Now that I'm 40....seriously???

WOW....what a's been busy. I had a very full weekend. I had lots of "dates" as you might say lol....okay viewings of the apartments over the weekend. I did manage to rent one of the units. YEAH ME!!

I went and saw RICO on Saturday morning....totally killed me....and I didn't help myself either...he was gone for a bit so I continued with the diagonal crunches...what the????

I met up with DIVA for breakfast at Julia's which was a nice break....a very needed break...then back to the apartment I "date" for 7 hours straight...for the love of Pete....

I did manage to treat myself the other day to Showtime....$7.99 a month I watched all of Season 3 of that show....

Was hoping to catch up with an old friend over the weekend...but that didn't happen, maybe this weekend.

I've got my Scrappin Friendzy this weekend on Saturday....and then I'm heading to Spokane for a day or visit my sweet granny. She's back in the hospital and not doing so well...

all for now.....

My 40th Birthday - Twilight Style

So Saturday the 11th was my 40th bday. Really? Seriously? 40th? WOWZA....anyways I decided I wanted to do something very different....I mean really for my 30th bday party, I had all my buddies at the Eagle Eye Cherry concert at the showbox and my party backstage....oh the days of record reps and 40 had to be memorable. Really.

So I was surfing the internet and found The View Point Inn and saw that they were having a dvd release party but it was sold out.....and that they had added another one on my bday. It was immediately what I wanted to do. SO I called Heather and mentioned it to her....she was immediately on the Twilight bandwagon. So that was what we were gonna do.

SO if you haven't read must go read it now. If you haven't seen the movie...stop reading and go rent it now. Oh Edward....although pastey - is definately a lotta hot!!!

Heather and I invited Anissa to come with us....and so the 3 of us called and made our reservations. We decided to dress up for the occassion....why not??? AND so the plans were made.

A Twilight 4 course menu awaited us....and a viewing of the movie...what could be more perfect.

Our road trip was fun and very was nice to escape...from the apartments and the fact that I couldn't close anything...ugh...

The Inn was amazing. The view breath-taking. The food AMAZING...I had a chamborg komie and was in heaven. The dessert...I can still taste it....the movie of

While we were there I ran into a couple of DL's friends Kathy and Suzi...who I have run into from time and time again at CKC Portland and at other stamping/scrapbooking Donna Downeys class.

April Showers....

Lots has been going on since I last checked in.

Still trying to rent a couple of apartments....I've decided it's like internet or speed put out a little ad, you talk on the phone for a bit...and then you meet...and hope well that you get called back. As my brother reminded ask for a deposit instead of a blood test. Great. Leave it to the big bro to keep it real. Seriously.

I had a rough week, covering the phones and such....such drama hate when people call in sick all the time....especially when they know we are shorthanded. Seriously. Oh well....

I had a workout with RICO...which was fun...of course...and then a bit of shopping, and then back home to show the apartments some more.

Let's see....I had my hostess club get together...which went fabulous....MEME showed up!!! yeah MeMe. We made the same cards as the gals from work, which are posted below....The cupcake is the total hit!!! Love love love that card!

And then...the 40th bday was fast who knew??? The week started out great....Heather and I went and saw Knowing...Nick Cage...Yumo! The week really flew by....we had a pot luck on Friday at work, which was a total blast....I made my now famous turkey chili...thanks DIVA for the great dish....I carpooled with B-Rad...we got coffee....and then to work. I got a dozen long stem red roses from Bill (previous boss) and the pot luck...and then on the way home...B-Rad got me the Twilight soundtrack and we listened to it on the way home...and then.....It was Saturday.

Some things never change...

So I survived Monday. Work was good, busy...had to cover the phones for a bit...nice break.

Its amazing how easily one can get sucked back into a routine...we make these promises to ourselves to protect our emotions, and then out of some sense of obligation and/or guilt we do what we promised we wouldn't. I have been struggling with this for sometime now. I know it will get easier but it's still hard right now...I did however, keep myself guarded to a point...and felt okay afterwards....but still....seriously...will I ever learn???

Anyways...I did get home okay....and got ready for a viewing of the apartments...and then the phone least she called...we did reschedule - so I decided to just relax and do a bit of stamping. I realized when I was packing for last Friday I still had a few card kits left from my February hostess I made em up. I decided to send one to my sweet grandma and let her know exactly how much I love her...TONS! Anyways...I don't think I posted this here it is...enjoy!

Sad News

My dear sweet Grandma was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon. Things are not looking to hopeful at this time. Her kidneys have started to shut down. Darn those kidneys.

Anyways...please keep this very sweet woman who has lived a very long and healthy life and full of love in your prayers...she so deserves not to suffer.


More Just Rite

UGH the post office!!! For the love of pete. I sent Danen his package and it came back in the mail last night....apparently for being .34 short of postage. Seriously, I took it to the post office and had the sucker weighed.'s a picture of the cards I made Danen....

SO Happy It's Thursday!!!

YEAH is all I can say!! We started this morning off with about 2 inches of snow in lovely Ballard. Seriously? Are you kidding me??? Anyways, by the time I left for work, the roads were clear and wet, slushing in some areas...but it was totally driveable to work. I did bring my snow boots (Thanks Pops) just in case. I must admit, those are the best for the money I paid on a random shopping trip with Pops!!!
I've got lots of bdays this week - well actually today. A shout out to Little Pumpkin *LP* - Happy bday buddy!!! It's Diva's bday and Siggys at work. I won't show what I made LP yet, or Diva for that matter...but here's Siggy's cards...Again I used the Just Rite Stamper for the "S" I didn't use a border. The scan's a bit short...but you get the idea. I love keeping the cards simple and different, as I am making them for a lot of people at work for their bdays...SO Happy Bday DIVA and Siggy!!!
I'm all dressed up today. I haven't worn a skirt/blouse combo to work for sometime feels good to be dressed up....must get in the habit again...

Happy Monday - Happy Mail

Just another "Manic Monday" remember that song??? Well the weekend was busy and yet somewhat relaxing.

I think I have finally gotten rid of most of my's trying to hang on...but I say NO. Friday I basically came home and crashed...long week especially not feeling too hip all week. Saturday, got up did a few things around the apt and did a few outside errands...did a few little projects and hit the sack.
Sunday....was pretty lazy - guess I'm tired....I did manage to do a few things around the apartment...and spent a great deal of time dealing with the R-Contractor...finally the unit is done...for the love of Pete. Tony's gonna do a final clean today...basically just the bathroom...and then we will be good to go.
Still dealing with the squirrel issue...I think we've got all the little guys...BUT I'm still waiting for approval to get the trees trimmed and the hole patched up...seriously...ugh...and another tennant is moving out the end of the month....only to do this all over again....

I felt pretty good when I got to work today...and I checked my mail as I had forgotten to on Friday...and low and behold a little surprise...from MEME....Thank you for making me smile today!!!
So here's to a good week....TAC is finally filling orders from Feb there is hope my Feb 13th order will get here before my next hostess club on March 15th...fingers crossed!

To "Scrapling" or not...that is the question.....

What is a scrapling you ask....well it is a tiny card made of scraps. It is approximately 1 1/4" x 4 1/4". Way too cute to make.

My week last week ended well. We had a potluck on Friday at work, I passed out valentine goodie bags...MEME came and visited. I made my turkey chilli...which was the hit....I went to Diva's house for a movie and the remainder of the chilli...and then home.

Saturday was fun-filled. I worked out with RICO and then headed to Heather's were we made scraplings for a swap on a TAC forum paperwings. Here's mine. I then headed home, got ready for my "date" with my fellowship group...we headed to Gorditos...I was sooo early, and everyone was late...I totally thought for about 5 minutes that I had been stood up by 8 people and 4 kids...seriously....after dinner we headed to Michael and Lydias for a little chit chat and dessert...then it was home again.

Sunday I laid low...I woke up with a nasty cough - still have it....and man oh man does it sucx...

Monday....headed to work, and then afterwards, Heather and I met for dinner at Panera and had our favorite soup then we went to see Paul Blart - Mall many kids where there....they had the holiday off...but it was a FUN=NEY movie....

Tuesday was crazy - our stamps are being held hostage in a overflow of ponied up the $25 rush fee so Heather's order could get here before her workshop....yes I had some stampes in there as well...but she's been having a real hard time lately at work and I decided to surprise her....with a tuesday pick me they will be here on Monday....plenty of time before her open house on the 28th....I can't wait to get my first 3 sets...yeah!!! I have 4 more coming with my which is a hostess set....whenever it ships...I might have to rush it if it won't ship a week before my hostess club in March...don't want them to have to wait any longer than that...anyways....

Still have this's voice has been going in an out....and I'm planning on heading home tonight and going to bed....maybe doing a load of laundry....hoping I can kick this crude...ugh...

Have a great nite!!!

Just Rite Meets ATC

Again with the JustRite Stampers. I have been making mailboxes like crazy for the last month. First with my hostess club in January, then a couple for my two single friends...which they don't have yet...tee hee...and then for some people at work. I haven't taken any pictures...what?? But I will on the last two after they are not to spoil the surprise.

So how does JustRite meet ATC??? Well, my boss asked me to make a mailbox for his wife, and then fill it with little cards so she could give to people who have been helping take care of her while she has been dealing with cancer. SO I was up to the challenge. I found some really nice pink, red, brown, beige patterend paper at paperzone, where I got the paper for the mailboxes...and then I paired it with some ivory cardstock. I used a small scallop punch and a small round one, and used the Curlz Alpha set from Just Rite to make the initital. I had to put some bling on it with a bit of ribbon. The card size is a finished ATC size at 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and I even found some envelopes for them. Off they went into the mailbox...and to the boss hopefully they are a hit. I've attached a scan - sorry its a bit wonky...that bling made it shift.

An update on the Squirrels.....caught a possum in the trap this morning...yikes....but no movement in TAR's ceiling...yeah.....hopefully this will be finished sooner than later..ugh the drama....

Heading to see NEW IN TOWN tonight....hopefully that will be a good movie....and tomorrow...busy busy day....I've got to make my(actually Diva's recipe) Turkey Chili for Friday's potluck and dinner with's gonna be a busy next couple of days.....

Happy Monday!

WOW...the rest of last week just flew by. Many crazy stories....all I have to say is SQUIRREL...yikes...can't wait til that story is resolved.

On Saturday, I had an awesome workout with MEME for brunch...did a bit of shopping/errand running and ended up getting home around 4pm just in time to meet the squirrel guy. WOW...where did the day go.
I got all the cards prepared for my workshop on Sunday....Here is one of them. Sunday was alot of fun....good times....and then off to the rents for dinner.

When I got home I made another just two left. I finally found some envies to put inside of them, as one of the guys wants 30 envies and 30 inserts so he can write something for each day...awe cute....and then for my boss I need to make 6 cards with envies to put inside for his wife to use.'s to Monday!

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

Happy Wednesday!

Here it is...the middle of the week. Where has it gone?? Monday was a normal typical sleepy but busy day at work. Lots happening...lots to do....Tuesday showed up, and Heather and I went to go see Inkheart - thank goodness for the free pass. It wasn't a horrible was nice to escape for a couple of hours with no interruptions.

Today...I will be heading out during lunch to go to craft shopping, I have a couple of coupons and a gift card wahoo....I am looking for a border punch for my valentine's day cards...I need to finish the mailboxes that have been ordered, and I need find some small envies that will fit inside them for my one custom order...but there is time.

I need to get my cards together for my workshop on Sunday. I got all the orders sorted with their new stamps....and I have a ton to cut out not only for me, but for Cindy. So that's what I will be doing the next week or so during lunch. I need to get some more empty cd cases to store them in....and Cyn wants some hopefully I'll get enough interest to order a case of 200.

So here's to getting everything done!!!

So the weekend....

Friday was well Friday...the day couldn't have gone by any faster or last day on the phones for the week. Finally!

Saturday....was work out with RICO...we started earlier as the Cobras were training that day...had a great workout...then went to meet the DIVA for breakfast at Julia's. Was yummy! Had a great visit....headed home, Talked to MEME set a time for next Saturday to get together for bday/christmas/valentines etc, then did a few errands...then just chilled.

Sunday up with a migraine...didn't go to church...just laid low, took a couple of naps, did a few things, went grocery shopping...watched a bit of TAPS/GHI - all RICO's fault...and then went to bed.

On Sunday it was my nephew's 18th knew...anyways...I made him a set of cards with a music theme...its pretty hard to tell in the scan, but the black paper is debossed with a music sheet (gotta luv the cuttlebug folders)...I used a just rite stamper individual that said Just a Note and had music notes on the other end to make the hopefully, he will like them, along with the cash money and movie ticket!

Thursday, January 29, 2009

I want to decorate the sales office with hearts etc for Valentine's Day...and I need to stop by the floral supply to get some clear bags. I am going to be doing a stamping project for Sabrina for some of her clients. We are putting together Valentine bags for them, and I will be using my Just Rite Stampers to customize them....I'll take a picture for sure. I've got to go and look for some empty cd see if I can find a deal on stamps coming need storage for what else....oh yeah....Saturday...workout with RICO, brunch with Diva...then home to do "stuff" around the apartment. Sunday, church and then I'm gonna stay at home...and just relax....

When it needs to be easy and "Justrite"

So as part of my NEW YEARS resolutions in is to be more prepared regarding the people I care about and their birthdays.

I so far have been 3 for 3 this month...with two left to go...I have had 3 people at work who have had birthdays so far this month....for two of the guys, I have made handmade birthday cards...for the girl..who's bday is today...I not only made her a card, but I made her a dozen personalized cards using my new favorite stamps made by Justrite Stampers.

It seems some time ago...perhaps October I got obsessed....along with my dear friend/partner in crime when it comes to all things crafty...and purchased some items from Justrite Stampers. The first thing I got was the 1 5/8 circle, a times new roman alpha set, some borders, a small alpha set. My make all of my account executives holiday gifts...of personalized notecard set with the station info....and they went over like HUGE....seriously....which was soo make something, have it appreciated and actually stay in budget for the holidays!!! Since then, I have purchased a curlz alpha kit during the buy one get one and gave the other set to the craft friend..tee hee...and then I was given a gift of the large harmony II circle with borders and the baking set as well as a couple of other individual stamps...for the holidays from one of my wonderful account I am in love love love with this...they make easy gifts that are personalized so easily.

I used 5 12x12 sheets of paper (2 solid, 3 patterened all with a shimmer oh so pretty) and 8 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 white and made, 12 personalized cards, a birthday card and a belly band for the clear plastic box...I found some pretty gray satin ribbon...and off I went....making the is a scan of the birthday card and the plastic box which holds the 12 cards and the belly band..which was so easy to make...I used left overs and then the border/center from Justrite and the "S" is from the Curlz easy so fun...I am hooked.

I will also be making a set of cards for my dear friend Ronda who's bday is this weekend, and we are having a potluck on Saturday night to celebrate, I'll take pictures of that will be more of a "Playful" palette...with blues and are the ones I made for just to make Alan his bday card...and then it's time to get ready to make stuff for my nephews...And poor MEME...I have not only her stuff from her bday, but her holiday stuff...ugh....I'm gonna wait and give it all to her when I see here at the end of the month....

HAPPY 2009
