I sent out these save-the-dates before the holidays… all but one of my girls could make it.. hey thats good odds when you have different states, husbands, work, kids, and boyfriends into the mix!!
melyssa's husband luke thought he would be funny and he shipped me this after seeing you can ship a flip flop in the mail :)
that luke. he's a funny guy :)
so with a threat of yucky winter weather friday.. it cleared in time for everyone to make it down to the island… steph was the only one who couldn't come… shes a busy busy girl ;) and has had TONS of island time in the past year, so i figured i would forgive her!!
dawn, josie, melyssa and stacy all arrived safely and filled the island with their crafty stuff and laughter…. just what i needed after a couple crappy weeks…. these girls are my chosen family, and even though we don't get to see each other often… when we do, we pick up right where we left off!!! it's freakin great!! i am so thankful for them!
girls weekend also means its a weekend where i get to scrap just for me… no assignments, no classes, just me :) lots of funny stories were shared… confiding in not so fun times… and plans of a few more get togethers in 2011 that i'm WICKED excited for :)
mister harley was really good too… most of the time he slept in his box on my crafty table (we were all crafting in the livingroom….)
only one pic was taken…. but that ok… all the memories are in my mind (and on the bathroom wall hehehehe)
I'll share some of the layouts i created 2morrow and later in the week!
so where has jenn been????
well, i had those fabulous few days away with my friends in NH, my dad, melyssa who was visiting from washington AND jos…..
then i came home, and had a BIG project to do….. packing and moving….
i had decided to move out, and on my own (watcher and i) i found the cutest lil place, ok well jayne found it for me…. and june 24th was moving day…..
tough decisions sometimes need to be made, and your happiness should always come first…. some new lessons i am trying to learn…..
and i’m falling back on the good ol standbys of ” everything happens for a reason” AND “whats meant to be will be”
i have no regrets, just excitement of what the future may hold
thank you to everyone who has emailed, worried about where i was.. sorry to keep you hanging……
i have been partly sooo busy and also wasn’t quite sure how this post would go…..
so for now… i’m “cooling on my island” ( a fav tori amos song ;) ) and i will leave you with photos pre move in.. of the new place…..
#1 my living room
#2 my cute lil kitchen
#3 other side of my kitchen
#4 my bedroom
#5 my future crafty space
now it all looks MUCH different now with my stuff in here… will take more pics in the future :)
