Getting post rules!

I tell you, this surprise package thing is just the best. If I could give myself amnesia, set up a bunch of mailings for myself throughout the year, then un-amnesia myself, I so would. This is just the bestest!

So, we got home from our "late Easter" celebration at my parents'. (Yep, the "Mom, we're going to be driving home from Milwaukee on Easter, sorry we won't be making it this year" conversation somehow mutated into Easter being postponed a week in obnoxious, definitely un-savior-ish style...complete with egg hunt, more chocolate than is good for anyone (not to mention my 14 month old), leg of lamb and for some reason brand spankin' new Razor scooters of the Barbie and Hot Wheels variety. I swear, my mom has lost her wits. She needs some sort of grandmother 10 step program...) Anyway, frazzled would be a good description of the condition of my brain...or maybe I mean scrambled...

Anyway, there in the mailbox is the tiniest, cutest mailer envelop I have ever seen, absolutely covered in Canadian customs forms. And inside? The cutest retro-80s-ish stitch markers made by Graphic Design Chick. SQUEEEEEEEEE! Thank you Secret Pal 10 Pal! I love them!


And what have I been working on? Well, something SECRET to be revealed at a later date. TO be a late birthday present truth told. So zip yer lips.

But there has also been this:

Yep, am rippling again, and it's gooooooooooooood. (and yes, that is the baby's easter rabbit adroning the Donna Kooler's. sans head...oops.)

(still working on the vacation post...those goodies to come!)

Dawn,

I tried emailing you to see if it's too late to join the ripple along but the address doesn't work. Can you let me know if I can join....I'd love to.
