I have done ZERO crafting this year. That is mostly because I have been painting. So here is a work in progress to share.

Awesome! I am so pumped. Smiley

I went to Michaels today and blew my gift card. It was awesome because they were doing 25% off everything after 3. I snagged a 3 pack of covers, 6 pack of folders and two packs of rings. I already have a planner I love, so I plan on this being my management system for all the assorted papers and lists in my life. I am SO EXCITED and I am saying it here because my husband doesn't get it.  Tongue

Did anyone else know about the Happy Planner system from Michaels?!?!?! I have been lusting after Levenger Circa system since I was a kid, but I have a gift card for Michaels, so my dreams may come true!! Have any of you tried the HP system?

Finding this is making me want to swap even more!!  Grin

26  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 23 Gallery! on: October 13, 2016 09:47:06 PM
Tree got home safe and sound last week. However, I am currently sucking at this whole adult thing, so I am just now getting photos up. Big fat apologies to my awesome partner who literally made my kiddos day.

My daughter is in first grade, and when I signed up, my partner agreed to tailor the whole box for her. This was all part of my goal to get her to learn more about other places. So here we go!

Box opening...


And happy to see Tree in her new skirt!


Very carefully reading the card. She read it all by herself with no help.  Cheesy


One of two things that tied for her favorite in the box, a tie-dye tee. She LOVES tie dye and wore it the next day to "show all her friends".


Her other fave thing was a kinder surprise egg. There is no picture of the egg because she INHALED it, but here was the toy inside.


The awesome album. It has sooo many cool pictures and brochures from everywhere she went. I am super jealous Tree got to see Chihuly glass.



Eamea also shared her favorite book from her childhood (so sweet!! <3 ) as well as a bag made from fabric she picked up in Egypt.


Tree was lucky enough to have the opportunity to sit with a master portrait artist, Eamea's niece.


She also got a new wardrobe. The St. Louis Blue shirt was a funny surprise. Three years ago, my husband went to St. Louis and watched them play. It is the only pro hockey game he has ever been to. We still ahve his souvenier cup from the game.  Cheesy We also got a magnet from Scotland. Tree got to go to friggen SCOTLAND!!!


Lola also got a button up shirt turned apron (cool!) and a new pillowcase just for camping.


I think it is safe to say we got a great partner, and both Little Visitors had a great time. Smiley

Ugh, I am so sad/mad at myself!! I COMPLETELY missed the mini 12 days sign up.  Cry

I am not a big fan of the stocking swap, but I will be keeping my eye out for something else Christmas themed.

I have been really behind sharing pics too! BUT Aurora has been having a grand time.


Mid July, her and I went to Tippet Rise, a new place where sculpture has been installed on a working ranch. You can do walking tours, bus tours or attend live musical performances. We hiked nearly seven miles together, then listened to a non-traditional percussion performance that it turned out two of my friends were part of. Here, she is pictured taking in an Alexander Calder sculpture.


On the way home, we got food at a summer must-stop, the Fort Rockvale Quick Stop. She stopped and talked to the resident bears and than we shared jalapeno poppers and a huckleberry shake.


During MontanaFair, I did a live paint. She came along to supervise the setup.


Last week, we also took a trip to my home state of South Dakota. On the way, we stopped in Deadwood at Chubby Chipmunk. They have the BEST, massive, luster-dust covered chocolates. I sadly did not realize the pic turned out so blurry. Sad



Of course, we had to stop at Wall Drug. For the food and jackalopes.


Through a change of plans, we also ended up at my favorite clothing shop in the whole world.

Thankfully, now that school has started, I think everything is going to calm down a bit. We still have some fun cool things to go do, but (hopefully) I will be better at posting pics in the home stretch. Smiley

Can I just say I am SUPER jealous Tree got to see Chihuly glass??

Aurora has had a more mellow few weeks since backpacking. She has been helping me declutter my house in preparation for a new puppy. But soon we will be packing up to head out on one last trip! &#128516;

I will share some new pics his afternoon when I am not on my phone.

I am so jealous of Tree right now...that shop looks awesome!!

Aurora has been having fun as well. Two weeks ago, she came with us on a family camping trip to Emerald Lake.




She also stopped with us at the Fishtail General store to get food and a gift to bring home after her travels.


Just this past weekend, she also went backpacking. My husband and I hiked up to Blue Lake in the Crazies. Here we are surveying the part of the trail we already covered.


She also approved of the very small tent.


And a view from (almost) the top. We started at 6,500 feet elevation and topped out at 8,300. This picture was taken around 8,000 feet. The bottom of the valley where the trees turn into a field is where the truck was parked.
