If I Ever Visit Delaware....

Since this is strong possibility in the near future for me.... I thought it might be fun to repeat this past post!

My brother Tom and I talked about checking out the Rehoboth Beach area of Delaware....

And nearby and equally quaint looking towns Lewes, that is apparently the first town in the first state of the US:

And Dewey Beach:

It's about 3.5 hours away from where my brother and sister-in-law are living for a few more weeks!

The Rohoboth Beach boardwalk looks like fun:

Maybe a state park:

And, of course, the beach!

As for food...

Maybe a lobster roll at FINS?

Or some beer taste testing at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery?

Or maybe some doughnuts from Fractured Prune?

Maybe wrap up all the fun with some sales tax-free shopping at the outlets?

Wonder if we will end up doing all or any of this, but I'm definitely looking forward to checking out Delaware!

Have you ever been?  Anything we should check out?!

Day in the Life: Just an Average Saturday

I thought it would be fun to capture the average weekend around here when Brian is off working on something, so here goes!

 All photos taken with my iPhone 4S, no processing.  Used the Pic Stitch app for collages and the Beautiful Mess app to add text & doodling!

Today I Am...

Reading: Planning on reading Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In and Dan Brown's Inferno when I hop on a plane flight to visit my brother soon. :)

Listening to: #Beautiful by Mariah Carey feat. Miguel

Obsessed with:
**Food = greek yogurt in any flavor, string cheese, Nut Thins in Cheddar Cheese, shrimp
**Crafts = mostly quilting projects right now, but itching to make some cards too!
**TV Time wasters (most of which just ended for the summer) = Grey's Anatomy, Amazing Race, Survivor, Elementary, CSI, Law & Order: SVU, NCIS, NCIS: LA
**House = picking an accent paint color for our kitchen (more about that later this week!)

Thinking about: My upcoming trip east to visit my brother and sister-in-law!

Planning: What to pack.... :)

Dreaming of: What to do this summer!

Enjoying: Time spent with Brian hanging out watching TV or movies.

Vowing to: Finish Amy's quilt, Brian's quilt and get Madeline's in the mail to Sarah!

Working on: Getting everything cleaned up and put away before I leave for Pennsylvania.

Excited about: Traveling and spending time with Tom & Amy soon!

Favorite food I made in the last month: I haven't made much food this month, so I'm going to go with my most recent culinary success, Nutella Buddies.... YUM.

Getting out and about: Closest we got to that this month aside from a trip up to visit the families and celebrate our nephew's 5th birthday, was running errands at Costco and grabbing lunch at Famous Dave's last Saturday.  It was fun :)
Things that caught my eye recently:
I love this show. Probably because of all these awesome guests!
I definitely want to master this craft... so cool!

Favorite photo from the last week:

She loves to snuggle on the couch while we watch TV in the evening... wouldn't be complete without a pillow to sleep on or a blanket to sleep under! :)

Home Decor: In Celebration of Chuck & Katie

Earlier this year, I made a cute frame-able piece of meaningful word art for my sister to give to her husband... so when she was looking for a meaningful wedding gift to give her friend Katie and her now husband Chuck this weekend, she asked for my help putting something she saw surfing the web on her cell phone & took pictures of.  We changed all the fonts, but the general setup is very similar:

And here's a close-up of it actually in the frame:

Rumor has it, the bride and groom loved it and plan to hang in in their bedroom. :)

Congratulations Chuck & Katie!

*If anyone recognizes the artwork and knows the original source, please let me know and I will be happy to link to it! :)

Five Years of Birthday Invitations

So last weekend we celebrated my favorite little mister's fifth birthday a little early....

Picture taken at Disneyland in March :)

Where does the time go?!

Every year (but his first birthday - momma did those!), I make this little man's birthday invites and I thought it would be fun to show them all in one place, so here goes!

What do you think?! :)

Featured Altered Art: Andrea's Mason Jar Pincushions

The newest addition to my new sewing desk.... isn't it cute?! :)

Another craft done when Drea visited. :)  She had seen this tutorial and had some left over fabric from this project.... so a quick trip to my pantry for some jars, break out the glue gun and some stuffing.... and here you go!

I think they turned out awesome and I can't wait to put this one to use. :)

So now that I'm finally at the end of sharing all our crafty projects, here's a recap of everything we got done in that one weekend!
All-in-all, a pretty successful crafty weekend, don't you think?! :)
