inspired ideas...


Do you know how you feel when you are sure that you are giving someone a really wonderful present...one that is going to make them squeal (and possibly even wet their pants) in excitement.

And you sit there trying not to scream "Open it!"

Come on...Open it!

(click on the image above...and I really hope you like it)

Amy said...

I can't decide what project to tackle first!!! I'm thinking the ABC learning toy will be my homemade Christmas gift for Noodlebug this year.

After everything that has happened in your life over the last few years, it warms my hear to see the words "my son Alfredo" in your ezine.

This is a beautiful publication. Can't wait for the next issue!!!
