Paper Withdrawal, But Sewing and On to Cookies!!

I've gotten to where I enjoy stamping and card making so much I almost had withdrawals this week, but happily I was kept busy with my other passion...sewing. Had a Halloween party to go to last night so spent the past week making the Raggedy Ann and Andy costumes for my boyfriend and myself. Here's part of our group that went to the party too. Just a bunch of big kids, aren't we? Funny...no one could solve that Rubik's cube! :) I felt like a walking mattress with all that fabric in the dress and pinafore. My BF and I got lots of funny looks and laughs on the way to our friends' house; could tell some of the grown men felt funny waving to a big rag doll. haha. We had a good time and we're already throwing around ideas for our costumes for next year. :)
During the week I still did some blog hopping, which further added to my paper craving. On Tammy Hershberger's blog yesterday she was talking about Operation Baking GALS (Give A Little Support). Such a great idea and what a way to show our support and love for our troops overseas and give them some cards to send to loved ones at the same time. I followed the links and joined up right away. Will get a friend over here this weekend for some fun and baking and get our package ready to send. For more info and/or to sign up to join the team go to Erika Martin's blog.
