Crafting Weekend....

I spent the entire weekend crafting....aside from eating and sleeping (otherwise known as being tossed about in a bed with a pre-schooler....). I did four cards and seventeen layouts!! Of course, I'm starting the Katie plan, because I did a two page layout three times in identical fashion...and I did the same layout with alternating colors for the twins' third birthday. But seventeen is a good number, methinks! *grins* I've been scrapping out of order, but am finding that this gives me a more creative outlet. I will scrap them as they "speak to me."

Aaron's been doing things around the house. Our house is nearly all painted now, which has been no small feat, because he's been doing this mostly himself. He has another coat to put on the trim and some siding to replace, but it's coming along! Pretty nifty for a one-man show. This morning I left with a big pile of stinky mulch on my driveway. He'll have fun with that.

Collin's away this week until Wednesday for Cub Scout Camp. This is the first time he's been away from home without family...ever. I'm excited for him, but a little nervous that I can't just call him if I want to. Funnily enough, I was one of the only moms at drop off yesterday who wasn't all up in their kid's face, giving them last minute instructions. All those Alphamoms would definitely tell me that I'm a slacker mom. But then again, I did pack all of Collin's clothes in zip lock bags (did you know they even make three-gallon sized ones with handles?) and made sure to pack four changes of clothes and soap and stuff. Aaron managed to get it all into his backpack, though. That wasn't going to happen for me. We'll see how it goes.

Anyway, not much else ado Chez Byers. Hope you all have a lovely Monday!

You crafted all weekend?! I did a little of that at "bead camp" and am now trying new things. My bead stff is spread out, my stamping/scrapbook area is a horrid mess, I went to the knit store in Broad ripple for their ging out of business sale nd have knitting bags not put away.

I DO have crafters ADD. Maybe I should get off the internet and be productive and clean.

It just started pouring rain so I think Noah will be in soon to bother me.
