More is More When it Comes to Pearls

Rain - all weekend. So explain to me why I didn't get a dozen or two cards made? I tinker too much! Or to quote my Daddy: I PUTZ around too much. A perfectly good rainy weekend and what do I have to show for it? Reorganized craft area, a pot of spaghetti and meat sauce for the hubby to have for lunches this week, a dusted living room, laundry washed, dried, folded and put away, several hours of computer work - for my job, four beds worth of linens washed and reapplied, but only ONE CARD! I think I need a Weekend Time Management Course. Or better yet a Weekend Priority Management Course.

Then to top it off I went a little pearl crazy. I guess since I didn't make more than one card I felt the need to over use pearls? I can't explain it. It looks more like a pin cushion than a card!
