B-O-R-I-N-G


That sums up my weekend in one word.  Mr. Monkeygirl was off to the races this weekend with the boys and Skaterboy was chillin' with his crew so I had the whole house to myself.  You would think that I would get all kinds of crafty stuff done with nobody to interrupt my creative juices.  Wrong!

I couldn't get my mojo going this weekend and so I got very little accomplished.  I did manage to drag out my stash of beads and organized the whole lot.  I now know exactly what I have and can find what I'm looking for without poking through assorted bags and boxes.  Everything fit into one drawer so I was happy!  But after spending all of that time sorting and organizing, I was out of steam and inspiration. Browsing a few of my favorite catalogs for inspiration did nothing for me because everything I liked required another trip to the bead store and I don't really need more beads!

My only inspiration was in animated form.  I watched the Bee Movie and I kept eyeing Vanessa Bloome's necklace thinking "I could make that".  It took me until tonight to figure out I could Google search for the image so I could mimic it!  (By the way, I liked the movie - it was cute!  I realize that my title might be a little misleading!)

My other animated inspiration was Lego Batman.  I know I am supposed to me a grown woman but I want to play video games.  I sent Skaterboy on a late night rental run but no luck - they were all rented out.  So today I marched my adult self to the store and bought my own game.  I have gotten better, I stopped beating up Robin on accident and figured out how to get rid of Catwoman.  Too bad I have to work tomorrow or I could take on the Joker!

All in all it was a boring, uneventful weekend alone.  I'm glad Mr. M is back or I would have to find more video games to fill my time!

You have an eye for jewelry, that's for sure! I didn't even notice it. I was just wanting her to push that floundering hair back out of her eyes. And I was just a bit too disturbed about the way an annoying bee was trying to get all sexy with a human. Weird movie.

Nice necklace, though. Not a total loss then?

Sugar - I thought it was bizarre that she was all into the Bee. I'm pretty liberal but making a romantic dinner for an insect? - that's just too weird!
