Cute as a Button

Yay for Thursdays! I can't wait to watch their baby coming into the world today. I've been rooting for Jim and Pam since the beginning! I also want to watch ABDC. Can't wait to see what the crews come up with dancing to Lady Gaga!!

But I may only see a part of the shows as we still have to pick up our car rental. I'm also quite nervous about packing for our mini trip. *sigh* Last time for Disneyland, I was so scared of over-packing that I actually underpacked.

This time, we are heading towards snow. Anybody out there have tips on what to pack for a 9-month-old baby? We're not used to snow where we live and so far, I've packed a snowsuit, a couple of hats (that cover the ears), gloves, a pack & play, and a saucer (so that he has something to sit on when we are outside). Am still debating whether or not to bring my ergo... how the heck will my 'bundle of clothes' fit in there after layers and layers and then a snowsuit?!

Anyway, thought I 'd take a break from packing and tell you about my card today. The lovely Sunghee has graciously sent me this Gorguss image.

I've mixed some items I had from a class at Suzy's old store (the sentiment, button, string and beads) with patterned paper from Fiskars (heidi grace designs circa 2007!). The blue flowered one and the beads are my favorite parts of the card. That paper had sparkles -- you can see it better at the pic below. And I just LOVE adding a bit of homemade bead-y bling to the card! I threaded the beads into a thin wire & voila!

Ooops! Pardon the bit of uncolored image that is showing. I knew I should've cut that out!

See you next week!
