Monkeys on the brain!!

I've been doing a little "wink, wink" project tonight that has to do with monkeys and a whole lot of them. They are really cute and I just love to stamp with them!!

Here is a random thought I have. Do you keep crayons that are broke in half and little nubs?? I was just cleaning out my kids crayon/marker drawer and I noticed a bunch of really old crayons that were only like 1 inch long and that didn't even have the wrapper anymore. You know what?? I just tossed them!! I'm sure that it is very wasteful but I also got a bunch of packs for .10 after school started. I don't think I could ever work with a broken crayon. It's like when I hear of someone breaking up their Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I just cringe. It would take all my creativity away from me.

Today when I was at Target I saw sets of Cabbage Patch Kids Newborn baby clothes for $12 a set. I almost grabbed two of them but my girls were with me. Then later when I was at the Dollar Tree they had Newborn baby clothes for $1 each!! I'm sure they won't last as long but I was able to get 3x's as many as I would have at Target. I also got little fleece receiving blankets for each of my kids. Here is what we are doing when we have the baby...... I got each of my kids (even the boys) a newborn baby Cabbage Patch Kid boy. They were tough to find but I got all 4 of them!! I am going to bring them to the hospital with me when I go for my C-section and then when the kids come to visit me and the baby later that day they will all be given their very own newborn baby along with a diaper bag. In the diaper bag I am going to put in these little outfits, some premie baby diapers, the receiving blanket and just some little knick-knack things for babies. I hope this will help them with the transition and just have fun with it. I'm really excited about it!!

Good night everyone!
