The highlights from the weekend, mostly random stuff.
Friday afternoon: We got J's big gift on sale at Walmart. Love rollback.
Friday night: It was cold, like 14 degrees. Yikes! Still no snow or snow flurries for me though. I never did my Christmas card photos either.
Saturday morning: We hit the sale at Toys R Us. We only got 2 toys though. J is very into Thomas the train and there are better deals on line.
Saturday afternoon: Went to several bakeries trying to order a Firetruck birthday cake for J, no luck.
Saturday night: Complained about the cold again. Tried not to think about the thermostat at 69 degrees. Wanted to cry about the thought of having to use the bathroom, the toilet seat was like ice!
Sunday morning: Rough, no sleep for me or J. Lots of tantrums, J's too.
Sunday afternoon: Finished this layout, called around to bakeries. Decided to give up, and make cupcakes myself with toy firetrucks on top. Apparently a firetruck cake is really, really stinking hard to come by. Note to self: research cakes next year first before deciding on a theme.
Sunday night: Cold, decided to bundle up in 2 sweatshirts and pants with 2 pairs of socks and the heating blanket on my lap while I scrapped. Discussed personal space heater with dh while he laughed at me.
The only thing I finished this weekend:
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Patterned Paper Oh Joy in Yuletide and Merry & Bright, Cosmo Cricket Jack Black board buttons; White Bazzil Cardstock; plus American Crafts thickers and ribbon; Maya Road Chipboard Hearts; Colorbox Scarlet ink; Sukara white gel pen.
Instructions: Cut Patterned paper and arrange on white cardstock. Apply ribbon, then add photo to the top. Secure ribbon with buttons from Jack's world Blackboard. Detail buttons with while pen. Ink chipboard hearts in red. Apply thickers as the title.
I'm off to do some laundry, since now I have to wear multiple pairs of clothing once the sun goes down. I want to make sure I have enough. Anybody else's dh into having the house as cold as a fridge? I hope you have a great Monday!
