kern river here we come and my first wallet

Today, I'm really excited to share with you something I sewed last night!! My husband has been bugging me to make him a wallet forever! Yes, I know he could have easily purchased one, but you see, my husband is a very particular person. It couldn't have velcro, it had to have this many pockets, etc., etc.,. Soooo, he asked me if I could custom make him one! For now, we will have to call this wallet I made a prototype. hehehe! You see, my sewing machine is old and wasn't cooperating. There was frayed edges, lose strings, bunch up thread,, you name it. But he loved it!! Isn't that sweet? He's pretty much perfect! I told him as soon as my sewing machine was back from the shop, I would make him a more proper one. He said he was amazed at how quickly I made it. He thinks I'm super crafty, and supports everything I do. He tells me that I'm amazing, isn't that just awesome!! I simply adore him!!! Below is a picture of the "prototype".

Next, friends, I am leaving on Friday with my family to our yearly Kern River camping trip!! I'm super excited for this!! So, so excited! It's a trip where we walk away from our daily stresses and worries. We drink beer, go hiking, play games, fish, go in the river, everything really. Another thing, there is no reception there. I know, I know, some of you are probably hyperventilating right now, but honestly I'm okay with it. Im pretty much glued to my phone all the other days of the year, so it kinda feels nice to just hit the off button. Gives me the opportotunity to focus on spending real time with my family. Plus, I love them, and they deserve my full attention! Below are pictures from our trip last year!!

If I don't talk to you soon, Happy Memorial Day weekend!!
love, nely

wedding day

It's Friday, Friday. Is it just me, but everytime I hear the word Friday, I immediately think of the Rebecca Black song! It's driving me crazy!! But I am excited that the weekend is here!!! I'm looking forward to Saturday! My precious momma is coming over to help me plant rose bushes. You see, my mom has an insane green thumb, like crazy!! Her backyard looks like a jungle with all the different species of plants she has!! Then theres me, absolutely no green thumb! Like zero, zilch nada. That's why shes coming over to help me. I love, love, love, plants and flowers but I can never keep them alive for more than a day. So, I'm glad she's coming over! I love her so much!
I also wanted to share with you a layout I created using the *scarlet begonias* kit from the Pink Ninjas!! Have I ever told you how awesome it is being a Pink Ninja?? Well, it is. Like amazing! And I completely love all of you fellow Pink Ninjas! This world is amazing, fun, be yourself, caring, crazy, and just simply rad!!

Today, I wanted to share with you a ring I created using the *scarlet begonias* kit from The Pink Ninjas! In the kit, comes three different colored rose cabochons!! They are sooooo pretty. I really love them. This coming from a cabochon loving person. ;-) I used the pink one, glued it onto a flat backed ring that I had and voila!! Super simple but super fun!!
