It's about that time...

for some LT sneaks! I absolutely loved this month's kits! I still have one more page to do, so I'll probably post another sneak of that tomorrow. But, here's what I have so far...







Now, don't think I forgot about January's "12 Months of Christmas" project. I know I promised to post it a couple of days ago. But, let's just say that something labeled as a "simple" sewing project turned out to be anything but. I'm nearly finished, but my LT projects needed to get done, so I had to take a break from other things. I plan on having the sewing project completed in the next couple of days, ready to post by this weekend. Want to know what we'll be making? Some cute little stuffed doggies! So, in the meantime, I'll give you a list of supplies to gather so that you'll be ready to play along. You will need: a pair of socks - neutral colored if you want a traditional looking dog, or you can funk it up with something more colorful (*new* clean ones, please... nobody wants to receive an adorable stuffie that stinks of toe jam), poly fill or some other sort of stuffing, needle and thread, scissors. Those are the basics. But to give you pup some personality, you might want some buttons for eyes, pipe cleaners if you want to make the ears stand up, a pom-pom or button for the news, ribbons for a collar, another patterned sock to make a sweater for your doggie, or anything else to doll your stuffed pal up.

On top of Label Tulip and my stuffie project, I have the most lovely box of goodies from the new Pink Paislee lines sitting at my feet, begging to be played with. In my opinion, they are quite different from previous PP collections... and I LOVE them! I just wish I could share some sneaks with you. *sigh*

Well, I'm off to watch Forgetting Sarah Marshall for about the 5th time this week (love that movie) while flipping through my Elsie recipe box book. I'm in search of some inspiration for a mini-book idea for the PP booth at CHA. I've made so many mini's lately, my mind is starting to run dry on topics to make books out of. Wish me luck!
