Went to Barnes and Nobles yesterday to get something for Hayden's book exchange at school. What did I walk out with? A Sketchbook! Last night I got super bored and decided to decorate it. If you have been a follower of mine for awhile you know I have a HUGE HUGE HUGE obsession with buttons. So I had to put tons on the front! I used bright, colorful ones. It makes me happy just looking at it, that was the effect I was going for :) I left a little bit of room in case I find any more colors to add. It only took about 10 minutes to add the buttons to the front, I may be adding mroe to the spine. I'm using it not only as a Sketchbook, but as an inspirational journal as well. No need to limit myself right? Here are some pictures even though I think it looks a lot better in person.
I also got LOTS of wrapping done today. There are still more downstairs, but my back was killing me from hunching over. I tried to give my hubby lessons in wrapping (started with a book) and it was definetly not an easy task. I had made up words for different techniques that I understood but he just wasn't getting it. Like "No honey, you have to PRESENT it" and he was like "HUH, this IS a present"!! I called a technique "present". It baffles how me how he can rewire a pylon (some military thing I have no clue about) but can't wrap a book..... Must be a woman thing. Here's a pic of our prezzies so far, thanks Mom for the huge box of gifts by the way <3
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day for us. Santa pics, decorating a gingerbread house, wrapping more prezzies, Darbyland for the kids, and then movie night!!
IN 2 DAYS I WILL BE PICKING THE WINNERS OF THE GIVEAWAY!!!! So, if you haven't entered, do so before it's too late!
So, what are your plans for this weekend?
