Monday and upcoming...

Hi there!

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.  Mine was very relaxing with a little crafting so that was nice.  It's the end of the academic year here and April is always a crazy month.  In fact, the whole 2nd semester in general is pretty crazy.  Here's a recap of my weekend.

Friday night I chaperoned the college's semi-formal event held off-campus.  Not only was this my first semi-formal at the college I work at, first semi-formal in my college career (both as a student and employee)!  It was fun!  There were only a handful of incidents but nothing the rest of the chaperones and I couldn't handle.   All of the students and chaperones had fun and the food was so good!  I ordered the parmesan crusted chicken which also came with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus.  Not eating lunch on Friday made me very hungry for the dinner that night.  I ate everything except for the asparagus.  I'm not a veggie's kind of guy.  Don't judge.  haha.  :)  The only complaint I had was that the music was so loud!  I reflected back later that night that I realized I'm getting old when music is becoming too loud.  :)  I'm OK with that though.

Saturday I slept in and woke up with a headache so I tried to continue to sleep it off (which usually works).  This time it didn't.  :(  So I got up and got some caffeine in me and that seemed to help.  I made the Easter thank you card for my parents with video and spent the rest of the evening trying to edit the video and upload it to YouTube as well as write my post.  Because I had slept most of the day away, I couldn't fall asleep until about 6:45 a.m. Sunday morning.  Rough!

I wound up waking up around 11:30 and stayed awake because I knew that I wouldn't sleep tonite if anything.  There was no crafting done today, just relaxed and caught up on tv.  Tonite was staff meeting and an open house to show the students what their rooms look like for next year.  All went well!  Now, it's 12:30 a.m. and I have to be to work in 8 hours.  Am I tired?  Not one bit...  Can I craft?  No.  It's quiet hours and I worry that my Cricut will wake the other residents up so here I sit.  I've been looking a lot into SU and CTMH.  I've been in contact with a couple people and have a lot of thinking to do.  I really like how CTMH coordinates with all of their things.  The only thing I worry about is how expensive it is.  I'll have to figure something out.  I'm going to need to think some more.

Tomorrow night, I'm planning on making a wedding card for a friend.  That will be my next task.  I'll be sure to post a video on it.  Speaking of, I have heard that the last video was a weird angle.  I'm going to ove my camera to another angle and see if that helps.  Be sure to let me know what angle you like best so I can finally decide what will work nicely.  :)  Stay tuned for that project!

Craft on,


  1. Sounds like you had a bit of a rough weekend too!! I hate when I get migraines... I sleep all day, and by the time I'm feeling better it's 9 o'clock at night and now I'm wide awake! Lol! Can't wait to see the wedding card and the new video!

    I thought your last video was fine, but that's just my 2 cents :-)

    1. Thanks, Jessica! I did have a rough weekend. I totally know what you mean about looking at the clock and realizing...holy moly, it's 9? PM?!? That's what happened to me last night. I couldn't sleep and was up until 5:00/5:30 a.m. So of course, all I could do was think and think some more. I'm feeling it today and might not get this card done after all. There's always tomorrow. I may just go to bed at 10 and do the card tomorrow. That is, unless I get my second wind. :)

      Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it. Being a new videographer (??) I'm still trying to figure everything out, so i appreciate everyone's patience. :)
