I know I am really slow with the updates on this, but I have been busy working on some side projects for a friend’s wedding. I will be sure to post once those are complete (and the ones that are completed are revealed to the bride at her surprise shower at the end of this month).

In the mean time, I will show you more of the “postcards” I created for my final project in my Book Art Class (which I got an A in- yay!). This is a picture heavy post- see more after the break!

Prague Vacation Remembered: Part 1 May 19, 2011

In March, Scott and I went on a vacation to Prague. This was a dream of ours and a shared goal from when we started dating nearly 4 years ago (it will be 4 years next Wednesday, May 25th!) We began saving for this trip in 2008. Then there was a wedding in San Diego in the Summer of 2009, so the Prague money went to pay for that trip. After that, we moved in December of 2009, wiping out our “apartment fund” and the rest of the “vacation fund.” We started saving again, and finally were able to go this past March. It was an incredible trip.

Inspiration for Craft Corner April 14, 2011

As I mentioned on my 30-for-30 post, one of my goals is to create storage and organization for all of my crafting supplies (sewing, embroidery, scrapbook and card making supplies mostly). It is hard enough to be creative, let alone when you are completely overwhelmed with the prospect of even finding all your supplies- let alone actually working on a project. Currently, my crafting supplies live in a 3 drawer rolly cart (without the wheels, and yes, that is the technical term) in my closet, some supplies (like my Cricut and some scrapbook supplies) live in Scott’s closet while still others reside in a basket on the top shelf of my closet or in various other places in our small bedroom. While I realize that we live in a small apartment where space is at a premium, I also think that there is usable space to convert to a storage area, as long as I make sure to consider Youk proof containers for areas he can reach as he is quite destructive. I hope then when the process of getting my crafting supplies isn’t so tedious, I might be able to work on them more as it is a hobby that I love, and yet hardly ever do because of the huge amount of time I have to invest to gather and put away the materials. Without further ado, here are some inspiration pics for my little craft corner:

I’m a bit late jumping on to the trend, but as I am turning 30 on July 14, 2012 I thought I would start by posting my 30 for 30 list with goals that can realistically be attained in the next year and 3 months. I will update this list as I cross things off!
