Post Weekend

Well, I did spend some time out in the scrapbook room like I planned on, and yes I did clean like daughter #1 wanted me to (well kinda, I cleaned and straightened a couple of shelves) but none the less, it was cleaner than before, for about an hour! Then I decided to finish my tulle wreath, which is pictured below. I don't think it turned out too bad. From the street though, the brown doesn't show up as well because of my brown door. Too bad! I'm not changing the color of the door.

I also gathered all the cards I have been making and organized them in a box. I have a lot! I think maybe I should back off of making general cards and maybe focus on Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. I'm pretty covered in all other matters.

Daughter #1 and I did go the the Make-and-Take at Scrapbook Art this past Sunday. They have a variety to choose from so, I made a birthday card, a Halloween card, a Thanksgiving card, a Christmas card, and a card that I will probably use for Independence Day (although Daughter #1 thought it would make a cute baby card for a boy).

Quick card

Below is a little card I created for a friend of mine that is retiring.  I'm going to try and get out to the scrapbook room this weekend, daughter #1 says I left it a mess, so I will probably spend some time cleaning and straightening up.  Also, there is the make-and-take card class this Sunday at Scrapbook Art so I am going to try and make that. So, hopefully, I'll have some more pictures to post next week.

Crafty Weekend

Spent Friday night in the scrapbook room and finally, put together the rosette pumpkin I made last fall. Got the instructions from Archiver's and used the Martha Stewart scoring board.

I also started a wreath for my front door with orange tulle. I haven't finished it yet, need to run to Joanne's and get some brown tulle for the top then, I'll take a picture of it to post.

We were really busy on Saturday doing some end of the summer chores and then we attended a birthday party for my niece's one-year old, Dominic. I quickly threw a card together using my 3 Birds Cricut cartridge.

Sorry about the fuzziness of both pictures, I used my iPhone and I have trouble keeping the camera still.
