As you can see in the back ground I'm in London.

OK maybe I'm in a London state of mind?
So I haul my butt up outta bed at 5 am to see The Duchess of Cambridge walking down the isle.
Y'all know nothing about me is common, so a hat would not do.
So my hat was a crown!
It was custom made by dear little soul out in Missouri
I believe she called the crowns pattern "snowflake half taken from the design of Winter Lace"

My royal name{ just so you know} is Lady Tessie Silky of Mayfair
Classy sounding is it not?

Eight teen jewels in all and can not be replicated.
I'm told that I can preserve it on a scrapbook page later on.

OK I'm tired of being all royal that's enough. I made the crown with the thought it could go on my April lay out. I don't have much for April so I thought I should have some fun with it.

I asked rod to take my picture and this is what I ended up being able to show you

So that's it.

I hope y'all have a royal good time this weekend. I miss you. I went to the Doc yesterday and everything is healing up nicely so when it does heal over I'll come home for a visit.



ps I wanted to ask how did everyone (extended family included) fair the storms the other night ago. I hope all of y'all family is Ok.

better late than not at all

so I had some really beloved jo's and i had saved them forever so i decided to do something out of the ordinary (OK blame it on the meds) but I'm happy with how it turned out. Its going to hang out at the apartment and work into our bedroom beach theme.

This was inspired from a card I did. I'm not sure just what I'm going to do with it but its cute to me!

state of April

My my my I've been glued to hsn looking at the new bug. They have sold almost 7000 last time I checked. Was I one of them? Sure was not. While it really has some great upgrades I''m not willing to trade in the old girl for a light, mat holder, and an imagination cartridge and future wireless its not enough. If in the future I could go completely wireless without special attachments with or to my Gypsy I really would think it over. {Rod and I laugh every time I say 'gypsy" because we are gm gypsies}. One thing I didn't like was they took away the cute little cricut beep/chirp when you turn the machine on. For as much money as they were asking I think they should have offered up a circle membership with the machine. Way to much dough if you ask me then again you talking to a girl that paid 144 for and E don't ya just love coupons misprints?

In other news I'm feeling much much better. Right in the middle of fixing dinner my ummmm my spider bite decides to (don't read if your squeamish) get a bunch better. So I'm much better I wont need to worry about some doc cutting on me. The irritation and tenderness is still a problem in the car so I'm guessing I wont be home unless I see a huge improvement by Thursday. I'm going back for a check up later this week so no body worry. I'm just about finished with the pages and I'll send them off early tomorrow. They should get to BG just barely in time.

Easter was good and different. I've never been away for a place I called home on a major holiday so that was upsetting as well as not having seen my family since Christmas and well lets say the waterfall did go off a time or two this weekend BUT I SURVIVED!

Sorry I've been a lousy card poster Its been hard to create with my side being tender. I should soon be back to the regular crafty me.

I have some boats that are calling my name so if y'all will pardon my absence I'm going to sail away for today.

I know cheesy its all I had.

I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter

other inspirations not mine

I thought I explained this but I guess I didn't.....
These are all cards I found on split coat stampers and they were so sweet. Not all are "do able" but eye candy and they inspire me.


Split coast stampers also had this card and I'd like to work off of it for a baby shower.
so we didnt

baby shower invites

Again thought I posted all this bable but I didnt.....
These are test cards for a baby shower invite. I dont like any of them and still need more something. Just what that something is I dont know yet.

Mrsa me

I don't know if I said anything a while back but I had a spider bite about six weeks ago. It healed mostly leaving a small knot but I thought it was OK. Apparently it really wasn't OK and I was way to passive with the bite. Mrsa me, the thing came back on Friday morning with a vengeance. So I went to a new doc and he fixed me up. I'm ready to go with meds and everything. Apparently it was a "sick" spider so it had lots nice things to give me for trick or treat. I got all the tricks this time round.

Any how Bo has left me alone and my Easter plans still have not been made and I would like a side order of sunshine to go with my life.

In the mean time amuse your selves with this joke the Doc told yesterday

you know who Charlie Sheen is right?
Do ya know how much cocaine he uses?
(I said enough to supply the state of California)
a lot
enough to kill two and half men!

This week has been busy............

This to that or third time is the charm......

This page is what I started with. I didn't like it at all, It just wasn't right. I know, I know its not a bad page but it's not my best so it bothers me. Even though it wasn't my best it did inspire the next two pages.

As I moved on I thought it was the background that was wrong. So I kept the pink and went to a circle background. That I (again) didn't like but it inspired yet another page.

The inspiration page:

Finally I did get to where I wanted to be. I know the previous pages weren't bad but isn't this "the best"?

I forgot

I forgot to post these a while back. I put a privacy screen on the bottom page that's why you see a big circle. I will have another post later today.

My problem this morning?

Is the box of Krispy Kream doughnuts I allowed myself to buy this morning.

They call my name.

Yes I did see the news articles if any of you are wondering.


I haven't really been up to sharing what happened a few weeks ago when we visited because I don't want to. I'm not going to tell you the story just the end result. The end result is about two weeks ago Rod and I started considering a permanent move to Lansing Michigan. Sigh.

After Fridays news what do I think?

I don't know what to think anymore.

Do I know whats going on?

Apparently not.

Do I have any ideal what we are going to do?

No not really.

With that out of the way enjoy some cards.

Yes I know they are not Easter. Easter is being difficult.

So you get a mostly beach themed because that's my happy place, and right now I'm all about going to my happy place.

Helloooooooooooooo doughnuts!

Beading hearts

Beading alert this is as crafty as it gets today.
