Craftiness: Checking Account, Beware!

Since I've not been working, my creative side has reared its [pretty] head! I have a feeling I'm spending as much on crafts as I was making when I was working! Oops...I have no idea how that happened...hmmmm. {sarcasm noted}

So, here are a few projects I'm going to be working on in the next 2 weeks. And one I've just finished for a friend. Thanks for [hopefully] starting my card making biz, Melissa! ♥

This is a card I made for Melissa's grandpa. Cute, no?

Next Sunday, Joe and I will be hosting our first Superbowl Bash!
And I will be baking and decorating cookies! Yay! =D

I'm making a sweetheart candy wreath for Valentine's Day. =D
It's going to be so cute! I got the idea here.

Of course, I'm going to bake and decorate more pretty cookies for V-Day!
And I'm going to share them with the fam when we visit NC in these cute lil bags!
I don't remember whose blog I got this idea from (woops), but they're so cute!

(I really can't figure out why this picture won't rotate! Grr!)

Then, I'm going to make 2 more cards. One for the hubby, and one for the bestie. =D I think that completes the list of projects to accomplish in the next two weeks. Along with cleaning, laundry, dishes, and other sorts of household chores. Woohoo!

Oh, and I finished reading The Heretic Queen today. Oh. My. Goodness. It was a fantastic book! If you like love stories, Egypt, and/or history, you will absolutely love this book! Go ahead, order it now! I dare you. You won't be able to put it down! =) Yes, Melissa, I'll be sending it to you soon! I also requested a book from paperbackswap today. =D And, I'm seriously considering ordering Nefertiti, the prequel to The Heretic Queen. So, lots of reading and crafting going on in my future. I totally love this unemployed thing! Now, I can catch up on all the reading I didn't get to do for fun in college. Hehehehe.

Hope everyone has a fantabulous week!

I am looking forward to my little Vday gifts :D I am also loving paperbackswap!! I think the bag idea came from Be Different Act Normal. :) I was going to send you some of those bags but I see that you found some.
My small group girls are going to come make cookies with me next Saturday for our Vday party at small group. Our play dough cookies were requested!! Oh and I know he will LOVE the card!

You should try and sell cards and stuff on etsy! It's a site where everything is handmade (well, mostly ... but everything is rock awesome!)

Could get you a little more spending money for crafty things :)

I cant wait to see what your wreath looks like! I've always wanted to try one but well... we live in an old farmhouse and lord knows I dont want to attract any mice or anything.
