Howdy do!


I had a crazy busy day today, and I'll be honest, it's nice to be busy, after being out of it for a month. Still healing buttttt it's getting better. (yes pun intended)
My day started at 4am, when I had to go pick up Kenny & his date Saundra from the prom, this is their third prom together, they are really good friends, and have known each other for years!
I'll post pics soon, I gotta upload them. So, I was there last night till 11 setting up post prom, so I was tired. Then it was opening day for baseball, and a injured soldier from out town threw the first pitch...very cool.
then it was off to the zoo for our earth day celebration, then it was back to the field for baseball game, I was stuck, I mean I was doing my duty in the kitchen, I cleaned and served...who cleans that place..ick...LOL
so, now it's 8:30 my house is a nasty disgusting mess, I am beat, my kids have sunburn ( I did buy organic, natural sunblock today) and I have 10 atc to make before 10 am tomorrow. ack...
I am taking a copics class tomorrow, 2hour drive round trip...so that will be my nice quite time..LOL
so, in honor of my hectic day I give you a card that I would love if I drank..LOL
Image was rak'd, I used su circles in the background to match my paper! Fun card!

Well, Hello!


Howdy bloggers,
What's up everyone, tonight is my sons Sr. Prom, wow I can't believe it, I went and picked up the tux and flowers (the flowers are NOT what I wanted..grrr)
I made this card as a thank you for my office for the flowers and stuff they got me while I was out sick for 4 weeks. Can't believe I was out that long, it did not seem like it at all, time stood still those few weeks, when I was really really sick!
So, when It rains it pours...LOL, this was colored with copics, and the image is mft!

Happy Earth Day!!

Happy Earth Day everyone,

I love today, you know my mother was at the first Earth day, I can't believe I'm into the earth more than she is now, although I am getting her back into it.

Did you know SUN CHIPS, are trying to help the environment, by the year 2010 all their bags will be 100% compostable, I got a sample bag to put into my compost to see if it really works!

another tip, plastic silverware, we use it for what 5 min and it stays in our landfills for more than 5,000 years, I will now carry my own, and just wash it, I will admit I have plastic wear but we wash it, I just don't have enough of the real stuff for big family gatherings...So, we wash and reuse!

When we come home I'll do a bigger green post, I just wanted to say..

Happy Earth day!!!

Thinking of you!


Good Monday morning folks,


I am heading off to work today, for my hopefully first full day in 4 weeks. Wow, has this stupid surgery turned me upside down! ack


I am not sure who makes this image, it was in one of the image swaps I was in. I colored it with copics, I don't have the blender yet, I think it will help with blending the flowers, I take a class this Sunday with Heather Meason, from a muse. She happens to be the daughter of Pat, who owns One Little Spark, the stamp store I teach out! WOo HOo!


So, enjoy!

So, he brought her here for the day. Boy, my boys were shocked it was soo funny they had noooo idea!

This past week, I've had good days and bad, but I managed to color some images and put them together.

So, here is my Bella card and a pic of my Hannah girl painting.. She loves art just like me!

Birds of a feather card!


Hello all,


It's been a pretty hard 3 weeks here. I'm still not 100%, maybe more like 40%. I tried to work yesterday. I worked like 4 hours and let me tell you I felt as if I worked 12...ouch!
Today, I am trying really hard to sit and stand a little, my best position is laying flat on my back. I am getting really sick of laying in bed, so I gotta get my body used to sitting and standing. I have to say it's not easy.
So, Here is a little card I made. It's just with scraps and stuff, but I really like it. It's different.

Happy Easter everyone!

I really hope you all have the most blessed day ever. I can't believe it's Easter already, the year is flying bye!

My boys were up early, well 2/3 I let the oldest one sleep, no point in waking a teenager they are grouchy enough! LOL

My middle son, had a hard time finding his basket, he says it's always so easy, so it was hidden in my paper recycling bin, good one huh! Took him some time to finally find it!

Why we celebrate Easter!

If you don't want to hear preaching, you might as well just pass this post bye today!




My husband, found this video on utube, it's an amazing song, and the video uses scenes from the movie "the Passion of Christ".
I honestly believe no matter how much it hurts that every CHRISTIAN should see this movie, by the end of the video, my husband and I were crying. He is not much of a cry er, but sometimes it's needed.
I look at the images of Christ being struck and tortured and nailed and my heart just breaks, those could have been my friends beating him, my neigh boors, those people chanting could have been me. I nailed him to that cross, my sin, my bad self. BUT, you know what he forgave me, he suffered that for me...Why, I'll never fully know that. I sometimes need a good dose of reality, here I am belly aching about money and my pain, when Jesus is still being nailed, still just wanting me to wake up and say "hello" boy, what have I been doing sitting here idle for so long.
God, does not want us to sit around and just wait for stuff to happen, sometimes that may be the case, sometimes we may be told to sit be patient and wait, but this today is not my day.
I am telling you now, from my life to save yours, that if you have not accepted Jesus Christ, as your Lord and savior you are missing out on something super, you are missing out on a love that you will never know.



It's one of those things, that I fought for a very long time. I avoided "church & God" like the plague, I thought church meant something so different than it really is. Seek it out, you may be surprised at what you find.



There is a book out called the shack, read it, and when bad Christians happen to good people!



so, I'm done now. I'll post some things tomorrow!

Over the hump!

Well, Hello bloggers,

Let's just say I've had a pretty bad week. I wound up in the hospital begging for morphine. I was not in good shape.

I was released the same day and after another 24 hours of torture took the turn and am starting to feel a bit better.

I went to doc today, still soft foods and liquids can now do soup with no meat and yogurt, eggs woo hoo.

I am off the heavy pain killers and hope to stay off, I am very very very very sore, but not at a 10 any longer..woo hoo Those days of pain at 10++ were not good. He did give me a sleeping pill since I have not slept if quite a while.

So, soft diet rest of the week, stay off my butt and I should be back to work with no problems on Monday..THANK GOD... I don't miss work, but I miss my friends.

So, I have some thank you cards to make, so hope to have something more over the weekend.

Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts!
