Sweet Stops Craft Class

Friday at lunch I got to go to my friend's
Sweet Stops Boutique held at the Moon Valley Country Club. 

Most all of the items are hand painted.

Just thought that I would share a little of the good stuff.

Lots and lots of eye candy!

Gifts and Christmas shopping 'aplenty.

And, of course, some Halloween fun.

Darling rolling pins!

Did you say you want some crazy reading glasses?

I think that a lot of this has probably sold, but
if you are interested in anything, you should 
check out the SweetStops Etsy Shop

After the boutique there is always a fabulous craft class with a meal.
All the supplies are always included
This was one of the biggest classes yet! 
Over 60 ladies for The Rustic Pumpkin class this quarter. 

There will be another class before Christmas.

If you want to know more about the next class 
go to the SweetStops facebook page and like it. 

You'll get all the fun updates.

Monday's Manicure

Essie - The Girls are Out
Love this color! Can you see the silver sheen to it? 
Soooo shiny in the sun light.
Even though this was part of the summer color collection, I will wear this all year.
The formula is also really nice. Just 2 coats with a clear top coat.
Love it!

A Bridal Shower With a Retro Desperate Housewives Theme

I'm so excited to show you pictures from our daughter's 
bridal shower. This is one of those moments in time where
everything was just perfect, but as you remember the evening
just gets better and better.

It was held at my friend Debi's home. 
She has a gorgeous home and is incredibly gifted with 
so many talents. Decorating, painting and hospitality to name a few.
Her big gift is party planning and yes... she is for hire. :) 

Here is a link to her Etsy Shop
If you like MacKenzie Childs.... do NOT go there. 
That is all I'm going to say about that. :)


The party had a fun Retro Desperate Housewives feel to it. 

Each guest got to take home a darling handmade apron. 

And a Betty Crocker cheese grater too! 

I mean seriously... it just doesn't get any sweeter than this.

We even had a cooking show and the set later served as a 
photo booth. 
Look at that darling turquoise kitchen
SOOOO cute!

50's themed appetizers... including cheese whiz on crackers!

This was the gift table (pre gifts) .... so much fun! 
Thank you Debi!

I'll be joining:

Let's Just Try

Do you have projects that you said (promised) you would do? 
Are you afraid of starting and failing? Oh My Gosh! 
For today, let's decide to just try.
Try to do just one thing at a time.
You'll be surprised at what you can get done.

Let's just try!

Bauble Fun

 I'm just popping in to show you a little bauble that I put
together for a hostess gift.

Technically, I made it for myself. Then my daughter
loved it. So I made her one too. 

Then I thought that it would be fun to give it to my
friend Debi who is hosting the big wedding shower
Saturday night.

I'm telling ya! 
With all the fun jewelry findings that are at
Michael's, JoAn and Hobby Lobby, you can make some
fun stuff! It's easy and inexpensive.

Have you tried your hand at jewelry making?
