Park City Weekend


We (hubby and I) sometimes drive up the road to Park City to hang out on weekends when our kids are away visiting their other parents or off doing their own things. Our favorite thing to do there is window shop and check out the stores along the historic district. This past weekend it was extra fun because my husband is building a very, very large home (around 17,000 sq. ft.) on top of the mountain and I got to have the personal tour of the home, stand on the platform over the concrete pit which will be the indoor swimming pool, see the massive amounts of custom woodwork in this home and get a glimpse of the exclusive community it's being built in. I must say, you feel sort of insignificant standing on top of a massive mountain surrounded by huge vacation homes and towering aspen trees !

After the "personal" tour, we ate an early dinner at a quaint little restaurant on historic Main Street across from the Mary G. Steiner Egyptian Theatre which the Sundance Film Festival uses as one of its venues. Our only famous person siting was Mark Eaton, former Utah Jazz player, current business man, tv person
ality and motivational speaker. He is one tall drink of water. We laughed because it seems whenever we see famous people, it seems to be athletes ! Here are a few photos from our weekend:

Looks like a lovely day trip! I'm jealous. It's always nice to get away, even if it's not far away!

(replying to your comment on my blog) Thanks so much for your kind words! I can't stand baby and theme fabrics either! I searched high and low for cake boards- the only ones i was able to find had scalloped edges(which won't work since i'm covering it in patterned paper and not paint.) I picked up some thick insulation board today and am going to try to cut the size circles i need out of it! We'll see how that goes!!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
