Here I sit, on the 13th of April, and it is snowing. A year ago, it was in the 70's, and it is barely 35 today! This is getting mildly depressing. We usually get the whole yard raked during April break...that is not happening this year! Our April break in almost done, and I have not even touched a rake! The daffodils are up about 4-5 inches, so I hope they withstand the forecasted NOREASTER they are calling for on Sunday!!
I did THE stupidest thing on Tuesday. I thought since I was off work that I would go help my Mom stock some shelves and pack some bags at the food shelf. We served 13 families that day! While leaving, I remembered that I had to talk to my Pastor's wife for a minute, and when I left their house, I somehow managed to not get my hand out of the door in time. I suffered a loss of three fingernails, two fake and one real. Ripped that ring finger nail right off, down to the cuticle. So here is my question. The acrylic overlay is still on it, and there is no way that is coming off..but it really hurts when I bump it. Will it come off the rest of the way by it's self, or will I have to cut it off?? Mind you, I did manage in all the chaos to pick up the two acrylic ones I knocked off, and glue em back on...there is vanity for ya!! So I may have a new nail by CHRISTMAS!! I am so clumsy!! Excuse any injury related typos, by the way!
Last but not least, my sister in law is getting married two weeks from tonight!! It is Peter's sister, she is two years older than me. But we all know what weddings mean..new outfit!!! Do you think with all my travels the other day, I could find something I liked?? NOPE! Nothing seemed to be my style, the right color, and since when does flab look twice as flabby in the changing room mirror?? I finally found some tan slacks, and a white shirt, and some brown sandals (that I can wear inside my snow boots!!) Then on to wedding hair. I have been coloring said hair with Natural Instincts 16RG Sedona Sunset for years, those darned grays! But lately the locks have gotten a little long and droopy. I have an appointment on Monday afternoon--nice when your best friend is a beautician!! But I have NO IDEA what to do with it. I know she won't cut it short, and I don't want it short, but I need some style to it. I have a few layers, but my hair has always been somewhere b/t straight and curly, and it is so limp and flat. Anyone got any good sites with hair style pics??
Well, I guess that is it for now. Sometimes I just need to get stuff out that Peter could care less about. You guys got it all this time round!! Have a good weekend! Love, Me!

I used Roses in Winter from SU! I also used Barely Banana, Summer Sun, and Marigold Morning Inks, as well as Mellow Moss and Certainly Celery for the leaves, and Bashful Blue for the flowers. I used the Weathered background stamp from SU! on the folio before stamping the roses, and I love how it turned out! I stamped the sentiment from the set, and mounted it on Mellow Moss cardstock. Blue gingham ribbon is also from SU! I can see many more of these in my future! They would make great teacher gifts using Country Apple from SU! All credit for the project goes to SU! Independent Demonstrator Judy Bailey!

I am so blessed to have found a very sweet and talented friend online, who spoiled me for my birthday with beautiful handmade gifts! Thanks, Judy Bailey! I appreciate your friendship very much, and you talent, too! She made me this beautiful altered journal. That SU! punch for notebook bindings has caught my eye! She also made the beaded pen to go along with it!
Judy also made me the cutest stationery set! It is such a simple idea, but packs such a punch! I love the stamps she used, too. This would be a great gift idea for RAK's, as well as shut ins, etc. And when you really think about it, this could literally be adapted to any theme! Cute, cute!
