polka dots or pumps?

Because yesterday was another PJ day I made an effort today to get dressed for work at 'the office.' I am going to see if there is a difference in my productivity wearing PJs versus black slacks and a blouse. Sometimes I miss the school/work life! I've always worked and loved it, but it seems I am adjusting quite nicely to the comfy life at home. I am teaching this fun class tonight at Poppy Ink. It's a 4"X4" ribbon mini album that is super easy and would make a cute gift for Christmas. I love it because it doesn't require a lot of products-so don't toss your scraps just yet!

Kelly Waller said...

thank you so much for the peek for the class tonight, i have been stalking your blog and their mb for some kind of sneakie peekie, thanks btw- it's a super cute lil album

Amy Hummel said...

LOL Collin!!!

I have found that I am always more productive when I put shoes on. It's not really about me wearing jeans or slacks or pajamas. If I tie on a pair of sneekers, I can't sit down. I'm constantly go, go, go...

Right now I have socks on and no shoes. Which is why I'm probably sitting here typing, and not unloading the dishwasher like I should be.

Off to put on some shoes and get to work!

(cute album btw). Im currently sketching one for HOF.

Love the pajama/slipper-combo! I miss school sometimes too...I've slipped into some sort of fat-housewife-in-sweatpants limbo here.

Holly said...

You are such a talent! Seriously woman! We really need to get together sometime, especially because our hubbies share the same schedule! Love the album!

I'm more of a PJ & slippers type of girl myself but heels can be FUN too!

VERY cool album! Looks so easy & fun to do!

Samantha said...

I'll take the comfy slippers any day!! I stay at home, too, and although I do get dressed (into my sweats!), I still keep my wool slippers on all day long :) They're warm and comfy, and I need that up here in WA!

I love the ribbon book. It's very cute!!

Erin said...

Is that the thing you were making on your ping pong table when I was at your house the other day ?? It turned out way cute! I love it!

Tanya Kimball said...

So cute! What a cute idea! I am such a ribbon keeper...even if it's a couple inches! I should use them! I vote PJ's-nothing better or more comfy! I do love Collin's comment...totally something Drew would say..

Hi Elizabeth, Congrats on SOY! I'm a CK reader and was so excited for you! I love the mini album and wondered how you did it? I'm new to the online community thing and this is my first comment(Don't YOU feel special now!!!) I was wondering how you got started in the scrapbooking, designing for companies, get published, etc... Think waaaayyy back, how did ya get into it? Any advice??? Thanks and have a super terrific day!!

Liz, I love your blog. I have been reading it since you won! I am very impressed. You seem like you are very down to earth and fun. I love how you dont wait a lifetime to up-date your blog. Keep up the good work. By the way.....we all deserve a slippers and jammi day now and then!
Happy Holidays!

Thanks for the fun class Elizabeth! I didn't have my supplies ready in time, but it was fun chatting with you!

Kass Martin said...

I love it. You do great work. My mom in law is a close to my heart consultant so when I go there for Christmas I go crazy in her scrapbook world and have a blast creating new layouts. The funny thing is a have a million of them and haven't put a single picture in one of them. There's something wrong with this picture.

Mary and Ryan said...

Im with Collin on that one! Such cute little books, I wish I could come to your class.

Fuller Family said...

I am with Mary. I would love to join some of your classes. You are so talented. I am cracking up at Collin. Husband's are so funny!

Jess Perry said...

I am Collin too! They know best!! You are amazing. I would love to come to one of your classes one of these times. When and where are they?

Cassie said...

I wish I could wear polka-dot jammies and slippers to my office!

Jules said...

Hi Liz,

I was in Michaels last night killing some time before my Developmental Psych final and bought the latest CK mag. You, of course, are on the cover. What drew my eye was you fabulous shirt. Mind telling me where you got it? Anyway, checked out your blog and you're a talented artist. Good luck and Merry Christmas.

Jules

Hi Jules,
I borrowed it from my sister.
It's from Nordstrom or www.freepeople.com
