Dark n Dreary Postcard

I really should post more but with everything going on around here in the last couple of months the last thing I wanted to do was post.

Daughters oral surgery to remove 10 teeth, exposure and bracket put on her tooth, brace on the top 5 teeth, spacers on bottom, ken's car accident, Kens mini neuropathy, creative escape, the list goes on...

Here's the cards for my dark n dreary swap on the ATT (all things Tim) board..

The color is really better IRL..I like how they turned out and can't wait to see what I get back!
I also had to include a couple of pics of T!m from Creative Escape '09 - He is such a kidder!

Playing w/ Ink

I was trying to do Tim Holtz's technique with alcohol ink and canned air, but my canned air was a "pump up" Tupperware sprayer, well, it didn't work!

Since I had already dropped some ink on the card stock I thought I would just continue on and see what happened.

This is the result, basically dropped alcohol ink drops on glossy card stock and poured alcohol ink blending solution on it until it "ran"..what a mess..but it was an experiment..LOL

I stamped on it with Tim's new stamps from Micheal's....I put stickles on the birds crown..
Excuse the "whitish" spot on the left of the bird ..glare I guess.

Busy New Year..

Well, this year has been off to a busy start..

Putting away Christmas decorations, keeping kids entertained on winter break and then my hubby ending up in the hospital ER with chest pain, dizziness, sweating, shortness of breath..they admitted him and he ended up staying 3 day, after running ever test under the sun, MRI, EKG's(numerous) blood draws(numerous), xrays, echocardiogram, ultrasound of his neck, chest xrays, stress test, they sent him home...they have no clue what is wrong with him!

Well, that was the 9th, here it is a couple of weeks later and he is just NOW starting to feel a little better, I am still driving him to all of his appts and to work and back these last few days, but it is utterly exhausting and stressful when a loved one is sick and you can't help them.

I am glad he is starting to get's hoping he recovers fully soon.

Proud Mama!

My daughter Arianna participated yesterday in her schools spelling bee with the top 2 spellers from each 4Th, 5Th and 6Th grade class. She did amazingly well and I was oh so proud of her. She made it to the top 2 spots and ended up 1st runner up!

I am so very proud of her, words cannot express.

Today she came home with this great trophy...

Great Job Arianna! I am so very proud of you! Keep up the great work!
Mom ;)
