thanks for the happy birthdays! my mom is visiting this week, and we ordered carryout for dinner at home with the kids. our food wasn't ready when my husband went to pick it up, and was some problem with how it was put into the computer, so they didn' charge us. my mom also made me brownies, my favorite, instead of cake. it's nice to have your mom take care of you some times. i had already used birthday money to buy a new camera, so my husband got me a new photo albumn to go with it, along with some fun treats from the kids.

i added my pinterest to my list. i'm not sure how to make a direct link, but it's pinterest.com/jenleahlynn

I'm waiting until I finish a personal swap before I make a claim. This puts pressure on myself to get it done! Yet I procrastinate and read through everybody's lists and mentally make some claims.. oh well haha!

december is moving right by. my birthday always gets overlooked a bit with christmas. but since i was recovering from surgery, everyone was extra sweet to me. my mom helped the kids shop for presents, and my husband bought me a photo album to go with the new camera i bought with birthday money from the grandparents.

i'm feeling better, and the upside is that i'm off of work until after christmas, and darn no lifting so i can't do laundry! my list of crafty christmas presents keeps getting longer, so i need to figure out exactly how much i can get done...

Sorry I've been so quiet everyone. This is final exam week and my brain is in GRADE! mode. I start getting my sanity back in small doses tomorrow as I finish up for the semester.

I'm planning on making some claims but it will be this weekend before I can get to it. Smiley

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I received my package from texscrapper two days before Christmas and I apologize to her for taking too long to post pictures. (We hosted Christmas at my house this year and I am still recovering!)

She made me a beautiful new tote bag!


I love the cowgirl pin-up theme! (my husband is a displaced Texan and says it reminds him of home!)


A close up of this awesome fabric! texscrapper's sewing skills are amazing!

Thank you texscrapper! I love it!

Happy belated birthdays, all.  I got my package!  And I was spoiled beyond belief.  First off, sloth003, can I say that I would kill to be able to dig around in your fabric stash? Tongue

So, this is the first thing I saw:

I will definitely be using it as a project bag!  As a matter of fact, I already am.  The fabric is perfect -- check out the lining:


Inside that was a smaller bag:

Which I think I'll use as a notions bag.  It's the perfect size.

Next: a seaglass necklace!  I actually squealed out loud when I saw it.  She collected it from Lake Huron -- it's perfect for me, since I have a huge seaglass collection from the shores of Lake Ontario Smiley


And more!  Amazing place mats:




Each one is different.  I tried making placemats a while ago and they came out all bunched up, so these are great.

And flower pins:

I think the one on the right is my fave.  My hair is too short for pins, so I'm planning on using them as bookmarks.

There was also a mint chocolate thing, but my dad devoured it before I could get a picture Smiley

Thank you so much sloth003!  You went over and above with this and I love everything.  You rock!
