5th Anniversary!

Today is my 5th Wedding Anniversary!

We are really bad at celebrating, but this year is different. We aren’t going to celebrate today.

We are going to celebrate by taking a trip to Australia later this summer! Yep, I think we need a vacation from Hawaii.

We will be spending our time in Sydney, so let me know if you have been there, and what we should do!! We are both super excited!

To many more!

A Day of Quilting

I had guests for a couple weeks, and I had been super busy. Yesterday I was able to pull out my sewing machine to work on a few baby blankets or baby quilts for the many pregnant woman I know.

Here is the top of the one I am going to give to my cousin. I am still figuring out if I want to add a border, trim it, or what.


I totally screwed up on this and wish I had ironed after each triangle, so the back side is a little crazy. I learned my lesson.

Next is a quilt that I had been wanting to do for a long time. I had purchased 6 mini charms from Simply Color by Moda, and I wanted to do a simple colorful baby quilt with it.


I will be adding a border to this one. I am thinking gray. I do have more squares and could do a square border around it, but I am all out of the pinks. But I have some of the fabrics to do a double border. We will see what I end up with, I could always do white too. Any suggestions?

This one is not perfect at all. I was working on trying to match up the squares. I am not the best, but I got better with practice. If I love this so much I might keep it as a wall hanging. Do you see Lucie hanging out under the table? She has to be near me all the time.

Next week I am hoping to get my L Letterpress out and work on some cards! I have been neglecting it while I got the house together, but I have some new templates I want to play with. I would also love to get my Christmas Cards done early!

My First Visitors to Hawaii

I have been MIA these past weeks. My first visitors to my house came! We had so much fun, and I was super busy. Mostly busy hanging out at the beach or the pool, but I will fully admit, I got nothing done, and it felt great.

You would think since I lived here, that I actually done most of the stuff to do, but I haven’t.

I visited my first Waterfall.


Stopped by the Dole Plantation (which was not worth the trip). My husband and I have driven past it so many times, but this time we stopped, and it was just a giant pineapple gift shop. Save yourself some money and get a pineapple at the grocery store. Its cheaper, and the exact same thing. We took some fun pictures and got dole whip though!


I went to my first Luau, and Lisa and I got on stage to do the hula. It was so much fun. The drinks were great (but I only had one since I was the driver --- and I finished it before the luau began).


Do you see me on the right side in the blue dress? My friend is to the left of me in the light dress.

I even went snorkeling! But, I am not a snorkeler I found out. I had troubles breathing and I think I may have had a panic attack so I let my friends continue to snorkel as I watched from the shore. I did see a ton of fish, and was so afraid something was going to eat me. I do want to try it again, but I think I will have to practice in the pool.

Well, now off to start some things, finish some things, and probably do some laundry. I hope to be back soon to craft, sew, and throw what I know onto my blog! Have a great weekend!


Oh and a couple months back I went and saw Toby Keith. This is my and my friend Patricia who had her baby a few weeks ago at the concert.
