Busy, but nothing crafty to share :(

We had a busy weekend and I had/have a bunch of crafty things on my agenda but I have put them off until the last minute.  I started working on a big project yesterday afternoon and don't even have it half finished.  So, today I'm just going to share pics of a couple of cool things I picked up over the weekend.

First is the most awesome color of embossing powder!  I first saw it on Amy's blog Abstracts Mixed with Extracts last week and couldn't stop thinking about it.  I knew immediately the card I wanted to use it on and everything!

The color is Aqua, isn't it beautiful?  Love it :) 

The next thing I picked up was some new Martha Stewart glitter.  I kept hearing people refer to it as chunky glitter but when I went to Michaels this was the closest stuff I could find.  If you know of a Martha Stewart chunky glitter let me know because I think I need that too :)

This is called Icicle Glitter.  I tried to get a good picture so you could see the pieces.  It looks really fine, but the pieces are big.  Does that make sense?  I'm excited to work with this stuff. 

Did you have a nice weekend?  We ran around all day Saturday and took the girls out to ear that night.  Sunday Landry and I went shopping, I picked up some super cute new shoes and a new pair of pants for work.  Mike took Abie to play tennis and then we spent the rest of the day at home.  The weekends go by SO fast.  Hope yours was a good one.

Enjoy your Monday.  I hope you get to do something crafty today.  I know I sure need to :)  Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you back here tomorrow.


  1. this looks awesome. you know i have only used glitter once. mmmmmmm might have to try it again. you always motivate me!!!!!!! thanks!

    have a great day!

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend even though you didn't get much crafting in. I agree it went by way too fast!!

  3. Weekends always go by too fast, I'm thinking they should cram work into two days and give us a 5 day weekend!! hahahaah. One can dream, yes?

    Love your little goodies and can't wait to see what you make with them!!

  4. The weekend always goes by too fast. I found time to craft, but only because AJ golfed with a coworker!

    That glitter looks so awesome, and so does that embossing powder. I splurged on a set of different color embossing powders, and I always use the same color!

  5. Great stuff! That glitter looks neat. You'll have to post if you make anything with it. I'm curious what it looks like on paper.

  6. Your new goodies look yummy :)
    One of my friends that came over for Friday Night scrapbooking had 2 Martha stewart glitter kits. She has some real nice glitter :)
