Zazzle is fun. That's where Rica had the scrapbooker's shirts made that I blogged about awhile back. Hey Corinnea, does Collin know about it???

Right before the play started Ethan wanted to take some photos. And he managed to set the camera to manual focus. So I spent the whole first scene trying to find the spot to put it back to auto focus. Of course Haven was only in the first scene, so most of my pictures are blurry. Grrrr.... (Before all you photographers go thinking I'm an idiot, the button was on the side of my camera marked only with abbreviations. I'm not referring to the M vs. Auto functions.)
Here's Haven and her "other half" Sarah.
And just for fun... I've been wanting a new kitchen timer and started looking for the perfect one. I found this geisha today at Real (Tchibo section). I love it!!!! It's so perfect for my black and white decor and my Asian dishes (that I will finish one day...). I bought the pear first and was torn because I really think it belongs in Jess's kitchen. But I needed it. Now that the geisha has found me the pear will go to Jess. (If you want it that is.)

Saturday we went on base for the annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by CYS. Ethan was ... interesting. Once he got a place on the side he would NOT move. I wanted to go stand with JennyP and her girlies but Ethan was like a rock. He got about six candy filled plastic eggs.

"What drives you to buy a digi kit? Is it colors, patterns, elements? For me it’s mainly the colors and the graphics. I love bright colors and cool graphics. Another question: do you use every paper in the kit? Or just one? Maybe 2? That’s what makes me feel bad! I don’t use all the papers I love! And there are a lot! A cool way to use those papers would be to make a mosaic with them. So for this week’s dare I want you to: 1. use as many different papers patterned or not (but there should be at least 4 different patterned papers), as you can. 2. make a word art by putting words you like or turn your favorite quote into a word art by using 5 different alphas or font."
Technically my birthday isn't until May 20, but I've been anticipating this one since last May 20th.

Bling: The diamond swirl and the little pink rhinestone bauble on the left side are my latest little project. I'm painstakingly putting all these tiny little rhinestones on the swirls, or the shapes. They can be colored for whatever project I'm working on. I'm hoping to get a really good collection, but they take soooo long to do each one. I've done three big swirls and five little baubles so far.
With some coaching from JennyP, I ended up making it like an envelope. The tablet slips in the pouch and the flap folds over. I put felt on the front and the little flap has velcro.
I also put velcro on the back of the tablet and the little pen holder so they stick to the felt. On the inside of the pouch is a piece of bookboard, so it becomes a lap pad when I'm using it on the couch. I'm really proud of the little handle. It looks really cute!
