thank you so much for the sweet comments about pezza and her video – i always read them to her and she gets so proud of herself! she told me yesterday she does good videos because she’s “a professional you know” :P today she has been playing with her littlest pet shop and zoobles toys for over an hour! she NEVER sits and plays toys. she always has to be doing what i am doing so i am hoping this new pattern will continue! of course she has still been talking non-stop. i think if she stopped talking she might spontaneously combust……
i don’t have a post for ya today but when i am finished here i am hoping to head down to the studio for some scrapbooking. i did want to pop in and remind everyone of the Publication Calls for the next issue of Through the Craft Room Door. we have had such amazing support for the magazine and we love all of the submissions we get in. you do not need to be a subscriber to submit! we are looking for all sorts of things – not just cards and not just papercrafts!
