Memorial Weekend - So Charming!


Small Medium Hearts
Happy Saturday! I have a very, very busy Memorial weekend this year. My sister and her husband will be visiting as well as my college roommate from freshman year, I may go to a soccer game on Saturday, and my friend's parents are having us over for a cookout on Monday! I am excited to see everyone, but I'm hoping I don't get too exhausted from all of the fun activities (as if that could happen!). I'm thinking that, because I have Monday off, I will just enjoy the weather.

There is a 75% chance that I will design a few cards and maybe, if I'm feeling motivated enough, I will make a charm bracelet or two. We have TONS of charms here and I've been eyeing some by Blue Moon, especially. They have a few different kinds of heart charms and I thought it might be neat to make a charm bracelet for my mom or grandma, just because. In addition to the Small Medium Hearts (see above left), there are Large Hearts Lost & Found (see right) that would be nice for variety.

If I decide to make a bracelet for myself, too, I would choose the keys. For some reason, I have always thought old skeleton keys were cool. I found one in our basement once, but no one in my family had any clue where it came from (maybe that's why I like them, hehe). Anywho, Blue Moon has Silver Key Charms that I like. Perhaps I will use them to make a necklace instead - I'm personally more of a necklace person these days. I might even save them and use them on a card (check out the Blog Challenge involving tent card and charms - SO many remarkable works!!).

I can't wait to get some work done this weekend in between all of the social fun! Sorry to gush so much, but I really do love weekends...they are like a reset button for my brain - I like to get a bunch of tasks accomplished so that I'm ready for the next week. We shall see how productive I am though! : )

Have a stupendous weekend!!
