Yesterday, Jill and I had our first Creative Friday since she started her new job. Needless to say, it was highly anticipated.
She also brought me two new kinds of good mail labels and a new good mail address list. Giddy.
I got some Christmas Cadbury chocolates and we broke them out, the first ones of the season. Nobody appreciates these like Jill.
She got all caught up on her birthday good mail and good mail giveaway winners!
Lucas was thrilled to get to play with Landon, but Eva and Max were a little adrift. Fortunately, Marc was home from work and he helped out greatly. He took Eva out to lunch and to Borders, then he took Max to a movie and Eva had a friend over.
Jill stayed from 11:30 - 6:30, so we had a lot of good catching up/creating time!
Jill brought some of her mom's caramel popcorn (made from hull-less popcorn, have you ever heard of such a thing?) and I got out some of the leftover rolls from Thanksgiving.
I was filling some tag orders and having hole punch difficulties. The first one I used was too tiny to get the string through, so I had to re-punch them with a bigger one that ended up looking rather too big. But the punched out holes were intriguing: they reminded me of olives, but Jill thought they looked like eyeballs.
When we start wrapping things up, we usually stuff all of our trimmings and trash into the empty Sonic cups. I don't think I've ever documented that before.
Jill's output for the day – seriously productive! We made a mail run and then came back and worked a little more. It was such a good (and needed) day.
