As all of you know, I have the best job in the world!
It has become more fun with the addition of our fabric department.  We have the absolute prettiest fabric selection ever, and the best sewing classes.  I recently took the Sew-N-Go and it was "sew" fun!

Here's the deal:  It is $18 for the class, every first and third Tuesday 11am-3pm-ish.  You come, pick a kit off the counter, and have a seat.  When class starts, they show a sample of the project and hand out the pattern.  Yes you heard right, supplies and pattern are included, and you sign up "blind" not knowing what the project is.  Here was my first class: 

The tote was so cute, I had to make 3. I mean I do have 3 girls, I had no other choice right? The fabulous teachers have extra kits for sale, and not to brag too much, I got all 3 done in class!  This tote can be made any size determined by the size of squares you use.  I might just start cutting squares out of my fabric scraps and sew them together when I have enough.  I'm inspired, can't wait till next time!

Been Busy

I have been so busy lately, but haven't we all?  Celeste is playing both volleyball and fall softball, so we have a sport to go to everyday (but Sunday), and some days two! Whew!

But in my "spare time" I have been editing Alexa's Europe pictures.  I first weeded the 1300+ down to 810.  Now comes the editing.  Her camera was not so good, so all her pictures have a slightly overcast look, even on days that were bright and sunny.

Here are some samples of her pictures, both before and after:

And fun effects:

And a few more pretty shots:
