12 Days of Christmas…

Oct 27, 2008

I have decided to hold a month long event of holiday crafting starting November 1st. I will post three tutorials each week, recipes for some of my tried and true holiday baked goods, holiday quotes, decorating ideas, templates, downloads and anything else holiday related I think of. My popular “Monsieur Hiver” will be included as a project as well as another little cutie. Hint: Jingle. These ideas will be exclusive on a private site and the cost will be $19.95. I will keep everything available on the private site until December 15th. After that they will be removed. So if you are interested in joining in on the fun be on the look out for the 12 Days of Christmas link. Alan is getting everything set up now so as soon as it is...

But honestly, my sister and I laugh so hard we can hardly breath. Have a great...

Homecoming in Texas…

Oct 3, 2008

WARNING… very, very, very long post about 2.5 days in my life. Centennial High School has their homecoming game tonight. If you live in Texas you know all about the MUMS! Those of you that do not, well… girls and boys wear them… girls have these big honkin things pined to their shirts that hang almost to their ankles and boys wear a smaller version around their arms attached to a garter. Well Ansley and her boyfriend Taylor aren’t going to the dance (decided to just hang out instead) so I wasn’t really sure how all this mum stuff worked. So I asked Ansley last week to please find out for me ASAP as I needed to know the garter etiquette. Well she found out for me all right… TUESDAY night at 11! I...

A bunch of this and that…
