I put the finishing touches on these two sweaters yesterday, both of which I started at the beginning of summer. I am very pleased with the finished products:

Life is still quite busy for me, but exciting things are happening so busy is just fine!


Busy Busy Busy August 20, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarahrmeier @ 9:22 PM

The reason the posts have been lacking around here is because I have been so very busy. The most recent reason for it was a two day trip to Milwaukee (about a 5 hour drive) for an interview for Pete that we just returned from this afternoon. I am currently sitting in my parent’s house dripping of sweat because they have no air conditioning. Therefore I thought it would be a good time to do an update.

Recently my job search has really been picking up and I am actually getting some call backs and interviews! Pete’s search is also looking promising with this job in Milwaukee which could very possibly lead to a relocation for our family. I am also volunteering with Zero Landfill Twin Cities. With all of this going on, my life has become quite chaotic.

I have made some fun card sets recently and have been working on setting up an Etsy shop, so stay tuned and I will get some pictures up early next week!


Brian and Kelly’s Wedding August 9, 2010

Filed under: wedding — sarahrmeier @ 2:00 PM

This past weekend…

Pete and I went to a wedding…

one of the nicest weddings I have ever been to…

the cake was the best cake I have ever tasted…

and there was an open bar…which could explain the large number of people on the dance floor at all times…

Congrats to Brian and Kelly – the wedding was truly beautiful!


Wedding and Thank You Cards August 6, 2010

Filed under: Cards — sarahrmeier @ 4:11 PM

Tomorrow Pete and I are headed to the wedding of a friend from school. The theme of their invite was “the love birds,” and it just so happens I recently made some cards with bird paper. I found a fun font online and switched out the wording from “Thank You” to their names. Here is the final product (the bird paper is Basic Grey):

This was the first time I went online to find different fonts than what I already have on my computer, so needless to say I was excited with what I found and made some more cards. Here are some thank yous with a font I am in love with – Angelic War:

Have a fabulous weekend – we are headed to a wedding on Saturday then Pete’s Grandma’s 80th birthday on Sunday!

Aren’t the nicknames we give little kids just funny? Faith’s include:

  • Faith-a-Roo
  • Faithers
  • Munchkin
  • Pumpkin
  • Stinker
  • Busy
  • Monkey
  • Darlin’

And these are the only ones I am listing off the top of my head. Here is an adorable picture I took the other day that I feel needs a nickname caption:


Sweet Pea Card Set August 3, 2010

Filed under: baby,Cards — sarahrmeier @ 8:30 AM

I picked up this adorable sweet pea paper at JoAnn Fabrics about a month ago during a fabulous paper sale. The other day I finally got around to using it in this card set (in total there are 2 cards of each). The ribbon is also from JoAnn’s (on clearance) – I wish I had bought more but if I remember right, it was the last package. The ribbon had adhesive backing, so it was super easy to use (and no fraying edges)!
