i said a hip hop

the hippie the hippie

to the hip hip hop, a you dont stop

the rock it to the bang bang boogie say up jumped the boogie

to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat

Nope - I haven't lost my mind. But thanks for being concerned. I get this song in my head anytime I think about this:

>>>>>>Wrappers Delight<<<<<<

I love Christmas. I love putting up the Christmas Tree super early. I love wrapping presents all pretty, although I tend to just do more plain wrapping now a days - back in the day though my wrappings were as much of a gift as the gift was. I love Christmas music. I love driving around looking at Christmas lights. I love it all. Oh, I love Christmas presents too!

And I love Christmas projects. I love to make things Christmasy. I guess that goes back to the days of younger years when we made Christmas ornaments for the tree. I just love it.

So go check out Wrappers Delight - one class peek has already been given by the wonderfully talented Virginia. She totally rocks. I love her classes - they are always fun - they always push me outside of what I would normally do. I've learned to layer layer layer from her. I've learned that most of the time I just have to put thread through buttons on a page or project. I've learned that everything doesn't have to be perfect - it's ok if a button isn't in the exact middle of a flower or whatever. Her project for the Wrappers Delight event looks like so much fun. I can't wait to see it in person.

On to other news. The next Harry Potter movie was supposed to be released in November of this year - but it's being put off until the following Summer!! SUMMER!! Good grief. I've heard two stories - one about Harry being in a play and bad publicity and junk and then something about them thinking they'll make more money if it's released in the Summer. WHATEVER! I'll still see it but I'm not happy about having to wait longer. That's NOT FAIR.

But thanks to Harry Potter and his Broadway play and the movie being put off - Twilight the movie has been changed to released November 21st instead of December 2nd. So that makes up for having to wait for Harry. I canNOT wait to see Twilight. I've read all the books now and have obsessed over them and thought deeply about them and just loved every page. I'm almost done with my second reading of Breaking Dawn - I stopped so I could read Fearsome Fourteen - or whatever it's called. The fourteenth Stephanie Plum book. I'm not very far in, but I'm ready to get going with it - I want to get back to Edward and Bella.

Speaking of Bella -I was reading blogs this morning and there was an update on the Creative Cafe blog - they highlight a different scrapbook store that has a Creative Cafe - and the one today was Bella Scrapbooking!! Cool name huh? I think one of the owners is named Bella. Cute! Their Creative Cafe was really cute. I love the one at Scrap Etc. I can't wait for the new stuff to come in. I can't wait to see all the new tags - polka dots - YUMMY! And I'm hosting the next Happy Hour - next Saturday from 12 - 2, I believe. We're making something really cute!! I'd show you a picture - but not just yet. I'd rather you be so excited that you check my blog every single day in hopes of a peek! :)

Ok, I'm off - I'm so sleepy. I was out late scrapbooking and didn't get home until 1:30 and couldn't read because Jason threatened to go sleep in another room if I even thought about turning the lamp on - I can't sleep without reading, so I just laid there forEVER trying to fall asleep - it took a while and I was freezing. Then Cole wakes up at 6:30!!!! He doesn't even wake up that early on school days - I always have to wake him up. Why does this happen on Saturday?? So I made him get back in his bed and I laid down with him in there but he would not go back to sleep - I dozed off and on until 7:30 when he proclaimed that the sun really was up now - it wasn't too early anymore. Good Grief!! So we've been up a while and Jason is still snoozing. I'm jealous!

I have been cracking up at the WD lyrics! We need to have a big party the night of the Twilight movie release. Can't wait!

LOL!!! WD does sound like a lot of fun. Too bad I will be missing it. I guess since I am running out of stuff to read, I'll go ahead and buy E & BD.

I cannot believe the put off the HBP either!!!!! So upset!!!!

And doesn't that always happen. You have the perfect day to sleep in and that's when your kids decide to get up at the butt crack of dawn!

Love it- you are the sweetest.

I thought of you yesterday because I made myself put buttons on a page without thread. I'm such a risk taker, huh? ;)
