Life is what you make it

What a productive weekend

For me anyway. My husband is sick and has held down the couch most of the weekend.

Saturday morning I woke up and headed to Stampfest.  I had a good quick time.  I had to leave at noon to get back home so I could prepare Valentine's Dinner for my sons and their friends and girlfriend. Usually my hubby and I do it together.  With him not feeling well I did most of it.  This year was a 20 year tradition of dining on fine china, the silver and crystal glasses. The China is almost if not over 100 yrs old.  A picture of the  dessert is on my Facebook page.

This week I have been busy in my art room preparing for future classes.  I also had a stamp club meeting and made 15 ATCs for trading.

I completed 3 of my challenges for Acharmingplace.  The frame is covered in  papers and inked.
This is my husband's Valentine's card that will become a framed print to put in his office.

I think this Challenge was my favorite and I am turning it into a class.  The challenge was to take something and make it something it isn't/ or isn't intended for. I used 2 over head projectors transparencies and turned them into this transparent card.
Tomorrow is the beginning of another week and I plan on being in my art room as much as possible.  Now if that house cleaning fairy would only show up! ;)
