Eggs and Bakey!!
Well, how about coffee and a vitamuffin? LOL
Thought I'd drop a few lines before I sit and get to work this morning. I started on a layout yesterday.....and as I was putting things together I had, what I thought at the time, was a brilliant idea. I decided to do some hand stitching. Yup......and I don't sew.......lol. It was one of those "Well how hard can this be" kinda moments where an hour later you have stuck yourself fifty bazillion times, have a crick in your neck and really sore hands.
Yeah.....how hard can it be???
I need to remind myself each time I ask myself that I am headed for disaster......lol.
Actually all things considered it looks really good. It's just very tedious work. And my fngers really do hurt.....lol. I got about half the stitching done yesterday and hope to get the other half completed today. Maybe even the entire layout, which would be sweet since I haven't entered any challenges at all this week. I do own a sewing machine but have no clue how to use it.....I'm a lost cause.....lol. My mom passed it on to me and I took one look at it and was intimidated. I am thinking I may pull it out this weekend when Bob is gone and see what I can do with it. I LOVE stitching on layouts and cards but at the moment I am not eager to make the stitching thing a permanent part of my scrapping routine. But it was something I have never tried so here I go.....wish me luck :)
And while I am at it I wanna thank EVERYONE for all of the thanks and congrats and comments on my DT layout over at Scrap it With A Song. We have had a really nice turnout for our first challenge too! So I am really excited to see where this leads too and all of the wonderful pages that are being created! If you haven't already, head on over there and check things out! The prize this week is a beautiful batch of prima flowers!
I am lovin being on Christina's DT! She is super sweet and I tell ya....the DT is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! I have peeked at all of their blogs and Jess has posted her first DT page and it is soooo sweet!! I will link up the entire DT a little bit later....be prepared to be seriously inspired!! I may even learn to scrap from these girls instead of just faking it.....lol. OHhhhhh.....and the comments on my page....WOW. There is a lady over there who I seriously admire. I stalk her blog.....yeah...not follow....STALK......LOL. She is on several DTs everywhere (but not there....that I know of) and when she gave me such high praise I bought fell over right in front of the computer......what an honor for me, to have someone I admire and look up to in the scrapping world, even acknowledge my work, let alone speak so highly of me. I won't mention her name cuz she may file a restraining order.....LOL. I probably sound a bit like Kathy Bates did in Misery.......LOL. "I'm your biggest fan!!" LOLOLOL......I'm safe I promise! And don't even own a sledgehammer :)
So short post this morning.....I am off to complete my stitching!!! It will NOT get the better of me danggit!!!
Jesse is off on a field trip today to the zoo with his kindergarten class. He is excited and a bit scared too I think. He has never been on a feild trip and has asked me a million questions...."Who will pick me up from the zoo??" As if they would just leave him there.....lol. Altho they may confuse him with the monkeys and think he actually lives there....lol. Poor fella! So I am sure I will have lots to tell you about his trip tonight.....part of me really wanted to go.....I have never been to the Knoxville Zoo. But the other part of me knew that I would get stuck chaparoning a bunch of 5 year olds. And the teacher always comments about how good I am with children......that is secret code for "if you ever chaparone an event we are sticking you with the problem children" LOL.....Thanks but I will pass!!!
So ya'll have a good day! I'm gonna be smart and actually use a thimble today!
