Just a quickie............

Ok first of all get your minds out of the gutter ladies. Man have we been busy at the store, the backroom sale is going well, today is the last day so come and get your goodies while you can. There are a lot more things we are working on you are going to want to keep a look out for, we are still doing the Altered Bra contest you have until after the 4th of July weekend to get those in, they are starting to come in and we are excited about it. Starting in July the Crafters Home store (that's us) are giving away a trip to Disney, is that great or what!!!!!!!!! We are also coming out with a one time limited edition die for your revolution this fall, are we a cool store or what, they will go fast. So please look for more info on these in the near future, now I need to get ready for work and the sale. One more thing and this one is a biggy we are having our annual Scrap Pink 3 day crop the first weekend in October so you can sign up for one day two or all three don't forget this is also when we do our silent auction you don't want to miss that all proceeds go to breast cancer research.

Test, test........

Ok let's try this posting thing again, I have tried posting twice since the party and blogger wouldn't let me, but I'll do that some other time right now I dn't have time. I need to let you know what is going on at the store, A LOT!!!!!!!! I really don't think Cass ever sleeps.

This weekend we are having our Backroom sales yolu don't want to miss this, there is a lot of stuff there some new some old, but all priced to go. Think of a garage sale, hey if you have Christmas projects to do this is the time to get some great bases and get started on them (hey I might have to do that myself). Another good think is if you love to alter stuff th submit or for DTs this is the place to find stuff we have stuff like chipboard books for .25 cents how can you go wrong with that.

The other thing and don't forget it's a doozy all printed paper today and tomorrow is 28% off, not even the zone beats that and you don't have to spend the gas to go out there it's win, win. The new Basic Grey is in and out on the floor and the new Yellow Bicycle both are beautiful. And don't forget to wish Mike happy birthday the sale is in honor of his birthday the 28th.

Well i guess I better get into work and price more stuff. I do want to thank all the people that have congratulated me on being on off the winners in the G45 contest, Thank you. I can't wait to see their new line.

I promise to get some pictures of the party up, it was a blast.

Until next time.

Men don't think..........

Ok let me start this post by saying I love my husband more today than I did when we started dating some 20 years ago. (wow 20 years makes me sound old). I just think that sometimes he does things before even giving it a first thought, heaven forbid actually stopping and thinking before he does something. As you know he bought a cow about a month ago, well it is time for Bessie to come to the house a month early, and she was a big cow 860 lb. hanging weight. So Jon went out and bought a freezer, once again without me, and it was delivered today and if we want to get it in the basement, well lets just say I'm NOT going to remove part of a wall. You guessed it he didn't measure anything before he bought a freezer, the thought never even crossed his mind. I must say there is never a dull moment in this house.

So proud I couldn't cry.

While everyone was crying around me as Drew grabbed that deploma, they looked at me like I was heartless because I wasn't crying, not a tear. I don't think you could wipe the smile off me face, but not one drop. I just told them I was too proud of him right now I couldn't cry, you also couldn't wipe the grin off of his face.

Here are a few pictures fro the night, I wan to post all 300+ but that won't happen, so enjoy these.

Now on a sad note it seems that our newest member to our family has died..........Bessie from a few post down is no longer with us, well I guess she will be as soon as we get a freezer, guess I need to be cleaning out the basement.

I know it has been a while and some of you have been waiting very patiently for pictures and some not so much, well here are some. They both looked wonderful, I just hope she was taped into the dress, but I don't think so, not only was it very low cut but it was also backless. :0

Now he graduates tomorrow and once again I will cry, a lot. So more pictures will be coming.

Ok so I'm a wimp, I have been lazy and haven't really done any yard work for over a year. I know I have been known as "that house" on our street. Last year we decided to do inside stuff not outside stuff, so I guess we did nothing. So yesterday I decided I didn't want to be "that house" but have had no luck with flowers the past few years due to a clay ground. So our flower beds are now rock gardens, yes I think I can grow rocks. There should be no weeds to worry about, I hope I put enough weed block down and mulch. My Japenese Maple now looks once again like a tree, no more blob that scraps along side my car as I pull into the garage, the roses have all been trimed, befroe they reached the second floor windows again, and the vegetable garden has been tilled and sodded. It got to the point were all I was growing there were weeds too. Hopefully the neighbors will start talking to me again. Right now I'm so sore from all the physical labor that I can't move, I have used muscles I didn't know I had.

What else did I do this weekend????? Went to dinner with the in-laws before they move up north. Drew has had his last day of High School, this makes me sad and proud, he is now a man.
He has graduation rehersal tomorrow morning and Prom tomorrow night, his tux came in early and was not the right size, doh!! Jon says I'm going to cry when I see him in it, he's probably right. Don't get me wrong I love the young man Drew has become but I miss the little boy that couldn'twait to get Hungery, hungery hippos for Christmas.
