Friday was a normal busy day...Saturday started off - totally WEIRD...Lets just say RANDOM. Got a phone call from a tenant about a car that was blocking our driveway...What the French Toast! Seriously.
So after calling a tow company and then being told to call 911 non-emergency line then sifting through the phone tree I finally got a live person. Seriously....SO I reported the vehicle, gave the lic plate number and told them the address and that both airbags had been deployed...they said they would send someone out....wow....
I then finished doing what I needed to do and got ready to see RICO...Heather was gonna meet me there....made it down to the studio and got my butt handed to me...seriously....then I followed Heather to the Gluten Free Bakery in Maple Valley. Where everything was really really expensive....however, we did purchase a pumpkin bread mini loaf....okay....really?
We headed to Heather's where we proceeded to eat said Gluten Free Pumpkin Loaf....yeah...smelled really really good....taste...okay...texture....chalky....Robert laughed sooo hard at us....oh well...had to try it!
We then headed to Jessica's for a Pampered Chef cooking show. What a totally fun time. I am going to have a catalog party....so if you need any Pampered Chef just let me know...totally learned about my pizza stone since I bought it a year ago and have never taken it out of the box...seriously...ugh....so I'm all fired up to use it....then we headed back to Heathers for a bit...and then I was off to my next event....
After getting home, I got ready and make a salad for our fellowship potluck dinner and pumpkin carving extravaganza. I did not get a pumpkin. I am regretting it now...next time for sure. It was fun to watch the kids with the pumpkins. My camera is driving me crazy...my battery is not staying charged....so I've got another rechargeable battery pack coming....so no pictures to share...drat drat drat!
Anyways....we had yummy steak tacos and salad and such...then it was home for a nice rest of the evening....
Sunday was a full day.....I went to church and stayed after for a bit...trying to get sign ups for our scrappin event on the 22nd of November....Need to let MEME know about it....and then I headed to the office to do a bit of cleaning - we are getting new carpet and paint and I needed to do a bit of clean up...and it was easier to do it when know one was there...seriously!
Then off home I went. I showed the unfinished apartment to a gal....and then well that pretty much was Sunday....
Monday has been pretty good. I emptied a few drawers of my desk at work, and did a bit more of cleaning and organizing...its always good to just do it....and especially with the new paint and such it will look really nice.
Have a wonderful evening!

Then on Sunday - my Everett Hostess Club got together....and we did 7 holiday cards. I showed them a couple of new techniques that were used on 3 of the cards....so after the techniques were done....they started making cards....I actually put together a set as well....as my dad didn't stay to stamp...he washed my car and changed the oil instead...so I gave him the set...fair trade right???? LOL...anyways....one of my new obsessions...is the marvy snowflake punches...I got the yellow and blue one.....In the card below, I punched the snowflake out of Kraft paper and then using the essential glue pad, attached glitter to it. All stamps, papers and inks are from the Angel Company. Contact me if you see something you like.

I ended up getting the ebay die (which I need to re-list) which when it arrived was way way too small....and then the coluzzle. I decided to make it and teach it to the gals from work at our September gathering....I did all the prep work and only charged $10 each. Really I should have charged $15 for all the prep I did....but none the less - it was fun....The sample I did, I used several different shades of paper....so I had planned on making myself a new one. Well....I didn't start it til the other day....to which a co-worker (What up "L"man) asked if he could purchase it to give to his boss for boss' day....yeah Lucy!! Anyways.....so here is the finished product. I still have to assemble mine....
All paper and stamps are from The Angel Company. The final picture is a snap shot of the acrylic box that I dressed up with a paper band, ribbon and buttons....I can't wait to make more of these bands.....Heather...we might have to order more boxes!!!

SO I called DIVA...and in the midst of our conversation....I say to her:

DIVA - You must have been very bad...with don to deserve it
ME - Why yes I was very very very bad....and hummm I really don't regret it...
SO my happy, crazy, sad memories....
Keeping Calm and Carrying On...
