Updates and pictures

Normally I'm working right now, but I had some cancellations, so I ran home for lunch and some computer catch up time. It's been a busy week and will continue to look busy for several more days. Tonight we're having Shawn's birthday dinner at my parent's (got rescheduled from Sunday night), tomorrow night I start community band again (still not sure I have the time for this anymore, but we'll see) Saturday night is help Michelle get her stuff organized night and Sunday I have a birthday party to attend. Oh and there's work and the usual commitments....

What I really want to do is create stuff. I've been in the mood to play in the scrap space and do some knitting, but time has not allowed for much. I've fallen of the Layout A Day wagon, but I did do these quick and easy pages this weekend and managed to use up much of my Studio Calico December kit...the January kit, however, is still calling my name....

Since I know a very belated Christmas gift has now arrived safely (well, somewhat safely...opened, but safe) at it's final destination in Oregon, I can know post my new knitty love...making bags. Here's the one I sent to Ms. Nicole (aka International Blog Stalker Extraordinaire):

and here's the one I decided to keep for myself:

I'll be making more of these mom has already requested it's kind of fun to play with color combinations. Right now I'm working on a scarf with a cool pattern and a blanket. I seem to suffer from knitting ADD though and have to be working on multiple things at the same time....kind of how my scrapping brain seems to work...I've got 2 in progress minis and a calendar/journal project now too....ah, the creative brain...

Check out the new button on my sidebar that links to Andrea's Etsy store. She has some super cute aprons for sale and I know she is feverishly working on more. I've seen her fabric samples and they look fabulous, once I decided what I want, I will be getting one of these babies for my very own.

Hey you! Wonderful LO's. I love them! And I recognize the papers too... :) Very cool.

Nicole's bag turned out super cute - glad you were finally able to post it.

I'm going to start a 12x12 LO competition with you... ;)

Wow Erin, those bags are SO fun!! Love the shape and the stripeys!!
