Random updates...

First up a card I made with the SoML September kit:


I just love how it turned out. Probably my favorite card I've made. There was just so much cool stuff in this kit.

I made the Catwalk again, for the second time in three weeks over at SIS TV! This time, it was my Little Miss Poopy Pants page, chosen by Lisa Garay. Cindy also had one of her SoML pages chosen for the catwalk, and Sally had one of her SoML pages chosen as Layout of the Day a few days ago! Cool.

My birthday box from 2Peas finally came today! Check out all these goodies my mom sent me:


I'm so glad I picked out all that Love Elsie stuff, considering that the line is no more...I will miss it, it's my absolute favorite. If you don't know the scoop on this, Elsie resigned from KI to take on some other projects. She wrote about it on her blog here, at the bottom of the post.

I also got a suprise box from Amazon, from my sister, with an Alan Rickman movie! It's The Search for John Gissing. I've been wanting to see it for ages....it was never released in theatres.

I've made a few changes in my mind about the Etsy shop. I've come up with a few new ideas, and I also decided to change the name. I always knew if I ever had any kind of shop it would be called Nelo Paperie. Nelo (pronounced knee-low) is short for Penelope. I had a friend a few years back who said once that if her name was Penelope, she'd go by Nelo instead of Penny. I've loved it ever since. So, the shop will be called Nelo Paperie and will have all kinds of cool suff, including the awesome crocheted type embellies I mentioned before. I'm even thinking of having some custom designed papers....I have to look into it. All kinds of ideas are popping out of my head!

In completely random news....apparently the new, big trend at Fashion Week was Harem Pants. Looks like I can start wearing my bellydance costumes out and about and be completely in style. Hehee.
