We are back from CHA. I went to Priceless to finish up a few of the projects for Tricia to display. Tricia and Bonnie are just as worn out as I am. But, no complaints! We had a great time. I am still working on the pictures. I'm having a problem with one of the disks from my camera. Here is the project that I will be teaching in August. See Tricia at Priceless for more details and to sign up for the class.
This is a picture of the one I made for myself. I have the worst time remembering all my passwords. But, now my problem is solved. I just keep this little book by my computer.

Another day at CHA! I was so tired last night. Sorry that I didn't post. I had another great day of project making. I saw Tim Holtz, not once, but twice. I got a picture of him too! I made a necklace at his booth. I got to make a different framed picture, a note box, business card holder and a Halloween candy box. You are going to be so excited to see the new products. I am going to have to have the Gypsy by Provo Craft. Anyone know where I can get a second job? lol

CHA is fantastic! The new product lines of the different companies are NICE. I can't wait to get my hands on some of them. I created so many make-n-takes yesterday. I know I made a scrapbook page, a tag, layered flower, candy jar, calendar, a T-shirt, and a cookbook. It makes me wonder what I can get into today. lol I forgot to bring my camera cord with me. So, no pictures until we get back. The hotel is fantastic! I went down to the lobby at 5:00 yesterday to watch the traditional march of the Peabody Ducks. They really roll out a red carpet for these ducks. Don't worry! I did get lots of pictures. I'll talk to you in the morning.

Wow, what a wild week. I have actually had a real vacation... or at least I feel like it. We took Catherine and Madison to Weeki Watchie to see the mermaids. Catherine had a little boy follow her all over the park. Her first stalker! I hate the fact that she is growing up. Sonny and I went to Steinhatchie with my brother Robby. I don't like to wear my bathing suit in front of people. But since he is family, I conceded. I had the best time scalloping. I have decided that I don't care how fat I get. I will go scalloping every year. We need a bigger boat. I am at CHA in Orlando with Tricia and Bonnie. We are having fun already.

I am working on my bedroom. Texturing and painting the walls and such. I will share pictures of the before and after when I am done. Right now my bed is in the middle of the room with everything pulled away from the walls. I took a break from my current home improvement project and went to Priceless to play for the day. I was inspired by a card made by Michele Zindorf. I used a sponge instead of my brayer and I changed the card layout. Thanks for the inspiration Michelle. Then I made a paper bag purse. These are really easy to make. I'm sure you have seen them all over Splitcoaststampers. I made one more card using some of the new stamps that Tricia has at Priceless. I used Stampin' Up's Rich Razzleberry ink. Gotta love those owls!

I saw this on a blog this morning and thought it was super cute. Then I realized that I have all the supplies needed to do it. I don't think mine turned out quite as good as the one I saw, but I'm happy with it. I used the Sizzix Flower, Daisies #2. Cut three of each size flower and layer on a scalloped circle cut with Nestabilities.

Good Morning, I'm back from a wonderful two days at Debbie's place in Crystal River. We had a great time fishing, talking, playing games and of course, shopping. I have a nice tan for show and tell! lol I haven't had time to even look at the pictures, but I will share them ASAP. I cleaned house all day yesterday. I hadn't done anything around here in weeks. I have had a very active summer. I was also feeling just a little guilty for the attempt I made on jump starting our economy while out shopping. I went to a friends house to stamp last night. We had a great time and another friend from Jacksonville came down to join us.

Happy 4th of July! I spent the day at a family reunion on the Rainbow River. There were many activities to participate in this year. Paddle boat, water volleyball, cork ball, horseshoes, and the annual float down the Rainbow River. The food was fantastic as usual. The men fry the fish and hush puppies and the women pull together all the fixin's. It's a wonderful time to come together and catch up on each of our lives.
