Weekends should be 3 days long...

March 9, 2008

Here it is Sunday night...and I am wishing I had just one more day of the weekend! But, tomorrow it is back to the daily grind of work for 5 more days until the next weekend. Sigh- being a working woman can be tough! Tee hee!

I had a fun weekend, but I will get to that in a minute. First, I wanted to mention that their is a new sketch up at the CPS Card Blog, and we have a sponsor this week!! The Embellishment Studio sent us their March basic kit of ribbon and lace....SO pretty. I am friends with some of the ladies that do The Embellishment Studio...and often these ribbons and lace are vintage...and you can actually tell! So pretty and intricate!

Here is a sneak peek of my card...it will be up on the blog later this week!

And now....my Saturday was a lot of fun. My cousin and her family came to Missoula for her daughter's 5th birthday. The kids played at Dragons Hallow, rode the Carousel for Missoula, and then we went to the Children's Museum.

I made these cupcakes for our after lunch celebration. This time around I made rainbow sprinkle cake, and topped them with cherry frosting. I made the little cupcake decorations with my Cricut Expression, and the Celebrations cartridge. I wanted to make them extra special for Kyla's birthday weekend!
I haven't had a chance to go through and edit all the photos from the weekend yet, but this one stuck out when I scrolled through all of them. She is such a little cutie!!

When I got back home, Josh sat through this movie with me:

He was a trooper! So not a Josh movie, but he took it like a man. I though it was cute. Different than I expected, but really cute. I have loved Keri Russell since her Felicity days...so of course I wanted to see it. Her other latest movie "August Rush" comes out on Tuesday, so I need to get it added to my Netflix queue. I think I will do that here in a minute!

Today I did a whole lot of cleaning! Like, the cleaning where you take an hour long shower afterwards because you feel so gross! But, my house is gleaming (except for our room...I so need to get that done this week) and ready for a week of pretty much just me, the pups, and some scrappy time. Josh heads to Minneapolis early Tuesday morning for a work related thing, so it is just going to be me.

Hanging on to my last few moments of weekend time,


  1. not only are you the Diva of Bling, you must be the Princess of Cupcakes - those are soooo cute!!

  2. Your cards are so beautiful!!! Love the photo where the background is blurred, how did you get her to be so in focus? Very cool! I don't know how working women do it all, and have time for crafting..I stay at home and still don't feel like I have enough time to do what I want to do! LOL
