Oh my it's been so long since I've had a great morning of thrifting and I was able to get one today! Despite a sort of rough night with teething (or something) Tuesday I got up this morning and headed out with Sarah.
I found my all time favorite towels; yummy, yummy green. And the pink floral ones I thought would be fun for Tuesday. The vintage sheets will go well with some sheets I got in a vintage sheet swap I participated in:
That picture is of my favorites—see the rest on my flickr. Back to today:
I'm so excited about this light up santa! How cute is he, so jolly! I'm always looking for cool Christmas stuff, but it's usually so expensive, he was only five bucks, and the perfectly colored green oranaments two dollars. The little shaker I'll fill up with cinnimon and sugar. The lided measuring cup and metal coasters are new "toys" for Tuesday, she loves stuff like that. The step stool she's still a ways off from being able to use. Question: what did you use before your kids were tall enough to use one of these, I think she needs to grow about a foot to get to the sink with this, and that's going to take a while! I might have Bj build something... ideas?
The other thing I've been doing is getting excited about a new community on Big Picture. I signed up for the Library of Memories community, which is going to be full of prompts, ideas, and chat about using Stacy's system (these two books talk about it). I worked on organizing my albums:
Updating the label holders and workign on title pages for albums/sections:
They are all this basic design. I think I made ten or so in the last few days:
So fun to look at pictures like that. And because my supplies were out...
A layout about missing doing fine art stuff.
And a layout about how much I love my little sparkle pants, or course. I finally used one of the fun half circle stitched pages Sarah and I made.
Sarah's mom made me some of these crocheted hearts. Yes, you can all be jealous she is my friend now :) Actually it's funny because we were going through my albums and she saw this layout. She said, "Oh I wanted those socks so badly" (I gave them away on here because they were too big for me) and I replied, "well why didn't I give them to you?" And she said because we didn't really know each other then. Sometimes it seems crazy I met a good friend like that online! Thank goodness she commented (hint hint) :)
Also if the person is out there who got those socks... where are they? I never got pictures... I miss them!
