this weekend...

This weekend we'll be busy gathering rose petals in our painting tin just to throw them in the air and pick them up again. And again. And again.
Or dancing around the living room with Avery to my new favorite album by Mindy Gledhill (who will be at Spark!)
Or laughing at my silly girls who love each other one second & the next second I'm prying them apart.
Or eating frozen Junior Mints and diecutting like crazy for my online class kits. (Almost ready to send out.)
Or I would love to scrapbook with my Studio Calico kit I got in the mail today. (It's SO cute!!)
At some point, I'll lay down & listen to Collin play the piano & sing 'run' while the baby in my tummy does somersaults and kicks like she's the next karate kid.

Any fun plans? Have a delightful weekend!

PS putting together a Shades of Summer update. Please email me your picture if you've had the sunglasses to shadesofsummer@gmail.com. Thanks. And please keep them moving along...!

That's like tons of fun! Scrapbooking + rose petals are oh so wonderful! And, I assume, having a baby kicking in your tummy is an amazing feeling.

Have a lovely weekend.

HewwiyBelle, I attempted to get some shots with the petals but they didn't turn out. I will have to try again. :)

I love how nicely your pictures turn out! Do you use a certain editing program for the pictures?

So is Shades of Summer over already? Thats a bummer if it is because I have been checking my box all summer long in anticipation of those groovy glasses. Oh well, maybe Alaska is just too far away.


I really do love your blog, though.

Love how your writing so is descriptive, I can just see you with your sweet girls.

I'm spending time with my five kiddos, and watching my 17 month old discover the joys and frustrations of trying to talk (and often succeeding!). I'll see if I can avoid being too task-oriented, trying to get so much done before the work/school week hits again and missing all those magic moments.

Oh, and thanks for posting the PixelPop blog and website. Collin is one talented dude. ;) Love how he captures emotion, in a take-your-breath-away kind of way.

I plan to organize my scrapbook room to utilize the space better. But mostly just BE. I just started back to school (teacher=me), so I'm looking forward to taking pictures of my little girlies.

My nephew is getting baptized this weekend so I'm finishing his quilt (it's almost done) - I know total procrastinator! :)

I hope to see pics of the rose petals - it sounds like a blast!

I'm hoping to crack open my Studio Calica kit too! i got the August and It's sitting on my table as I drool over it.

I'm actually working on someone's wedding pieces and making some new necklaces for the ol Etsy shop.

What a gorgeous weekend! I'm excited for continuing my birthday celebrations! We went to Bob Dylan on Tuesday and Happy Sumo will be tonight! Also thrilled for your class; my sweetie made it part of my birthday gifts after some heavy hinting. ;)
