As I'm wishing for time to speed up, Chris is praying for it to slow down. He takes the DAT on Friday. I'm sure he'll do GR8T. Then it's birthday on Sunday, so at least that's something for him to look forward to.
Time is a weird thing.

Look closely and you can see another airplane at the top left corner of this picture below. I guess they wanted a view, too.
Mt. Rainier is tall enough to rise above the clouds that rest on the Northwest 90% of the year.

Make sure you go here:
And get some of these:
While you wait in line you watch your doughnuts bake. Chris, Allie and I split the assorted dozen and we scarfed them down in two minutes flat. They were delicious and still warm! My favorite ones are the cinnamon.
Last Thursday we took a trip to Seattle. I saw some neat things including, but not limited to, the following:
We seriously spent about an hour walking around the store. There's so much to see! Every section of the store is decorated in some way I never would have thought up myself. This wall is partially covered with layers of flattened paper cups. I knew I should have saved all those sacrament cups from when I was little :)
This room is covered with torn and curling bits and pieces of vintage wall paper. So cool!
The wall next to the winding staircase is covered with original canvas paintings. The arrangement and colors look really cool against the yellow wall.
Felt is all the rage these days in the scrapbooking/handmade community. This bird is stitched together using pieces of fabric and felt then stuck to a book cover.
The back wall is crazy cool. Who would have thought to cover a wall with chalkboard, draw shelves and books and add some real books here and there? I wonder how long it will stay like that.
If I knew how to sew, this is the first thing I would make for myself: I feel inspired!

Here's what "they're" saying:
"Those of you clamoring for an Apple tablet may finally get what you've been waiting for. According to a MacDailyNews source who leaked wireless iTunes a week before its official announcement, we can expect a sort of 'MacBook touch' in October. And the source wasn't light on the details, either:
Think MacBook screen, possibly a bit smaller, in glass with iPhone-like, but fuller-featured multi-touch. Gesture library. Full Mac OS X. This is why they bought P.A. Semi. Possibly with Immersion's haptic tech. Slot-loading SuperDrive. Accelerometer. GPS. Pretty expensive to produce initially, but sold at "low" price that will reduce margins. Apple wants to move these babies. And move they will. This is some sick stuff. App Store-compatible, able to run Mac apps, too. By October at the latest."

Here is some extra info about it:
If there was a coffee shop close to where I live I'd be all over those stir-ers to make one myself. But seeing as how I live in Provo UT, I have no idea where the nearest Starbucks is. If I were in Redmond, however, I'd be in stir-er heaven because there's a coffee shop LITERALLY on every corner! Malm? Dald? Allie? Find me some of these please?

I think buttons are probably my most favorite embellishment. They look great on cards, layouts, frames, bags, clothes, clocks, shoes, hats, walls, EVERYTHING! These images are from Michelle's Button Jar blog.
You can even make necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings out of them.
Buttons come in any shape, size, color and texture imaginable.
In my free time I'm sticking a bunch of them on the wall above our DVD collection. I can't wait to get my camera cord back so I can post pictures of my own!
