Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #151


TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek of the week – in the rearview mirror of This Scattered Life.

I spent most of last Saturday at the Yarn Fest in Loveland, Colorado. Which means that I now know that the city of Loveland is not actually anywhere near Loveland Ski Area & Loveland Pass that we live near. The city is in the opposite direction – made even further when you start off heading in the wrong direction. <Sigh>.

Totally worth the scenic drive. Next year I plan to go back and take some classes. This year I just wandered around, completely overwhelmed by all the great vendors and their wares. There were giveaways and demonstrations. The creative ideas were zooming around in my head as I saw all the vibrant yarns and felt the fibers.

I had the same feeling there that I get when I’m in a fantastic book store or library. Want all the books. Want all the fiber. Must leave before my plastic gets overworked.

Don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about the Yarn Fest and Tommyknocker Brewery soon. And, of course, it’s time for an update on our Debt-Free in 3 series. Can you believe it’s already been a whole year? Time is flying by much too quickly.

There is always time for sweets though. My daughter accompanied me to a blogger brunch at SHINE Boutique on Sunday. I was really surprised at how affordable everything was. I’m definitely going back for the earrings that I should have gotten while I was there.

Check them out if you’re in the Denver area.

SHINE Boutique is a space dedicated to building a community of women that are intentional about uniting in our love for inspiring internal light and love. Everything from supporting local fashion designers, to cutting the sizes out of the clothing (sizes are color coordinated smallest to largest), to building an open community space where you can work all day gives the consistent message of self acceptance, grace, and self-love.  – SHINE

And then check out my Cinnabon Inspired Cinnamon Rolls. SO YUMMY!
