When I was telling my dad about all of the fun things I did this weekend (and how late I was out), I could tell he was shaking his head when he asked me, “Do you think you’re 20 and in college again?” I had more than my fair share of fun this last weekend. In fact, I feel a little guilty that I was gone so much, but that still didn’t stop me from having a blast.
Thursday night I went out with some of the ladies in the neighborhood (you can see what I wore here). We had a fabulous dinner & such a great time getting to know each other better.

Friday night I had the pleasure of hanging out with a few old friends & meeting some new ones while we crafted up a storm. Elmer’s provided us with all of the tools, we just had to bring our own paper & have a project in mind. My friend, Annie, had made a hand-cut P for Penelope’s second birthday (see it here) and now that Felix is going to be joining Penelope in her room in the next little bit, I thought I’d make him a matching one.
I drafted the F backwards before I cut it. This F is 100% analog!
Here are better pics of my projects:
I could’ve easily just designed something on the computer & cut it out with my Silhouette, but it was nice to get out the ruler & pencil to hand draft Felix’s F. It’s been a while since I’ve done something analog like that. It took about an hour to draft & cut the F, so while we were chatting, I thought I’d play around with more of my paper & did a little free form hand cut design. I’m not quite sure where I’m going to put it, but I like how it turned out. It reminds me of my high school graphics days when I’d hand cut ruby-lith for silkscreening tshirts. It’s been 8 years since I took that class (and how many moves? at least 8) and I still have some of my original hand-cuts.
I may have eaten like 10 of these. Oreo + cream cheese + chocolate = heaven
We had a great time over at Ashlee’s house chatting, projecting and eating that we didn’t start wrapping things up until around 11:30. Even then, I couldn’t stop visiting. It wasn’t until nearly 1:30 that I made my way home. I wonder why Chris let me out of the house on Saturday for another meet up! Oh Chris, you always let me do what I want. You need a major award.
Did you do anything fun this weekend? I sure hope you did. I’ll be posting about Saturday’s swap meet as soon as I have some pics to share. I’m excited to show you a few cool pieces I snagged while there!
