Cute Cards

First off, I would like to wish my brother, Jim, a BIG happy birthday. Today is his 30th!!! Tonight we are going to his house for supper to celebrate the special occasion :) I thought I would show you all the card I'm giving him. He's a big fisherman, so I thought I'd play that up.

Then, after we get done there, we also have a couples' shower for a great friend of mine. She will be here from Colorado, so it will be so great to see her :) I also made a cute little card for her and her fiance as well that I thought I would share.

So, Jesse and I have a pretty eventful evening to look forward to. Good time with family and doesn't get any better than that :)

Beauty All Around Us!

It is so great to finally have nice weather here in Iowa for a few days. With all the rain and storms we've been having, it has made me realize how much I love getting outside in the beautiful weather. On my jog this morning, I started to look around and notice all the beauty right in front of me. Everywhere I looked there were beautiful flowers. I also saw some pretty wild cats and a deer. Nature is so great! And the jog alone is just so peaceful in the country :)

After I got back from my jog, I knew I wanted to get some pictures of the pretty flowers I had seen. I decided to get a little more exercise and take my dog for a walk to see the flowers. I thought I'd share them with you as well :)

These may just be weeds to some, but this quote came to my mind the whole time I was out today: "May all your weeds be wildflowers!" So next time you have the opportunity to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather, take time to notice all the wonderful things around you...and don't forget to grab that camera!

June-Featured EtsyBlogger

June's featured EtsyBlogger is AliciaMae. She is a very ambitions crafter with THREE etsy stores, a blog, and a website. I wish I had time to do as much as she is able to accomplish!

I have chosen 1 favorite from each of her stores.

First, from her store:

With everyone so Eco-friendly here lately, I think this necklace is a good way to make your statement :)

Next, from her store:

I love this print because the red is so pretty against the dead of winter. Sometimes we need this little bit of beauty to get us through the winter months :)

And lastly, her store:

I chose these beads as a favorite because I can totally see them on a scrapbook page. I'm all about looking "outside the box" for scrapbook supplies and I think these would look so cool hand-sewn on a page :)

Also, don't forget to check out her blog:

and her website:

Now, don't you agree that her ambition is one to strive for :)

School's Out For Summer!!!! Crafting-Here I Come :)

I finished up my final yesterday for my fourth MBA class!! It wasn't too bad, but I'm sure glad to be done. Now I'm taking a break for the summer. These classes just get harder and harder! I think I deserve a break...and now I'll have more time to my crafting :) Life really does get busy, doesn't it! With working full time, taking classes and running my Etsy shop, that doesn't leave much time for other things in good old fashioned relaxing! But now that classes are done, I'm going to take some of that time and relax. I love to go canoeing, jog outside in the warm sun, play with my dog, and just hangout in the shed with my boyfriend :) It really is a good feeling to not have one more thing on my plate right now! I have SO many ideas I'd like to start on and now that I'll have more time, I might actually get them done :) So here's to enjoying the warm weather, more crafting, and more relaxing! Now get out there and enjoy life :)
