saturday. While we had a GREAT time, we FROZE our behinds off! It was so flipping cold, I don't know what we were thinking!

Happy Sunday

It's been pretty busy around here lately. Seems like we are always off visiting with friends and family or having guests over. I was able to get some scrappy time in this week. I used a really neat scrap pack my mother in law gave me to do this lay out of my hubby and one of his little brothers.

I hope to get back to my roots this week and get some jewelry made. It's been awhile since I have done any.
