It's On...

...the countdown to CHA that is! It's been a busy few weeks leading up to CHA trip. I leave Monday morning and still have a million things to do before then. I can't wait to visit with friends, see all the newest and most inspiring collections and buy some of it! I'm charging the camera extra long because I know it will get a work out this week.
Now, last week, I actually fit in a little crafting...
I made this cupcake wrapper wreath that I saw on Tatertots & Jello {one of my new favorite blogs}! Mine is not as full now that I look at hers better - maybe I'll add another package of cupcake wrappers!
I'll be doing a craft show in February {one that I am so not prepared for yet} and these little 'gift card holders' are the first things I put together for it. When I get back from CHA the craft show prep will be top priority because all I have made is these and one 'love' banner!
The most exciting thing that happened at my house this week was...
Riley lost his first tooth! I was wondering when it would finally happen. It had been loose for awhile and the other night he noticed that it was super loose. He asked me to cut up an apple so that he could eat it in hopes of making his tooth come out...and it did!
The tooth fairy left him one dollar!
Kolbi and Savanna had to make a scrapbook for an english assignment so I gave them free reign of a bunch of my stuff. Then I couldn't help my self, I had to snap a pic of them scrapbooking at the kitchen table..*sniff*sniff* that's my girl!
This is random but a couple of weeks ago I decorated up this cheesecake from Costco for a friend's husband. I made it look like his police patch. I'm posting it because it was such a quick, easy and pretty impressive cake idea. I used whipped cream icing so it just made the cheescake even more delicious!

And finally...
Happy 2010!

I know it's almost the end of January and I am barely putting up these New Year's Eve pics but hey, better late than never!
