Weekend Wrap Up

Wow, what a weekend! It was a busy, happy, celebratory time here! J graduated with his masters of engineering. Well, technically he graduated in December, but he got to walk the stage this past weekend at the UW Madison ceremony. It was a full day, that's for sure.



We had to get down to campus at 9:30am to pick up his gown and have class photos taken. I entertained his parents while he did this (we got some coffee/tea and sat at the terrace). He had decided to forgo the large UW ceremony (it was all graduates in Camp Randell) because it was very hot and humid and he was more excited about the afternoon ceremony (oh yes, there were two ceremonies). So we headed downtown to get some brunch (and I got myself a couple of bloody mary's). After brunch we headed up to the Kohl Center for the ceremony. It was a nice ceremony with all the engineering graduates.



I am so proud of everything he has accomplished. It's not easy getting a masters degree while still working full time and remodeling a home. I don't know if I could have done it. I'm proud of him and what ever the future hold for us.


And even though it was a super busy weekend, I did find a little bit of time to work on my latest custom project. I better hurry up, this is due next week. Fingers crossed I get it finished in time.


So how was everyone else weekend? Did you attend any graduation ceremonies or are you getting ready to do that? Did you enjoy the weather or did you have some of that scary spring weather? I'd love to hear from you.

Friday Freebie

Oh my, it's Friday again. This weekend is a busy one. This weekend is graduation. J is graduating. Well, technically he graduated in December, but this weekend is the ceremony. We have a lot of things planned for this weekend. Dinner, ceremonies, etc, etc. And on top of all of this, it's also J's birthday. So today I'm making him some boozy cupcakes to celebrate. Yum! I'm so proud of everything he has accomplished and I love him so much.

Okay, okay, I'll stop with this sickening lovey stuff. Not too much else to report. I'm about 70% finished with my custom gold gauntlet. Now I'm just waiting on more studs so I can get that finished up. I'm loving the way it looks (want to see? head on over to instagram). I'll hopefully have a few photos soon, hopefully of it completely finished.

Other than that, I don't have much. I know exciting. But that's fine, that means we can get to that freebie.


This is such a neat freebie.  This pack contains one quick page.
 
Don't have My Memories software, don't worry about it.  You can use my promo code, STMMMS11215, to get $10 off the My Memories Software and then an additional $10 off any purchase in the store. That's a pretty cool deal. The My Memories folks have some really great scrapbooking things. And even if you don't scrapbook, the software and extras are really awesome. I don't scrapbook, but I love the software to make interesting blog post pictures. I even used it to make some labels for my homemade granola bars, so J wouldn't have to guess flavors anymore. Just use STMMMS11215 to get the discounts.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and stay creative.

Friday Freebie

Hello Friday, how have you been? I wish I could be enjoying you (translation: getting work done on my custom order that is due by the end of the month), but I'm stuck here in the lab. Yup, as I write this, I'm sitting in the lab waiting for an assay. So much fun. Now I know what you are going to say. "You shouldn't be on the internet while you're working." Before you get your panties in a bunch and try to report me; today is my day off, I'm not even supposed to be here (aka, I'm not getting paid for this. Well I guess I am because I'm salaried, but I still only get paid a 50% salary and I've already worked 20hrs, so again, I'm not getting paid for this.) I digress. All I'm trying to say is I wish I was in the studio working on things that need to get done instead of sitting in the lab (also, I've been here since 6 am, so I maybe a little crabby). Good news, I shouldn't be here too late, so I should get home early enough to get some beadwork done. Yay!  (I love my job, but sometimes it's frustrating when you are working on things your student should be doing but is apparently too busy to do).

Okay, I'll stop. I sound like a whiny baby today. I'm just tired and cranky, I'll get over it.

This week has been okay. I've been busy, busy, busy in the lab (hence the crabbiness). I've been playing with and enjoying my new camera. Updating and adding new items to the shop. J and I have been working on getting a few things finished up around the house before his graduation (it's next weekend, oh my). Nothing too exciting here.

So I'll just get to this weeks freebie.   


This is such a neat freebie.  This pack contains seven page elements.
