Secret Buddy Goodness

I'm not sure if I have posted about this before, but I belong to a Secret Buddy Gift Exchange through my October Yahoo group. Basically every month I send out a gift for baby to my secret buddy, and I receive one from whoever has me. It is so much fun. I had an awesome family sending to me for a whole year, but they chose not to continue so now I have another equally awesome buddy that sending me gifts. I don't post pictures of the gifts I purchase and send because I don't know if my buddy reads my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise(both of the gift and who I am) Every month there is a theme. This month's theme was "Something for the parents". My secret buddy obviously reads my blog because she chose things that I LOVE(as she always does!). So this month I received a scrapbook kit(from one of my favorite designer's-Daisy D), a cardmaking magazine, some bubble bath and soap. She also included a picture frame for my husband to put a picture of Sophie in when she comes. How sweet! I only sent something for one half of the couple of my secret buddy this month. Oops! Anyway, secret buddy, wherever you are, thank you so much for brightening my day each and every month with your thoughtful gifts. I love them all.

Today I didn't leave the house at all. I spent the day cleaning again. I'm starting to make a dent
in some of the piles and boxes that have been laying around/accumulating since Christmas(and before). My craft area is completely clean. Maybe now I can get motivated to start scrapping again. I am way behind.

I got out my Cricut machine and have it all set up so now when I want to use it all I have to do is sit at my craft table and turn it on. It is such a cool machine and they have come out with some really neat cartridges lately. I'm thinking I may need to have at least one of the new Disney cartridges. Some day. I'm watching the Oscar's right now and fast forwarding through the commercials. What did we do before DVR's?

I've never heard of a cricut machine before. You are a high tech gal! Have fun getting back to your scrap booking :)

I have done some big time cleaning too! My basement is getting there. I am going to a scrap weekend in March and I can hardly wait.

I just got a Cricut machine last week and I love it. Right now it is sitting on my dining room table because I have no idea where I am going to keep it. Have fun scrapbooking.

I am so grateful to whoever came up with the idea for secret buddy's. I REALLY enjoy it. Looks like you have a great one.
