Happy Wednesday everyone! We are half way to another wonderful weekend and here I am posting about last weekend. I really planned on doing a post yesterday but the day managed to get away from me somehow.
We had such a great weekend. DH was gone most of last week so we stayed home all weekend and just relaxed and spent time together as a family. I have to say, as much as I enjoy watching the girls compete and taking them to different places on the weekends, I really do enjoy these times at home too.
Right before we moved last year, L was involved in a pioneer unit at school. They had to research different aspects of pioneer life and then do a project. Her paper and project was "Soap Making". I never realized how much time and energy was put into making soap. Thankfully we did not have to make the soap the old fashion way but instead found a kit at Hobby Lobby. That was the beginning of a new hobby for L. She just loves making soap and pulls the kit out from time to time.
She made these for all of her gymnastics coaches.
We also had an intense game of Sorry. Can you believe I was the first one to get all of my pieces either in home or the safety zone and I still ended up coming in third! That darn number 1 eluded me for way too long! LOL
We had another gorgeous inspiration photo over at Emma's Paperie this last week. Truthfully, when I looked at the photo, I was not completely sure what colors I wanted to play off of. They are not usually the colors I am drawn to for projects. But after I started digging through my paper and pulling out stuff that worked with that photo, everything started to come together. This winter goody jar is completely inspired by the very talented Linda Albrecht. Her use of glitter is amazing.
You can find a complete list of supplies and see the photo here.
There is also a new challenge up at Challenge Me Happy this week! We were challenged to create a layout using the word NEW in the title. Please come along and play. There is a fabulous kit from Little Yellow House to be won!
Have a wonderful week everyone!!!!
