I guess this would go a lot faster if I did more than one photo on a page but that it just not how I roll. I have a hard time making more than one photo look good so on I go. Here are some more pages for the never ending Lithuania trip book. It is a goal of mine to have it finished this year, and I am almost done so it isn't as bad as I am making it out to be! hehe
So here are two more finished pages! Off to make some more now, hope you have a great week!
So when we were out in California visiting family, my Aunt gave us a spinning wheel. She got it from a friend but didn't think she would use it, so she gave it to us. We were very excited to try it out once we got home but we were having trouble getting it to work. So today my Mom and I took it out to a yarn store to get some help. Turns out it was more of an operator error thing.
So I have been spinning up a storm tonight!
Here is my first attempt. It didn't go as planned but these things take time.
My second attempt went a whole lot better.
Now I can get yarn that is close to all one size. And the cat really likes this new hobby too! Hehe
The Renegade Craft Fair was in town over the weekend. We headed downtown on Sunday to check it out for the first time. The weather was lovely and we saw a lot of great artists showcasing their goods. I even picked up a few things that I love and got some great ideas of things I want to make now.
I got some fun prints from Jill M. Connor, you can find her great stuff here.
Getting back to blogging after a week away is hard so I figured I would start out with some things that I am loving right now.
1. I am loving the new song and video from Kings of Leon, I can't wait until I can buy it!
2. We went to the Renegade Craft Fair yesterday and it was awesome, I will do a post on that tomorrow including some fun stuff that I bought.
3. The Studio Calico September kit, the colors are wonderful and there are still some left, I highly recommend it.
4. Pumpkin Spice Lattes and cooler weather. I think that we should have Fall until it is Spring and skip that whole messy Winter thing.
5. The entire Mumford & Sons album, I can't stop listening to it. I saw them at Lollapalooza in August and fell in love.
6. My friend Jen just created another fabulous shawl pattern that I can't wait to knit. See it here. She is also doing a sock yarn club, her yarn is wonderful and this is something you won't want to miss!
I just realized that the calendar I have hanging by my desk is wrong. It says September 2010, but it says that today is the 3rd. This caused a few moments of confusion on my part as to what day it actually is, but now that I have it all figured out, all is good! haha
Anyway, on to the real reason for this post, I want to share a layout I made that I am in love with.
I used the Studio Calico August kit Summer Camp for this layout, the kit is one of my favorites I think. I found this picture when I was going through the CD of pictures on of the chaperons took when we were in Germany. I didn't remember this moment at all, but I am so glad that I have a picture of it.
As soon as I saw the picture, I knew I had to do a layout with it, mainly to share the journaling that I had in mind. I really need to do that more often on my layouts!
I know I say this every month, but I can't believe it is September already. This year is going by far too fast, I can hardly keep up.
I decided yesterday to sign up for Shimelle's class Learn Something New Every Day because I really wanted to take a class this month and I kept seeing everyone's great album covers around the web so I decided to join in too!
So last night I created my album cover using some supplies that I had on hand. Here is what mine looks like:
The album is 6x6, I hope that this is a good size for this project, I guess we will see! I also spent some time this morning going through my supplies and picked out things to put inside the album.
I can't wait to learn new things this month, I will try really hard to share these things here on the blog!
