My Inspiration

Daniel is definitely one of the biggest inspirations in my life. He always has such beautiful and inspiring images. It makes me want to create something with color.

You should really click on the link below the images so you can see them larger and better detailed....blogger just does not do the images justice. If you don't you might regret it....
So I just saw these for the first time the other day and I was blown away. He never stops amazing me with how much talent he has. So glad to have such a wonderful person in my life.

Thanks Daniel for always inspiring me to be artistic.

Scrapbooking!!!



Well, actually it was card making, but I think it's still considered scrapbooking since you use the same supplies.
Anyways my mom held a Stampin Up card making party at our house this last weekend. Which means I have to go, but I'm not complaining because it's super fun & I learn a lot. We're also super lucky because we know the instructor, which just so happens to be my little sisters Aunt Trisha. She has her own blog called My Little Creative Corner if you want to take a look at the beautiful things she makes.

We had a lot of fun and a lot of friends & neighbors came to join in the festivities.

The above picture is of my little sisters friend (and our next-door neighbor) with her Grandma and I found out some really interesting things about this grandma of hers.

1. She has an RV (which I really think is awesome, but Daniel and I really just want a camper shell for his truck or something tiny like this because we would rather camp more, but that's just our preference now)

2. This is the big reason why I wish I could be her...she has been driving around the U.S. (with her husband) and living in the RV since 2001!!!!

They have a blog that has all of their trips from 2001-present. It's called Gerry and Terry. If I recall correctly, I think she said that they have been to 49 states so far. So cool.

I wish I could do that right this moment. My biggest dream is to do something like this, but before I retire...only because I'd like to be extremely active & you just can't do the same things when you're older (or at least I don't think I will be able to...). I can't even explain how much Daniel and I have been dreaming of seeing all of the U.S. There is so much beauty and wonderful sights to see in this place we call America and I want to explore it all. I know a lot of people will think I am crazy, but I'd much rather see all of the U.S. before I venture out...haha, it is crazy!

Of course you need $$$$ to do this sort of thing, which I don't right now, so I'll work really hard and get a good education and maybe one day Daniel and I could do something like this.... but who really knows where life is going to take you.

So we return to our card making fun-tivities & here are the masterpieces we crafted.

Sooo Cute & easy.

It makes me want to put together a scrapbook, but I'm lazy...and school started...so I'm lazy/busy...ughhhhhh.

OH! And I am sure we will have one of these parties again, so if you weren't invited or you were busy, just let me know that you'd love to be there...for the FREE fun. Unless of course you purchase something out of their catalog, then it's not free....sorry.
