On a Thursday...

I am

* WAITING for insurance approval to switch meds. Rituximab is holy cow expensive - $6500 or so per infusion (I will need 2). In the meantime, chemo & prednisone are the routine. Got a DEXA scan yesterday to look at bone loss from long term steroid use. Crossing my fingers that it isn't too bad.

*SIGNING kids up. Mason for kindergarten (gasp!) Matthew and McKelle for Driver's Ed (finally!) Max for baseball.

*PREPARING for the weekend. Mitchell is have his birthday party Saturday afternoon and I also agreed to host the dessert portion of McKelle's Sadie Hawkins date Saturday evening. We're thinking one of those cute dessert tables with a cowboy theme.

*PLAYING with Studio Calico's Into the Woods Kit and add-ons.




The striped paper just looked so much like spring - perfect for last year's Easter photos. It is punched with the circle dot punch from EK Success - hard to see in the photo, but adds a nice subtle touch IRL.

I love that Michael is always willing to be involved with our holiday fun, from dressing up at Halloween to dying eggs (his are always artistic!) with the kids at Easter. 




This one is pretty simple and I've scrapped these pictures of Mason before, but I really wanted to save some of the little love notes he likes to write to Michael and me. The hearts are punched from the KI button clip packaging and I used a bit of twine as well. It is actually green twine - I've noticed my photos are not translating well color-wise from iPhoto to Blogger lately - not sure why.

are you loving Into The Woods as much as I did? :)
answering your question - the yellow dot fabric - i bought it at Spotlight - no brand name. I guess it's the 'house brand' :))
