I just have to share this little story! My mom (pat), had to go to her boss's wedding yesterday. He's got more money than he knows what to do with. (I could think of a few things he could spend it on...lol) anyway, she kept saying what do you get someone that has it all? I said to her. "well, give a donation to cards for heroes in his name". DING DING DING!!! What a great idea. If you have that someone on your list donate money in their honor. So, that is what she is doing, she put the brochure in the card along with the amount she donated.! She was telling her other friend about it, and they now want to donate too! SO, hopefully that will help Sandy, out with Holiday shipping!
So, that is it for today, I think I'll take a little nap before work! (Yawn)

Mom & Dad Goldberg, got me wii fit....WOO HOO WiiFit
Dh got me a gift card for a new tattoo! woo hoo
& ds#3 got me an itunes gift card...now, that was all on Sunday....so, i'll get pics up soon.
Thanks to all my friends who thought of me on my special day. When I turned 30 I hit a bad point in my life, I guess since NO ONE showed up to my surprise party..surprise to me. I plan to break that funk this year, heck it's been 5 years It's time to move on don't you think...lol
So, I am gonna try to forgive the hurts this year, count the blessings and move on! Good idea...YUP!!! Easier said then done, so if you pray, pray that I can live in the now instead of in the hurts of the past. That is my goal for this year. I know I can pray my way into a better me! and with the help of my friends, my stamps, My God, and my family I can do it!!!!
Have a fantastic day!!!
Dawn the 35 yearold birthday girl!!!!

Ohh, This week went super uber fast. I had meetings and work and lots of other crazy things goin' on! UGH...SO, I have had little time to create. Well, until yesterday, my demo and good friend Sue, had an open house for World card making day, she had 17 projects and food, and snacks and cake & candy & it was such a blast.
I just love this project, it's super easy, and I just adore the way they turned out! This is done with all su products, (except her earrings & nose ring) Of course I wanted my girl to be a bit punk, and she does look it, he looks like a shaggy beetle to me, you know as in Abby road beetle, not bug beetle!This was just the funnest! Hope you like! Have a great day!

When I found out they were comming down on the 5th (Sunday) I really had to pump it up, by typing get ready to rumble to my mom over im, and funny stuff like that! On Sunday, I actually said a bad word in front of my dad, when I told him I was gonna open a can of Whip A$$!!!! He wanted to get the soap!! ROFL, (this is the guy that chased me through the house with pliers trying to pull out my tounge ring years ago!) I never knew my real dad, he died when I was 20, and I still never met him. Gene & LInda have been in my life for over 10 years now, going on 12 I think. You would never ever know that I was not raised by these two....We are a lot alike...LOL Not, only that but I can't imagine my life with out them. I asked my real mom once if she cared or was upset with our relationship, and she said no that they give me something she can't and when she lived far away they supported me not only spirtualy but in many other ways, dad & Sis (erica) taught me how to drive...Oh what fun that was at 25...LOL
Here are a few pics of the fun! Now, he brought some of his games and my mother in law (Cate) and my Mum (linda) played this game where you ride on cows and jump hurdles, I hav not laughed so hard in a longggg time, it was the funniest thing ever. You can see by the look on there faces below they were having a blast!
So, while we played my hubby & dad in law, peeled potatoes. There was a lot of abuse being thrown at them, they are not the best peelers, but the meal was wonderful, hot roast beef, fresh hot rolls, mashed taters MMMMMMmmm good!

What a nice Sunday, we had here at my house! While the men went and hit some golf balls at the range, the women stayed here and made cards for heroes, for Christmas. We made 20 cards. WOW, in about 2 hours, that is pretty good. Once we got going it went fast, next time I'll have it all ready where we can cut, glue etc...Here are a few pics from our event. Tomorrow I'll share photos of the other fun things we did!

I am so hyper this am, wonder if it's the diet Pop??? Today is world card making day. What a great way to celebrate our love for all things inky!
I had a great Friday, My dh & I took the drive up to tuckerton to see the new stamp store that is opening On OCTOBER 18, I'll be there bright and early with hopefully a van full of stampers!
Her shop is adorable, it's colorful, and classy. I can't wait to see it fill up! The first thing that caught my eye was something I have been wanting for a while.....Wonder what it is? Well, lets see it's BIG, it's Red and it's not Clifford the big red dog..
I got an atg gun..wooo hooo, Okay now don't let the price scare you, I did a little calculation. The gun is very costly, but in the long run you save a ton of money. Right now I pay 2.99 for 18 yards. with the atg you pay about 1.19-2.00 for 36 yards. You do the math. I think it's a better deal, and personally for me the waste is a LOT less, only one small pc of plastic to throw out, and for me that is important.
2pp's and is in full swing, go over and check it out!
Oh, and tomorrow my MOM & DAD are coming down for a visit. They are not my real parents, but to me they are about the best thing in the world. I never knew my real dad, so Gene Is the closet thing to a real father I have ever had. (other than Jesus) NANA, is one of the kindest most beautiful women I have ever met in my whole life. She welcomed me and my children in to her home when I was a single mom. I am gonna start to cry so enough about that. SO, she and I are going to be making Christmas cards for the heroes, while Dad takes ds#2 to the golf course. Should be a wonderful day, My mother in law is coming over too, and after all that we are all gonna have Sunday dinner, roast beef, mashed taters and a yummy veggie, with cake and ice cream for dessert...(Erica, don't you wish you were here now...LOL)
I miss my sister, this week has been a little hard for me. Erica, followed Gods lead and moved her family to Nashville, it's been a struggle for me to see her leave, and I know it's where she belongs, I was not sure for a very long time about her choice, but now knowing it was Gods' will has made that easier. Okay, here are my pics.....Enjoy your day!
This is a super quick and easy card today. I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
It's been a while!, okay, a long, long while. I can say I still make cards, I just have been so busy with life and sadness and all kind...
Ya, I have a love for these fun little guys.
It's been a hot minute. I will be super real here, I was sick, very sick for a long time. I finally got help. I was diagnosed wi...
