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.
