T.G.I.F.

I'm super thrilled that it is Friday....It's been a busy week at work and I'm looking forward to the weekend!

I'm like any other crafter...there are a couple manufacturers that I adore...

Crate Paper

is definitely one of them.

So a couple weeks ago I spent the day with some friends/former co-workers.  We met up at the Ben Franklin Craft Store...walked over to the Saturday Farmers Market and then had lunch together...pretty perfect day {and the weather cooperated!}.

Ben Franklin is chock full of everything but I gotta say that everything is jacked up in price...but they had marked down the Crate Paper Neighborhood Collection:

I couldn't resist...I got a bunch of everything:)

Do you see the cabochons?  They are Donna Downey for Prima...she had a massive sale on them a while ago and I'm finally using them!




So any fun plans for the weekend?  We're going to the pumpkin patch...hoping they have big white pumpkins for me and if not, I'll make a trip to the Trader Joe's Pumpkin Patch:)

Had alot of comments on my early birdness...There are some nights that I struggle to stay up until 7:30...so I'm thankful for my crockpot and rice cooker to have dinner done by the time I get home from work.

I wish that I could sleep in but that would be 5 am, if I'm lucky.  I'm a big fan of naps on the weekends....

The very fabbie Linda B at Hands to Work...Heart to Love passed 
along the Butterfly Award to me.   Thanks soooo much for thinking of me!

I'm suppose to pass this along to 10 people...wow 10!

  8. absolutely love your card and the crate paper goodness. The stores here don't tend to carry that line and if they do they don't carry much of it.
    Now I know why we get along I love green and Adele too. Chocolate not so much.

  16. Look at this fun festive card... sounds like a perfect day too-- the trick to BF is to get their 20% gift card and then every day things are on sale... our shop has 20% off the last Wednesday of the month and specials often... (which is bad since it's so close).
