Luky Me...

So last fall at the Beehive Bazaar I saw some pieces by this fabulous artist Jennifer Calderon and I knew exactly what I wanted. I had an idea for necklace a while ago but never got around to figuring it out exactly ~I did have my mom pick up a couple of pieces, she bought the clover in Ireland for me and she had Purple Pansy make the annzy medallion for me at Christmas. I had the scarab from a pair of earrings that I had picked up in Egypt years ago and the crystal and peals are something Jennifer added in for me. So now I have this...

I love it, I looooovie it. They say you have to make your own luck ~and I did sort of~

A Tame Weekend...

Oh so much fun traveling to Cedar City this weekend. The Utah Shakespeare festival did my favorite play this year so I tricked Aimes into a road trip and those Utah Shakespearians done good.
The setting was post war Italy and the comic delivery was amazing ~it doesn't get any funnier than that.

Sew What...

This weekend was suppose to be a "sew what" weekend or a "sew whatever I want to" weekend. It ended up however being a "cut what" weekend I did very little sewing ~so little in fact I have no finished project to show off.
I do how ever have...
12 receiving blankets
three skirts
two dresses
and one huge pile of bias binding
So this week can now be a "sew what" week with out any cutting out at all.
I'm so happy...

Because there is this Secret thing...

Okay so this weekend I went up to Seattle to hang out with LVP it was her birthday and well if you know anything about Robertson kids you know one day of every year is somehow all about them.
Here is the deal though I dragged Aimes up there with me, she had never visited the emerald city before and we thought this might be a good time. Little did we know about the Secret...
So when we reached LVP's place she asked us what we wanted to do with the weekend (the 4th was planed) she gave us a few options and when we picked the Olympic National Park we were told we made that decision because ~you guessed it LVP used the Secret on us. So then BIL used it so the weather for the game was nice so I got a sunburn. Well if they were going to use it I was going to try too so when we got on the road on Saturday I used the Secret so we would go here ~yeah we are in Forks, WA the town Stephanie Myers found on a google search to use as a setting for her now big deal book. Oh my gosh the town was small and well rainy ~so kind of what was described in the books.
Much cooler than that was the why we drove through Forks ~you have to, to get to the Hall of Mosses TrailWe also went to Rialto Beach and Hurricane Ridge both absolutely beautiful. I have never been to a park that has so much to offer and I have been to a lot of National Parks ~but more on that later.
