Yay! Swap Meet success!


Got up early today and found some "treasures" at the Swap Meet. I couldn't resist this sign for my Betsy :) The guy said it's an old sign that you'd hang on an antique car in a parade or car show (?). And I've been wanting a little ice bucket forever.

Look who likes treats afterall...



Clemmy tried it and she likes it :)

I can't believe I'm up this late...

I have spent the last couple of hours trying to figure out how to get my Flickr album on here. I finally got it!! This is all trial and error for me b/c I'm not a techie, so it takes me forever. There are two options on my sidebar. Which do you like better? The top one is larger but the bottom one is cuter....
I guess I could do craft pics in one and different pics in the other one.
Oh yea, and I changed my playlist up a bit. Let me know what you think :)

busy week...

Wow, my poor blog has been neglected all week! I didn't realize that it had been a while since I had posted anything. Sorry! I plan on doing a lot of yard work tomorrow and will post some updated pics of my bulbs :) For now I will just share this super cute idea I found while surfing the blogosphere:

Are those not adorable? Click here to see the tutorial.
Btw, my sister mailed me some of her Chocolate Guinness cupcakes and they are ridiculously good :) I had to put two straight in the freezer for Chris, so I wouldn't be tempted!

Alice images from yesterday...


These are the two new Alice images we colored in the class yesterday. I can't take credit for the color combos, they were all Randi. Aren't they so pretty? I love that these stamps have eyes to color in. I know that's random, but I think it really adds something to the image. So fun!

Fun stamping/coloring class...

Hey, I took a cool class by Randi at Paper Tales today. We colored the latest 'Alice' stamps from Sweet Pea. They are so pretty and I learned a lot of new techniques. I am having so much fun with my Copics and all of these cute stamps! I will take pictures of the ones I did and post them tomorrow (sorry, I'm lazy). I'm trying to get ready to sleep but the time-change will probably throw me off for a couple of days.

Saw it!!!

I saw Tim Burton's masterpiece yesterday!!! I loved it. Everything about it was totally inspiring to me. I want to re-read the book now. I had forgotten about a lot of the characters. The caterpillar is my favorite :) I don't know why I think he is so cute and I love Alan Rickman's voice for some reason. I liked the girl playing Alice but her performance did kind of remind me of her character on "In Treatment." Still like her though. And of course the Queen of Hearts (Helena Bonham Carter) was hysterical to me.

Glorious day, my bulbs are growing!


I noticed some bulbs sprouting up today!! It has rained so much lately that I was afraid they'd drown or rot. But I guess some have survived. These are gladioli. My iris' haven't shown up yet. I'm going to be so excited if these bloom ;)

Alice Card


I submitted this card for an 'Alice' challenge that The Greeting Farm is having. They are the company that makes these adorable stamps. I love looking through all of their stuff and the member gallery. It's so cool to see how other people interpret the same challenge.

Funny dog story...

I bought these dog treats that are a rawhide rolled up around some nasty stuffing. Betsy likes them but Clementine is totally uninterested. When I give Betsy hers she sticks the whole thing (it's like 5 inches long) in her mouth to keep Clemmy away from it even though she doesn't care. It looks hilarious! She's such a piggy :)

my boring life :)

Sorry for my absence but I haven't had anything that exciting to talk abt. I have a cpl pics to upload but they'll come tomorrow :) Just wanted to say HI! I'm hoping to be more inspired this weekend. Still deciding whether I will fight the crowds to see "Alice" tomorrow or give it a cpl days and go Sunday...
