My DH and i went away this past weekend for our anniversary. We stayed in the oh so cute cabin in the woods. When i looked out every window all i could see was green! Trees and sky, OH MY! how lovely. down the hill from us was a playground which we explored on one of our walks...we had to check it out in case we ever come back with the kids, right?
It was a really wonderful weekend. No phone, no TV, no computer! totally unplugged except for out ipods and mine was on Jane Austen all weekend. Lots of time together..and the sounds of nature!
I felt just like Snow White in the woods...except i didn't have any dwarfs to care for or to bring me jewels from the mine. I bet it is beautiful here in the fall and the fireplace would certainly come in handy then! nothing like a fire in a cabin. I just enjoyed being away from my life for a few days.
My son was concerned that there was not a TV and my daughter worried that there might be bears in the forest! I worried that something would happen and someone would call us! lol.
hope you all had a great weekend...i sure did!

Here is the other card we made at my friend's SU! party. isn't it cute???
I have been working on Mother's day cards...they are just moving slowly and i have sort of been in a funk lately. Moving slowly. Sorta depressed about nothing in general. I am going out of town this weekend with DH to celebrate our 9th anniversary! I will give you more on that later in the week. we are staying at the cutest place! Also for Mother's day, i am getting a flower garden along my fence in the back yard! I have been starting to collect the plants for that and am really looking forward to it!

Aloha! We had a Luau this weekend and it was COLD! GAH! we planned it early in the "spring" so that we wouldn't be sweltering in the Alabama heat..but a cold snap hit us and we spent most of the evening inside! It was a lot of fun and i just wanted to share this picture with you!
next i have this card to share. It is not my design, and i really do not know who to credit for it. We made it at my SU! party so i am not sure if it was the original design of our "dealer" Sharla Foy, or if it was CASED from somewhere. I just thought it was cute and wanted to share. I have several cards that i will be posting in the next few day that are from our SU! parties and one "crafty" thing we did at a girlz night. I am starting to get to some serious work on my DD 's Clown party so i will have some things to show for that before too much longer. Have a great week!

i am playing catch up here i guess. no blogs for a while and now several in a few days! oh well, feast or famine! if you'd like to be able to see these review images larger, you can click on the picture and it will open it up larger for you. enjoy our monthly highlights!
Originally, i had put sea water in mine too..but it started getting icky! that's no fun, so i emptied the contents into a coffee filter and baked it in the oven for a while to dry it out. Once i reloaded my bottle, one of my darling children thought it could still be shaken apparently, so it is a bit tousled. Still a fun remembrance. I think we shall fill bottles every year with treasures from out trips to save. How fun!
if anyone has any ideas on how to keep sea water "fresh" or from growing things in a bottle, please let me know!
