Creative Friday

This week we had Creative Friday on Tuesday, since Jill will be in Freakin' Eagle Mountain tomorrow with Andrew. Interestingly, though it had only been a few days since our last get-together, we both agreed that we were ready and that it was not too soon to convene again. Creative Friday is like that.

We enjoyed the valentine m&ms that Ciria sent expressly for Creative Friday. Sweet!

Alisa sent us some CF good mail. So fun to open a package for both of us! {photo by Jill}

Check out these adorable Eiffel Tower cupcake picks and way cool E.T. magnets. We were both smitten. Thanks, Alisa! {photo by Jill}

And speaking of cupcakes, I printed out some cupcake tags that I downloaded from Bake It Pretty. I didn't have the exact right circle punch, but I was able to make some work with my scalloped one. (I put one on a gift for a birthday party Lucas was going to yesterday and thought it looked just plain happy!)

We had Tex-Mex Nachos for lunch (leftovers from Monday's dinner). This is one of those recipes that really is fast and easy, even for gad-about slow cooks like myself.

Jill had this card on top of a stack of photos, and it kept drawing my attention all day. I find it painfully cute and wish I had thought of it myself.

Eva had to show Jill the Bizarre Dinosaurs book she got for Valentine's Day. It has some dinosaurs in it that we've never heard of, and when you consider how many dinosaur books we've read and movies and shows we've watched, that is pretty remarkable.

Even with all of the history these two have, they still like each other. Mostly.

One of the self-portraits that Jill took showed only some of her hair and cheek. She was fine with this. (I would be, too.) I prefer this one that demonstrates how extremely photogenic and pretty she is, even when she feels too unsightly for a self-portrait!

This is a really great photo of the both of you!

Your lunches look so divine each week. Seriously.

Is it sad that I just realized there are punches that cut those tags out so perfectly? I really am challenges in this area. They are very cute.

I prefer the self portrait with Jill in it as well...you both are very photogenic and it just doesnt't seem right when one of you is missing...

I laughed over the "tag carcass" label--those up close shots you take sure can make anything look glamerous!

Jill said...

I think your comment about Eva and I still liking each other "mostly" is funny. I noticed that you failed to mentioned that she has asked when I would be leaving during our last two Creative Fridays! I'm glad her inquiries are motivated by her desire to have you all to herself rather than just to have me gone!

P.S. I'm bummed I hadn't seen your pictures yet when I did my post, yours are great!

"tag carcasses" makes me smile every time I see it. What a funny, funny term. I think of cow bones and termite skins.

Susan said...

I too, am entertained by "tag carcasses". Great description.

*note to self* bump up retirement so I can participate in this venture...

Would you,could you share your lunch recipe?

I love your creative Friday posts always.

Could you give me a source for those magnets. I have many in my family who would fall for them...

I love the look on Eva's face in the photo with Jill. Priceless!

I'm laughing at Eva's face and inquiries into Jill's departure. Hahaha.

I love that your friends send you supplies for CF. It's like you two are being sponsored!

love you!

I also laughed at the "tag carcass" label.

I love the self-portrait and don't know why Jill would have felt unsightly. You both look so pretty, and the colors you're wearing give it a rosy glow!

So sorry to hear about your dad's mom.

Tag carcasses...awesome.

Jill and Eva, what an awesome relationship. It reminds me of the odd couple. Too funny.

With Creative Friday on Tuesday, that means that the next CF will be almost two weeks away! Yikes.
