a relaxing weekend... FINALLY.

i finally had a relaxing weekend last week.

it's been ages since i have had some time to myself, and really, i was still busy, but i had a lot of time to create (and i did... 19 cards on saturday/ sunday!) on saturday i took my '08 Toyota Matrix to get it's 30,000 mile service early in the morning, and was up to start some cards. i finished these "autumn" cards (i'll probably save them for something later) as well as some other really cute cards (you'll see them later).

after i got my car back in the afternoon, i wandered to a few scrapbook/ stamping stores that are in my area but that i'd never been to... i only "needed" adhesive and "wanted" a 1 1/4" circle punch, but i ended up getting some more things (quite a bit more) that you'll probably see featured here later.

anyway, after the shopping i went to watch my brother Joey participate in AWANA Olympics... he was in the 3 legged race (didn't win), a beanbag relay, and the tug-o-war (HE WON!) that was fun :)

the nice thing about saturday was that we were supposed to play a polo game (i coach hs girls water polo) but it got cancelled because of the # of girls out for illness/ previous comittments. that meant i had the evening to myself! my parents were gone, and my brother went to spend the night with friends, so i stayed up crafting until about 12:30. then i made the mistake of "laying down" for a little bit and next thing i know, it's 2:30, and i've dozed off for 2 hours. i am SO looking forward to having more time like that to create... it's so refreshing for me.

right now i'm just trying to survive teaching the week before spring break. i'm telling you, there is NOTHING as bad as jr. highers the week before break. i must have talked to 10 kids about behavior, called 6 parents, and sent 4 kids to in-school-suspension, all on monday. we just all need a break. well, all i can say is *phew* and "it's TUESDAY!"

hope your spring break plans go well, and that you have a chance to relax and enjoy your family and friends.

Yeah, the owl stamp is SO cute! I. must. borrow. :) Wow, 19 cards?!? I'm starting to get the stamping itch again- it's been almost two weeks! Hopefully I'll be able to post something soon.
