not so much

So uh I didn't get the scanner all wired up and ready to scan cause it's wires are all berried under a table that is currently covered it wonderful scrap stuff. I'll be digging in here shortly (sigh just another cleaning related project can you tell I don't want to clean? not so much ). I also have some Martha paper I have wanted to "show off" but I cant seem to get the energy to take a picture of it. Of course it's pink and 18x18.

We don't take no coupons
I meet a real nice clerk at Mikes when I was checking out I was buying the Martha paper and she was admiring it so it started up a conversation ( y'all know I cant pass up a conversation) I was asking if the1.99 Martha paper was ever going to go on sale and she said probably not, most of the future adds she had seen didn't have any Martha on sale. And that led her to say that years ago she seen Martha on an interview and someone had asked her what she did for relaxation and did she play video/board games? The clerks started laughing so it was hard for her to finish up her story, she said Martha said "I don't play games" in her low slow very serious Martha voice, kinda like slow motion. She said Martha had a special contract with Mike and she didn't think Martha was the kinda girl who liked sales, so she imagined Martha said to Mike " I don't take coup-ons" (saying coup-ons like your French or asking for grey poupon) so every time I look at my cute Martha paper I think "I don't take coupons"
and with that I say
have a great day
Blessings A

Yea, you can't use coupons on the Martha won't take long before it goes on clearance or ends up at Big Lots, like the Leeza G stuff did. Sure, some of it's OK - but us scrappers have been buying supplies long before MS decided to jump on the wagon.

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
