The writings on the wall...

This weekend I actually was able to get some crafting done, and that makes me a happy camper! LOL!!!
Since it's back to school time, composition books are everywhere and on sale.  Was able to get a bunch at Wal-Mart for 25 cents a piece, so I could make everyone some password/journal books.  And they are so easy to do.

Here are the ones I did for my nieces, not sure what they will use them for, so I didn't label them.  I'll let them do that.

Then I made one for Steve...he's always fixing things, and I am sure he will use this for his passwords, so that's what I made it for.

The next one I made for hubby...I LOVE the paper I found at Joann's yesterday.  It's called 'It's a Guy Thing' by DCWV.  It's so hard to make things for guys, but this paper really helps.

I also started doing a canvas piece, but am not even close to finishing that.  It's going to be a dedication to none other than ME! LOL!!!  It's going to be tough because it's so hard to describe yourself and not seem like you are being assuming.  But I am asking my family and friends to help me along, so I can't wait to get into it.  Unfortunately, it is already Sunday and I have to get ready for the work week, so my crafting time is over for this weekend.  But I do hope to get back into it next weekend again.

I was also able to finish up my ATC's for my July swap for a group that I belong to...Your Paper Pantry.  I am so happy to be able to get them out this week.  July's theme was Patriotic.  I even made my own red, white and blue embossing powder for them.

I also received my June ATC's which theme was My Style.  So here's mine that I made and the jigsaw puzzle pieces I embossed myself.

Ok, that's my update for this week.  I hope you are all having a great weekend and hope to blog soon!
Take care!!!
