Monday, monday

Mondays are not nearly as much fun as Fridays. I did manage to get a layout done from the new Studio Calico kit Fortune Cookie:


I still have a couple of things in various stages of completion. I've got my sister's get well card in the works, a journal that I want to cover and start using asap (because my memory is only getting worse) and a January layout that just needs pictures. I just didn't do as much as I was hoping to this weekend, it was such beautiful weather. I did clean a level of my house, 7 loads of laundry and emptied the dishwasher 5 times, but I know that doesn't count. :)

Friday was lots of fun. Traffic was a little bad on the way, so it seemed like it took a lot longer to get there than it did to come home. I met Nicole and her daughter and Cindy Liebel and her daughter. (Cindy has pics on her blog). We shopped for a little while, hard for me because J didn't want to stay in the play area along and he didn't want to do what I was doing. I wish I would have just put him in his stroller on one of my many trips to the car to get something to distract him with. I think he would have felt more secure and I would not have had such a hard time with him. I knew that the paper and stickers would blind me and make me forget important things. I walked around like "I've only seen images of that online!" It's been far too long since I went to a LSS.

We all went to Chick-fil-A and had a nice lunch. The owner of the store came with us and offered me the opportunity to teach if I wanted. I thought that was really neat. And then we drove home. I wish J hadn't been so cranky, fussy and feisty, but I guess that's the way it goes with small children. I had a good time and I hope we can do it again soon.

J and I are off to the play group here in a few minutes. I'm hoping for a better Monday than last week. Have a great day!

PS Does crayon come out of pillow cases in the wash? Hypothetically speaking of course?

hmmmm, don't know about the crayon on pillowcases, but i do love that LO!

Sarah said...

Great LO! I am looking forward to my kit! Worse case scenario for the crayon, it can be ironed out. Hope all is well and that you could get out for some fun on Friday!

Kristin said...

Close To Home said...

this is one of my favs of yours! i think i just said that about the last page you had posted LOL! hope you have fun at the play date!

(i think you got a heck of a lot done this weekend---the dish putting away and the laundry alone! that's a lot!)

Susan Beth said...

Hypothetically speaking, maybe, depends on the color. Spray with Zout or Shout or whatever your pre-wash is and you have a chance. Love the layout! I hope you are able to take the opportunity to teach! You would be great at it.

Denise said...

Wowza! That layout is amazing. Crayon? Hmmm...not too hypothetical I am thinking. Wish I had advice!

Davinie said...

Love how you worked the SC exclusive papers with your branch!

Rita said...

I can't remember the last time I was at an LSS! Gorgeous LO...those SC papers are so pretty! Can't help with the crayon on a pillowcase, but I have removed it from many walls :)

Jody said...

Usually I am complimenting your wonderful designs but today your journaling blew me away (the design is so great too!)
As for the crayon? My girls were big fans of markers on walls. lol
