Just Me

I don't really watch television too much, but right now I'm kinda wishing I had a special someone to share this Olympic opening night with. So beautiful. It's been comforting to have it on in the background as I finish preparations for Cub's birthday party tomorrow afternoon.
Well, I now feel like I am now officially a MOM in every sense of the word. This is my first party. She'll be four on Tuesday. I know, I know. But I really am not a party person. They scare me. I have to admit, seeing the house all prettied-up for this little princess party is giving me the "warm fuzzies." (oh, yuck.) It's even a bit exciting...A special thank-you is in order to this beautiful gal for all the great suggestions.
Here's Cub and her buddy from downstairs filling the pinata. Sorry for the sugar-high blur.

Okay, so here is that puppet I wrote about a bit ago. Of course, he's not finished. He will be swinging a vintage tea pot when I finally get another minute for crafty indulgences. I became dizzy with inspiration when I found Arounna Khounnoraj's craft projects. So did many, many, others. She is a genius. Period. Arounna, wherever you are, I love you. I thank you. My goal is to complete all 30 projects!! Someday. I just deleted (by accident) one of the many other unfinished projects, the fabric garland for the party. Never did get around to cutting out all of those dang shapes. I won't give up, though. It will be cute just dangling around for non-festivities.
And I wanted to share this with everyone 'cause I really like it.
This was a rare mall purchase at Claire's, of all places.
It's a coin purse. It makes me happy.
