I have been sick all day...not fun! I slept & watched tv all day-ish. This would normally sound like the best day ever, but I felt so yucky! I did, however, receive the best surprise today...a birthday gift from Natalia!!! She knew I was getting crafty, but had no idea it had turned into a full blown obsession!

Look how spoiled I am =) 

The cutest case filled with all the perfect tools for making stuffs!!! 
Thank you Natalia! My friends are the greatest!

Sick and all I finished one project today.
I have to say I like it much better now. The green just wasn't doing it for me. 

I'm out, good night...

Today I am 23, doesn't it sound so much older than 22? Yikes!

Remember the pretty Hayley's bag? This scarf was inside, it's lovely!! I also got some new supplies. My mom picked 'em up at Archivers. Thanks momma!! Oh & my grandparents gave me time =)

Since I'm new to the blogging world I figured today is the perfect day to share a little about my life...

People in my life -
My mom. She is a crazy, awesome person!! By far the coolest mom ever. 
Yep, she's sledding!
My dad. If you ever wanna hang out outdoors, my dad's your man! He loves to hunt, fish, and trap. 
KW, Ooitz, and Little Sky. KW is HILARIOUS!! Ooitz is super SMART!! Sky is so SWEET!!

Daxton, my boyfriend. He is a total sweetheart, I love, love, love him!!! He has been so supportive of my crafty habit & makes me smile everyday. -did I mention he is an amazing team roper? & he rides stock saddle too... =)

7 Random Things-
I absolutely LOVE singing!! & I am HORRIBLE at it, just ask my brothers. =)
I am missing three knuckles; two on my left hand & one on my right hand.
I worked as a sage-grouse technician for one summer. All I did was drive around tracking and trapping these birds!
I am deaf in my right ear & hear a constant ringing.
I HATE spiders...eww, I get squirmy just thinking about them!
I am a chronic speeder. I cannot help it, Sadee (my little car) just loves to fly along.
I like to add the numbers 12, 40 or 89 when explaining things; e.g., 'The wind made it 89 times colder...'

Best Parts of Being 22-
*Graduating from college...I miss my friends soo much tho.
*Las Vegas trip with Daxton to watch NFR & Criss Angel --> this guy is crazy legit!
*Two trips to D.C., I was a sophomore in high school & I passed on a trip to the grand opening of the Native American Smithsonian to play volleyball. I knew I would have other opportunities to travel back and I have.
*Getting to know my grandpa, he just recently moved back to the reservation.
*Traveling to visit Gramma Edie second semester...loved going to the Epler lunches with her.
*Getting Daxton to ride the Panic Plunge in Cashmere, WA & the Ferris Wheel at Scheels in Reno, NV =)
*All the small things: dinners, unplanned trips, afternoons just lounging, pretty pictures, jokes with friends, meeting new people, great opportunities.

Have an awesome day, I know I will!!!

So Many Stuffs!!!

I went thrifting today & did really well! I'm so excited & can't wait to get crafty...

This would look so cute on a shelf with some old bottles and the perfect black & white picture! 

I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! & I'm hoping to find a couple more. Wouldn't a sepia photo just add the finishing touch?

I stopped to visit Marlyn yesterday and she had several frames for me. Dirk & her like to hit up the auction on Saturdays and she's been browsing for me =)

Old & New Treasures

I love gift bags with tissue paper, doesn't it look so perfect & pretty?! 
Thank you momma!!!!

I found these treasures while junking, all were sitting on shelves calling my name...I couldn't leave them behind, so I rescued each piece.  
 tin can

 wood box

 wood blocks

& I'm not exactly sure what this was, but I like it much better now.

I made my first sale today! 

Given, it was Daxton's mom who bought my stuffs...but I'm so excited!! My first craft fair is in 20 days, I cannot wait!!

It's been a great day, more tomorrow.
   Live Happy...

Happy Saturday!

Today while in Elko for Ooitzy and Sky's games, I stopped to visit two of my favorite shops. And...I think I hinted enough that my mom got me the present I wanted =) we'll see tomorrow!! The wind made it 89 times colder than it really was, but it didn't stop me from finding a small antique/craft shop. I found the stamp alphabet letters I have been searching for and some pretty lace.  

Lace always makes projects softer with a touch of elegance...

My last purchase at Hayley's was this gorgeous chandelier, it now hangs in my living room. Isn't it to die for?

I have an old ladder on my wish list, it's fun to have something specific in mind when makes the find so exciting!

Tomorrow I will post a few of my stuffs.

                good night..
