I'm done!!

Yes that's right - I finished the wedding invites and they are boxed and mailed and on their way to Australia and my sister should have them early next week - phew! That's one more thing I can check off my list of a billion things to do before we leave..... now to tackle the other 999999999....

My younger DD has yet another birthday party this weekend and so I fell back to my favorite standby gift - the lunch box. I quickly made this one this afternoon

and now I can fill it with crafting bits and pieces and "check" that's another thing done. I love using the SU scrapping kits for these because it all co-ordinates and you don't have to think about matching colors or pattern or anything - which is especially good when you are a brain dead as I am at the moment. The big chipboard flower I actually covered with DP from the winter mini - the valentines stuff - and even that matches :o)
I'm at the girls school tomorrow and Friday and tomorrow night is my DD's year end pizza party for soccer so I'm not sure when I am going to clean the house ready for my mum who arrives on Saturday.... even scarier than that is the fact that we leave 2 weeks from today! I will be glad to get there but right now I am so not ready to leave. We still want to squeeze in Shrek 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean before we leave too... I hope my mum is ready to enter the whirlwind that is my life.

Deep breaths.... Quiet moment!! Breathe!. Okay you will get most everything done that you need to. No worries. Oh and I'm so with you about the Shrek 3 and Pirates!! We are too excited about that. See it's the little things in life that make us happy. The rest?? Oh well, lol!!

This is so cute! I love making altered tins and I'm also a big fan of the SS kits. I've been checking out your blog today and enjoying it. Thanks!

Cute lunch box! I'm finding that these are a hit when I give them as gifts for my kids' friends' bdays :-)

Try and relax a little--I'll be thinking of you tomorrow since we're also goint to try to see Shrek 3.

I was sent your blog address from a friend. The Little Black Dress basics class you took was one of the classes that I designed for Tina. I wanted to let you know I have all the pictures of what the book should look like when it is finished. I will be posting them on my blog before the weekend is up. I hope this helps you finish your book, and I'd like to see photos of it when you complete it.

Thanks so much,
