just stuff.

I can’t believe it’s already wed. I mean, seriously, I blinked.

Last night we did our last store visit of the year. We were at this cutest store called “Lucky 15”. It really is a find. Meghan, the owner has a real flare…and she has some really cool stuff in there. I love how she merchandises… everything in her store is organized by color. So, you walk in and there are these beautiful color sections. It totally makes sense to me, because that is how I scrapbook… I go to my stash and pull a bunch of stuff that is all in the colors I want to work with. granted.. I love to see big “heidi swap” sections of product… (selfish, I know)… but her store looks so awesome. If you live here, or you are visiting- it’s a must see. She made Capri this beautiful little knit bear…it’s so amazing, so cute. I am impressed.

Last week, I started back working with a trainer. I have been running, and that has been going really well, but I decided that it would help to do some weight training for a few months to try to get some tone back.(since I totally did nothing my entire pregnancy). All I can focus on right now is the PAIN that is resonating through my entire body. I have a 2 story house, and the stairs are an issue. The pain is a serious slow down. my trainer.. her name is beth.. she keeps telling me that the best thing for muscle soreness is cardio. there is no way cardio is happening today. hopefully tomorrow. have you ever heard of mapmyrun.com? if you go there, you can totally figure out routes to run, exactly how far it is.. you have to check it out.

We made a pretty amazing discovery this weekend. Sat, eric and I decided that something had to be done about our closet. it needed that major weeding out of old clothes and shoes and everything else that somehow ends up stashed in there. In the process, eric found our very first camcorder, and there was still a tape in it. We were amazed to find the first year of Colton’s life on that tape. Everything from him learning to sit up, crawl, clap… to his first few steps. I couldn’t believe the rush of memory, and emotions associated. It was SO cute to watch him watch himself as a baby. It reminded me how important video is. I don’t think we have taken ANY video of Capri yet… bad mom!

Ok…
So maybe you have seen the little presentation that I created to put on the big picture website…it turned out cute. You can see it here if you haven’t. (go into my class description on the big picture site). the big picture class is almost full.. and I am really looking forward to it. I am loving how it is coming together…but it was so fun to figure out how to make that little presentation! So… I decided to do it again.. and announce the photo contest winners with the same kind of presentation… so look for that link in your email today. It’s going out to the newsletter data base today. If you know you are signed up, and it doesn’t come, maybe check your junk mail. It’s fun! I totally love the possibilities of the internet.

    Loved looking at the pic winners. Dh and I just weeded out our garage(6 long months of doing nothing was scary to look at). The bear is adorable.

    I’m IN!!! Just registered for the class today and I am so excited! Hubby is giving the class to me for Christmas, along with a new scanner so I can scan all of my works of art! Deck the halls with amazing layouts, fa la la la la… ;o)

    I have GOT to go check out that store. I just recommended it to a friend and I haven’t even been there yet.
    Good luck with the trainer. I don’t exercise too much because it hurts. :o) I know it’s suppose to hurt, but who really likes to hurt…on purpose?! But then I’m over weight so my opinion doesn’t really count. :o)
    What a treasure to have found that video!!!! http://jolenegeorge.blogspot.com/

    I went to Lucky 15 when we were in AZ for Creative Escape and loved it! So many neat things there. Good luck with the trainer…I am so needing to do something, but have no motivation. And isn’t it fun to watch old family videos? I love it!

    *sniff* the link to the newsletter is not working, I have not received it in my mailbox and I couldn’t find the pictures to vote on either… Anyone that can help me?

    Heidi – I signed up for the big picture class. Sounds amazing and I can hardly wait for it to start!!!!!
    One quick question to bother you with: any suggestions on where to find the Krylon paints? The stores listed on thier web site don’t carry the mini acid free paint you use. I soooo want to get my hands on a bunch of cans! Thanks a bunch 🙂

    That bear is adorable. That video sounds like a great find. Don’t you just love when you find things like that?

    Hi Heidi…just had to stop by and tell you that I got a big ol’ grin on my face when I clicked on a couple of scrapper’s blogs today and found my name listed right under yours on their favorites or inspiring blogs. Made me feel like I was really something. =) Like you’re the Queen, but I got to sit in the Princess spot. I should probably go scrap a layout using our picture from Memory Trends…and lots of little jewels, huh! Just thought that was cute- you could probably care less. =) Have a great weekend, and Happy Thanksgiving in case I don’t leave another comment til then. (You know I’m here more than I let on, right?!)
