Winter Blues

Well it seems like I've let my blog fall to the way side again. I figured I better post before ya'll think I fell off the face of the earth. I have pics to put up, but I've been feelin really blah. Well now I know why, not only did Aunt Flo visit (TMI I know), but I have a sinus infection, I think. My head is soooo fuzzy and throbbin' right now I can't even think. I haven't even felt like stampin/scrappin :(

I'm so lost about my goals for this year. I know this is gonna be my year, but if I don't get my butt in gear it'll end up like last year. Here today, gone tomorrow. I just don't know what I wanna focus on. I'm with Mary Kay, but for the first time in my career I will be inactive. Most just aren't buying. I'm guessing it's from the economy, but then again we have other consultants in our unit that are makin it so maybe it's me. I'm not the pushy type. I have joined SU, for the most part to get the discount and do a Stamp Camp here and there. Basically a hobby consultant.

So as I sit confused and ya'll are gonna think I've lost my mind I went to a Pampered Chef Show. I've been using the same consultant for at least 3 years now. She's tried and tried to get me to join and I didn't want to. I am obsessed with PC! But there commission just isn't great, to me. Well she started talking about the other things PC offers and I was like WHOA! So I said FINE I'll do it! I'm really really excited! I don't think I've ever been so excited about a company before. Basically because I truely believe in and love the product. Who knows where I'll end up, but if anything I'll have a kit (which I already have most of) and some extra cash. So we'll see....stay tuned to my soga lol

Better :D

Ok, I know what you're saying now (if you read my post below), who's calling who anal? lol I may just change that beige paper on the one I did before because this one is MUCH better.

A card a day....

Keeps the crabbiness away lol. I know that don't rhyme, but I couldn't think of anything else. I have so much fun making cards. This card came from inspiration from a card I made at Lynn's Stamp Camp. I was gonna do the vertical image mounted on cardstock (see below), then this idea came to mind. I wasn't sure where to put the rest of the words so I put it at the bottom of the beige paper, which I'm not sure if I like. I know the blues don't match for all you anal people, but ask me if I care lol. And yes I really did make the
other card, like I said it was from Stamp Camp so when you're told what to do and how to do you, you really can't screw it up. Oh crud! I just came up with an idea where to put the words. UGH!! I guess I can just make it again lol

So I've discovered that Stampin is a form of therapy for me. I've had a stressful day because catty women irritate the heck outta me! I really like this card and I have no idea why. I think beige is my color though lol. OH! And I've also added a pic of my son cuz he's my therapy also except right now he's sleeping. He makes so many funny faces, I love it!


WOW! I'm really hating my camera right about now. There must be something I'm doing wrong cuz pictures of people do not turn out so crappy. It's been a few days and I've done a couple cards. I got some new punches that I'm hoping I'll be able to play with today. And oh yeah, I'm sending in my contract today for SU. WOO HOO!

The pic to your left is from my stamp set I won at an auction. I have gotten a few more ideas since this card just haven't been able to put them on paper yet :)

The card to your right is my new Bella. Frizzybella! I love her I dunno why, but I do

I used purple sparklies for her purse, that was fun. I don't like my two way glue pen though cuz too much comes out. I wanna get that glue stamp pad. Man I'll use that thing to death lol. I love new toys :D

OOOH! I'm so excited! I belong to a shopping group on yahoo and I bid in an auction for some Stampin Up stuff. Well I won-woo hoo! I got my package today and man was it worth the $20 I spent. I got a Bordering Blue ink pad, All About U stamp set, beige ribbon (dunno the name-Kraft???), some punched images and Accents & Elements. I had to hurry up and make a card before the baby got up so this is what I did. It's still kinda plain, but I like it. I love neutral colors anyhow. I planned to use some powdered blue stars I got, but couldn't find a good fit for them with this card. However, with a little Stampin Up supplies I'm movin' on up (singing the theme to the Jeffersons lol).

Ma Masterpiece

OH! I LOVE makin' fun stuff like this. I thought about this for the kids at the Daytona 500 party. I think they'll LOVE it :)

Got Wine?

Sorry about the poor photo quality, but that's my camera for ya. I got to sneak this one in yesterday while baby took a 20 minute nap lol. I'm steppin' up though, I got GLITTER! Woo Hoo. I soooo want to be a SU demo, but I'm afraid because I suck so bad at this stuff. But I'm thinkin' if I do sign up, it may even help me.

Daytona 500

I can NOT wait until Sunday's Daytona 500. Have ya'll ever been to or threw a party before? What did you do as far as playing games? Did you do that? What kinda food did you make? I'd love to hear your creative ideas.

OH! And as far as what did I do productive wise with stamping/scrappin uh....I bought some things lol. Glue, glitter, ink things like that. I will hopefully be able to do something tomorrow depends on if my husband feels nice enough to get a break from the baby. Today he's not feeling so nice. GRRRR!

Blah Blah Blah

YIKES! I just noticed it's been over a week since I've posted. I must be busy you say? NOPE! lol I couldn't began to tell you what I did last week. It certainly wasn't stampin/scrappin or bloggin. I have a 12 week old if that helps. Man, I am having such a hard time with getting him to sleep on his own. I think 75% is me though. Last night I finally put him in his bouncy seat for the night (he has reflux so he can't lay flat just yet). I was up every two seconds when his breathing would change. I nearly drove myself nuts! If ya'll knew what I went through to have this baby you may understand, but that's another talk show.

I did pick the PIF winner though. It's Valerie! WOO HOO!!!!! Watch for your package :D I just received a PIF from Aura the other day. A TON of stamped Bella images. Thanks sooo much! I can't wait to get creative with them. If there is such a thing as creativity in my bones. Wait! There is, I've just yet to find it ;)

I'll try my hardest to get something done in the next few days to post. What's a stampin/scrappin blog without images, right? Ta ta for now peeps

PIF Anybody?!?!?!

I'm so new to all this Stampin/Scrappin lingo and when I seen this I asked my friend Dawn (please be patient with me while I learn lol) about it. After 20 minutes of trying to get me to get it, I DID!!!! I thought it was a great idea so I've decided to give it a try. I will pick one person this week to PIF (Pay It Forward for others that are new ;) ). Because I've discovered Bella's and LOVE them, actually I'm addicted. I want to know what is your favorite Bella?

Beates Challenge

This is a challenge my friend Dawn told me about from Beates blog so I thought, what the heck I'll give it a try. Besides, how will I learn anything new if I don't try, right? So when I seen the layout I almost freaked because I didn't think I had any ribbon. Then I remembered I saved this lime color ribbon "just in case" I needed it lol. So then I built my colors from there. This card is so spring like and makes me want summer here. We got a ton of snow here in Michigan last night and this makes me feel a little hopeful. I probably won't win, but at least I can say I tried.
