Sickies :(

I have a bad case of the sickies. The last 3 days have been rough.... but I think now Im finally getting better. Sunday I spent most of the day in bed with McDreamy. Im started watching season 1 of Grey's Anatomy and Im very addicted.

I was able to get out of bed today and play in my scraproom. I got 4 cards and a layout done! I also started working on a challenge blog Im doing with the *fabulous and talented* Jenyfur. We'll be doing weekly funky card challenges using a variety of different things. Stay tuned if you need to build your card stash with some unexpected fun :)

I missed 2 birthday parties on Sunday. My niece Megan turned 16, which seems impossible because when I met her she was still such a little girl. The other birthday is my fun loving friend Mindy who turned 28. She is such rockin chick and very good to my little brother. Happy birthday girls!

Same old same old

Nothing much going on here today. Hubs is home for lunch so were watching Arrested Developement. I so wish they hadnt cancelled that show. I didnt start watching til after it was off the air... and man is it funny!

I got a little present from Nikki G over at Poppy Ink! We did a ribbon button and blossom swap. I so love how she packaged everything! The coolest thing is I didnt have anything she sent me! I cant wait to play with everything. I keep thinking about those big fun buttons (wait that doesnt sound right)....Thanks bunches Nikki!

Have you girls checked out the Got Spirit? blog? If you havent you must. I love the idea of uplifting other scrappers and sending little treats. I love the idea of Happy Mail and have already started gathering little presents for my partner. Its not about spending money... its about brightening someone's day. Go see already!

Share the *love*

In honor of Valentine's week (it can last as long as I want dammit hehe) Here are a few of my favorite love quotes... hopefully they inspire a card, a layout or just you!

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and to be loved in return"
-Moulin Rouge (I know it was other stuff too... but I just *heart* that movie)

"True love is friendship set on fire"
-French Proverb (amen!)

If there ever comes a day
When we can't be together
keep me in your heart,
I'll stay there forever.
-Winnie the Pooh, (the sweetest quote ever)

The best thing to hold on to in life is each other
-Audrey Hepburn (I just adore Audrey)

" A true man does not need to romance a different girl every night, a true man romances the same girl for the rest of her lifetime."
--Ana Alas (*sigh*)

"I do love nothing in this world as well as you.... is that not strange"
-Shakespeare Much Ado about nothing (I just adore Shakespeare)

Have a happy Saturday! :)

The super springy fun
March Eye Candy Kit (Marzipan) debuted today! (and with it my first online dt debut) The preorders for the next available kit are also up today!! If you want candy and dont have it yet, I sugguest you pop over and check it out. You dont want to miss our doll of a guest designer too!
Its still freezing here with snow drifts everywhere. It is a beautiful sunshiny day! I popped out of bed early today (probably had something to do with the bottle of Reisling I drank with the tasty filet my Valentine helped me make last night) Im hoping to get lots of scrapping done tonight. Thanks to my cupids I have lots of new toys.

Snow snow and more snow.

Im buried. We have to have a foot of snow and it's STILL snowing. I cant wait to go out and take pictures! Its like a winter wonderland outside. The bad thing is that I need to go to the grocery store to buy steaks to make for tonight for Valentine's day. I think I will wait til Matt can come home and drive me. The roads seem to be okay, but they are still covered with snow and ice.

We ended up closing early last night due to the weather and I got to come home and play! I started playing with presents from my Crazy Cupid! Here is a little layout I did last night with some of the wonderful fun stuff she sent me. (I couldnt wait to take a picture....I had to play hehehe!) This is Matt's Valentine for this year too. Im loving the KI Wildthang!! Thanks bunches crazy cupid (for my entire awesome package)

You want some cheese with that wine?

Im sleepy. Ive have been sleepy for days. Im getting enough sleep... yet I'm tired all the time. I need to be awake now!! I have stuff to do! It's hard to get motiovated right now. Its FREEZING. I dont think we've seen 10 degrees this week. The wind chills are in the negatives every night when I leave work. All I want do is climb under my big down comforter (with it's chocolate brown microsuede duvet) and be comfy and cozy.

Tomorrow I have to go to a winery and taste different wines for work. Im kinda excited that I may learn a bit more and find something I really like. I dont really like dry wines. A chianti sends me running in fear. (but hubs loves it) I really dig reislings, zinfendels and other sweeter wines. I love the red table wine from Uncle Primo's resturant. Unfortunately I have to drive 40 minutes to get some. I dont think wine and my establishment exactly go together... but hey... its worth a shot.

I got a package from my pub cupid today!! Ohh do I love chipboard. Kick ass plain jane flourishes and pretty pink heidi swapp alphas!! Thank you pub cupid!! I love it! You are a sweetie!

My little deck of me cards

I started doing the art card project (deck of me) on Emily Falconbridge's blog. I so love this project. I have only done 2 of the cards so far and I really hope to catch up after I finish the projects for the fabulously happy March Eye Candy kit. Here are the 2 cards Ive done so far. I dont know why I didnt scan the back... but I didnt.

Card #1 On the back: What are you proud of? I am proud that I pushed myself to try for things..... design teams, publications etc. I am proud of me for taking it well when I dont make it. I am SO critical of my work and Im so afraid of rejection usually. Im proud that I made the Eye Candy DT because I pushed myself. SR 1/26/07
Card #2 What is powerful to you? On the back: "The greatest thing you'll every learn is just to love and to be loved in return" (Moulin Rouge) SR 1/28/07

Present making time!!

Im having so much fun with swaps right now! Im feeling like the present fairy. Ive been making up swap "kits" all night. I really dont know what I like best... shopping for my person or getting that surprise package in the mail.

Speaking of surprises... Lookie what I got from my Pub Cupid!! Oh the blingaliciousness of it! (yes I like making up words)Lots of Mambi bling words and shapes. I so adore bling and I love vintage valentines! Thank you Thank you pub cupid!

Im so looking forward to the 2peas music inspiration swap. Im cracking up at my song and I have tons of kit pictures in my head.

I actually scrapped last night. Id been staring at my January Poppy Ink kit for a few days so it had to be touched. I so love this picture of us in the limo. I also love stickles. Im hooked! I actually have been using them for years. I found a few old bottles and before I knew it I had to go buy every color of the rainbow. I used the stickles to polka dot the letters and to add glitter to the flower centers. If youve never tried them... you need to go buy them! They are only like $1!
