We kind-of missed the entire middle of the perfect afternoon, though. (but it was so worth it!) The whole family, yep all six of us, got in the bed and took a two hour long nap! Daddy, me, both boys, both pups… It was magic!
So, I just wanted to check in today and share some stuff that’s making me happy right now. Lots of gorgeous scrapbook inspiration out there right now and what’s this: http://aliedwards.typepad.com/_a_/2008/05/words-photos-da.html ? She hasn’t dropped any hints or anything, and then out of the blue, an email… hmmmm. Can’t wait to see what it’s all about.
Why didn’t it ever occur to me to use eyelets in such a cool way? I’ve got a clear book in my stash, just waiting to be something! Here’s the link to the rest of the book, if you’d like to check it out: http://donnadowney.typepad.com/simply_me/2008/04/hybrid.html . I love her "Painting a Day" project so much that I’ve been slowly ordering the supplies I need to make my first one. It involves a tree branch, maybe a little bird…lots of paint. Gotta find a cool quote that means something to me! Here are all her daily paintings: http://donnadowney.typepad.com/photos/a_painting_a_day/index.html .
Absolutely gorgeous! And if you find yourself needing it too, here are all the instructions: http://twopeasinabucket.kaboose.com/nsd08/pdf/nsd_artsy_paper.pdf .
And finally, wanted to share some music that I’m finding really cool and fun… I guess they were around for a while and now have already broken up, but they’re new to me. It’s a band called Nickel Creek and here’s a video of my new favorite song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUC8xH4WIh4 . Ooooo, it’s so purdy! lalalala
Got a busy week again this week and going to have a very happy Bee, who turns six this Saturday. He’ll have a little party at school on Friday and then we’re off to Colorado for a family party on Saturday. I hope he’ll make it this week and not just pass out from anticipation! lol
My song’s over now. Guess I’ll go find my honey and boys. I bet they’re in the back yard, enjoying the nice weather, without me… gotta run.
