Weekend Favorites

I have to keep the words few and far between today. We have a little birthday get-together happening this weekend in honor of Boring Office Guy, and I still have a lot of prep work to do. And when I say “prep work” I don’t mean cool, party-related stuff, but embarassing stuff like disassembling the Christmas tree and putting away accumulated piles of junk.

I can’t help but think how much fun I could have really doing up the house for a party (some of the links below give me great ideas, actually) if I had only kept it reasonably clean. Instead, I spend the day before decluttering and muttering under my breath. Oh, such fun!

Flickr Favorites


I thought I’d save you the extra click to Flickr, and just include the photo credits right here this time.

You’re welcome 🙂

Around the web

Knitting and Crocheting


General Craftiness

So, yes, I’ll be hanging out with my vacuum and dust cloth today and working up a sweat doing things I really don’t want to do. But hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be making some chocolate cupcakes and hanging up birthday banners and enjoying myself before company comes! (I’ll enjoy myself while they’re here, too, of course…)

Have a great weekend!
