Call me Super Mom... or Sleepless in Germany

Darn Jetlag. It is almost 1am here and I am wide awake. Exhausted, but wide awake. And I have to be up in a mere 5 hours. Yeah, that anticipation is making me just more awake. Go figure.

But, with me being awake.... I got the invites for Trouble #2's birthday party done. I didn't get them done in time for an actual Halloween Party (so I guess I am not quite Super Mom material). The party is actually going to two days after, but I am thinking a bunch of German first graders are not going to care about the actual date but appreciate the additional chance to dress up. Now I just have to come up with a spooky menu and enough entertainment to keep them occupied for 4 hours.

Invites: I dug into my new stuff. And some old stuff. And did some stamping. And some glittering. And layering. And yeah, like that same bunch of first graders is going to care, but hey.... maybe the mom's are going to be impressed? Ehhhh... never mind.

Products used: CS Stampin Up and Bazzill, Tag Stampin Up, Stamp Stampin Up, Ribbon Martha Stewart, Spider "do it yourself" glitter sticker and glitter Martha Stewart, Ranger Stickles, VersaColor Ink. I am totally loving those glitter stickers. There are a bazillion of them in the package.... like I need that many glittering spiders, but you never know. Spiders might be the next owls.

Well, Trouble #1 is dealing with jet lag, too. She just woke up and refuses to go back to sleep. I better figure out a way to get her back to sleep.

Have a good one.
