i can't sleep...

So I'll tell you a little bit about my weekend. On Friday, Laura came over so we could work on making cards. On November 10th, there's a craft fair at our church and we're selling some of our creations. Anyways, we need to get a bazillion made for the big event. Laura and I cranked out a bunch and I am pleased with the results. If anyone is interested in the cards, the craft fair or my friend Laura (fellas?), just let me know. :)

Saturday Ben went up to the island to wash windows and make the big bucks! I stuck around and Laura came by to work on cards again...it's so much easier to just leave everything out in the living room and work on creating for a few days in a row. Eventually Ben made it home and we headed to my mom and dad's for a family birthday celebration. I scored some incredible gifts, ate delicious food, and played some stellar games. All-in-all, I felt spoiled!

As for Sunday, we got up and headed out to church. From there, I was fortunate enough to do some shopping (thanks in part to Laura and my parents). Old Navy has some great stuff and it's super cheap too! After the fun, it was time to get serious...I had to finish the homework for my master's class. I can't wait until this thing is over. College was a blast the first time around. However, I don't so much enjoy it the second time through. I've got an entire year left too. Oh well.

I should try to get some sleep...

Before I do, here are a few of the Christmas cards I made. I realize they look very similar, but typically Laura and I never make 2 cards that look anything alike. As a result, it takes forever to make any large number of creations. So, we forced ourselves to make a bunch that looked alike. It saved a ton of time and I'm still excited to see some slight variations. Enjoy! (Oh, and some of the pictures are shiny because of the clear, plastic envelopes that they're in.)

Oh my word! How do you have that kind of patience? It is all I can do to find a card, then think of something to say. You are so creative my friend.

Those cards are so cute!! You should sell them...I know I'd buy them! (Although, I just might try to pass them off as my own creation...except no one would believe me, so... :)
