It's about getting...

No it isn't really about getting this holiday it is about giving and I have some fun projects I have been whittling away on for the last couple of months ~this year the family is doing mostly homemade Christmas which has turned out to be a bigger challenge then just shopping at amazon ~go figure.
So what ever I get this year will most likely be something all wrapped up in lovie homemadeness ~but Santa can't make something homemade, that's just crazy and well mom doesn't have time to make something homemade for everyone so I thougth I would just throw a couple of helpful hints out here on the internet for Santa & my Mom to find...

Amy Butler has this really cute bag pattern that I could make ~

My pretty knife block needs the empty holes filled up and I think this might really help ~
Oh and because I have had oh so much fun the last couple of years sewing from her pattern book I think it is about high time I make the treck to Conneticut and hang out with Denyse Schmidt ~Mom you could come too~

For reasons I can't explain...

Alright the holidays are upon us and I am busy working on projects and making plans and don't tell my dad but I have been listening to Christmas something strictly forbidden before Thanksgiving in our house.
So do you want to know what one my favorite Christmas songs is ~and this is really embarrassing but there is something about the holidays that just make us do odd things like love this song...

3am...

This photo was snapped for me by some stranger at the movie theater at ~3am as Keera and I were headed out of the theater ~I wanted a photo to commemorate the moment, wait no I didn't I took it for my friend Money who dared me to wear the pin she gave me. She said if you go to see the movie at 12:30am on opening night you have to wear this ~and well because how much lame can you get than going to a movie at 12:30am ~so I wore it. You know what? I have never been so popular in my entire life ~I almost gave the pin to the girl in the bathroom that was almost in tears she was gushing over how much she liked it and wanted it and thought I had the best friend in the whole world that would give me such a gift and really wanted to know where it was from ~I didn't know because it was gift.
Any ways the movie was fun and Keera was a trooper for coming along with me ~go see it enjoy it's fun. ~and if you feel like talking about every detail of the movie from the opening with the dear to the last look down the staircase call me ~I can talk about a two hour movie for week straight and not have to repeat myself.
