May Happenings

This is my latest FUN projet, I cut out all the specail shapes with my ART PHILOSOPHY cricut cartridge. This cartridge is amazing and if you dont have it you MUST get it, you wont be disappointed.
I drove to Pasadena and waited in line for a hour to see this amazingly sweet women who makes my meals supergrajafagilistic expealidodious ( who knows if thats spelled right) BUT anywho when I arrived the line was already wrapped around the building, and as I passed the the end of the line I noticed that the end was group G. I went inside to pick up my letter G that I needed to have to wait in line. There were two people ahead of me one was being helped already. A clerk approached to help the second lady in line and then someone approached and asked me how she could help me and when I told her was there to pick up a letter for the book signing she said "OH well heres a letter B someone just turned it in" The lady ahead of me couldnt believe it and asked if she could trade her G for a B. Without that letter B I would have waited for over 2 hours.
I was talking during my picture op and I look really funny :(
This was my mothers day present from my Hubby, he knew it was #1 on my wish list. This is such a COOL gadget! My sweet sons bought me flowers, my favorite chocolate turtles from See's candy and 2 really special cards! They do love me LOL
I am officially on vacation tomorrow at 2:30 PM for a whole month!!! WOOHOO Thanks for stopping by!

Wednesday happenings

Tomorrow I am going to a book signing for the Pioneer Women . Her new cook book is out and I cant wait to get started on making some of the recipes. I have yet to make something of hers that I dont like! I am so excited !!!! I have never attended a booking signing before. And SUPER happy that its wednesday ONLY 2 more days till Friday! Heres a little card I made for my Humbled Artist swap back in October. I really dont like to emboss, it takes to much work (I know, it really doesn't)But I rarely do it because I am just to lazy to go through the steps. BUT I sure do like the effect on the kiddos! I was inspired by Debbi Carriere. She is one talented stamper that I had the pleasure of swapping with for several months!

Sketch It Out

Nothing new in my world, life is still amazing BUT busy. My son celebrated his 18th birthday last month, my baby is 18. If I close my eyes I can imagine a little boy sitting on my lap cuddling. I wont get mushy. We had dinner and 2 games of bowling my husband won both games and he wont be quiet about it. He keeps asking if we want his autograph, he also claims he going on the bowling circut. Were definately going for a rematch.

I celebrated my Great Aunts 80th birthday this past saturday. Is that awesome or what, lots of family, seeing old friends I havent seen in 20 years or more. Funny, funny stories told, facts about my aunts life that we never knew. Her kids were hearing things they never knew. dinner, cake and dancing, Fun was had by all!!

This is what I am teaching at Michaels this week. Are those papers yummy or what? The colors OH MY!!

10 YEARS, 10 YEARS, OH MY!!!

10 years this month , thats how long I have been a Close to my Heart consultant. I still enjoy what I do, its so rewarding. I have met the most awesome ladies that I now call my friends. I can not imagine not having CTMH in my life!!

I know that I have been slow to post but its hard to get back in the groove of posting on my regular 3-4 days a week thing. I am really going to make a effort. I hope my followers havent given up on me completely. I know how it is to check a blog regularly and nothing new is up, you give up and stop coming by. I hope that your still around and understand.

Todays card says it all....

This is the state of my room, its been this way for a couple of months. I cleaned it and it went right back to this, this is probably why I have not stamped or posted much. Theres stuff piled in almost every corner, this is not movtivating at all. I have taken on alot this fall and I have to organize my schedule and time to create and do what I ENJOY.

There are ALOT of new stamps on this desk waiting to be inked, some Unity,Ooberly cute Halloween dollar stamps, and 2 Inkadinkado stamps!

Until next time my friends
