Just a quick post tonight. I received this e-mail last week:

One day after I received my designer's copy of the book. I think the general consensus of all of us who contributed to this books is "WOW!" It really is an incredible book...full of fun ideas. If you want to check it out, there's a little sneak peek up on the Paper Crafts website -- click HERE. I've never seen a book put together quite like this one before -- it's really unique and has several pages that flip out to show extra ideas. It's a real book (hard cover and all), not just a magazine-style idea book. I love it -- hope you have a chance to check it out!

In other news, I borrowed this book from the library last week. I'd heard it was good, and Meagan told me her teacher was reading it at school (not to the herself when they had their reading time). So I got on the "wait list" at the local library and picked it up on Friday. I read a couple of pages Saturday...enough to know I liked the author's writing style...and then a little bit on Sunday afternoon. Then, last night I had a terrible sore throat and couldn't go to sleep, so I picked it up and started reading again. It was all over tat that point and at about 4:30 am this morning, I finished the book and went to sleep for a couple of hours. I was totally engrossed and could NOT put it down. Loved it. It's definitely not the type of book I would normally read...but I'm so glad I did! Now I can't wait to read the sequel -- I'm on the waiting list again, but there are 3 people ahead of me, so it looks like it will be a while. Oh well, maybe by the time I get it I'll be caught up on my sleep from reading the first one.

Zachary's 15 month well-child check was this morning. He's a tall, slender type of kiddo...24 lb.s (40%), 33 inches (95%). He had to have his immunizations today. AND we found out that he has a sinus infection - which I think he's had for some time now. We took him in about 3 weeks ago and the Dr. thought he had pneumonia (did I spell that right?), but we were able to control his breathing/wheezing with the nebulizer, so she decided it wasn't pneumonia...then he had a terrible couple of weeks with throwing up and rashes, and needless to say none of us have gotten a lot of sleep for the last few weeks. Hopefully the antibiotic will kick in quickly and he'll feel better and we'll all feel better!!


  1. Yeah!!! A new Twilighter. Welcome to the club! Did you know they are making a movie of it? Oh, and you can borrow my sequel if you are ever in Salt Lake I would love to bring it to you.

    P.S. I heart Edward Cullen.

  2. Hope you are having a great week and I hope your little guy starts to feel better!

  3. Wendy...

  4. So happy to have had the opportunity to work with you on this book---what an honor for little old me! Maybe, just maybe---I'll get the chance to work with you again---LOVE your creations!

  5. Hey Wendy,
    Soren just had his dr. appt yesterday (4/30) and he is also 24 lbs (40%) but he is two inches shorter than Zach and he's still on the tall side, so Zach must really be off the charts tall. Can you believe how fast they grow? I keep wondering where my baby went. Have a good one.

  6. You are the third person to give that book a good review, so I'm going to have to read it. It's hard to find good books with that kind of theme :)
