So happy

Well, I am very happy as happy as one can be who is dying from a cough. Patty from fell in love with my art. I am submitting it for a guest designer for February. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Her favorite was the bottom one of the little African American girl with the flowers. This atc has a story to it which makes me even happier that she loves it too. You were so right Miss T.... so right........ I think I shall use this little wonder every single time I have an ATC swap! That little child is by far my favorite image.

My little Christmas tree

Not sure but most of you know that it is just Rick and I. So, we don't need a huge tree just our little one works fine for us. It is fiber optic which I love. There are no lights to mess with etc. So, here is a picture of our little tree and some of my favorite moose ornaments. Maybe with this new camera it will take better pictures lol.

For you Miss T

Merry Christmas Eve

Well, I was wondering when it would happen. I finally got sick.... ack lost my voice this morning and still haven't found it. Hurts to try to talk.... ate a little soup and a little bit of a turkey sandwich for dinner. But I did sneak in a piece of peanut butter
I got some great gifts today from employees and friends
75 dollars in cash from a few associates that put their money in together...... which was very nice as these are hourly employees that have families and such to buy for. And for them to think of me was very very very nice.
A cream turtle neck from an asst manager that works for me
An adorable purse that looks like santa's hat from one of my employees
Tons of baked goods from employees yummmm
Then I get home and there is a package from miss toni for me....inside was this awesome moose anyone who knows me knows I love anything and everything MOOSE. My entire house is decorated with a lodge theme and moose are my fav

She also sent a really cool french postage stamp rubber stamp sheet...awesome as we both love anything french and for me it is all about the le french fry
And two of the most darling stamps of women..... oh my god I love those. here is the site
T sent me Marti and Suzi Q. I love them so much.

So, tomorrow I will keep you updated on what Big Daddy has got me for Christmas. There were two more HUGE boxes under the tree when I got hom from work.. Rick says he didn't see the big guy in red drop them off. lol

The best MOOSE video ever

go here to see the best and most amazing video ever of a moose.
it is on my darling husband's blog

I promise it starts out with a hunter but I promise the moose was not shot. It is a very endearing video that just goes to show when something like this happens even the hunter doesn't have the heart to shoot the moose.

Valentine's Day

Tired of Christmas

With all the craziness of people being rude and just so nasty I am through with Christmas. Whatever happened to love one another? Work has been nuts, people are rude and I am toast.
So therefore in my opinion Christmas is here by officially OVER!!!
Now I am looking forward to Valentine's day.

Can I just brag for a minute? about my husband that is.
Not a Christmas gift, it is not my birthday heck it isn't even our anniversary. Rick is amazing just plain amazing. Three days ago he says let's go to Seattle to see Pike's market and then maybe we will go to the mountains. Okay I say that sounds great. Tickets are cheap enough so why not?
Well, yesterday he tells me oh by the way.... we will see Pike's market but honey I am taking you on a seven day cruise to Alaska out of Seattle!
What? are you serious? yes he says I am serious and I got us a penthouse suite on the Norwegian Pearl Cruise ship and you will get spa treatments..... excursions which include a Whale watch and honey we are even taking a train up the White Pass!!!!

No way I say and to which he says " Honey you are my light which leads my life" Okay so I made that part up but DAMN I am goin to Alaska!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Three tags of Christmas with more to come

In honor of Tim Holtz and his 12 tags of Christmas. I decided to make my own gift tags this year for Rick's presents. I still need to make a few more but for today this is what I got done. I found some really cool moose gift wrap paper and knew I had to do a lodge feeling tag.

here is a scan of the three of them... sorry it is sideways.

Okay this one I used Tim Holtz masks, Stampin Up stamp set, dew dros, K and Company chipboard tags, and Tim Holtz vintage stickles. Oh and Distressed inks by Tim Holtz.

This one I used the Distressed inks, rubberstamp, Grungeboard, vintage stickles all by Tim Holtz. Dew Drops from and paperclip ( who knows)

This one I used Distressed inks by Tim Holtz, Stampin up stamp set, Dew drops, chipboard from above, Masks and a inkadinkadoo rubber stamp.

I think Rick likes them and yes I plan on using them next year too.. lol

Bulova Customer Service

Can I just say how much I love Bulova? What fantastic Customer Service they have. I had a watch that Rick bought me as a wedding gift and the band broke. They no longer make this beautiful tri color watch. He ended up buying me a new one from bulova and I wear that but for some reason the one that he bought for a wedding gift well, I wanted that one to wear all the time.
So, I took a chance and wrote a letter explaining my situation. Wrote on the outside of the envelope to the CEO of Bulova or the nicest person at Bulova.

Well, two weeks later a little box appeared at my door and guess what was inside it? MY WATCH TOTALLY repaired. No note, no nothing so I don't know who to thank.
However, if anyone from Bulova ever shows up here by googling Bulova I just want to say
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Saw the movie once when I was a kid. Haven't seen it since then. Just one of those movies you wished you had in your library. Toni has challenged me to work on that piece for myself. I can't wait to work on it.

Tim Holtz Altered Spice Rack

I took a spice rack that I purchased at TJMaxx and altered it for my Tim Holtz Idea-ology items. It just seemed like that tackle box wasn't good enough for my Tim Holtz items.
If you want directions on how to do this just let me know and I will be happy to send them to you. I so love this spice rack.
Hope you do too.

Crop Stop December Submission

Here is my submission for Cropstop I loved this kit. When they asked me to do it again for December I got so excited then the kit arrived and I was bouncing from the ceiling. This kit is totally awesome. I decided to turn it into a canvas of Rick and Dakota. Hope you like it
