Other than knitting...

...here's what I've been doing.


The Perfect Tree Posted by Hello

It felt good to get a layout done last weekend (clicking on the title will hopefully take you to a bigger version at fotki.com). I was with Lisa, who gave me (!) the Jolee's Boutique garland for the tree. A perfect match for papers from an old CTMH kit. The scrapbook store had the Quickutz die for the title.

I wish CTMH would come up with a great journaling line stamp like Stampin' Up has (which I used here). I am so tired of coming up with a journaling box. I'm getting brave enough to stamp right on my finished layout and write away, while the images and memories are fresh.

Read on if you need a knitting fix...just thought I'd try this in two different entries, since the next one (which was actually my first today) is so dang long!

    hey denise! boy, i've missed a lot of posts and have a lot of catching up to do. i love how you have all these fond memories and things. i related so much to your lilacs comment (a sentimental favorite) and the cake recipe. some things remind you so much of certain times. it's so weird to think that when you go back to a place, it won't be the same. you think of it so often, and then you go there and no one is there that you remember, or the place has changed. don't mind me, i'm just going on a sentimental journey apparently :)

    how was your romantic evening? i hope it was simply wonderful.

    i'm sorry you didn't catch the secret pal 4 boat. you could try to email her anyway and see if there's room for one more. i joined one late last fall that was already in progress, and it worked out b/c there were other late joiners, as well as an odd number of participants.

    sorry about the person being a big weirdo about your amazon wishlist. that's kind of rude of them. i mean, i appreciate knowing what people want. don't let that steer you away from sharing with your fellow bloggers. you never know if one of us has a duplicate book of something you want, or whatever the case may be.

    i hope you have a great weekend, denise!

    Love that page you did! Your little girl is such a cutie! Your Irish Hiking scarf way down there in another entry looks fantastic! I've never tried Cotton Fleece before but have it on my "to try list". Enjoyed reading your answers to those questions below.
