The design team from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is taking the week off, but the store is always open. So, if you
are feeling crafty, pop by and check out what's new and know that we will be back with lots of projects next week.
In the mean time, here's what's been happening with me.
The night before my birthday last week, we went to see the Black Swan. It was one of those psychological kind of thrillers, with a little bit of gore and smut thrown in. It got OK reviews, so we thought we would take a gamble. I give it a B-. It kept my attention, the acting was good, not sure if the end really pays off for me...
Then the hubby took me for dinner after at Pizzaria Cerino. The hand tossed Primo Pesto pizza is to die for :)
Yesterday there was a water main break near where the hubby works, and their building had no water. So, closing down early meant we could go see the movie we really wanted to see last week, but wasn't out yet.
The King's Speech is getting rave reviews for good reason, it's pitch perfect in every respect. Know that this movie is all talk, (with British accents) and no special effects (3-D glasses not required) and it rocks! And Colin Firth is a bit of a dish, so that helps ;) Maybe he will win the Oscar that I thought he should have won last year for his role in A Single Man.
See. It. Now.
My book club resumes back up in January. God Never Blinks is our pick. It's by a columnist who writes for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and it's basically a collection of her columns about life and observations. Uplifting and heartfelt, it's one of those books that make an ideal gift. Think graduation/ hostess gift.
Here are a couple of my favorite gifts from this year. Neither are lavish, but that is not what makes a gift great.
A Charlie Brown Tree complete with Linus's blanket and ornament.
And my very own Olivia! Isn't she perfect? She's one of my personal heroes in life. Spunky, artistic, funny, loves to sing (even tho she's bad at it) is a fashionista and dreams big dreams for herself...I love to buy the Olivia books as gifts, and yes, I own them all myself :)
I have made her patron saint of my craft space.
We have officially decided to do what we did the last 2 years for New Year's Eve. Stay in. I got the Surf (lobster) and the Turf (beef tenderloin), so we will be eating well. The question is, what movie to watch.
That's what is happening here, what's going on with you?
