♥Hubby is at our northern property this weekend with five of his friends, a wood cutting permit, chainsaws, steak and beer (I know, crazy combination!) so Carrie and I had girl's night in! Our good friend Janae came over and we had a fun time crafting and chatting and snacking and laughing.
My kind of Saturday night!
♥ ♥ ♥
Here's a look at my work space ~ working on Stone's beach book layout. I'm loving the color combinations and working with these adorable pictures my sister took!
Janae worked on a framed piece for her kid's bathroom.
Carrie worked on an art journal she's creating while taking an online class (Tell Your Story)...no pictures of her project because "it's kind of private." When we get together with friends there's always an exchange of art stash. Janae had a random glittered "C" in her stuff and gave it to Carrie. This girl loves her name and the letter C. :o)
This may seem like an odd thing to throw in, but a big distraction early in the evening was this large gecko lizard outside our kitchen window (see him on the upper right side of the fence?). I know, he looks small in the photo, but he was huge in comparison to what we normally see. He was out there most of the evening, along with a smaller lizard doing their "spring thing" right in front of us. It was fairly interesting and a little disgusting to see two lizards mating on our fence. LOL. We tried to get a closer shot outside but the lizard couple was shy and ran away at the first sight of Carrie and the camera on the side of the house.
Last week I bought a new point-and-shoot camera and it has a "smile detector" feature. Have you heard of this? Pretty crazy technology, actually. With the "smile detector" on you don't have to push the button to take a picture - it automatically senses an actual smile and takes the photo. (Why you would want this I'm not sure...???) We tested the different settings - slight smile, medium smile, big smile. Carrie would point the camera while we frowned, then as the corners of our mouths went up ==FLASH== the camera would go off. We found this extremely hilarious and had [too much] fun testing it out. Of the 20+ photos we shot, this is the only one that came out somewhat "normal" of Janae and I.
Good times! For sure.
How was your Saturday night?
