September was a heck of a month, every weekend booked, back to babysitting full time....so crafting and housework fell behind.
Actually October weekends are looking just about the same, but I had this morning off.
So what do I spend the first 2 hours doing? Cat litter, bathrooms, strip bed, kitchen (cleaning countertops, scrubbing sinks)(good thing about this is you have to put things away as you go...amazing how much stuff gets piled on the kitchen counters), 2 loads laundry...and I wonder, how do the working moms do this? How did I do this when I was a working mom? I did not touch the dusting and floors and quite honestly, I AM DONE...so time to go in my craft room for a bit.
So before I post anything Oct purchase related..here are some Sept...
Stamps from the Facebook Swap and Sell group. I've had the Harriet Hippo in my Etsy cart for a while, so was ecstatic to see these.

Dgd spent the night Friday and we did spend most of Saturday making cards....She completed 3 cards, birthday for her little sister, her little brother and a thinking of you card for her great grandmother. Her cards are funny...the 2nd pic shows the inside...Happy Birthday, I love you even though you kick me... ha!!!
I concentrated on finishing all the card projects from about 2 years of make and takes from the Expo's Crop...is it called a make and take crop? You know the one done Thurs night???
Anyways, this is the basket I had been keeping them in...
Then worked on finishing a card I have had sitting around for a while now...I started this base...think I had a stamped image, but pulled it off for another project at one point
this year's Christmas...not real happy, tried the distress ink background...I just don't 'have' it yet.
So by the end of the day, this is what my basket looked like...an assortment of finished cards...
So, did have a productive card making weekend. Someday soon will scrapbook again! ha!
