Happy Day!

This camera strap is on it's way to my little home right about NOW!!!! So thrilled that I finally got the chance to order one of these in Emily's Etsy shop. Seems as though whenever I would go to her site to order one, the ones that I wanted were already snatched up (they go so fast!). Checked her site this morning and this was just sitting there waiting for me! Yay! Also feels good to support those making things handmade!

Things have been getting busy around here lately. I've started watching some little kiddos, thinking that for right now it will only be once a week or so, but we have a teeny-tiny house so it makes for one very exciting day when it does happen! The little girl is actually one of Zoey's best buds and the other is her little brother who is just a little peanut, it's been so fun to have a little guy around. Definitely adds a different element to the previously all female environment!

I am also getting ready for the final craft for MOP'S before the fall/winter semester ends in January. Really excited about this one as we will be making some necklaces using the acrylic pendants by Diane Reeves. This was the first time that I had played around with the pendants and I am thoroughly addicted! Once I try one thing with them I think of something else that I want to try! I'm actually hoping to get out today to look for some more funky beads to play around with on some of them.

Also getting ready for Christmas of course! =) My mom is actually coming to visit and to help me out with some things here. I've already got a list of things that I am hoping that she will help me out with. It goes something like this:

1. Help me bake 5 dozen cookies for MOP'S (and maybe some for us too!)
2. Watch Zoey so that E and I can go out and get our Santa shopping done (started!)
3. Help me highlight my hair (pretty sure I want to do this!)
4. Have her play with Zoey so that I can get my Christmas cards written out and some little handmade holiday gifts done
5. Spend time together, her, Zoey and I downtown. This is the weekend that they have horse drawn wagon rides downtown, roast chestnuts on the square and have singing and skating at the rink. Such a classic Christmas experience, last year it was almost magical!

Funny how no matter how old we get to be, we expect that our mothers' will still drop everything and pull through for us when we need them! Just as Zoey now looks to me for so much, the second my mom is able to visit I start making lists of the things that she can do for me. Will have to remember that even though our roles as mother daughter are set, the way they play out are not.

That's a very cool camera strap! Do you bead regulary? I'm a beader and teach jewelry making. I love it! If only we were close, we could scrap and bead together. Scrapping and beading...two very dangerously expensive hobbies!!

Have fun with your mom. She sounds great :)
