Rockin' My World Friday

Happy Friday folks!

Just a few small things rockin me this week.

First and foremost, Mr R and I having the day off work today. We were supposed to be in Florida right now, but since we decided to buy the property, decided not to go this year so as to save money. As we were a bit down about missing the hol this year we planned a long weekend in November as a bit of a mini-break.

A leisurely trip to a neighbourhood restaurant for a nummy breakfast.

A trip to the local thrift shop which netted me 5 new hardcover books for only $20!

The eagle-eyed who visited Wednesdays post may have noticed that my favorite Ott light now has a twin--purchased at 65% off!!!

I did spend some time measuring out the space in our bedroom and planning where to put all the junk stuff in my craft room. It seems that with a little skill I will be able to fit nearly everything in there except the corner section of my desk. I will have to have a good sort out and organize as over the Christmas holidays we will be setting up the nursery in my *sob* soon to be former studio. Ah well, it's all worth it as a new grandbaby in the house will be a treat!

To see what has others doing a happy-dance, pop over and visit Virginia for the low-down.

Hope everyone has a fab week and thanks for stopping by!

It's time for the middle-of-the-week peek at the glorious creative spaces of others. Pop over and see Julia and get your desk space fix.

I've been absent from posting for the last couple of weeks, but when I was here last I was working on cutting all my scraps into card-sized pieces. Shouldn't take long said she to herself--HA! It appears I was only fooling myself. Needless to say I got sick and tired of trimming and put the whole lot away to be tackled at a later date. Said later date has still not arrived.

I do find myself in need of a birthday card, so have pulled out papers, stamps etc. in planning. In the far corner you can see the magazine with the general idea, but obviously the colours are different and instead of snowflakes I will be using butterflies. A bit of a butterfly addiction on cards lately.

Anyhow, off to visit some desks before I have to feed the wonderful fam dindins.

Thanks for stopping by.

Rockin' My World Friday

Once again Friday has rolled around and it's time to share what has been putting the spin in my world this week.

As always, Mr R who always rocks my week, and my whole world in fact.

The Halloween costumes of the little ones who came calling. It always makes me smile to see the kids dressed up and having a great time getting hoards of candy.

A trip to the bookstore for new magazines.

Getting my scraps organized for quick card making.

A new craft storage purchase.

Another pound down in the weight loss.

Friday night take away for dinner. (Yay, no cooking!)

Not having to set my alarm and get up early tomorrow. I love me a good lay-in!

That's it for me, so pop on over to Virginia's house and see what has been spreading happiness to other peoples weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!
