This past weekend I actually scrapped for 16 hours!!! Yes, that's right...16 hours! Tiffany had a crop at her parent's house where me and about 24 other people scrapped our little hearts out! The crop started at 9am, but I didn't get sat down and settled until about 10am. Take time out for grazing on all the delish food sitting out and time out to do the zip line, and then I left about 3am! Yikes! But, I got soooo much stuff done! I'm ready to do it again! LOL! What all did I get done? I got 24 personalized notecards done for my stepmother-in-law (see post below for photo), 60 Thank You's to match bridal shower invites I did a couple months ago (once again, see post below for photo), a 5x7 frame made up with a cute little thing for my stepmother-in-laws kitchen (which I forgot to take a photo of, but I will), and figured out what card fronts I'm going to do for the swaps at the Stampin' Up convention in August. Once I got that figured out, I started putting together 50 3-layered stars and stamping images....my plan is to make 50 of one style and 50 of the other. I'll post photos of those later, too. Go check out some photos on Tiffany's blog.

I came home from work Sunday to Mara and Micah in the kitchen with a ton of ingredients all over the place! They were making my favorite cookies...chocolate chip....by themselves. Where was Steve? Taking a nap. He told them to follow the recipe. Well....Mara did the best she could, bless her heart. She took out what she thought was flour, but wasn't. It was powdered sugar! Thank goodness she didn't put in the whole 2 1/2 cups, but only 1 cup. She couldn't find a teaspoon for the vanilla, baking soda, etc, so she just used a tablespoon. That left me, who is severely baking impaired to fix because Steve refused to get up and help. I just starting throwing various stuff in to try and compensate. They ended up turning out ok...a little heavy on the baking soda, but all the chocolate chips I threw in tend to cover up that taste quite a bit!
Happpy Mother's Day!!!

Now to work on some stunning cards to be swappin'!
