I have a Million Things I need to do... So I did this instead.

I have a goal to use what I have, and if you could see my studio I have a lot, of stuff. Bags full of straws, pipe cleaners, feathers, glitter. (I really should have been a children s art teacher, but I am a little possessive of my junk. I am working on getting over that watching by Hoarders) I love that show, I am a little bit obsessed.

So using only stuff I already have I am going to make decorations for this beautiful tree that Ari picked out. (He did a good job) It is so perfect it almost looks fake. The presents under the tree are a collections of Christmas books that we re-wrap, so we open and ready one every night.

So this Silver Tinsel ribbon that I picked up before Zims went out of business (tear) and my box of book pages were my inspirations.
And this is what I made.....

Real simple and kind of cute. During the process I couldn't decide how I wanted the paper layered so I did this trial, I randomly punched out some paper and this is what I came up with. Perfect.

So that was a pretty good way to put off what I really need to do. This blogging thing really could become a handy way to avoid what I am suppose to be doing. (PTA IS FOR THE BIRDS, Just a warning).

I can't wait to make one of John.

I could think of something clever to write.

Or you could see cute pictures of my kids. Legolas and Peter Pan (both there own ideas.)

Nico is going to be Luke (Tatoinne, not jedi), and Ari is going to be Indiana Jones (he better making a small leather jacket really is hard and he better wear it), but they wanted to get dressed up for Red Butte's Garden After Dark, so this is what we did yesterday. Red Butte is always fun, and Ari in tights makes it even better. And Batman with boogers is pretty awesome too.

Guess who remembered their password?

Does it mean I will blog? I don't know, but it will be much more likely now. I was looking through this today and realized how much I really do like the people who read it.

Warning: This boy and dog are deceiving, though they might look cute, their actions defy this. They are not potty trained and like to tear things up into tiny little pieces. They do like to cuddle and are cute when they are asleep, which almost makes up for their terror through out the day.

Gocco Has Taken Over My Life.

And I think I love it.

I have been doing graduation announcements. One girl said that she likes planetary science which I really wish I were into. I need to be a little more rounded in my life (not round, mind you I already have that). These were all really fun to do. One was for a girl interning in DC hence the cherry blossoms. And then Elisa my sister, I thought the curry color was fitting. She is graduating from BYU, and then going to the UoU's Medical school in the fall. I am really proud of her and glad that she is going to be close by.

I need some Sense.

I am a Jane Austen fan, I think it is because I am a girl. Masterpiece (they have dropped the theater, it is so much more 2008 now) presented a new version of Sense and Sensibility. Which I loved, it seemed more real then the Ang Lee beautiful version. Elinor was much more believable then Emma Thompson who looked fifty, hooking up with with Hugh Grant. Instead Elinor was a perfect cross between Emily Shakespeare and her sister Amy. And MaryAnne might as well be played my Liz Davis. Anyways it was a good movie. I really just wanted everyone to see this Emily look a like.

Life, Lately

Okay, an exciting thing in my life, I got a gocco printer, LOVE IT!!!! (have you ever seen dragon tales, I wish I haven't) I did Niki Christensens graduation announcements. She said she wanted elegant, she is working in DC so I did a beautiful cherry blossom design. She then informed me she wasn't into flowers, I asked her what she was 'into' she said bikes. I am glad she was into bikes, I think I like it better the cherry blossoms anyways. I have already gotten another job to do announcements. I can't wait to do some of my own stuff.
Ari got a fish, named Coral. Coral likes to sleep upside down at the top of the tank. I am afraid to look every morning.
This is where Nico is spending a lot of time lately. What is up with three year olds, he is crazy.
Ari and John practicing, they have a pretty good song going. Ari really know his part. And will make John start over if he makes a mistake. John is starting over a lot.
