My Kind of Town & Ew to New #6

i have a few. like Aleida, who now lives in texas and misses home like i do. and the awesome Simone...who is the main reason i am posting this (she is one of the lucky ducks who get to work there!!!)

If you live near Chicago (that's in Illinois), ha ha, you have an amazing new scrapbook store scheduled to open next week. i'm not talking about your little old lss that carries all weird stuff like mrs. grossmans...i'm talking serious paper addict shopping experience.

Go here to get the scoop:


and i am completely jealous. who knows, maybe they'll have an online store soon ;)

about now onto owen's bum...yes, i was trying to clean yesterday and little mr. stinky pants and his big brother really weren't helping at all. (it's hard to mop when a one year old is stepping and slipping all over what you've just mopped, especially with his dirty ol' feet...hence the reason we should mop in the first place).

anyway, i went to go get something just after i had readied the mop and when i came back michael was standing there pointing, saying, "EWWWW!" owen had taken off his diaper (he likes to do that now--thinks it's terribly funny) which had poo in it, picked up the mop and started pushing the mop back and forth (he was actually doing a very good job). so, of course i got pics but didn't want to post them. thought that would be weird. but they are too funny.

just a little ew to new for you, before i head out on my 'long weekend scrapbooking at the lake' with my bestest friend here aimee. should be fun!

Embroidery Stitching Hoop ($.99 at the HL)

add some spray paint (i know, spray paint again...there's still some left in the can so i'll be painting something else i'm sure)...

a little fabric to cover the full circle (leave enough to fold over to back when you add the top ring. cut your paper so as to cover only half of the circle (to make a pocket) , again leaving enough to fold over to back (can be difficult with cardstock papers but plain non-cardstock will probably tear). add embellies, hang and fill up the pockets!

see you on Sunday!!!

Hello, like that is super freaking cool. I'm sure a lot will be lifting that idea. That is way too cute. Okay, I would have flipped over the diaper thing and then looked back and laughed. Crazy kids we have huh?

And you are so right, I so miss home.
