frost and cheer

the best little part of today [saturday] was...
going christmas shopping!

I worked on black friday and didn't really venture out for good deals. 
and then saturday I woke up with nothing much on my to-do list and decided to do some christmas shopping.

it was absolutely the most fun christmas shopping I've ever done!

a good five hours, wandering around [our very small] town, looking casually and enjoying the weather and the people around me, and taking pictures of things that caught my eye

what was your favorite thing about today [or saturday] ?

Aw, your pictures are so pretty! So glad you enjoyed :) My favorite thing about today is that all the little kids are running around the villiage with cow bells. it sounds lovely! (I'm not sure why they are though..haha)

favorite thing about today? getting some orders for dani press, my card line. it's been a lot of hard work, but momentum is building, so i'm stoked! hope you had a rad tuesday.

and i LOVE the background of your blog. mine is sort of similar (it's brown paper) but i love the wood!

Fun! I love Christmas shopping -- especially when it's not in a mall :).

You asked me yesterday if the tape I used on my last post was from Pugly Pixel, and yes it is. I'm having so much fun playing! :) But, I do have Photoshop at work. I recently downloaded Picassa to my home mac though, and am hoping the tapes work with that program too ... just haven't had a chance to experiment yet.

i still haven't done my shopping yet but today i did some brainstorming and i think i have some good ideas up my sleeve. i like it when i know what to get people and then just go out and do it.

today i was happy that some meetings were cancelled. perhaps not the most exciting thing ever, but it certainly made me more relaxed :)

Those photos look magical.
We had guests staying over from a different city on Saturday, and that definitely made my weekend! :)
