Whew! Well, we are back from vacation! I don’t know what made em think any part of that would be relaxing but we did manage to have fun! Unfortunately Anna was out of sorts the whole time and needed a lot of negotiation and deep breathing on our part, but through it all we got lots of sun, swimming, bug catching, and even lots of shopping! the perfect little getaway! But being back home means jumping right back into the craziness of our lives – hubby is grouting our new tile in our bathroom, and I am doing laundry of course, and painting like a mad man, trying to get ready for Sunday!! I’ll post the market again of Facebook soon, so watch out for that! I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to see you there!
I thank you for all sticking it out with me, while I’ve been sick and now away!
I am thankful Melanna is here today for our Fame On Friday!! I hope to post again on Monday or Tuesday, to let you know how the weekend went!! Take it away Melanna!!
My name is Melanna and I blog over at Rhapsody of Cacophony.
It’s my little piece of the internet world where I share all about the crazy that is my life. I “met” Leanne through a Facebook group for bloggers and very quickly became a fan of her blog. And since I live “next door” to her in Alberta, Canada I feel we have lots in common. Thanks for having me here today, Leanne!
I started blogging when my list of potential crafty and party projects got too long and I needed something to spur me on to get things done. (click on the pictures if you want to see that post)
I even took on scary things like trying out a sewing machine.
Turns out it’s not so scary. It even got obsessive for a while there (it probably ranks in my top two mediums for crafting and creating). I think I spent a solid 2 months this past spring only sewing! I even managed to make a tutorial for this dress:
My sweet husband got me a Silhouette for Christmas one year and a whole new obsession of crafting began! And I haven’t even moved past using it for paper.
When I was 6 my mom got a friend to put together a music themed birthday party for me. I have never forgotten it (or the 3D grand piano cake!). Since having kids I’ve gotten a little party obsessed and plan their birthdays all year long. So throughout my blog you’ll find the growing collection of parties I’ve put on for them (another one will be posted about next week since it’s happening tomorrow!). These are just a few:
|Teddy Bear’s Picnic|
My favourite part of parties? Making the cake!
Sometimes I’ll throw in a recipe (when I remember to take pictures!), but mostly it’s all just the every day happenings of our life.
And of course since I’m a mom these two find their way into many of my posts.
I’d love to meet you, so I hope you’ll stop by and say hello!
Isn’t she a.m.a.z.i.n.g.?!?! Thanks Melanna!! xoxo!
