you're a good egg...


happy saturday!

I'm thrilled that it is the weekend...lots to do but it's all good.

I've been playing with my October Afternoon Farmhouse Collection:


I simply adore yellow and grey together!

I was inspired by the recent sketch over on the October Afternoon blog:


Seriously though, how can you NOT be inspired by Roree and Amy?

Typing about inspiration....I had the pleasure of meeting up with some real life inspiration:



I really love meeting up with bloggie friends...insta-connection.  These gals are thee best.  I'm pretty sure that Erin brought the sunshine with her...the weather has been strangely nice around here...not complaining:)

What do you have planned for today?

We're going to be doing some yard work...have to get rid of a tree that fell onto my place during the ice storm {luckily there was no damage!}....having some peeps over for dinner...making 2 pans of lasagna...plus I'll be squeezing in crafty time, a nap and a starbucks run:)

    I AM WORKING ON CARDS today!

    For real ;)

    Like I have made 8 all ready...

    Yes ... 8

    And I think I will be making more...

    It's this insane obsession I have ...

    And I partially blame those card makers I follow...

    Really... it is probably their fault...

    Or maybe it's just me...

    Ohhhhh and I am cleaning the bathrooms, living room, kitchen pantry....

    Everyone wants to clean for me :)
