ok.  now this is sad.  i have not seen my craftroom in over a week and the reason is really a poor .... and lazy one or several.

1.  the weather has been weird.  some days sunny and mild; some sunny and hot and some rainy and very humid.  i still get to sit out for a little bit with puppy.

2.  mojo is on vacation.

3.  i treated myself to JEWEL QUEST and i've been playing it for the past week... almost to the exclusion of everything else.  sheesh.  maybe it's just my down time.

is that sad or what?

anyway, thank goodness i have a large - really large - stash of cards that haven't been posted yet, so here i am, digging into it, for your viewing pleasure :)

just some dots and a sticker.  easy peasy.  yep.  mojo is MIA.

have a great week!

TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM.....  this is about how my day goes... sometimes...

bellieve it or not, i just received a check from medicare for all of one cent!
why?  i don't know, but concerned that some arcane regulation - complete with penalty - would apply for NOT cashing a government check, i took it to my bank.
the teller looked at the amount, checked the endorsement and then asked... "how would you like that?  heads or tails?"

Scribble Flowers

boy!  with facebook it seems i seldom get to my blog anymore... not that i post much on FB.  truth be told, i'm enjoying the summer.  i've been doing lots of reading - mostly james patterson and a few janet evanovich and sitting on my back deck.  i am sooooooo tan.  i am NOT a sun-worshipper but since i've been using coconut oil as a makeup remover and moisturizer, seems i am VERY tan.  everyone is asking if i've been to the tropics.  only it's the "tropics" of my yard - LOL.  maybe i should make some pina coladas - ya think???

anyway, i haven't been in my room in a while so i'm digging into my stash.

i treated myself to the SCRIBBLE FLOWERS die and stamp set by MY FAVORITE THINGS. 
this is done with just the die set.  love it.  

well, i decided to get more active in my homeowner's association and there's a meeting this morning, so i'm off to get ready.  should be interesting!

have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

p.s.... have you noticed this is the LONGEST i've had this blog background?  hmmmm,

TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM.....  hearing problems

a marine biologist was telling his friends about some of his most recent findings.
"Some whales can communicate at a distance of 300 miles" he said
"What the heck would one whale say to another 300 miles away?" asked his friend.
"i'm not absolutely sure" the expert said, "but it sounds something like 'can you hear me now?'"

now that's funny!!!!

yep.  summer has arrived.... and in full force.  hot, humid, windy, stormy, thunderstorms, tornado warnings.... the whole gammit.  typical summer in the midwest!  poor puppy is sooooooooo bored!!!!

at least i can get into my craft room to take away some of the boredom....... which is just what i've been doing......  mojo or not.

we have 7 girls at church expecting babies.  all save 1 are having their 2d.  the 1 is having her 3rd.  guess they've been bored too LOL.  needless to say, i've been working on baby cards.... soooooo, here ya go....

 i've ALWAYS wanted to do a card with this image. FINALLY i have.
the image is by THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE you can find it here

this was easy.  just took a pen and drew, then stamped.

VBS starts this week.  i'm hoping to get there.  it's ALWAYS such fun!

stay cool!

TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM...... 3 little pigs.....

the kindergarten teacher was reading THE THREE LITTLE PIGS to her class.
"and the pick went up to the man selling the straw and said 'please sir, may i have some of that straw to build my house?'"
"and what do you think the man said?" asked the teacher.
a little boy raised his hand and said "i know, i know!  he said 'holy moly, a talking pig!"

the teacher was unable to continue the story!

this one ALWAYS cracks me up!!!
