I am still stuffed!

ACK, can you believe it's not full swing into the holiday season? I sure can't. My house is such a huge mess, well it's getting better now. We are decorating today, ahhhhhh the mess gets so bad before it starts to look pretty again. I just have to finish the bathroom and kitchen and I'll be done! I really want to start my Christmas cards tomorrow, so if I can get all the work done today I hope to do that. I'll get something creative posted tomorrow!

**I am on myspace now, so if your on there let me know**

Oh, where Oh where have I been??

Geesh, I thought I was on here a day ago, guess not! I have had a crazy week, work, work, work parent teacher conferences were this week along with the book fair. Friday, I had another chocolate party and Yesterday dh & I actually went Christmas shopping. Yesterday was one of those nice days. I read a little, (Kids were out) Dh & I had lunch out and we shopped. WoW, what a great day!

Ds#3 spent the night at his Uma's house, so I got up today at dum dum dum......9:30 Can you believe it? I can't I was shocked! Felt good to sleep past 6:30.

Today, we played catch up and I am still doing laundry. In-laws were here again for dinner and now I am here at 8pm, trying very hard to figure out how to clear my desk so I can work on Christmas cards! UGH, this week went fast. I only work three days this week, so we shall see how it goes!

Happy Sunday!

My son is 18, what????


I can not believe that my first born child is 18 years old today. Wow, did that go fast! This morning when I woke him up for school, I sang of course happy birthday like I do every year. He's response was, wow, I 'm 18 does that mean I don't have to go to school? NOT Nice try Kenny!


Tonight his dinner request was bbq ribs. So, we had that I gave him some hard cash (just what every teen wants) and some clothes (what every teen needs) We were supposed to go out this weekend, but he told me his buddies are taking him bowling. Well, Hey I know I would rather hang with the gang than this cooky family, so I told him we could do breakfast if he wanted! We'll see.


I told him that his future is now in his hands, and that he has to make choices for himself, but he still has to make curfew...LOL I also told him I still wake him up in the am. (I guess some things will never change!)


One down, two to go! LOL.....Well, lets see 10 years left for the one and how many for that mouthy pre teen??????? I do love my boys!!!!!

A class well done!

These are the cards Nana made at the class! Did'nt she do a wonderful job?



I have been really neglecting my blog, sorry life was a bit busy with getting ready for my class! If you know me you know I am not afraid to talk, I have no problem with that part of teaching. My problem is will they like the projects, will I forget something...etc..etc.

Well, they liked the class (all 3 people...lol) well actually I had 4 but, my mom really can't say it stunk now can she? I did not really take any pics, so I stole these pics from my mom's blog!




That is me in the all black and the tall chair! Pat, the owner is in the red sweater! I really think the class went well, everyone stayed busy and the projects flowed together! No one, was really sitting idle while others waited and that was nice. The one student was brand new to stamping, I think we may have another addict! lol
So, now that all that stuff is finished, I can work on other things...WOoo HOoo.
My next class in in January (weather permitting) and I'll be doing Arches, Atc & twinchies OH MY!!
Thanks for stopping in!

Another class card!

Her hair is not this wonky in real life!!!

Okay, I am NOT nervous about teaching. That part is easy for me. Well, I am pretty outgoing, and have spoken in front of lots of people. NO biggie...Well, I have to go up early and finish cutting the basic grey paper. It is in the store along with all the stamps and supplies we will be using in the class! WOo HOo, don't you love it when stores make sure stuff is in stock. Pat, is working very hard, and very fast at keeping the store stocked. NO easy task I am sure!



Now, this card is with Elzybell & basic grey paper, this is last years paper and the brad is from su, in the actual class we will be using this years products..! wooo hoooo

The light bulbs are small, so instead of coloring them I added stickles. What a cute touch don't you think?? Thanks for stopping bye. Don't forget to scroll down for this weeks Gothic arch. I am da' hostess!

Gothic Arch Hostess!


Good day bloggers,


This week I am again the hostess over at Gothic Arches! WoooHOoo, I chose the theme buttons. It's something we all have! I love buttons. I love putting them on my arches. This arch is used with a dress makers pattern on the bottom, some distress inks, and EP. I think I would have added more blue now that I look at it!


Thanks for playing and sharing!
