Saturday With No Agenda

Ordinarily Saturdays are the busiest day of the week. This Saturday was going to be especially busy because I thought I had a whole new group of samples due by Tuesday. However, by 5:00pm Friday all plans had been post-poned. So I am sitting here wondering what to do with this "found day." There are too many choices so perhaps another cup of coffee is in order.
Here are my happy crafty links for Saturday!
