I had big plans for the weekend until. . . Irene changed said plans. I was going to Asbury Park, NJ to visit my friend Rhonda and her family. Well that got pushed back to Labor Day weekend (which is good since they ended up having to evacuate to a hotel)! Then I had planned to go to the Cape to hang w/ my parents and my nieces who were having a "vacation" at Grammy and Grampy's. Well thanks to Irene that didn't happen either. So I found myself with an entire weekend w/ no plans. Quite unusual for me. I am always over planning my weekends and usually am exhausted for doing so. This weekend was different. It was filled with staying home, relaxing, watching tv, scrapbooking, getting crafty and taking a lot of naps!!!! It really is amazing to me just how much sleep my body needs especially when my MS is "acting up."
So my first project of the weekend was this:
And of course I would never made something for Peyton w/o making something for Ella so this is what I did for her:
I also did some "scrapbooking" this weekend. It isn't the traditional type of scrapbooking that I usually do but I did a couple of fun projects and I'm happy since I haven't done any in SO long! I made an album of my English Vacation from May. I am really happy w/ how it came out. I still need to do some journaling and finishing touches but it looks great. Here are some pages (don't mind the glare these were taken w/ my iPhone and there is a clear protective sheet over each pic):
Then tonight I did another smaller project. My nieces had professional photos taken in July and I order some so I wanted to put them in a mini scrapbook. I just used what I had so some of the colors are "creative" but I think it came out nice.
So that was my crafty weekend! Now I have a huge mess of paper scraps to clean up off my bed!!!
