Filling the Hours

It's a new day and I made a choice to be happy, relax and just enjoy my time off of work during all this mess.  I got the check from my retirement fund and went early this morning to deposit it in my account.  I came home and paid the bills currently due and took a sigh of relief.  

The only problem I'm having at the moment,  is trying to keep myself busy.  I decided to finish up these place mats I started on a few months ago.  I was browsing Pinterest and saw a similar set from Anthropologie for a crazy amount of money!   I loved them so much that I decided to make my own.

They're not exactly like the ones from Anthropologie, but they are canvas  like theirs and have decorative stitching in similar colors.  I made mine reversible,  with a white canvas on the other side.  The tan canvas is actually a drop cloth from Amazon.  For $12 you get a lot of material.

I started working on my Christmas cards about a week ago,  with the idea that I would be recovering from shoulder surgery and not be able to do them later.  I love making cards with my Silhouette Cameo.  Here's a prototype of the easel type cards I'm making.  I saw a very similar one on Pinterest and loved the style of it.  

Tomorrow I'm going to get up early and head to Costco.  It's a mad-house on the weekends, so I'm grateful to have a day during the week that I can go.  Can't beat their prices on whole bean coffee, paper towels and toilet paper.  

I hope you are having a wonderful day!
