The Color Run! Salt Lake City

The Kaleidoscope Tour aka, The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.
Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since our debut event. We have more than tripled our growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013.

Announcing the 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour! We're hitting your cities like never before... Amazing new participant gear (t-shirt, headband, wrist band and sling bag) , Fresh music, and Color crazy race attractions. This is 5K Magic like only The Color Run can do.

Whether or not you have participated in a 5K before, this is one of the most fun ones to participate in that I know of! I got to do The Color Run 5K with my husband a couple years ago and my cousins who live in AZ and friends that I have in Vegas have done this run before as well. It's all over the US so check and see what location is closest to you.

You can run or walk and you get to go through 4 color zones until you get to the finish line where there are lots of people dancing and cheering , music and maybe even a banana or an orange. The energy of everyone participating really keeps you pumped up. Its a great event for kids of any age as well as adults!

Cricut Explore Launch Party!

Last week at the Provo Craft HQ, Cricut had their launch party for their new Cricut Explore. Open to anyone to go and my sister Laura came along for the evening.  The event started at 9pm which I loved because it means I could go to the YW activity from 7-830 , Laura came over shortly after 830 and we were over in South Jordan at 9. Worked out perfect!

Many treats for us to eat as we crafted.  I didnt get a picture of the sodas and popcorn over to the right. I just love the banners in this area, so cute!

We all got to sit at a laptop that had a Cricut Explore hooked up to it and start playing! Cricut employees were walking around the room helping us, answering questions and offering advice and tips. So handy to have their help!

One of the things I made was some vinyl words to stick on the back of my cell phone.

I also made a card and see the tool with the pink top? I believe it was scoring my paper but you can also stick a pen in there and have the machine draw any font or design you want. Pretty amazing! No excuse for bad handwriting anymore.

Getting ready to watch the Cricut Explore get sold out on HSN. They had 5000 available and were gone in a matter of about 30 minutes.

 Watching , watching and getting excited the closer the number in the box in the right hand corner of the screen got to 5000

I dont have a picture of me on the phone trying to get through to order mine but here's my true confession for the day, I ordered one! I was in the 4800's by the time I got through after being on hold for a bit. If I didnt get through, I was not going to be too disappointed but if I did get through, I figured that it was meant to be. I have never ordered anything on HSN before. It took about 10 min or less to place my order. Super super excited for it to come and for what I can make and do with it. I love my Cricut Mini but it will be nice to be able to cut bigger things and have the capability to draw or cut any font I want as well as have the spot where a pen can go. Not to mention all the storage that is built in. I love also that there will be an iPad app to use with it eventually as well. Super awesome!

What do you craft with? Did you order the new Cricut Explore too?

LDS Young Women Bottle Cap Necklaces

The lesson I had today at church was about the Holy Ghost but the whole theme this month for YW lesson was about the Godhead. My friend in AZ recently blogged about a bunch of necklaces she made for her lesson and I thought they turned out so cute that I wanted to make some too!

- black cord (not pictured above) but I also used some twine that I had
- gluesticks but I suggest using stronger glue
- 1" circle punch
- 1" clear circle raised stickers
- 1" bottlecap lids
- 1" printables from Green Jello Salad on Etsy
- jewelry circle rings (not pictured)

Here is how one turned out.

I picked up 2 sheets of the printables at Walgreens and used my 1" punch to cut them out. It would have been awesome to create some printables myself but by the time I thought about it , it was after 10pm Saturday night so I figured I'd just buy them from someone who had already made them.

I also wished I had seen the post in time to order the bottle caps from eBay but I ended up going to Hobby Lobby to get most everything I needed that I didn't already have. Luckily  most everything I got was on sale for 50% off. Good timing! They had no bottlecaps with a hole punched in them already so Tony helped me do that part with a nail and a hammer.

I glued down the printable into the bottle cap and put a clear sticker over the top. I threaded the black cord through the jewelry ring and added a bead on each side. Tony did a cool knot that could be adjusted after you put the necklace over your head.

I gave them out at the end of the lesson and I think everyone liked them. Success!
