This past week I had a chance to do a few of my favorite things...I love animals and I enjoy making things.
First up - THE PUPPIES. I may have a small obsession for animals and especially little ones - courtesy of my mother. My good friend from college just happened to have puppies at her house. So - I loaded myself up in the car... camera - check ... rachel - check ... a lot of love for the sweet bundles of joy - check ...and I was on my way. Here's how the trip went -
So - just when you think your week can't get much better ... another great adventure came my way. I love making things and being creative - but lately I've been in a little rut and haven't made much. Well - Tuesday afternoon - my puppy friend, Beth, came to town. We were planning to go camping, but with the heat we changed our minds and decided to create Craft Camp 2011 at my sister's house (I was house sitting and watching her dog).
Beth loaded her car with fabric, sewing machine, table...you name it. I loaded my car with a sewing machine, iron, fabric and lots of other useful materials and we set up camp. We sewed and created all hours of the day and night (We did take a few breaks to enjoy local eating establishments in Winona). It was a blast and refreshing to work on things I had been putting off and be inspired by another great craft/art person. Craft Camp 2011...
The week ended with a family gathering in Wells for my cousin's graduation party. It was wonderful to see family, catch up with cousins, and get a nice nap in the car - thanks Dad for driving. (Sleeping in the car is the most amazing thing for me - I once asked my mom if she would just drive me around for a few hours - she politely declined).
Well before I sign off here - I would like to wish Miss Kirsten another Happy Birthday - I can't believe you are already 13. I remember when you were born like it was yesterday. You are an amazing young lady and I am so proud to be your aunt.
Love and Hugs -
