saturday i went to the 1st cku convention in louisville at the kentucky expo center. it was sooo much fun. i got there a little early so i could shop...i got some really cute stuff, but i did not spend very much money, so that is a big plus! i volunteered as a TA and i helped in a few classes. the first one was not so much fun as i had to sit and clean off stamps for nearly an hour. the next few classses were taught by a really nice lady named brandon from the company Piggy Tales. her sister, giboney was in and out too and she had the cutest little baby! i had a lot of fun helping them out, setting up scrap kits and listening to the class. i got a lot of ideas and i love love love their interactive scrapbooks. i can't wait to get started on mine!

This what Michael and I have been up to for the past 2 weeks...our living room remodel! The walls are gone, the ceiling is gone, a fireplace is being built and I have 2 awesome new windows. It is a big project and I've learned that I really do have a lot of patience. I can tell you that I don't care for insulation, I like using a circular hand drill (that does not seem like the right name for that tool but who knows) because it makes me feel strong, and always have a plan before you start! Thank goodness for a good friend of Michael's and our neighbor, Larry for all of their help! And did I mention I'm getting a fireplace! Woo hoo, I can't wait! Anyhow, we've been busy!

i made this sweet baby shower card last night for this week's color inspiration. it's the first time i've used my "baby dear" stamp...it always seemed sooo fancy, but i really like how it turned out. the little button i used is out of a big package of brown buttons but it was the only one imprinted with a tiny butterfly. and of course i knocked it off of my table...and right into my trashcan. i eventually found it, and turned around again and knocked it off the table but thankfully that time it did not go directly into the trash. geez.

i've been making some cute little guys made out of felt the past week...they have pins sewn to the back to you can stick them on a tote bag, diaper bag, etc. So far I've made an owl, snail and a little blue elephant. i have more ideas in mind of different animals &/or items to make, but i think i'll wait to see if anyone has interest in these first. they take some time to make even though they are simple. it's a lot of cutting and hand sewing. but they turn out really cute in the end. i dont have a hard pattern for these, just my visions so i just start cutting and sewing. it's a little break from making cards and scrapbooking but still creative.
