Crafty Tuesday

No, I didn’t forget, exactly…and it IS still Tuesday, it just really feels like Monday to me.

I had asked J. last week if he got MLK day off and he said, “Pshaw…no!” But then later he called me and said, “Hey, guess what? We do get Monday off!”

And since he is going to be a bit busy and traveling the next two weeks (that little thing called the SuperBowl, you know…) we decided to do a little impromptu mini-vacation. We took the girls down to Disneyland for the weekend and stayed overnight at a hotel with an indoor pool, which is almost as exciting to the girls as Disney…almost! We had a great time, and I’ll put up some photos and stories later. (Thanks for all of your help, Uncle Jeff!!)

And yesterday we just had a lovely day at home. It was what weekends are supposed to be like, I think. Relaxing and fun and just a little bit productive.

So…that is why I woke up feeling like it was Monday. And why I did not even think of Crafty Tuesday until a few moments ago.

But both girls are at school, and President Obama was just inaugurated, so I think it is indeed Tuesday.

I unfortunately only have two measly cards to show today. I have a stack of fun stuff to use and I’m feeling very creative – so I expect that I’ll get some stuff done while J. is away this upcoming few weeks.

These are the cards I made for my parents last week for their birthdays.

Birthday cards

Again with those tri-fold, cross cut envelopes. I do like doing those. And I included my two favorite quotes:

God could not be everywhere, so he created Mothers. ~Jewish proverb

Any man can be a father, it takes someone special to be a Dad. ~Anonymous

So happy TUESDAY to all of you! Do you have anything good to show?

    “President Obama.” That has such a fantastic ring to it! I think I’ll say it again… “President Obama.”

    Oh, and the cards are beautiful!

    You need to stop apologizing for your “two measly cards” – because that’s more than I’ve done in a long time!

    I’m glad you guys had such a great little getaway!

    Love the quotes and the colors you used. I for some reason really like brown and blue together.
