I voted other: I have wedding programs to make and some paper projects to complete for my classroom. It doesn't look like I have anything too fun planned. Maybe next weekend!

I'm hosting my anual fall workshop and I can hardly wait! I love my 'parties'. Nine of us tomorrow, 3 cards, lots of laughs, ton of fun, and pumpkin cheesecake to boot!

I voted "other" I will be taking a copic class tomorrow morning. I have resisted for so long but finally had to try it. I'm sure it will be great fun. After that I will try to get a few Christmas cards made using my new copic markers.

Better get busy!
WOW! Just have a plate full for a weekend. I hope you have something simple to make! I must not very ambitous, I feel great if I can get 4 or 5 cards made in a weekend. I do pretty well if I already have the layout and colors picked out. Happy stamping to you!!!

I checked "other" because I'm teaching a class Saturday afternoon (altered picture frame with Grungepaper flowers). And I have a list of other things to make: store samples for my October coloring class (Prismacolor pencils); a birthday card for a friend; a Bo-Bunny chipboard album that spells Family.

And I need to do laundry, shave my legs, and paint my toenails.

I also voted for "other" because I'm getting ready for a three day, two night scrapbook retreat/crop next weekend. I've got to get my supplies together and decide what pictures I'll be scrapping. I'm also going to make some cards and card set while I'm there since I'll be selling them at a boutique the end of October. I'm trying to be as organized as I can so I won't be moving the whole studio to the hotel.

I had to vote for the 'no crafting' for me. Today is my birthday but DH got called in to work...only one of their clients has 24-7 tech support, and of course this is the day they need it. Instead I get to be a Mommy...which really isn't all that bad now, is it?

I voted for cleaning the room. I got an old library card catalog this week with 60 drawers to put in my craft room. Now I have to reorganize (yet again). Can't decide if the embellishments should go by type or color. I'd hate to not like what I do and have to do it over... again.

I finished my first clipboard yesterday, and am working on my 2nd. It's all painted and ready to go. Also making a 3rd.

I need to clean my desk before I can work on swaps. But I am at work now so I am doing work stuff, actually I am taking a lunch break.

I do not know about everyone else, but once I start on a project, I do not clean as I go so my work space gets smaller and smaller-until I have no space left!

I'm just playing with various techniques - no card in mind. I finally finished my Autum cards and I only have 1 BD to finish for the month so I have time to just fool around with stuff. So far, I've just made messes and nothing has been that creative. I think I need some chocolate for inspiration....

Well, since the weekend is almost over I can tell you what I did - made a card for a special occasion. Now I need to clean the stamping room.

I managed both mine - 4 3/4 cards yesterday with the last one finished off this morning, and a whole bag of stuff posted up on FreeCycle after tidying this afternoon.

Default busy weekends

I'm trying to squeeze in crafting - but as soon as I started teaching classes again...I've been donating much of my creative time to lesson plans. This is motivating me just admitting my lack of time. I'm also going to the library today to work on my master's thesis.

I had to vote "other". The only crafting I have for the weekend has been some embroidery. I want to get my Christmas cards started but just have not been inspired to stamp lately...

I'm making a card for my niece who will be 11 in October. I am sure she will love the Sugar Nellie Gorjuss girls, I sure do

I made a birthday card for my DD who is away at college. I also made a cupcake gift card holder and put a gift card for Zune music in it. The card and the gift card holder match. This is the first time I will ever be able to surprise her with a gift, she has always managed to find out in advance.

Does opening a *small* box of Stampin Up! stuff and putting it away, count for crafting?

It counts in my book. Espcially if you're salivating. . . .

Well, the weekend is over and since nothing I was making was any good so I went the gourd festival. Nice afternoon and when I came back I was able to finally make a cute card. I think the gourd festival artisans gave me some much needed inspiration.
