Good morning! I realized after I blogged on Saturday, that I completely forgot to include the reason I put that whole story up here in the first place! I wanted to share with you a goal. However, a little back story, first.
Lately, I have realized that I don't have anything to work for in my life. Yes, I have a job where I make chocolate, and it is great, but it isn't life changing. I don't have any kids (just fur-babies), so I don't have that to worry about yet. I just do the same thing day in and day out, and it seems like nothing was changing. I realized I needed something to work towards. I gave it a great deal of thought, and decided to set some goals.
My first goal: get on a scrapbook and/or stamp company design team! I think that would be awesome! I've only ever done a little DT work when I was at Magic Scraps. It was fun, but it was also a chore. (I hope that my DT goal won't turn into a chore.) I hope it might open doors to all kinds of things I never thought possible! Now, I just have to see who is calling for DT members, and to step up my scrapping/stamping game!!! (Umm. . .does anyone know a great site for DT calls??)
Moving on. My weekend. Friday, hubby and I had some friends over for dinner and a swim! Fun stuff! Saturday, hubby worked, and I got to play! I made a card for a baby shower (that we were supposed to go to Saturday night, but decided not to!) Simple and fun:
(Supplies: Stamp-Technique Tuesday; cardstock and patterned paper- Paper Studio; trim and glitter glue from Hobby Lobby)
Next, I worked on my layout for the Studio Calico Blog's weekly challenge. This is the opening page for my Wedding Reception album!
(Supplies: cardstock and patterned paper- Paper Studio; letters- my designs; rub-ons: Making Memories; flowers- Prima and Recollections; jewels-Paper Studio; heart- Studio Calico)
That night, hubby decided to grill a leg of lamb and veggie packets. We were swimming while the meat cooked, but a storm came through and that ended the swimming. However, it was a wonderful time spent. The lamb was delicious! Wow! I'm glad we have some left. . . Can you say GYROs??
Sunday, we went to church in the morning. Hubby had to meet someone for a little work-related estimate, so while he was gone, I vacuumed the pool. Man, it was HOT! Gotta Love Texas! Once hubby got back, we debated about our dinner plans. We eventually decided on. . . .
wait for it. . . . .
Bacon-wrapped Hot Dogs, Macaroni-and-Cheese, and grilled corn! Horrible for it, but MAN. WAS. IT. GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!
