Yoo-Hoo Tanya!!!

Thanks so much for playing along everyone.

I had a heck of a tiring couple of days, and was actually in bed at 7 this evening.
I woke up with a jolt, thinking "Oops! I'm supposed to do the Upsy Daisy draw tonight!!!"

So I jumped outta bed, grabbed two of *these babies* and came to sit down at the P.C
I decided to use a random number generator this time and it churned up this:

Random Integer Generator

Here are your random numbers:

Hey, thanks for all the "congrats", ya'll :)
It's always a thrill to see your stuff in the mags...these two pubs are pubs 5 and 6 for me.
I'm not big on submitting (translation:lazy), but this has been a shot in the arm to try a little harder :)

Now...I want to show you these cute jingly jangly earrings I got the other day.I took my girls to get haircuts after school, and the owner of the salon was unpacking some new shiny sparkly stuff.
I spotted these earrings, put them right on, paid and walked out wearing them ...instant gratification is the name of the game!

Don't forget the Upsy Daisy givaway.
I'll be drawing a name some time on Friday...

Oh Yeah!

This week has been awsome!
And it's only Tuesday!

I had two pages picked up for publication by Canadian Scrapbooker
And one super-duper e-mail from the gals at CK

Sooooo, to celebrate, I'm giving away some "Upsy Daisy" goodies.
I have the entire "Bebe" line of papers; some rub-ons and a stamp set.

Here's what you'll get:

Now repeat after me:

(oh, and leave a comment so I can draw a name :))

Bring It

Anyone else ready for some sunshine?
Thought I'd make a card.
Hoping it can twist Mother Nature's arm a bit.

I've been playing along in a "Use Your Stash" challenge at one of my online hangouts and this has been great in that I've been unearthing a treasure-trove of goodies I've plain forgotten about.

Here's a recent page featuring my guy, Cai (I'm a poet and I didn't know it!)

In other news, I was happy to discover yesterday that a winner of my RAK last week, Yve, actually lives right here in St.Paul!
Wow, talk about small world.
We're hoping to meet soon :)

Tonight is my Spanish class, and it's going really well. I kinda prefer it when the class moves fast rather than at a more leisurly pace...I almost learn/retain more that way.
The other night Hubs and I watched a movie which had a bit of non-subtitled Spanish dialoge and I managed to translate it...correctly...I think.

Needless to say the Hubs was muyo impressed and is now busy planning exotic trips to Spanish speaking lands...Oy vey!
This is probably a good time to tell him that the supposedly romantic phrase I said to him in Spanish actually means "My mother drank eight black boots"...hee-hee

I'm back!
A little later than expected, but I'm off to the Post Office again later today, so I'll set that envie of trim on its way to its new owner :)

I wrote down all your names, cut up the paper into strips, tossed 'em all into my popcorn bowl (clean of course) and drew a name...

Ms Kelli, come on down!
Shoot me an e-mail with your deets and I'll pop this in the mail today :)

Keep checking back 'cause I'm putting together some Upsy Daisy yumminess to give away soon :)

Drum Roll Please

Sorry I'm late with this suddenly got muyo busy here the last couple days.
We're trying to wind up the last bits of the house we're building so it's been a lot of shuttling back and forth trying to piece together little deets...

Anywhoooooo....I printed out all the comments up to the end of yesterday, snipped 'em up, popped them into Hubby's cap and pulled one out (sounds like a lot of work right?
It was.)

So, without further ado, would Yve please e-mail me at and let me have your postal details.
I have a box ready to drop in the mail to you :)

Grammy Night

I am loving the Grammys this year.
The last couple years were a bit lacklustre but this year the performers were AWSOME!!!

Al Green and Justin Timberlake!

Jennifer Hudson (love love love her!!!) and Coldplay (brilliant!).

The only downer was the no-show by Chris Brown and Rihanna :(

Hubs is at work tonight and the kiddies are in bed.
I just finished reading *this amazing book*
It was powerful, moving and superbly written...I'd highly recommend it :)

Here's our little Zuzzi, who woke up to a runny nose and some minor congestion this a.m.
He's still so upbeat though :)
And he loves wearing his Dad's hat, even when he was eating

A quick update on my excercise regime.
I've been treadmilling for 4 weeks now.
5-6 days a week.
Averaging 35 minutes per day.

I think I'm starting to see results.

My earlobes look waaaaaaay skinnier.
As do my elbows.
And my knees.


Ben & Jerry's all around, I say!

Don't forget about my bloggity give-away
I'll be collecting comments until the end of this weekend.

Buenos nochos Amigas!

Blog Candy

One promise I made to myself at the end of last year was to PURGE my scrappy stuff regularly.

At least monthly.

Well, I'm a little late since January just ended.
But I have a great excuse :)
The Hubs and I were celebrating 13 years of B-L-I-S-S...
Well, mostly

Anywho, leave me a comment and I'll pull a name for a box FULL of goodies...

Here's a page I did last week.
Look at that expression on Cai's

Okay, I'm off to conjugate Spanish verbs...F-U-U-U-N!!!

...what followed me home this weekend!!!

While Hubby was paying for this, another customer (major Fashionista) said in a heavy Czech accented voice:

"You have good Husband...good Husband"

Then she looked me up, head to toe, and says "Well, beautiful wife needs beautiful things"

Someone should put that down in a book of famous quotes.
Heck I think I'll get it written down on every wall in my house!

Have a great week ya'll!!
