october......way too cold for me!

i do not like cold weather.....and thank goodness this weekend is a little warmer! we had to turn on the furnace this week and pull out the blankets! love the smell of blankets....however i still don't like cold temperatures!

last week was employee appreciation at MSC......we received flowers....breakfast....lunch....a fun pink scrub shirt with a breast cancer ribbon on it.....and fun nurse barbie....and fold up chairs.....ohhh....almost forgot the massage therapist that our boss brought in for individual massages! oh, what great hands he had!!!

still having fun with some fun fabric.....can't seem to get enough of making little aprons......not sure what i'm going to do with all of them......perhaps some christmas gifts......will wait and see!

world series madness......cardinals 5 texas 0........sorry...however the rangers suck!! just saying!

i love my life~!!!!

etA fishy photos

fish, falls and fun!

well.......had a good turnout for the pampered chef some fun little things....not too much...didn't want to spend a lot of cash!

i will be having a 31 party on November 4...friday night with a crop to anyone that's reading this....come on over! i will be sending out invites....however just a head's up!

okay....not sure everyone knows...however michele and mark got married and had a little celebration last night at the home of some friends......these same friends live on a right outside their backyard!!! jeff had rods and reels all ready in case any of the men wanted to just relax.........well.....20 minutes into being at the party i just had to try my hand at it...(mind you i had seen the slimy rocky edge and wondered to rex aloud if i would fall in!) after the first cast....out comes a large wide mouth bass!....i attempted to pull the hook out...and jeff came to my rescue! i just couldn't let him throw him back in..needed to do this myself and just a little too much momentum and FELL into the lake!!! damn that water was cold!!!! and ruined the cute little pink flats! not to let a little water stop me....i tried again......this time a medium perch came out hooked to my little rod!

fast forward 2 hours later and dinner is finished and well....i just needed a little quiet so i grabbed the rod and first cast...out comes another big mouth bass.....followed in quick succession with 2 more fish! i am now smelling just like that ass is frozen from the wet jeans and my bare feet are ready for amputation! more part to this i was casting the lure it got caught on the neighbors lattice fence so i climbed around to get it....and thinking i'm as sure footed as any tree climbing goat, tried to swing around back to the yard.....and shit....i fell again! one of the men watched the event and i had to lie my way through that! only to find a large gash in my right knee and large contusions on my left foot and arm!

i'd do it again in a heartbeat!!!

up at 345am...having a horrible issue with sciatica and the fall just intensified the cleaned the annex...cleaned house......all the laundry is what??? i know......i'm gonna play with paper, glue and fabric!!!!

happy sunday to everyone.........i love my CRAZY life!!!!!

thursday night....quiet night

well.....another post! can't quite believe it myself, however i've made a promise to myself to try to keep up with my blog......i plan on using some of the information for my scrapbooks!

karen burniston emailed and told me she sent the CE book. she designs all the pop-up dies for Sizzix and the CE book is made with multiple pop-ups. it's so damn cool... the banner autograph book is integrated into the damn cool. i'm hoping i can incorporate it into the joey otlo 8x8 book! wish me luck!

my pampered chef party is coming up soon! just one more week. i certainly hope it all goes well. and i am thinking of having a 31 party the beginning on November! anyone that wants to join us....please let me know! or if you know of something you would me and i can add it to the party list!

well......rex is at the barn it's very quiet at home....well....unless comet is barking at the damn tv.......and i have to be at work early in the

i still love my crazy life!

don't ruin your sign!!!

the instructions state to coat your sign with Plaid clear gloss varnish to prevent weather issues.......well.......DON'T DO IT!!!!!! my welcome sign is completely and miserably ruined!!!!! rex felt so bad when i said that....(he sprayed it for me) wasn't his fault....just bad product!!! the paper curled and turned white.....the felt flowers and leaves look like they are covered in dust from the past 3 years....

so .........perhaps may call SB, ETC in phoenix tomorrow and see what i can do! pooh!!! guess i will play with paper and glue and try to finish another CE project! however i will not add ANY sealer!!

i love my crazy life!!!

here's your sign!

played today with paper and glue.....finished my little Halloween countdown calendar. it really turned out cute! now i want to design one for christmas! wish me luck!

also finished my Welcome sign from turned out wonderful. i will go to the store tomorrow to see if i can find a frame to fit it....spray it with some gloss varnish and hang it on the front door. the varnish is supposed to help with weather issues. i certainly hope it works! i also am making a Trick or Treat and Believe sign.... need to find another border punch and will have everything done!

will try and finish some of the other Ce projects tomorrow.....i still have some from previous years...and my goal is to finish a lot of these projects....perhaps give them away as gifts... need to purge more stuff to just make it minimal. i also need help with my expenditures...i don't need any more stuff....i need to make due with what i have. sometimes that is just soooo hard for me!

okay......i do love my crazy life!!!
