SUPER SATURDAY!

I'm not talking about the Relief Society Super Saturday where you go and make half a craft and stick it in the basement for a decade until you stumble across it and a)see that it is half finished, b) realize you don't have the pieces to finish it and c)it was ugly to begin with.

I don't go to those anymore. I'm old and jaded. I know mine won't be as cute as the sample. I know that when the teacher says, "anyone can do this," she's not talking about me.

I sometimes go to socialize and help others with their crafts. But I couldn't go this year because we had a big wedding that day.

If you know me or have read this blog, you know that around this house - EVERY Saturday is SUPER SATURDAY.

1) My sister in law and I hosted a baby shower this morning. It was for a friend who is having her 6th. She didn't want it to be a big deal so we kept it low key. But the quiche, caramel rolls, mini pumpkin muffins with teeny baby pacifers and fruit tray were yummy!

2) We went to lunch with my aunt and cousin who are in town for the weekend. They gave me a really cute custom calendar that my cousin makes and sells through her Etsy shop - if I knew how to link - I would!

3) We put the Christmas lights up on the house. Brian worked on this during the shower and then after lunch, I assisted in small ways.....pointing and directing, holding the ladder, handing up extra bulbs and fuses, running to the basement to reset the fuses. That could be a whole different post though!

4) In 30 minutes we are going to a wedding reception downtown. Well actually just before I typed that, Brian called me into the office and handed me a second invitation that he had to another reception 45 minutes in the opposite direction of downtown. My question - Why wasn't that taped to the wedding reception invitation wall with all the other wedding invitations? Hmmmmm.... so..enough blogging. I have to go get dressed.

5) But also, back to SUPER SATURDAY. I had a craft of my own! Since I had so much success drilling out baby pumpkins and putting tea lights in them, I decided to expand. Here was todays Harvest Project.
Just like all projects, it looked way cuter in my imagination. I want to live in my imagination! Everything is way cuter there.

I think your pumpkins look cute! I love the idea.

Cute centerpiece! I had to laugh at the Super Saturday comments. Remember when we sat next to each other and were dismayed to discover that we were going to have to intrically handsew those little finger puppets? Guess where mine are now? In a paper bag on top of my fridge, unfinished, no joke.

Oh Rachael! I came across that bag in my craft closet earlier this summer. I knew immediately what it was and didn't even open the bag. I just threw it away.

My husband said you must be out of your gourd. : ) I, on the other hand, am very impressed.
