So long, farewell...

No i am not deleting my blog or going on a blog sabbatical. I am not even going on vacation. I am moving... to typepad. I have been considering a move to typepad for quite some time now. With a ton of help and support from some friends (Vallen, Kristin, Ky, Sally and Toni) I have been able to construct my new blog. I am really excited about the new possibilities I have there. Especially being able to email you directly via your comments.

So this is a formal invitation to invite you to my new blog.

I don't want to lose contact with any of you so please change your bookmarks etc.

See you all on the other side.

hugs, jen

some non-christmas crafting

I have been really busy trying to get the invitations out for my sister's baby shower.
They came out really cute. (Or at least I think so)

Here is the full view of the invitation and then how I wrapped them up to ship out.

How's everyone holding up? Not too stressed out I hope. I never got around to getting those Christmas cards out. Still thinking by New Year's but we'll see.

Santa, are you drunk?

So here is the "Santa" pic we took this year. You know how you are so busy looking to make sure the kids look cute? Yeah we didn't even think to look at dear, old and I mean OLD Santa. My friend Kristin nailed it when she said, He looks like he has the weight of the world around his neck with that key thing. She also got quite a giggle out of the fact that my kids were wearing shorts in this pic. Being a So Cal native I sometimes forget that others of you are dealing with "weather" like Kristin was a couple weeks ago.
1 degree. Yikes!

Ok gotta go box, wrap, create etc. I think I might call in sick tomorrow. * cough* (I really am sick I swear)

Christmas cute everywhere

After being totally obsessed with these. (I have made 6) I realized it was high time for me to start thinking about Christmas cards. Unfortunately with this head cold my mind is blank. Except that they will have a cute pic of my kids somewhere in it or on it. Yet I haven't even made an attempt to do what Sally is doing. So I have been hanging out in denial, looking at all the cute things you have been making. Have you seen these? Pure distraction! I must try some. Even a little bird's little bird is getting into the act. I am five times her age and don't think I have ever made anything this cute. All I can say is when is the etsy shop opening Mia? I'm ready to buy.

Keep up the good work ladies. I may just have to send out New Years cards this year.
