good morning all you Glories!

GOOD MORNING ALL YOU GLORIES! (my dad used to say that to me.. well, except that he wouldnt call me all you glories.. he would just say, good morning glory. I used to like that!)
So anyways.. Good Sunday morning to you all!

I've had a fun weekend so far... out to breakfast and a little bookstore and joanns shopping yesterday morning.. I do have a magazine addiction and I spent quite a bit there.. but I'll have fun later today looking through them all! So you see Lisa Kettells "Altered ARt Circus" ? I had to have it!

Then in the afternoon my blogger flickr pal Natalea and I got together to stalk out the house of one of our flickr blogger pals who is moving from AZ to our area (and hopefully will arrive today). We had fun there.. we made a snowman, put up a sign adn some balloons which I'm sure didnt make it through the night.. it was wayyyy to windy! and left her a card. I hope she gets there before the snowman melts.. I think it was 50 degrees yesterday! though we made the snowman around 5:00 in the afternoon, so it was cooling back down to the 30's for the night. we thought that would be a fun surprize to welcome our friend to ny!

so after that, it was a little more shopping with my daughter and out to perkins to eat!
When I got home I worked on these.. which are for Kecias easter swap! I hope they turn out cute when they are done!

so today.. I will be listening to the playlist on my blog of all my favorite oldies, working on these ornies , reading magazines, and then this evening, Im going out to dinner and to a musical with my daugther and her godmother. We're going to see the Drowsey Chaperone. Before you click on this to watch it, make sure you scroll down and turn off my playlist!

this looks like it will be a fun show. A lot of singing and dancing... and thats what its all about right? I'm looking forward to it! Have a great Sunday , Im going too!! ((Hugs))!

Cute picture of you and Natalea and Mr. Frosty!

Julie said...

What a sweet welcome! I am sure that made her feel so special..

craftyhala said...

I've said the same, "Good morning Glory" to my kids, my daughter prefers,Good morning sunshine, but it's not the same idea is it? Anyway... cool snowman.

Elizabeth said...

Your weekend sounds perfect and what a sweet gesture for your friend's welcome.

Kathy said...

Love the snowman! Such a sweet idea. I have a major magazine addition too. You should see my craft room magazine shelves...I would like to say I'm ashamed, but...I'm NOT. Love your ornies. Just adorable. I haven't done anything Easter yet. I know it will just start the ball rolling to get the Easter boxes down and I will eventually be covered up in crafting and Easter and I may never be seen again! Better finish a few projects first. Hugs, Kathy

Sandy Michelle said...

You sure know how to have fun! How exciting that Jenny moved so close to you and Nat! Let us know her reaction to the snow man :) I love the egg baskets you made for the swap! Wish my dad greeted us so sweetly in the morning...

OOOOOOH!!! I had to have Lisa Kettell "Altered Art Circus" book
also. I ordered mine from Amazon and they were here when I got home from Florida. I had to open the box and look at it. hehehe. I also ordered Lesley Riley's "Fabulous Fabric Art With Lutradur" So I had two books to look at when I got home.
I worked with Lutradur a few weeks ago and loved it; then I ordered Lesley's book.

Susan S. said...
