Hello! My Name is Long Hiatus

Hello! Yes, I have been on a long hiatus from this domain.  Apparently, I was swallowed up by the school volunteer monster for the past 4 years.    It was a gift to be able to be soo involved in my kiddo’s school and sit on a PTA/PTO board. . . says no one ever!   If you think the movie, Bad Moms, was satirical, think again!  In all seriousness, it was an experience that I am glad I committed to and experienced.  There were some pretty amazing bright spots in working along-side my kiddo’s teachers, dean, principal and some very dedicated parents, now dear friends.

Another thing I have been cookin’ for the past few years is being a Girl Scout leader for 20+ girls.  Yes, I think I am crazy, but so worth the possible asylum issued straight jacket. It has been a treat to watch these kiddos grow up!  I will be sharing some of our fun ideas, tricks and planning I have come up that helped navigate such a large troop.

As I write this, I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation and just wanting to gorge myself on every creative thing I see! So. . . in saying that, be forewarned! 😉

The first order of business in getting me pointed in the right creative direction, the hubs and I worked on relocating my craft space and giving it a HUGE facelift.  I have to say, I am obsessed with rainbows.  Living in Southern California, they are like finding unicorns. So the only logical remedy to my desire of chasing rainbows (outside of moving to Maui), is use them as the inspiration to brighten up my creative lightbulb hub.

Here are some shots of my new favorite room in the house.  I plan on posting a video tour and organizational tips and tricks in the very near future!

Hi all i am home and well rested from my week at the lake!  I am proud to say I managed to come home sunburn free!  Miracles do happen, especially since we were there during record breaking heat!   Today my post is up over at Jinger Adams’ blog! What a great way to kick back into gear.

Head OVER and check out the fun home decor project I made using her new Sweet Tart Collection.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this collection.  It is full of so many fun treats to play with, it is like having the best play date in your craft room!

Timeless Springtime in Paris Bouquet!

I saw this idea via Pinterst and decided that I was going to take this on for a birthday present idea for my Aunt.  Her birthday is on Monday and every year I get her flowers and we do a spa day together after tax season (since she is an Accountant and is swamped this time of year).  This year I made these in replace of my normal flower arrangements.  I think it will bring a bit of a Parisian flair to her office. . .

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “embracing my inner french girl” pie with me.
