Sunday Sketch

Another Studio Calico Sunday Sketch. I squeezed this one in over the past two nights. It is really hard to scrapbook when there are 4 HOURS of American Idol to watch. Really not liking Ellen as the new judge, she really doesn't know what she is talking about. I could judge as good as her. If she says "You were great" again I a might just stop watching :)

Scrapbooking Overload

I got a little bit of girl time this weekend. I went with Wendy and Melinda to Archivers on Saturday night. I didn't have a project to work on so I got 10 yes 10 layouts done!!! Sweet treat is based on Studio Calico Sunday Sketch, made with my February kit.
A CKC STL kit slowly using them up before the new convention in April.
An original... but I did scraplift a little, getting the general layout from another page.

Ditto (I love this new line from American Crafts - Dear Lizzy.)
Made with an Archivers scrap pack from a previous crop.
Another CKC STL kit.

We also celebrated Megan Schmidt's 1st birthday in Columbia. See Ann's blog for all the fun photos.

More Pre Photos

I have added a few photos lately and thought I would share.

One of the biggest erection I have ever sold (he he). This is Lindenwood University's Student Activity Center yesterday. It is always fun to visit a jobsite and see something you bid over a year ago in the air. Congrats to my shop for fabricating all those pieces, they did a great job.
Crane piece being lifted in the air. (The dorm in the background... I built that too!)
V-day flowers my hubby surprised me with (we agreed NOT to get each other anything).
My devil children. They looked possesed with the glowing eyes.
A Fun Friday with Ashley, we stopped by The Whittle Shortline Railroad store to let her play with all the trains.

Hope you enjoyed a little corner of my life!


Just a quick post of a layout I did last night.

Based on a Sunday sketch at Studio Calico. Supplies came from my February Studio Calico kit.

Love this photo of Ashley at the Lake and loving my February kit... I hope to use it on my next few layouts.

Wacky World

This weekend we traveled to Springfield, MO to Dave's parents mainly for the Daytona 500, NASCAR's first race of the season. It is typically a boy weekend so the girls and kids have to find their own fun. Saturday morning we took the kids (Ashley, Aidan and Kaitlin) to Wacky World. It was a warehouse with a bunch of inflatables set up. The kids loved it. At first we had to kinda help them get through some of the obstacles but they soon figured it all out and they were all over the place. It was not hard getting any of them to nap after a fun filled morning!

The rest of the weekend mainly revolved around food. Dinner at the club, V day party at the Weaver house, the fryer at the Daytona party and we even had a couple of Pioneer Woman's dishes. The Cinnamon Rolls are to die for and the Blueberry Cobbler is awesome too.

We left town after the race (which was the longest ever!) in the middle of the blizzard. Since my husband had a large time at the party I was elected to drive. It was horrible! When you see headlights coming towards you on the highway it is no fun. The ABS brakes saved my butt a few times. Dave finally took over when we claimed I couldn't even see where the road was (I couldn't). Of course after Dave driving about 5 minutes we got ahead of the storm and made it back to St. Louis in one piece.

Saturday night our little family of three went Bowling. It was Ashley's first time. David or I helped her the first few times but after that she was all about doing it herself. Most of the time she would cross the fowl line and the ball would roll sllllllooooowwwwwlllllyyy down the lane. She did great and I think she really really enjoyed it. She bowled a whopping 42, Dave and I both broke 100 which is pretty impressive since I can't even remember the last time we bowled. Dave won (if I didn't mention it I am sure he would criticize me for not).
I also squeezed in a little scrapbooking this weekend. The rest of the weekend was a little relaxed and of course Scott and Wendy's annual Superbowl party. I could talk about the game but lets get serious, most people only care about the commercials. I thought they were few and far between... anyone else feel this way? I did like the Bud Light and Doritos commercials, McD's with Larry Bird and the Snickers with Betty White. I thought all the Coke commercial were bad and the one with the old Chicago Bears... what was that advertising??? I need to find a website with all the commercials because I heard we (tax payers) paid $2.5mil for a Census commercial, NICE!

Okie Dokie Heart-a-chokie

Ashley says it over and over, and it is quite funny. She says she learned it at school (and so it begins).

We stayed home today because Ashley is feeling under the weather. She has a really low fever and a nasty cough from drainage. I hope she is feeling better tomorrow because it is hard to squeeze in work when you are home with an almost 4 year old.

A new layout that I did Monday night based on the Studio Calico weekly Blog sketch.

Our weekend

Ah Ha! I cleaned off my mother in laws memory card this weekend (see post below about getting photos from others) and actually have some photos from the weekend!
Ashley and my niece Kaitlin with pig tails. So cute!
A photo taken looking down the cove towards the main channel.
The girls playing in the snow. Ashley was making a snow angel.

P.S. Ann did you mean to leave Megan's toy at the Lake? Ashley protected it all weekend... Don't play with Megan's toy, This is Megan's toy... on and on.


I feel like this blog has gone to Scrapbooking. My problem is I hardly ever take photos, and I feel like I need photos to blog about my events. For instance this weekend we were at the Lake. It was nice and quite and we got lots of snow. Ashley had a blast... did I take any photos? Nope. It was my father in laws birthday...did I take any photos? Nope but the cake was real good. I have my priorities all messed up (and my waist line shows the three pieces of cake I had this weekend). I get photos from my friends and family who love to take pictures and that is what I scrap with. Love ya all you photographing friends.

I did throw together this layout last night. Another page from CKC St. Louis Basic Grey class.
