monday, monday, monday...

monday mornings and afternoons are like my friday nights. except without the darkness. i have off work mondays, tuesdays, and don't go back until wednesday evening so you get where i'm coming from. nice.

i did some laundry today. tidied up my kitchen at bit--i had it sparkly clean when i left for work sunday and since the boys spent most of the day messing up grandma's house, i didn't have too much to do. i do, however, need to mop the floor. i've been keeping my head up high so that i don't notice it too much. owen and i just finished lunch and now he is napping.

i took this pic on friday. it is one of about 12. this is the best one i could get. michael was upset about something, as usual. but he looks cuter than owen and i. he is sort of smiling.

and then i did this layout friday afternoon-ish. it's using the new exclusive line of papers from SC. and they are awesome. i ordered extra and have been trying to use them sparingly as i'm not sure that i'll be able to get any more! i actually used eyelets on it; they were begging me to use them. and i had always wanted to finish the idea of threading the string through them, but was too dumb to think to use a needle (and it never worked out). oh well.

be sure to check out BASB. my girl Aimee re-vamped a trash can and it is wonderful! i love it! so we have 4 really awesome projects up there for you to get inspiration from and i hope that you'll play along! i'll be announcing a winner on thursday and you could get all this...just for playing! it is a Valentine/girlie theme with some thickers, ribbon, buttons, felt flower i cut out, tags i printed, maya road clear and chipboard accents, MM tiny alphas, 6x6 pad of Basic Grey Sultry, Kaiser Craft pearls and wooden hearts, Prima flowers, and a board book for you to decorate!
