35 : currents + a giveaway

time : about 6 hours shy of the big 3-5
location : scraproom
wearing : jeans + a new tee from Express. And can I tell you how happy I'll be when it's warm enough to be barefoot? Thrilled.
eating : almonds + chocolate chips.
listening : to Aladdin in the background. It's one of the few "princess" movies Morgan hasn't seen and she just had to have it during this morning's trip to the library.
on my nightstand : Quiet + the latest issue of Self.
on my desk : a sewing machine that needs to be re-threaded, black gouache, more supplies I'm collecting for my This is Me album, a half-done layout and a box of new stamps for the shop.
loving : my new bag!
feeling : like I've stalled out. I'm not sure if I should just let it be for a while or push through it.
hoping : for motivation, inspiration + some kind of sign that I'm headed in the right direction.
wondering : why Parker is sleeping so crappy lately.
enjoying : today 1000% more than yesterday. The sunshine helps.
collecting : quotes + phrases + lists + notebooks.
looking forward : to dinner with my little family, a glass of wine + seeing my mom and sister + nephews this week. Hooray for spring break.

and last but not least, giving away : bits of my past Studio Calico kits, mostly Project Life goodies. Want a tiny peek?
I have a small box packed with journaling cards, embellishments (mostly unused), some diecuts + labels, and a couple stamp sets (lightly used). Washi too if I can jam it in. :) If you'd like dibs on it, leave me a comment below and I'll choose a winner Friday night. US residents only please.

And please accept my advance apologies about needing to enter a captcha code now. I've been bombarded by a crazy amount of blog spam the last month or so and I've been testing a lot of different ways to moderate it. It's annoying, I know, but this is the only thing that is working.

inspired by the lovely Tina Aszmus currents series.

  1. Not entering the giveaway because I already get the kits but I was getting tons of spam and disallowing anonymous comments seems to have solved it. :)
