Whirlwind Weekend

It's hard to believe the weekend is just about over, but I sure took advantage of it.  Jenaye and Justin came home from Tucson, so we were able to spend some time with them.  The visit wouldn't have been complete without a trip to Pete's Fish & Chips and ETC.  

I also made the last projects for my upcoming DO ME A FAVOR workshop, which is a week from Tuesday.   Here's a peek at two of the four projects we will be creating.

 This little treat container is made from Bazzill cardstock and printed paper from Reminisce.  A sweet ribbon pennant is placed under a customized tag before being adhered to the front of the treat holder.  The recipient is sure to smile when they find the inside filled with Rolos.

This petite Easter basket is made from part of an empty toilet paper roll.  The sweet printed paper is from We R which coordinates so well with Bazzill cardstock.  A few punches, a Tim Holtz die {Easter Bunny}, a pom pom tail, ribbon, and a sweet little customized pennant glued to a paper straw help make this favor a perfect little treat for that "somebunny" in your life.  It also would make a cute place setting for your Easter dinner. 

We have had a house guest for the last couple of weeks...her name is Diamond.  She is pretty much convinced us she is a human and now lives here.  She is right at home and is usually on one of our laps, or at the front screen door enjoying the weather.  Here's a cute little pic I took of her this weekend.  Cute, huh?

Monday, Monday!

While the house isn't much cleaner...I did manage to sweep the floor, change the sheets, clean the kitchen, dust the family room and clean off the dining room and kitchen table, it doesn't sound impressive for being off from work for 4 days, does it?  Then again, you didn't see the tables {giggle!}.

Being a new grandma, had to make the grandkids a valentine treat.

Mailed them out last Monday and Zona got hers in time, but poor Jackson's didn't arrive until Saturday.  :/

Made some little treats for the peeps at work.

Super simple.  I cut and scored Bazzill cardstock to tuck a little snack sized bag of M&M's into and created some cute little tags to secure with baker's twine.  Super simple, super fast.  :)

I put away all my Valentine decorations and put out my Spring stuff.

This little "table runner" was a scarf from H&M {thanks Naye!}.  It's perfect!

I love when things intended for one purpose can be used for another.

Did some shopping this weekend...

And used some of it to create this...

I already have the perfect spot for it in my house.

Off to do a load of laundry {work clothes} to get me through the week!
