a week in snapshots

A treat in the washer--better than finding cash in your coat? I can't decide.

Shattered eyeshadow--sad, sad, sad

Investing in mini loaf pans to optimize pumpkin bread baking--obviously

My name in the acknowledgments of a book I worked on at the Maxwell Institute--awesome. I feel like a secret celebrity at my new job. But really, I'm sure I'm the only one who feels that way.

Josh stocked up on more wooden models, especially since it looks like Michael's isn't going to stock them anymore.

Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint + fake pumpkins--you see where I'm going with this? I knew you'd love it too.

My favorite vignette in the home currently--I loved doing the embroidery projects (the reading mudflap image was Josh's idea, actually), and I sustained several hot glue burns while assembling the wreath. The Trick-or-Treat art was a birthday present from my mother. I love it all. (PS--Did you notice the hint of teal ribbon I used to finish the inside of the wreath? I love that final touch. And attn: Allison: please note my beloved Asher Lev copy peeking out from under Trick-or-Treat frame. )

This weekend I'm going to settle in to listen to General Conference, the semiannual meeting where we get to hear from our prophet. Thought that prophets existed only for the Bible? Think again, and be really glad you did. I know I am.

I hope your week was as good as mine and that your weekend is delightful!

LOVE the "Reading is sexy" embroidery. I want the "Reading is sexy" shirt Rory wears in GG. In fact, I might actually search for it right now...

And I'm so excited to see Asher Lev. I'm so jealous of your first edition. Also, can I say, sometimes I think about things that I want someone's opinion on, and I often think of you. Which makes me a bit sad that we've never been friends when we live in the same city. Come visit Boston! You could see Dan, too.

1. I bought Eva one of those wooden models at Michaels and it was a total bust. It was the Eiffel Tower, and she loved it, but even with help, she couldn't assemble it and it literally broke into dumb balsa-wood pieces. Humph.

2. I love glitter pumpkins.

3. Your Reading is Sexy embroidery is the cutest thing ever!

Love your book wreath! So pretty! I too got quite a few burns when I made mine! Looks like you are keeping busy!

I was sad to see that your eye shadow met a sad end. I hate it when that happens.
Originally I thought the reading embroidery piece said "reading is sassy." But I like the actual saying as well!

Denise said...

So you're involved in money laundering, eh?

So sad, sad, sad about the eyeshadow. I hate it when that happens!

Love the set of pans for pumpkin bread, love the glitter spray paint, love it that Josh likes to shop at Michael's, love that I have a celebrity editor-daughter, love your embroidery and your wreath, love General Conference, love the Prophet, love YOU!

I love finding money in the washer (or anywhere else!).

I love your reading embroidery projects, so great! You could sell the reading is sexy one for sure!
