Finally getting back into the swing of things! Got the Xmas decorations down today and organized toys. Now its on to my studio . . .!

Speaking of which, here is the Welcome Sign I just ordered for the door. I think the silver glitter is here to stay for me (even after Christmas). I even bought conversation heart ornaments at Marshalls for my Tinsel Tree (just so I could keep it around a little longer)!

Here are a couple of "photo" hints for the February Kits. These old MOP will be a part of the Project Kit:

And, this "sweet" stuff (don't worry, its not sugar) is a part of the Papercrafting Kit:

And. . . the background gives you a little hint as to the color scheme as well!

I am off to cook dinner for the little ones. As for me, I am having left-over Baked Potato soup from Panera Bread. It is my new tradition to buy a quart of it on Monday's to keep me well fed through the week. Just in case you wanted to know, they only serve it on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays! In fact, here's a funny story:

The Monday before Christmas I sent my husband there on the way home from work (we just got a brand new one near our house) to pick me up a bowl. He called me on his cell phone when he got there to tell me that Baked Potato was not listed on the menu for the day. I quickly told him that he needed to inform the "new" employees of what day it was (shouldn't they know these things, geeesh). I listened as they told him that they had run out and had taken it off of the menu, but. . . they were expecting a truck any minute. Even though I whined, he wouldn't wait around (the nerve of him), so Broccoli and Cheese it was (which, by the way, is good, but not as good as the Baked Potato)!

Happy Wednesday!!

Pin It!

Oh that sign is so "you!" Perfect for your studio door. Perfect!!!

I will have to try the baked potato soup. We have a Panera about a mile from my house. So far, I've only loved the desserts. LOL

Hey, I saw something I bet you'd like at the dollar spot at Target... a glittery little ditty like that sign for Val. day... I think it said "Love"? Ok... you are officially enabled to check it out. LOL
Oh, Jenni are you going to be at the CK convention in Nashville this year also?

Where did you find that Welcome sign? It's wonderful!


Jeanette said...

The welcome sign is perfect.

And I'm a big fan of Panera Bread too. My favorite is their chicken noodle soup.

Jen Otto said...

YES! I love that soup, especially when served in that yummy bread bowl! Didn't know you could buy it by the quart. I might be in trouble:o)

Don't know if you remember me, but we met when you came to MD for the grand opening of Recollections. I worked there & TA'd for you when you taught a class @ the Timonium store:o)We talked boys & potty training!

PS Love the sign. I'm into all things glittery these days!
