it's been awhile- or so it seems... last week was jampacked with greenbeanbaby family goodness and now there's a good week's worth to post about... so everyday this week, you'll have your fill of paper, ramblings, and greenbeanbaby happiness... and what better way to begin, than by showing you the wonderful goodies sent by sweet sweet andrea....
wait! maybe i should give you an intro of how i met andrea... it began with ramel, actually... he started going on halobabies.net since it's halo AND art related... he met a talented artist named kalel [NOT his real name ;)]... the two began an internet connection and one day, kalel's wife named andrea emailed me and began commenting on my blog... her and kalel are a wonderful couple, and i wish this post could express it better...in between all this, ramel is getting his site hooked up by mr. kalel himself... they even did an interiew together.... and me and andrea continue to chat, email, and maintain a wonderful long distance friendship ;)
so, last week, we received a wonderful and beautiful package from andrea... she had gifts for both kids!! of course, the drawing book and tablet was for diego... he LOVES it but dislikes hearing isabella crying... and she cries if she can't draw on this... so diego shares his wonderful gift with isabella and to admit, it's cute to see them both enjoying artwork... a chip off the ol' blocks ;)
andrea [who is a dancer] sent isabella her very first leotard... oh boy, i cannot wait to get photos of baby girl wearing it... as andrea and i chatted and emailed, she spoke of how she began ballet classes at a very young age... and that got me sooooooo excited and inspired for isabella... i mean, baby girl LOVES to dance!! and she loves to be on her tippy toes... and she loves music... and she loves girly things... would it be so far fetched to think she may happen to like ballet?? funny, when i showed her the leotard, she got all smiley, regardless of just waking up seconds ago...
and if a person doesn't already know, i love me some paper, right?! well, do you think andrea dismissed this fetish of mine?! of course not!! she sent oodles of embellishments and papers for me to google at and use... glittery, felt, embossed, and floral patterned products had me gushing like a kid given candy... aren't they all just lovely?! [squeals with delight] thank you so much andrea for such a wonderful and beautiful package of love and goodness!
now, i am off to rest... i cleaned my studio today to accomodate the pretty new papers given to me [and purchased over the weekend, which is another post].... i think i'm catching a cold so its best i take some tylonel and watch eureka til my sniffles have me falling asleep ;)
happy new week everyone!!!
