picture pages, picture pages

anyone else grow up watching fat albert, wishing that their parents could afford to buy the follow along book? i still loved the show, even without the book. anyway, as promised i charged up my batteries yesterday and took some pictures. the august theme for the snailmail swap was crafting fun, and sweet jes delivered! look at all these great goodies!

a grab bag full of beautiful paper scraps for cards, two awesome vintage vogue patterns, beautiful vintage fabric, an amazing book full of craft projects to share among friends, some cute picture tiles, and a beautiful decoupaged (?) bottle that i suspect she did herself. there was also some maine goodies, but i have already tucked those away in my kitchen!

i was also very pleasantly surprised to receive a package from myra. a while ago she put out a thrifting challenge with a prize for the winner, and i won! i never win anything, but really myra just goes crazy overboard! im serious, look at this amazing bag she sent me! it is the cutest thing.

not to mention the stickers, vintage lace trims, and cute flips. but seriously, her stitchwork is just amazing, i tried to take a close up picture but it was blurry. the absolute best part about this bag?? its mini! just the perfect size for collette, and she loves it too!

as a matter of fact, i couldnt get her to sit still. she was too busy putting things in it on the go. i posted my other attemps on flickr. thank you so much myra, it is just perfect! eliot was on the go today as well. today was his first day of pre-school! it was just a hour long get to know your teacher and check out your room type of day, but he is definitely ready to go back tuesday. i took the prerequisite first day of school picture.

dont worry, i will get the official picture on tuesday, backpack, lunchbox and all! hee hee, they are so cute. speaking of cute, i posted the pictures from mike and julies shower on sunday on my flickr account. jeff, i think you especially need to check them out, there are some excellent thumbs up pictures to be found (use the link over there on the left). you will be pleased. more pictures and news to follow tomorrow. stay tuned. huffmania in da house....

I love the pictures of Collette and the bag! It really is just her size!

Yeah for Eliot on starting his first day of pre-school! Such a big day. I took so many pictures of Buddy that day too.

somehow "being silly" to the side of the camera turns into "making a fool of myself" when the kids make those faces.

That picture of Collette and Eliot is so cute I had to close the window lest I take a bite out of this monitor. Here's a question for you. "Eliot" has no repeated letters. "Collette" has two sets of repeated letters. Will the next one have three sets of triple letters in his/her name? Is this some sort of Huffman identification system?
