Weekend Rewind

Hello to a new week! How was your weekend?  We didn't do anything too exciting but here's a recap just the same.

Saturday morning my sister and I went to my friend's house to stamp.  She's a Stampin Up! consultant and hosts a monthly stamp class at her house.  We used to go monthly and then the babies came and it became more difficult for me to leave them alone for a couple hours (hello breastfeeding babes!).  I haven't breastfed Tenley for a a few months now but there always seemed to be something else going on the nights and mornings she was hosting so the last time I went was when I was pregnant with Miss Tenley - that's at least 15 months ago!  It was long overdue for us to get our stamping on and goodness did it feel good to be creative again!

I think this one is my favorite of the group - love that dragonfly!

After getting my creative juices flowing again it makes me very excited for Andy to get the basement done so I can have a dedicated space for my stamping, scrapbooking and sewing.  We have big plans for a little space for me and I can't wait!  You know when it's done I'll be sure to show and tell.  In the meantime, think something like this:
A scrapbooking workstation. Pros: very clean and straightforward.  Cons: Small worksurface, not much room to set aside an in progress project while you work on a different one.:

Speaking of that basement renovation, that's what Andy was working on Saturday.  He's making progress!  It's hard to get too far too fast when you only have a couple or a few hours here and there to work on it but it'll get done when it get's done. :)

Saturday night we hung out in front of the TV watching football and basketball.  It's funny how a few years ago I wasn't that into sports, now it's almost all we watch!  #momofboys :)  

Sunday we didn't have much planned. We were chatting about what to do and then Andy got a phone call from his parents - his dad needed to go to the ER.  Andy's mom doesn't drive and his brother wasn't able to help so Andy took off.  A week and half ago Andy's dad had surgery to remove a tumor from his bladder - Bladder Cancer. :(  They think they got it all but he will have to undergo chemo treatments. Luckily those treatments are 'mild' and he won't be sick or lose his hair.  Unfortunately he has to have them weekly for 6 weeks and monthly for 2 years after.  It'll be a long road but could be much much worse.  So, the ER trip.  He was having complications and needed a ride.  It turned out to be minor and they didn't spend their entire day in the hospital, thank goodness!

The boys were supposed to go to a skating party for 4H but because of the nasty weather coming in (ice!!) we decided to skip it this year.  They were pretty bummed but better to be home safe than out on the roads when it got slick.

The rest of the day consisted of laundry, mopping the floor, and watching more basketball and football.  

I hope you all have a great week!


  1. Your cards are so pretty! The dragonfly is my favorite.
    I can't wait to see how you design your creative space. I know you will do an awesome job with it!!

  2. Love the cards and your plan for "your space". I wish there was a place in our house for a crafting spot for me... it would either be in the utility room or the screened in porch both of which are never the temperature of the indoors but more like the outdoors.
