Catching up & then leaving again

Life is just not going to slow down, is it? In the past few weeks we've been busy:

Checking out the trains on the sky bridge at #citycreekcenter #slc

Going downtown to check out the new City Creek center mall.

Got the strawberries in the ground. #fromwhereistand #garden

Getting our little garden planted. Strawberries, basil, cilantro & mint - our summer staples!

Gorgeous spring day in #slc

Hanging out outside as much as we can in the nice weather we've been having!

Cupcakes & fabric shopping with a friend. I'm going to make a Tova tank! For me. A teensy tiny pair of scissors.

Doing a little shopping - some fabric for a Tova tank, some cupcakes, and a darling teensy tiny pair of scissors.

Dying for me to release them from waiting on the stairs so they could hunt eggs!

Being adorable.

The perfect trifecta.

Eating our favorite burger & fries.

Channeling @oneshabbychickhawaii & making a quick new pouch for #snapconf

And of course sewing! I'm heading to the SNAP! Conference today thru Saturday night - well, actually it's happening only about 10 minutes away from my house, so I'll be coming home each night to sleep, but I couldn't resist sewing up a fun little pouch for business cards & chapstick & stuff. My friend Amber sells the CUTEST zip pouches & iPad cases, and I've been in love with the typewriters-on-text-fabric ones she does & I had to have one myself. I boxed the bottom corners of mine a little bit so it stands up by itself & used fusible fleece on the inside so it's nice & squishy. The yellow and aqua polka dot fabric is what's on the inside.

I'm super excited to attend SNAP! - I'll get to meet a bunch of blogger friends that I've been talking with on Twitter & Instagram for years now, I know that the SNAP planners have put together an amazing conference with great classes & events and I'm in definite need of a few kid free days to relax & get re-energized before the big push of the end of school, 4 races in 4 weekends straight, a quick family weekend trip & then Quilt Market! Super exciting stuff on the way - see you on Monday with a SNAP! recap!


  1. So apparently all the awesome creative blogger events are in SLC? :) SNAP sounds like so much fun!

  2. I'm your friend? Yeah!! So happy to hear that! ;) and love all the pics...hope you have a blast this weekend! The pouch is adorable too...I use fusible fleece in mine the way it makes them squishy!
