Month in Review

I can hardly believe it has been an entire month since I blogged. I've not done anything crafty, but I have of course purchased some new fabric. I was fortunate to run across a shop that still had some Sandi Henderson "Meadowsweet" in stock and couldn't pass it up. So, without further delay, here is the month in pictures:

We spent the first days of our vacation (after a very long drive) in Estes Park, CO to visit the National Park. It was kinda cold and rainy, we couldn't see the tops of the mountains and saw one small patch of blue sky in the 3 days we were there and met up with the rest of the Augustus clan, so of course we had lots of fun! It was kind of ridiculously beautiful and odd for June. You can see there is still a little bit of snow on the banks of the lake. I think we were at about 10,000 ft. here. We wanted to drive all the way through the park, but they closed the road due to snow (about 10 in.) and low visibility.

When we got to Utah we got to meet a new cousin! Whitley and Brent's little guy Grant. He is super cute and of course, the girls loved it. They thought he was soooooo adorable. They're right :)
> We went to our (and by our and mean mine & the kids) first rodeo. It was fun, although I didn't really care for the calf-roping. It was just a little rough. I did however thorougly enjoy the Mutton Busting and the cow milking. Very entertaining.

After we got home we celebrated Vivian's 5th birthday with a girls only fairy party. I think I'll make a whole post about that later . . .
The next weekend I got to have lots of fun doing makeup for a wedding. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE doing bridal makeup, and this bride was super cute and fun! And last, but not least I'm so excited, in September my sister is hosting a prom for adults! I'm really excited and have been mulling over what to wear. I think I will probably wear mostly black, because it's me. I have however been watching the shows from Paris Couture week and got some major inspiration. I LOVE the silhouette of the first dress, and the second dress, the jaw dropping hand painted silk pansy, is a Dior. Of course, I will never own one, and I don't know that I really have the desire. I think instead I will attempt making a Dior "inspired" dress. I'll keep you posted!
