foamboard and glitter =

"Trashy Parisian Passion"
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......!

What do you mean it's over!!!

Don't we all have friends that "pick us up"?.....I am sure glad I do!!
The Christmas season started with a "Women's Tea"........the message came at a good time.....
"slow down......simplify.....enjoy" ....and that is what I did. (thanks for the invite)

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!!
