I've been a bit of a lazy sod these last few days. I did manage to start the laundry but didn't even finish one load (how shameful!) but of course I could go shopping . . . I bought THIS by the way. Does that shock you? I mean after all, I try to be thrifty in most ways yet I'll drop $180 on a tote bag. To make you (and me) feel better, the bag retails for $400, Coach is my very favorite AND their bags last forever. Oh and I got my tax return back. :) See . . . I feel better all ready. I also bought a new dining room table and chairs but we did have loads of wedding gift certificates to put towards that so I didn't feel super guilty. Plus we needed a new table . . .
Where was I?? Oh yes, my laziness. I'm hoping to break this cycle. I managed to half clean my craft room and that was fairly motivating. Once we get our new table I can put the current dining room table in the craft room (which is a small farmhouse style kitchen table) and start working on my dollhouse. Sigh . . . I can't wait!
On to more interesting things . . . a wonderful gift from the ever sweet Lucy:
What a wonderful box this is! Want to see what's inside?
Marvelous! How much do I love pink kitchen utensils? And do see those hand made recipe cards and dividers? They are all HAND WRITTEN:
I can't tell you how touched I am that she would take all that time to put together such a fabulous wedding gift just for me. Last night I whipped up her "To Die For Potroast" and let me tell you, it is to die for. Luis loved it which is good since he poo-pooed the chicken I made on Sunday. Hmphf. Anyway . . . maybe if you ask Lucy nicely she'll post that fabulous (and super duper easy) pot roast recipe. :)
I actually sent Lucy a gift as well. It was a thank you for all of her organizational help with the Pink and Brown Swap. I made her these mitts:
I was very happy with the way they turned out. This is my second pair of custom mittins. Remember the orange ones I made for Sara?
They are fun to make and I've been enjoying designing them for individuals. I'm planning to have my mittens as one of my crafty venture items for Goodness. Have I told you about Goodness? Well it's just a hatchling at the moment so I'll save that diatribe for another day. :)
