Ok, it has seriously been way too long since I’ve blogged. Sorry about that! But I’ve been a busy busy bee lately. Hunched over my sewing machine, cranking out gifts for my chubby little princesses and ordering things from all corners of the world for Christmas gifts for loved ones. Making quite a few dents in Etsy.com….I simply adore that place! CRAZY busy. Decorating the house, baking cookies, finding new music, battling a seemingly endless cold, making Christmas cards for the kiddos at school and for teachers….waiting impatiently for my snowflake cookie cutter to arrive in the mail…really wanting that box to arrive! LOL! πŸ™‚

The kiddos will be in a school play on Tuesday, so we’re gearing up for that…I’ve heard the darn songs so much, I’m sure I’ll be sing sing singin’ along during the performance. My only consolation is that all the other mums and dads will be doing it, too. πŸ™‚ Lara is going to be a sheep and Mia is going to be a cat. Can’t wait! Speaking of singing, Norah is slowly starting to get the words to “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. It comes out roughly as “tinko tinko……. how why……up up UP!” πŸ™‚ Then, of course, lots of clapping and shouting and exclamations of “YAY!!” Here she is singing it for me…

Besides that, been busy on backstage digi….many, many things going on. First of all, the December Songbird Avenue kit is up and it is PHENOMENAL!! We had the honor of working with Michelle Coleman and the kit is just scrumptious! And we’re already hard at work on January’s kit…time sure is flying! πŸ™‚

You can pick it up HERE. Remember, the kits are only available for one month! πŸ™‚ Come and help us support the Make a Wish foundation of Utah and maybe pick up a gift certificate for a buddy while you’re there! πŸ™‚ Don’t forget to keep up with all the events over at the Songbird blog. Michelle always has something fun for you! πŸ™‚ When you stop by the blog, you can see the receipt that Meredith posted from the Toys for Tots website. We managed to raise $1,814.05 last month! You guys are amazing! Thank you SO MUCH for your donations!!

Also, we were mentioned in Ali Edwards‘ latest newsletter….kinda mind-boggling and gloriously exciting at the same time. It’s SO COOL to think that we inspired her the way she inspires us. When I think of “do-gooders” Ali is pretty darn high on the list…so to have her give us a shout-out is such an honor! Thank you, Ali!

A fab new collaboration kit is up at Oscraps! Check out Jolly-O! It’s loads of fun!

I’m also working on some holiday stuff…hopefully I will have it ready in a couple of days. I know there are tons of yummy kits out there, but I think I’ll throw my hat in the ring as well! That reminds me…I’ve have simply GOT to get started on my Christmas cards…I don’t even have a photo yet! 😦 Last year’s beautiful photo was pure luck…not so sure about what’s going to happen this year. It’s a nightmare trying to get all 3 girls to smile at the same time and have their eyes open and all be looking at me. I’d probably have better luck if I told them all to pick their noses…..hmmmm….methinks I have the new holiday card theme! πŸ˜‰

Ciao, all and take care! See ya soon! πŸ™‚
