My Weekend

In between time spent with my three boys, this is what I was able to do this weekend. How I managed this much, I'm really not sure.

ATC's for a swap I'm in.


Gathering books to repurpose.


Began a new art journal. Hopefully this one will NOT join the all of the other partially completed art journals I have started in the past. But if so, oh well.


Making a birthday present for a friend.


And some very inspiring reading.


Have a beautiful Monday!

Alisa,
My husband just bought me the Sommerset Love and the Journaling magazine the other day (he's SUCH a keeper!) and I have yet had time to sit down and enjoy them. We have a 3 day weekend this weekend and it's also my birthday so guess what I'll be doing?! :D You accomplished alot this past weekend! I actually made some tags and cards for the first time last weekend.....a little timid about putting them on my blog since this was the first time I had attempted it....but I keep on being inspired by people like you! :D Happy Tuesday and stay warm!!

Owww... I´m sóóó jealous on your Somerset editions!!! Too bad we don´t have them here in the Netherlands, these magazins are so beautiful, full of inspiration! Your art journal looks great, hopefully you will finish it!

Charlene said...

I wish I could sit & read your new magazines with you & chat over a cup of tea! I had never seen the Art Journal Magazine. Where did you find it? And for unfinished journals... Unfinished is my middle name. Have a great rest of the week.

Sometimes trying to start a project when the time isn't really right is when your brain has the best idea!
