Dinner Menu

Well, here is one of the three projects I've been working on for my friends, cousins wedding. I will have the cookie tags to post later and the menu's probably tomorrow or Thursday. This was one BIG project, but I enjoyed it because it gave me experience. Although I noticed when I created things on my own, it turned out better than trying to copy an idea from Stampin Up's idea book. I usually grab ideas from several places and clump them into my own, as did with this menu. I used vellum on top of Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla cardstock. Not sure if you can notice in the pic, but there is a tad of glitter in the two stamped images at the bottom.

I sure do love to be busy and I betcha ya'll thought I curled up in a corner somewhere lol. I was hoping to at least show you the menu's I am making for a wedding, but a friend of mine borrowed my small hold punch and I can't get a hold of her. So...instead I will share with you what I made at my friends Dawn's Stamp Camp since I don't think I shared with you what I made last time :( We made two cards, a bag and a post it note holder (this time). The one with the ribbon around it was referred as a slip knot (I think) and boy was that a fun challenge. I loved making that card cuz we used a really cool technique with plastic wrap. You just bunch it up, dab it on your ink pad, then onto your paper. It's so easy and unique. I loved the bag because she made up 4 white and milk chocolate dipped pretzel rods. Only problem is only 3 made it into the bag lol OOPS! shhhh The post it note holder was my FAVORITE! It was easy, but of course she has the spots that needed to be scored already done. Anyhow, not I'm behind on laundry, if anybody would care to join me come on over :D I'm hoping to get more stuff posted tomorrow.

Here We go again....

Ok, I need to start thinking of another excuse as to why I haven't blogged. I'm too busy is getting old and lame. But seriously...I LOVE to be busy. So I get involved in all kinds of stuff. Well I'm learning, the hard way, that with a child you can't be doing that. So I've decided that since all the stuff I do can be put into one, that's what I'm doin! Right now I'm working on a project for a friends cousin doing her wedding programs. She invited 400 people! So far I'm only doin 300 until she gets more rsvp's. PLUS she wants 30 dinner menu's for her tables to start. Yes it's alot, however, it's really gone smoothly :D I will certainly post the final outcome soon. Along with other little things I've done along the way. MAYBE I can even put that on my priority list for tomorrow :D. Ok...I'm off to finish watching The Biggest Loser finale WOO HOO GO ALY!

I just nearly wrote a book, got an error message and lost it all! AAAAAAHHHHHHHH I need another coffee! Ok, so I was rambling about not posting cuz I'm too lazy to take pics of my work from Dawn's Stamp Camp. And how I decided to copy off of her and post about my favorite color. Welp, I can't pick just ONE color. I love pink, brown and purple, but Purple best describes me so I decided to pick that one. Anyhow, I gotta go to bed before I choke somebody now lol

What Your Favorite Color Purple Says About You:

Intuitive --- Seeking --- Creative

Kind --- Self-Sacrificing --- Growth Oriented

Strong --- Very Wise --- Rare
