Wow what a surprise waking up to 33 degrees on the back porch. I'm not complaining cause it's much better than a hot 100 that we had not much more than a month ago. I may need to pull out the old Columbia coat cause that's a bit chilly. And yes I'm up early this morning.

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

I have packed and repacked several times. I have way too much. I will never get through all the projects and pages I have packed. I think I have enough to last 2 years at least. I have my rolling tote from Office Max filled with page kits and projects. I have my Michael's tote of essential tools. I have my Karen foster rolling tote (the small one you can supposedly sit on) that has my Cricut stuff, punches and other tools. Angie: Do you still want to share your Cricut with me? We can set it on the KF bag between us, works pretty good. Let me know. And then there are the ridiculous goodies and treat bags I have ready because I am silly and that's just how that goes...and the flag centerpiece which is about 1/2 done. And a cooler which I'll leave in the car. Good golly! I think I'll throw a tray table in the car just in case.

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…


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 …

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…
