not eating eggs, sausage, biscuits and syrup and all the other stuff is my game
and my little rap it a bit lame
but you like me any way
and I'm done rapping today
Ok I'll stop, is that better? Not much going on today just hanging out with clipie. Tomorrow at an un earthly hour of 7:30am est we will put the car in the shop. So that translates into I will probably wont blog early. What is it with mechanics why do they get up before the sun?
Moving on not much to tell you about other than snow we may get to see some today 20% chance! And tomorrow the same, nothing says Christmas like snow.
Happy New Year too all of you!

I have absolutely no projects to share with you of late. I haven't done a project since Saturday. I'm itching to use my ds but there is no time to spare with all of the Christmas cleanup going on.
I'm blogging because I'm trying to stay out of the family room because it's next to the kitchen that holds the goodies of leftover Christmas. Yes that's right I'm hiding from the food at this point. This home is a virtual food bonanza with every sweet and treat you could think of.
hmmm that's making me more hungry maybe I'll go take a small trip to the lean cuisine in the freeze

mine was great no snow for the second year in a row so I was a bit disappointed with that. Other than that Santa was good to me. I did get the design studio for the bug and quite a few clothes. I have a couple of things to take back today for my mom and later we are going to put my car in the shop it is very sick we may need to go look at new cars..... ugh I wasn't wanting to do this for a while. But you can only sink so much into a car that had 109,000 miles on it and it's 8 years old..... yes big mama is getting up there in years and I may halfta giver her up. Since it's only the second car I have ever had in my life it's sorta big.
Other than that things are same ol same o kinda thing.

Finding your place in the world outside of family and work sometimes is challenging. In December of 03 I had a place in this world, it was in a small suburb of a large Midwestern city. It was not a large life but it was full and one I had spent 30 years in building. I was a daycare teacher for 12 years, I was active in Girl Scouts, had wonderful neighbors/friends, I was a sitter for the Mops program at another church, I was also director of my church nursery. And then there were people who I had known all my life through the various programs and organizations my parents belonged too. I had/have many people who I came into contact in my life so to speak. Of course I chose my profession and accepted responsibility for all of my comments. In many of those commitments I not only found joy in the acts of service,I found my place. Not necessarily my friends but my place where I belong, where I'm comfortable. All of that somewhat came to an end when we moved down south. I had no job, no civic involvement, no church, and no life long acquaintances. For the first 6 months in our new city I just puttered around our home doing not much. I wondered the hole time will this life ever be like my old one? Will I enjoy it? Eventually we found a church to go too, and I found scrapbooking and knitting which ultimately led me to my life now. Have I found my place now? I think so my life now is much more slow yes but it's not necessarily a bad thing. When you live life at a slower pace you stop and get to enjoy it a bit. Whether it's age or experience I have found my new life pretty comfortable and feeling more and more at home in it. Take the blog I love it even if only 3 people read it every day I get pure joy out of it. My place in this world is here with you all, and I'm so thankful for all of you who read and I'm thankful for all of those of you who I call friend and make this life of mine so much more enjoyable.
and everyone else!

Welcome I'm Angie Wallace
and this is
60 seconds with a scrapper
Do you remember the beginning to 60 minutes? I do, when it came on, it meant it was time to turn the channel to the Muppet show. I feel like the past few days all I can hear is that clock tick tick ticking away counting down till Christmas. At last I only have cookies to make, still need to make the cranberry sauce and cinnamon bread. I'm playing the part of the chicken on the sauce, I'm a bit intimidated by the cran, how do I know that 1/2 of them have popped?
I'm all done shopping although that may not stop me from wondering out into the madness to go over to Kohl's later to check out the Rachel ray knife set that is on a huge sale. Cause my Chicago steel knifes keep rusting and my Henkels (sp??) are never very sharp and yes I know how to sharpen the knifes.
In other exciting news Mr Cippie is in the dog house. It all started when he asked me why I had to go to walmart in front of C and he knew why, he just was being a "do I ever use my brain man". So since he asked I told.... I had to get pads! As if that were not enough when we got in the store he told B's very nice and mom to be, step daughter that he was in trouble for mentioning my feminine protection. Ring the bell that was round two if you are counting. I don't mind if my close friends know but there is no need for that Period (if you'll excuse the pun). And it is total unacceptable behavior for him to talk about it with anyone but me . So yes He is on the short list. He did redeem himself a bit when he got up at 2 am with me while I was having an asthma attach, and yes I'm fine it was probably stress related. Me have stress nahhh.
So I have a few things for you all to keep in mind
I have no ideal when the next time I will blog
Monday I will have another card on display at the bitten by the bug site.
Pray for the traveling,
Pray that my cranberry sauce turns out too (just joking)
I wish you and all your family's a very Merry Christmas
I know I have not sent out e-mails in forever but I have really had no time So I love ya all and take care.

2 bag o cran
some cran apple or cran grape juice
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tbsp of honey
1 can mandarin oranges drained and cut at least in half
Do y'all know how to make cranberry sauce? ( I know probably a silly question) I have made it twice the first time it went in the trash, the second time... well lets just say it was ok but not great. This is a new recipe I sorta put together after looking a many recipes on the food network a mish mash of every one's ideals. The big changes are boiling the cranberry's in juice not water and adding honey. Wish me luck! I'll report back soon, lets hope the third time is the charm.
I have been making cheese balls and will be cooking at least two dishes a day for the next few days until Christmas. I will mostly freeze the goodies to keep the clipie from eating all of the tasty foods. Which is my of telling you I must end my blog session to go cook!
6 days till Christmas
3 gifts left, to get! I can see the end of the wrapping paper roll!

I'm going to blabber on about it for just a bit cause I have a need to.
I finished one of my 5 scarfs yesterday
This morning I got started on another and I think I'm half way
My clipie scarf I have no ideal.... Will it get done? That is the question. I'm doing his scarf on size 4 needles (0 is the smallest size in needles if you are wondering) but extremely simple and no real pattern.
I have two more I have yet to start! One is for a cousin hers will be a sloppy scarf (just name of pattern) and the other will be for me to match my coat I will be getting for Christmas.
ugh will I ever learn I'm in to deep?
I have a small amount of shopping to finish and no real good gift for clippie yet
ugh morning frustration
I have cards to get out today (mine)
and cards to finish making for my knitty pot luck
not to mention my a couple cards for some ww people.
And I need to decide what to make for dinner tonight
I have a scrap book I have not even started and I'm considering giving an I o u or another gift
I can't decide it would be a short book no more than 12 pages.
I'm sneezing my head off and it's just plan irritating and very normal
Again today I will be having another project on bitten by the bug, a flake catcher it's so cute! check it out! here is the link. http://regina-bittenbythebug.blogspot.com/
I know I should not be taking the time to blog but I cant help my self. I enjoy it so much It's a mini vacation and helps me relax.
btw who was that weirdo who wrote about no being panicky the the previous post. She must have not looked at her to do list!

I wanted to take a picture of my outdoor Christmas lights however since we are in the middle of a torrential down pour it's not going to happen. I spent the better part of yesterday (after church) working on the outdoor lights. The lights were very hard to work with this year we only did the bushes by the door and around the door. We also spent much time trying to repair the angel that is still not working I'm very sad to say.
I also should have another card on the bitten by the bug site some time this morning.
On Saturday my sister went back home, she was feeling better, her cold was just about gone and it had stopped snowing more that 4 inches at a time making it much more easy to travel. My Mother said she had about 7 inches total of snow, last week (which did melt away) and was due to get sleet all night last night. Have I told everyone How much I love the southern weather? Once again I'm so happy to be listening to a down pour as opposed to sleet. That's a no brainier and 66 vs 39 degrees? Uh yeah, I don't think I'll be moving up north anytime soon.
I promise to post a very cute project here in a bit.
did i say how much I love my new Internet?

Friday, December 07, 2007
yes it is high speed but not true dsl- no I do not understand it
he told me if I don't like it, or if it's not fast enough he will change it
I have no ideal how it works other than it is something about compressing???? on the regular phone line
and I can use the phone at the same time like dsl so I will not have a busy signal anymore
only draw back is I don't have free long distance
and it should be here today or tomorrow and he will try to hook it up as soon as we get our unit.
And I'm waiting to post scrappie things until then, my last down load took 45 min for the card for the bitten by the bug site and that my friends is too long. As for my life I have a house full of people and I'm told two good apple pies. I think they had to much flower in the apple part but I was told I was wrong, who knows. I'm counting down to December 22 when I may have almost 48 hrs alone with my husband.
I received my pd cart yesterday I'll up date you all later on that.
Thursday, December 06, 2007
To some, not others like me.
Today I made 2 apple pies and it took the better part of 2 hrs. Not exactly easy to this person who has only ever made 1 pie in her life. How is it that I never have? You ask well..... I don't really have an answer to that other than it's just life getting in the way of the pie. Now I'm not a ultra talented cook I can make most of the basics and I only have about one bad dinner a month. I'm defiantly not from the school of ultra talented like Emerald or the Barefoot Countessa (sp???) nope not me simple girl, simple cook. It really helps out that I have not been doing a lot of cooking of late, less cooking = less bad dinners. How did that first pie turn out you ask (or maybe you don't want to know the crust on the bottom did not get done enough for me it was editable) it was ok the guys ate it and well I don't really know how much that says most guys will eat it if you put enough cool whip on it kwim? I went with a traditional Betty crocker recipe and added a few extras like brown sugar and a dash of vanilla. Its smelling so good at this point I'm ready to rip the darn thing out of the oven and eat in now done or not. In seven minutes I will stick in the second pie in the oven and go for broke I will have two delicious pies or two that don't cut the mustard. I had only intend on making one pie however I had bought my grannies at Sam's club and the bags of apples are giants compared to Kroger. Those bags should come with a warning " this is super sized bag of apples and it can cause you more work" as in I had no ideal all the apples would not fit into one pie so I ended up doubling my recipe and making two. Thank heavens I had bought extra pie crusts. My seven are up and I gotta go.
yes clipie did get me different Internet I'll explain as best I can later.

Now down here in the south when you say snow you mean " THE SKY IS FALLING" everyone is in a virtual frenzy and runs to the store for the southern basics (which are) Bread, Beer, Milk and eggs. Back home we scoff at this preparing frenzy the only frenzy we ever witnessed was y2k and yes I did participate in the silly ness, but not in an extreme manor. I had a case of diced tomatoes, a case of caned fruit and lots of frozen things. Getting back to the snow in the south...... I do love snow, I love to see it, I love to play in it and I love to wake up to it. When Mr I and myself bought our last home up north we moved in on Christmas Eve and when we awoke Christmas morning is was to look out and see that overnight everything had been covered with a blanket of white. It was a memorable moment to say the least. I do miss that snow on almost every Christmas morning. ah thanks for letting me reminisce today.
Tuesday, December 04, 2007
Mr I will be working my Internet today (I is for Internet today)hopefully we will be seeing the digi net in my home soon. Wow I cant wait to upload and put all my pics and projects on the blog.
As for me as usual Today is full of ww and knitting while Mr I checks out price plans and runs his fingers through cyber world learning about the dsl.
And speaking of stamps have any of you seen the doodle bug stamps they are cute here is a link.http://www.doodlebug.ws/viewCategoryContents.action?categoryId=4028818a1092a4620110985cab990034
Scrap happy girl will return to regular blogging tomorrow when hubby goes back to work
Monday, December 03, 2007
So what do y'all think about the stamp? I was surprised, I never have heard of Peachy Kean stamps and they seem to be very nostalgic. And an interesting fact if you get published using their stamps they will actually pay you -interesting concept. if anyone wants to order let me know we will do a group thing.
And in the news I'm being published on the Internet! I'm going to be featured on the bitten by the bug blog as Decembers guest designer with my Santa card. My card should be up sometime today here is the link: http://regina-bittenbythebug.blogspot.com/2007_12_01_archive.html
I may periodically have work on her blog this month so stay tuned for future work on her blog. This is my first time ever being published for my work!
I'm truly a Scrap Happy Girl this morning!
Saturday, December 01, 2007
This stamp the "ginger girl" yes the ginger girl is a stamp! Was referred to me by the bitten by the bug site, someone suggested I should enter their contest so when I found this ginger girl I was so shocked.
Oddly enough this image was the topic of conversation at our Christmas party last night. I had been in a swap on the cricut board and received a swap tag with this girl and I had no ideal where it came from. I'm glad it was found here is the link
at 1:00 pm cst
the ultimate factories
The corvette plant is being featured and Mr I and my bil will be on. Just a glimpse of my dream boat but Carl gets a full screen shot he will be putting in door windows.
We have had a great Christmas party, Chelle we missed you.
Thursday, November 29, 2007
I also wanted to share some great news my mother continues to have great doctor check ups and is Cancer free.
Tuesday, November 27, 2007
I'm up to my ears in crafts project for Christmas, I have no ideal how or when I'm going to finish them all. I have several scarfs and one huge s/b project. And on top of it my submission for guest designer is due at the end of this week. I'm going to need to stop and finish one project at a time at this point. And in the mist of all this Christmas craftyness I'm trying to do the normal day to day things like take care of my Pumpkin who was not feeling well yesterday.
The Christmas rush I love it. Being so busy you can hardly breathe and having so much fun in the mix of it. Its hard to remember from year to year the rush of things, but what I do remember is the fun and enjoyment I get from all the hard work.
My body can also hear the call of the holidays I have lost my first 10 pounds thanks to much help of ww. And with that I will be eating less cause every ten pounds they take away points, just in time for Christmas may I add. It's as if my body was tuned in the the holiday food, she must eat less of our goodness. So bye bye ten pounds please go away and never come back and hello less points and a smaller me.
-Ten pounds think about two 5 pound packs of sugar and if your wondering yes it's worth the struggle with the point system.
That's it for now

I changed the number of the party to 9 (including me) My sister is coming.
here is an article on Anastassia (yes the real one) It appears her ending was not the one we wanted for her. I was un acquainted with legend until the children's move was made.
here is the link http://news.aol.com/story/_a/russias-last-royal-mystery-unraveled/20071124190209990001?ncid=NWS00010000000001

1 gray cat with black stripes Wednesday night
cat was wet, crying in the rain.
cat is good, uses litter box, very scared.
Missing: Raggs the cat
Residence: Next door
This was an adventure I'm thankful it's over.
( I wrote this earlier today and when I came back tonight to read it made no sense. While I was writing everyone was yelling for me to come to dinner so this is revised from this afternoon.
Wednesday night when we were unpacking my sisters car we found a cat (see George). The cat came to us wet, upset and lost (or so we thought). It went into the garage for the night, the next day was Thanksgiving so we knew we would put off doing anything about until the holiday. Thursday and Friday the cat would not come out from hiding (in the garage) we truthfully thought it had somehow got out of the garage. This morning it left behind some "evidence" that it was still around not to mention it had finally ate the food I had left for it. Obviously the cat had just been scared and hiding. This afternoon after several rounds of "here kitty kitty" she came out from behind the freezer we retrieved the numbers from her tag (rabies tag) and had no luck with them. At this point I had checked Craig's list and all the local papers not knowing what to do my mom was trying to find the next door neighbors phone number- their daughter is vary familiar with all the neighbors and she thought she may know who the kitty belonged to. However she could not find the number so I had basically gave up for the day. Rod and I had went out to the garage fix the garage door and put the cars away for the night when I happened to see the neighbor girl(who we were trying to call) outside walking with her sister. I asked her to come over, I said to her "We found a cat Wednesday night" I didn't even finish telling her the rest and she said "It's mine" (I was going to ask her if she knew who it belonged to) she had obviously been crying and was holding a picture of the cat in her hands. We went into the garage and she called the kitty and it came out from it's hiding place as soon as she called it's name!
I'm just so thankful this turned out good! I am a lover of cats but I did not want another at this point. It's just a happy ending to a great Thanksgiving weekend.
I'll be back to regular bloggin soon
I hope you all have had a great weekend with family & friends
oh I forgot I need a number for Friday night is this right?
MH + friend
and Chelle is not (but we don't want to leave her out)
Wednesday, November 21, 2007
I hope you are able to spend the day with family & friends
and I hope you all have a safe and fantastic holiday
I have so much to be thankful for
and so much more in my life
I am also thankful for all of you who read the blog and I'm thankful for all the wonderful women I have meet at the big girl table....(ps M H you are now a part of the big girl table). One day I'll explain that on the blog but for now I'll just keep others guessing ; )
And like aways I'm typically on an adventure, as we were unpacking my sisters car I herd a cry. It scared me I knew that cry I thought it was Pumpkin and she had got out but it was not it was..... we will call him (I think) George. George was crying because he was wet and it's obvious George is not used to getting wet. So he is currently sleeping in the garage. On Friday I will call the county he does have a rabies tag but no other tag and he has the most annoying bell ugh. Pumpkin(a very long time ago) had a bell, and after they quit making the type of bell she wore, she quit wearing the bell because it was driving us and her insane. Getting back to George ..... in the morning I will ask around at the neighbors house but it's to yucky out to do that now.
So go eat some turkey and have a great day
THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS TO ALL OF YOU
I am tired
I am sweaty
Shouldn't this be over with already?
The food I'm making smells so great
I could have some more, if I weren't watching my weight
As the wee hours stretch in to the night
My pizzelle making is almost finished they came out just right!
As you can tell I did get to sleep about 2 am this morning only to wake again at 5, drink caffeine and be un able to go back to sleep. So in short I'm in need of a nap, tired and grumpy (if I keep it up I can be all seven dwarfs)! Just joking all things aside I love it, I love the results of working so hard and in the end everyone enjoying that hard work. Especially when it tastes so good. I'm going to go take a nap have a visit with Regis and Kelley this morning.

Q K - at H L if you did not get a chance to see them. they have a chick, duck, three different flowers, a file folder tab, a lady bug grass, heart, and plenty more that I can't remember. All the ones I just mentioned are 6.99 to 12.99, the dies range from 6.00 and up. Debbie H pointed something out to me that they were made in America! That really surprised me and I wanted to highlight that because with all the recent problems in product safety it really makes you glad to see one product made here in the U.S.
Also thank you to everyone who made cd's and/or made there pictures available. I appreciate that because I did not have many pictures this year due to loosing my memory cards (yes cards) and low batteries.
Bonnie's Class was so wonderful I just still can't believe she gave us an album and 3 pages and 1 12x12 she is so great!
Thursday, November 15, 2007
Wednesday, November 14, 2007
The class at Bonnie's was one of the best I have ever taken. Oh my we received $45. worth of product and the pages are so beautiful! I've taken some classes and I'm telling you this is better than most of the the cku-master classes I have taken. Lots of cutting and measuring but so worth it, lots of paper left over. I bought an extra sticker packet and the cat's eye she used. The supply list you need to bring is long but again you wont mind in the end. Thank heavens it did not rain on the way there and on the way back, oh and long, we did not get back until 10. Make sure you are on time you will need every second of class, and try not to talk even my usual talkie self had to be quiet to follow along. (I know gasp I was quiet)
Yesterday was my busy day I had a whole 45 min between activities. So last night after I was home I fell asleep while I was knitting (thankfully it was at the end of a row) and woke up to the "cops theme" about 1 am. I'm still recovering from our weekend of scrap.
The butter finger bar was from Terri.
And that's it for now

I have a few things to wrap up before I can come and start the scrapping goodness.
For those of you who didn't get a chance to go or read from afar I'm sorry about the laps in blogging till Monday. I hope you have a great weekend and "come Monday" I'll be back to blogging just like usual, and I'll probably be able to share a few great stories.

Sam's club was the place to be yesterday.
I went to peruse the isles of bulk when I had an encounter, Sam the turkey. According to employee's Sam's home is in the wood thicket just beside the store. Sam is a huge thing and also my first close (UFTE = Unidentified Friendly Turkey Encounter) encounter with a real live turkey. However this big chicken was in her car not wanting to touch the Turkey goodness of Sam. I was at Sam's club twice yesterday once early morning (see a visit with Sam) and then again late to pick 87 pictures off of cd's, cause my printer is dead. Now usually I learn from things that happen in my life but not yesterday. I could have kicked myself for not having a camera so I could capture Sam the turkey on film, but my second visit I had yet another encounter. "The van of free speech" I believe it was a mini-van with bumper stickers covering the entire vehicle, including the roof. It was a radical type of thing, downing mostly the theory of smoking and that democrats are liars and raise taxes and so forth. Now we all know that just like most attorneys to be a politician you have got to be able to "bluff or aka lie" So it really makes no difference, who trusts any politician? (I may trust the gov-a-nater but you can chalk that one up to lots of movie watching). Getting back too.... "the van o weird" also had Christmas lights lighting up it's various bits of "wisdom". Yep My camera is going in my purse here in a bit I'm not going to take the chance to miss Sam the turkey today when I go to pick up my photos :)

I can't believe it is just three days away
I'd better work a bit more hard towards getting things wrapped up.
Christmas had come early once again at H L they are offering again this week a 40% off coupon. Link http://www.hobbylobby.com/site3/weekly/coupon.cfm so if you missed an "deals" you can take a quick trip.

I'm alone with clipie this weekend
Yuck I've had a small bug that I cant seem to shake in the mix of all this
Friday we went out on a real date and we ate a Red Lobster (who's strawberry daiquiris are Delicious fyi)
Then later that night we stopped by chucks and I got carded!
That makes a girl feel young I tell you and yes I thanked the man who carded me

It's been a while since I haven't been called mam makes you feel a bit old after a while kwim?
All week I have been in debate on weather to buy the hobby lobby tote and passed it by, I'm hoping this was not a mistake, still debating.
We also ended up in the worlds longest traffic jam close to the post office.
Brown wants 13. something to send a bubble envelope- no way- yes way- going to fed ex today
We watched Licence to Wed it was great.
We went to the the Chinese buffet on the by-pass it was good.
Last night I finally got my knitting project back in shape (like you care about my knitting) I'm just sayi'n.

In other very sad news Porter Wagner has died, now if you will recall Clipie and I did see him at the Grand Ole Ory in August of this year. If you don't know who he was he was the one who invented the very flashy country and western sequined suit and back in the older days he would open up his suit jacket and it would say "Hi" or something like that.
And the weekend brought another scrapbooking scandal and yes again it centers around the Scrap Smack Blog, who have been the industry whistle blowers of late. According to one smacker the garden girls at 2 peas have a private message board to converse on, and these garden girls don't like scrap smack especially when they start telling the truth about things like pulling threads and the like. Well one anonymous smacker was doing a search and discovered if you search the right info that private board is not longer private. According to the smacker Pea 1 herself (the owner of 2 peas or past owner before she sold the company to Kaboose) was thinking about "outing" the now famous GUESS WHO (the anonymous person who runs the scrap smack blog) and along with that was not speaking very highly of her in the mix. Supposedly Pea 1 did a search and discovered who, guess who is, through her credit card purchases. Supposedly she was thinking about sharing her info with these garden girls and sharing this info is a tad bit illegal on many levels.
Now I don't know about you but I do like to visit 2 peas often, there are some great ideals over there. I have never loved the dramatics over there just a bit too much for me, but the controversy makes you think. Who wants to shop at a place of business who can't maintain the confidential records such at your credit card info? Your name is part of that information. I'm so glad I have not posted on 2 peas in years, I'm so glad my inner lurker takes over often. Due to all this controversy I'm taking down my 2 peas link. I'm really getting tired of seeing the very bad side of all these industry leaders, it makes me weary to think at someone could use my info because they didn't like me. I so wish people would get there act together, I'm tired of all the drama. Cant some company's put on there big girl panties and run a business like it is supposed to be ran? link http://scrapsmack.blogspot.com/
In other news I stared packing this weekend how may bags are you going to take?excluding your clothing bag.???

Days from now we will be basking in retreat goodness. We will be safely tucked away in a secluded and remote area filled with scraphappyness. We will glance at the natural beauty around us as we use un recycled paper in the name of archiving and giggle when we spread the best glues hobby lobby has to offer. We will love the sound of the cricut and call it the best bug ever. We will rejoice in a scrap happy sisterhood and eat at lest three times a day. We will not shy away from Chocolate or sweet, or greasy snacks we will embrace them by chewing the love out of them. We will dress up and act silly and have a great time I'm looking forward to it!

I have a few things that I would like to bring up
1.first does anyone know the cost to eat at the lodge? the buffet
2. who is making the flag?
3. pj's - after reading the letter I think we clearly need pj's
I really didn't think it was to important until I read the letter.
I really don't know what to do at this point. Like I said early today I feel mostly responsible cause of my big behind. It would not be a problem for me to wear something different. And yes I have lost weight but I don't think it's enough. Also I'm not opposed to trying on anything or helping look. I think at this point you all should decide what to do? You all get matching pj's and I'll try to match them up as best I can or something, I'm really at a loss here. If you want me to help look just list where you have looked (including online) the prices and possibilities. That way we are not all looking in the same place. I'll post later where I have looked and what I have found.
again after the letter I think we should have pj's.
Moving on I'm going to go ahead and order my t-shirt, so I can wear it.
And what is your favorite color?
(I'll group all questions together so it will be easy )
buffet price ?
the flag? dw?
kmart did have lands end soft stretchy pants that look like pj's for 9, bucks online I can go to the store and see if they fit, not a problem.
I do think the fashion bug pj's are just to high in price
You know if you all want to go ahead and do the stripe pants that's ok. (I'm not opposed to wearing somthing diffrent). I feel bad at this point and I feel like I'm mostly to blame cause my butt is so darn big. a
for the fluffly
it is only fate that is has a pink bow. yes I know we would need to hide it I'm just sayin its pink it could be fated to be with me cause it's pink and that's how I roll. pink
That's it for now

Yesterday and today it's been wet and when you get wet you actually get cold. Now cold is something we have not had the pleasure to feel all summer long and I'm so lovin our rain filled days. (you get wet and cold when you step out on to your patio to put your mums in the rain so they will keep living and do not need to use the city watter to keep them alive. You sacrifice getting wet and cold b/c you are trying to conserve watter and be kind to your environment, seeing that your in a drought and don't want to become the city of Atlanta and not have drinking watter and all ) And News flash my mums have lived through several week in my care and I am amazed at this fact I have kept plaint life alive my grandma would have been some what proud. Ok moving on
How about glue? yesterday I did go get some sale glue there were only 4 packs of glue star herma left and there were bunches on Saturday. So we all must be stocking up for retreat or it could be the fact that it's the first time in a while it's been on sale. I am officially ready glue wise, I just need to get everything else ready.
Don't forget tonight is a fund raiser for Chelle's son at Arby's

Fourth retreat is officially 19 days away!

Sixth sorry no posts over the weekend I just have had a busy weekend

While I have been working on many things yesterday (my home has been a flurry of activity of late) my blog anniversary slipped away from me. As of the 17 my blog is a year old, can you believe it? It in no way seems like a year, since then I've had more than 7,500 page viewings. Wow that's a lot. So I just want to say thanks to my best friends and family for stopping by and participating and in truth it's that participation that makes this blog interesting. Y'all give me ideals and topics to wright about and always coming up with something new to say or share. So here is a big fat Thank You from me to all of you for reading, participating, overlooking my creative spelling as well as crazy posts.
just a few things
chelle would be proud..... I have cleaned one whole bin of stuff out of my sbr closet, as well as put paper on the shelves in there. Also the back bedroom is some what looking better.
I'm also bringing some tags and stuff to get rid of I hope y'all will take a few things
off of my hands
I can't think of anything else right now I'm off to pack for tonight.....

This silhouette wins the award for coolest thing we've seen all day -- and it's not just because the tiny dancer above is in the buff. This is a little test that will tell you whether the left or right hemisphere of your brain is more dominant.Instead of concentrating on her chest, concentrate on the woman's movement. If you see her spinning clockwise, that means you're using the right side, or more creative side of your brain. If she appears to be moving counter-clockwise, then that means the left side, or more logical side of your think muscle is superior. At the Switched office, some of us see her going clockwise, others see her spinning counter-clockwise. At least one of us claims to see both, while another one of us opened this animation in Adobe ImageReady in order to isolate the frames to see if there's any direction-changing funny business going on. There isn't. Take the test for yourself. Then, if you have time for a 50-question survey, compare these instant results to a more thorough diagnosis.From Gizmo Watch
so he had to get back out and fix the garage door for me (making him about a whole 1 minute early for work). Then all was fine until I was sitting where I'm sitting now and the lights went out. yep me by my self sitting at my computer still typing and its dark. I'm so thankfully God let some very smart brain event cell phones cause the come in handy epically when you don't have a flash light. So my house smells pretty this morning a mix of different scented candles and the hum of the computer and swirl of the cling fan.
Now that my smeller, humming and swirling is going on I can get my geek on with doing my blog thing. Ah I forgot to add my glass of sweet tea, cold sweet tea.
I know moving on I'm still cleaning my back bedroom ugh so not fun. Wishing I had a maid or someone like that to take care of it for me while I clean. so far I have my paper stacks and packs of same paper(thank you Big Lots) now in my sbr closet. Last night clipie carried some more paper in here for me I just need to go through it and get it on the shelf. So I'm off to sort through paper and do various exciting things like wash clothes and work on a couple of l/o I don't have done.
see you all tomorrow I'm so excited

I also need to say that Saturday morning I'll be late (i think) I'm supposed to take my sister out to breakfast cause she is coming down for a visit. I may leave early each night but I'm still going to crop, after all it will be my last chance until retreat. And speaking of retreat we are 3 weeks away as of this Thursday.
So it looks like I will have a flurry of cleaning out the back bedroom this morning , I may just start cleaning my rooms a bit Moore soon than I thought, my nice will need that bedroom (if she comes with her mom).
oh and the purple tote (this is really silly) I wanted to post a pic of it on a message board and I did not know how to cut and paste (until yesterday when dh taught me how) so I was going to post it then take it down but by the time I got back to the blog y'all were getting down right talkie. so now you know about the purple tote post.
Tuesday, October 16, 2007
The prime reason I haven't posted anything before was i could not figure out how to make my file small enough to fit on there pg but found a way as of last night that involved cutting and pasting, I hope I can remember how i did it cause I want to do it again.
right now I'm working on a city snow scape. if it turns out I'll post it too but later after things settle down a bit. I have laundry to do at the moment so I'm off with a date with the washer and dryer (oh joy)

I wanted to remind everyone that the crop is Friday and Saturday @ the Club House
Also seeing that we are 4 weeks from retreat, this weekend (and this will be our last crop until retreat) would be a good time to get everything in order for it. So if you think of anything we need to bring let me know and I'll get the word out.
Also we will be planning a clean and crop/ Christmas party for my house on Friday and Saturday November30 and December 1st. White elephant gift $5.00 (same as last year?) sounds good? let's decide Friday and Saturday so you all will have time to think about it.If it's OK with you I'd like to do the Christmas fun stuff Friday and Saturday the clean and organize. To those of you who haven't read my blog long I have a great really wonderful set of Friends who happen to be scrappers and they are going to help me re organize my dysfunctional and unclean scrapbook room. See federal disaster area (I mean my messy scrapbook room below) be for warned the pictures are real and real messy. Unfortunately it took me about two days to get it that clean. uh yep I know I should not be that honest.

Apparently most of the content is controversial or just plain nosey but they have brought and issue with Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame contest (HOF) to light. Makes me feel a bit squirmy cause I did enter the page contest when I went to cku masters and didn't to agree at all with some of the pages picked. So it does make me wonder was I judged on a level playing field? Who knows it was 2 years ago and you just cant go back and change the results now. But do go over some of them should get an a + in creative writing ; )
Moving on last night I did go buy a few totes and need to know what time are you coming over? And yes I have tried to clean some but I don't think it helped much. I may continue to try to clean until y'all get here.
And lastly It's is finally cold outside! I'm not sure I know how to act. Yeah this is the second day in a row I'm not taking shower because I'm dripping with sweat and my mums have survived for 2 weeks! 2 weeks I have kept plant life alive this is monumental. Stay cool enjoy the weather before it goes back up to 90 again.
