As the title very obviously states, this past weekend (sunday 10th, actually) my husband and I celebrated our first year of being married!! We had a great weekend at the park with the dogs, having wine and champagne with close friends and treating ourselves to delicious foods…. yum!
We didn’t actually PLAN anything, it all just really worked out by itself and it was fantastic. Really I think we were mostly in shock that a whole year passed so quickly. I mean, really, I can still hear the music on my wedding night and can still taste the champagne/passion fruit drinks I had all night… hmmmm it was such a great day…
With all the good time we had this weekend, I didn’t think to take any snapshots of us lovebirds, BUT I did get some pretty fun pics of the girls…
this is my favorite, wrestling for the oh so desired tree branch…
And as for most of monday, I spent the day doing household chores and daydreaming about crafting (of the knitting, crocheting and sewing variety)..
oh and there was some window shopping on Pinterest too
I found this, and really, it gives doilies an entirely new look doesn’t it?? I think I will be trying this soon..

So, it’s been forever. I know. I have been readjusting to Mexico and housewife duties. And as days and weeks have just flown by I realized there is no better time than now to jump back into crafting and blogging about it. Even if I have no FO’s at the moment.
So I leave you with a short post, some pictures of WIP’s and a question… What are you all working on these days? As you will see I’ve been doing some crocheting, cross stitching (love the simplicity of it), and embroidering. Also some knitting but no pictures of it at the moment.
Happy crafting everyone!!

I have always loved fiber arts, and weaving is one I have never tried my hand at… Take a look at this quick and easy to follow tutorial of weaving on a piece of sturdy cardboard..
I defenitely planning on giving this a try! And if I find it fun and entertaining, I just might join a weaving class at my LYS.
Who out there has given this a try? How did you enjoy it? I’ll be sure to share the results of this home experiment! Happy stitching.

uff! the last few weeks have been a bit crazy with busy… mostly because i have not been at home in GDL, but flying around, making visits… one of my favorite things to do really.
at the beginning of this month i flew out to Miami for a weekend of girlfriend, wedding dress shopping fun… and it was just that… a lot of girl fun, delicious food, gossip, many mimosas and my childhood girlfriends..
i definitely needed some girl on girl time love you ladies!!
.. one week and a half later my husband and i made our way to bright and hot Las Vegas for a long weekend. we had never been before and we were just taken aback by all the bright lights, pretty casino sounds and pretty shiny things… it is definitely a city that holds its own. not really knowing our way around, we stayed at an older hotel, The Riviera, a bit up the way on the Strip… very 80′s and with its own charm, we were thankful that it was a ‘quieter’ one as hotels and casinos go in Vegas..
we also enjoyed some shows and very delicious food… sheesh, the buffets are just amazing in Vegas… for real..
ceiling at entrance lobby at the Bellagio Hotel..
yes, those are m&m’s…
After we made it back from Vegas, i left on a two day road trip near GDL with a friend, to Queretaro and Guanajuato.. two incredibly beautiful towns, full of amazing history and culture..
And now, finally, i am home for a couple of weeks before i flee again to see my best girlfriend in Minneapolis..
and back to my crafting it is.
