This weekend ending up being a pretty good one. Usually the weekend goes by fast
and I don’t get anything done. I’ve cleaned out my craft room and made the extra stuff disappear. THEN on Sunday, I found a great deal on a solid wood standing table off of Craiglist. I’ve been looking on CL for-ev-ah!! So I had to switch my organized room around to accommodate for it.
I have a little more organizing and cleaning to do but I am SO HAPPY! I got a standing workstation. So awesome.
I’ve also signed up for “A Prompt A Day” by Kelly Kilmer. It’s a month of getting techniques and prompts from a person who does fantastic art journalling and collage. I already done the first day’s work.
The background was interesting to make. Adding a little paint when applying and adding layers of paint as you go. This prompt was “Things that make me Happy” With such a great day today, it was easy to make a list. Jeff is at the top of course and today is our 5th anniversary! Woo hoo! Even though we got married on a leap year day, we chose today to be the one to celebrate.
On Friday, i surprised Jeff with a cake. On our wedding day, we bought got one bite of the wedding cake we got from Hoffman’s Bakery in Kirkland. So I ordered one with what I could remember what we ordered for our wedding day. Well, it turned out a bit different and freakishly heavy buttercream frosting. When we got there, I realized I needed to ask for a princess torte. The inners of the cake was good, but the thick buttercream on the outside was nothing special. Totally could do without it.
So all is good. Jeff and I went to Tully’s after picking up the table and the total came to $7.77. Then later on we went to Relax the Back for a new tempurpedic pillow for me but came out with buying a tempurpedic mattress. They cost a pretty penny but we got a floor model that hasn’t hit the floor. So it’s new and we get 25% off. Such a bargain that we went with it as we have been thinking about it for some time.
I swear we need to buy a lottery ticket with this such luck.
