Oooohhh..."prizeys"! (And a swap)

To spite dropping Bryan off at the airport bright and early this am, I couldn't have asked for a better day. I got my package from my lovely swap partner, Jill, in the mail today! It couldn't have picked a better day to arrive on my door step. I LOVE everything I got, and I so adore Jill for sending it to me! As my friend, Maree, always said when she received a gift, "Oooooh...prizeys!" Here's a lookie:

In fact, I had SO MUCH FUN with the Red Velvet Art "favorite things" swap, that I decided to do a little swapjack of my own. I thought the "favorite things" theme would translate so nicely into a rendition of the Secret Santa swaps. It will be very similar to the Red Velvet swap with a little Chritmasy twist! So, if you enjoyed the Red Velvet swap and want to do it again, or if you missed out on it, go register for my swap over at And, if you're new to their website, you'll have to create your own "My Place" (don't doesn't take long). If you are new to the website, please register using this link, so that I can receive my "referral points". Pretty please? It should be tons of fun. So, what are you waiting for...SIGN UP ALREADY!

And, I have a movie recommendation for all of you. Have you seen Pan's Labyrinth? I loved it so. The cinematography is AMAZING, and it had a great story line. I watched it for the second time last night with my husband. He had never seen it before, and really enjoyed it too! However, if you don't like watching movies with subtitles, steer clear. It IS a foreign film. And, it's a bit gory, so wait until the kiddos go to bed. If you're thinking of the 80's movie Labyrinth a la' David Bowie (which I also love)...think again.

I'll leave you with a cute little picture that I took of Luka this morning. He is growing up way too fast...already pullng himself up to stand at the table, and he's only 7 months old. But, he's so stinkin' cute!

Oh, what wonderful prizeys you got!! :)

I loved the cinematography of Pan's Labyrinth, but found it too violet & gory for me. It was at the edge of my tolerance, but I loved the story. Also loved the underground feast scene -- so rich with color & texture!
