Lazy week but got plans!

I had no idea the week would fly by like it did! Last Monday I worked, and the rest of the week I was off..... work is slowing down, too bad, could use some extra money for the Christmasdays! But, can't do anything about it!

Monday after work there was a message on the answering machine that my requested book was in, so I got in the car, and went to the library. Tuesday was my day off, so I decided I'd spend it reading........... in this book........

No of course I don't no if you are as fond of reading as I am, or if you like books by Tess Gerritsen, but.... if you do.... be sure to get this one as soon as it comes out! It's her latest, and oh my it good! A real pageturner..... so Tuesday was a good day! Wednesday even better, cause I decided I had to finish it, and read till about 4.30 pm..... and was I ever so sad there were no more pages, this is a very, very good book!

As the rest of the week was "me" time, I decided to make some more Christmas cards, they are all the same, except for the papers of course, but very easy and quickly to make!
All the used papers are old Christmas lines by Basic Grey, some Figgy Pudding, Dasher and more. Still like them and it's so nice to use the scraps for cards!
Yesterday I had to be in Brantford, and decided to stop by the LSS there! I know, I just ordered lots of goodies, but a girl can never have enough right?

Got some more Distress Ink and 2 bottles of Crackle Paint, love it..... some Sassafrass papers and cardstock stickers (got plans for that!) and a sheer tab album by Maya Road.

Also 3 papers of the latest Christmas line by Basic Grey, Wassail.... and now I regret I didn't get them all, cause they are really gorgeous. Matching cardstock, makes it easier to use it!

And this is what's on my desk now.... between the rest of the mess:-)

The plan is to make a layout with it, again kind of Vintage.... don't know why but I love that style. Hopefully I get something done this afternoon, if not, weekend is just a night away, and as I heard, work is still slow, so probably some days of next week too! I'm making no promisses, but I hope to show the finished layout soon!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Wat een geweldige spulletjes heb je gekocht! En eindelijk dan ook het Sassafras papier! Je kaartjes zien er geweldig uit! Volgens jou dan misschien eenvoudig, maar met een geweldig effect! Jammer dat je niet meer kon werken, een extra centje is zeker in deze tijd van het jaar meer dan welkom! Maar een goed boek lezen is toch ook wel errug lekker!

Dear Marjo,

I left a comment on your blog for the third time...
Hope this one does.
I love the cards and the new BG! The sassafras look good too!
Have fun with all the goodies! Can't wait to see what you are going to make with all this!
Loev and a big hug, Jen.
