I promised I'd be back in short order with an update on the fun things I had sworn that I would do this weekend. So far, I'm sticking with my promise to myself, and to you!

Friday afternoon was my first score; I found hydrangeas and roses, my favorite combination! So of course, I left with those by the armload. They look beautiful next to this old seashore photo I found while junkin' on Saturday, and some old starfish. Just enough to make me dream of summer....ahhhhhh.

I gave in and got a circle puncher, and boy am I glad I did! I've been punchin' like crazy! Not too sure what I'm doing with these yet, but I see some cards and tags in my future!

I wanted to make a hand-made gift for some friends at work who served on my committee this year. There are 9 of them, so it had to be do-able! I think these notepads turned out well.

I found some gorgeous old wedding certificates this weekend to add to my collection, and a whole book of nearly new old paperdolls. How cute are they? The colors are perfect.

Remember the old vintage book holder I told you I found a few weeks back? I'm still giddy over that one! I set it up in the dining room with an old Nancy Drew book. It makes me smile every time I walk by!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, and taking some time for yourself ~~~

No, I haven't forgotten about you, dear friend! Things have just been very, very busy, and I am too quick to make time for everything but my creative self! A girlfriend and I have been having fun browsing this book. We've given ourselves a homework assignment to complete by Monday. (Gulp!) I am determined to get some crafting/junkin' in this weekend - -for sure. School is out soon, and then...look out!
