LOOK what came in the mail yesterday from Jenn! I am in awe! You guys are all so darn talented I can hardly stand it! I just want to swap with everyone so I have a little piece of each of you!!! This is my new favorite thing in the world! My husband laughed when I opened it.. I just kept saying "OH. MY. GoD... This is so freaken cute!" Amazing.. This is amazing.. Jenn is amazing.. YOu are all amazing!! You all make me day.. every comment that gets left makes me happy! (you know people that dont have blogs really just dont understand this!!!) sometimes when Im talking to my friends and I mention blogging they roll their eyes!! and I have to say, I love flickr as much as blogging! they dont get that either. oh well..

OK.. Its the weekend.. finally..... I live for the weekend! I am going to eat some toast and tea, throw on some clothes, brush my teeth and go garage sale-ing and FLOWER shopping! PLus my little neighbor girl is getting married today! thats not till 4:00, so I definitely have time to play first! I bought a new dress.. ... I am very unphotogenic.. I should say extrememly unphotogenic.. but if by chance there ends up being a half way decent picture, maybe I'll post it. hmmm, I never did buy shoes.. I better go search my closet and make sure I have a pair to where! Or I will have to add shoe shopping to my list for today! OOPS.. and I didnt buy a gift yet either.. but I think I'll just put money in a card. oh and.. I bet my family would like me to buy some groceries too.. but that isnt happening today!

so off I go, out to play.. I'll take pictures and probably be back tomorrow!!

huggies to you all!

This is great to get to see the minitures. They are all wonderful. It would have been a fun one to do. I just don't think I can do small! I just sent out my mermaid and she grew to 36" by the time I was done! Like those sponges you buy for your kids and they expand in water!
Does your daughter know shes in blogland singing? Mine would kill me although she doesn't read my blog because she thinks I'm nuts!
Have a blessed day...

Viv, that kitty is the most darling lil' critter! I'm in AWE of people who can make teeny-tiny things! My clumsy fingers REFUSE to! I believe that kitty said she wants to live here in Houston! LOL! (I know, I know! Don't even THINK of it, right?) And I need to come back later & catch up on more of your blog! Did you have a good shopping day? How was the wedding? I really enjoy your posts 'cause you write in a way that seems as tho' you're here, sitting across from me, just casually chatting! It's RELAXING & FUN to read!

Mary Isabella said...

I want to go too!!!!!!!!!! LOL....Mary

Jennifer said...

Hi again! A Pinkeep is basically a pincushion right? Ive haven't done a craft swap yet so Ill definitely have to keep this in mind! Thanks so much :D

Hi Vivian. Your little surprise is adorable. And, I really like your little birdies that your made, the idea for a nest in a goblet is a great one! I don't blame you for wanting to keep it. I think some of would like to keep some things we create for many reasons, one, we do not take that kind of time to make things for ourselves..ever
and two, as my husband says..we are sending a part of us. Something we put of ourselves into making things. We wonder..will they accept and cherish that part of me?
Always love your headers...some day I will figure it all out.
hugs, Carol
