Sometimes You Just Have to Make a List

because my brain can't handle putting together paragraphs

1. Birth Announcements: Not the most original ever, but I think they turned out pretty cute. And it gave me an excuse to buy some Martha Stewart ribbon from Michael's.

2. Christmas Cards: Also not super exciting. Had to do something quick. Next year I hope to have time to do something a little more fun and 'me'.

3. Christmas Decorations: Just a couple of my favorite ornaments, both new from last year.

4. Not Running: Um yeah. This photo speaks for itself I think.

5. Etsy Store - I'm hoping to open an Etsy store sometime in the next couple of months. Of course, that means actually having product to put in the store. Which means making things. Hmmm...

6. At least I'll have a sweet logo. My fabulous cousin who is a fantastic artist is helping me with that, seeing as how I can't draw even a little bit. So, that'll be good.

7. Oh yeah!! And also -- this is probably the most exciting thing to happen to me all month -- I got an email from Superbuzzy, and guess what!? Their warehouse is now in Ventura!!! Sweet Mother of Mystery I'm stoked. They used to be up in Portland and I dreamed of maybe someday getting to go visit. But now they're just a quick jaunt up the road! This means no more paying for shipping AND I get to see what I'm buying before I buy it. Woot! I love you Superbuzzy, see you soon!

8. Pretty much the best ever: Ruth got me these bookplates from The Paper Princess that I've been wanting. Mine have my name on them of course, but my camera battery died so just use your imagination

9. For William: Ruth gave Will these adorable little fruit dolls. I am so in love with them. They are made by Under The Nile which means they are 100% organic cotton and part of the 13 Village Project.

I got these amazing books for Will -- How to Behave and Why, How to Speak Politely and Why and Manners Can Be Fun -- by Munro Leaf (cool name) of The Story of Ferdinand fame.

I also got him this maple teether and fish rattle from Nova Natural.

10.William & Santa: I'm not sure Will was very impressed.

So that's it from me until next year! We're leaving for Utah tomorrow and will be there until the 30th. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a white Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone!

That's a lot of stuff, woman!! I still haven't gotten my dang Christmas cards out, so you are way ahead of me. This blog post cracked me up, especially the arrow pointing to the hippo and the Sweet Mother of Mystery exclamation. Ha ha. You're going to get me in trouble with Mr. Tantamount. And I'm so glad you loved your presents enough to blog about them! Ok, last thing: I am DYING to get my own little William annoucement.

Merry Christmas!!

Stop wishing for a white Christmas!....It has been dumping since 3 and I can't drive up the hill to my house!!!

OK. Thanks for letting me know you will be gone at Christmas because that changes everything. See you at New Years. I'll have some special items for you then instead of mailing them even though I know you love mail.

You are ahead of the game! I still haven't gotten your card/presents out! It figures the busiest week of the year for us at work is the week before Christmas. How convenient!

How about I venture up to your neck of the woods so we can visit Superbuzzy together? And then you can give me a basics of sewing lesson. Start saving your change!

I think we should definitely plan another annual girls craft trip and visit Superbuzzy like we did for Knit Cafe! Except this time minus the morning sickness and pregnancy hunger. :)

I LOVE everything on this list-except the hippo (good grief!). Oh my gosh, I need a copy of that picture with Santa, it is so cute! That is one good-looking Santa, although he doesn't compare to William of course.
