Memorial Day Pictures

Our Memorial Day started out with a parade right outside our window.
Filled with marching bands and kids in wagons.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day too!

Tissue paper flowers that is! I made these lovely flowers today and can't stop making them!
I stamped a pattern on tissue paper, then cut out circles and layered them. Sew on a button and you have yourself a flower!

Off to make some more! Have a great three-day weekend everyone!

I am a bad blogger.

But I have an excuse, it's not a good one but here it is anyway. I finally figured out how I want to scrapbook this year, and as you can see from the state of my scrap table and room below, it kind of took over last week.
It might look like a huge mess but I do know where everything is, so it can't be all that bad.
This is the layout that got me started. I began to go through our pictures from our January cruise and was inspired. I got about 5 layouts done this week which is more than I have done in a while. 

I am on a roll now and am ready to finish all of the pictures from January and head onto the next month! And I promise to be a better blogger this week too!

Some things I love right now...

1. I love looking at JD Perry's Toothbrush photo blog every day. He is taking a picture of himself every day for a year brushing his teeth in the morning. Sounds boring, but no, he has some really creative and funny photos and each day is different. Definitely check it out!

2. The new song from Paolo Nutini called Candy. Great song and I can't wait for the whole album next month.

3. Video chat on my mac that I just figured out how to use so I can
talk to my friend Shannon!

4. Iced Berry Chai tea's from Starbucks, I think they have something 
other than tea in them because I am addicted to them!

5. That in 33 days I will be in Europe seeing some favorite places and 
finding new favorites too!

What are some things that you love right now?

You Are Blooming Flowers
You are an optimistic person by nature. In even the darkest times, you are hopeful about the future.
You feel truly blessed in life and can sometimes be overwhelmed with emotions.

You have an artist's eye. You are always looking for beauty in the mundane.
You have a good sense of aesthetics, especially when it comes to shapes and color.

Another project...

So I started another project...This is the start of a mystery sock pattern which means that you only get a little bit of the pattern at a time. What you see above is the toe of the sock, and you can't tell but along each side it has cables. Add this to the ever growing list of current projects that I should probably not start until something else is finished.
