Monday Review: Reset Button

Bloggers get a few reset buttons a year, right? Well, I'm using mine. This week is a new week, and last week was scrapped. Never happened. (:

If you read my last post, you'll remember we went to southern California last weekend to attend my grandfather's memorial service. And as I'm sure you know, it's HARD to loose a weekend. I mean, we gained the experience of bidding a fond farewell to Chuck. And we basically had a family reunion (which is worth a year of lost weekends to me). But the loss of productivity at the house was quite difficult, for the blog, and as a housewife/mom.

I didn't truly feel the loss of the weekend until around Thursday when I just kind of threw in the towel, and realized I wouldn't get anything done for the blog that week. Boo.

My big (creative) project for the week was making paper chains for my best friend's baby shower. They were quite cool. Construction paper and scrapbooking paper, much of it doubled up for thinkness or to have color/pattern on both sides.

It took me much longer than I expected, but they turned out really cool. I made probably 120 feet of chain. They went along all the windows in the room, the 50 foot beam down the center, and in front of a few tables. I hope some other people got good pictures.

I'm happy that there seems to be plans to use them as decorations in my friend's kids' bedroom or to used them for kids birthdays or showers in the future. I'm not the only one emotionally attached now.

I also made a couple diaper cakes. Yummm . . . {:

Ok. Let's pick this blogging thing back up this week!

I already started my drawing for the Saturday Sketch, and I'm very excited to show you.

I'll also have more news about the studio!
