I have to say.....Miss Olivia is a very bright little girl (and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mommy. LOL) She has always been an unbelievable talker, and she remembers EVERYTHING she sees or hears. At just barely 3, she knows most of her letters (names, sounds, and how to write them), all of her numbers to 15 (she can count to twenty but only recognizes up to 15), and has a very active imagination. She is a budding artist and loves anything to do with painting, coloring, drawing, sculpting (play-doh LOL), etc...Where she falls short is in her social relations. She is VERY outgoing and interactive around adults and older children...but as soon as someone her own age appears, she clams up and doesn't even resemble her normal spunky self. So I decided that it would be good for her to go to preschool! I couldn't care less about the learning aspect (although that would be nice)...all I'm interested in is getting her to break out of her shell. I don't mind at all if she is "shy" naturally...HECK- I used to be a TON more introverted than I am now. :) I just don't want her fear of other toddlers to continue to plague her just because she has been sheltered by her dad and I. So her first day of preschool is TOMORROW! YIKES! We'll see how it goes. Hopefully she doesn't go off by herself and stand in the corner to observe the whole time.
What else is new?..... I stayed up WAAAAyyyyyyY too late last night finishing a new layout. I think my creativity peaks around 10:30 or 11:00. I always get a burst of energy about that time every night. Which isn't bad except that my computer is SOOOOOO slow....so I end up staying up until 2 am doing what should only take me an hour. I type a command and sit there for-e-ver waiting for the stupid computer to stop "thinking" about it and actually do something. So here's my masterpiece hahahaha:

I'm loving using tons of embellishments lately! Kind of reminds me of that whole "junk to jewels" thing. Not that the embellishments alone are "junk", in the least....I just think that when you combine them it gives that junky/artsy feel. And I LOVE anything that has to do with sewing--buttons, ribbons, flowers. Which reminds me....
I really need to post some of my OliveJuice and Company designs on here. (Especially since that is the name of this crazy bloggie-poo.) Not that anyone even cares about the schtuff I do, but it would be fun to get some feedback. I guess I should probably explain a little bit.....but that will have to wait until next time. This post is already super-duper long.
