So, I spent this past weekend at another Scrapbooking Retreat. Still don't scrapbook, but it was a great time of retreat, fellowship, way too much junk food, not enough sleep, laughter, tears, stories and prayers.
We hemmed and hawed and fretted over whether we should go or not, what with Rita bearing down on Texas and not being sure where she'd land and when and how crazy it would be. BUT, after lots of looking at the forecasts and many, many "reply-to-all" emails, we finally decided it was a go.
So, half day of work on Friday. Then I met my carpool buddies, Kelly and Heather, at Heather's house. She has a new Tahoe and volunteered to drive. So, we loaded up and headed out about noon. Quick lunch in Hillsboro, then we arrived at Summer's Mill about 3:00.
We unloaded, set up, and got to work. Heather's hobby isn't scrapbooking either, but jewelry making. And she makes some great stuff! Pretty much all my jewelry is somthing that she has made. I worked on mounting some new Stampin' Up! stamp sets, made a couple of cards, cleaned out magazines (I'm hopelessly behind.....) and finalizing my invitations for my annual Christmas open house. I know, it's way early for Christmas. BUT, I decided I wanted to do something a little different this year for the invites and this was my one shot with lots of time to get it all done. So, done it is!
We hopped back in the car about 1:00 yesterday to come home. Thankfully, the traffic was not bad at all - going northbound, that is. The southbound side of I-35 was pretty full, though, probably with folks headed back to the Houston area.
So, here we are now.....another Monday!
