Anyway, I came home with much inspiration and excitement and even though I did not whip up a new rag quilt or a rag doll right away, I did make another card for this months card swap. This one turned out very pretty.
The inspiration come from several different cards that I have seen on some of my favorite blogs. The one I used for my main idea was from Julie's blog at http://paperpleasing.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/10/vintage-christm.html. I have just recently started reading her blog and I love her ideas and designs. I am now her newest blog fan.
As for the rest of the weekend, I went to see the movie Fred Clause. Here is my review of the movie:
I absolutely loved, loved this movie. I was a little skeptical with it having Vince Vaughn in it. In my opinion, he usually plays a obnoxious, sorta rude character that I would not want to personally know and has many times left me with the feeling that perhaps he might be like this in real life. However in this movie, he proved that he can be a sentimental caring character and perhaps maybe someone that I would love to know in real life. I guess I would have to say he is a pretty good Actor, since everytime I see one of his movies, I leave the theater with these thoughts in my mind about him. That has to mean something!!! Also if you do not believe in Santa, you might believe after you leave this movie. Just leaves you filled with good feelings and the excitement of the Christmas Season to come!!!! Go see it for a "FEEL GOOD MOVIE GOOD TIME"
