At long last, A Post!

Four months since my last post. Meh. But no apologies, I blog without obligation.

So, the Harry Potter Night went Super Well. I had a blast, and so did the thousand or so people who came to the store. I was very hoarse by the end of the night. I'm surprised I didn't lose my voice altogether with all the yelling I did. I got to emcee the costume contest - without a PA system. :p

The book - well. Lets just say that JK Rowling really outdid herself with the last book. It was fabulous and made me cry several times. It is one of the best books I've ever read. And I am ready to re-read it now.

Thanksgiving is in a few days, my mom and siser and her brood are coming over. My dh has to work that day. I haven't yet told him that my family will be coming over. He'll make me clean the house if I do tell him! My family loves me and my messy house. (ok, its not so bad, but he'd make me clean it anyway)


On the personal front, I had my IUD removed last month. So now it's time to get serious about getting pregnant. Idealy, dh would like to wait until Januery, it makes more fiancial sense to have the baby in October, when business (and money) picks up at the resturant where he works. And since my maternity leave is unpaid, it really does make sense. But I've waited long enough! Besides, if I can get preg this month, that means a August birth, which is good for school. The cut off date for school starting is September 1st around here. (Its good to plan ahead!)

I did some stamping recently. I went to my monthly stamp camp that my upline hosts (and allows me to attend, shes awesome!) Here are some pictures.

This is a gift card holder and its roughly 2 3/4 by 4 1/4 inches.

This card is made with the pick a petal set. Clever isn't it?

This is a tri-fold card. The green is on the second layer and the snowman is the inner most layer. It's also a non-standard sized at 4 1/2 by 3 3/4 inches.

And lastly, this is one of a double page spread we did. The other isn't finished, the mattes were left off so it could be custom made after the pictures were decided on. I have no idea what pictures will eventually end up here. Maybe something from the upcoming Christmas.

I've got some more scans, but they can wait.

Have a great night!
