Months and Migraines....

Good Evening everybody!

Well, it's Sunday again......geesh, time just flies by. The months come and go so fast. Wouldn't it figure that now I am feeling 150% that weekend time is over. ha! Friday was horrible....which actually started on Thursday. I started to have a headache. No, not that simple. It was not a simple headache. There is a difference and I can tell when it's gonna last. So, Thursday I popped some tylenol cause I figured it'd be hurting more and sure enough come Friday I was in pain. I should have called in, but I had so much going on that I went in and was dying by 9. UGH! Needless to say, I came home and stayed inside til Satruday around 3 I started to feel like I could move and do. I popped extra strength and moved around. The pain came and went, but it just hurts so bad that once or twice I have wanted to just die. I didn't think a migraine could be so horrible. So, come the evening on Saturday, I got my butt in gear and whipped out some cards for The Stamps of Life set that I received in January. I love Stephanie's stamps. They are well thought out and cheap! I have never heard of anyone charging $1 shipping. ( I loooooove that )  Anyhow, I have a busy work week coming up so here's my latest creations! Enjoy and come back......

Baby Showering.......

I work at a Middle School and we have pregnant teachers galore. heehee. Tomorrow, or shall I say in a few hours, we'll host a baby shower. I volunteered to make the cakes. One for each parent, so 3 cakes. I wanted to make the onesie cake.....A simple thought, right? But of course not! All was well. My cake was super soft and yummy. I was able to cut it in the needed shape, still no problem....Then I go to put the icing and oh but no! It wanted to fall apart so in effort to save the cake I resorted to fondant. I've had this box of RTU fondant and it was not too bad. That is considering I had never used it before. I took pics, but my onesie is much cuter in good lighting. ;) so here they are....

Monday blues....

I should so be in bed and asleep,but I'm not. I have missed some blog days so here is a catch up.

The weekend was good. We cleaned and hung out. I got hubs to put new garage door framing. You know the ones you see that have the bottoms missing or all nasty and falling apart. ( looks like this....)

yep. got it all pretty now. I just have to have decent weather and paint to finish it up. ;) so happy. It was an eye sore even though it wasn't as bad as the picture above. That was the first of many projects. Of course that was a $15 fix and then.....our disposal goes ka-plunk! I think that just figures. One thing fixed so naturally one thing breaks? Darn the luck.

On to the Monday I've had. My honey left for training and I end up with the baby of the family spiking a fever. Needless to say I stayed home with her only to find myself doing laundry, tending to her and checking on her which left little time for anything else. I am almost done with laundry finally. She perked up around 2:30 and then began to heat back up around 5..poor thing.  :(

I managed to make a card last night for HeroArts Inspiration , but come to find out my pearls came off the body and one pearl came off the die cut, but I'll fix that tomorrow. Here is the card I came up with, but I didn't use a Hero Art stamp so I didn't bother to post it. ( I know, real smart) heehee.

O.k off to bed ....

We have a WINNER!

Today turned out to be cold in the afternoon. I don't like cold weather. When it's cold, I like to stay in my pj's(that don't ever seem to match) , not comb my hair or do anything. It's in the low 30's right now and in South Texas.....that's freezing! (LOL)

However, all that doesn't matter cause at 6 this a.m I started receiving numerous messages on flickr for my winning on Hero Arts monthly card contest! YES, you heard me..Out of all the entries ( and there were a gazillion) I was one of 5! yippee! Can you say " made my day!". I was so excited I just stuck my iphone in Young's face and asked if he was up. All cross eyed he peeked and said congrats. I suppose I should have let him wake up, but I was so excited and who else was I gonna tell so early in the a.m? So, after the blinding session I gave him in the a.m, he did manage to e-mail me a "congratulations, but if you ever put that phone in my face at the crack of dawn.....I'm gonna push you off the bed." Ha! gotta love him. I suppose thinking of it now, that was kinda mean of me huh? lololololololol.....

I am now off to pick out my stamps and then shower n sleep! I am so excited. Thank you to alllllllllllllllll of you sweet stampers on Hero Arts that left me messages. You are a wonderful group and the messages made my day! Isn't it sweet how simple little notes from strangers who share your hobbies just make my day? I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Well, If you didn't see my entry......HERE it is as a winner! I love you Hero Arts!

Happy playin' and stay warm~

Drowning in rain.....

Hello everybody! Welcome to my little blog....

It's Sunday and I finally got out of the house today. Went with my girlfriends, Melissa,Veronica & Suzanne, to see Country Strong! (finally) It was really good and sad. I love Gwenyth Paltrow! (Tim was great too)
It's been raining for 3 days now and we've done nothing but sit inside and watch movies. I made 2 cards which I'll post later tonight or tomorrow. They came out pretty. ;) It's amazing how weather can make me so sleepy and just about worthless. It wasn't just me either......the kids and my honey were just as lazy. (or were they following suit?) Who knows,but it was nice. I NEVER sit and do nothing.                                      

For my B I G news now............I have recently become a Thirty-One consultant! What is that you ask? oh , it's just fabulous stuff. I'm booking parties, so if you would love to earn free and cheap hostess goodies/rewards contact me to book your online party! I guarantee you will LOVE the products just as I do. We ship wherever you are. So, please check out my site and enjoy yourself and shop a little.  I've got to go take pics of my cards to post now.                                                    
Till tomorrow,

Baby it's cold outside!

It's cold...super cold! (We are not used to that here in South Texas)  ;O
I started dozing off again on the sofa today...Not sure why. Maybe because I stayed up again til about 2 ish? heehee. It's supposed to get colder tonight and I am just not feeling it. I only like cold when it snows (which is never) and when I am off. Neither of those are the case tonight! oh well, get over it.......

I just wanted to post my cards I worked on since I'm slacking IMO. I'll post them in a second....

I wanted to be sure to let you know to get good coupons HERE! I found some, printed them and they worked. What a great site! I'm not sure what I did,but Shutterfly sent me a coupon for a free 8x8 photo book so I have to go see what I can do with it. FUN! check your e-mail if you are registered with them. I'm not sure what I did to deserve it, but Thank you Shutterfly! Oh, and if that wasn't just great news, I also received 50 free photos from shutterfly from a purchase at Archiver's! yippee!

o.k, so here are some cards for your inspiration and enjoyment.....hope you like them!

Blog Hoppin' Monday!

Today was a busy bee day for me! Aside from being a Monday- I was busy at work, busy after work and just busy with laundry, kids and catching up. Here it is almost midnight again and I am not too tired. Of course that could be cause I dozed off on the sofa earlier.....(no drool though, so I must have not been too sleepy?) LOL. It's funny how drool can be used to determine your tiredness. heehee!

So, first things first.Happy Monday! I have submitted my entry for Hero Arts Contest which is twice this month. Hoping to win! There are so many entries I might not have a chance but it's so worth a shot huh? I think so too! Tomorrow I am hoping to post all my cards I made over the weekend . I was a busy bee again! Well off to bed now so I won't wake up late.

oh wait here's my entry. let me know what you think

Nite bed bugs,

I'm here...

So much for daily bloggin'.  ;/  I have good reason though. I was gone Friday til today at a scrapbook retreat! Can you say FUN?  I went Here with a group of friends and some others who were very nice and funny. It was great! I stayed up a little late both days and boy that was exhausting which I am just feeling now. (I was dozing off watching t.v) heehee Among all the fun and cuttin' up, we did a little be-lated celebration for a great girl and the candle flames were the color of the candle! Yes! Can you imagine that? Well I did manage to take some pics too, which I'll get to in a sec. This was my first time to the Rockport Retreat and it was so great! After a year or two of not being able to go or having something going on, I finally made it! If you are in the Texas area, I will suggest you go. o.k well time for bed cause I am sooooooooooooooooo sleepy after a fun filled weekend! I'll post pics tomorrow.


Thursday, January 06, 2011


So glad it's Thursday..............cause it's my Friday! I'm off the weekend to go on my scrapbook retreat with 12 other crazy ladies! Car is packed, clothes is ready and I am not getting sleep I'm sure. I wasn't sure what I was going to work on, so I packed my room and am takin' it all. All I need is some DP and I'm good. Once again it's almost midnight (my time in South Texas) I'm ready to go! o.k just watched The last exorcism and I am going up stairs to bed cause Young is not leavin' me here way!

MOJO 172

I am happy that I am getting to play more....Here is the sketch for MOJO 172
this week.

and then here is mine....

and another ....

Almost hump day...

It's almost hump day ...I have a few things before it turns midnight since I stay up soooooooooooo late. ok real quick...We are doing /planning a major garage remodel since I need room to put all my scrap crap(as it's referred to) Anyhow, cricut boxes bug me and so I tossed out all the darn boxes. Really, they are such a waste. (IMO) I saw this but I am not up to paying $80. So............I came up with this below. $5 4x6 upright pages (6 to a page) and they'll go in a binder that will be $9! yes, I only put the overlay and the cartridge,but I have a gypsy too. I don't like clutter. Just sharing incase you have the same problem. I can't see using a gazillion boxes and having to open them every single time. (Especially when you need 3 cartridges) ;)

o.k goodnight all! time for bed..

I stayed up super late and slept super duper late. (ahhhh, how I'll miss it tomorrow). Anyhow, I stay up so late it's like I never posted. I'll just catch up! (hee hee)

It's great and I love it, here are some beauties I made today! Hope you likey.  ;)

Happy New Year! ................Welcome 2011! .........A New Year for Memories!

Well, it's come again. A brand spankin' new year and I'm still here! (yippee!, shall I say?)     ;)    Well, today marks day 1 of many things.

Day 1 of a new year( a given)
Day 1 of changing spending habits
Day 1 of bloggin' daily
Day 1 of drinking less soda
Day 1 of making this one butt kickin' year!

Ahhh, the joys of a new year! On that note, this is my day 1 (see, already one off the list) I should be asleep,but I can't sleep cause I'm not too sleepy. However, I am not feeling to great either. Don't know what I ate,but just stomach pains.(maybe I didn't eat much is the problem?)

I am so thankful to be here and have my precious family! I hope that you(my friends) will have an equally as cool year this 2011! I must go to bed cause my honey is taking me to Michael's and Archivers tomorrow! yaay! (yes, you think ugh....poor thing, Day 1 of spending habits....but oh no my pretty- I have giftcards!)

Have a splendid day friends,
