Today is a big day. My little bro is 21. 21. 21. 21. When I turned 21 I broke, lost, found and fixed my camera all in the same day. I also skipped every class in order to check email and blog. Robbie is much cooler than me and will probably do none of those things. (Ro, the photo came from your facebook - it was the best one to be found.) (Internet, yes he is my real brother - we just do not look alike.)
Aside from celebrating (from afar) that historic event, I have suitcases to unpack, errands to run, floors to vacuum, and groceries to buy (I am fairly certain I have been enjoying bad milk on my cereal the past two mornings.)
I completed my first December Daily last night. I realized that most December days I will not be doing something holiday related. So I will make it a short Christmas journal of sorts those days. Like yesterday, I felt it appropriate to announce I know exactly what HANDMADE gift everyone on my list is getting. And also that I am already very tired of the holiday CD at Paper Source. I am going to have to make one. Complete with Frank Sinatra.
Also, I hade a few questions about how to knit. I learned from my Mom when I was eight. I thought about making a video of how to - but this one already exists. And there is less talking in this one. I am sure you can find oodles more options on youtube - but these are a start. I buy all of my yarn at Michael's. I am much more a follow the color instead of buy a type of yarn person.
And, to those of you who think Paper Source should make stamps in similar shapes as their labels, I agree - maybe someday. I would love to recommend Apple Blossom Studio stamps to you as well. Perfect label like shapes. (Scroll down to "The Whole Enchilada")
Okay. Roll on. Happy Birthday ROBBIE BLAHA. You are fantastic. (I recommend water and a multi-vitamin.)
