Monday is close to over.
I'm not sure how the weekend flew by so quickly, but it certainly did.
I didn't get a lot of cleaning or laundry done; I did fun stuff instead.
I got this wild idea last week to make our office downstairs into a craft room for me.
We very rarely use the office and I had craft supplies strewn about the house. Matt was getting a bit annoyed.
So Saturday when I woke up and remembered that I had this brilliant idea, I got REALLY excited and headed straight to Walmart to get some things to start.
I don't have a before picture. Totally dropped the ball there. But basically the office was empty save for a computer that never got used and a filing cabinet that is not in any way filed.
Okay, now onto mah crafts. First up:
Line up your crayons in Roy G Biv order. [Actually I started with Pink, so I guess it'd be Proy G Biv]
Locate a blow dryer.
here. You can also use a candle. Probably safer.
Then when I was finished with that, I wrote some verbs around the edging. I think that added to it
For a few months now I've mulled over doing a Menu to hang in the kitchen. It just so happens that I go to the store with a plan for the week's meals and then life happens and turns everything upside down and I waste a ton of food. Less than ideal and not great on the budget.
Originally I wanted to do one with chalk, but when I saw the Dry-erase stickables at WW, I thought that sounded a lot easier.
I used my scrap-booking scissors to add some pizzaz to the edges. I used different colored sharpies for the days of the week.
Nick, Matt, Michelle & I went bowling yesterday and played 3 games. Not only did I gutter it only a handful of times, but I more than tripled my score from the first time I played. My top score reached 104! So I don't totally suck. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
I'm not going to discuss Saturday's showing in Columbia because the wound is still healing. We have another challenging game coming up on Wednesday against Baylor [at their house] and here's to hoping we can pull our stuff together.
I finished the Nicholas Sparks book and let me just say that the ending was definitely not what I was expecting. I'll leave it at that.
So, that's all I have to report.
Longer letter later.
And ROCK CHALK!
