Weekend Review

Had a great weekend!  It felt like a normal weekend for a change, don't know why that is but I'll take it.  Saturday morning we took Bella to a class that was sponsored by the parks and rec department and held at Rose Hill Manor in town.  The class was titled 'For the Birds' and it was about identfying birds and seemed right up Bella's alley as she just loves to watch the birds.  Having it at Rose  Hill Manor was an added bonus as that is the Hisoric Mansion of the state's first govenor and is a beautiful setting.  She had a lot of fun, met some new friends and even got to paint a bird house to take  home.
It was an absolutely beautiful day-the weather was just perfect!

Next we went to the scrapbook store and took advantage of some of the pre-closing sale.  Everything in the store was 25% off and some of the prices had been reduced.  Even the fixtures were for sale.  We didn't get there until close to 11:00 and the store opened at 10:00 and by then most of theBazzil cardstock was gone!  One woman bought over 600 sheets of paper!  (I heard her counting it.)  Anyway, I got some good bargains and then headed home. 
The big news is that I finally got to do some work in my craft room!  It feels like its bee so long since I've been able to spend any time in there and it was so good just to get something done.  So what did I do?  Well, I finished all the favor tags for the wedding that I am working on as well as the chair signs.  Here they are:
Front and Back
All packaged up and ready to go!
The wedding colors are Ivory,Chocolate Brown and Avacodo.  You can't see it in the picture, but the wooden signs have a bit of a shimmer to them and beneath the brown there is a very thin line of gold paint.
Here you an see it a little better.

I also made a few cards:
And that was about then end of my craftiness for the weekend, then I went to bed.


  1. Sounds you had a good weekend. Yaahh you got some crafting done, looks really good too.
    I so want to do some crafting, but first I have to make a trail to my craft room. With all the purchases I got in the States I soooo need to find room :)

  2. Love your cards....your Mr. and Mrs. signs are cute! Sorry to hear about your LSS closing up....So Cal is really getting hit hard with that right now...such a bummer.
