Paper flower pictures

Thank you Martha Stewart.

Paper flowers & thrown out backs

Yesterday was a nice relaxing Sunday. Free from work and too much thinking. The past few days have been crazy busy. I've been working 13 hour days up in Logan...away from Tom, which is highly disappointing. I have been getting a lot done though and learning a lot. Yesterday morning Tom was trying to get a banana off the ground and threw his back out. I feel so bad for him when it happens. He has had back problems for a long time and it goes out after it has been, unpacking, grouting, working at a computer all day, etc...basically all the things we have been doing the last few weeks. Kind of a bummer, but he will be just fine. Yesterday I got to paint some square canvases to decorate our bedroom. Our colors in there are orange and gray. It might sound weird, but I think it is really cool. We found a really cute bedspread at IKEA (my favorite store) that is white and gray with orange trim. We also got this sweet orange chair from our nice friends the Hunts. I would have never thought that I would be using orange as a decorating color, but I'm really digging it. My friend Kristee and Erin would both approve. I also made these really cute paper flowers. They are so fun I think. I am going to learn how to make a rose and tulip and daffodil and iris too. I want to start making them to sell out of cool paper. I think there might be a market for them. If not, I will just use them at my own house. :)

Anne Marie Hildebrandt Music

My mom bought me this piano music for Christmas last year. I love to play it...I'm not sure I'm in love with the style of singing, but the melodies are beautiful. She has done a great job arranging the songs. Check it out.

What's going on here?

Tom & I went down to Cedar City this last weekend to visit my old roommates. It was great to see everyone. There were lots of little kids running around that looked like little miniatures of everyone there, it was so fun. My roommates all have a blog on this site and I was convinced to start one up. I think that it will be a good way to keep in touch with everybody...only if I can figure out how to use it of course. :)
I will try to write once a week and keep everyone posted.

We just moved into a little apartment in Salt Lake. It is in a really great location and we are trying to get everything organized and put back together as quickly as possible. Moving isn't our most favorite venture, but we have survived it so far. We actually decided that we are never moving again...we are just going to buy the apartment building we are living in one day and expand the apartments as necessary. We think that is our best option. It is amazing how much stuff you collect over the years...especially when you are married.

Tom is working for his cousin at a graphic design firm downtown. He enjoys it, but we are waiting to hear from some of the other jobs we've applied to. It is annoying to wait, but everything will work out for the best I'm sure.

I am working on a research project on Visual Resource Management. I won't bore you with the details...I get a lot of blank stares when I start to explain what I'm doing. Just know that it eats up quite a bit of my time and I have to read and write a lot. :) I am also working on my thesis...sometimes...I need to actually kick that into gear a bit more. :) I should probably be doing that, instead of writing in my blog...but whatever.

We are having a fantastic time being married and having a lot of fun together. I also have a start to a website for my flower business. Have a look when you can

The server it is on is really slow, but it is a start!
I hope this will be a good way for us to keep in touch with all of you better! Have a lovely day.
