Did I mention that my 4 year old is getting glasses?? She apparently can not see far away AT ALL!! How could I not know this?? I took her to the eye doctor not so much for her eye sight but because she has a "wandering" eye or rather two wandering eyes. (Exotropia) And one of the main reasons this happens (apparently) is when the child has very poor eye sight. The eyes get bored with nothing to focus on and wander outward.
So she is getting glasses. Do you remember me mentioning she is 4? I asked the doctor how I was going to keep them on her and the doctor said that I probably won't be able to get her to take them off because right now her world is very small. Once she puts on these glasses her world will open up. However I did order her the special plastic glasses with a strap to hold them on!! LOL
Here is a couple photos of her trying on the new frames. (they still need her lenses put in)
I think they are going to be cute on her but I am biased!! lol I don't know if you can see it in the photo but she fell that morning as she was running to get on the bus (with me yelling, "don't run, don't run...") and slammed her nose into the ground. She has a weird vertical bruise on her nose.
She seems excited to get glasses. Maybe because 4 of us in the family wear them and she feels a bit left out. She is always taking off my glasses and putting them on herself. I will let you know how it turns out.
I finally have something to post!! I worked on two DT projects this weekend but they don't post until later this week so I couldn't share them yet. I have a new Stash challenge going on at Sketches4all
. The challenge is to share either the cover or a page from your Smash book type journal. I don't have a Smash brand book. I just bought a journal from Target and finally got inspiration to decorate the cover.
I plan to use my journal to glue and jot down inspirational things like photos, sayings, colors, projects etc. I decided on the perfect title and it set off my creative juices!! ha I used some G45 -Botanicabella papers. I even fussy cut out some butterflies to add. I stamped out a cool new soon to be released Stamp It Stamp - Compass
and then I added distress inks to "age" the paper. I punched out the paper border strip with my Martha Stewart border punch. And finished up with a few brads, some stickles and alpha stickers that spell out my title. Be Inspired, Be Inspiring. (love that!!)
If you are into Smash booking right now, I would love it if you came over to S4A and joined in my challenge
. I would enjoy seeing your projects!! There will be a RAK for the winner.
I'm completely surprised that only 5 (!)
people tried to win the free stamps sets I gave away last week. GASP! I would actually like to give away a couple more stamps sets.(I have a Humphrey and some SWALK) If there is any interest please leave me a comment. I would like to give these stamp sets to folks from the US who might be interested in using their new stamp set to join in a challenge at Crafter's Companion USA Challenge blog
. (and don't worry my dear sweet international followers...I am gathering up some goodies for another giveaway which will include YOU TOO!!)
Isn't it cute!!! You know you want to try to win so go on over there

That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog today.
