PTI Challenge

I made this card for the PTI itty bitty dot challenge. I love their paper and paired their Raspberry Fizz with Basic Black. The dress is from Amuse Artstamps which was paper pieced with a design from the Raspberry Fizz Mix collection. I made the hanger out of wire. Enjoy!

This was the view from our treehouse. We were surrounded by redwoods
Just a snapshot from Napa, our first day in the valley. Cakebread was our first stop. Why can't we retire and buy a vineyard and be surrounded by this lovely scenery everyday?

Weddings and Such

Wow, it's hard to believe that October is flying by and soon we'll be in the midst of the holiday season. We've had a super busy month at work, last night we had an event for the Chicago Film Festival, Sydney Portier was the honoree. It's rare that we work on a Saturday. Dylan and I are headed to California on Tuesday. We're going to Napa and San Francisco for the week. I've been trying to pack all day, but keep getting tired so have to take naps in between. It's really hard to pack highs in the 80's lows in the 40's. I feel like I have to bring my entire wardrobe. I haven't even picked out shoes to bring yet. Just had to turn off the Red Sox game, too sad, although they made a great push at the end to make it to game 7. Last weekend we were in Michigan for Jay and Laura's wedding. I had a really fun time with E's camera, it's fancy. Karen and I caught 2 real live wedding crashers on film. Have you ever crashed a wedding? I don't think I could. But this chick walked right up to the bar and ordered 3 drinks, took them to her friends and they all walked out. We stopped by a cider mill on the way home. Yummy.

When I woke up this morning, there was a bit of cold in the air, I'm all jammied up in my sweats and fleece. In regards to our home, we are still waiting to be seen by an insurance adjuster, all of them seem to be busy with other people who have issues. However, we do have a roofer in place, a handyguy in place, and are getting one more quote for a mason guy. So, maybe by January we will be put back together again. Headed to Napa in a few weeks, looking forward to drinking wine and eating oysters. It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is around the corner. Last year we started a tradition of having a nontraditional dinner, this year we are having it at Emon's house. He wants to have turducken, do you know of this? It's a duck stuffed inside of a turkey. I told him I would try it, but I'm not happy about it. Maybe I'll just eat dessert, that's not traditional at all. I've already got a head start on my Christmas shopping, it's less than 3 months away. Wanna here me sing? Red Sox made the playoffs, I think it's great! I'm looking forward to the vice presidential debate on Thursday. Dylan and I were watching Lou Dobbs tonight and heard one of the funniest lines we've heard in awhile. They were speaking in terms of Sarah Palin and her abilty to see Russia from where she lives and how that is considered her foreign policy experience. One of the men Lou Dobbs was interviewing said "just because I can see the moon from my window, doesn't make me an astronaut". The best part was Lou Dobbs actually started clapping. Hilarious.
