Who had fun at the crop?

I had so much fun at the crop hosted at my house last Friday night. We had a full house!! Here's what I did for their challenge: I took plastic baggies and filled them with little embellishments (silk flowers, brads, buttons, ribbons). Then I told them they had to use something from my paper scraps and one die cut item. I was hoping to spur people into thinking of using up their scraps and also to get them to learn how to use die cut machines. They could make anything- an altered item, layout or card- whatever their creativity led them to make. At the end of the evening, we took a vote. What do you think of their projects? Kara was the big winner (of course, how could she not be since she scraplifted my layout? hee hee!) In case you're wondering, no, I did not vote. The girls did and I made a stipulation that they couldn't vote for themselves. Yeah, Norma, that means YOU! Ha ha! Dani, I didn't get a pic of your card. Email me a photo and I'll post it here. Okay, Debbie. No excuses next time! Quit gabbin' and get to work!

The barn is DONE!!

Eric made shutters for the barn window. It is officially done. I guess if worse came to worse, we could always move into it since it's plumbed for a toilet, sink and shower!
Doesn't this look like a nice big place to have a crop???

Here we are in the Newspaper

Finally, I scanned in the newspaper clipping of the big grand re-opening of Scrapper's Alley in Washington, MO.

Happy Birthday Honey!!

My honey bunny turned 34 on Thursday. Here's the birthday card I gave him. You'd think I'd hand make him a card. I usually do, but this year I found a card I couldn't resist. The inside says, "Another year lost". Ha ha. Ok, now everyone knows I have a twisted sense of humor.

Another Weird Thing

Yup. You guessed it. I remember another weird thing about me. I am PETRIFIED, TERRIFIED of those big, black, hairy, disgusting, flying, straight from the pits of Hell- ROACHES!! You know, the ones that grow to monstrous proportions that live in Florida and Texas. I've seen them up to 3 inches long and they have these long hairy antennae and legs and they have wings so the actually fly! YUCK!! I will kill somebody to get away from one. LOL! One time when I was prego with Ryan, I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom (as most pregnant women do). I didn't want to wake anyone so I kept the lights off. While I was sitting on the pot, I felt something bite me on the booty. Half-asleep, I brushed it off thinking I was just hallucinating. Curiousity got the best of me, so I flipped on the light and lo and behold sitting on the toilet seat was one of those big disgusting roaches. It actually took a nibble of my booty!! Needless to say, EVERYONE in the house was woke up after that!

The weirdest thing about me

I can't believe I forgot what the weirdest thing is about me! The weirdest thing about me is that I don't wear deodorant! LOLOL!! I never have worn it. I think I'm ok b/c nobody's ever told me I stink. If I did stink, my mom would be the first to tell me (she doesn't mind telling me I'm fat all the time). Ha ha! I've borrowed shirts from friends before where their pit smell transfered to my underarms, and boy! I couldn't stand it. It made me sick to my stomach. So I think if I smelled, I would know it. Ha ha. I just thought of something. Just the mere fact that I'm talking about this makes me weird. So I guess that's another weird thing about me.

5 Weird things about me

My friend, Kim has tagged me.

The life and times of Kimberly

The rules:List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. Tag 5 friends and list them. Then, those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people.

I make up silly songs for each of my kids and I sing the songs to them all the time.

I have a fetish for baby clothes. I could outfit a small country of toddlers with all of Connor's clothes.

I have frightening thoughts and worries about my kids' safety that have actually brought me to tears.

I think my feet are ugly and for the longest time wouldn't wear open toed shoes.

I talk to myself, all the time. Ha ha!

Now I am tagging:

OMG!!! Debbie won a CRICUT!!!

I can NOT believe Debbie won a Cricut machine! Michelle, owner of Scrapper's Alley in Washington personally invited us to her weekend long grand re-opening event. So we went on Friday to the big gala and Michelle even insisted we be included in her photo for the newspaper! While we were there, Michelle entered our names in a drawing to win a Cricut machine. Debbie got the call last night that she was the big winner!! It's so ironic that Scrapper's Alley was the birthplace of Me and Debbie's friendship. Way to go, Deb! I'm so happy for you!!!
