Happy Mother's Day!!!


I frequent a local Ben Franklin Craft store. They put together a huge presentation board of K&Co's Blue Awning...LOVE it. It's funny though, I don't consider myself a "blue" girl but knew that I needed the Blue Awning line. It is the brocade...the glitter...the flocking...actually the patterns do kind of scream of Basic Grey...Last weekend, after taking my soldering class, I "went to town" with my 10% off coupon {lol}...picked up a bunch of the Blue Awning line. I brought a bunch of cards into work to sell...I am actually pretty pleased with my growing coffee fund :)

Yesterday we spent the day in Seattle. I finally took the kids to the Seattle Asian Art Museum and we walked around Volunteer Park.





I had such a fun time with the kids...I'm one lucky duck! Afterwards I did some power shopping at Uwajimaya. That's a dangerous thing to do when I'm hungry :)

This morning the kids are busy preparing my breakfast...LOVE my kids...it has become a wonderful Mother's Day tradition. I'll spend most of the day being crafty {making my mom's Mother's Day card!}, do some shopping and seeing my mom.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!!
