Book Chick City Challenge

I know I have already posted today....so sue me!!! I had to let you know about my very first blog challenge ever. I'm extremely somewhat new to all this but I thought it would be fun!
As I told you earlier I don't feel like cleaning and I am pretty sure my ADD has kicked in today so I got bored with the boxes I was working on and WOW is still down for maintenance..freaking Tuesdays =/ BLAH
So that leaves me to TROLL...umm search the internet for a while.

Anyway to the point. Pretty sure I haven't done this correctly but I joined a reading challenge for 2010 over at Book Chick City's Blog ...go here to get the scoop. YAY I think I just figured that one out hahaha! So if you LOVE to read check it out. I'll post after I've read my selections, or made them, however I decide to do it!

I really need my CAMERA

Hello ALL,
I am truly having fits without a camera!! Darn my youngest and his knack for breaking my electronics and never his own...There are so many pictures I would love to take to show you my Christmas shenanigans...but nonetheless it will not happen.

I had big plans for my lazy Saturday full of MY crafting, but as foreshadowed I ended up cooking for the Hubby's team and only did a few thing I had planned. I did manage to make a few tags and today I am making folded paper gift boxes to compliment them. SOOOO easy and super cute (the boxes anyway, not so much my tags)I tried to find the webpage that I scored the directions from and at least show you a picture of what I am referring to, but no luck, so sorry. But I did find this website and the directions are very similar to the ones I have been using...

click if you wanna see the site
And here is what they look like, just a little more Christmasy and glittery

I wasn't feeling really well yesterday and you know how that goes.....if Momma ain't cleaning ain't nobody cleaning, so it looks like a Copeland Cyclone went through our down stairs, I should really be cleaning instead of posting or crafting...*sigh* the heart wants what the heart wants though. HAHAHA so here's to doing what I wanna do, now if only I had the ingredients to make Mimosas I would be a HAPPY girl on a Crappy Tuesday....till next time

Sweats, Crafts & Wildcats!

It's a lovely Saturday morning with nothing on the agenda for today....just the way I like it. The litter of puppies our chihuahua Paisley had finally have their eyes open and are wriggling like little worms....cute worms, but worms nonetheless. The kiddos have commandeered the desktop so I am banished to the laptop..no WOW for me right now.
And the big screen is claimed by some beer drinking Wildcat fans....I'm dressed for the occasion, but not feeling it as of yet. Maybe it the fact that the biggest UK fan in history will be pacing and screaming at the t.v. through the whole game? My hubby's enthusiastic Cats spirit is sometimes too much for me to handle on a lazy weekend in tight quarters...those of you that know him, can completely understand I'm sure...here he is in all his glory...

So what does that leave me to do? Crafting?? I would love to try my hand at some of the awesome Christmas gift tags I've seen on so many other blogs....shall I? Twyla and Lindsey have some great ones over at Twocrazycrafters. Maybe just maybe I can use her tutorial and get some done today :) I also love these, and it's prolly more my speed, I don't have many vintage anything, but I do have an over abundance of scrap booking supplies!

There is also my Christmas quilt that I have been attempting to make for 2 years now...The fabric is very similar to this... .

I scored this from an old neighbor, she didn't know what to do with it and I had leftover fabric from making my niece Bella's quilt....traded like kids on the play ground...LOVE IT!

So we shall see how much I get done today...if anything. I'll probably get suckered into cooking for some basketball fans, but we'll see. I found some really cute ideas for pine cone trees, if I can sweet talk or bribe the boys into collecting me some, it just might happen :) I'll let you know!

Been SOO long

So truth be told I've set here for almost 2 hours now trying to figure out how to configure this dag blasted blog...Myspace, FaceBook, I'm a pro...Blogger...not so much :( It's been quite awhile since I have updated anything, not that I haven't had some things to report, but life got in the way. (So did World of War Craft) We've done alot this summer, J graduated, Ethan's in 5th grade, Izayah's in 3rd, we went to Disney World, Cocoa Beach, Mayfield, Ky and have settled into team life, and didn't move to Germany...sucks I know.

I decided this year I was going to draft a Christmas Letter of sorts to update everyone on where our family is and how we're all doing...well we all know I have the best intentions...haha. At the beginning of the year I started this blog and was really excited, we got busy, Izayah broke my camera for the 2nd time and I sort of lost interest...so sorry. But I'm back now, and think quite possibly it may be one of my New Years Resolutions....that I will try my dangest to keep. o if you can look of my spelling and lack of proper grammar then follow right along...it should be a hoot.

After I get a lil WOW time in I am going to catalog in a sort way by pictures (the ones I have saved to the comp, none new till Santa rectifies the camera issues) the last year...haha wish me luck and we'll see how adventurous I get. Until next time <3
