Our Cookie Party

I have been too 'busy' to blog... and here are a few of my favorite people to explain why I would rather spend time with them than on the computer....
Here is our first Cookie Baking Party... we sure enjoyed ourselves!.. and each other
Pinterest fail 
Everything was AMAZING And really really good... such a fun fun day.

It's fun to have the time to make things again!!!
easy-peasy little nutcup for your Thanksgiving table
Here's all you need: sugar cones, a cup of HOT water, microwave and a pencil or screw driver for shaping.
Place your cone, pointed side down, in a cup of HOT water for 20 seconds
Put in the microwave for 20 seconds.  Take it out immediately and shape the end using your 'shaper tool'.    Let dry and...
 you have a cute and easy Cornucopia nutcup!
Happy Thanksgiving... I am so thankful for all my family near and far, friends near and far, the Military and Missionaries near and far.  My hope is that we can all enjoy a calm peaceful day of reflection with those we love with thankfulness in our hearts.

NOT under control

I am still not able to get this life under control and blog consistently, yep... being pulled in too many directions.  Not a complaint, just a fact.
I did want you all to know that I had an experience last Friday that makes me fully aware that I am in Arizona.
Yep saw me one of them scorpions... in the bathroom... a large one, scorpion, not bathroom.
I ran like crazy.

Welcome to Arizona Lisa.

Sedona in October

Honey, I want one just like this ...with Pumpkins to last all year!  (reminds me of my Half Moon Bay home!)  Well let me just say that out here in the AZ heat... they would have to be ceramic.  
We had a fun trip to Sedona---
Here's King Derek!
 and the whole family,well almost.. without me and Uncle Eddy.. (we're both so camera shy!)
 So Arizona/Sedona in a nutshell: 
The Peppers
 the ants

Just a little Wedding in Arizona

While moving from WA to AZ my cousin called (we were about half way through  Idaho).  Her daughter was getting married... and since I was now going to be in Arizona... and she knows how much I love making things... well she needed help getting all the wedding stuff-s together.  I LOVED IT!!! I love weddings and making things.. and this would give my sanity something else to do besides stress over moving.
Here is the cute couple:
and here are a few of the things I made:
baby headbands, bridesmaids sashes
more baby headbands  
Bridesmaids head pieces, (but they actually wore them around their waists!)  CUTE little baskets I found at Target to put them all in! 
Then it was on to chalk boards, letters, banners (oh my)
 This is the bride's headpiece:
 And my favorite, the silk 'throw' bouquet!
  More to come!
