Yes Sew Tutu!

Awhile back my best friend decided to check off running a 5k from her bucket list and asked me if I would join her.  I am sure you are wondering what tutu's have to do with running.  I will get there soon I promise.  I was looking for a way to get in shape and thought training for a 5k was a great way to do that.  After 6 weeks of mild training I met my best friend at the race and was super jealous of all the beautiful tutus these runners were sporting.  After a couple moments I decided to get over it and decided to run the race tutuless.  I was exhilarated when I crossed that finish line.  After that I was hooked.  I loved the whole race circuit and having a running number and all the people.  Everyone was so wonderful.  I immediately signed up for 5 more races.  I decided the next time I would have a gorgeous tutu to run in.

One Sheet Wonder Card Project

As it goes with most of my projects they start from something I have seen on Pinterest or YouTube.  I follow about 20 different card bloggers and love all the beautiful cards they make.  And more importantly how easy it looks when they put them together.  Take some paper, a few stamps, and in 5 minutes you have this gorgeous card.  Well, not so much in my craft room.  Take some paper, a few stamps, and three hours later have a card that looks like it was hit by a bus before being finished.
