God Bless America

I was going to wait until next week to make this live in the shoppe, but I decided to put it in today for the last day of the Sizzling Summer sale. So it's 35% until tomorrow! This is more like a mini-kit: God Bless America

Little Monkeys

I was up early this morning because I wanted to get some things done before my hair appointment at 10:00. Who would have thought I would be up at 5:30 am and working on a scrapbook page? I was too tired to focus on anything else. And then I was hitting the pavement running by 6:30 am. Whew! By the time 10:00 am rolled around I felt like it should have been later because I was up early. I didn't sleep so well last night, so a nap is sounding mighty good right about now. But before I nap or do anything else, I wanted to share another page I created using the Summertime Kit. I'm *really* enjoying this kit!

I also used Christine Newman's (List Girl Designs) Rays All Around template...which is also 35% off until Saturday!

Sweet Isaac

We just got back from seeing Toy Story 3! It was AWESOME!!! We laughed so hard we were practically crying! I'm just amazed at the animation in that film! I appreciate those kinds of things more now that I'm into digi. It's definitely a must-see!

Before I shut the computer down for the night, I thought I would post one more thing for today (that's 3 in one day!). This was the page I had in mind after I posted the previous post. I imagined the clothesline with letters spelling something. And what a perfect word/name to spell than my precious nephew, Isaac. He seriously melts my heart!

Sunshine...wouldn't that be nice for today? I really am not complaining though because I love rain! (Really, I do!) We've had a really beautiful spring/summer season so far...even for rainy Ketchikan. Ok, enough about the weather!

I just created this page. I saw it in my mind and I LOVED using my own designs to create this page. For a long time I never understood why "flags" were so popular, but now I'm starting to get it. I have this other idea for the clothesline in my Summertime Kit. I just have to do it! Maybe after I blog this!

This page really made me miss my little sister Katie. Isn't she hilarious! We took a lot of pictures together when I was in Michigan. (*blowing kisses to Katie*) I journal on this page yet. I'll probably do that another time.

Ipod "sock"

Hello! Long time, no blog! How are you doing? I hope you are doing well! I thought I would share a picture of a cute little knitting project I completed last ipod "sock". I just posted this project on The pattern came from here (it's a free Ravelry download, so you have to have an account through Ravelry first). It's free! (Both the pattern and account) I really like my new ipod nano! I mainly wanted it for when I run; it's so nice to have that motivation while running!

I haven't scrapped in probably a month now. I haven't been in the mood. I've been creative, but in other ways, like creating digital kits and knitting. I even made two cards today! I'm looking at one of them right now. Today I was thinking about stamping/card-making and I think what happened was that I got burned out on it. I LOVED being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, but after awhile it was mostly the amazing and wonderful women who came to my workshops that made it so completely awesome! They inspired me so much! I was just telling Quent how much I miss those ladies and how it was just so wonderful to spend time with them!! I can't wait to see some of them soon!! Anyway, so I was thinking about how now I'm finally getting back into card-making again, but this time it's without the pressure of trying to figure out what new techniques I can show my customers. It was always fun, but now this is like carefree fun! I'm getting really excited about seeing the new Stampin' Up! catalog, too!

Have a great rest of your day!

Baby Boy Hat

My friend Janae had her little boy (Owen Zander) on April 28th. He was 9 lb 14 oz! I couldn't get over how big he was! I wanted to knit something for him so I asked Janae what she would really like me to knit. She decided on a hat and I knew exactly what kind of yarn I wanted to use for the project. I had been eyeing this yarn at The Point for some time. There are all sorts of colors to choose from, but because Janae was really into a turquoise-blue at the time and since this was for a boy, I stuck with that shade of blue. It's a super simple pattern! I thought the hat turned out adorable and soft! I love soft!

I found the PDF pattern here.

The yarn color: Playful 143

For awhile I've been wanting to make my own tags for gifting so the giftee (is that a word?) can have the wash/care instructions, plus it just makes it all the more personalized.

Also wanted to let you know that I have a account. I'm soaring2him there.

Have you checked out pages 39 and 45 of the July/August 2010 Creating Keepsakes magazine? I'm so excited about having my pages published in CK! Quent opened up to this page right away when he opened the magazine. It feels surreal to see them in there! Somebody pinch me! Ha! I'm so thankful!
