Creative Energy

This morning I had my Band-Aid tin workshop. It was alot of fun!! I love teaching others to be creative!! Ash asked me to make a couple of journals for her friends. She has two with birthdays next week. I used CTMH My Reflections "Free Spirit" B&T paper and "More to Adore" B&T paper. These are always popular. She took her Scissorbella book to school and she has several friends that want me to make them something.

State Fair

Yesterday we sent to the State Fair. Its been a few years since we've been. We pretty much go for the food! LOL!! It was a great day to go. It was cooler and overcast. We wandered around looking at all the rides and carnival games. We checked at all the animal barns and 4H entries. I wonder if any of the cows are related to Pioneer Woman's??
There was alot of nice handmade/grown items. Its nothing like the exitement I remember as a kid!!! But we still had a good time!

I made Ash a contact book for school. She wants to start writing down her clients and formula's. I used the Scissorbella stamp, retired Stampin UP! papers, Close to My Heart Ocean and Breeze cardstock and Sept SOTM - Doddle Alphabet. I used Diamond Dust to glitter some of the shapes. These composition books are on sale right now for 50 cents each at Walmart.

They are fabulous! I got a couple of stamp sets and the new Destressing kit! I'm so excited that I am shaking. (It doesn't take much to excite me!!) :)

Its was Kuna Days this weekend. There was a big BBQ at the park and then Fireworks. They lasted about 30 minutes. Saturday morning Wilt and I got up about 4:30am and drove to Steck Park on Brownlee Reservoir. We heard the cat fishing was good so we thought we would give it a try. 3 hours and only a few bites. We were home by noon, so we headed down to Kuna Days again. We had corndogs and some kind of potato for lunch. I think its call the potato tornado??

Here is a picture of Rock Island where we were fishing.
