this weekend

So...just made chocolate chip cookies and I was wondering why they looked so different from the last time I made them. Flatter, larger, greasier. I re-read the directions. 1 stick (1 cup) of butter. Well. There was my problem.

I put 2 sticks (2 cups) of butter.

Good Lord!

Otherwise...I had a fun, productive weekend.

Last night I made these...to keep the Serenity Prayer in my mind...



...with some $5 frame finds I got at Home Goods - where has that store been all my life? I was in heaven! I used some carstock and patterned paper and printed the words right onto the paper. The frames were cool and had double panes of glass with a painted matt on each. Gives a real dimensional look.

I went to my LSS last night also...got Ali Edward's book about mini albums. Love it so far.

Ordered a whole bunch of photos online to scrap. Some are going in a mini album about this summer.

This morning, I went to the apple orchard. My favorite place in the fall. Loaded up on cider, apple wine and apples for a pie I'm baking Friday for my Girl's Night. (I will have to hold back on the butter)

Made some of these to sell at the craft fair in a few weeks....

Simple card with a rusted-looking metal snowflake charm hanging in scalloped window

"Christmas Magic" with some buttons and pattered paper.

Ribbon flowers anchored with a brad - got the idea from Nov/Dec Memory Makers

Simple card with a sparkly tree "button" and a the negative left from a star punch on a peice of cardstock. Added a little light blue chalk behind the star opening. Stamped "Peace on Earth" in light blue chalk.


Ended the weekend by making myself some Stuffed Peppers for dinner..hmmmm. Back to work and reality tomorrow. I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays.

Love your frames and cards in them. Very creative! The cards you made are beautiful too! Love the tree one! I feel the same way about Sundays. I love them but it's back to the same ol' same ol' on Monday which is a downer sometimes!
