busy weekend.

it has been a busy weekend. i am trying to get some orders lined up and ready to go this week as i hate facing monday with the prospect of not having done anything. i got a great laugh today as we were filing a claim with a couple of boxes that UPS must have dropped kicked and then just proceeded to throw in a box without packing stuff and damaged over $1000 in items for us. when i looked at the form today, it said that they damaged some "tins of chipboard alphabets and a couple of squirrels". i cracked up. we didn't ship any squirrels but the dude must have heard "squirrels" when jess told them "scrolls".

but it has been a great weekend for us so far! baby noah and i went running this morning. david got some new limestone for getting the border of the landscaped area of our yard done.

we went to B&N last night and being the ambitious person i am, i bought a "how to make cool kid cakes" book so that noah will have a FABULOUS first birthday cake this year. i think that i must also watch too much ace of cakes as this will be a big task but i am up for it. i don't know if i told you all or not but as kids, deb and i had a business selling polymer and paper clay business. we would make all these pins, earring and sculptures and sell them at art shows. there was also a very cool and hip consignment store in downtown Charleston, SC that took our items and sold them for it. i can remember one month getting a $100 check and that was so cool - someone like our stuff! so now when i watch ace of cakes, i see them making sculptures much like we did as kids!

i also need to catch up on noah's monthly LOs. i am bad, i haven't done his 10th month one but here is his 9th:

soon he will have his first album that has 1 LO of each month of his life and what he was like that month! i am excited to be completing this soon!

and keep the RAK entries coming (see a couple of posts below for the challenge) - i am still filling the box and there is about $50 worth of stuff in there now to one lucky winner!

i will be back later in the week with some cool how tos teaching you all some techniques i came up with this weekend on making your own transparency stickers with our MR stamps! so watch for that!

If you want to ship some squirrels I'm sure I can have some waiting for you when you get to Detroit, they might not be fresh. Great LO of Noah.
