Pinterest On Parade

So I am sure everyone by now knows about Pinterest? If not then where have you been?
What a great & addicting website for "crafty's" like myself! So at the beginning of the year one of my great friends decided to start our own little Pinterest group to have a little get together every month. What better reason to get with your girlfriends for a few hours on the weekend, right?

So we have had 2 so far, and here is how we run them. We rotate the "host" for the month and that person is in charge of providing the "craft" it can be anything that obviously can be finished in just a few hours.

Then, each person brings a dish, dip, or dessert of a creative recipe for us all to "munch" on during craft time. It has been so much fun! I have been very bad at taking pictures at these function because I am all wrapped up in the fun. :)

Here was my craft from Jan. We did 2 framed pieces.
     1) Was a Valentine themed...dry erase board for our hubby's
     2) Was an chipboard initial frame

I did manage to take a picture of the dessert I took in Jan. as well.
Mini Cheesecakes from HERE
     They did fall a little because I had to rush the cooling time, but still tasted great!

For February we did a painted canvas of our child's birth info. We used stickers, paint, and spray paint. The paint bled under the stickers a little bit, but I like that it gives it that kind of weathered look.

Next month I am hosting the party and still thinking of what craft we will do. I have a few ideas :)

C & C Chic (Winter Wear)

Since I have pretty much been living in an outfit similar to this for the last 2 weeks I thought I would share it with you all. Its a great look for work and for running around town doing errands, ect. Here are the must haves....

I created this on Polyvore, and with the exception of the coat, ear rings, and maybe the watch..... I would actually buy the rest, it is all reasonably priced.

1) Skinny Jeans or True Leggings (not see through tights)
2) A Button Down Shirt
3) Scarf
4) Riding Boots  w/Boot Socks
5) Pea Coat
6) Cross Body Bag
**I am diggin' gold jewelry right now :)

We were "Mint" to be friends

Even though I was traveling this week, we managed to get Colton's Valentines goodies done for school. His favorite color is green and when I saw this awesome printable from The Celebration Shoppe I knew we had to do it!

I hope you all had a Great Valentines Day!

Year 2013-Do Over

For those that know me I had started off 2013 with a bang.....Motivated...Inspired...Focused

Then on Jan 10th my world came crashing down! Now with daddy gone, I know he would want me to pick up and "keep truckin". Things will never be the same in my life, but I must find a way to move on.  I want to make him proud, so with that I declare officially declare this a "Do Over!" Thank you to all of my family and friends for the most awesome support system anyone could ask for, I love you all!

What better way to get on track and stay focused than with an inspiration board. Getting back to the basics of what makes me happy. I am a very visual person, so I have one of these in my office, right above my computer, and one taped to my mirror. I find that I kind of meditate while blow drying my hair, so on the mirror is a good place for me to visualize these things and make them happen!

Okay 2013........BRING IT!
Who's with me?
Go here to makes yours!
