Flavored Tootsie's ~

I don't remember flavored Tootsie Rolls when I was a kid, just the chocolate ones, but I sure do like the vanilla flavored ones now!  Since my mojo is NOT awake this morning, I'm showing you a little treat bag we made last weekend at yet another fantastic Close to My Heart party.  Thanks Ronah for another great time!

All products Close to My Heart....duh!!  Haha!

Old School ~

I wish I could have learned to type on a cute typewriter like this one instead of the old klunkers in high school we had.  Of course we couldn't wait to move on to the electric ones, ha,ha ~ wow were those the days way, way, way before computers! I do remember amongst the sea of girls in my class the one cute guy that was in there tho...now that's a good memory!

Coffee Take 2 ~

Coffee on a Saturday morning is never a bad thing, so I made some of these for a friend who asked for them.  I made the originals back in September of last year, which is hard to believe it's been that long ago already.  It was fun to made a few more of one of my favorites too!

One Simple Word ~

I used some things on my desk today, and some inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest, to create a card for a friend in the hopes that it will be alright as a sympathy card...what do you think?  Sometimes there are just no words, but this one word is stand alone powerful I think.

What's Poppin'? ~

When I saw this sentiment over on Create with TLC, I knew the perfect Bugaboo image that I had in my craft vault to use.  I knew it would come in handy one day!

Camera update...
I shopped around, which my heart was totally not into at all. I mean seriously I'd much rather be at Michael's or Bed, Bath & Beyond, if you know what I mean. I encountered some snippy little you know whats along the way who tried to tell me how old my camera was (it's 5 years old), and how the fact that I have an iPhone don't I know that it takes so much better pictures?  They were like lady you're wasting your time finding a battery, which is what most everyone tried to tell me I needed.  I really wanted to ask if they talked to their mothers in that tone, since I was old enough to be one of theirs.  I came home and found one online and it should be here in a few days or so.  I paid more for shipping than for the dang battery, and fingers crossed it is what my little silver dinosaur needs! So you've got another iPhone pic again today, which as far as I'm concerned looks like doodoo quite simply, at least to these old eyes or maybe I'm just being stubborn at this point, haha!

Happy Monday!

Cameras....

Camera shopping will be part of my day today, although I won't be topless like this little lady, haha!  Yep, another phone pic for you today that doesn't make me so happy, sorry about that.  This one looks a tad bit better, but still not great. Love her earrings tho!

Happy Saturday!

Hey there Tiger ~

Do you have a craving for Frosted Flakes now?  This
handsome guy's grin makes me smile, a little bit anyway.

I've got a camera that doesn't seem to want to work, hence no post yesterday, and a cell phone pic today.  I'm not a happy camper, but fingers crossed tomorrow I'll have something better for you!

Happy Friday-Eve!

BFF's ~

The challenge over at the Catered Crop is all about your
BFF's; your friends; your Gal-Pal's or whatever you call your circle of divas.

I dug out (literally) these stamps that are 5 years old that I'm using for the first time, which is another issue we'll discuss at a later date, and they seemed spot on for it.  I decided I'd be the one in the middle with the bottle. Who needs a glass?  So classy, I know...

A Comfy Chair, a Book, and Coffee ~

This is me today on this glorious and fabulous Monday!  I'm taking an additional day off of work after a long holiday weekend and making it just one extra day longer for myself.  I don't have a poodle, but my little 8lb fur-baby will be right next to me today, just like this one is!

I LOVE the digital images at Ladybug Crafts Ink, so when I saw that they were sponsoring the Sketch Saturday No. 317 challenge this week, I squealed...just a little bit!

Have a great day!

UPDATE: July 12 - Top 3!!

Blender Blast ~

When I saw the BE Inspired picture challenge at the Alley Way Stamps, I immediately thought that the tin looked like some of my very favorite MME's paper, but I wasn't sure how much I had left.  Turned out I just had a little snippet left, so I decided that I'd paper piece this blender to look like one of those pretty appliances that I'll never have.  Of course the other green with the polka dots was a given too, with this paper from CTMH.  Love this stamp set!

Hugs & Fishes ~

Happy 4th of July!!

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our father's God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
 
Peace & Luv ~ Jeannie

Big Fun ~

I've got a Summertime thank you card today, and I had to
share my burlap flower & pearl treasure I found at a recent CK convention that was here.  There are 15 of them in a packet with the pearl center for $2. I love it when I find a deal!

One for the Boys ~

I'm starting off the week with one for the boys.  This paper was made with an embossing folder that I haven't even used as such, but I my thought would be great to use for a more manly type card at the time that I got it.  I suppose then that it all worked out fine, at least in my mind anyway....haha!

Tie Dye Love ~

I finally figured out why I like to make these embossing folder stamped papers so much....I love tie dye!  It must be the old hippie in me coming out, but the colors that came out on this one totally remind me of it.  I made 3 of these papers, so I've got two more cards to make....Happy Saturday!
