Mini Album for Wedding & Colorado

video

Here is a paper bag mini I did for a wedding guest book. Inside each bag pocket are two large tags for the guests to sign or leave a thought that makes 16 double sided. I did this at my daughters wedding and it was a huge hit. It will be fun to see it after they put the photos in.

I used K&Company Ancestry.com paper, it matched the wedding colors the best. I have never met the bride so I didnt get to crazy or go overboard. I like how it turned out! Hope the wedding is perfect!!!



Colorado update: We ended up not getting the house that I posted the pictures of. Just didnt feel right for some reason. We think we have found what will be good for us so we shall see. I haven't seen it just video and since my husband should not quit his day job to become a video person I dont have any great pictures and the web pictures aren't that great either. I will try and see what I can come up with and post later.

Have a great Memorial Weekend!

OKAY OKAY OKAY and SOME OF LIFES LESSONS LEARNED

Everyone is telling me that I need to blog again. Well everyone as in my family maybe a few more.
Now that I am not working and done getting my house ready to sell I do have a few spare moments so I guess I will start again.

Since I am a stay at home woman now or as I like to call it a Domestic Goddess, I decided I needed to brush up on some of my homemaking skills. You know the ones like cooking and cleaning. Trish, my daughter, gave me a yummy choco chip cookie recipe made with pudding. I thought I would dust off the kitchenaid and give it a go. I was doing great....got everything room temp. Was mixing ingredients according to recipe...which I seldom follow a recipe..thinking my domestic skills are still intact. Well guess again....I added flour to the mixer...turned it on......poof flour everywhere...looked like a dust storm. I forgot to put the collar on the bowl to keep that from happening. I had white powder everywhere. Good thing no one was around to see me looking like a ghost. I do have 6 dozen yummy cookies though.

Doug, my hubby, always keeps our drink fridge stocked with the water bottles. Are we spoiled or what. Anyway, he is MIA off and on in Colorado so I decided today I would do it. He usually just brings in the 24 bottle case and plops it on the shelf and we dig out the bottle. Well the domestic goddess me decides I was going to remove the pastic wrapper and put them in the fridge nicely. You know the cardboard box underneath the bottles, I was going to use that to carry them to the fridge. Warning... If you do that you end up with 24 bottles of water all over the floor. Cardboard hugh....try cardstock. After chasing them all over the floor I now have very nice rows of water bottles in my drink fridge. There are alot of things you take for granted when your hubby is always home.

Come back later and I will update on our Colorado house purchase and a mini album I am working on.

It is good to be back blogging.....cheaper than a shrink too!!! Love ya Family
