Hello again dear blog, sorry for the delay!! I had an unexpectedly busy weekend this past week,and when I say it was busy, oh boy was it busy, but it really helped that it was fun too! I planned on having a new post on Thursday, but... then I had a meeting for my friend Jeannette's fund. On Friday I had another idea for a post, (which I must say is pretty fun and will add some new interest) but... it never happened ;) ! Well Saturday came, and I traveled off to Kutztown, PA with my mother in the passenger seat, to go to their annual Folk Festival. It was my first time going there ever, and it was actually really fun. Lots of interesting PA dutch foods and crafts, and of course I got some cute stuff at the antique market (*show ya later!) Since we arrived there a little late, we recieved free tickets for another day, so I think I'm gonna head up there this week sometime. On Sunday, I was off to this
restaurant for my cousins birthday. Scrumdidilyumcious!! I'm tellin ya, when you bring a big Italian family to a big Italian restaurant, you get one funny sight. My Uncles, never learning how to properly speak in a low tone of voice were shouting across the table at each other. Now when I say shouting, I do not mean in an aggressive manner, but more so in a "it comes naturally" sort of way. You see, there has always been such commotion throughout my Grandmothers kitchen on Sundays ( along with every other day of the week) for all of our lives, that everyone just learned to talk over one another. We all had a blast, and of course our stomachs were very happy as well!
Today was an absolutely gorgeous day here in PA, and I decided to spend most of it outside since it felt like it was Spring again... ahh Spring!! I sunbathed for about an hour, got really tan (what can I say, I'm Italian!! ;) Then I watered my plants, checked on my greenhouse plants which seem to be doing pretty well except for those Bells of Ireland.. Darn those Bells of Ireland, they never grow for me, and Oh how I love them so! I then traveled indoors and started a creation inspired by this wonderful artist. I have seen them made by many bloggers, but I just love hers. She has such talent and a beautiful eye for details. Anyhoot, not having much, even though I went to Michaels again yesterday and I have closets full of craft supplies which I'm too afraid to use, I created this piece which I call "Bella" for my sister, who is a beautiful and talented woman. Once I realized the right way to make those little swirly thingy's and glued and glued and tore the paper, and cut the paper... I came out with this piece. (* Please note, credits go to khurst for the butterfly.) I am really pleased with how it came out, and when I told my sister I had made something for her, and then finally found the time to give it to her, she loved it! Okay well I hope you all enjoy the photos I took, and I promise I will update before the 4th!! Wishing you beautiful sunny days, and some crafty inspiration until the next time!!
