I had a terrific weekend. I left Friday afternoon and went to Arlington for the Great American Scrapbook Convention. I stopped at Recollections in Arlington, which is a scrapbook store owned by Michaels. It's super - why don't we have one in Houston? I'm starting my letter writing campaign tonight. I didn't realize they also own Aaron Brothers. They have a very cute paper mache star project that has paper on one side and look-a-like tin ceiling tiles on the other. I can't attend the class so I bought all the supplies from TenSecond Studios, along with the book, Metal Effects by Cheryl Darrow. It looks super - can't wait to try it! Next year I will definitely attend the classes - heard alot of good feedback. I shopped like a manic on Saturday morning - lots of good deals and things I couldn't go home without. Great loot.
I came home Saturday - my brother stayed with my Mom because Nancy was also gone Friday night. He said he felt like he was staying at a spa because of the master suite. It made me take a new look at my bath and he's right. It really is big and beautiful and luxurious. I want to appreciate it more often. I bought a beautiful sheer drape from Pottery Barn for my bed. I love the softness - it makes the bedroom magical. Love it.
Totally jealous of my best bud roomie, Jeanne who purchased a Canon 30D with several amazing lenses. Can't wait to see the result in September at Creative Escape. Definitely, on my wish list!
I used Craigslist for the first time to sell an office chair and it worked! Posted the notice yesterday afternoon and wahlah - it's sold! Pretty cool.
I watched the Sopranos ending last night and I thought it was terrific. It left me hanging on the edge of my seat. You didn't know what to expect... undercover FBI guys getting ready to arrest him or was he going to get whacked? I loved it plus of course Journey in the background... don't stop believing, hold on to that feeling... Loved it!
At work, I have to say I am totally surprised and very content. It's finally slowed down a bit so I can catch my breath. And I'm working for a good guy - it makes all the difference. They installed new carpet this weekend so I unpacked my desk - here's to a productive week!
