12x12 Happiness

Oh, how I LOVE creative time. Can I just say how absolutely happy creating makes me. I don't care what artsy, creative or crafty thing it is, as long as I get to use my hands and make it look pretty or cool, I am in BLISS! I am so thankful for the blessing of creativity Heavenly Father gave me. When I am not creating it's like I have an itch I can't scratch. So the last 2 weeks I have worked really hard at scratching! I had so much fun SCRAPBOOKING! I haven't scrapped 12x12 layouts (for myself) in a long while, so I decided it was way overdue. Here are a few of the pages I've done lately. The pics of them aren't great but oh well.

The classes are 2 hours long and on every other Weds. each class is $10. They are mostly doing mini books, but there are some other projects too. They have some super fun stuff planned.

Creative Kids Workshop

Summer is almost officially here, although the over 100 degree weather outside says it's already upon us. If you don't know what to do with your tween and teen girls this summer sign them up for Creative kids workshop at ETC with me. These pics are of the journal we will be making in the third class on Fri. July 10 12:30-3:30. The girls will learn how to sew a book, do some decorative sewing & we will practice our doodling skills. By the way there are always late night crops on Friday nights until 11:30pm, so after your daughter is done with class you and her can stick around for some more girl time (my daughter LOVES the late niters. The second class on June 19 will be a fourth of July decoration. I haven't designed it yet, I am waiting for all the new 4th of July goodies to arrive. Have a happy creative day (Iam finally going to goo eat lunch, yeah)

A New Family Member

I have been married for 14 1/2 years and my hubby has always wanted a dog and for 14 1/2 years I have said NO WAY! But for some very strange reason when I saw the sweet little six week old golden retrievers at the Lehi Days rodeo I suddenly was the one saying maybe we should get one. It is official stress makes you do crazy things! That night after the rodeo John and I told the kids we were going on a date and two hours and way too much $ later we came home with 'Hobbes'. Their faces were sooo cute when they saw him (except Pierce, he sooo didn't care, yeah his is 13) So here are some pictures of Hobbes when we first got him at 6 weeks. He was a little fluff ball, so cute! The last picture is of him and Gabe today. Hobbes and Gabe are our patients today. Gabe is apparently extremely allergic to some plant at a park on the street behind us. John and him took Hobbes for a walk and came back with Gabe's eyes almost swollen shut, poor kid. He's looking lots better tonight. Hobbes got fixed on Friday so he is sporting the super fashionable cone head look. The cone head thing is so funny, he keeps tripping himself and then he just gives up and lays down. So I guess you could say I now have 6 kids (seven if you count John,lol)

I'm Alive!!!!

I seriously can NOT believe I haven't blogged since January. That's so sad and a bit pathetic, but it was also nice not thinking about one more thing.

SOOOO SORRY to anyone who I promised to e-mail or if you e-mailed me and I didn't respond. I do have a good explaination (Not just total laziness) We have been having computer issues. My adorable pre-teen daughter set our computer to record three tv shows EVERYDAY.......three shows that each air 2-3 times daily can add up pretty quick......like over 1000 shows recorded.......yes I am serious, she actually recorded over 1000 tv shows. In her defense she claims she didn't know she was recording all of them......which sounds about right......but seriously that child has got to STOP clicking OK on every pop up!!! (by the way if she finds out I blogged this I am sooo dead! So i am telling you this at a risk to my own life. She's a little sensitive about the topic) Anyway 1000 shows can fill up a computer pretty quick. My hubby's best guess is that because the computer was so full it wasn't able to upload the internet explore updates. So john fixed that problem ....then it still didn't work.......then the problem seemed to be our parental safety set up.......then he thought it was Cox............Long story short John finally switched our internet provider, which meant my cox e-mail address was NO more. So I never got the e-mails and I have lost all my contacts....so sad. So if you don't totally hate me for seemingly ignoring you, you can now e-mail me at jwagpaper@live.com
Since I can not stand blogging without photos here are pics of my project for the my first Creative Kids Workshop (for tweens & teens) I had so much fun making this little colorful and funky BFF mini book. The book is down at Etc you have to check out the cute pics of Sierra and her BFF Melinna. I took the girls to Mesa Arts Center for their 'photo shoot' It was perfect!!!!! They have these awesome colored glass walls there that TOTALLY matched the colors in the book.....happy happy day! If you have never taken pics there you have got to go. I added a couple of pics of the girls, too. Have a happy creative day!
