Not quite…

I had some seriously high expectations for productivity for this weekend in the crafting area.

 My 2nd craft show ever is on April 9th and have my work cut out for me.  I have very little made and am starting to bug out about that fact.

April 9th is going to be here in the blink of an eye. I need to be pounding out the craftiness…

Had a rough time of it today…

Decided to “re-finish” some frames I have in my stash that I either someone gave me (JM & MS) or I bought on the cheap…

Refinishing and distressing fun!

While letting all 11 frames dry, it was time to get to work on the frames.
My goal for the day was to make teacher, graduation, and football themed designs.
Began searching for some new quotes and hit a GOLD MINE!  You’ve got to check out this awesome website I found!  It’s a huge database of quotes on any topic you can think of… A scrapbooker/crafty individual’s DREAM. 🙂

One of my new-found favorites…

I hope your dreams take you to the corner of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities and to the most special places your heart has ever known.


Moving on….

had a hard time getting started and an even more difficult time figuring out combinations that worked… Here’s the few I came up with.  Not too happy with the results but don’t hate ’em either.  Someone else may like them!

  1. The object of teaching a child is to enable them to get along without their teacher. -Elbert Hubbard
  2. The same as #1
  3. A teacher affects eternity; one can never tell where their influence stops. -Henry Brooks Adams


And a couple more…

  1. Same as #3 above.
  2. Be the CHANGE you want to see in the WORLD.  – Mahatma Ghandi

Only ended up finishing 5 frames today…

Definitely not the numbers I was hoping to pull out, but what can ya do…

Hoping the rest of the week and coming weekend are much more productive!

Did you have a productive weekend?  Hope yours was not quite as unproductive as my Sunday was!

Wonderful Weekend

I had a wonderful weekend… At least that’s what I’m calling it 🙂

What made this weekend so special you may ask?

A whole lot of little nothings made it special

  1. On Thursday, a dear friend and I went to the Cheesecake Factory in Southside Works for dinner where I enjoyed a DELICIOUS grilled portabella mushroom sandwich and she got a chicken parmesan sandwich.  They were too good for words!!!    We then went to one of my most FAVORITE places on earth…. Joann Fabrics… to pick out fabric for a SUPER cute tote bag that one of the parent’s at our school is going to make for us!  Can’t wait to show you pictures of it when it is finished!!! Much needed and well spent time together!
  2. Finally got a good night’s sleep Friday night, even though I woke up early Saturday morning. 
  3. Saturday I got to watch my 8 month old nephew while my little sister and the rest of our family went to find out the sex of her baby that’s due in July.  IT’S A BOY!!!!  Three boys for my girly, girl sister.  Perhaps that was someone’s way of helping her save some money 😉 Love my nephews (4 of them) and my niece.  They are the greatest gifts!
  4. My older sister came over for a visit Saturday evening.  We swapped stories and she shared her ever so wise sisterly advise, not to mention the goodie bag she had for me too.  She’s so good to me.   
  5. I FINALLY took down the rest of my Christmas decorations.  Yes, you read that correctly.  It’s almost March and my decorations were still up.  Stay tuned to an upcoming post about that 🙂
  6. I rearranged my living room!  Woo Hooo!!!!  Tweaked the layout a little bit, shuffling furniture around.  I’ve come to the conclusion that I need another piece of furniture… A comfy chair or a small comfy love seat would do.  I’d also LOVE to get a new coffee table as the one I have now is in sad, sad, shape.
  7. I organized my CDs…. This was a HUGE task, but it allowed me to dig in to some music that I haven’t listened to in a LONG time.  Good to hear some of my old friends blasting from the speakers…. Not too sure my neighbors would agree though 😉
  8. Went to church Sunday with my mom.  Last Sunday was a rough day for me…didn’t even make it through mass. Which apparently was evident to a couple of fellow church go-ers as they asked if I was ok, one sharing that they said some prayers for me.  How sweet is that?  I am thankful.
  9. Got a call from one of my closest, long-time friend’s daughter yesterday inviting me to her grandma’s house for her mom’s (my friend) birthday dinner.  Again, how sweet is that?  She’s my family.  So lucky.


 All in all I would definitely say that was a good weekend.  Doesn’t take much some times. 

I’ll take what I can get….Especially when friends and family are involved!

What did you do this weekend? What made it wonderful?
