A little bit of fun

I"m back! After a crazy week getting ready to leave and an equally crazy week at a conference in Phoenix (Scottsdale) Arizona, I'm so happy to be home. I've had three whole days to get settled back in and I loved every one of them. Friday was my day to myself to get my house clean, take care of some errands and get things back in order. I didn't get any crafting done that day, but I did get a lot of baking done with a couple loaves of banana bread (thankfully hubby didn't toss the bananas while I was gone), homemade granola and some meatloaf and a whole week of meals planned in advance (love that!). Then Saturday, hubby and I spent a great day with my parents. Mom and I checked out the warehouse sale by Boxer and I spent a lot (!) of money on some great scrapbooking supplies. Then we had a great lunch and it was off to IKEA. I haven't been to the one they built near us and it was huge! Amazingly I restrained myself from buying all new furniture for my craft room, but I'm plotting (ha ha). Then today, I finally had some time to simply play in my room. I finished sewing on the buttons on a baby sweater I made a while back for a co-worker's new baby. Now that he's back from family leave, I can give it to him, but I needed a card. I found a super cute one for the Cameo.

I used all my scraps again and ran the white background through the Sizzix Big Kick with an embossing folder for a little more texture. Quick, easy and perfect to go with the little sweater.

Oh, and I just have to share this adorable shot of Smoke and Chewie that I snapped today. It's rare that they are so close on the same post. Well, I'm off to bed since it's back to the office tomorrow for another crazy, busy week. Hopefully it will also be very productive!
