I really can't decide........

I want a pretty blog, but don't seem to find any that really fit me, so you may seem something different here each day until I find something that fits.

I don't know about you but I am on facebook and love finding old friends, people I graduated with and have known since I was a kid, it's been a hoot. They all seem to say that I haven't changed since high school If I was walking down the street they would know it was me. I think I'll let you be the judge of that.

Me about a year ago at the ripe old age of 40. I need a little makeup here.
me the day I graduated May 25th 1986 age 18, I'm with my daddy.
this is I think my Jr. year picture.

Me my senior picture I'm 17 in the picture. Maybe I should go back to wearing makeup.

So have I changed????

We've been learning!!!!!!!

Yesterday was a day of learnig for Tim and I, some important some not so much. First Tim's teachings for the day

1. If you ever rob a bank, make sure you know the layout of the city first. Yes a bank was robbed by his school and the person was NOT smart he went down towards the school which is a dead end street just past thee school at the police station. That robber was a thinker.

2. Exactly how many Seniors can you fit in a moon bounce before it gives way?????? answer apparently 30.

3. Finally if you notice some people at lunch trying to start a food fight, don't throw your luch away until the last possible second because then you are left with no ammo to throw back, becuase you know it is going to start. Thank god the ketchup and mustard cover kid wasn't wearing good clothes.

Me, well mine weren't as funny or memorable.

1. I think Tim also learned this one yesterday, don't pull out infront of someone when you have the air on inn the car. I need to remember my car is not as powerful this summer, I don't have as much get up and go as I have in the past.

2. If you are tall don't get undressed under a ceiling fan, ouch......I still have all my fingers they just are sore today and missing some skin.

Well have a nice day.

How do we accumulate so much stuff??????? I am seriously throwing crap away this time, I just have too much. Yes I am cleaning my room already today I have taken 2 bags of trash out and 2 big tubs of stuff to donate. I do not know why I bought some of the stuff, what was I thinking?! I do have 1 1/2 more closets to go thru and lets not forget the stuff piled in the center of the floor. Then when I have made room I will tackle the diningroom, yup it's as bad as my scraproom. I guess it's a good thing we put a garage sale on the calander yesterday at the store, I'm taking advantage of it this time. Well I guess it won't finish itself, I guess I better go.

Have a great day.

I want Sunshine!!!!!!

Yet again today is gloomy outside, it would be the perfect day to stay in and create but right now I don't have time for that, I need to catch up on somethings around the house. Jon told me this week that "you know you do have a family". Well I always make sure that they have food in the house, along with the other needs in life, TP, deodorant, shampoo etc. And I do alot of my work at home so I am here if they need me. I think they miss the banana bread, homemade cookies, and turkeys for dinner. You always think you'll have more time when your kids get older, but you don't. But I am one of the lucky ones I love what I do, not everyone can say they have a job they enjoy doing and makes them happy, yes it makes me crazy, but a happy crazy not carring a gun up a clock tower crazy. I love finding new thing for the store, I love trying new techniques and playing around and discovering my own. Well I think I have rambled on enough, here are some of my favorite projects, were I just got to play.

This is a mirror, with my picture on it in decal paper, and gold leafing, what fun.

Can you tell I love texture, I dangle things, love lace and trims and if it's old that's even better.
Have a great weekend.

What a week!!!!!!!

Well let's just say that I feel like I have got nothing done this week. My youngest is sick, really sick and since he is a lot like me he doesn't want to stop to go to the doctor. So yes I did get him to the doctor and he has the flu, but since then he has gotten better and worse, I hate this yo-yo ride with him, he use to do this when he was little.

I have counted thousands of beads and I mean thousands of beads for our Etsy site. So far between 50-70 thousand have been counted and packaged, all vintage made in West Germany. We have thousands more to count.

I have done one class sample this week and acrylic album from Maya Road, I learn a lot of the techniques from the DT from Maya Road too.

yes I have a few touches to add to it but, I need to match ribbon at the store.
Have a great day!

I'm how old???????

Me my mind tells me I'm 17, but man let me tel you my body these last 2 day,, these last 2 weeks it's been telling me I'm in my 60's but I'm only in my 40's. I just hurt, now I've been climbing trees since I was 2, my neighbor even cut all the lower branch off the trees because I scared him. It was nothing to climbing the shelves in the warehouse I've been in the past 2 days, all the way up to the ceiling, it's hot up there. Yup there were nails up there, shhh don't tell Cass, shee didn't like how high up I was anyways. I figure if I got cut I breathed in enough pennacillin (sp) you know mold and mildew I was covered for infection. We did find some GREAT!!!!!!!!! items for you guys, just give us a couple of days to get it priced and gone thru on the shelves at the store and on-line at etsy.

If you want to learn how to use some of the stuff, you might want to check out Lisa Pace's blog she shows all kinds of stuff, and loves our stuff. She's such a sweet heart, I had the pleasure of working with her at the Maya Road both at CHA and we both love the same stuff, too bad we are so far apart.

Well I'm going to finish my drink and I think maybe go to bed, my body says it's time for sleep, and maybe some drugs.

Have a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day.
