I have also bought some fun frames (Laci said, "oh, I love the shape", just a little teaser), some glass candle holders, and some (get this) combs! I have more to come, but you certainly won't want to miss out on this fun class. you will get a set of rub ons, and each of the projects to take home made! All for $20!!!! Brenda H came and got her catalogs and asked about the rub ons, and I got so excited telling her, I think I scared her! It will be a fun time! watch for more!!! This my last post of the year!

I have been pretty darned stressed about leaving town before or right after my catalogs come in. I have also been wanting to practice on my cutting/binding skills before taking on the SU! catty.
Good news, Carolyn let me practice on her Arbonne catalogs, I ruined about 6, then got things figured out. Now I am a pro ;) (and a big thanks to Kayla's hubby for taking the kink out of the cutter)
And Brown just dropped off my 7 cases of catalogs.
That is right ladies, your books are here!
I have only bound three so far, have about 30 more to go.
I do have lots of other things I have to wrap up first, I know you understand. Otherwise I would just do it all right now.
However, if you'd like to come by, you can visit with me while I bind it for you. It is pretty quick. In fact I could have it bound before you write out your check! ;)
Donna and Ann have paid for their catalogs, but I didn't take $ from anyone else.
I have about 32 spoken for at the presale price ($5 or $10 for bound).
If you didn't reserve a copy, but would like to get one, let me know ($7 or $12 bound).
I would be thrilled for you to have one! :)
See you soon!

I have it in my grubby hands!
I honestly thought that the last catalog was the best ever, but this one is even better!
I suggest we all get second jobs! This book has some stuff we just won't be able to live without!
So much to get, so little time!
I would tell you more, but I have to make my wish list! ;)

That is what I thought.
We are almost ready, meaning I have almost everything done, translated means, one more week isn't near enough time! ;)
But seriously, it is coming, ready or not!
I had grand plans of blogging really cool pictures of fabulous creations.... then reality hit me like a ton of bricks!
I am sharing my saga, because I know that most if not all of you will be able to totally relate!
I had teacher appreciation yesterday, I was excited about it being breakfast, so that I would still have a lot of day left. Ha ha ha!
We finished up and I was home by 11:30, not too bad. I had to beg (not really) Kayla to sell me 12 more tins, yes, I am still being asked to make tins. Then I had to play catch up with my email, still optimistic I head out to the stamp room to be fabulous! Well, lets say not a lot happened with the hour I had left.
I pick my sweet little Jeremiah up, and of course he didn't bother to eat lunch bc at school, there is simply no time. We run and get him a snack and I head to the bank, where I deposit three post dated checks I promised not to deposit and had ever so carefully separated from the pack. The new guy at the window isn't used to me and my drama yet, so it was funny getting those checks back from him, but you know I did. And he has learned a valuable lesson in dealing with me, it never will be as easy as it seems! ;)
So for some unknown reason, I have the urge, no the uncontrollable drive to wash my van. Never mind Jonathan gets out in 15 minutes and I am no where near the school. I must wash my van. That was fairly uneventful, and not totally successful, but at least if you walk by it now, dirt won't attack you.
I pick up Jonathan and the Eaker girls and we head home. I have a few emails to write and numbers to look up, still knowing full well that I will get to make something pretty and post it.
I hear a strange noise from outside, but basically ignore it, then i hear Jonathan talking to someone and he sounded panicked, that got my attention, but I was going to check in a second, then I hear, "Jeremiah is hurt bad, and is bleeding really bad", I see three kids who are white as ghosts and suddenly that odd sound becomes recognizable as Jeremiah panic. From the front door of my house, I can see him atop the neighbors club house, blood pouring from his face. the first thing I do, "stop screaming, mommy is coming!" me running, well that will be the comic relief.
I get to him, and honestly have never ever seen so much blood on a club house, and it isn't pretty. two tomato soup cans... clumpy and gross. I still can't tell what happened to him, or if it is his nose or mouth. But he is frozen in fear. Finally I get him, and I notice a steel baseball bat on the ground. As I am carrying him to my house, not too upset, but confused, I say to Jonathan who is trying to call his dad from my cell phone, "what did you do, hit him with a bat?" to which Jonathan replied, "I didn't mean to, I am so sorry!" Well, that was it for me. Seriously folks, I lost it. I couldn't think clearly at all.
Luckily my good friend Carolyn was next door at her mom's house. She came and assisted as I was brain dead. She got ice for him to hold on his nose, and this should have told me he was ok, he just help up his hands and wanted the blood off. JP showed up to get his girls, and said it looked broken, mainly bc his eyes were purple and his nose swollen. So I start to plan to go to the doctor. I didn't think about his eyes always being purple, my allergy boy.
Scott comes and we scoop him off to the doctor. They come to the waiting room to assess him, and decide we aren't urgent. We aren't still bleeding, the swelling has gone down, and he is acting ok. This is when we start to figure out what really happened. There was a hole is the bottom floor of the tree house, Jonathan was under it and sticking his bat up through the hole. Jeremiah for some reason thought he would look into the hole about the same time. And there you have it, BAM! right in the nose. Well, suddenly we realize, we didn't need to be at the doctor's office. But we were grateful that everyone was ok. Still covered in blood though. We went ahead and saw Dr. Turnage. She said all was ok, but the big bite he took out of the inside of his mouth, the best thing to do is mix benedryl and Maalox and swish it around and spit. That soothes and numbs it as it heals. So that is my $25 tip... I plan to share with everyone.
So, maybe today I will post a picture of something fun and wonderful, however that will be after I get the blood out of clothes, shoes, coat, and a club house across the street! which reminds me, do you know that peroxide takes blood out of fabric and carpet? it does!!!
We are blessed, and this life as crazy as it is, I wouldn't miss a minute of it!
I wish you and yours a blessed Christmas! take time to thank Jesus for coming to give us abundant life, and when it is at it's craziest, He will take care of you, with friends and neighbors and surround you with people who love you and take care of you! Thanks to all who lifted us up in a faux-crisis, that was just practice for next time! ;)
I almost forgot the funniest part. I asked Jeremiah why he was screaming so, bc he stopped when I told him to. He said that it didn't really hurt that bad and he thought that he was ok, but that when he put his hand up to feel it and then saw all that blood, it kinda freaked him out! poor kid. His friend Dylan stayed by his side the whole time, never leaving him to freak alone. It is nice to see the good that rises from crisis, people really do rise to the occassion. I would have never thought to stay, but I am glad someone did!

Many of you know Susan and Terri, well we are all often inspired by those two.
This technique came from eavesdropping on the two of them making a card at my house one night! ;)
Stamp your image in any color, and with a q-tip dipped in a different color, pull off part of the ink. For the elephant, I inked her in basic grey, and then took pomegranate on a q-tip and wiped the grey off the ear. For the lion, I inked him in More Mustard, and then dipped my q-tip in chocolate chip and took off the ink on the mane. Super easy, and gives depth! Thanks girls!
Laci, I know what you are thinking, and no, I can't get enough of this set! Love the animals.
Well, I have a child's birthday party at the park to attend! send me warm thoughts!
