Missy's wallet

I absolutely LOVE Craftster. I find so many fabulous gift ideas there. This one goes out with props to HappyFrog, who came up with this super simple way to make a card wallet.

I made it for my friend Missy, at work. One day we went over to JoAnn's on our break and I bought a fat quarter of this fabric. She saw it an practically drooled all over it. I knew I had to make her something with it. She said the pattern on it was similar to the pattern she has on her business cards so when I saw the tutorial for this wallet I knew that's what I would make. I gave it to her on Sunday and Wednesday when a bunch of us went out after work she was already using it! Yay! :-D

Disposable Camera Swap

Here are the pics I got from Lizzle! I LOVE the city and airplane shots. They're two of my favorite things!! Plus she sent me a really cool chalkboard frame and special pens to use with it. I'd never seen one before - love it! :-D

The other day I got to hang out with my Joe. We went out to Friday's for dinner and then I took him out to Debonne Vineyards.

It was so nice and relaxing. No one was around, it was so peaceful. We just sat in the gazebo sampling some wine and talking, watching the sun set behind us. Note to Self: Their dry Riesling is heavenly. Next time bring a bottle home. :D

Since Joe is moving back home in a few days I made him a little keepsake of the evening.

Fairy Tale Creature Swap

I got my Angel package the other day! Grin

Let me say first off how awesome Red_Pooka is!! She totally spoiled me, I LOVE everything she made!! She put so much thought into all of it. Everything was tagged with descriptions of why she included each item. I got some pixie stix (yum!), a fairy stone (that I've already worn twice as a necklace), a stenciled shirt (that fits like a glove and is an amazing shade of green that goes perfectly with my green eyes!), and a knitted dragon (Smaug from The Hobbit!!), and what dragon would be complete without some dragon's treasure!!

Ok, here it all is!!

Fairy Stone:

Two Years.....

This Saturday is me and Brian's two year anniversary. I can't believe it's been that long already. It seems like just the other day that we were at 80's Night and I was waiting all night for him to give me that first kiss. :)

I think I'm gonna scrap this pic as one of his prezzies. We haven't had a picture together that hasn't been on a cell phone for MONTHS.
