Friday Freebie

Is it really Friday already? This week really went by in a flash. Where does the time go? Though the week went fast, I don't have much to share. I upgraded to Windows 10. I'm liking it, but now my Office won't open, so that's not really cool.

I did get the final word on whether my boss was staying in WI or going to Austin. He's going to Austin, so that means it's time for me to start looking for a new job or somehow up my Etsy sales. I have a feeling that getting a new job is the way I will go. It was a difficult day when I found out, but I'll be fine. I always am. That's just how academia works. You never know when funding will run out or when someone will leave for a better opportunity. It's just how it works. So now I have a couple months to find something new or decide what else I can do. Like I said, I'll be fine and get through this.

Not much else happened this week. I'm putting the finishing touches on my custom order and should have that finished by this afternoon. I'll be happy to get that finished.

That's about it. I guess learning that you're loosing your positions is enough news for one week. So let's get to this weeks freebie.


This is such a neat freebie.  This pack contains 3 digital pages and 5 page elements.
 
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.

Weekend Wrap Up

Hello Monday! Well, it's time to start the week and get things going. So, what happened this past weekend? Not too much. We got some work done around the house. On Saturday J installed an air conditioner in the garage. He's not sure how much he's going to use it, but it will be nice to have on the hot, humid days.


We also got the deck stained. And it looks so nice. We still need to do the facial boards between the stairs, but the hard part is finished. I'm very happy with how it looks. I can't wait for us to put the furniture up there so we can enjoy it again.


And while we were out working on the deck, we had an audience. We have baby bunnies. They are so cute and I just want to squish them, but I know they need to be left alone. There are two of them and they are big enough to be out and about and play. I love watching them.


And the most exciting news. I have zucchini in the garden. a lot of zucchini. I'm so excited and I'm already planning all the different things I can make with them.

I didn't get a ton of beadwork finished this past weekend, so that means I will have to work overtime this week to get everything finished. But, that's okay. 

What did everyone else do this past weekend? Did you enjoy nice weather? Did you get work done around the house or did you get some artsy stuff done? I'd love to hear about it.

Friday Freebie

Well another week has passed and it's Friday again. It was a pretty busy week here and it's going to be a busy weekend. We have to stain the deck on Saturday. I know that sounds like so much fun. I'm sure most of you are just dying to come over and help. But that's okay, we've got this. ;-) And on Saturday J's parents are stopping by. Busy, busy weekend.

So what have I accomplished this week? Let me think. I finished the beadwork on a custom order. I've been working on a secret project that I hope to finish soon. I've been a busy little bee in the lab. I finished my photo composition class, reviewed my exposure class, and finished my black and white photography class. And I've been working on my photography. I can take all the classes I want, I'll never get any better if I don't go out and practice. I've started adding things to my Zazzle store, so go check it out. I've also thought about putting stuff up on CafePress. If anyone has any experience with CafePress, I'd love to hear from you.

But enough about that, let's get to today's freebie.


This is such a neat freebie.  This pack contains 54 page elements.

Weekend Wrap Up

Monday, Monday. This weekend just seemed to fly by and it's not like we were really all that busy. J worked in the garage for most of the weekend (how and why in this muggy hot weather, only he knows). I worked on a few new projects.


This is the start to a custom cuff. I'm excited to see how this looks like when finished (when am I not). It's not the color scheme I normally go with, but that's the fun of doing custom work, you get to work in patterns or colors you normally wouldn't.

I'm also working on another project, but that one will have to wait a little bit to be shown off. Maybe next week some time.

Other then that, I didn't really do much else. I did buy a new pair of shows. Yay. Fun.


I also got a new bag.


I'm thinking about using it as a camera bag. It's quite large and I think it would make a good bag for day trips. I already have a nice insert that will fit almost perfectly. Yay, new bag.

So it was a pretty boring weekend. Had to get housework done as well as bead projects. Sometimes you don't get to have a fun weekend when there is work to be done.

What did everyone else do? Did you get out and have some fun?
