For those of you…

drooling over the new MacAir and if your not why not? Ok, so maybe it’s a little on the spendy side. Considering the cost of my last LO, I’m not really one to talk. Until we all win the powerball so we can buy this great machine, here’s a little video to make you smile.

The most expensive scrapbook page ever…


Looks simple enough right…would you believe that it’s true total is $171.00. Crazy! So how did something so simple become so costly? I love the font used in ‘our’ and ‘ladybug’. Usually I wait for alphas to get a little old and people of tired and put them up for sale on eBay and pick them up for cheap. But for this one, I just couldn’t wait. My original plan was to cut it at the store, but then the Revolution (great table top tool) went on sale and I just couldn’t resist. I bought it too. So much for being better at saving money in the new year.

What Kind of World Do You Want…

Have you heard this song by Five for Fighting? It touched me the first time I heard it and made me stop and think…then I was sent this link by Tara and immediately thought I needed to share this with everyone.

http://www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com/videos/view/id/408214 Sorry, I can’t embed the video like I usually do, but I promise it’s worth the extra click. Not only will you hear this song you’ll also see powerful images and words regarding autism and the need for early intervention.

Plus… whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com will pay $1.00 per view of the designated charity‚Äôs videos – how cool is that.

A few new pics…


Sienna grows so much each week…here are a few from last weekend. I was talking to my friend Mary Kay tonight and she mentioned that I don’t talk about my brothers and sisters very often, although I do talk about there cute kiddos. So for the record…here are a couple of pics of my brother John (for those of you keeping track of my crazy family, he is married to Lisa and they have the adorable 10 month old Connor)


And here’s my younger sister Julie (married to Brian, mom to Ben and Grant)

Emptiness…


It’s gone, I finally took down my tree on Tuesday night. It’s an easy process physically, but I still hate the void it leaves in my living room. My desperate need for curtains and better lights is evident without the tree. I was so disappointed to find that I didn’t take a full picture only this close up as I was trying to learn more about my camera.

On a happier note, I’m super excited because…

The Daily Show is Back!

I was starting to resort to watching actual news channels — desperate times call for desperate meaures, right? Thankfully Jon and the crew have rescued me from Lou and Wolf, hopefully no long term damage has been done.

Finally a project post…

but not the kind most of you are expecting. No new LOs or paper crafts. Instead one of the projects I’m most proud of completing, a hand knit dress for Sienna. It’s still to big for her to wear, a couple more months and it will be perfect. Here’s a quick snapshot in the meantime.


I love the process of knitting, …how each stitch connects with the other and how a project comes together with each row. It never ceases to amaze me the that a few different stitches combine to create unique patterns. This project was a big step for me, for the past couple of years I’ve stuck with fairly basic projects, scarves, hats and a few purses. Now I have the confidence to try even bigger projects, maybe a sweater for Sienna’s 1st birthday — since I’m not a speedy knitter, I should probably get started now.

A little video fun

It seems like everywhere I go I hear about Wii and how fabulously fun it is. Perhaps someday I’ll discover for myself and maybe by then there will be Tetris for the Wii.
In the meantime, I’ll have to think about this video…

Is it wrong that I kept waiting for them to score the big points by lining up for rows?

Clearly I haven’t figured out the banner problems yet, but am trying out the pink template.
