T Day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

So about two weeks ago "we" (better known as "I" because he hid and mysteriously had something to do when I was scraping out the guts, conveniently) carved our first pumpkin in the life of our marriage. yeah we never had done that. Being the crafty girl I am I also baked the seeds

Umm...... yeah so even the ducks would not eat my burnt pumpkin seeds

In the end the pumpkin was great, I actually made the font on the cricut from pumpkin carvings and the words are from street sign. When you sit the pumpkin next to a wall it reflects the words "Give Thanks".

I'm VERY THANKFUL for ALL of you who take time to read the blog. I'm grateful for all of you who stop by and say "Hi" being so far from home it makes it less lonely in this big strange city. It also reaffirms how much I enjoy my friendship with y'all. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Much Love,

Cute pumpkin idea, turned out adorable. Sorry your seeds did not turn out, they are so yummy made in the oven, cook the at a low temp next time, and stir often!

Angie, just in case you don't know, they sell roasted pumpkin seeds at WalMart. I bought mine for my fall chex mix instead of trying to do them myself. Much easier. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

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…


Feeling fine as frog hair! Now to get Miss Pumpkin on the mend, who has been hair ball hacking for five days. My poor girl! We'll I'm off to photograph some cards. I hope you all are well!


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 …
