A Good Weekend

What makes a good weekend? For me, it starts on Friday night listening to my son do color for a college hockey game on a far-away Minnesota radio station that streams over the internet and into my laptop, which was literally on my lap so I could hear every word. (This is when I really love technology!) Then on Saturday, having a few hours to myself to visit an antique show, a thrift store and a couple of craft stores. I guess I wasn't in a spendy mood because I didn't come home with much, but I did find a vintage trade card that will be the inspiration for my tags for Karla's Puppy Love Swap and that made me happy. Perhaps the sweetest part was Sunday morning, lounging in bed for awhile with a cup of coffee and all these beautiful magazines from Somerset. I have had a weakness for magazines since I was a kid (anyone remember Jack & Jill?), but I don't think any publisher has consisently awed me the way Somerset has. The new Somerset In Love is so pretty and I can't wait to see Marie. Eventually, I pulled myself out of bed and started working on those tags because you just can't read these magazines for long without being inspired to go make something beautiful yourself.

Sounds like the perfect weekend!
I just bought In Love yesterday and was getting quite inspired too:)
Glad to hear you're in on the Puppy Love tag swap too. I can't wait to get started on mine.
Have a good week...Marilyn:)

I too love the Somerset publications. They know how to pull the $$ out of my wallet! Fortunately, I try to use a 40% off coupon each time I buy one, and it makes it better.
Love the inspiration too and curling up in bed with one is so wonderful.
