it is sooo very hard for me to keep my money in my pocket when it comes to the holidays and spending on myself...i know, shame on me...but i end up looking at such wonderful, handmade gifties out there & inevitably i want them allllllll forrrrrr meeeeeee...oh santa, i'm sorry i'm such a greedy girl!
but i did purchase this for my mother in law (but in better colors, she already took the pic down of the one i got her) & also got her these lovely cards from the same etsy seller. she loves asian-ey type things so i think these will suit her well. (i only ended up buying one set of bird cards for me, honest, just one set!)
now, i also did a little shopping for my dear momma. i got her a very cool owl hoodie from fluffy co that she was admiring when she came to rescue her sick ole daughter. (okay, okay, i only bought ONE cuff for me while i was fluffy co shopping - pinky swear!)
i am coveting: this new print of camilla's & i was lucky enough to get one of mav's now sold out calendars (ah-hem, yep, calendar is for me) & her beautiful 'twinkle' card for the mister's special christmas card (that will hold a *very* special giftie inside...secret's not out yet; when it is, you'll know too!) well okay, i'll give you one hint, i bought two of the melamine plates from lena corwin to give him as clues, but i can't tell you yet, because what if he is a sneaky pete and looks here too?! so i'll just let you guess which 2 i bought us (HIM, i mean him...i wasn't thinking about me at all & how cute they would look eating a yummy veggie sandwich off of...scout's honor!!)
i'll show more as i cross people (me-hee hee) off my list - i'm making a bunch of sprout studio gifties for friends & families too - & if you want any sprout studio lovelies for the amazing peeps on your little (big?!) list ya better hop to it; after december 13th i'm not shipping out any more orders until after the new year - i'll be chugging back across the country in little ms. vw bus holding my dear sir finally coming home to stay (hip hip hooray!) & lots of other crap we've had in storage at our friends, families & acquaintances homes for near onto 5 years now...and *shocker* they want their space back now. greedy people wanting their garages & attics back...poop!
okay, enough rambling for me, off to ride the crazy bus home & work on stuff for the show on saturday!
