Smooshed Junk

Where does the weekend go? I can't believe I have to go back to work already! I need a course in time management. I need to manage to find more time to spend in my Bubble making cards and pretending I am creative and productive.

I shouldn't complain. I did take Friday off to go with a friend to JunkStock in Omaha, NE. It was great fun. So much fun in fact that I went back on Saturday with husband dearest. Junk, crafts, kettle corn, antiques, more junk, festival food, lots of walking, kettle corn, live music, interesting people, more junk (did I mention kettle corn?) was a great two days! Even though I don't 'do crafts' (just cards) I came away inspired.

Once I take a photo of my lovely purchases I will post them! First I have to do a little work on a couple of them...note to self - take before and after photos! I bought a print that needs a frame and I bought a little something/something for my sissies! Bet they will be THRILLED to find out I bought THEM some "junk" too!

Here's to getting tired and inspired all at the same time, hoping for better time management skills, and discovering 'treasures' amid 'the junk'!
