Busy Weekend...and Other Fun Things

I love when I have a really busy, productive weekend. When I get to do what needs to be done, as well as what I want to get done. And this past weekend was just that kind of weekend...and plus the rain (I love the rain) was just perfect!

I got some scrapbooking time in, had dinner with my friends, watched some good movies on TV, finished (and started) some knitting projects...and got the dishes done, the bathrooms cleaned and the laundry washed and folded (although putting it away will actually take place tonight...).

I finished two small, one-page layouts...both for online contests...and I'm pretty happy with both.

The first one is for the Jan "new" ary challenge at Scrapbook Express based on a Becky Fleck Page Map:

The second layout is for the January Goal contest at Magistical Memories...

I also submitted a page, I finished a couple of weeks ago, to the January Challenge at The Everyday Scrapper.

Whew..a lot of submissions! Plus (and this is a biggie) I sent in a submission, via email, for the Nikki Sivils Design Team...that one's a long-shot, but I gotta try, right?!?!

And I finally finished a scarf I had been working on for several months (sorry, no picture)...started and finished a scarf based on Niki Epstein's Tree of Life afghan (again, no picture...although I am wearing it right now, and it is quite toasty and warm)...started and finished a "mini traveling scarf" for a mini-album my friend is working on...I couldn't resist taking a picture of Bonnie wearing the mini-scarf...

Ain't she cute? I said, very 'busy-bee' weekend...hopefully I can keep up the pace, 'cause the juices are flowing!

If all goes according to plan, tonight I will get another hour or two in the studio to work on a couple more layout submissions that are due at the end of this week...wish me luck!
