Boy, do those SITS gals put on a great day long boot camp....blogging boot camp. I started my blog as a journal for my daughter and a way to show off some of my handmade tutu's. I put the sewing aside when my husband deployed last year .This boot camp really helped get me inspired to tackle the tutu world again. I really recommend going to one of these conferences if you get the chance So many wonderful women with great ideas at all levels of blogging. I was a little intimidated to go.......thinking my blog is not "big" enough , organized enough or really worthy......but you know what I am SO GLAD I WENT. I now have a road map to get organized and some new people to call on if I need a little help.

Paul had a meeting in New Orleans last week and he came home with the MOTHER LOAD of bling. You can imagine the delight with the Mermaid necklace......
"No you can't wear all of these to school today Sarah...pick one......"

Last night I got to spend 4 hours at Paper Tale's taking a class from the fabulous mixed media queen Julie Haymaker Thomas and soldering goddess Terri Brush. The added bonus is I did all this with the felting princess and good friend Val. It is so fun to take classes with people who love to create.......this is my "clubbing". (yes I am a dork) I love to hear "oooo's and ahhh's" when a little crafting tips are given by the instructors......it is like the Superbowl for mixed media fans.
I have been in a creative funk and taking this class really helped shake me up a bit. This was my first time working with foam board. I was a little surprised that I was so timid with some of the different mediums....but Julie helped me tap into my "Trashy...Parisian Passion".
I am on week 2 of the Brave Girls Soul Restoration course........learning a lot about myself. ....I really recommend visiting this site......!

We had a second Christmas with my sister, mom and family in Arizona. I love having pajama mornings for the kids to hang out and play. Since we have one child I really try to have Sarah feel grounded in love and family. I have said this before but I want her to have people close to her that can help decide the flavor of my jello in the nursing home....(cherry is good)
My girlfriend (in the first picture) had herself a Big (kid less) Birthday Bash . At her party I was thrilled to finally meet another "blog friend". I LOVE meeting blog friends.....she is just as sweet and funny in person. We bowled on New Year's eve......yes.....I know......bowled! It ended up being really fun .
Family...Friends(new and old, near and far) that's what it's all about!!
Welcome 2011.......I am ready for you!!
