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...

A little wake up call…

Oct 24, 2008

for my dear hub­by Alan since he would­n’t get out of bed this morn­ing… after all it was 11:30. Every time I see this I laugh so hard I cry. It’s only a few sec­onds but so worth every tear I shed from laugh­ter. Once Son­ny our Gold­en Retriev­er saw him move he tack­led him.… Alan was up for sure then. I know this is a lit­tle form of sick humor… I’m gonna blame it on all the book projects I have been work­ing on late­ly. I have 30 com­plet­ed. 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...
