Yipppeee - Sneak Peeks

I LOVE this time of year. Well weather wise I HATE it...but CHA is right around the corner and I'm spying some pretty awesome stuff for the year!

Pink Paislee has grown to be one of my favorite brands in the last year (they are only a year old - but their stuff is truly AWESOME!!). Here is a sneak peek of some of their upcoming stuff. Also check out their fantastic website and blog.

This line is called Enchanted. I LOVE that tree bark looking paper!

Other brands I've been keeping my eye on are Fancy Pants, We R Memory Keepers, BasicGrey, Crate Paper, and October Afternoon!!

So cool!!! I'm really hoping MemoryWorks adds Pink Paislee to their next catalog (please Amber, Sue, & Kevin!!!)

They are DONE

I finished my red legwarmers last night!!!! My GOSH! It only took me 3 1/2 months to finish. Such a long time for a small project. But they are DONE!! I will post them soon.

I started working on fingerless gloves last night. We will see how they turn out. They are moving MUCH quicker than the legwarmers. So I may just stick to knitting fingerless gloves in the round. They are going to be pink! I was so proud I started it on my own without my mom doing the first 2 rows. HAHA! GO ME! Doesn't look as good as hers does - but i'm still a beginner.

The baby shower is in 5 days!! I can not wait! I got all the little party favors, prizes, and gifts wrapped! I also found plates & napkins to match my theme and cupcake holders. I wrapped the party favors & prizes in tulle and wrapped the thank you gift for my mom & the woman whose house we are going to be at in tissue paper with curling ribbons and made little tags with scrapbook stuff for it! Super cute! It will be lots of fun. My games are all ready - it's just the food prep that I have to do. I think i'll be up late making cupcakes on Thursday.

A week away

I'm super excited! The baby shower is a week away. I still have much to do. A little more shopping (for game prizes and other things). I really hope it turns out great and I hope my sister-in-law has a wonderful time! I am also looking forward to seeing family and friends of the family!

I will have lots of pictures posted after. I have cute ideas for favors and I'm excited about the food! This is the FIRST baby shower I've ever thrown - wait first shower i've EVER thrown. So I'm a little excited :D

Now i just have to remember the baby gifts! EEKs - that would be horrible if I forgot that.

In other news, the weather here SUCKS! This cold winter stuff is not my piece of pie. I would much rather it be above 80 degrees! And no snow! But nope - I live in FARGO! BRRRR...

I got some scrapbooking done this week - a LITTLE! Like 1 layout and a little card. I am hoping to hold a Valentine's card class February 7th! Using the Fancy Pants line.


And look at the paper line (yummy)

Love that little robot!

Anywho - it is on my wishlist!

Baby Invite & more

I wanted to share the baby shower invite i created for my Sister - in - laws baby shower! It is only a few weeks away and I'm soooo excited!!!



Each of the envelopes also had cute little animals on them. I obviously blocked out some of the information... But there are directions to the location and the locations address on the front. The party is obviously animal themed. I also have a few ideas up my sleeve to keep going with this theme. So it's fun!

Here are some cards I made with the MemoryWorks Express Kit (January 2009)

Well that is some things going on right now. I am still working on those RED legwarmers. I hope they are completed someday :D

Fitness Blog

I'm so excited to let you guys know that my personal trainer released his fitness blog! Check it out and check back often! He will be giving information on nutrition, workouts, stories, and much more! Monty's Fitness Blog

His advice has definitely helped me get into shape (along with the workouts he has set up for me). He also does email workout type things - so go over to his blog and check him out! I've gotten results in a short amount of time.

I need to start sharing layouts and projects again! I'm almost done with my first knitting in the round project. I am making legwarmers. They have taken a LONG time. I've been working on them since October! But i am getting close to finishing. I also need to finish my friends Wedding album. I've been slacking.

I will post some projects soon!
