Productive...

don't you just love a productive week! by the time the end of the week rolls around you're exhausted but it feels good to get so many things done!
so i went to "once upon a child" yesterday to drop off some clothes that i had in tubs from our garage sale last summer. i'm not sure why i hadn't gotten rid of them yet...i think i was hanging on to them because i just wasn't ready to let them go! lots of baby clothes and maternity clothes. anyway, i had never really shopped at a second hand store before. i have been there looking for junky furniture that i could spruce up but never looking for clothes. i had a few minutes to waste while they looked through my stuff so i thought i'd look down the isle that had lauren's size.... i was totally shocked! they had tons of cute shorts and skirts that looked brand new. i even found an old navy skirt w/ the tag still on.... i ended up buying 2 pairs of shorts and 2 denim skirts for $15. and it all looks like new! i couldn't believe it! i was so excited! now, don't get me wrong, there was plenty of stuff in there that wasn't so great! i love a good deal!
i finally finished up an assignment that had been hanging over my head. i had actually done it once but apparently didn't understand the assignment and i needed to go back and finish it up. with that being done i thought i could play around a bit since i had a huge mess going anyway....i did these 2 layouts....of course my scanner cut off a 1/4" off the right side of my pages. hate that thing.... the "silly girls" layout i used the jenni bowlin kit from april. i added the MM letter stickers. and the "duck watching" layout is one i did for the scenic route monthly challenge. the challenge was to use their kraft pattern paper.... i've been meaning to scrap these photos for a long time and the paper seemed to be a pretty good fit....

tomorrow i'm painting! we picked up some paint to touch up some of the rooms that haven't been painted a different color. when we moved in to our house the builder had painted every room a nice khaki color, but had used flat paint! so rooms like my laundry room and 1/2 bath off of my kitchen really need a new coat of paint! shouldn't take me too long. it's the prep work that takes forever....
i've been trying to type this entry all day...so i had better spell check and get it posted before i lose it....

Hi Kori! Darling layouts. Love the pictures of the ducks. Feeding ducks is a favorite activity of ours also. We save all of the heels to our bread and every couple of months we find some well diserving ducks to have a snack:)! Whenever my kids don't want to eat their crusts they give me the excuse that the ducks need it more than they do! Ha ha ha!

Super cute layouts, Kori! Glad you had a productive week. I miss the way you used to motivate me. I need a trip to your house to kick me into gear to paint MY house!
