Sweet Relaxation

What a wonderful long weekend, at least for Jacob and I. Poor Dave had to work crazy retail hours all but Thursday. The good news is that all you crazy people that got up to shop on Friday put us a few dollars closer to our new kitchen. Ka-ching! Thank you :D

I spent most of Friday and Saturday making our Christmas cards, shopping with my friend Maggie, and hanging out with Jacob. She is really such a bad influence, as I had planned to stay home the entire weekend. I'll give a little sneak peek here, but I don't want to spoil the surprise completely for those that get one in the mail. The stamp is Inkadinkado... purchased at A.C. Moore on Friday.


Maggie and I both bought Papo figurines for the boys stockings. They are on sale at A.C. Moore for just $3.00 - quite a deal! You can see almost the entire line here. This picture shows two of the four I got Jacob.

Oh, and check out my new banner. I couldn't wait for December to get in the holiday spirit. I used some photoshop snowflake brushes. Fonts are Cursed Mustache and Two Peas DW Let it Snow. The background is just pinkish with the crosshatch effect and then I played with the contrast.
