Early Birthday Present!!

Hubby surprised me yesterday & told me to
go to B & N and
pick up
NOOK COLOR,(early b-day present)
I have been pining for since
last year!
I could hardly drive, I was So Excited!
You know when you're in a Hurry
to get somewhere & it seems
all the slow pokes & goofballs
just have to be in front of you!
Geez! Didn't they know
I had to be somewhere ASAP??
I finally made it, checked out the nook color
One more time & almost Ran to the check-out counter;)
The only bad part was...B & N is about an Hour away
from our house:(
Dang, that was the Longest trip home of my life
& then
just like My Cricut Expression...
I had to wait(once again) until Everyone else
was finished playing with my
New Toy!
I finally downloaded a few books, around Midnight..jumped in bed & started reading:)
Often times when reading/sleeping..I wake myself up by dropping
the book I'm reading on my belly..Lol
I enjoyed my new Nook & book so much...
that didn't happen last night!

A Cricut Expression...Just for ME!

Look what Fedex FINALLY brought me!
I have been waiting & waiting & waiting...

and Since I received it, I haven't been able to get near it!
My daughter & her friends have been having a ball with it & they won't even
let me Touch My new toy!!
She had her BFF spend the night & they literally spent the entire night
playing with the Cricut! I think they finally went upstairs about Midnight.
I also found the Sure Cuts A Lot
on youtube & purchased that too.
It is Amazing! You really Can do anything imaginable with that software!!
My daughter has been making pages to slip in the front sleeve of every one's notebooks
at school. She really learned this cricut thing fast...I'm gonna
need her to show me how to work it.
& I'm also gonna need a New blade soon;)

Pretty in Pink!

I have been Collecting Milk Glass
for over 10 years now..
I normally don't pay too much for my pieces,
Usually picking up these Pretties
at My favorite Junkin' spots, Garage sales or Estate sales.
I am Lucky to have a Mom
who also likes to frequent the same kinds of places!
She found these Shell Pink pieces
last week at an Estate sale!
I think she Really bought them with the intentions
of keeping them for herself
just like the Sweet Mom that she is..She Lovingly handed them
over & here they are!

I just Received an Invitation to Join

This is a Real Honor for me
because frankly...
I was Not
a Model student
in HS or previous Colleges.

I had a lot of Family issues growing up
let's just say...
School was Not a priority:(
at 41 years old & Currently working
on my 3rd semester,
I am Quite PROUD of myself:)

I chose to go back to school because of the economy
& what it did to Our business & finances
it has turned into a Journey about Fulfilling myself, personal growth & Reaching
for the Stars!

It's Never to Late to become the person You were Meant to be!!!

Cupcake Fabric;)

I bought 2 yards of this
I wish I would have bought More!
We are about to put an
offer on a House where
I will Again have a Sewing Room!
I miss my Sewing room So So much!
I plan to make a valance for the french doors
that my room will have:)
Wouldn't this fabric be cute
on a cozy chair in the sewing room??
It would make a Cute slipcover
on my sewing chair too!
Oh! the possibilities;)
I gotta go shopping & see if I can find MORE
of this fabric!!
