Coming Soon

Where has this month gone? So much has happened. Maybe I will get around to posting . I have been working on a new project lately and that is why I have not been blogging. I am starting a new blog. I don't know what made me want to start over, but why not start now. I'm having a lot of fun building it and it should be done real soon. Stay tuned!

Amanda's Shower

Last week the Hansen side of the family celebrated this cute girl in the pink shirt's engagement. My mom, sisters and I threw a shower for my cousin Amanda. After the shower we had a family BBQ. It was so much fun to get together and celebrate with Amanda. Here are a few pictures from this past weekend. (happy 4th of July by the way)

Hogle Zoo

Thought I would share a video of when we went to the Hogle Zoo. I hope you enjoy it. It makes me miss my nieces, but luckily I get to see them tomorrow! I'm headed down for some hot weather. Pretty excited about it.

Love for Pinterest

Have you heard of Pinterest? Well if you haven't, you best be checking it out real soon. It seriously is the best way to store stuff that you.... well love that is. Mine is starting to fill up quite fast. I love that you can customize your own boards/categories and pin items you like in them. The best part of it all is that it automatically connects the source of where you found the image so you can go back for reference.

Pinterest is the best inspiration keeper invention ever! You have to be invited so email me if you'd like to be invited and we'll get you all set up. Join me on Pinterest. I promise you will not regret it.

DIY: Kid's Journal

Check it out. After 10 days I decided I should blog again. I actually have been wanting to for the past few nights but have been super busy with things. Things such as apartment hunting and designing a CD cover for a client that is releasing his music in July.
Okay onto the kid's journal. I've been wanting to make something and I was looking on Liz's blog and saw this cute DIY art kit she made for her little girl for their trip. My little 4 year old niece is smart and knows already that traveling is no fun so what a better idea than to make her a mini journal/scrapbook she could make on her drive back home from visiting Grandma!

I did a lot of the same things as Liz. This is what is in my kit that I made for her:
1. Crayons
2. Journaling cards and tags from American Crafts.
3. Photos of her and me together.
4. Mixtape also known as washi tape.
5. This to That glue runner.
6. Stickers
7. AC Cardstock
8. Coloring pages from Crayola (they're free)
9. Patterned paper from Pebbles and American Crafts

I'm not sure how well it helped time go by on her trip home. Maybe her mom will tell me after reading this. :) It was super fast and easy to make! If I can do it, you can definitely do it.

June is a good month. I tell you. I can feel it. Oh what? You don't remember me? Well let me take you back the past couple of months and remind you of who I am. Let's rewind a couple months.

-As much as I wanted to blog I had to realize blogging would have stressed me out and having finals and all.... not a good idea. So for the month of April I focused on school and came out with descent grades.

-Went home for Easter which was pretty much awesome.

-I haven't done a whole lot, but it's exactly what I needed. A break that is. I have been hanging out with friends and relaxing. Yes relaxing. Never thought I would hear that word.

-For memorial weekend my friend Soleil (above in photo) invited me to go with her and Dillon to St. George for some fun. We went to Gunlock and watched the guys jump off the cliffs into the water and then we went to Red cliffs where we hiked up the canyon in the water where we could slide on the rocks into the pools of water. It was super fun! Then we enjoyed some skimboarding as well. Dillon sure did keep up busy. The photo above is pretty much the only one I got on the trip.

Now back to June.
There is a lot I want to do this month and a lot that has to be done. Lots of adventures will be happening this month and I hope that I can take photos to record them. I also have some goals in my mind, but if I want to accomplish them I'm going to have to write them down. That will probably be my next post since I am too tired to take time and finalize them right now. Definitely past my bed time.

Well it's good to be back in the blogging world. Hopefully you will be "seeing" me around more often. That is it for now.

Friday, April 8, 2011


It's not like I blog that much anyways, but I am taking a break until the end of this month. Too much crazy stuff going on with school that I SHOULD be focusing on. If I write this out and tell you, then it will be easier for me to not feel so obligated to blog. Does that even make sense, but when do I ever make sense? :) See ya around.

Bucket List

I'm dreaming of a cherry on top kind of a Summer. You know what I mean? With lots of activities to keep me sane. While we were driving back from a trip, the roommates and I decided to come up with a list of 50 things to do this summer. A list that we want to do before we die going back to school and winter again. We now have something to look forward to do and not be bored this summer. As you can tell, we still don't have all 50 things as you can plainly see. Help us get there by leaving a comment and telling us what other things we can do.

But first off, I am lucky enough to have my niece over tonight to have a slumber party with me. We're enjoy watching Tangled and eating popcorn. We also painted her fingernails and toenails. It's so fun to have her in town.

Now back to the list.

1. Las Vegas (for Andi's 21st B-day)
2. Bonfire
3. Lava Hot Springs (float the river)
4. Camp
5. Bear Lake
6. Sleep on the balcony
7. Concert
8. Boyfriends (ha!)
9. Real game
10. Mocktail party
11. Bee's game
12. Rodeo
13. Carnival
14. Demolition Derby
15. Run through the sprinkler
16. Festival of Colors (oops... missed that one)
17. Side walk chalk
18. Photo shoot
19. pool/soak up the sun
20. 4 wheeling
21. Sand dunes
22. St. George
23. Hike Stewart Falls

Lots to do

It's Monday again. I can't believe another week has gone by. The faster these weeks go, the sooner I will be out of school. Yeah, that's right, 4 more weeks! This week is going to be super busy. My sisters and I have a craft fair coming up this Saturday in Evanston, WY. So if you for some reason happen to be in Evanston, WY, you should definitely stop by. It would be great to see you there. On my list of "to dos" is to take some pictures of a few of the things that we have made recently. We have some new things to put in our booth so come check it out!

Today was a crappy good day. My friend Jordan and I found time in between classes to get us some frozen yogurt. It made us a little happier. Today I had Pistachio, Taro, Red Velvet cake batter, and Toasted Coconut topped with a tid bit of brownie bites, cookie dough, kiwi, strawberry, and mango. I couldn't choose and they all made me happy. Good thing I have been going to the gym lately.

Here are a few of my recent obsessions:

1. Loving frozen yogurt (particularly Yogurtland as you can plainly see)
2. Freshly ground peanut butter. (especially w/triscuits and honey)
3. Veronica Mars .... again
4. Google Reader
5. Make-up
6. Cooking
7. Mustard Yellow and Gray with Chevron.
8. Mini Cadburry Eggs (Also referred to as my "Pride and Joys")
9. Pickles
10. The gym (hard to believe that i'm saying this but I love how it makes me feel!)
11. Dresses with leggings (thinking this is what i'll be wearing most of the summer)
12. Creating just about anything

Dove or Bliss

Which one do you choose? I thought I bought a bag of Dove chocolates and then realized it was Hershey's Bliss. Did I know that Hershey's made something like Dove? No. They were good but not near as good as the creamy Dove chocolates and they don't even have the cool sayings on the inside of the wrapper. A total rip off. :) Here are a few of the ones that I really liked from the chocolates my parents gave me for Valentine's day. I like to think that my parents knew what the wrappers said, so I'm taking it as if my parents said this to me.

Lists Lists Lists

It has been decided. I am going back to the life of living on lists. On that list will include blogging more frequently. Starting tomorrow I will have the biggest list I have ever had. Hopefully the list thing will work and it won't be big for too long. I know this is probably the most boring post you have ever read, but it's more for me knowing that it's down on "paper" and that the blogging world knows about it. I best be sticking to my word. Coming up next are photos and a video of my Las Vegas trip. Stay tuned. Above are photos from my phone from my trip.

Logo Revamp

Hello there! I'm trying really hard to be a better blogger because I love the idea of blogging. I just don't have very many interesting things to blog about. Just recently I thought I would try out a new logo for our Three Sisters. We are still alive if you are wondering. We have a show coming up on April 3rd in Evanston, WY. More details on that later. Okay back on track.


Now I need your opinions! What do you think? Should I keep with the old one or go with the new one? Leave a comment by Saturday and I will pick a winner and send them something handmade. You won't want to miss out on this chance! I would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks guys. :)

P.S. Kendra and I have come up with some cool new products to sell at the next show! Stay tuned between now and April with some sneak peaks! I will give you one hint: I will be making things that are not baby related. I'm excited to start making these goodies and to show you!

Super Bowl

I'm not much into the whole football scene, but after watching a few games this past season I think I have come to enjoy it a little more. Maybe it's a social thing, I don't know. My friend Darryl invited me over for the Super Bowl and a BBQ. Since I know he can make some mean hamburgers, I couldn't say no. Wondering what that white oozing stuff is coming out of those burgers? You guessed right, stuffed with cream cheese and Jalepenos.

Excited, anxious, nervous, or scared? I didn't know how I should feel about what was about to happen.
Sad to say I could not finish that burger. I had about a quarter of it left. Should I or shouldn't I be proud of eating that much? 'Twas good and was definitely the highlight of the Super Bowl. Oh and I did root for the Packers from the beginning because my sister told me to. :)

Tis the season for Scrapbooking

Yes I am still alive. I have a lot of stuff to blog about, but I haven't been taking any pictures so there won't be any posts. Sorry. :) Well we have been super busy at work with making samples for CHA that just happened this past weekend. It sounds like it was a pretty good one. Here are just a few of my cards, layouts, and altered projects that I did with American Crafts new lines. Have you been to the American Crafts blog lately? This past week we just showed all our new lines that we are coming out with. They are giving away scrapbook stuff all the time so leave a comment on some of the posts and you never know.. they could pick your name! It's that easy! I didn't put any of these in any particular order so they are all mixed up. Sorry. Enjoy!

It was a great excuse to have a party, not only because it was 1.11.11, but it was also my b-day. When does that ever happen? Pretty sure it happens once a year, but never will it be the same exact digit. Yeah I know November 11 will be the best ever, but I'm pretty sure 1.11.11 was the best day ever for me. Thanks to my family and friends for celebrating it with me. I didn't take as many photos as I hoped to. It was quite a busy day. To be honest with you, this was the only one I took. Darlene took a few so maybe I can try and still them from her.

Healthy Start

I bought this cookbook about a year ago and I love it! I kind of forgot about it and pulled it out last week and made a meal plan with Andi. It's great for students/single people. I love how the majority of the recipes are single servings-which is great for people like us. Most of the ingredients are what you eat on a daily basis. Just start buying the fat-free version of things instead. It's all about portions as well.

Yum Yum Brownie Muffins: (I make them into cookies instead)

About 45 calories per cookie. Not too shabby.

1 box devil's food cake mix (about 18 oz)
One 15-ounce can pure pumpkin

Preheat oven to 400
Mix the 2 ingredients together. Don't add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, like eggs, oil, or water. The mixture will be very thick, so you might be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. Do NOT do this!

Spray cookie sheet. Use a small cookie scoop (I use my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop) and place about 15 scoops evenly on pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

In my picture I used a white cake mix because I did not have a chocolate one and it turned out yummy as well! I know the chocolate tastes just as great too. Enjoy!

I'm going to call this the Chicken Spinach Flatbread Pizza. I don't know the name. My friend told me about this one time and then I started throwing stuff on it. I promise it's still just as healthy. WARNING: this has lots of flavor.

1 Flat Out multi-grain flat bread.
1 can stewed tomatoes
a few shakes of Italian seasoning
1 tsp minced garlic
3 oz grilled chicken
handful of spinach
a few shakes of garlic salt
a small handful of mozz. cheese

Preheat oven to 375

Drain the can of stewed tomatoes. Add Italian Seasoning and minced garlic to tomatoes. Chop up so mixture is still chunky.
When the oven is preheated, put flat bread on cookie sheet and place in oven until toasted flipping occasionally. Not too toasted that it's hard. (you will finish cooking it with everything else on it.)
Take flat bread out of the oven and spread some pizza sauce on it. Then place chicken and spinach. Sprinkle garlic salt on top then add mozz. cheese on top for a finishing touch.
Place back in oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Cut in fourths and eat up! So good and healthy you'll want another one the next day and the next.

Let me know what you think. I just might keep posting new recipes on here that I think are worth trying. They are super easy and quick-just the way I like them.
