Scrappy Sunday-- Post-Bar Edition

This past week has been a crazy whirlwind. First, the bar on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then, a huge amount of pushed-off errands on Thursday (including a bday gift for my hubby, part of which mysteriously disappeared from my bag. So if you live in Elizabeth, NJ and see a stuffed penguin, please call me.). Then, flying to Michigan on Friday. Where I am now, soaking up the sun from inside a Starbucks. My kind of summer livin'.

First up, a little card. As I mentioned before, I have NO IDEA what to do with these guys. Maybe if I wasn't so abysmal at remembering birthdays, they could be useful. Hmmmm.....


This next layout somewhat contradicts my post from last week, but that's life--inconsistent sometimes, right? This one is an ode to my "inner Martha," evidenced by a handmade tag adorning a big basket of homemade cookies. I've only done this once in my life, mind you. But nevermind that.

And in other news, my hubby's garden on our terrace has been yielding fruit......a lot of it.

Our beautiful tomatoes:
And us with our little harvest:
Really nothing like eating tomatoes fresh and toasty from the sun. Especially when you don't have to travel to a special tomato-picking farm to experience it.

So that's it--my four day summer in a nutshell. Because it's not really summer when you're holed up indoors studying New York civil procedure. Yech.

What have YOU been up to this week? Do any of you have gardens, too?

  1. Such a cute card - and a pretty layout :) I just had a cucumber for lunch that was grown in my MIL garden. Amazing how much better it tastes than ones avaliable in the grocery store!

  3. Love that card! I need to use that bicycle chipboard. We have tomato plants in a pot, but they're not doing much right now. I don't think we're going to get any tomatoes this year!

  5. My inner Martha hates to garden - so I am totally impressed with your tomatoes!
    Love your cute projects and how you used all that AC chipboard. Now I feel the urge to use mine.
    You & your hubby are adorable!

  13. Oh, cute! Love the inner-Martha ode. :) he he. And lovely tomatoes! I'm jealous - no garden, here. Our apartment = no yard, we're hoping to one day have part of a community plot so we can grow our own. :)
