The one where I realize I should have saved the "green LO" for Paddy's Day!... ;)

I actually HAD an LO that was "green" (and black and white, sure. But still.) that would have worked well for a Paddy's Day post, but I already blogged it.
Oh well. Thinking in advance. Not my strongest trait. Actually... Thinking at all. Not exactly my forte. ;)

I had a busy weekend! It started with a work-date (mixed with pleasure) for Inzpira that I'll show you in due time.
Then, that evening, DH and I went out for on Paddy's Day. A nice walk in the scenic town of Lund, followed by a three course meal (starting with bubbly) and a nice wine at a restaurant. Then we hitched a ride with the inlaws, who's seen a show, and went to their place where we played a very silly board game called "How the f*** did you know that?", and had some more wine. Loads of fun!

Come Sunday, we grabbed sushi from our fave place, and swung by Pistachia (who has THE most delicious ice cream) for dessert. Then we went back home where we spent the evening mostly relaxing and watching Franklin & Bash.
DH had a VERY early morning today, and I get up when he does, so it was lovely to just take it easy and park our bums on the couch, last night. :)

Today, my introductory post for Pyssloteket is up. I was offered a guest designer spot, and it was "an offer I couldn't refuse". Not that I tried very hard... ;) Great shop, fab owner who cracks me up - and a wonderful kit to play with. (Not to mention a big selection of The Crafter's Workshop Templates that just arrived - and more will arrive soon - in the shop. I just happened to order a few. Like... two. Or eleven... *admits*)
Win/win for sure! :D

"My" days of blogging will be Fridays of even weeks - so pop by their blog this Friday and the Friday two weeks after that (etc.) for my stuff. Pop by inbetween for wonderful things by the rest of the gals! :D

This? Not for Pyssloteket, but one of the LOs I made at the craft marathon. :)
Challenge: Bingo. "My row" contained swirl, circles, flowers & splats of paint.
