About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Flurries of Fun

Things are hopping here at our house! The countdown to Christmas has begun, as well as birthday parties, end of the semester co-op classes, Nutcracker rehearsals, karate testing and on and on.... Are you as tired as I am??

This week we are discussing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Princess Academy in my Book Club classes. The beginning of snow globes are scattered around my kitchen...

Katie has decided to have a Half Slumber Party for her birthday. We are going to do all the fun things that slumber parties are famous for- games, crafts, food and a movie- and then everyone gets to go home and be cozy in their own beds.:) The colors will be hot pink and black- like the American Girl Place! There will be a focus on Tinkerbell, too- Katie's favorite.:)

Katie and I had such fun making the invitations! Choosing fabulous paper, punching out shapes and coordinating sparkly brads- LOVE it!

I am hoping to put some new pretties in my shop, but with the flurry of activities I am not sure when....

I am currently taking special orders and completing them as quickly as I can- for those smart early shoppers.:)

Wow girl, just reading all you're doing on your blog makes me tired!!!! I'm with you though. I found out they want to give me LOTS of seasonal hours at See's so I'm running around like crazy! I got Timmy and Ronnie into the dentist today, I go to the dentist myself tomorrow. I got my hair cut a lot shorter today too. I'm slowly getting it cut to be your length (I'm not there yet)
I'm getting ready to sew now.
I start work Saturday night so my holiday season is going to be somewhat rushed! Egad.
Love the snowglobes, the bracelets, THE INVITATIONS! Everything looks lovely as always!

Love,
Me~♥

Good luck with the b'day preparations, I know it will be FAB!

Rachel said...

Yup I'm already tired and we haven't even hit Thanksgiving yet! ;) Although, I'm happy to say I have most of my Christmas shopping done already. I've decided I want a stress free Holiday, not shopping with the masses this year.

Darlene said...

It sounds like you are quite the busy lady right now (well always!!). The invitations look so cute. Of course your bracelets are beautiful!

Are you making snow globes? Have you shared how you make them before on your blog? If not could you share because Lexi will have another Mini Society right before Christmas and that might be a cute thing to make and sell along with the Christmas magnets we will make.

Ruth said...

Wow~you are a busy lady!! I love those flowers for the invitations. The book club sounds like so much fun. The snow globes will be so cute.

Susan said...

I love snow globes. You know Christmas will be here soon.
Love the colors of your braclets, very creative.

Angie said...

I love the close up pictures..so much color! It makes me happy looking at all of your work!

Both of my kids' birthdays are weeks apart pretty soon..so I understand the birthday panic! We made the snowglobes for girl scouts using the baby food jars. Just a tip, our items ended up floating around in the globe after attaching them with hot glue..so I switched it up and used Liquid Nails. That worked perfectly. What a great book to be working on, too. It makes me want to re-read it again! I think I might!

Jerelene said...

Hi Lori! I e-mailed you :)
I love, love all your bracelets..you are so talented and they are beautiful...just like you!
The half-slumber party sounds like a winner to me...
I would love to know how to make the snow globes...that would be so fun to do with Sam!
I love the black and pink flowers..pretty!!
Please..Please share with us how to do the snowglobes :)
Love You!! Jerelene

You are so incredibly creative! It's mind boggling to me! If 52 isn't too old, would you consider adopting me?

Amy said...

Definitely tired! Yes, everyone here is saying, "When are we getting our Christmas tree?" Can't wait to see the snow globes! So cute so far. And the invites......!!!

Kimberly said...

Hi Lori
I think the Half Slumber Party is a fantasic idea. I am sure Katie is so excited about it. The invitations are looking so pretty. Tinkerbell is a lovely theme too. You are going to have so much fun, I just know it. Love the snowglobes too, what a super idea.

Okay, where is my little sister? I haven't heard from you by E mail, facebook or blogging in a day or two... I'm getting "a little" concerned!

Did you see that I won the 3 recipe books from Gooseberry patch's blog? They put me on their blog, twitter and Facebook! I've had a lot of traffic today on my blog!

I miss YOU!
