Fun took over...

Last night I pulled out my "small mountain" of 8 x 8 papers that I bought years ago when I still worked at Jo-Ann Fabrics and then sorted them into color families.
You can see my "helper" in the background.. he sticks pretty close to me when I am working on a project whether at the dining table or in my sewing room - he is always there.
In the early morning hours I started working on my paper bag album. And again... my "helper" was with me... perhaps a bit too helpful in this particular photo but I was sitting in "his" chair.
At 7 AM I ran out of adhesives... all types. So work on this fun project ended until I could get to a store and buy some more adhesives and some glue that will hold metal to paper. I was able to get a bit more done before I had to cook dinner.
This is where I was when I ran out of adhesives.
The dining room looks very much like a hobby store blew up inside it at the moment but thats ok - I'll clean up in the morning before Scott and I leave on our grand adventure... "back roading".

I did take a nap this afternoon as it was so nice today that we turned the heat off and opened up the windows. The house needed an "airing out" anyways with all of us feeling poorly the past week or so. I don't believe we will have to turn the heat on tonight either. I'm thinking we will sleep well with a window open a bit and fresh air coming inside.

Day One of my 3 day weekend over... time for some rest.


  1. It's always nice to have " helpers" close by...enjoy the next 2 days!!!

  2. Your paper gag album seems to be working out good! Hope you are catching up with your rest!

  3. Looks like you had lots of fun! And what a cool helper!

  4. Wow, that looks iteresting. I can't wait to see the finished product. Have fun on your back roading trip. My husband and I enjoy those type of adventures in the summer. Make sure you have plenty of gas. I speak from experience.

  5. Awesome album! I made one of them a few years back and gave it as a gift. So fun!
