In approx order of haps..
remember last post stating I was not feeling well? Good reason for it, I had 2...yes 2 ear infections and a sinus infection, so the dizziness was something else other than me being blonde....
Saw a preview showing of Fred Claus (cute) with the kiddos courtesy of Michelle (thanks again!) Sold 6 of my patchwork pumpkin kits YEAH ME!!
I have decided this one needs a home..if you are local $25.00 and this beauty can be yours!
I will be posting it in my etsy shop soon, so grab it while you can...I don't think I will be making anymore.
I know there is more but my mind is blank..more like just tired...
Sunday, October 28, 2007
Have you ever wanted to play in your scrapbook room but just been to lazy? I have been sitting in here for about 1/2 hour staring at everything, maybe not lazy just in pain :(
Arianna and her dad went to the Fall festival on friday while I was cropping and they had a great time, hubby said the haunted house was amazing and poor arianna was trembling...I am glad I didn't go, I am not one for being scared although I LOVE LOVE scaring other people and watching scary movies...go figure!
16 more days until my 10th wedding anniversary..I really need to get my hubbys gift picked up, I would say what it is but sometimes her lurks here..LOL
Anybody know of a cure for nausea, the pain is making me sick.......
Til next time..I bid you ado.............................

Good for her...I myself am not the greatest in math good thing her dad is!

I thought I had posted a couple of days ago but turns out it was more :(
Yesterday WAS AWESOME!!! Nicole and I headed to the az fairgrounds and saw DAUGHTRY..wooya...he was INCREDIBLE! We had 2nd row center seats, awesome and I think my hearing is coming back....Nicole caught his guitar pick and was so excited that she got it. For her first concert she had an incredible time. She hoped over the row of seats towards the end and he touched her hand, I thought she was going to freak out! I then touched her hand, so I touched him second hand..LOL It was nice to hang out and people watch at the fair, but I was whipped after, and my throat hurt a little and my ears rang for hours. I worked on the fab Ms. Leslis kits today and took a nap. nothing to exciting...
This week the kiddo gets out early every day due to conferences, card class on thursday serendipity on friday and cre8iv, busy busy...I am also picking up an order from my girlfriends kitchen tomorrow, I will let you know how that goes..if it is good or not.
Til then folks thats it!

Scrapped at home friday by my lonesome, deborah had to back out last minute, hubby sat in the room while I scrapped and waited anxiously for me to use my bind-it-all. It was kinda fun to play with ;)
booked all my classes for the next quarter at SCE (23 of them!) and am looking forward to each and every one.....
The lottery for creative escape opens next week, I NEVER win things like that, so do I put in for it and be dissapointed when I don't get in, or take a shot and see???
I SOOOOOOOOOOO want to go and see Shermala again and to hang with Donna..we had loads of fun this year, and I am already pysched to go.
I posted a couple more things on etsy and need to do a few more, if I get picked for CE I have to pay SOON...
maybe I need to get a part part part time job to help......LOL
Chow friends, c ya around!

Only 1 item listed so far, but it takes alot to resize the photos, etc etc...this 1st listing was seriously 2 hours long since it was the first...I guess my computer classes haven't helped much yet, although I did manage to resize YEA!!!
That's all folks!
I was just thinking to myself, why when I buy something, it goes on sale the very next day? Why does the cat choose to lay in my freshly laundered clothes and get hair and dirt all over them? Why does an ulcer have to hurt so bad? Why does food you can eat with an ulcer taste so bad? How is it possible to keep a house clean on a daily basis? Why do I enjoy scrapbooking but HATE cleaning up the mess? Why does the internet choose to be a pain in the &*^$&*% when I am trying to do something?
Besides all of that randomness above, it has been a pleasant few days. Deb came over friday night, had the most scrumptoius dinner..yummm..then scrapped a few hours before she had to leave early due to sitter issues, we managed to get a few pages of our halloween book done, looking good I must say....
Today has been a lazy type day --a day of rest before the kits are unleashed...The next few days I will be CRAZY CRAZY busy with kits to do.....keeps me outta trouble I guess ;)
Dogs are getting groomed tomorrow so I will have sweet smellin pups and a chiro appt for me to start off the work week...see ya in a few days when the madness ends .....................................

I know have a new internet provider, and I am happy with it so far, at least now I can check email and the like, I never really realized how much I am on the dang thing! I actually had withdrawals the first day.
Finally unpacked all my stuff from creative escape, now all that's left is finishing the projects, if last year is an indication of my finishing lets just say that's not going to happen any time soon.
I bought somw more halloween decorations I LOVE halloween It is my most favorite, I got a 6'
animated mummy who is motion activated and groans and a mummy dog, the dogs aren't to sure about that one!
Deborah is coming over tomorrow night for my first at home crop and I am making homemade spaghetti sauce, you know you all want some, lotsa kits coming up next week too..
till next time chow chow!

I returned from creative escape on sunday, and can I just say that it was FABULOUS!!!
I left inspired and made some amazing new friends (shermala aka sugar) I miss her, who woulda thunk that I could meet a stranger and within 3 days become friends and feel so bad when she left, kinda like the sister I always wanted. Girl, I hope we can hook up again next year, you and Donna made this weekend lotsa fun!!
We (Me) are attempting to organize another crop with my CE friends, lets hope this one is more successful than the last..I have a feeling it will be ;)
I have some amazing projects to finish and to remember this past weekend...
I took pictures, but I am afraid to test this iffy internet...
I feel like creating some more Halloween fabulousness.....
And the thought o the day...What would you attempt if you couldn't fail.....
Hmmmmm if only.

I have to say first off that I have the "new" car curse, I have been bombarded (ok, maybe a slight exaggeration) with problems with new vehicles, you'd think I'd learn....
Alas I haven't. A couple of weeks ago with tooling sown sossaman near southern intersection my beloved VUE decided it would just QUIT RUNNING! I thought @*&%&$%%^$ and restarted it as I was doing 45 mph on a busy street, freaky but under control, told my hubby and he said he had never heard of that, so no biggie right? WRONGO!!! On thursday after picking up my charming little one, I had to run to deliver a flip flop album I made for Denise who had a class at SCE, proceeded to get gas since the idiot gas light was on..BTW I Hate pumping gas! Filled up across the street from sce and then headed across the street pulled into the parking lot and BAM-OOO..car shuts off...I think oh crap and attempt to restart said piece o *&^%. Nothing it just clicks...man I am ticked now! try to access famous on-star services to have them run a diagnostic and it won't work because the car has to have power to do that! not to helpful if you ask me! Finally got it started, to have it die..oh man...got it started again long enough to get onstart on the horn and the guy to tell me I have an electrical problem, really genius? I could of told you that! He offered roadside assistance and then car died...I give up, I decided to call back from my cell phone. They ended up towing it to the dealer that night, free of charge thank goodness! Friday am I call the dealer and he tells me that it needs a part they don't carry, surprise surprise...they said it would be ready monday and to leave it until then. ok I said, now what do do without a vehicle? My friend Let said they should give you a rental since it is a warranty, so I called back and he said that since the vehicle was running and driveable that I din't qualify for a rental..WHAT???? you told me not 5 minutes ago, that I should leave it for safety reasons...after a phone call by him to corporate I am now driving a Mazda 6, nice car BTW I really like it, if I didn't owe so much on the vue I would definetly trade it in, but then hubby told me if you trade it in, I am NOT loading your scrapbook stuff in it, he said don't you remember why we bought the vue in the first place? you have to much crap for that car, you can't go smaller..oh yea :(
So we had our sale extravaganza on Saturday, we had a pretty steady flow all day until aboput 2:30, she decided she's doing it again next weekend since there is still SO much stuff left. Fun Fun..at least all the hard part of setting up and pricing is already done, I tell ya that about killed me, I missed my lateniter crew and my Tally girl o the night, miss em!
I hope you all had a moment of silence for me since I wasn't there ....Today was pretty lazy for me, think I am coming down with something from working so hard, over tired I guess, tomorrow my chiropractor is back from vaca5tion, I will be there first thing in the am, and in the afternoon miss Ang will be dropping off her fly kits for me to assemble for her marvelous class this week at sce..
I watched Big Bro tonight, and can I just say how HAPPY I am that Jen got nominated, she needs to go in a bad way I tell ya, she IRRITATES me in a BIG WAY! I will be JENuinely happy when she leaves..LOL I couldn't resist.
Nicole is about 90% moved out now, we head to CA on Tuesday to pick up her trust and then she moves out wednesday, she's all enrolled in school and ready to fly the coop, I just hope she's happy, thats all I want for my kids.
Well, off to bed early early start for me in the am....Aloha!

You can't really tell on her, but she picked a glitter red..she said she really liked it when they hit the bottom of her feet. She was messing around soaking in the water and kicked the cover and water sprayed all over like niagra falls, I wanted to laugh so hard, but she did a bad thing. They told her to sit still and handed me a towel ;)
She picked a lovely shade of hot pink for me...how can you say no to a sweet face?
Then we decided to hit Tarjay for school clothes shopping and ended up with this...
yea, school shopping DONE and out of the way...I also had lunch today at crackers(first time BTW) with Jamie and Gaye, Addi and Karli, it was delish and fun to visit.
Cancelled my late niter for friday nite..WHAT?!?!? you say? yes I know completely tramatic experience for me too, but we (Let and I) are having a HUGE scrapbook closeout sale on saturday morning, and friday I need to help set up and price said merchandise...
Thats it for now, Chow Bella

Now she was going to move to CA with her great grandmother and go to school over there...then Later tonight, she has decided to move in with her friend (rent free) and do her first semester of school here, save money(that's a whole nother subject) and then relocate to CA. Well I hope she decides soon, shes making me crazy with all the indecisiveness.

Woke with a stiff neck, headed to chiro and got a much needed adjustment, still really sore though, stopped by sce to see if Heidi Lynn was ready for me to kit..looks like tomorrow for sure. I am looking forward to it!
The guy came AGAIN for the dryer spent 2 seconds saying the part was bad he had and he needs to order something else and now he says the 19Th...I have been without a dryer for 3 weeks! I called Sears and asked for a new one and she told me they have to replace 4 different parts before it can be exchanged..WHAT?!?!?! needless to say I wasn't happy, but I will have to just wait.
I watched Hell's Kitchen tonight, I Love Gordon Ramsey..he cracks me up ;) I wanted to be a professional chef, but it never happened, I ended up a personal chef instead... :)
Trying to decide on what kind of new camera to get, I want to step up from the point and shoot, but I don't know much about a camera with tons of stuff on it...I am leaning towards a Nikon D40 which is like a dslr with training wheels, but the cool pix p5000 looks easier but more limited.....decisions, decisions.
Saturday, July 07, 2007
Don't get me wrong, joey is a good teacher and I think I have got it, then I get home and the "blonde" thing kicks in and I forget everything, even the great handouts become foreign languages.
went to costco today to return the portable a/c unit I bought because my office is INSANELY hot, but alas it didn't function correctly and felt like satan was blowing hot air in my general direction....HAHAHA, so we proceeded to grab an industrial fan that would give a good monsoon a run for it's money......it has now cooled off in this room to 78 degrees, almost bearable until I start having more hot flashes....I even foiled the windows, now I can't see what is going on out in the real world from my "cave" LOL
Fridays late niter was alot of fun finished 3 projects...you say 3?!? you betcha you heard right..3..yes 3 and I would upload them but my camera batteries are dead and you will have to wait to see the lovely creations I have made this week ;)
Had a really good lunch yesterday at Rigatoni's yesterday too...had the lobster ravioli and all I can say is YUMMY!! had hubby's left over chicken Florentine for dinner, that also is very good.
Back to today, as I was coming home from class, I walked in the door and proceeded to KICK my scrapbook bag and I think I broke my little toe..OUCH! It is still throbbing all these hours later....
off to take some aspirin and rest my toe......ciao
Thursday, July 05, 2007
Arianna helped with the dishes last night, she was so funny all day running around in the house in her bathing suit (we don't even have a pool!) and saying how cold it was..when it came time to do the dishes she said it was a good thing she had it on, since she was getting wet doing the dishes...so that's what I have been doing wrong all along, I should of been wearing a bathing suit..NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Went to scrapbook barn yesterday and bought a couple things, nothing too exciting, what I wanted they were out of anyway :(
Didn't make it to mystic paper to get my stamp, I started to feel crappy, those dang hot flashes are killing me! Getting old SUCKS!!
Did have weinerschnitzel today for lunch, so NOT on my healthy eating plan, but sometimes good chili fries make the world a happier place :)
Well, til later then...chow
Tuesday, July 03, 2007
Well, they finally fixed the dryer monday and do you think I have done laundry...NOPE!! I am not even remotely motivated to do it. so after he left monday at about 1pm, I watched tv and wound ribbon from my stash onto chipboard.
Today I decided to keep arianna home from the biys and girls club becasue she had a dentist appt at 2pm and I didn't want to drive all over gilbert in the heat to get her..go ahead call me lazy, but it was 114 today!!
Good news the girls both checked out great with NO cavities...that's great, I hate paying for fillings :(
Still have some stomach pains, went to the chiropractor, but it didn't help to much, he said to sleep on my back and stay off my sides..yea, like that will happen.
I feel like scrappin but my room is a mess and I don't want to clean and then re-mess.
Another exciting day planned for tomorrow, NOTHING! Hubby has to work and Nicole is going to hang out with friends, I might head over to mystic paper and pick up a stamp I have been wanting , and stop by scrapbook barn for the 25% off everything sale, I could do some damage...hehe... other than that just chillin with the nana-nator......isn't she cute?!?
Oh and thanks for the comment b-dizzle..you rock!
