Friday Five

This is what I woke up to this morning:
Makes me want to stay in, craft all day. Unfortunately, I do need to go into work for a bit & set up some experiments... I should be able to spend the afternoon at my desk though. My craft show is rapidly approaching; I've been trying hard to get my butt in gear. Here's what I was up to this week:
  1. Monday I was good about writing for NaNoWriMo... but the last 3 days I haven't written more than a dozen words. I've fallen way behind. Damn. I'm going to try to devote some time today to writing. Although not as important as preparing for my craft show, I would still like to be able to say I won NaNo.
  2. So what have I done to prepare for my craft show? I've stitched together some mini notebook sets & cut out lots of holiday tags: Yesterday I stitched together some tissue cozies: I also cut out some more wine & tissue cozies: I want these sewn goods to be well stocked for my show.
  3. I also worked on finishing up these custom notebooks (that have taken me too long already). I bound one: I also cut into the fabric & covered the book board for this one (I'm always reluctant / nervous when gluing down such pretty fabric - but then always so pleased with how it turned out): Now I just need to get to sewing up the other small one & making a trip to Michael's to purchase some eyelets to be able to complete the larger two.
  4. Right after finishing up TAing lab on Wednesday, my cell phone rang, which is rare. I answered, wary. "Hello?" "Finally!" I didn't recognize the voice that was exasperated with me. I think I said something eloquent, like "Huh?" trying to figure out what was going on. Was it a wrong number or was something really wrong? "Jaden has been trying to call you all night!" Oooooooooh! Realization dawns. It's my brother, Matt - his daughter's birthday was Wednesday. She was calling to thank me for the gift I sent. I had a sweet conversation with her in the hall outside the lab room. Made this Auntie smile.
  5. I listed some more holiday mini notebook sets:
