Crafty Tuesday (Weekend!)

Thanks to our Crafty Weekend, I finally have stuff to show you today!

So, I met up with Kim and a friend in Chicago and we loaded up headed for Lake Geneva. Here’s a peek at our supplies for the weekend…


Yep. Filled up the entire cargo section of the van.

And this was the scene for most of the weekend…


Hard at work.

The bulk of my work was finishing a Christmas present, a scrapbook for somebody. And I know she reads this, so I don’t want to show the actual project. But here is a peek – proof if you will – that I did 20+ layouts and just about finished the book up on Saturday…


And I also scrapped my favorite recent photos of the girls so that I could fill these shadowboxes for their rooms. (That I have had for many of months.)

This one is Gracie’s…

And it now lives on top of her bookshelf…

And the layout for Addikins….

Which now lives above her little reading chair in her room…

So I felt it was a very successful weekend. Plus, on the plane ride I was able to get two books read, my calendars started, and a little bit of work done. Nice big chunks of time to focus up. It was really nice.

And J. did marvelously as a single Daddy. I got a call on the way to the airport on Thursday from the sitter that Emma had contracted the stomach flu courtesy of Addie, no doubt. And Addie still wasn’t feeling quite herself, so J. had two sick little girlies to contend with for part of the weekend. But they also managed to fit in a movie, bagel Saturday, Em’s last soccer game, a couple of trips to the toy store to make Christmas lists, and plenty ‘o spoiling. Yeah, I think they all had a good time.

How about you? Did you get some time this past week to indulge in a little bit of craftiness? Do share.

    I am utterly jealous and extremely impressed! You got a lot of stuff done in a short time. I love the shot of everyone working. The shadow boxes are fabulous, so crafty.

    you hauled all of that on a plane! Holy cow.

    I’m glad you had a nice weekend, it was well deserved!

    I am so jealous of your craft time! Definitely no craftiness from this neck of the woods today. But someday….someday…

    Wow, great job! You sure did get a lot done. I can’t wait to see the finished project. I’m sure that whomever is destined to receive the gift will be overjoyed with it. 🙂

    What a great way to get things done, too! A whole weekend with the girlfriends is a good way to be productive.

    Today I’m sharing some stuff I made for Kailan. No girl stuff this week!

    I’m getting there, but I need a friend like you to hand out with and get me going! We made I-Spy bottles this weekend…

    Fun- I love time away to get crafty things done. In October a girlfriend and I set up shop in the my dinning room for a weekend. It was so fun.

    What a fun, productive, and yet relaxing weekend!

    Wow, you were VERY productive! I’d probably have been too busy hanging out to actually do anything. LOL. Looks like a really great time. LOVE the shadow boxes! I might have to do something like that in N’s room.

    Did I mention how jealous I am?? Just checking.

  11. 11 Kate W. November 26, 2008 at 7:02 am

    The only reason I am trying to not be jealous is that my scrap booking weekend is planned for Feb. You accomplished so much! I adore the pages for the girls and can’t wait to see your finished book!

  12. 12 Kim December 1, 2008 at 12:52 pm

    Did I tell you that I am so impressed with you for getting those pages put up so quickly? You go, girl!
    I filled Chris’ book over the weekend and realized it’s out of pages. Have you gotten your more pages for your book yet?
