good stuff

I decided to forgo the to do list this weekend. I was feeling a bit stressed out and tired, so I decided I needed to relax. So other than laundry, I didn't do much productive stuff this weekend. I did however, scrapbook. I managed to create a mini album and 3 pages. I used up a lot of scraps and odds and ends from older kits. Here's a page inspired by one by Celeste in my favorites folder at SIS. Gotta love scraps for making cute little flowers!

Yesterday I also felt like cooking. I made banana chocolate chip muffins and homemade macaroni and cheese. They were both delicious! I wore my cute new apron created by Andrea. I haven't taken a picture of myself wearing it yet, but it's on the to do list. You should definitely check out her etsy store. She has cute bags and aprons. I commissioned this lovely diaper bag for Stephanie's baby shower gift a couple of weeks ago. It was a hit!

Speaking of Stephanie. She and I had a lovely breakfast date this morning and both ate delicious pancakes with berries for her and apples for me. Yum! After breakfast, we headed to Super Target for a little baby shopping (her) and a few grocery (me). It was a lovely way to start my Sunday!

Since I failed to post on Friday, here's my latest 52 card. This week was a free week, with no prompt. So I chose to proclaim my love for spring time on my card. Spring really is wonderful here in AZ. I have a garden full of flowers, the road sides are covered in wildflowers and the weather is incredible. Too bad allergies come with all the blooming and those heavenly scented orange blossoms!

I so love these little cards for using up bits and pieces I have laying around on my scrap desk. These flowers were made from little pieces of leather scraps I had sitting in a bowl on my desk. I love using things up!

Here's wishing you a happy spring week!

Your little layered flowers are adorable! Cool bag for your friend, too. Sounds like you had a wonderful Sunday!

Love the layered flowers and your card card. Great quote from Robin Williams. i am in full agreement with that.

That bag is beautiful. I will check out her Etsy store.

Ahh, sounds like a lovely weekend. I'm glad you knew it was time for a "break" and that you just enjoyed yourself. After all, all of the to-do's will still be there tomorrow, right?

Thanks for the shout out :). I really loved making that, I think it may be my favorite bag thus far. And I DO want a picture of you in your apron too!!

Happy new week!
