Caw!

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

So, I know that when I order something online, the most exciting part about getting it, is actually getting it. Not just having it, but getting it. Lately we've been getting a lot of packages in the mail. Christopher's birthday was last month, and Eleanore's birthday is coming up in about 11 days, so we've been getting knocks on our door by the mail man pretty regularly. Yesterday I got something from a friend back home, full of goodies for all of us. Not only did I feel super special, because I've really lost touch with this person, and because she wrapped everything individually in fluffy little tissue papers and ribbons. Yesterday while Elie Sue took her afternoon nap, I sat down to do some crafting, and packaging was my focus. Sure I get excited when I sell something, in fact yesterday I thought I sold something, and really the item had just expired, so I got excited for nothing. Anyways, I like selling things, but I really like packaging them. I put my creative thinking cap on, and the end result was this set of new mailers that I can't wait to put to use...

Really cute! That is a bummer when you think you had a sale, but was only expired.

Really, really love those envelopes!!! Could you make matching cards? Maybe you already have; I have to check your shop. Those would be perfect for me... not to rip off your style or anything.

I miss you, my sweetie rose. You ever feel like you're perpetually behind the eight ball? That's me. If I catch up on one front, I fall behind on seven others and then lose track. And my placenta brain: dreadful. I can't put two thoughts together to light a fire (or some other mixed metaphor).

Please tell me all about your pregnancy! I would love to hear about it. Your detailed ultrasound must be coming up! Are you excited? You're going to find out the gender, right? I am all tingly waiting to find out if my hunch is correct.

Sending love to you and the clan,
Di
