And......I am back!

Things have been so hectic at work lately and I have been quilting up a storm. Sorry I haven't updated. Hopefully you haven't removed me from your blog lists forever. I really get frustrated when people who I love to see their blog don't update so I am sorry for being one of those people. I actually have been creative lately. I finished two quilts in the last two months thanks to my friend Kim who keeps pushing me to finish projects before starting new ones (even when I fuss about it). My desire to cut into new fabric causes me to stay focused on finishing my already started projects.

Anyway, enough about that. Have any of you read "The Kite Runner". If not, you definitely wanna pick a copy up! It is the best book I have read next to To Kill a Mockingbird. I absolutely love this writer. I would actually read it again right now but I will refrain. I think I am going to read "The other bolyen girl" next. I heard it is a fantastic book. I am taking a break from the chick flick books which are normally on my bookcase.

This weekend I saw The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants". It was so fantastic! I liked it even better than the first one.

I also made my way to Jo-anne fabrics this weekend. They are having a fantastic sale on all their scrapbooking supplies. I got this collection of the colorblok fruit papers. It is so cute. I made this mini book from a tutorial on splitcoast I saw a while ago. I have been meaning to do this tutorial for awhile. I used some of the coordinating rub ons on the inside on top of the scalloped circles.

Also...did you see the new set from Eclectic Paperie MERRY MUFFINS

Check out this Taylor Van Bruggen's blog an awesome card. Scroll down to her Friday August 8th posting.

Hope you all are having a great week!

I am going to place my order for all the new Stampin Up stuff! I have to have all the new ribbons and some of the fantastic paper. I also really want the Upsy Daisy set.
