i left the house today. for the first time since last saturday. ben finally went back to school and alex and i met up w/ kelly, miley, holly & wilson for bagels. good times. i got my january it kit.. and it is YUMMY!! i had 2 pages already planned with it before i even got home. love that. the stamp set is to die for.
also love the comments from lurkers... it's always fun to know who's out there. and fun to bounce to new blogs to read. though i have to admit that i *suck* at commenting right now, because most of my blog reading is done w/ sam in my lap and my 1 handed typing skills make for interesting messages. i will draw names from the comments on the last post on monday.. need to get into the scrap mess and see how many happy little packages i can make up. =)
wanted to share a little project that i did for the american crafts blog .. you can see it here. basically sewing 2 pieces of patterned paper together to wrap a small gift... the posted version went to susan's little evan. i am totally going to be using my far too vast PP stash to do this for some holiday gifts!! perfect for gift cards, cds, books.. i used it on a onesie for ev, so slightly bulky stuff will work, too.
the christmas cards i ordered from shutterly came today.. i'm nearly on top of things!! ;) since i didn't manage to send any last year (i was first trimester sick w/ sammy), i thought i should try and get them out on time this year. hoping to make a major dent in my christmas shopping online this weekend. helllloooooooo lego.com for the big boys, and moolka.com for samster. i also need to do a page for hero arts, maybe start my it kit stuff, FiL is coming over tomorrow, my mom on sunday, and hoping to get to the omaha craft mafia's open house to see denise's stuff... oh, and there might be icky freezing rain. and the house could stand a major cleaning, since it didn't get done last weekend when ben was sick. yeesh. rereading that i'm thinking i need a nap.
