Happy Saturday!

Ok, so it's technically Sunday morning while I'm writing this by my Saturday hasn't ended yet. What a day!

Bryan made me a new desk and installed in my studio today which was a HUGE improvement. It's long so I have a bit more work space and its super sturdy so I'm very, very happy. It was really cute to see Grady want to jump in and help Bryan while he was installing it with his play safety goggles and Handy Manny tool set. So cute, even that I had to snap some pictures of him "working".

So I spent a good portion of the afternoon rearranging things and getting settled.

But tonight, after I put G to bed, I got cracking on a card which I really like based on a sketch challenge from Card Patterns - #107.

I think it turned out very cute. I really love these papers from Echo Park - so cute and springy. I actually cut the banners out by hand because I AM STILL WAITING for my multipurpose platform to come to me by mail. Can you believe it? Two weeks today and I still don't have it. Sometimes I hate E-bay. The only thing that makes me feel better is that I tried finding it elsewhere (online and in the brick-and-mortars around here) and had a hard time finding one in stock. People all over America must be cuttin' up stuff with their Sizzix! Ha ha.


Hope you had a great weekend. Spend time with your family today if you can. Laughing at Grady today made me remember how he as grown a lot - and a lot in the last 6 months or so.
