a list for tuesday


last year's christmas letter-ing. pretty much the same scene as this year, but with new postage stamps and a new cluster of pens. i really can't wait to tell you about the pens we landed upon. however that will have to wait as they somehow got tucked into my in-laws' car with santa's satchel of to-be-hidden presents.

here's a list for today.
+ we went to the park at noon. it was sunny, bright and wonderful. i even had my camera. we shared a mini frosty. it was brilliant. one of those days i won't soon forget. maybe the cutest was when i asked benji if he wanted anymore ice cream and he replied, i scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. and came over for a big spoonful. i love when they shock you with things they know. like conquering tall twirly slides and curved ladders. kids are awesome.

+ i'm excited to debut a design i've been working on these past two days in my little aqua workshop. my cousin abby gave me the idea and, as it sometimes happens, the project has turned into something with a mind of its own. think printable poster. think custom canvas. get excited. i hope you'll like it. i was going to wait to post about it until i have it all printed pretty and framed and then photographed in good light, but the season is coming, the goose is getting fat, so i'll be posting it sooner than later without all the bells and whistles. (hopefully you can envision its potential.)

+ a giant thank you to those of you who placed cyber monday mini diary orders. they will be shipped by this weekend. and thanks for saying nice things about our family canvas montage. it's branching out for me, but i really do love it. thanks for the affirmations or affi's as we have termed them in this house.

+ i am thinking about the new michael buble christmas cd. i'm suddenly a bit fascinated by him, ever since a little blurb about him in the people magazine i slurped up on the way home from sun valley. what about you? any new holiday faves we should know about?

+ and what about christmas work party fashions? any ideas on going fancy but not too fancy? am considering a pink sparkly cardigan. because cardigans have never led me astray. and pink is festive, is it not?

+ i have a load of laundry to fold, dinner to make and a few stocking stuffers to wrap(!). so, i'm off. hope you have a happy tuesday. i seriously can't wait for december to begin. i love these inbetween days.

Awesome post, as usual! Don't you love a good pen?! Sharpies are great, and this year I've gotten into using Le Pen.

As for Christmas music, I love the Home Alone soundtrack and the Ella Fitzgerald discs (one is gospel/choir-ish, and the other is swingin')!

Can't wait to see your project. I am sure it is going to be awesome.

And yes to Michael Buble's Christmas cd - in fact, I am listening to it while reading blogs and munching on some suger roasted macadamia nuts right now.

I am loving a very she and him Christmas album these days.

Claire said...

Yes! Get the Michael holiday CD! He has a fabulous version of "All I Want for Christmas Is You"; slow with piano and he totally belts it. So good :)

Some of our all-time favorite holiday albums include Josh Groban's "Noel," David Archuleta's "From the Heart," and Andrea Bocelli's "My Christmas." You can't go wrong with any of those three. Happy Christmas season!

Thanks :)

You're handwriting kills me e.v.e.r.y.t.i.m.e!

Laura said...

Check out the She & Him Christmas album! It's very sweet. :)

A friend was over and loves to pull up Pandora any chance she gets. She chose an amazing station: the Michael Buble Holiday Station... it's so pretty, with his music but also classics like Frank Sinatra and the like. Very soothing and definitely Christmas-mood-inspiring :)

Look up "Peter Lee Johnson" on youtube. He does incredible violin covers of popular songs! Something about the violin just feels holiday-ish.....you will fall in love. He's a college kid that doesn't charge to download his songs (look him up on facebok). He simply asks for donations. AMAZING.
