happy mail

Jenni_bowlin_kit_november_07I just got this in the mail.  my Jenny Bowlin kit for November.  I went all out and also got the add-on kit (which I just saw is sold out- sorry!).  How great are these colors? Papers? Designs? Trinkets?  I love Jenni’s style, very vintage and she manifests it perfectly in her product design.  The Tiffany blue with the different shades of coffee (not to mention the coffee coaster in the middle) just immediately brought Breakfast at Tiffany’s to mind.  We are big Audrey Hepburn fans over here.  Anyway, I’m  calling this my Breakfast at Tiffany’s kit & I can’t wait to play with it (which unfortunately won’t be anytime soon)!  Those little coasters with the childrens’ silouhettes?  I canNOT wait – have some ideas for layouts with Sebi & Lexi.  Anyway, this is the only kit I get & I’ve only been a subscriber for the last six months or so, but I highly recommend it.  I feel a bit of guilt whenever I get it though because Memory Works also has a fabulous kit, memoryworks express, which I haven’t taken advantage of.  Isn’t it pretty?  Anyway, since half of my Jenni Bowlin kits still sit untouched (gasp!), simply because I don’t have the time to get to them, I can’t justify adding the memoryworks express to my collection…..yet!  I’m hoping to have a better set-up at the new house, where I can scrap more efficiently and come the new year feel inspired to add it to my repertoire.
Now I have to go since both of my children are home from school sickish.  they got their flus shots yesterday & both woke up with fevers so I decided to keep them home.  Well after some Tylenol and about 1/2 hour of sleeping in they are feeling themselves again.  Good times!  Happy hump day!

    I got my JBS kit yesterday and just barely now opened it–love the colors! I wish I had gotten the add-on but was on vacation with no internet. I do have the project though…going to do a Thanksgiving centerpiece with it.

I love hearing from you!
