Quick Reminder

Those of you who got in on pre-orders last month, they are coming in today! I want to get these right out to you as soon as humanly possible, so please get those balance invoices paid. If they are paid by 10am tomorrow, they will go out in tomorrow's afternoon mail. WooHoo! I also over ordered pretty seriously this time, so I'm hoping to be able to fill some of the last batch of pre-orders this week as well.

I need to get as much of this done this week as I can why? Because this is the last official week of summer vacation! Kyle goes back to work a week from today, leaving me home alone with the wee beast until he starts school on the 20th. Since that is going to be our last week together before the big Kindergarten leap I am going to try to work as little as possible while he is awake and spend some good, fun mama/son time with him. Kyle has the same idea this week and is planning some big adventures-BOYS ONLY.

In other news, I splurged this (tax free back to school) weekend and took Crankypants HQ wireless. I bought my first ever very own laptop. This means I will no longer have to wade through billions of Hot Wheels links, LEGO pictures and geeky video game cheat codes to find my work stuff. I spent the morning putting the wait list into easily update-able spread sheets, bringing over my bookmarks and syncing email accounts (okay, Kyle did that last one). Now I am obsessed with finding the perfect laptop sleeve for my little darling. I found a pretty cool one made out of recycled seat belts on Etsy, but I don't know. I haven't found any that have screamed my name so far. Any recs?

While waiting for my customs list to get their orders in and the Classic Crankys t land on my door step I made my first pair of longies for Venus Vanguard's Grand Re-Opening happening at the end of this month after a long summer break. I'll have a sneaky peek for you soon. Think soft and girly. Now I need to dream up something for the boys...

The gnome messenger bag you were after is also a laptop sleeve. The pattern is for sale at http://hyenacart.com/PatchyPants/index.php?p=54024, so you could even make one for your laptop with the fabric of your choosing.

No laptop sleeve in the pattern. I went to make it today and it wasn't included :(
