Busy busy busy...

Sorry I have not posted lately, been working and hitting the trade shows...Charlie and I went to the gem and jewelry show wendesday and I picked out my 20th wedding anniversary band, we were able to buy wholesale so we saved a ton on it! I am having it sized and appraised and will have it on my blog June 10th! It is beautiful!!! I fell in love with it when I saw it!
So stay tuned!
Thursday found me at jewelry class and friday I went with some of the girls to the bead and jewelry shows, one at palace station and one at the convention center, we had a fun time hanging out and buying beads and other items! I found some neat turquoise peace signs and bought gemstones to make silver rings, will post pictures tomorrow as I have to get going, I am scrapping all day at one of ginger's crops!
See you soon!

UPDATED -The Room!

I re added the photos I think you can click on them to make them bigger, and I did not have a photo showing the wall with the window and my marvin gaye quote so here is the full version!

Well, here it is my new craft room! I still have a little more tweaking to do but this is 98% done. I still need to label all the boxes so I can find stuff and I still need to do some sorting and organizing. I love my music quotes on the walls, I may add one or two more. Overall it is a nice place to work! My tools are on the workbench so my table is free for lots of scrapbooking!

I love my hide away trash can! pulls out while I work and goes away when I am done, i think that is my favorite item so far!

I stamped my "Create" letters, but I think I will paint them solid black, so just more little things to work on!

Happy Birthday Honey!

Yesterday was Charlies 52 birthday!

I bought a dress and took him to the new M casino and resort for dinner and some gambling. It is a fancy smancy place, very nice, love the feeling and it was not all stinky and smelly like older casinos, too far for us to ever go to again and the buffet was not that great the stuff charlie eats was all dry, chicken, turkey...but what I eat was very good, seafood salad, prime rib, mash potatoes all very good, you get beer and wine with your meal, and they had creme brulee at the dessert section, nice!

I bought him a hose reel for his air hose in the trailer, a new fossil watch and a shake maker so he won't drive to sonic and waste money on 5.00 shakes, if he is going to eat them at least I can save us hundreds of dollars by making them at home!!
