February 19

First, on a completely unrelated note... a very happy birthday to my little brother Chris, who is 28 years young today. Apparently he also has no cavities. Congratulations. ;-)

I was creatively uninspired in the photography department today... my excuse being that we did nothing interesting, and my kids have been cranky and not particularly photogenic. Those cranky boys are currently spinning around our tiny living room, treating their stuffed dogs to an amusement park type ride. THEY are creative! Brayden will be hacking up a lung (still fighting off his cough) by the time they are done, but I won't tell him "I told you so!" ;-)

I digress. Those two monkeys are both coming up on birthdays and my REAL excuse for not being creative today is that I used up all my creativity on coming up with a design for their birthday party invitation. I am always my own worst critic with my designs, and today is no exception. I'm pretty pleased with the ultimate result, but I can't help but think it could be better! The few who have seen it so far though seem to like it, so I'll stick with it. Today's picture is of my "workspace" - the coffee table at the end of our couch is the throne for my laption, external harddrive, notepad with endless to-do lists, and more. Underneath the table is a basket full of cross stitch projects (I finished on yesterday, which is why I was able to work on the bday invite today), photography books, cds, computer cords of various kinds... my "office." Ha ha. The invite is up on my new-ish (two months old) laptop. But because you can't really SEE it, here's the ACTUAL invitation I'll be printing (not to spoil it for those of you who will be receiving one in the mail!)... although it's not quite done yet!
