sizzix and reasons not to celebrate my birthday early

Have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend!

Start summer off right, eat plenty, play games, spend time with your family and enjoy that summer is here.


Manny scrapers on places like 2 peas and such would say that the sizzix is pretty much dead and I disagree. I recently purchased a clearanced sizzix die and this it is one of the cutest things I have seen for a while. I love the window not only does it remind me of my own home but it's one of those shapes that are timeless. Arched windows have been around for a couple of years right? So I'm sure I'll use it in more ways than just on my greeting card. I'm also sure that I'm not going to quit using my sizzix any time soon. I must admit since I started using my cuttle bug I have thought about getting rid of my side kick.

While this weekend promises to be filled with the first taste's and smells of summer and way to many activities than I can count on, my loving sister has decided that the family should celebrate my birthday early. So I present my top ten reasons not to celebrate my birthday early.

1. It's not my birthday

2. It's way to early

3. It's Alicia's weekend I would not want steel her thunder, her being the graduate and all

4. Gas prices are way to high

5. pshaw my birthday is next month

6. It's just to warm to have a celebration

7. It's been so hot the grass is starting to turn brown (not joking about that) we cant have a grill out cause it may catch the grass on fire

8. see #1

9. I'm not that old....... yet

10. Maybe I'm in denial about it? no that's not it see reason#2

One hint about the "old fashioned" Sizzix dies- you can cut shapes with chipboard on them. I love mine for that reason, custom made chipboard pieces. I bouth the Sizzix Big Kick to replace my old Sizzix machine not too long ago and love it.

PS: Angie, happy un-birthday :)

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 …
