Paper Hearts and a Pretty Girl

Work has been stressing me out.

Today I decided that I needed to take a little break from
totally mind-numbing and meaningless crap
webinar e-commerce set-up and cash and carry sales reports.

One of the best ways for me to de-stress is to do something creative.

I left a web page open on my computer for days
(my I'm too busy to be smart version of bookmarking)
with a tutorial on crafting paper heart Christmas baskets.

I finally worked on some of them today.

They were totally easy and fun.
I will be filling them with little goodies
and bringing them to a Christmas Eve party
that I am attending with my family.

Want to make some of your own?
Here is the tutorial:

I think they are so darn cute.

Here is something, or someone I also think is cute.

Spending some time just sitting and loving her today,
quietly, during James' nap, with no work calls,
no television on, and no thoughts of my job
creeping in to my mind was just

w o n d e r f u l.
