7 Quick Takes


1. Do you knit or crochet?  Do you know someone who does?  Then check out {this giveaway}!  (Ends December 18, 2013.)



2. I had intended to get my Christmas cards out early this year. (Did you see one of the outtakes from our photo shoot?  It's priceless.)  We moved and I thought that would help with all the "What's your new address?" messages. It hasn't quite happened yet.  If I can get them out by Monday I will call it a mild success.  (Not that I mind the messages, I just feel bad making other people try to track me down.)

3. You have to check out this article: Amazing Macro-Photography of Individual Snowflakes.  Seriously.

4. Just so you know, watching a movie like "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" while pregnant will leave you in tears for almost an hour.

5. Random plug here . . . I love followers and I love following new people.  If you add me via GFC or Bloglovin' let me know in the comments and I'll gladly return the favor!

6. I have been in awe of the towers and castles that Catherine has been constructing lately.  She went from building fairly simple towers (like these) to quite intricate and complex masterpieces.

7. On a related note to the above, I hadn't thought of myself as being "anti-flashy toy" but I am really coming round to that mentality.  Sometimes simplicity is best.  How about you?  Do you like all the noises and lights on "flashy toys" or do you prefer the more "simple toys"?
