Another week flew by quick…

Aug 26, 2010

Gosh my blog is tak­ing a huge hit right now. I guess I will give you a quick run through of my week. Lots of neat things going on.

First off I am super excit­ed to be a part of Paper Cow­girl next year. I was thrilled when Cindy asked if I would be the guest speak­er and a teacher at her event. This is going to be such a super fun week­end.

On a sad note my grand­fa­ther has said his good byes and has told every­one he is ready to pass on. If you would please send him com­fort­ing thoughts and prayers I would real­ly appre­ci­ate it. My Dad has been with him since last Fri­day. Thank­ful­ly my Aunts made it to ME yes­ter­day to see him. So need­less to say since Fri­day I have jumped to the phone each time it rings for updates or have been call­ing dad when I just can­not stand it and have to know how Gram­pa is doing. I’m so glad I got to vis­it with him in July. We had a great vis­it with lots of laughs.

Ans­ley start­ed her Junior year of High School, Mon­day. These years are fly­ing by way too quick­ly and the ear­ly morn­ings are real­ly get­ting to all of us as we are super night owls… always have been and guess we will not stop. As soon as 10 pm hits our eyes pop open and we are good to go for sev­er­al hours. So the 6:30 am alarm clock is a real sting when it goes off each morn­ing. And she is a train­er which means she is super busy with foot­ball stuff after school and with the games. Our first game is Fri­day. Go Titans!

I have been work­ing on a neat 12 x 12 can­vas for a very spe­cial auc­tion in Sep­tem­ber. Here is a sneak peek of what I am cre­at­ing. It includes vin­tage ledger paper and but­tons, skele­ton key, scrab­ble pieces and black  paint. I plan on adding some coarse crys­tal glit­ter and oth­er items today. I hope it sells at a great price. It will be a one of a kind that is for sure.

Artis­tic Jour­ney will be here before I know it. We have a fun tag chal­lenge going on right now. Every­one was asked to make a tag about them so here is what I cre­at­ed. As you will notice I have lots of Maya Road prod­ucts includ­ed. Bot­tle­caps, Kraft Doilies, Mini But­ter­fly, Turquoise Metal­lic Mist and White Baby Pom Pom Trim. Here is a fun lit­tle tip… you can mix any of the Maya Mists with Ges­so to cre­ate your own paint. This is how I paint­ed the bot­tle­caps. Give it a try, it is fun.

Then we added a 9 month old pup­py that is the size of a small horse to the fam­i­ly. Chief is such a sweet­heart. He and Son­ny enjoy each oth­er but Buster real­ly wish­es he would just go away. Hope­ful­ly in time Buster will real­ize he has a nice play­mate. Time will tell with this issue.

As you can see he is a big 9 month old. But talk about sweet and goofy. We love him. He has kept me pret­ty busy this week. Learn­ing to walk on a leash with­out rip­ping my arms out of my sock­ets and sit­ting for more than 1.2 sec­onds kin­da tires a pup­py out. He seems to real­ly love this sec­tion of the couch for nap time.

This pret­ty much sums up my week. And since it is foot­ball time I need to go make cook­ies for the train­ers to snack on dur­ing the Fresh­man and JV games tonight. It is amaz­ing how many cook­ies teenagers can eat. I’m just thrilled they liked them so much last year that they asked if I would make them again this year. I made cook­ies for every game last year. I guess it will be a tra­di­tion.

I think this is every­thing that has gone on here in the past week. Have a great day. I’m off to get the oven heat­ed.
