Weekend in Review

So what did you do this weekend?  I painted a little shelf thingy for my kitchen, bought some great mark-down treasures at Michael's and some cute "fashion glasses" for the grandbabies at the Dollar Store.  I weeded and watered in the yard ~ why is it that no matter how hot it is the weeds still grow?!  Sunday morning I heard an excellent message at church and then headed off with Kevin, Jacqi and Penelope to see Joe, Jo, Elijah AND Caleb! On the way home we stopped at IKEA...always a fun place to visit.  I also took a three hour nap late Sunday afternoon ~ I can't remember the last time I did something like that. I felt a bit off & headachy all weekend. Hopefully my nap "nipped it in the bud"!
On a crafty note ~  Saturday I covered 14 pages of this book with old dictionary pages. It was great fun to spend a little time in my recently cleaned & organized craft room! Now what to fill these pages up with!!?  Any ideas?

I kind of like how sharing some of my weekend activities prompted ideas for some future blog posts for me....stay tuned!
Have a great Monday!!
One more thing ~ can someone tell me what happened to July!!!

What a busy weekend! If someone tells you what happened to July please let me know.
I have an on-going altered book project that i use to make collages for my favorite quotes.

Oh...I don't know...may filled with grandbabies!?!? Have you ever done an art journal? This looks like a nice start.

Congratulations on your new grand baby!! such a blessing he is. I have no idea where July went. It passed in a flash for m too. I just wanted to let you know that I received one of your tags from Karla's Birdsong Swap, I love the textured bird nest with the pearl eggs and the cool "fly" fabric tag. Definitely Looking forward to the next swap.

Hi! love your post!

The book looks great. I was going to suggest some sort of art journal too. You could take one of the words from the page and just do a page about it.

Glad you had fun this weekend (minus the weeding).

You had a busy weekend. I didn't do a whole lot. I did take a nap on Sunday though :) I meant to get out and do some weeding but the ground is so dry and hard as a rock.
I have no idea where July went. Time is flying by way to fast
