Girly things and Weddings...

Maybe it's only me, but I'm so enamored with this UV-reactive nail polish that I had Rob take pictures to show you. It takes not quite 30 seconds for the colour to develop outside. So, so cool.

We're going camping in Prince Edward Island tomorrow - gulp - and hoping that we'll get our tent set up before the predicted rain starts. We thought about postponing by a day, but if we can get set up before the rain hits, we do have some activities (Haunted House? We hope!) we can do while we wait out the weather. In anticipation of spending a day at Shining Waters as well as camping right next to Cabot Beach, I went and bought my first bathing suit in years. Yeah. I'm not ready to talk about that yet.

Weddings are busting out all over around here, and the last few weeks have seen a lot of demand for wedding cards. Here's a bunch!

Trying to help the kids clean up their room - whoa. Where to begin. But, we said they'd have to get it done before we considered getting a dog, and I've just been making arrangements to visit a potential pet on Saturday, so it's got to be done before we go. I am not a popular lady around here at the moment.

By the way, once again, if you are registered & voting in the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol competition, my bloggy friend Meg has made it to the Top 10. I've reset the widget link to her new entry, and voting is open until Thursday. Go Meg Go!!

Hopefully I'll have a couple of posts come up during the week (if I've done it right) and also be around to visit before we leave...three days no computer = sad, sad Jessi.

I've never heard of UV-reactive nail polish but it's so cool! And what a great stash of wedding cards you have now. My favourite is the last one!

You've been busy lady!! The polish is fabulous. I'll have to get some for my students - they'll love it. Wish I were going to PEI - I just watched a video on it and the beaches look amazing.

Your cards are fabulous. I love the dress and tux (the 3rd card). They are all great. I like the yellow one too!!

Great job Jessi.

Have a great vacation.

Jessi, I am always amazed by how prolific you are--and everything looks top notch!! These wedding cards are super. I love them all!! Enjoy your PEI getaway. Even with rain, you'll be making lots of memories. Have fun!!

That nail polish is cool! I've never seen that. Your camping trip sounds fun, especially the haunted house ;) I love the variety of your cards--it's always fun to see your work! :)

So many fab cards! Love all the textures on your cards. And I just adore your quilled frame on the cake card. So clever!
