Some inspiration

Well, I have been doing a few things here at home. I love crafting but I still don't feel completely there with all my things. A lot of my supplies are still in boxes so I am just really working with the bare essentials. Here is a little box that I made with one of Jenni Bowlin's papercrafting kits. I love this box and I may just have to give it to a special Bella come November.

Well, have a good weekend and find some time to create. I know I am.

Midwest Beauty

One of the things I kept saying over and over to DH when we were coming back is how much I missed the green of the Midwest. I didn't know I would miss it as much as I did, but I started feeling more and more alive the greener the scenery got. Now that I am back in the middle of all the green, I just love it. The smell of freshly mown grass. The clean smell of the rain. the dew sparkling like diamonds on the grass in the morning. I am just over taken by all the green. I drive down roads that feel like I am going through emerald tunnels. The shade from the trees is a cool touch to my soul. I feel more alive now.

Friendly Neighborhood Critter

There I was, sitting on the couch, watching television, when I hear this weird chattering going on. I look out our patio door and there it was. A squirrel yelling at something. It was the cutest thing. He stayed out there talking for a while. It's been a long time since I have seen a squirrel. I only got to see them when I came back to visit my folks. Now I get to see them everyday.

I'm Treating Myself

to a retreat. YEAH!!!

I have been wanting to go to a weekend retreat for a VERY long time. Every time one comes around that really interests me, something comes up or I don't want to spend that kind of money or some other excuse so I feel bad even thinking about attending. The whole guilt mentality here.

So, I found out that Silverbella was going on again in Omaha, NE. How cool is that. I am only an hour away from this wonderful event. I have heard so many great things about this paper arts event that I wanted to find out how much and if there was still room. EUREKA! There was room, but crap can I have the money rounded up to go to this? So, I talked to my mom about it and told her how I always wanted to go to a weekend like this, but I always talk myself out of it. She decided she would pay half for my birthday since it's in December. Close enough :)

I am signed up and getting involved in the swaps and am so excited to be a part of this. I can't wait to share with you everything that comes out of this.

Well, I goofed

I was really going to try and start blogging everyday but I got sucked into watching Dexter the series this weekend with my DH. We went and rented the first season at Blockbuster and we were up until 3 am Saturday watching it. It's a very interesting series and I got sucked right in, so did DH. It is a great thriller, mystery and I don't know what else. The third season starts soon, so we want to catch up on the first two seasons.

This weekend was a very nice, relaxing weekend with my DH. I hope you all had a good long weekend. September is one of my very favorite times of year. Summer is leaving, fall is on it's way. Our anniversary is this month. I love seeing all the trees starting to change colors. It's just a beautiful time. Well, have a great day and take care everyone!
