start spreading the news...

Do you remember how I told you that we picked both of my sisters' names and we were cooking up a big wonderful surprise for them?

I'm so happy to finally be able to tell you...We are going to NYC!

Oh, yes...I said "we"! I can't send them by themselves, now can I? It'll be just us three girls. Anyone who knows me well will probably be nervous to think that I will be the guide for this tour.

We're going by train next week for a day trip. And we'll see The Color Purple in the afternoon. My sister Jessica is telling everyone within earshot and is planning out our day based on recommedations from her friends, coworkers and customers. My sister Jennifer is excited too...but perhaps a bit more nervous than excited. Once we get there, I know she'll have the most fun of all of us.

I had a wonderful Christmas day...oh that Santa really knows how to spoil a girl! And my sister Jessica (who picked my name) got me the Cricut machine I've been wanting. I'm going to search out some project ideas to get my feet wet and then I'll start dreaming up some of my own.

I have a ton of things to do but all I want to do is sit here curled up in my big chair, catch up with you and daydream about the Big Apple and what things I'll make with my fancy new paper cutting machine.

You're bound to have a great day! I love NYC at this time of year... and a Broadway show? What fun! I can only imagine what you will come up with to do with that Cricut machine.

Oh AMy!! What a lovely gift! I hope you girls have the best time touring the Big Apple.
And I'm sooo jealous of your cricut machine. As I was punching out numerous gift tags by hand this past weekend, I was dreaming of a die-cut machine. And boy, does that one look FANCY! Let us know how it works. :)

Hi Amy,

They opened the roof of the The Met for drinks and dining. It's been real warm up here lately. You'll probably have good weather.

And now SoHo is the hottest shopping area if you're into that.

Midtown is the most crowded area. That's the one thing to remember.

I know you will fun lots of fun while you're here. What a great present!

I was cruising around blog land today and came upon a link to this site.
Ohhhhh my golly! You've got to check out Heather Bailey's blog. She has the most wonderful tutorial set-up to make YO-YO's!! I can't wait to get started on a Valentine's Day swag.
Enjoy the Big Apple! It's one of my most favorite places ever...Give a big wave to those beautiful Chagall's at Lincoln Center.
