Weekend Update

Hey there. How are you guys doing this weekend? Well, I'm happy to say I'm having a relaxing afternoon, after an already busy start of the weekend. This morning was Sandy Hancock's Quarterly Demonstrator meeting at the Spaghetti Factory, which is in Duarte, CA. For those of you not local to the area, that's about 50 miles from my house. So, I got to start off my weekend with more driving! It was well worth it though. I definitely came back with lots of great ideas, and I was even asked to share some ideas for the Holidays. Here are a couple pictures of my display table {if you're a regular to my blog, you'll probably recognize a couple of things - wink}. Notice the wreath on the left? It's made out of 3 different Stampin'Up! ribbons tied around a Chipboard skeleton {It's the On Board Batch of Blooms chipboard pack in the SU! catalog}. I'll be posting the details of how I made this wreath sometime this week, so check back soon!
These are the swaps I made for the meeting - which I had shared on this post. I've really taken a liking to the pink Christmas card this season. Can you tell? So, that's a quick look at my table. I'll share more pictures from the meeting in my posts this week as well :)

Now, I want to share something non-stamping with you guys. Did I tell you guys how lucky I am to have such a wonderful husband, who also loves to cook? Well, here's the dish we had last night - it was scrumptious!
It's Michael's Scallop Salad topped with parmesan slices, which had homemade croutons, and some yummy veggies - corn, red bell pepper, radish, and avocado. And he made his own dressing, too - a nice vinegarette with a splash of lemon juice. It truly was delish!

So, why do I digress about my husband's food? Well, my ultimate goal is to create a cookbook of his original recipes and publish it using the My Digital Studio! Now, if I get my act together, I can take pictures and put out say a dozen of his recipes to start with. Call it my pet project :) Since I haven't really photographed much food, it'll be good practice for me. So, on occasion, I may share some more of my hubby's creations with you on the good ol' blog :)

Well, that's it for now. Hope you enjoy your weekend! I'll catch up with you guys later. Ciao!
