Birthday Calendar

I was lucky enough to get in on the red envelope Mailorder club from Angry Chicken. The first envelope came and I did a little happy dance around my living room. Amy is so very clever and I just couldn't wait to see what sorts of goodies she had sent. She did not disappoint!

The first project was a perpetual birthday calendar. It is perfect for me because I really AM trying to be better about remembering these things. I cut, I colored and I assembled. Now I can't wait for the next issue!

Also included with the first issue was a recipe for Apple Crisp. We decided to make it last weekend. It was wonderful! (I left out the nuts because of a nut allergy in the house) I this is going to be our "go to" recipe for apple crisp. Perhaps we'll have to get some more apples for another one this weekend. (and the leftovers are great with a cup of tea for breakfast!) mmm....

I had no idea!

Why didn't any one tell me what I was missing out on?? Chris and I aren't really reality TV viewers. No Survivor, no American Idol and up until now, no Project Runway for us.

However, that all changed this weekend. I sat down late in the afternoon on Saturday for a little vegging in front of the tube. Project Runway was on and I was too tired to look for anything else. Well, the next thing I know, I am HOOKED! I've been sitting at my sewing machine ever since - intently watching as the drama unfolds. (and sewing madly during the commercials!)

I'd write more but I really must go. I'm watching the Barbie episode and I need to see who is in and who is out! Thanks to all the rebroadcasts that Bravo is doing, by the time the finale airs I'll be all caught up!

Friday, March 3


My brain is turning to mush! I'm just not getting a good night's sleep lately and it is really catching up with me.

I can't think straight, I'm forgetting things, and I'm making stupid mistakes. It's been a trying week. Yesterday I decided to work on a seemingly simple project, however, by the time I was done I was left holding a small disaster. The mistakes that I made were just plain silly. ...sigh...

Today won't be any better, either.

Friday's are my busiest (and most exhausting) day of the week. I'm going in to this one with only 3 hours of sleep. Luckily we have a delayed start to school this morning so I can take a little more time getting ready for the day. I don't think there will be any crafting today though.
