haaaappppy newwww yeaaarrr!!!
so, we are back from iowa, the darkest, most dreary place ever. my mom complained of it, but i thought that everywhere that gets cold in the winter is the same. it isn't, though. my lord. we had a nice time hanging out with my parents and seeing the niece and nephews who are getting really big. crazy stuff. our flight home got bumped back a day, but other than that, everything went smoothly.
one of my favorite people ever, gabe, watched the cats for us. poor pavel hid away the whole time, like he usually does. when we got back, he was super cuddly, which is not really his way. he tries to act cool (as boys do) but he has been hanging out with us most all of the time. he even let me hug and kiss him. surprisingly, the kitten was the one that held a brief grudge. a few mintues is a long time when you are only 4 months old. jake picked her up and she wouldn't look at him. girls! otherwise, kahlo and peeps did fine and i think the really loved gabe. who doesn't? thanks gabe!
whilst in iowa, there was obviously lot of political suits down there. my mom kept getting phone calls and she caucus-ed. go mom! i think oprah may have inspired her.
today i did more paper beads to use for stitchmarkers or whatever, really, and i got caught up on some custom yarns. to-morrow i will have to pack up presents and some orders, so if i owe you a present, it will be coming, i swear it. i swear. and now, after the xmas rush, it will be even cooler to get something, right? i have a few really good ones that i am excited to send out, one is for the yarn wench. ooooh. so excited. ms. barbe has some good things coming her way, as does ms.katrina and ms. chocolatte who has been incredibly good to me with random gifts when i don't expect it.
i have been updating the www.luxe.etsy.com site daily and will have more stuff as soon as i get some photos done for new things. so much to do. i feel like this is a poo post, so off i go.
i missed you all! i haven't talked to ya since last year!
