"Miss Elany"

The weekend just flew by too, too fast. I went from moments of crazy crafting, to periods of total slothness (is that even a real word). Typical me though. Crazy busy one minute and couch potato queen the next.

Friday morning I went for a massage. Now, lest you think I am a total diva who constantly pampers herself, please let me tell you that my dear hubby gave me a massage gift card for Christmas that I finally allowed myself to use. Well, after the massage, which was awesome, btw, I came home and did a whole lot of nothing. I was completely useless. Okay, I did manage to make dinner, but that was about it.

Saturday I was feeling a little guilty so I spent a little time cleaning the kitchen and working on these.

You may remember I mentioned that I found a few denim shortalls at the Goodwill bins and I had a plan for them for Farm Chicks. Well, this is what I came up with. I decided to take them to Monticello as Farm Chicks is still a few months away. I figure that if they sell, I can always make more.

Here's the back view. I tried to just keep them simple and patchy looking.

Isabel and I did go to Monticello yesterday and spent a few hours cleaning up and rearranging our booth. It's so much easier when we both go together, but let me tell you, at one point, it looked as if a bomb went off in our booth. We finally got it together and I have to say, that it looks so much better. Much less crowded and easier to see everything. We both agreed that there are still a lot of things in our booth that will most likely end up in a garage sale that we are planning on doing at the end of March. You know, the "why did I ever buy this?" kind of things.

Isabel along with Joy, and Cindy will be doing (selling at) the Portland Antique Expo this weekend. I agreed to help Isabel set up on Friday, so I will be able to do some early buying as well. I'm not really looking for anything big, mostly just crafting supplies because as you all know, I don't have nearly enough.

This week I have to spend a little time cleaning. I was going to go to an auction this week, but I think I will just save my money for Expo. No lunch lady plans this week, but that could change. Today I think I might work on the shopping cart liner I cut out at Joy's last week. I went over to her place to work on some projects, but spent most of the time checking out all the cool stuff Joy will be taking to Expo this weekend.

We also took a little time to make some tags and to enjoy a little lunch.

Yummy Chicken Salad Pita with Chips.

Here are the leftover pretties from the tea party Joy hosted for her Niece's birthday the week before. The little chick with crown, Joy got from Martha. The little wire crowns were made by Cindy.

If you are in the Portland area and want to do some antiquing, come by the Portland Expo this weekend and make sure to say "Hi!" to my good friends.

Happy Monday!

Those nasty spaces are called divs...if you click on HTML instead of compose...just remove all but one div at each spot...then hit will say 'stop showing html errors' click the box and publish again...
