a day at yucandu...and a giveaway winner!

Like I said in my last post, my sister, my mom and I spent our MLK day at the neatest art studio :) The studio is called Yucandu and if you live anywhere near the St. Louis area you must check it out :) I'm pretty sure I want to have my 30th birthday party there :)
Look how cutie pie this place is! It gives me ideas for my art classroom:

My sister was working on mosaic-ing initials for her and Matt:

I did a mosaic as well, a two-hook plaque for Adam and I to hang our keys on. It was sooooo cool because they had jars and jars and tables full of the coolest found items and other little items, and tiles to use. They also had a shelf with china on it that you could pick out and shatter for the mosaic :) so rad!

What a fun fun day :) I feel a total creative energy creeping in that I love!! I am going to do a post later about all of the cool projects that my blog friends are doing and how you can join!!
Also, I wanted to congratulate ELLEN...

who won Margot's awesome owl collage giveaway!!! jealous!
Ellen, email me your address :)
love you!!!
AND, I still have not had a claim on Suzanne's giveaway. If the winner does not contact me by Wednesday night, I am going to choose another winner for her gift certificate!!
Ok, happy Tuesday.
I am -4 pounds since WW and Adam is -9.2!! I am soooo proud of him, and us :)
