Things to Come

I am excited to share a little list of things that I am SO excited about---things to come!

But first I must say, I had SO so SO much fun crafting with my sister while she stayed with me for her 4 week rotation....she inspired me, kept me sane when I thought my brain might explode due to the stress of my fourth year dental boards, and she just overall took care of me---what an amazing thing!  My sister has always been the one who has inspired me to blog, this may have been why my blogging blossomed with her around....I am always a doubter, I never imagine my ideas are worth sharing...  But WOW each of the positive comments I received during my past few weeks of posting have managed to make my day and inspire me to come up with even more new ideas.  Thank YOU for stopping by my blog, for looking at my humble ideas and for being a potential blogging friend---I have been so so sooooo inspired by other bloggers!

So now, back to my main point, I have SO many amazing things coming up in my life, in my crafts and SO much to look forward to

  • Beck's getting married next weekend in Colorado-I am her maid of honor, and I am having so much fun helping her in the only way I know how-by crafting-last night we dipped and drizzled pretzels (I wish I had a picture they turned out so pretty), we painted pine cones white and glittered them, made tags to tie on to them so they will act as name card holders for dinner, we made bridesmaid jewelry---they match perfectly and they are sentimental---just my thing!

We picked the two blue with the center silver ball to be a bit meaningful since there are only three girls in the wedding including the bride.



I am not great at making jewelry, but it is kind of fun to have something that the bride knows she really likes, and it is cheap and easy!
  • In addition to Becki getting married next weekend---this weekend is her batchlorette party and lets just say I am having fun making things for that as well!!!


We have a little black and white theme going on!  I will show the rest of the decorations if anyone is interested, after the party!


  • I passed my written and patient boards (still waiting on the restults of one last part so not completely out of the woods yet), but I think it is safe to say I am graduating----wooohooo, moving home to be with my love (my husband) and moving into a new house----which means look out decorating here I come!!!  And as a gift for passing boards and saving the 1,000.00 it costs to re-take them my husband simply insisted that I buy myself a celebration gift----another part of my blog post-things to come-----because look out I got my dream machine and that means LOTS of crafting to come!

Ahhhh I feel a little heart flutter just looking at this amazing cutter!


And the funny thing is that I didn't realize until it arrived that it might not have worked with my mac---woo that was a close call! 


I also treated myself to some cute fabrics from fabric.com----I have SOOO SOOO many projects I am getting ready to start!


And finally for my fun crafty project to come---as in as SOON as I have a free second--I am going to up-cycle these beautiful (hahah-but so not my style) clearance plaques I found at home good for $3.00 each---I am SUPER excited!  So stay tuned, there are great things to come.

I can't wait to see what crafts you do with the Silhouette. I got one for Christmas and I'm a little intimidated by it. I know you'll inspire me to get comfortable w/ my Sihouette. (that sounds funny, but you know what I mean!)

I just found you. I can't wait to see all the wonderful things you will be doing. You have a wonderful 'eye' for lovely items and an attitude that makes the wind 'green with envy'.
