Thank You Michelle and Doodlebug News

We were practically on our way to the airport when Michelle said, "hey your girls want some Halloween costumes?" Do they EVER?! We swung by Michelle's house where she pulled out a couple of costumes for the girls to try. To my great horror, First Born had the audacity to reject the first one presented to her, something about the red in the costume that she did not care for...  Before I could put an end to the impolite and unnecessary pickness, Michelle pulled out another costume that satisfied her!  Why couldn't she and Aubree live closer? lol.

I still have plans to make some kind of "evil" crown for First Born as requested by her.  But no sooner did I post my blog entry about my Cricut cards, the part that holds the blade broke!!  I am Cricut Expressionless right now and I'm not sure how to recover from this huge loss!  Apparently, Provo does not sell any spare parts to the machine to replace the simple holder for the blade...  oh let the tears of sorrow flow...
Onto happier news...  I created this layout to document the history of getting the costumes from Michelle using all Doodlebug products.  It was the layout I submitted to Doodlebug's design team call.  I am delighted to have made the team, the announcement is here. Again, let the tears flow, but at least these are happy ones.

Bummer about your Cricut. Could you buy a used one off Craig's List or e-bay and scavenge it for spare parts?

Yea Jing Jing! Congrats! I can't tell you how many times my 2 have blurted out less than appropriate responses. One Christmas my son was opening gifts and said "not clothes again!". I was appalled, especially since I'd schooled him on appropriste reponses beforhand. Grrr!
