A little bit of this and that, and my touch with FAME!

Okay! I JUST found out that I won some ECHO PARK from their blog! What? You didn't know they had one? Go check it out become a follower and your name can be drawn for a prize--pretty sweet! (click on the word blog to go to it....)

My brush with fame was yesterday, I was at the gym. Not really wanting to be working out anymore. I look up and see a familiar face--my brain quickly assesses that it is Filipe Fa from the BIGGEST LOSER season 7! My head must have done a double take or something because he sort of smiles at me, I smiled too and waved, he waved back! I didn't scream or run up to him or anything...figured he was there to work out to!

Alright you came for creative stuff right?! This is the project I wanted to show you:
This is made with envelopes--don't worry I will have a tutorial up here real soon!
A couple of weeks ago my friend had an open house to celebrate the birth of her son. I was RACKING my brains trying to figure out what I should make him. (I like to make baby gifts--much more unique I think....) Anyway, I was looking through previous projects and saw that I had made something very similar before. Next came paper. I went through my paper and found that the travel line by Cosmo Cricket was perfect. I used the scraps from this project. Two baby gifts for the price of one! :) This really was quick and easy!
Well, I'm off to go read my book! I'm currently reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Pretty good so far--have to read while it's quite around here! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Diana,

I love the creative baby gift :-)

So cool you saw Felipe at the gym. I haven't seen any Biggest Loser contestants at my gym yet.

I read City of Bones and really enjoyed it.

I have updated my blog about fall vegetable gardening - since you mentioned wanting to know :-)
