top o' the mornin'.. oh wait, that was yesterday!

sorry i'm late-i've been crazy busy! hope your St. Patrick's Day was lucky & fun- we had a great day here at home- complete with green milk for the little kids & green beer for the old kids--good stuff!! i've been up to some crafty things that involve my sewing machine, thanks to some super cool classes at SIStv! This week, it was 'Sew Easy Aprons' taught by fashionista Martha Bonneau (goodness she's inspring!); the Jenni Bowlin project kit this month is super cute; i made some Easter cards using my new Karen Stolper stamp from American Art Stamps (and got to take another awesome card class of Laura's at my lss last Thursday); i watched the hubs participate in his first ju jitsu tournament; and today, (horn fanfare please) i hosted my first toddler party for my daughter's entire preschool class! We all met for a play date/lunch party in the park! There were 14 kids (all aged 5 & under) and 11 adults! Whew! Our family provided the cheese pizzas, drinks and some snacks, and other Moms made cupcakes & brought goodies too- everyone had such a great time! it was 80 degrees & sunny here today, so it was just a perfect day to be outside (despite everyone's allergies going crazy with all the pollen in the air!) the kids had the whole playground & sandbox to themselves & i even got a bit of a sunburn! in all the rushing i forgot my camera, but luckily, another Mom took some photos, so i'll try & get her to email me a few. Oh & if you haven't seen this month's Scripts kit- you're gonna want to drop everything RIGHT NOW & go order one--it is amazing- love LoVe LOVE (Can you say AccuCut OWLS! insert squeaky squeals here!) i cannot wait for some more crafty time to dig into this one!! happy, happy me! told ya i've been busy, LOL! the rest of this month is packed with continued 4x/wk of preschool classes, another party to attend, easter basket prep, & of course i'm going to a TWILIGHT DVD release party Sat night-wooHoo!! anyway- here's some pics:
