Well, on Friday night, the weekend looked like being a bit of a disaster as Stew was due to work a mad big day on Saturday, meaning another one-day-weekend for all of us. However Saturday dawned gloomy and drizzly. Hooray! Work was cancelled and the Pyne family rejoiced...
In the afternoon we went over to Heather's house for 4 people's birthday party - Heather, Heather's Mum & Dad, and Heather's best friend Brandi. It was loads of fun and a good time was had by all.
I arrived home to a surprise - a fellow SU! demonstrator from SCS had sent me this month's special stamp set "Reason to Smile" because I had been moaning on Splitcoast that I forgot to put it on my order. She said she'd pop it in the post to me free of charge. All I have to do is pay it forward someday. So I'm looking out for good deeds to do. Such a nice surprise!
Then I caught up with my Google Reader (how awesome is Google Reader?!) and saw I'd got another honourable mention on 55CCT! Awesome! Finally, I checked on here, to find I'd had 658 (!!!!) hits... The Online Card Classes ladies Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire had selected this card and this card as examples to show the techniques learned in class. So flattering and exciting. There isn't a lot of instant gratification or recognition as an SAHM so it meant an awful lot.
Today we went to the Vintage Source - a monthly flea market and antiques thingy. Bought a cute little side table, allowing us to finally get rid of the oval coffee table from hell. When we first arrived in the USA we were given a budget to furnish & equip the entire house. Well, needless to say some of the decisions we made on the million trips to IKEA have been regretted, including the coffee table. It is GOOOOOOOONE now though. Phew!
Anyway! I've done another couple of challenges for Apron Strings' Pinterest challenges:
100.100 (Yep, I'm all finished! Woo hoo!)
Pinterest Challenge #15. Spritzed this one with that glimmer mist that I keep forgetting the name of to make it look a bit more festive. So loving Raspberry Ripple!
Inspired by Pinterest Challenge #13. Another good scrappy Christmas card. Love this one, I think I may crank a few of these out!
The only Pinterest challenge I haven't done this week is the Subway Art one (#11). I may have a play this evening.
