Weekend Scrappin'


This weekend I scrapped with the "Westside Scrappers" and although I didn't get much done, we had fun and were able to be creative. This is the latest of the effer dares...#14. The theme was womanhood and the first thing that popped into my head was this picture of my fabulous new shoes. The journaling reads "Womanhood is fabulous shoes". Below are my scrappin' partners Nikki & Laura...thanks for the company ladies! It was fun.

Kid Stuff...Retro David

Ok, as most of you know, I like to participate in the "effer dares" on www.twopeasinabucket.com" Well, this was effer dare #11 (yes, I realize it is late). The dare was to pick a funny photo of you, your child or your spouse and list five random memories or tidbits...here is my stab at the dare. I really had fun with it and I think it is my favorite yet.

Brew it up!


Well the road trip mini vacation book class was a big hit. This week we will be making a mini book out of coffee filters...yes coffee filters. You just have to see this one to believe it. IT IS PRECIOUS!

We will use fab papers and yummy ribbons to make this funky, retro, totally fabulous book! I can't wait!

Beading Frenzy


















The race is on. What race you may ask...well the race to replenish my stock and make more, more, more for my upcoming craft shows. I've only had one of my four shows this fall and I am all ready wiped out! Here are some of my latest creations.

BOO!




















And so the Booing begins. Tomorrow I will beging the booing tradition that a dear, former co-worker started a few years ago at my old job at P&N. Thanks Robyn for the inspiration! You see, you boo two people at your work and leave them a candy care package, a halloween poem and instructions on how to continue the booing and it sort of takes on a life of it's own. It's really fun to see how the tradition evolves and how creative people get. This is my boo mini buckets!

Beauty Queen...




















Ok, so she wasn't the queen. But my sweet niece Mya is the queen in our hearts. This Sunday she was in the Acadian Festival Pagant and placed as runner up in her age group. Not bad little one...not bad at all!

Damaged Goods...














Yep, the Mazda is now damaged goods. Here she is...my sad, sad car. In case you are wondering what happened...apparently I "disreguarded a red light" (at least that's what the ticket said). You see, I didn't mean to run the red light...really. Well, none of that matters now. The fact is that I am just not fit to be an adult, hell, I can't even balance my checkbook! I just don't want to be a grown up anymore!

Fall Is Here!














I don't know what I love more...the decorations, the cooler weather, the craft shows or the thought that the Thanksgiving spread is just around the corner. Today I brushed off the fall wreath and hung it for all the world to see. HAPPY FALL!

Prego Anyone?

There she is on all her pregnant glory...Sugar Butt herself...my dear friend, LINDSEY! Yep, she came into town as a Houston evacuee of Hurricane Rita and left with a whole heep of darling Gap baby clothes from the outlet...go figure! Leave it to Lindsey to make the best of a bad situation.

Saturday Fun















After a very successful craftshow (sold lots of jewelry!...woo hoo!), we went out for a night on the town. But we were angels. Promise.
