tying up loose ends.



just wanted to check in to say i'm checking out for awhile. the planner is crammed full. like yours, i'm sure. squeezed tight with tiny writing of fun outings mingled with responsibilities; design deadlines, party plans, out of town visitors, a big bike race, a mini jaunt to the lake and then some. i'm excited to have a few arts + crafts projects under my belt. am wrapping up my latest project (i promise i'll do a big unveil in september) and am shipping off mini diaries left and right. thank you for your ongoing awesomeness + support.

the good news is, you won't even know i'm gone. i'll still be here in spirit, as the guest post how-to series will keep martawrites afloat. and please tune in next monday, i'll need your vote + ideas about something.

p.s. yes, i'm still interested in your how-to submissions. come autumn, i'll feature a guest post once a week, for as long as the creative ideas keep coming in. please email me your fall, winter and holiday how-to's. spots are filling fast.

p.p.s. off the topic, has anyone seen eat, pray, love yet? and what about inception? i'm dying to see a good flick in the theater and wonder which one we should splurge on.

I just saw Eat, Pray, Love this weekend with a friend and while I LOVED it and found it so inspiring, my friend thought it was so-so. I think the difference is that I had already read the book and she hadn't. If you've read the book, I definitely recommend seeing it!

P.S. I was wondering if you were going to be doing your monthly calendar downloads again?

eat pray love...it was a good movie but by far a greater book.

inception: I can get bored in movies because most are predictable. However, in Inception, I had to sit back close to the start of the film and thought, "I LOVE this film." (because I couldn't predict it and had to go with the flow of it)..but it's got a lot to pay attention to and much action.

eat love pray: I am a Reader! but I could not make it through the book (may give it a second chance now though). I saw the film on Saturday and loved it. I did not want it to end. I wanted to keep following her on her travels and meet the people she met and see more of the world and see what else she learned about herself and others. I really didn't want it to end.

either movie is a win-win situation, I think..it's just what you'll be in the mood for at the time.

Krista said...

you gotta see incption. i went to a late night showing not very enthused, b/c i am known to get grumpy and hate every movie after 10pm. but this was an exception. i LOVED it! so good. it's one that you keep talking about afterwards too.

See Inception. It'll make you think and make you believe in your heart of hearts that Leo should win an Oscar.

It's so funny Marta, yesterday I was in the same conundrum! We mom's only get so much time without the babes so I didn't know whether to go with Julia or Leo. I decided to go with Inception and I'm so glad that I did. It had me on the edhge of my seat the entire film and it was such an amazing concept that my friend and I would look over to each other and whisper "this is so cool" and were still talking about the twists on the way home. I love when that happens. Although I love Miss Julia I was too nervous about the film not being as good as the book. We all know how that goes. I loved that the book made her experience accesible to everyone while Julia Roberts is just so Hollywood. Have fun on your break and enjoy your momma time!

Just saw Inception last night. The soundtrack is amazing (the music at times gave me goosebumps!) and it is so beautifully shot. On top of that, the plot is complex and detailed, and the acting is good. The action sequences are amazing, leaving you to wonder how did they do that? However, while I love all those actors, I just saw the girl who played Juno as Juno .... just in Inception. even though she did a fine job. perhaps she needed a different haircut to make me think she was a different person? Anyway, I recommend to see it on the big screen for a big impact.

Haven't seen EPL yet, but read the book a few years ago. LOVED the book (have you read it?) so worry about the film ruining it for me - Julia Roberts can get on my nerves sometimes, while other times I adore her. ;) I will probably wait to see this at home. happy movie watching!

I saw Eat, Pray, Love on Friday and I loved it. I am only about half way through the book, but the movie was an amazing mix of scenery and sounds from the countries she visited!

whitney said...

um... inception. hands down. go. now. :)

Janelle said...

Definitely Inception! It'll keep you thinking for hours...no, days afterward. In terms of longevity, it's the biggest bang for your buck.

Dawn M said...

Have to agree...Inception hands down! Not many movies are able to keep me guessing and this one sure did! And the ending? PERFECT! And I am not usually one to like those kinds of endings, lol.

Danielle said...

Inception! The plot, acting, effects were all amazing. Just a phenomenal movie among the typical summer "block busters".

I saw Eat, Pray, Love over the weekend and liked it (I haven't read the book). I haven't seen Inception but I hear it's a good one to watch in the theater whereas you could rent EPL and watch it and home, and still get as much out of it.

Melissa Allam said...

I say Inception, definately. Your husband will love it. I saw both and Inception still has me thinking. Eat, Pray, Love was okay, but I seek after the God of the bible for answers in life and I kept wanting to tell her she was looking in all the wrong places.

Didn't see Inception, but did see Eat, Pray, Love last night with a group of friends. Mixed feelings about it, but overall a good movie to see. If you really can't decide, see both ;-) Enjoy!

amy said...

marta i'm glad you're getting time off! you sound super busy still. how do you do it all?

caitlin said...

I have seen both, and believe me Inception is the pick. I liked EPL, but it pales in comparison to Inception.

How fun that you went Huckleberry-ing. That's a fave in Idaho and my husbands family. I myself have never done it. But I have had my fair share of Huckleberry shakes, honey, and lemonade. Yum!
