Mother's Day Eve

I already got my gift, and it's freaking fantastic. :) I will share on Sunday...but today I just wanna blab! A little. So you know I'm still alive!

I've had a layout sitting on my desk for a week now, it actually had DUST on it!! *blush* I am working on finishing that up tonight..but the internet is sooo distracting! teehee.

Tomorrow, Jamie is working until 2, and he has explicitly instructed I must vaccate the premesis when he gets home, because him and DS (6 months on Mother's Day) are busy working on something!! *giggle* I can't wait!

So, I'm actually excited to just get out tomorrow and get to some thrift shops. I am on the prowl for some vintage children's book, and a copy of Alice in Wonderland.

I am obsessed with Alice, and all things wonderland...and not the Disney version..but the whole idea of the magical place. It all started when I started buying this retro colour tealy green stuff at Winner's (there is a US equivalent store just can't remember the name) with the name "tea with alice." Cute, right? So, now I have my heart set on decorating Wonderland style!!! Not Disney style..but think colours and teacups etc. It sounds corny...but in my mind wonderful...and not tacky. It will be tough. It will be vintagey Alice.... so I'm looking to collect tea tins, and I'll be making some funky art, and a nifty chandelier. ;) But, it won't be for this it's kind of all in the planning my mind! Does anyone here have Alice in Wonderland type stuff? Tea stuff?? Getting rid of it? :D

Vintage children's books. I am obsessed with vintage. Really. Lately it's vintage paper/cutouts etc. I NEED!!! *sigh* How badly... Hope to come across something tomorrow!

Anyways, I leave you with a layout, just in case you get bored reading all this stuff!!!

This was done using a pagemaps Sketch. FP papers and felt, We R Memory Keepers chipboard "you" and some DB frills, and one beautifully gorgeous son. :)
