Piddlin' Pottery

On Saturday Mom, Ashley, Jennifer and I went to Piddlin' Pottery. ( Today, we got to pick up our finished pottery. This is what I made:

Yes, I free-handed the letters. If the plate ever breaks, I have no clue what I am going to do because I don't think I could do a repeat on the whole lettering thing.

Today I feel... INSPIRED!

Tonight I went to scrapbook class at April's (
I very rarely put pictures on scrapbook pages. I am more a collector. I have been taking this class for almost three years now. It is once a month and we make 3 2-page spreads. Now let's do the math... that's 108 2-page spreads. Let's not count the all day things where you make like 20 pages. You don't put pictures on at class, you just do all the stamping, cutting & gluing so that you can add your photos later. So, needless to safe I have a TON of scrapbook pages with no pictures. I was working on the following page and when I stamped the sentiment "You make me life a beautiful thing" I IMMEDIATELY thought of the picture of me & Hallie from my wedding. She is truly a beautiful little girl. Her beauty radiates from within. SOOO... I stamped and wrote the headline "true beauty comes from within..." After I got home and showed Mom the pages, I pulled out my wedding albums and Mom asked me what I was doing. I told her I was getting the picture of Hallie. She was SHOCKED and said "You are actually going to put pictures on a page" and I laughed. I picked out these photos, went to the living room and started cropping. 10 minutes later... this is what I came up with!

THANK YOU, APRIL! For making me feel INSPIRED!

Random Thoughts

I haven't blogged in a while because I haven't had much to say. I am sitting here by myself. Wade is at work and Mom & George just left to play cards. I enjoy the time to myself but around 6, I will start feeling lonely. Wade will be home around 8:30 and we will eat dinner together, watch the rest of Design Star, put in a movie and I will go to sleep.
I had a great day yesterday. Mom & I went to Piddlin' Pottery with Ashley & Jennifer. We had so much fun. I can't wait to pick up my plate on Thursday. I will post a picture after I pick it up.
That's about all I have to report. I know totally boring. Hopefully I will start posting more when my new laptop gets here.... laters...
