300th post and swaps!

Happy Friday!!!
♪♪How I love fridays.. oh yes I do.. they make me happy, dodododooo♪♪

hmmm.. just a little carried away there for a minute... but its friday.. and that happens to me sometimes!

Now I have a three day weekend.. and it starts out tomorrow at the

YOu know I love the beach! Bethany and I are going and my dear friend Sandy and her daughter, grandson and son.
I ran to the city after work today to barnes and nobles to see if they had the new artful blogger.. they didnt! but I got these!
Perfect beach reading for tomorrow!
I have to remember to go get some Good sunscreen in the morning..
I'm a little obsessed at the moment making these little guys.. I'm gonna have to make a trip to hobby lobby this weekend to get more supplies!
yes girls.. my etsy is getting closer and closer... someday soon!

And so far for the swaps we have 9 shadow boxers and 6 pinkeepers! all great creative players.. I want them all for my partners! and have actually swapped with most of them before. So think about it girls, this is going to be a fun swap! I think you can click on the picture to take you to the post about the swap if you want to read more about it... but if not, just scroll down, its the last post!

I know a lot of you are on face book, I didnt want to be, but my daughter Bethany signed me up and now I go on there for a quick peek most every day.. but I do have to say that I found my sweet precious childhood friend on there!! what a treat! she lives in CO now. We have a phone date for tomorrow morning.. (before the beach!) so excieted to catch up with her.. Its been a lot of years! so face book has earned big points in my book.. just for that reason.

this is such a hodge podge post.. bits and pieces of nothing important! sometimes I wonder why anyone stops by to read this crazy thing! Oh and guess what.. this is my 300th post! I should probably do a give away.. but I dont know what to give . I have to think about it. I'm sure I'll post a giveaway of some sort with in the next few days! But I do want to thank you all for coming to visit me here.. I certainly wouldnt be posting here for the 300th time if no one was reading them! You guys rock.. I love love love all my blogland friendS!!

ok.. should get off of here.. but first.. DId you see where I found Figgy and Franny tonight?? I couldnt find them.. didnt think of looking on the counter.. wher they know they dont belong! and there they were, the two naughties! Eating peas left over from dinner!! eiy yie yie!

have a sweet and creative weekend girls!

Congrats on your 300th posting!

I was so excited to see more kitty pictures!!! OMG I can't believe they were eating PEAS!!!! Veggie Kitties!


Kai said...

You WOULD have two REALLY fun kitty-people, Viv, because YOU are so much fun! LOL! I could just hug those two lil' puffballs to bits! And, YES! I hear cats LIKE veggies. Mine sure never did. Of course, my cats were like me - GOOFY! (But I DO love veggies.) Anyway, I am GLAD you are having a beach weekend 'cause I know you love those! And I am EXCITED about the swap! Believe it or not, lil' Ms. Virgo over here already has BOTH swap ideas drawn out on paper. I just love your clothes pin critters. WAY too darling! Finally - congratulations on post #300! Here's to 3,000 more!

P.S. i think of you each time i go into my new job...(emergency vet clinic...) they have two pet cages with kitties up for adoption...and one is a siamese with the bluest eyes..but she has WHITE FEET...hence the name BOOTS! i'll try to snap a picture!!

kecia said...

hey vivian! here's my moms blog addy,

we are having a great time. i don't think i'll have time to do the halloween swap (boo hoo) since i am doing the country living fair, it's going to take up most of my time!


Julie said...

Vivian - you are such an angel! I just got my sweet message on my blog. We are getting ready to leave. n Going to spend the night at my Dad's tonight since he lives very close to the hospital in Houston. I am queezy today...more nervous about the recovery than anything. Thankfully I had a wonderful sidesaddle riding lesson yesterday. That will have to keep me entertained for a while...other than all the sewing and crafts I am going to work on...but I will miss my physcal fun..

big hugs to you and again - thank you so much for thinking about me. Pretty sure I won't e posting until late next week.

Heidi said...

Oh those naughty kitties! Who would've thought they would be eating peas on the counter? Thanks for the laugh!

Natasha Burns said...

Sandy Michelle said...

Hey girl! I love how the clothes pin dolls turned out!! I can't wait to get mine :) I've got to find you on facebook now. I had a few reunions with highschool friends because of it myself. I never knew cats to eat peas before..hee,hee! Have a great week!

Sandy xoxo
