We had to interrupt this Blog.....

For my latest "for hire" job...
I used our new Game On papers from CTMH...and a lot of assorted CTMH sets for the inspiration sayings.
Cricut alphas for the names on the front.

Eye Candy!

Don't ya just hate it when someone else finds something fun and cheap at their Michael's and then you have to drive to every single one within a 20 mile radius and't happenin?
Well, these precious pups came from all the way up no...not Northern California...not Oregon, and double nope not Washington...yea... farther...and farther....
All the way from freekin CANADA!!!
My friend Pammie loves me, eh?

Art de Pico and muchos gracias! award! I am so not worthy...but my CTMH cyber friend Kathi must think I am!
(*snort* guess we got her fooled, eh?)
So in the tradition of Art de Pico and according to the guidelines, I am bestowing this same honor on 5 who have truly inspired me with their art (aka awesomeness) AND longtime friendships...
Alisha, Tresa, Tracy, Susan, Erin
Now don't get me wrong...there are UBbers of fan-TAB-u-lous artists and crafters I admire...
but when ya can only choose 5IVE!

Have a GREAT evening!

Mother's Day

You know you've done your job raising a daughter well when she comes over on Mother's Day even though she's still recovering from food poisoning (of which you did not cause)

You know you've grown as a loving, accepting mother when she doesn't take the weird thing out of her lip, or puts on some make-up for the photo opp.

Daily Grind...but TGIF!

wish it were something fab-u-lous like a Starbucks, but not so.
Just checking in...not much new here...just the daily.grind!

Can't believe I didn't have anything to say all week, though (what? me speechless?)
I had a fantastic opp to job shadow for what I think would be a perfect fit for me...
we'll see if any openings happen then if I am as worthy as I think I am!

Weather here has been awesome...slightly warm sunny dayS AND will make the Race for the Cure a breeze (if I make it)

Hope to take custody of Mom for Mother's day and do brunch with Haley.

This was my Mother's Day Gift; (not one, but TWO)

Now on to remodeling AGAIN to get it up on the walls!
