I meant to post this last night, but J didn't finally give up and go to sleep until 9 pm. And I wasn't far behind by that point. Otherwise, J really is doing so much better with sleeping. It's been quite a few weeks since he has woken me up at night for anything but a few moments. As he approaches two, I find that I am really enjoying him at this age. He can communicate a little, walk/run and feed himself. But he still loves to snuggle. His temper tantrums seem to be improving as well. Or maybe I just know what to do know so it doesn't seem like a big deal. He seems happier lately then he had in the previous couple months. I think he was begging for limits, but I didn't realize it. At 18 months, the last thing I would have thought was that he needed firm guidelines but I guess he did.
I think this week is going to go by fast and the weekend/next week even faster. This gives me stress about the old Christmas/birthday to-do list. Here is a layout along those lines:
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy Patterned paper Wrapping paper; Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy Buck Naked Ornament Stocking; Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy Stocking die cut; plus White and Black Bazzil, an old Me and My big ideas transparency and Making Memories Ribbon.
Instructions: Print journaling and green part of title on white cardstock. Add transparency 12 x 12 cut into a rectangle. Add photo on top of transparency. Mat with Black Cardstock. Add Ribbon on top of Wrapping paper patterned paper. Add matted Title/journaling/photo block. Tie and add bow of ribbon. Assemble Cosmo cricket die cut stocking and adhere.
I took the picture, it was for my christmas cards last year. I was playing at the Color Me Daisy tranparency blog challenge. I love transparencies, I have a ton and I need to use them more often. I just feel like lately there are so many things I want to do, and create scrapwise. I think it is just this time of year that makes even the most organized person feel overwhelmed. Here is a peek at something I am working on today:
Hope you have a great Monday!
