the seat cuishion search

Yesterday was a very full day in which I'm still tired from.

At the current moment I'm just listening to the news hoping it will be as nice as it was yesterday, it was 65 here at the house and beautiful. I'm currently trying to track down a seat cushion for my swing on the patio. Yes I've tried Wal mart, Kmart, Lowe's, Home depot, and Target and no cushion. I'm trying Trees and trends, Big lots today and if un successful (someone start praying) I'm going to need to get material and sew. You all know I can't sew don't you? You all know that any scrapbook page with sewing on it is well....tainted with me. It's all really comes down to self confidence and I can't sew, I'm sewing challenged. The darn cushion is an odd size 52 inches wide and 20 inches deep that's the cause of the searching. When we bought the darn thing at Target they did carry replacement cushions for it, just not now.

All jokes aside it is truly frustration to try to keep "the good stuff" in today's throw it away society. Example Clipie's suggestion was just to get a new swing. But that would be throwing away my old one and it's just something I don't want to do.Why cant buying a seat cushion be simple? Something in life needs to be simple, and I think a seat cushion sounds good, how about you? Why the obsession about the cushion that you have now wasted 15 mins on reading? My niece Bethany (and her hubby Mike) has decided to come for a visit this weekend and I want to use the swing as seating out back.


Moving on to all things scrappy Hobby Lobby has stamps 1/2 off and paper. Soon I will start sharing some baby shower cards but I actually must make them first so I'll get to it a bit later in the week.

Good luck on the cushion search. Sometimes Roses has stuff like that and nobody thinks to look there. Also Ace Hardware (by El Matzalan).

Well, today it was 40, the warmest day yet, and there is still snow on the ground. Calling for snow tomorrow night, yuck! I have a conflict for NSD weekend, and I am totally bummed out. I am going to do my best to make it for some of the weekend, I am thinking Friday night, Saturday morning, and Sunday afternoon. I hate conflicts that involve work.
Angie: I emailed you about the possibility of summer employment as you posted, but hadn't heard back from you which is very unusual, so thought I would post here if it's not too late.

See everyone soon. PS: AC Moore has a coupon in the paper for the next four days, 50% off any 2 items...guess where I am headed tomorrow!!

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…

Life

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…
