Happy Birthday to Me

Just a few pics from my birthday. Can you say "workshop on the go"! It's a rolling craft tote from the Paper Studio - complete with raised handle and wheels and lots of goodie compartments - thanks Mom! Also got a really nice camera from my hubby, but I can't take a picture of the camera with the camera so I don't have a pic of it to post! Loved the cute little chocolate cake -- mom used designer paper and stickers to decorate -- how creative! -- LOVE all my goodies!

Ladybug Workshop

We had so much fun at my mom's making ladybug cards and oohing and aawhing (sp - lol!) over all the Stampin' Up! goodies. If you'd like information on attending or hosting a workshop, let me know -- they're definitely a good time!

Making some teacher gift post-it note frames to put in the shop here at Curiosities. Saw Dawn's video ( and knew I wanted to make some too. Dawn always shares the most amazing projects!

A few more cards

Needed a couple more birthday cards for some very special people (who may see them here first). I'm just loving my Cuttlebug and bought some more 'folders' that will emboss really pretty borders. Thought they turned out so cute!

Celebrating July 4

We always have such a good time celebrating July 4. It usually starts out with enjoying the parade on the square in Granbury, Texas -- they really put on a great one. The heat this year though, was almost unbearable -- can you say "yes, I'll pay big money for water!" Anyway, after the parade we headed out that afternoon to visit with our friends at the annual Krueger celebration - complete with swimming, eating, visiting, eating, fireworks, and oh yeah - more eating! What a good time to be able to catch up with our friends and family. Tripp absolutely loves the water - and really loved his blueberry slushy too!
