**LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE SONG YOU HEAR....ABOUT 10 OR SO YEARS AGO, MY PARENTS HAD THE FAMILY CHRISTMAS PARTY AT MY MOMS THEIR HOUSE, WELL WE ALL HAD TO SING TO GET OUR GIFT....YEAH..FUN...AND WHEN THIS SONG CAME ON MY MOM AND HER SISTERS WERE FIGHTING OVER THE MIC...LIKE LITERALLY TRYING TO TAKE THE MIC FROM EACH OTHER, LAYING ON THE BOTTOM PART OF THE FIREPLACE...STILL SINGING, TRYING TO GET THE MIC. I heard it the other day and was just tickled lol**
Happy Monday guys!! It was a pretty quiet weekend around here. I wasn't feeling my best, so I pretty much stayed in, with the exception of going to Aj's game Saturday morning. They won 40 to 20. YAY! I did have a hot minute on Saturday where I thought I was going to sew, but after doing my girls hair....ummm, not so much lol. So maybe next time. BTW, I still don't have my machine back, but I was going to pull out my VERY old Brother! LOL.
Aj lost his first tooth yesterday. Awwww, it's the LAST first lost tooth in my house. Too bad he is not completely snag! LOL. For some reason, my kids teeth never come out until the new teeth are coming in. There is still hope for the top teeth! LOL
And the tooth....awwww *sniff, sniff*. I pulled out my 50mm for this one lol. It has been a SERIOUSLY long time since I shot with it. My 17-40L has been hogging the camera....LOVE my 50mm!!!
Saturday, Asia was at the door, and here comes the cat from across the street. Now we got her from across the street and the kids seem to think this is her brother...hmmmm. Well after they sniffed the door for a while.....
HE DECIDED TO STAY FOR A WHILE. HA! He left eventually but I'm not sure when lol.
I started on the Bold and Bulky Mini Cardigan from Fitted Knits....
This top picture was taken about 5 or 6 rows after cast on......
This picture was taken ummm, around 17 or so rows?? I just put the sleeves on scrap yarn, so I'll try it on shortly...
I FINALLY got my hands on some of the MM NOTEWORTHY. I was SERIOUSLY trying to hold out on buying this. BUT OMG. I can't wait until I get some energy to scrapbook!!!!
And I scrapped a little bit...I think I started this one day last week lol, but I finished it Friday. I told y'all I loved these pics from my trip to Tennessee with Jaelyn (Sorry Stacey, no pics this weekend lol)
I love the way this came out...
Products: Crate Paper and Bazzill lol.
Some close ups...
I used the lovely creative memories wavy paper cutter on this. OMG. I am SO IN LOVE WITH THIS THING!!! Thanks Shakhan!!!!!!!!
I used my Silhouette to cut out my letters and the swirley things. I LOVE MY SILHOUETTE!!!!!!!!!!
The font I used was Cream Puff. Aj helped me put them on lol. One thing I will say, I used the QuickStripz made for the Silhouette by Bazzill. I do NOT like them. They do NOT have enough adhesive on the back and THAT is frustrating. So....well enough about that lol. I will have to show you guys how freaking easy this thing is to use. A video tutorial is near! LOL
SOME GREAT LINKAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stacey had a WONDERFUL post yesterday on Sojourner Truth. Please go check it out. I was SO unaware of what I found out!!! VERY INFORMATIVE POST!!!!
There are some great scrapbook inspiration blogs around...This is a new one called "OUTTA THIS FUNK"
I hope you guys like it too! Not sure how many of you know about it, but it looks really neat!
Ok, I've been emailing back and forth with a few of you about my organizing process. This all started when I found out I still had cancer. Well....I thought I wasn't going to make it for a BRIEF moment and started to get things, "TOGETHER" lol. Well, I know I will be fine, and I have always been organized but I am just taking it to another level!!! So here are some of the blogs that I frequent. They have REALLY good tips, and some have PDF's that you can download. Really good information...Some of you may not need a blog or any tips to help you get and stay organized, but if you do, here ya go...
Ok, that is it. See you guys later. Keep me in your thoughts, this is my LAST WEEK OF TREATMENT!!!! The doctors have told me this will be my worse week, but I don't want to claim that. LOL.
