A productive two days...

Have you ever had a productive weekend and got a ton of projects completed?  Well this weekend I did  just that.  I signed up to do a Calendar Swap over at Life on the {Scrap}Beach.  I had a great time designing it and I had my whole production system going.  But I ran out of red ribbon, I was scared that I didn't have enough paper, I goofed up the sewing on some of the list of mishaps kept going and going. But I was still happy with the outcome of the layout.

I used Making Memories Love Struck line for my layout. Thank goodness I had enough paper to make all 12 layouts. Phew!
Close up of my project

completed project...all 12 layouts ready to ship.

My next project was a mini album trade again with Life on a {Scrap}Beach with Bev.  I completed the album and forgot to take pictures because I was so excited to send it out to Bev.  Oh well. I have to remember to take pictures. (kinda funny that a scrapbooker forgets to take pictures.) 

Now I get to play with Teresa Collins Noel Paper collection.  So excited to get the Christmas spirit going.

If you were wondering...No I did not do the Black Friday shopping thing.  I am way to chicken to fight the crowds.  I have been online shopping before I think it was cool.  I knew exactly what I needed order it and it already comes wrapped and everything. So much better for me. No crowds or anything. Another reason I never shopped on Black Friday is because I was always working at my local scrapbook store Windy City Scrapbooking on Black Friday.  It was always fun and exciting how busy we were on Black Friday.  I miss you girls! This was my first Black Friday that I was not at WCS, well I guess I have a good excuse this year...I am just a little too far to make it in to work.  Honestly...I didn't know what to do with myself today.  So I just played in my studio.

I was also blessed on Thanksgiving because Robert was cooking the entire dinner for us.  I was treated to playing in my studio all day.  So in two days I finished the 12 layouts and a mini album!  Yea me! Now that is what I am talking about being truly blessed. And my Chicago friends know what an accomplishment is for me to complete so much in two days.  Don't ask..They keep telling me that they think I forgot how to scrapbook.  But I haven't!  SEE! Miss yall.  Okay...thanks for stopping by to see what I will do next. Have a great weekend!
