7 Years! Time Flies When You're Married to Your BFF!

Happy 7Years of wedding bliss!  Well, that's mushy isn't it?  My hubby and I spent this past weekend celebrating our 7 year wedding anniversary.  We spent our entire three day weekend hanging out and trying to get stuff done at home.  We managed to slip away for an awesome dinner out, too.  This is a very rare thing...we normally have our 5 1/2 year old in tow!  I chose the above picture to post as it was taken last summer outside Charleston, S.C. (at Angel Oak) and was one of the best vacations ever.  I also decided on this photo because it pretty much says who we are.  I mean I look pretty serious, which I guess I am most of the time.  Some would call this "boring."  I wouldn't, but hey.  On the other hand, Doug (or "Dougster") looks fun and carefree...which, he is..most of the time.  He is actually a very postive, upbeat person.  In my line of work, this attitude helps, although, admittedly, I don't tell him about most things I see on the job.  I think he just knows when I've reached my limit and he is always just there for me.   He is a great husband and a great daddy! 
Photo credit goes to our daughter, Charlotte...you can probably tell she is quite a bit shorter than us...but she is a super photographer isn't she?!
NOTE:  Yes, this is the second picture I've posted of me wearing those sunglasses...unfortunately they broke last week!  I immediately went into a "level 9 meltdown," and haven't fully recovered.  They were (are) my faves.   

I can't wait to post the pictures of the great stuff I found during our Flea Market extravaganza!  I found a terrific desk to put in my studio, a beautiful dresser scarf, and a pair of white gloves, a la Jackie O.  I found the gloves and immediately thought they would look awesome with my Hepburn coat.  Speaking of the coat, I made a lot of progress this weekend, however I am sure I've gone wrong somewhere.  I pretty sure the mistake is somewhere in the facing department.  Here are some pictures:



I managed to sew the darts, which, I think, actually turned out okay, but the collar is, frankley, stupid looking.  When I tried it on and looked it the mirror, it reminded me of something...I couldn't quite put my finger on what, but tell me what you think:



Am I right?  Yes.  I must fix this or start over.  Enough said.

I hope you have a look at the "Dark" ATC cards making their way onto the blogs.  You can see all the participants at Blissfull ATC Swap.  When I recieve Leila's card, I will post it.  She'll then post the card I sent her.  Of all I've seen so far, they are all pretty creepy!

Toodles for now!



P.S.  I walked through two invisible spiderwebs today and I'm still itching!

What a cute picture of the 2 of you! And Happy Anniversary!!! I hope you had a great time and it sounds like you had a fun weekend. Many years of happiness ahead for the 2 of you!!!

I wanted to tell you that my Etsy store is on the left sidebar of my blog in case you wanted to see what's in there...Etsy shopping is super easy to do and I always mail things out within 48 hours, so you would get a package right away if you see anything you want from there.

I was really excited because I have also joined the Melange group which is a prestigious group of artists and I was so happy that they wanted me--yeah! So, this shop sure keeps me busy...

Wishing you a wonderful night and lots of happiness.
Also, did you see The Butterfly Project on my blog...The butterflies are going into a museum and I thought you might want to make one too...If you didn't see it, just scroll down my page for the details as I thought it was something you may want to do.
Love & hugs,
Cindy

Hi angela, congratulations on your anniversary, love the fun pix of you and hubby!
thank you also for your lovely comment on my blog.

Hey Angie! You didn't tell me it was your anniversary! Happy belated, my friend. Glad to hear that you and Doug enjoyed it. And that is a great photo of the two of you...Jeff is usually the serious one in our photos while I am the one making faces! Mostly it's because I hate photos of myself - they're usually awful!

I had to laugh at your reference to your coat looking like something from Star Trek! That's just too funny. I'm sure you'll get it right, though. You've got a great start!

Can't wait to see your "Dark" cards, too!

XOXO,

Cyndi
