How much DO you love me?

Over the weekend, I kept thinking about my friends going to the cool Queen of the Crop. I wondered what cool things they were making. I wondered what cool products they were buying. Better yet, I wondered what new phrase would come out of this trip that would be added to "shut yo mouf" and "it doesn't matter what state we're in."

So I decided to drown my selfish feelings of not being able to go with a few Creating Keepsakes mags from the library. I discovered these a few weeks ago, and why it took me that long to figure that out is beyond me.

I sat at the jr. sized table in the kid's part of the library as the Man entertained himself with board books, puzzles, and playing on their computer. It is a great time to just unwind, especially when you have only one kid to lose in the stacks.

I opened up the October issue of the the magazine, and instantly found this:


I jokingly looked at the Man and said "do you think Daddy would buy that for Mommy?" and he instantly said HE would buy it for me.

You see, we are space challenged in this house. Maximum amount of crap vs. minimum amount of square footage. This would be the PERFECT solution for our small house. It could be an armoire all folded up, and a scrapbook haven when opened and utilized to its full potential. It really is a sweet setup.

I couldn't wait to get home and look it up online.

And then my bubble burst. Any guesses?

Too funny. I get excited about stuff like that too (same issues with max crap and min space). Wayne just glazes over when I look through catalogs like that.

But then, I glaze over when he starts reciting some boat auction on eBay, too;)

"You shut your dirty mouth", "stinky kitty vs. freshest kitty on the block", "stale meat", and "I don't EVER want to see that again"..just to name a few..a few others I just can't write here..
We had an awesome time girlie, but we MISSED you! We talked about you..we would be working and then someone would say "oh, look at that whatever (blank board book)..would all just look at each other and say "Mere"...You've left an impression, for sure. You HAVE to go with us in the spring. Christie was crowned Queen, so we have to return..
More on that later :)
That scrap closet would be perfect in your house! Love it!

Get ready to shell out over $ 2000 for it, though!
