i wanna get crafty!!!

So this summer I haven't been exactly as productive as I would have liked. Don't get me wrong, I have been kicking my own rear at the gym almost daily and really loving it.... well my average would be like 3.9 days a week - there was lots and lots of family time, where touristy things and food occupied that time!

The area of productivity I was really talking about has been my art. I have been totally neglecting it - taking photos, painting, drawing, etc. I dabbled a bit yesterday afternoon when I was home sick from work (I had a sore throat and runny nose, folks....for reals!). So I worked on a little project that I started a while back. I have been putting together a recipe book semi scrapbook style and another scrapbook style book of Life's general-what-not. Pasting or handwriting out some cut-out fab finds from Mags. Food for the recipe book and cute outfit ideas/make-up tricks/hair styles/decorating ideas for the other. Also print outs from Martha (cuz she knows what she is doing in the kitchen and home!) and jotting down great food/meal ideas from yummy restaurants or the occasional Food Network show.

So when I stumbled over to 100 Layer Cake, and subsequently Heart of Light this morning, and saw these headbands/belts/awesomeness I felt the very strong urge to run to the closest fabric store.....and I realize I have no clue where that is, but will mange and then makes these! ...So this weekends mission is to find, purchase and conquer!

Just look at how awesomely cute these are! I can't wait and will probably make a few this weekend!!!
