So Sarah came up with the idea of making these beautiful mum pillows. She, by the way, is also the one who found the framed butterfly craft. I can't wait! I'm going to try and make mine in a shade of blue that will complement the blue in my upholstered chair. Or maybe a cream color? Or maybe a rich brown? I just don't know!

So our new lamp is awesome! Too bad the arch isn't as wide or as high above the ground as we were hoping. It ends up hanging way too low over the table. When B and I tested it out by sitting across from each other, we couldn't see one another's eyes! Enjoy it while it lasts... we're going to have to return the lamp this weekend. Wah!

B and I decided to get away for the weekend, so we called up our family in South Bethany, DE to see if they were up for some visitors. Lucky us, they were! As always, they treated us like royalty by taking very good care of us. B was happy because he got to watch all four football games with the guys this weekend. I was happy because I got to catch up with my aunt and grandmother -- both of which were LONG overdue. We had so much fun that we couldn't leave without planning our next get-together. Look out wallet! Phantom of the Opera and a mid-west trek to follow Laura Ingalls Wilder's footsteps are on the calendar!
We loved it :)

Wouldn't this tree collage be so fun to make?! I'm just not sure where I'd hang something like this... I'm gonna mull it over a bit. Well, that and finish the other projects I've already started. Speaking of which, I'm taking a quilting class next month. My mom is giving me an old sewing machine so that I can get started and see how I like it. Twenty years ago I did take a sewing machine class, after all! I'm sure all the tricks and techniques will come back to me. I can't wait to get started!

I spent Sunday at E's place "preparing" to make a craft. I put that in quotes because we had both expected to actually fully make something, but I guess we took a bit too long getting lunch, DQ blizzards, and of course the materials. Here are some photos of our progress:

So I've sort of "paralyzed" myself by not wanting to post something new until I "finished" posting my Brazil photos. It's about time I got over that stupid notion :-p I'm excited about this coming Sunday because E and I are going to hang out and do something crafty. I've gotten so many good ideas from several of my friends, and I can't wait! I think E is just as excited as me. The only problem I have now is narrowing down all the possible crafting projects to just one! Photos to follow...
