yeah, so i dont know if you know this about me, but i have all the time in the world to play, create, sing, dance ~ oh yeah and be a over the top, amazing mom!! haha ~ right,,, i have to admit, since i now teach myself, i hadnt taken a class just for me!! the main reason being that the class that i might want to sit in on is usually on the same day as a class im teachin ~ but at another store,,, anyway, i was so excited to be a part of missy allison krefts ~ you know hambly class today at ever after. even as exciting, i took the class with mrs casey rivas ~ so, so much fun!! i spent the day with two amazing artists!! i told casey i wanna be like her when i grow up because she is so ~ so talented!! so much of what i add to classes has been inspired by her work,,, oh yeah, and i have to admit, i feel like the biggest dork that im even making such a big deal about this, but whatta ya gonna do?!?!?so, back to that whole "i have a ton of time thing" ~ it was a joke,,, gotta run to prep for class tomorrow!!!

HAPPY FATHERS DAY to my hubbs and my pops!!! i love you guys,,, lots!!!
so my dad ~ the ham wanted me to take these pictures using daniles "S" sticker (my mom got for him to adhere to any of his t shirt), and his blankie for props. here are the results,,,,
i think the second photo is a pose he had always had in mind!! the best part is that i had printed up 4X6's of these two photos and gave them to my dad. after a good laugh he handed them back to me. i told him that i printed extras, thinking he might want copies himself. he straight up told me "i dont want these, i want them bigger."!! yup, so for fathers day, guess what my pops got?!?! 10X13 framed photos of himself, just as you see him here!!! good, good stuff right here. *side note* i totally wanted to do a mothers day post, but didnt for two reasons ~ one being that my mom doesnt like to take pictures (unlike my pops), so i dont have one,,, second is that my internet wasnt around those days, so my posting was few and far between, but it isnt because i dont think my mom is equally as great as my dad ~ they both rock!!!! maybe ill do a late mothers day post just for her,,,, hmmm,,,,,,

i cant believe it ~ my lil' brother graduated from high school yesterday!!! hes all growed up now!!! haha,,, yeah right!! as i was sitting there yesterday, watching my little brother go through exactly what i went through exactly ten years ago, i couldnt help be reflect on that day i sat in that very same football field, patiently waiting for the beach ball to bounce over my way. yeah, that was pretty much all i had on my mind as speech after speech ran over the loud speaker. at the moment, it seems as thought that is the biggest and greatest time of your lives, now looking back ~ was it a big deal?? of course ~ BUT its crazy how really and truly, their lives are just beginning. welcome to the real world little brother!!!daniel *loves* to pick me flowers, i know i said that before, but i still get as kick out of it!!! he picked me three as we walked back to the car after the graduation ceremony. by the tim i could snap a shot about a half a hour later, they were almost gonners, but i dont care, i still think he is the sweetest little boy. so, with that, here is a little pieces of me action working....... oh yeah, and check out what i was finally able to get my hands on!! go figure, i try to get it at barnes and noble, but didnt succeed, i got it at jo anns. so excited to add another elise something or another to my collection!!!and how was i supposed to resist not posting this picture!!! my little man rocking a bob marley t shirt?!?! so rad ~ life is good!!!

heeeyyy,,,, i hope everyone had a fun weekend!! i did, thanks for asking!! so ~ as of around 3:00 today, ever after now has my *be happy* class sample up and ready for your eyeballs. im so excited about this too ~ ever after has some kits for sell!!! they come with every ~ EVERYthing that you need (well, not staples, but everything else!!). i have full 4X6 color photos included in the kits and i also offer my email if you should have any questions. im hoping to add to my busy life and continue to work with camille and sell kits there ~ or anywhere for that matter!! ;) let me know if youre also interested,,,,, the first kit we are putting up for sell is the 1000 words mini i have taught. the class went really well, so we thought that we would offer some kits to sell. keep in mind that all of the paper that comes in these kits is double sided, so you can totally buy two kits using each side of the album to expand your lil' guy. just a thought,,,,this is so funny!!! like my shoes?!?! alright so before you think i am a total freak ~ NO ~ i did not teach wearing these shoes, but if you took my class this past sunday at its about time, you totally get it,,, right ladies?!?! yep and thats about all im going to comment about this photo, i just still think this story is funny and i just could not resist!!!
bummer ~ i totally thought i was tan,,,, guess im not as tan as i thought,,,,, anyway here are a few shots from class ~ good times!!! yeah, and i swear more peps signed up ~ turned out to be a few kits,,,, **(side note to make me feel better)**
