i am wide open these days

Take a look at my day planner for this week....



So very exciting, because this never happens... maybe just once per year. I have nothing to do. Nothing. No doctor, no dentist, nothing. I'm going to keep it that way if I can... all the better to get little things done around here that have been hanging over my head, like Christmas ornaments!



I found these little beauties on a sale table for 75 cents after Christmas... they had horrible red glitter on them. That would never do for my wedding theme tree, an ongoing work in progress. I glittered over the red with white, silver and gold glitter. That's better. They look more like our wedding cake now.


About two weeks ago, Loopy and I took a workshop to make acrylic albums. I made mine to send off to our family in Ontario as thanks for having us at the cottage last month... has it been a month already?


I love these little albums, I'm going to make more small theme albums. The workshop was a great way to do it... all of the product was supplied, including embellishments. I added more when we got home, of course.



It was a nice way for Loopy and I to spend an evening together. Her book will be about what she did this summer. It will be jam-packed... mostly with pictures of the Jonas Brothers I suppose. She's working on a whole 8X8 album about her Jonas Brothers weekend in Toronto.









Here's to keeping my week wide open so I can get this shipped off and get a few more projects on the go. Loopy and I are starting on our InspiredFriends goodies too... but I can't show you those, now, can I?

I can't believe there was red glitter on those ornaments. They're looking lovely now. I love making things like your little books, but I only do them if I take a class. There are no classes around her. They look perfect for a thank you gift.

How delightful to have a calendar free of scheduled obligations; I know you'll treasure this time. The books are a wonderful project for you and Loopy. They look fantastic!

I found you via Leica. I am so glad you filled the mini album with pictures, and that you and Loopy had fun at class. They always look wonderful once you put the pictures in.
