It's the Little Things

It's amazing how the little things can make one happy. I found one of the orange Chibis. I think it was in one of Norma's archives where I first read the saga of the pink Chibis. Apparently they are slightly older than the green ones and could be highly sought after. Well, I'm not selling my pink one on ebay and now I have an orange one. As Cara said, size does matter and I can't wait to use these to close up my toes on the Jaywalker socks. I'm not there yet, but .... soon ... And check out this cute little rubber stamp. Can't wait to use it on some handmade cards.

Last night we watched the movie Mighty Joe Young. Sunday night is usually a relaxing night since we order dinner and watch a movie. My daughter was in my lap because we were both a little nervous about the "bad people" (poachers) and what might happen to the gorilla. At the end there is this tearjerking moment - a horiffic accident where the gorilla saves this little boy. The boy survives, but you don't know whether Joe (the gorilla) will live or die. Tears are running down my face and my daughter looks at me and says "Mommy, don't cry like a baby." I tell her that this is a sad part and I can cry if I want to. Then she looks at me with this incredulous look on her face and says "Mommy, are you really crying?". So, here is another random fact about me. Yes, I do cry very easily at sad and/or sappy parts in a movie.

I cry at sad movies, too. Tell your daughter it's nothing to be ashamed of. ;-)

I love my Chibis too! And yes, I have the pink and green ones. :)

YES! It is Klaralund. I must knit that.

But now I am obsessed with older chibi's! I must find these orange and pinkies!

My new hunt begins. THANK YOU!
