Today I am....

feeling:  sneaky.  I have a couple of Studio Calico sneaks from the October kit at the bottom of this post.
wondering:  if Morgan will go to school tomorrow.  Unmedicated, she has a temp of 103.  She says her legs are tired.  But after she gets some grape Tylenol in her, she's bouncing off walls.  um.  okay.
thinking: about Christmas already.  I got my winter assignments for Scrapbook and Cards Today, and oh my word, I hope this article I'm doing will knock your socks off.  I can't wait to share!  I'm going to see if I can share some sneaks at my projects just like my kit work.
reading:  the Beekeeper's Apprentice.  This is not a new release but I was at the library the other day and there were a couple of these stacked up on the bestseller's table so I thought I'd check it out.  And for the first time in a long time I was tuned in to Oprah when she revealed the next book on her book club list, and it's called Freedom.  In recent years I've done much better about checking books out from the library rather than purchasing them.  I hear great things about this one but will wait for my turn at the library (I'm currently 93rd on the list) before determining whether I should purchase it or not.
I'm also reading 1-2-3 Magic.  Parents trying to figure out what to do with onery kids?  You need to check out this book.  I feel like I finally have some tools for parenting that make some sense.  I checked this one out from the library too but know I'll need to keep it so already have it on preorder from Amazon.  The newest version is released 10/1. 
eating: roast beef sandwiches for dinner.   We have some roasts from last year's beef in the crock pot right now.  I'm also going to chef up some au gratin potatoes and fry up some zucchini as well.  Did you know that grass fed beef are higher in Omega 3's than grain fed beef?  Go organic, and go with grass fed cows, okay?  They are better for you.

Right now it's raining buckets and a good day to stay cozy at home.  What are you up to? 

And how about them sneaks?

I got 3 add-ons and several shop items this month. I couldn't help myself!

Have a great Sunday!  Davinie


  1. Love the dimension on your sneaks! Can't wait to see more! <3

  2. We discovered the 1-2-3 Magic thing a few years ago (one of the more informative Parent Education nights at my daughter's preschool) and it changed everything around here! The girls are so tuned in now that usually I don't have to get further than 1 to get them to pay attention and obey. Good luck! Happy reading!!

  3. I love these 'a little bit of everything' posts! So fun!

    Super sneaks!

    And, yes, grass-fed beef is our big thing over here, as in, that is what we raise, sell and eat!!!! You be speakin' my language.

    Love the book shares... I've been reading eat/pray/love for about 3 months... I was stuck in 'pray' for a lonnnnnng time..

  4. 1-2-3 Magic worked wonders for us. Good luck!
    Love your sneaks, too.

  5. I've been doing books on CD from the library while driving. Then I feel like I'm multi-tasking. ;)
    LOVE what you did with those window frames in your sneak!

  6. Oh my oh my oh my!

    And I do love my grass fed beef - so much tastier!

  9. Can't wait to see the full layouts! 123 Magic works so well if you really stick with it. My daughter is super mischevous but when I count to 2 she is back on her best behavior. Hope it works for your family!

  12. Oooh, yummy sneaks! I'm trying to organize my piles of post-its. Seriously:)

  13. totally in love w/ that window sneak. wow.

  14. I do know grass fed beef is higher in Omega 3’s. I work with La Cense Beef, but for me grassfed beef is the only way to go! The website has a lot of information on the health benefits of grass fed beef, along with some delicious recipes.
