My Awesome friend Beth (whom I miss SO much) tagged me,  so here goes!

The rules are:

1) Link to the person who tagged you ( I did above)
2) Post the rules
3) Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
4)Tag at least 3 other people
5)Be sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting about what you did.

Six Facts About Me

1.  I absolutely HATE driving!  I have never driven on the expressway because I have talked myself into being a total chicken about the whole thing.

2. Speaking of chicken, I will not eat chicken on the bone. I don't know what it is that bothers me about it but I'm just a bit grossed out by it.  Turkey on the bone, sure, all day long.

3. Although I listen to classic rock and country music most often, i absolutely LOVE heavy metal 

4.  I have a pet rabbit named Powder.  He is over 10 years old now and I harbor a constant sense of guilt over the fact that I can't keep him with me (he's at mom and dad's) because my cats will torture him.

5. I have an amazing memory for remembering where I saw or put something.  I remember all the details.  Unfortunately, I can't quote a movie or tell a joke to save my life.

6.  I have a facebook page, myspace, a website and a blog, yet I have no one to tag because my only friend with a blog tagged me!

**If you are reading this blog and you have your own to post on, consider yourself tagged!

Have  a great day!

Didn't make it to visit Rex today.  The roads were questionable and not feeling so well.  I feel crummy about it, but hopefully I'll be able to see him soon.  Did some more painting instead.  Hopefully I can post those soon.

My sweet friend Jo gave me this cute handmade bird for Valentine's Day.  I absolutely love it!  So much in fact that it inspired me to make a couple of felt items of my own. So I spent some time today, while I was off for mid-winter break, creating the big and little hearts.   Now all I need is a little stuffing and all three can sit in my scrapbooking room to inspire me!

Thank You!

Happy Belated Valentine's Day!  I love all of my wonderful friends and family who tried to make yesterday as enjoyable as possible for me.  You guys rock, I am so blessed to have you in my life!

Kitty in a Bag

She's so darn cute!

More Handmade Stuff

Here are a few cards I made over the weekend for the love of my life.  Simple, yet cute and sentimental.  Did I mention that we got another day off school today?  This time it was too cold to start the buses.  Wow! That's four snow days in just over two weeks.  I'm not complaining!

12 Hour Crop

Here's the project I completed between the morning and afternoon shifts working the 12 Hour Crop for school.  I gave it to Rex when I visited yesterday. He looked at it quickly, but I know he will really enjoy it.  He is very romantic and sentimental after all. :)  (More pinks, reds and hearts to make me smile!)

Thursday, February 07, 2008


Boy today went fast!  I only have a couple more hours to create.  It's LOST night you know.  Don't try to reach me from 9-10. (HA! Just kidding...well, not really.)

A Day to Create

We got another snow day today so I am setting housework and schoolwork aside to create.  Here's my list of all the things I'm eager to do today:

*upload and edit photos from my camera 
      (including photos from the Superbowl party)
*finish at least one of my paintings
*more updates on this blog
*organize photos & supplies to plan for a 12 hour crop
*make Rex some more cards
*break out my new stamp set
*take photos of the snow
*create a new banner for the blog
*and maybe even scrapbook  a little!

No, I won't get all of this done.  These are just the fun things I have the option of doing.  Elsie's artwork (see photo mosaic above) really inspires me, can you tell?

P.S. I finally found the mosaic sight again, so you can expect to see lots of fun photos from now on. :)
*The items in red actually got done!

This Is Important To Me

I have had this posted on my bulletin board since the first of the year.  It's a daily reminder to me to keep pushing onward. Rex has one with him too.  Please pray for us.


The hearts, the reds, and pinks, there's just something about this time of year that makes me smile.

Looking forward to...

Anyone who knows me well knows that I really look forward to scrapbooking marathons on QVC.  That's right, I tape them so that I can watch all of the eye candy when I get home from work. This is the 9,000 piece Today's Special Value for Monday.  It just so happens that I am attending a Superbowl party at a friend's house and will be coming home just about the time that it will be on TV (midnight for those of you who care).  I have a feeling that Monday will be a rather sleepy day for me.  

Love is a Battlefield

While surfing the internet on Friday I realized that it was the first of  the month and all the new kits would be up for sale.  One of my favorite kits every month is by the Red Velvet Kit Club.  The kits are so popular that you basically have to skip work, put a spoon under your pillow and cross your fingers, toes and eyes in order to hope to even have a chance at one. This month they began posting their kits on Etsy and since I was up  at 5:30 a.m. anyway (snow day!) I decided to check it out.  I was one of  the very last to get the kit!  I needed a little pick me up this weekend, and this little piece of inspiration did the trick.  I can't wait to receive it!

LOVE this!

Check out the cool origami albums made by my friend Jo!  Her shop Senza Rotture can be found at .  These are just a couple of the fun love themed items, but she has a whole bunch of beautiful albums for sale.  You have to check it out! (So far I have purchased two of her albums and I absolutely adore them. :)
