What a nice Friday. I had to work today…it was a long day, but I got lots of stuff done. Afterwards, Jerms and I dropped the boys off at Pams (mother in law) house for a few hours and we had a nice date night. We didn’t do anything super crazy, but dinner with no kids is always AMAZING! Jerms and I always have a fun time together.

Jerms.Isn’t he just the cutest? I love my honey bunny.

Today is Michelle (my step-mom) birthday. I made her a card a few days ago, but was unable to share. I didn’t want her to see it on the blog before the big day! She loves to quilt, so I tried my hand at a quilt inspired card. I don’t love the way it turned out, but I learned a lot from it.

Well folks…I am really tired. I spent too much time on Pinterest and not enough time blogging tonight. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get a nice good post in for ya. Or maybe I won’t. I guess you will see tomorrow!

Eureka has been good to us this week. I swear it’s been the most relaxing vacation we’ve had. We have done nothing but relax the entire trip. It’s been amazing.

I wish I had more pictures to share with you, but you would be bored out of your mind!

We did go downtown for about 30 minutes. That was the highlight of our day. Just long enough to see a friend and pick up some fudge from Two Dumb Dames Fudge Factory. They have the best fudge. Diet or not…it’s hard to pass up while you’re here.

Like I said last night…we’ve had such a great time hanging out with our friends. It’s rare to go on vacation and not have a million places to visit everyday. The weather was cool, almost cold at times. Perfect day to stay inside and work on the magazine.

On another note, my iPhone has been acting a little strange. I updated to iOS 7 a few nights ago…not sure if it’s that or just my phone. Has anyone else updated and had any trouble with yours? My phone blacked out tonight and wouldn’t come back on for a while. I thought it was a goner, but it finally came back on and acts fine now. It’s strange.

If you’ve had problems let me know! I’m due for an upgrade, but in no rush to run out and grab a new phone.

Well…my hubby and Lucy(the dog) are snoring next to me. I think it’s my turn to get some sleep.

I’ll try to take pictures tomorrow around town to share with you all!

Happy Friday and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hello!! Today is Thursday and I couldn’t be happier that tomorrow is Friday! My favorite day of the week! Both of the boys are feeling a little crummy. Runny noses and coughing. I’m hoping they feel better by tomorrow. I hate when they feel bad.

I don’t have much to share tonight. Besides work, I didn’t do much today.

With that said, I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects I’ve done within the last month or two. I don’t want to go picture overload. Just some of my favs I haven’t shared with you yet. This may not be Instagram, but I can have my own Throwback Thursday, right? Oh yea! Here we go!

I love chevron. I love teal. With those 2 items on one card it makes my heart happy.

Washi tape is my new best friend. I don’t know why I resisted it for so long. I absolutely love it. Like really, LOVE it! I think this was my first card using washi.

Remember when I said “I love washi!” Well I wasn’t lying. This is my favorite card. I love all the mixed colors and patterns. I gave this one to my brothers girlfriend for her birthday. It was a hard one to let go. I wanted to keep it forever!!

The inside is my favorite. I kinda went washi crazy, but I love the added color and pop it adds. I used my Silhouette Sketch Pens on the writing. I use those a lot. I like hand written sentiments, but I don’t love my handwriting.  The sketch pens are real handy for me.

I mailed my thank you card to my hand therapist yesterday. I can’t wait for her to get it! I’m hoping she gets it tomorrow. That would be a great way to start her weekend!

Have a great Friday everyone! See you tomorrow. 🙂
