This weekend....

*I took Holly to Benihana for her birthday.*Purchase new 2008 desk calendar and wrote in birthdays. Also dug out some felt hearts I started last Valentines day and never finished.
*Still trying to polish my sewing skills with these some what beginner pincushions. It's the blind stitching at the end that I screw up. One ended up being the shape of a football.
*Deciding on paint color for the craft room. Think I'm leaning towards a blue...thinking vintage map ala Martha Stewart, robin's egg blue, Tiffany's blue...something blue.
*Ate half a chunk of brie with crackers for dinner tonight.
*Finishing up the last few pages of my Christmas scrapbook/journal.
*Purchased 2 more vintage relish trays to hold my ever-growing stash of old buttons and ribbons.
*Drank 3 cups of coffee this morning.
*Dinner with Jeff's parents at Club Paris on Friday. It's a popular, spendy restaurant here in Anchorage that everyone raves about. I was surprised to see how huge my cut of prime rib was. It didn't even look like I put a dent in it by the end of our meal.
*Watched Superbad 3 times in the past week. I love the very beginning when they're dancing. I want that as a screen saver.

Overall a good weekend. Glad it wasn't one of those rush around town, spending money of gifts kind of weekend. The Christmas decor is slowly coming down although I'm thinking of a way of shrink wrapping my tree so that next year, I can just unwrap it and it's all decorated and ready to go. :) :) ;)

Happy New Year friends.
Take care,

I love the blue color too. It's gonna look so pretty, very MS :)

I saw Superbad yesterday and I LOVED it, my fave part is also the dancing during the opening credits. Too funny:P

Have a wonderful new year!!!

The pin cushions are cute. I've been sewing for years and never made pin cushions. Cute idea. Also, love the fabric. Where did you get it? I'm thinking about buying fabric online for a wardrobe project that I'm doing this month for a 2yr old niece.

Funny thing, I just told my MIL that I thought about painting my living room a light blue color. Great minds think alike :) Have fun with that!

Happy 2008!

(My craft room is blue. I highly recommend it!)

Holly said...

Gack! I hate that picture! But, thanks again for a wonderful evening. :0) I had a great time! Sadly, it's 10 pm, and I'm already in bed. Typical NYE for me. LOL! Hope you had a great night, and best wishes for 2008!

when you figure out that tree shrink wrap let me know.
love the pin cushions and valentines heart. try ironing the seam open before stuffing and closing. it should make the shape come out round.
still need to watch that movie, but sadly it's not at the top of my to-do list right now.
happy new year!!
