Flower Lampshade

I'm still on my crafting kick!

Here's a lampshade and more fabric flowers I made this weekend.

Lampshade After

Next up, I'm going to attempt curtains and decorative pillows and canvas bags (using the fabric flowers).

South African Vacation!

Aaron and I had a blast on our South African adventure! The weather was perfect and we got to see lots of amazing things--animals, museums, villages, townships, etc. I think on our next African adventure, however, we're going to get to the beaches--Cape Town or maybe Vic Falls.

Here are some pictures from our trip!

My birthday surprise when I got to the hotel room! Aaron is the BEST at surprises :)

Lesedi Cultural Village

In/Around our Hotel (Sandton/Nelson Mandela Square)


(can you tell giraffes are my fav?!)

Apartheid Museum & Soweto Township

Meet Drake!

Meet the newest member of the Curs clan! He's a handful to say the least, but we're growing to love him more and more!

Crafting Projects

I've been in a crafting mood lately! I even bought a new sewing machine!

Here are some recent pics of things I'm making:

Fall Wreath
(had so much fun crafting with Ash!)

Felt Bows
I'm on a felt bow kick as well :) I'm making bows, clips and decorations.

Last night I sewed a few pillows and a camera pics, but I'm pretty proud :)

Stay tuned for more pics.
