i heart books!

harper and i went to the bookstore today after dropping esme' off at school. we browsed for at least an hour and i bought a book that has been on my wish list for awhile, then we sat in the cafe while i sipped my chai tea latte and shared an oatmeal raisin cookie with my handsome and well behaved little guy. it was a lovely afternoon!

and then, when we arrived home this was waiting on my doorstep::

i immediately dug into the bag and found these... crafting magazines and books... sewing, quilting, knitting, scrap booking (which i don't do but the pictures and projects are very inspiring anyway!) and some kids crafts too. they are all missing the covers as they were discarded by the fabric store that my mom works next to.

and look at the sweet birdie crafts i have already discovered! squeee!!

my plan is to get my crowd fed, groomed, filled with bed time tales and all tucked in so i can curl up on the couch with my huge stack of new books and a cup of tea. it is killing me to see them neatly stacked on the table, pages just waiting to be dog eared and projects eager to be added to my ever growing creative list. but i know if i dive in now there will be no turning back. ahhh, bedtime can't come soon enough on this day...

i do, i heart books... and my mama too!

WOW! Those are SO cool! I love those pictures... would you scan them and send those two projects to me? I love those little birds. Are those done by the same lady that did last minute gifts?

Love Val
