Okay, no time for Self-Portrait Tuesday. I am working working working on my Back-Tack bag and package and kit and everything to go in it. I have literally spent DAYS working on the felted bag. I'm SO THRILLED with the results I just can't tell you. It's my first real felting project (besides the jillion swatches I made) and it's been so fun I've got felted bag ideas to last me for years!! Oh the gifts, oh the STUFF. Oh, the ideas I've got in my little mind right now.
And I'm trying to push them all aside to focus completely on Back-Tack!! Which is very difficult with a toddler, being 8.5 months pregnant, and my son's birthday is today!
My only son, my darling Benny, is fourteen years old today. That makes me sound old. It would make me feel old if I had any sense. Of course I wouldn't be two weeks away from having my fifth baby if I had any sense. heh However, I did take a break over the past few days to go shopping with my husband and toddler and put together a birthday package full of stuff for my Benny. I had a very nice conversation with him tonight on the phone. He never does want to end the conversations. He always finds something more to talk about when I say, "Well, is there anything else you need to tell me or want to talk about?" Either I have to tell him it's time to give it up for his sisters so they can talk to me, or his dad or step-mother is telling him to get off the phone. I miss the kids a lot and I hate not being with him for his birthday. Hopefully next year will be different.
*SNAP!* Back to happy!
So I'm in the home stretch for my Back-Tack package. I think I'm going to Wichita tomorrow to do some last-minute shopping and will be sending the package probably on Thursday after all the wrapping and packing is done.
THEN, and only then, will I feel like I can indulge in the fun wonders that arrived in my Back-Tack package from tigerluxe! Oh she sent SO MANY WONDERFUL THINGS!! I've been through all of it twice and can't wait to go through it all again to take pictures. It won't all FIT in one picture so I'm sure the post will be a mile long. :::tapping feet::: I'm so excited! hehe Giddy with happiness about it, really. It's so nice to receive gifts. :)
Here's a picture of Emeline... not wanting to sit still for pictures!! ...or not. Typepad won't allow a picture right now. Let's hope they'll let me post this entry.
