Part of me is still waiting for summer to start and the work-side of me is already into the holidays (publishing and advertising). Anyhoo, had some time to slow down and catch some simple fun outtings. I'll have to post soon about the CKU happenings.
However, I wanted to post this simple truth that my son said that I often repeat to myself several times a week (since I am naturally somewhat of a cynic and have a circling-the-drain perspective a lot). He's 3-1/2 years ago. I asked him if he was happy. He said, "Yes!" I asked him why and expected an answer like he had fun playing with his friends, or liked his toys or something along that line. But he looked at me quizzically and said, "Because I WANT to."
Choose happiness. It's always there, you just need to let it in.

Whenever my hairstylist wants to cut my hair short, I tell her I can't because I'll be mistaken for Pat.
Thanks for fun collage, Jessica!

Also, included a photo puzzle for each attendee-packaged in clear cello. Heard some really nice comments from parents about these since they were toddlers and just starting to be exposed to puzzles. Had a lot of fun doing these.

How many times have I cut something off that I needed, or trimmed it a hair off, then when re-trimming, it became jaggedy? Or trimmed it whanky?
This has a red laser light that you hand-calibrate, then it shows you the trim line! Oh, when the lighting it dim, this will be a life saver!
I thought the Create-A-Cut would be the last trimmer I would ever need. But this beauty...ah, can't wait for it to come in!

I also spent a lot of time making Thank You cards for the Tman's birthday. How much time would you spend on handmade cards for 3-year-olds? Is it OK to have non-handmade cards if you're into the paperarts?! And, worst yet, what if they found out! You give out store-bought cards and then someone finds out your a paper artist/craftsy type. Maybe this has more dire implications than if you didn't give a card at all!

Right now, I'm just going to use them as organizers. Got the idea from Simplify101--although I did order the wonderful russell+hazel binders--love those!
