Pictures as promised!



Good morning! I have a few minutes before I have to start getting ready for work this moring so I wanted to post some pics! This is a pic of our house with SNOW on the roof!!! OMG! It was sooo awsome to see snow this year! Our 1st year in our house and already we went through Hurricane Ike and now snow!

Here is our sidewalk at night :)



While driving to work I saw these guys on the side of the road. Hubby went back and took the pic for me!

Monday when I got home from work, I came home to the most awsome package!!! It was the Primmart 2008 ornie swap!!! OMG!!! I wanted to just bawl like a big ol baby! I didn't sign up for the swap because that was when I had been going through my chemo treatments and was too weak to sew. This is the 1st year I have missed out on it. I believe I have been in the past 5 ornie swaps! So this is something very special to me!
I ran to the phone and called Mari! She is such a sweetie! She added so many extra goodies in there as well! My hubby said he loves her when he saw the dips! LOL I still need to hop on PM and thank everyone personally. I will be off Thur (tomorrow). So I can do some more updates.
Here is a pic of my goodies. I will be taking some pics, maybe a video of our Christmas tree tomorrow.

Oh and Miss Judy, (ya lil stinker!) sent me an awsome box yesterday! Everything was wrapped, so I called her and asked her if she wanted me to wait till Christmas to open everything. She said it was up to me! So I wonder if I am going to be a good girl or not? hmmmmm I want to dig in so bad! LOL hehehe
Well that is about it for now. I have to go get ready for work.
Big (((HUGZ))) to all that is reading and following my blog!

Elf Yourself!

Hi all! I wanted to pop in and say hi and thank you for visiting my blog! I wanted to get something I have been working on listed on ebay today, but family came 1st today! I started my day shopping at the place I work... Kohl's! Then picked up my daughter Angel from her friends house. Then back home and locked myself in my bedroom! Once in there I spent the next 4 hours in a sea of boxes and clothes and gifts! Wow! I sure hope my gurls love their gifts! I feel very blessed to be able to afford Christmas this year with all that has happened to us this year and now the people that are in our old house aren't paying their mortgage. Fun stuff, huh? Ok enough of the yucky stuff!
Can you believe it is Christmas? I don't want it to be here and gone! I want Christmas to last at least another month! I have tons of ideas that I still haven't got to paper yet! And OMGosh!!! The most amazing thing happened the other day on my way home from work.... SNOW!!!! Yes SNOW!!! I know some of you up north are thinking what is so special about that? Well here in my neck of the woods it only snows about every 10 years. In fact when I got to my job the next morning someone built a snowman in the parking lot! I just had to jump out and take a pic of him then with him! It was on my phone, still not sure how to put those onto my puter yet. I have lots of pics to share, but not enough time tonight to get them uploaded. I have to be at work at 7am!
Today we finally got our tree too! I am sooooo excited! For years now, I have wanted to put my primitive handmade ornies on our family tree. Well hubby has always said no. Well since packing up our old house to the new house, we can find our other ornaments. So I suggested we just use my prim ones. He said ok! Hehehehe Well, let me tell you, my tree is PACKED with ornies! OMG!!! It is so precious to me! Each one is so special and made with love from my prim sistas! It is soooo pretty! Again, I will have to post pics! After I got it all done, my hubby looked at it and said that it was better than any other tree we have put up! hahaha I tried to tell him!!! Even my gurls said that this was their favorite! I am just so happy! I can't wait to show it off!
Oh yeah my hubby is making a custom light for our kitchen. Right now we need to add more lights to it or something because it still doesn't seem to bright, but I love how it looks so far! Will have to add pics of that too!
Well I think that is it for now, thanks for checking in on me!
Here is a video I made of Me, Shelly (owner of Primmart) Judy (co-owner of CPV) Sherry (Anniescupboards) and Megan (American Prim). I sure can't wait till the Primmart convention!
Hope you enjoy this video!

15 hour work day!

WOW! What a day!!! Yesterday I had to work 8 1/2 hours (at Kohl's) then rush home to finish up some dolls for our AB4B group launch! That was another 6 1/2 hours to get the pics taken, uploaded and into our group launch template! I don't remember hitting the pillow! I fell asleep on the couch! I have been working on these dolls for the past week or so. Here is a cute pic I took of them while they were drying!



And here they are after!








They are on ebay now! If you would like to take a peek, here is the link:
