August 21st was my Birthday and it was a great one.

I love my ice cream cake.

I found this little surprise in my living room with a note on it.
My boy is so cute!
I have been taking lessons from my mother in law for a little over a year and still have a lot to learn.

My mom, sister Heather, and little neice Ella came and visited me for my Birthday. My sister just moved to Los Angeles from Chicago and wanted to have some cute decorations for her little girls room. She had these white letters and we decoupaged them with lots of fun pink paper. I have never really done crafts with my sister and mom and seeing them in this environment was pretty funny.

My New Home!

Last week Ryan, Sushi, and I moved into our new home. It was a bank owned home so it need lots of work but we are very excited. I now have enough projects for a lifetime. The house is very mid century modern so it's going to be very fun to decorate.

I already bought this cool lamp to go with the mid century modern style.

My in laws came into town last weekend to help out with the house which was really fun and we got lots done. I bought a color called moss to paint our living room and well it ended up being green in the can and blue on the walls but I love the color so it all worked out. Once my house is in a little better shape I can take more pictures.

(notice the color in the pan)

We also have a nice little addition to our family. He is 8 months old and loves to play with his tennis ball, chase Sushi, and be held.

Now he just needs a name... so far we have Jin (like ginger to go with Sushi and he is orange), Sulu (like in the old Star Treks), and queso (he is orange and Ryan loves his queso).
Any more ideas?

Creative Organization Workshop.

I usualy try to post pictures of my samples before my classes but with my busy week I didn't have time but the class still sold out and went really well. I used our fun new Silhouette machine to cut out all the utensils for my cook book. This will be a fun book to organize all my recipes.

In college I did a bunch of etchings with utensils and it reminded me a lot of this book.

Welcome to California!

My sister Heather and her family just moved to Los Angeles after living in lots of fun places like Provo, New York, and then Chicago. My family has been really excited about it because now all of us live in California. I thought that my one year old neice Ella might need a review of all the Pabst family members and their pets so I made her a little book.

I think I am going a little crazy...

I just bought and moved into my new house and have not had any time to post stuff I have been working on. I have a few new projects I did that I will have to post once everything calms down. To
show you a little what I feel like I took a picture of what shoes I had on to run errands last week...

I didn't even see that I had on different shoes until I hopped in the car after my second errand and noticed that they looked different.
