Totally Automatic Robot she built this afternoon...
Loving my new boots and tall socks
Feet are tired after long day...must have Danskos on...little funny with tall socks

School Skating party...she had fun but all the bigger kids scared her so she
only skated for the first part and then went to the class table to color. I was super proud of her....xo

Just been thinking a lot lately about just how lucky I am. I have such a magnificent husband, an amazing and gorgeous daughter and so many wonderful friends and family. I really feel over whelmed with good fortune. I love reading about other crafter/artist's lives thru their blogs and I have to say...along with Flickr they are my greatest sources of inspiration...well minus my family of course. It is just so wonderful to see that we all have a love for life, a need to create and a need to share our creations. It's even more fascinating to learn that what really inspires most of us to create is the desire to connect. The ability to connect to others in our lives is at times astounding. It has such a huge and lasting impact on the people that we are. I love seeing little windows into other crafters/artists lives and learning that as amazing as they and their work are they are first and foremost human beings. We all are and we all have our strong and weak points and I have to say that completely grounds me and makes me feel more connected than I have ever felt before. Sharing our pets, friends, families and children is also an incredible force. It brings us all together no matter what our backgrounds or financial status is. It reminds us that it isn't what we don't have that matters it's what we do have and how we have achieved it... and continuing to expand it and maintain it, is what really tells the world who we truly are. I know I am 23 weeks pregnant and I always get mushy around the Holidays but I feel consumed with appreciation for my life...literally consumed by my appreciation for it so...I just had to share. Happy Holidays...take the time to relax, enjoy and absorb all you can. There really is a lot in each of our lives to be thankful for and I plan on remembering this feeling and returning to it when times are tough. I truly am thankful for my life and I am thankful for the ability to share my feelings...
HAPPY HOLIDAYS ...eat drink and be MERRY!!!

Santa Photo 2007!!!
For the ornaments swap....sent out...finally

The Nutcracker was super duper fun
Some cool art at the Pacific Northwest Ballet...and our cutie

We had a busy weekend. Saturday my Ma and I went X-mas shopping to celebrate my B-day and to spend some time together. We had loads of fun. Went to Old Navy, Linens something or other, Barnes and Noble, FOREVER 21 (where I got this,and three other cute tops that aren't online...my Ma got me two for X-mas) Nordstrom's and a variety of other Mall shops. It was crazy busy but we braved the crowds and even ate lunch at the mall which I rarely ever do. We went to Panera...it wasn't half bad and not too expensive. It was really nice spending time with my Ma. We don't do it as much as we used to. Memphis just adores her Mema so I don't get much of her time plus she does babysit for us and it's really wonderful. Jason and I also don't get out together as much as we used to. We have become homebodies...well he kinda always was but not me. I guess being pregnant doesn't help motivate me very much though. I am kinda spent by evening time these days. This week I am working on a small shop update, finishing up all my X-mas stuff, going to a Roller skate party this Friday with Memphis's class and sending out our Holiday Cards. They always turn into New Year's cards for me. We got our Santa photos back...and I love them. Memphis wore a gorgeous blouse from Le Bouton...can't wait to get my hands on some more of Lisa's gorgeous creations!!! Santa just loved her to pieces and the photo shows it. She felt super special that Santa was so nice and excited to see her. It was a memory I will have with me forever. I also have a big fabric gift to share...I was sent some fabric recently that is just amazing. I will share it soooooon...
I also want to send a huge congratulations to Lisa...she is taking a huge step in her life and today is a special day for her.....you are awesome and you deserve happiness and success and I really am very very proud of you!!!!!
Happy Happy everyone...

I love these very much but have never tried them on....

These are from Dansko and they look super cool on but I would have to get them from the web...and not Zappos....everyone in town is out of size 36 including Zappos....:(

These are on order for me at a local shop but I am not obligated to buy them. You see I wear a size 5 1/2 so it's hard for me to find shoes....

Finishing up a whsl order that is LATE...trying to get to some more Octopus and more things for my shop. Still have stuff at www.Supermaggie.com and www.Grumbletoy.com and my order for www.shoporangebutton should be up in her shop tomorrow or shortly there after. My Etsy shop actually has some stuff in it for once and I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to those of you that have recently made orders!!!!
