the rear view. we sent these photos to aunty theresa today with the tag "he's got your hair." LOL was her response. actually we often talk about how proud we are that he got his grandma's hair. i don't foresee his papi's male patterned baldness in his future.
i've begun dabbling in art journaling. or maybe it's more like sketchbooking. i say this because most of the art journal images i find aren't quite what i'm feeling. i plugged in sketch on pinterest and got scrapbook sketches. definitely not what i am ever feeling. but whilst perusing flickr i discovered that sketchbook is a good tag for me. lots of good stuff. whatever it's called, hope to share my first couple pages soon.
a couple gifties i threw together monday for the local jbs girls. i was kinda tickled by how cute they turned out. many thanks to gluestickgirl for the great idea and all the great scraps. she is my superhero.
this is the gman watching tv with his new pet. he has been harrassing me for a venus flytrap for three days now. i really don't know where he gets these ideas. i take that back. i do know. it is clearly genetics and i am to blame for this one.
as january is approaching i'm in a big time organizing/planning mood. i spent a half hour torturing g by trying to find the perfect daily planner at staples. i couldn't find what i didn't know i was looking for. somehow this idea materialized in my mind. it's a regular calendar for the base. then the pages cut out of a smaller calendar and washi taped to each month along with a spare piece of 6x6 paper. also found these way cool list making post-it notes. i'm kind in love with them.
now i have the perfect doris planner. the large calendar will be for my jbs/scrappy stuff. the small calendar is for cub scouts (i'm the committee chair now don't ya know), school, and personal stuff. the papers are for brainstorming and notetaking. and then the lists. love me some lists. and now i can stick them all over the place and cover them up with more lists when they're done. or even move them to the next month if they're not done. not that that ever happens. but could my little organizational endeavor be any more perfect? i think not.
but the journal your christmas. hmmm. it's getting awfully close to being retired till next year. yep. i think this is totally ok too as it's not a december daily this year. the pics are all from random christmases so it won't be any big deal if it's done over two christmases. whew. glad i've convinced myself it's ok. you know. it's just that january thing. i want to tie up lots of loose ends and start 2012 fresh. i think it's gonna be a great year! :)
