Since I haven’t rambled for a while…

creative estates2

I’m packing up and heading out to Creative Estates in two days.  TWO DAYS!!!

I’ve spent entirely too much time running around trying to find stuff to wear.  I may have accidentally bought 2 pairs of identical capri pants, on different days, at different stores.  And I think I’m going to keep/wear them both on account of not actually having time to care about it anymore.  AZ hit 100 last week (though I hear it’s going to be much more bearable this weekend).  We woke up to this on Sunday:


Hard to think HOT when that’s what’s outside, right?

At least my feet are in the spirit:


And I made something to hold my business cards:


So,  you know, who needs clothes?

In addition to the delightful Shabby Apple giveaway I posted yesterday (go here to enter), I’ve got some more fabulous giveaways lined up to keep you company this weekend whilst I’m away.

You won’t even miss me.

In fact, you might be glad I’m gone.


Please follow and like us:


  1. That One Girl says:

    Never never NEVER glad you're gone! <3
    Have fun! Wish I were more creative so I could go! :-P

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your shoes! Orange is my favorite color. Where did you get them? Hope you have a great trip. :)

  3. Kylie Craftafarian says:

    pfftt we love you, we aren't glad when you are gone…unless I actually win a giveaway, then maybe ;)

  4. What are you talking about? 100 is TOTALLY bearable! We barely noticed it was warm at all.

    Okay, that might be a little lie, 100 in April is pretty warm, but that's what swimming is for.

    Enjoy, I wish I was coming!

  15. Amy at Ameroonie Designs says:

  16. Mitch + Roz says:

    How fun!! I just wanted to say I absolutely LOVE your blog! My sister an I just started a craft blog of our own (not completely finished yet) but we're getting started and would LOVE any advice you have to make our blog as great as yours… Check it out

  17. Melanie@Crafty Cupboard says:

    I did think of all you frozen popsicle people when we were at the pool… but it was only 80-something this past Sunday, so hopefully it will be pleasant.

  18. The Bronson Bunch says:

    Where did you get those shoes?! Adorable!!

  19. Sims Family says:

    Hey Char, I am going, too! (the conference and the GNO!) And super excited, too. I actually live here and I will tell you it is still HOT. Not 100, but we came inside this morning from the park because it was too freaking hot out there. You will definitely get use out of the cute sandals and capris. Swim suit may be a good option, as well. :)
    I hope to meet you there!

  20. ellie g says:

    I am coveting the shoes and the card holders. NOT the snow. You can keep that. I have plenty. Get your jammies ready!

  21. kami @ says:

    I'm in love with your new shoes! Adorable! See you in two! :)

  22. I need to know the color of the polish on your toes. NEED. Seriously. Please. :) I couldn't even focus on what the post was about due to your polish….

  23. Just this... Alice says:

    My daughter would love to have your shoes to go with her Florida Gators outfit. Care to share where they may be purchased? Miss you so much when you're gone, could never be glad. Best Wishes for a great time.


  1. […] wanted to show you the cute business card holder I made. My friend Char made one, and I wanna be just as cool as her, so of course I had to make one too. Both of us used […]
