Oy, what a weekend.
We agreed on a theme for Darwin's birthday, with lots of help from him...
Rockets! Yeah! (Ooooh, and be very impressed with my mad photo-editing-in-paint skills.)
Those freakin' things took quite a while. The rockets were hand-cut from scrapbooking paper made by Basic Grey. The invites were printed on the laser printer and mounted onto dark blue cardstock.
I used a new tape runner made by scotch (because it was half the price of Dotto, which is what I normally use -- and I use the removable and needed permanent for these), and I totally Was Not Happy with the results of the scotch. It was very gummy and not precise, so when I use it all the package will go in the trash and I'll get another Dotto -- one for permanent adhesive and one for removable adhesive.
Yes, I know, I'm crazy. I could have just purchased prepackaged party supplies, but I'm insane.
My best friend, who now lives over 700 miles away from me, came to town for part of the weekend. Unfortunately, her baby was not feeling so well so our visit was cut short.
But he's still as cute as a button, doncha think?
I got my package shipped off for the trim swap this morning, and I even have a teaser...
My package was shipped off to someone in England, and I'm quite nervous. I hope the person I got likes what I got her (the swap is a round robin, and full of surprises!). Hopefully, she'll receive her package in the next week and I'll post then.
So, I have a cockamaney idea to make something with these...
Can you guess what I'm going to make? (Ha! If I ever get a chance to make it, that is!)
Aaron left this morning for a big ole business trip. He is gone at least until June 9th (June 9th, I am so totally screwed). As an added bonus, both boys are running fevers, Griffin pee'd on the couch while taking a surprise nap and Darwin has explosive diarrhea.
Really, you should be Quite Jealous.
