my sister from another mister : kelly early
well, to talk about my dear friend kelly, would require thousands of pages, hours, months...shots of vanilla vodka.
kelly sent us a ginormous box, very cute box (piperlime.com), filled very neatly with 3 baby bags of baby gifts! clothes..cute clothes for vanya...trinkets..very well thought out ones...sunglasses (hello, we're edging into 24hr. sunlight time soon), butt creme (says it all), hand rattlers (no, not baby snakes) that are so perfect and actually something we saw at the baby store and thought we shd get after swindubaby is a little older, baby laughs-a book about the 1st year by jenny mcarthy, baby einstein tunes, diapers (practcal and a brand that we use) and the most await 'haute burp cloths' designed and made exclusively by kelly..she is a master at sewing and creating amazing things. jamison, her daughter is a lucky girl as her mom is such a talented seemstress.
kelly and i should have met at the 'surprise girls scout pancake breakfast' in mission viejo around maybe 1981? she lived a few streets away from me growing up..we never met in mission viejo. then we both ended up going to design school in arizona..me in tempe at ASU and her in flagstaff at NAU...but we never met there. then we both returned home to the OC and decided to join a nat'l design group called AIGA...which is where we finally met and realised we both laughed at our own jokes..and were pretty damn funny. we keep tossing around the idea of going on tour - mahogany & ivory..it could happen. anyway...if you've ever spent time with both of us in the same room, you'd be laughing..cause well..you just would. and kelly is beyond talented as a designer and has a full fledged freelance career creating fabulous solutions for graphically challenged clients :)
thank u kelly for your creative and very nice gifts! and your mom too! man..im spoiled and lucky to have friends and their moms sending swindu baby loving gifts :) claudia...you are too kind..thank you!!!
oh and these gifts are coming in handy while im sitting in the room pumping away..like the swindu dairy factory i've become :)
