Feature My Fave

I have this idea. I spend so much time reading everyone elses blogs that I often neglect mine. Sometimes I really don't have anything to blog about. I worked all weekend and really can't talk about much when it comes to that. Boy I sure did have a chance to get lost in blog land (life is tough, I know). So my idea is to feature a favorite blog. I may even feature my favorite you tube videos also. I am still trying how to do that (any tips would be appreciated). So when I see something that I just love I will share it here with you. Some things may be specifically in mind for my sister. She too is an artistic genius.

Speaking of my sister and her artistic ability, I think I will make her my first feature.

Well I posted a few To-Do items that had to be done. I wish that I was able to come back with all my tasks complete but I am afraid that I cannot. I did get half of the four things done. That counts for something right? I mailed my package off, and I spoke with the insurance company. I may not have made any more tea bag holders or had a chance to upload any pictures but I did grill out and had my BFF and her family over both nights off. I also went on nice log evening walks both nights too. I think I balanced the scale pretty good. I have a slightly large family and most of my friends do too. That makes for a lot of kids and adults in one place. I love it!

Oh but I did get my Martha Stewart punches in the mail today. Wouldn't ya figure I would get them in on a day that I have to return to work. I did take them out of the box and play for a tiny bit but I really wish that I could use them tonight. I have to work the entire weekend too so I will have to let them sit for several days before I can use them. I guess I have a few things to look forward to and I don't have to make a new To-Do list

My To-Do List for Tomorrow

I am putting it in print so I will have to hold my self accountable.
1. Take package to post office.
2. Upload Photos to Blog (of journals, tea bag holders and recent layouts)
3. Make more tea bag holders.
4. Call insurance company.

I have a package that was suppose to be mailed out weeks ago. I am so embarrassed that I will not even go into detail as to what it is for, where it is going or what it is. I have some picutes that I want to upload but never have. I have pictures stored in three different locations which can make it tricky at times to stay organized. I am making tea bag holders for my daughters Mad Katter Tea Party. I borrowed the idea from a you tube. They will make great party favors. As far as the insurance company, well that has been put off for way too long. I sometimes think that the more you put something off, the importance becomes less as time goes by.

Way Too Easy

So this is going to be a long story; here goes. Sometimes I will let the children sleep on the couch and fall asleep watching television. It used to work but it seems that anymore they will stay awake and watch movie after movie. We have resorted to turning on the food network so they dont't get as much excitement and will fall asleep easier. My little darling was fascinated by the food network the other night and I could see that he was never going to fall asleep so I changed it to the HSN.

Low and behold you will never guess what was on. Scrapbooking. That's right ladies and gentlemen, by a stroke of pure luck I managed to catch the Premier release of the Martha Stewart Cricut Cake and her new cartridges. During this time they also displayed some wonderful punch sets. Did you know that with Comcast cable all I had to do was hit "ok" to shop. I did not have to trouble myself with filling out any information; I did not even have to dig around for my debit card. It was really that easy; all I had to do was click "ok" to shop. It is almost scary how easy it is. I never ever in my life thought that I would become a HSN shopper.

I have to confess that this is the second time I have purchased something from HSN. Of course it was scrapbook related too. I will have to say that almost everytime I scrapbook or paper craft I use all items purchased from HSN. I also did some price checking and found that I got a pretty good deal. Some stuff is way overpriced. Especially with so many web stores that offer great deals. Making purchases is just way too easy.

Cricut Cuts

I made a couple of cuts on my cricut to send out to another person from the Cricut message board. I have glitter everywhere now since I used glitter paper. My darling even has specks of glitter in his beard. XD

My Creative Corner

I would like to invite everyone to see my little creative corner. I used to have an entire room all to myself but I felt so secluded from everyone else in the house. Some people might like that sort of thing but I like to be approachable for my family. So for now this is where I play with scissors!

Journal swap

I would like to share a picture of the handmade Journals that I made for my swap buddy from the Cricut message board. I have already posted a sneek peek; now that it has already has been shipped I can share.


Wow I guess I have really neglected my blog. I have been on vacation for quite some time. I must say that it feels nice to be able to sit at home and enjoy my house. I like visiting places and enjoy taking my family to different places. I am not sure that they appreciate it fully though. We went to Chicago and walked clear from the Water Tower Mall to Millinium Park. We ate at the Rain Forest Cafe and visited The American Girl store. We spent a day at Adler Planitarium also. We also went to JellyStone Campground in Eureka Mo and Six Flags. I like the cabins that we rent there. They are fully equiped which makes it easy for me. Some of the kids even had a chance to pick eggs from the hen house and ride the tractor at a relatives farm. I will have to post some pictures on my facebook. Maybe I can post some here too. Any one interested in seeing vacation pictures?
