Our Basic Grey design team is in high gear cranking out all the products for the Summer CHA release. The new lines are AMAZING and I can't wait to use everything we're designing.
I've also done a few projects recently for Better Homes. I love working with them.
Tennis season started 2 weeks ago. This is Spencer's last year on the West High team before he heads off to college. He is partnered with Jack again and so far they are 4-1. I love watching them interact and play together. Jack's dad, David, is an amazing photographer. He took the photos above last year at their regional and state matches. Spence is the tall one, in case you didn't know. ;o)
I have yet to bring my camera because he takes such great photos.
I've also cranked up my workout schedule so I can drop a few pounds before we leave for Germany/Prague. I spend 2 hours a night on the treadmill while I watch TV. I'm toast by the time I get off. It's the only time I can commit 2 hours in a row and so far it's been working out pretty well.
Last but not least, I try to spend a few hours on the weekend working on layouts for 2 Peas. Here is one of the more recent layouts. I've been going through a lot of our old photos and trying to organize them and choose which ones to scrapbook. This photo is one of my favorites.
You can't help but have fun in a Sally Jean class.
Her art is inspired with just the right touch of whimsy and she is such a fun teacher.
Here is her fabulous tiara:
We started out the day with a little sparkle makeup provided by Laura (on my left) who made sure each of us felt and looked like a princess before we began working on our tiaras.
I definitely sat at the fun table and we were a chatty bunchh, hence my tiara did not get finished. I still have to add the wire, spinner and brooch to the top.
Here are some other tiaras. A couple of these photos were taken with my iphone, so they aren't great.
One of my table mates, Pam, is hosting a 3 day weekend in Montana where Sally Jean is coming to teach some of her fabulous classes. Pam has even offered to let you stay at her house! So if you live anywhere near Missoula Montana - I highly recommend going! I've taken two of the classes that Sally is teaching there and they are fantastic. Here are some of the projects I've made in her classes and outside her classes after she taught me how to solder.
Here is my Mr. Rogers Neighborhood - I did this 4-5 years ago:
Here is an open glass 2 story house that was a class project.
This is a necklace that I made out of found objects from the Paris Flea Markets for my friend Jeanene who we stayed with in Paris.
And here is one of the very 1st Sally Jean projects I made using digital kits and vintage papers. It's a house lamp.
