I just have to say thank you to all of you that stop by to visit and especially to those who leave comments! I love your blogs and I have had soo much fun getting to know such talented and creative people this past year. people who dont blog, have NO clue! they think we're nuts.. but our lives are enriched by a different kind of friendship. We are inspired and challenged by the blogs of others and the comments we recieve from each other. Joining swaps is always fun and challanging.. I've made things for swaps that I would have never tried otherwise! Speaking of swaps.. thanks so much to those of you who have joined my swaps and also to those of you I've had the honor of swapping with through other's swaps. SO MUCH FUN!!
Ok, sounds like I'm giving some corny little acceptance speech of some sort! but really.... just Thank You.. for being out there playing with me!! big HUGS to all of you!
now leave me a comment and I will throw your names in a hat and pick a winner next friday!! Please share my giveaway on your blogs.. you can even post the pic if you want.. send some peeps on over!
Have a great day!

I am feeling a bit tired out tonight for some reason... or lazy. Now that I think about it I do have things going on this weekend! tomorrow is the sidewalk sale at two of my favorite stores, I'm supposed to go there with a friend.. Saturday I have three graduation parties to go to... dont know if Im going to them though!! and sunday I'm supposed to go to the lake with some friends! MOnday.. no plans.. well... we shall see how the weekend unfolds and just what I do end up doing. for now.. I'm going to make a grocery list, and drink some water.. got a little headache going on.. need to get rid of it!
Do you like my new little bear? I just finished her last night. thats the one I took to my aunts cottage and to the ocean! Normally I start and finish them in a day.. this one took forever.. I guess I just was busy doing other things! her name is rosalea!
I'll be back!

then in the afternoon we hung around the pool sipping pina colodas! and getting some sun. Of course we then feasted on wonderful grilled burgers and hotdogs and great salads and goodies. I ate too much.. but I always say, "it takes a lot of food to maintain my figure!!"
We stopped home to get ready to go to the fireworks.. I made two huge bags of buttered popcorn to pass around and off we went. Im posting two videos here for you.. one is of a minute or so of our fireworks, the other.... there is no picture.. but you will hear me laughing! I'm sure you'll get a kick out of it!
I was laughing at this.. I know you can barely make it out, its my girlfriends son.. he was dressed in black with glowsticks sewn on.. he was a stick man.. sooo awesome in the dark though you cant tell in the picture.. but the funny part was when the the middle glow stick came undone and was dangling between his legs! boy did I get a laugh out of that!here is a better picture .. this one is actually from halloween.. (see the fallen leaves!) But the costume is the same, only this time his glowsticks were blue... anyways.. it was pretty funny!I need to share this with you! isnt she the cutest thing ever? I did a one to one swap with sweet Jillian. We swapped princesses.. I made her a fairy princess bear (posted a few posts back) and she made me the sweetest little princess of miniatures doll! she is perfect! I love her! Thank you jillian!
Speaking of wonderful gifts recieved.... look at these babies! from my dear sweet wonderful friend Brenda R who I work with. We have each other for secret pals at work.. not so secret though.. we fixed it, so we would have each other.. I made her a raggedy ann, but forgot to take a picture before I gave it to her! anyways.. arent they the cutest !? they are lori mitchell dolls, which I have quite a collection of. I love them!
OKeedokie.. I should get off this computer and get busy here somewhere. I'm hoping to get started today on something for my bloganniversary giveaway.. and also on my pinkeeps! so be sure to check back soon... heres a picture of Jasper from last 4th of July.. its jasper sam! Have a happy day!!
