Well....it's happy for me. I decided to take a vacation day just to relax. First thing first.....I was very productive this weekend. I went to Chandas house on Friday to "create". I left home about 10:30. When I arrived we unloaded my car and Chanda showed me around in her "scraproom"...really, it's a store.. LOL After showing me everything...well not quite everything, but as much as she could. We left to take her daughter to work and have some lunch. We ate at one of her faves...a Japaense spot that was DELISH!!!!! I've added it to my faves as well. After eating we went to Hobby Lobby. Did a little damage; more than I intended considering I was just goint to her "house" to create. So, we sat in traffic a little and finally headed back to the house. We started up around 4:30 or so. It took a minute to unpack, but once I started...it was ON and poppin'. We listened to good "OLE SKOOL" music, drank wine, ate cheese and crackers and got in the zone. I made about 25 cards that night. Don't be fooled though. I usually make templates for my cards then fill the greeting in at a later time. So, that night I just completed what I started. I had a ball and enjoyed myself very much. Chanda also finished some cards but the internet kept calling her name so she didn't get as much done. (might have been the wine too)LMBO I met her hubby and son and their dog. Nice family!!! I was also able to create on Saturday/Sunday. So I would say my entire weekend was productive. I'm adding photos from my creativity this weekend. Hope you enjoy. Until later......

Today is a gloomy Sunday. I'm actually working on some Mother's Day cards. My weekend hasn't been that productive as I was out shopping and enjoying the 70 degree weather Friday and Saturday. As usual, I went and bought more supplies that I don't need. Well, just thought I'd let you know what I'm up to....until later.

Bamboozled you ask..... Well, I met Chanda in October 2009 at an Employee Craft Fair at work and we have since maintained contact. Chanda, who is also a creative soul, tricked me into shopping with her today. I learned that we have several things in common and that this could develop into a creative, collaborative friendship. Chanda "coerced" me into spending money on more scrapbook supplies (something I promised myself I wouldn't do) considering I don't have room for the things I already have. Anyway, it was a dreary, rainy day and we trekked through it going from Archiver's to JoAnn Etc to Hobby Lobby and back to Archiver's. We had a ball despite the weather. We felt a little guilty about buying more "stuff", but that lasted all of two minutes. I purchased some things I've been wanting to try and some things I didn't need. We ate lunch, or should I say dinner because it was about 4:30 and that was pretty much my first morsel of food for the day (besides the bag of chips I stopped to get at QT on my way to meet Chanda). All in all I had a great day with another creative soul. Thanks for a fun filled day Chanda!
