December update

Not surprisingly, I have been rather busy with the holidays, working on things for my Etsy store and some unfortunate family events. Not that there are many following my blog in the first place, but, I still think it's a good idea to regularly make entries. Here are a few things I've been working on and some thoughts about them:

This is a close-up of my new Slumber Buddy design which my 12 year old son has named "Lenny". He's two-toned... green on the front and purple on the back. I really like him, but, can't decide if I like the fact that his antenna are floppy. The kids seem to like them just fine, so I have him listed as such. You can check him out at my Etsy store.

The following are my chunky pages from the cupcake swap over at mail art world. Roc was the hostess with the most-ess for this swap, which seemed to be plagued with bad juju as one of the participant's pages (barefootchef) were lost in a postal black hole. BFC ended up recreating all eight of her pages and mailing them out individually to each person. What a trooper!! Many thanks Cathy. You really came through. I got my returns last week and let me tell you, they are spectacular. All I need to do now is get a binder ring and put my book together. I'm excited because I have a couple of other books that are started, but, none that are complete like this one. The recipes all sound yumalicious too. Mine was Black Bottom Cupcakes. I tried them and YES, they are really good. There isn't any icing on 'em, which suits me just fine as I don't care for it anyway. Just chocolate and cream cheese. What's not to love?

That's it for today. Happy trails and good luck with all your holiday preparations. God knows I'll need a little help to get everything done. ♥
