My homage to Erica

I decided to go ahead and post this even though it isn't anywhere near as beautiful as Erica's paintings. She inspired me to do a self portrait with my favorite colors. I added eyeshadow and blush too. A little bella bling and some primas. I also added some torn paper and then decoupaged that.

Wowzer great couple of mail days

The first one is my order from European Papers, Bombshell stamps, and a RAK from a friend at AAWA Kathy. See how cute this little melting pot is for the beeswax? 8.95 for the pot and the wax is only 2.50 a cake. woo hoo
HAHAHAHA at last finally my Sis Miss T is letting me borrow her inkadinkadoo italian farmhouse stamp since mine went missing. Note to this stamp
I just love love love this stamp. Thanks T I will return it in my next box to you.
And the bird tags.... Can't wait to use these.

A few changes

As you can see SBS 11 is gone yet many of my sisters blogs are still here. Why you ask ? because we made friends through SBS11 and I want to keep you on here. The others were blogs that were not posted on frequently so I removed them.
I am sorry if anyone has hurt feelings I truly wanted for everyone to have a friendship like those I developed with the ones I kept. Yet, due to everyone's hectic life and trust me I understand that.... I removed those that you know didn't post often on their blogs. So with that said I am stepping down from SBS 11 as SBS 11 however, those friends I made well...... you are now part of my friend list and not some online group!!!!!!!!!

How does that sound??????????

I did it I did it....

This morning BD and I went out to breakfast and on the way...... the POST OFFICE. EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING went postal today.
So, Carolina, Susan,Cheryl,Carla and Miss T your stuff is on it's way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be on the lookout in the mail!!!!!

Sorry it took so long I have this phobia of Post Offices...umm not really but I do hate lines.

This amazing card is from Carla. Carla, your cards are unbelievable!!!!!!
A great fun mail day today


Everyone wants to know about the
ACMOORE has them on sale until tomorrow for only 14.99!!!!!
If you don't have an acmoore call their customer service and they will honor the price online. I know I am getting a few more too. These are so wonderful to store things in. I love them


Emily over at just listed THREE new Bellas. Latte bella, yoga bella and crafty bella. I just hate it that shipping is 9.55 that is crazy. But I do love my bellas so I guess I will have to bite the bullet. Anyone else want any Bellas we can split the shipping cause I can tell you we can mail the bellas to each other for like 1.00 oy vey.
Let me know by Sunday cause I am ordering on Sunday. Hugs Veronica
if more than one wants bellas we can just divide the shipping by how many want them. I can either do it or someone else. And I have paypal so I can get the money to you or you can paypal me the funds.

I'm Back

So the conference went smoothly and finally I am home!!!!! Very long two days but fun never the less. They had an artist there doing drawings so I stayed up long enough to stand in line and have one done. So there you go... so Mary Tyler Moore like right????? Today I had off work so I went shopping.
I got this really cool rack for paint, and glimmer mist today at acmoore for 15.00 bucks wow... I then bought a bunch of paint to fill up some of the holders. I have my tim holtz paints and ink pads in the bottom.

Back to work tomorrow but the rest of today...... REST!!!!!!!

A little pocket change can kill ya

So, my adorable Big Daddy ( aka husband) surprised me with something extra in my paypal account. So, of course I had to go do a little shopping right. I mean you can't leave money in your paypal account for too long right? I mean I think there is a rule that says any extra money you have you must spend in like a week right???? lol

So remember that site I sent you to a few weeks ago?
I found the cutest little beeswax warmer and beeswax blocks to use and also a really cool package of assorted sized tags to use. This way I can save my UTEE melting pot for my UTEE. I was really getting tired of cleaning it out each time I needed to switch from UTEE to Beeswax.

Next I think I will have to order some Bombshell stamps and some River City rubber stamps and LAST BUT NOT least I am going to order another one of the Italian Farmhouse stamps that I KNOW I LOST.... Miss T said no you sent it to me but I had my own too. Thanks T for offering to share but I want my own unless of course we are both moving to the lake and sharing a studio then hey.......

That is Miss T and her Big Daddy Double BB's plan and of course mine and my Big Daddy's plan.
Vacation home on the lake with a shared studio. Sounds like heaven right?????? Yeah that is what I thought.

Sisters you gotta love them!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My anything but a tag for AAWA

So, the rules were you could make anything but your standard tag. I found this cloth tag in the parking lot at work and thought wow, I could so make something out of that. The vintage photos are actually on shrinky dink.

Well, here you go my AAWA anything but a Tag mingle.

Hope you like

You ladies are the best and of course any guys that visit

So, I have received a few emails saying .... Where are you? What is going on there are not any new posts...etc

I am here I promise..... I will share a few things with you

First.... Major conference that only happens once a year starts next Tuesday and Wednesday in Baltimore

Second..... A huge process that I have to attend for work the following Monday and Tuesday in D.C.

Third back to D.C. Thursday and Friday of the same week listed above for some more things.

So, to be honest I am totally booked up until the 4th of April. Then it will be smooth sailing after and I can get all those canvases I made in the mail to everyone and I still need to send out my tag to my AAWA mingle partner. I also still need to send out the Simone Beck book and I have a Box the size of a small house to send to Miss T. ( sorry honey if you want to see what is in the box I will post a picture of it all!!!!!!)

Today I am writing and practicing my speech that I will have to do for the conference. But I did sneak out and buy this amazing book.

I promise I will be back in full swing April 4th and in between I will try and do some postings.

hugs to all

100 ATC envelopes for only 2.95

and free shipping ifyou order only one.

Woo hoo something I really won

Woo hoo not only did I get this from my sister Toni but also from Vicki and Gilly.
Thanks you guys you really made my day.
Today is one of those days that I really needed this so I love you all.

Ooooppps I guess I was suppose to name five to send this to. But there is one problem that would be 15 I need to send it to which is just about everyone. So everyone you have won an award. All my SBS Sisters and all my friends. Congratulations.

So I didn't win after all.

But that is okay. You see I am leaving my post see number 8 on my previous post where everyone wanted to see what I sent to win with. As you can see I honestly said I have no idea I think it was from the number thing you have to add together to post on her blog. I thought it must me a game or lottery type thing and you win if you get the number of the day, week or whatever.
What happened was she accidently sent out over 5000 emails saying you won and pick up your prize. Well, as soon as I got that email I emailed her back saying heck let me go get that post first so you can see it in depth
here is the email
NO WAY THat is too too tooo cool..... oy vey..instead of my surprise can you make me an oyveyabella...hahahahaha

I TOTALLY LOVE YOU EM wow 15.00 I am in bella heaven. mWAH

so you can see I was surprised and had no idea why? Well, now we know. The sad part is and I think you all know me by now I am a VERY HONEST person. I had placed an order last night as soon as I read her blog today I sent her an email to CANCEL my order. I will not ever take advantage of someone's honest mistake.
I appreciate all your posts saying congratulatons but as I posted on the previous post comment section I stated I had no idea
sheeewww I feel better I just wanted to get this out.

Some ATC's and Ikea storage spice jars

Above left a tag from my fairy mingle at AAWA from Barbara. The middle an ATC from Barbara at AAWA. Far right a welcome to AAWA from Teresa
My Ikea button spice jars. I love these things and you can either store them up or on their sides.

Just look how many buttons they hold. Again if you have an Ikea around you these are totally awesome for storing things in.

And this one reminds me of Carolina

Such an angel.

Carolina ROCKS

I want to make sure everyone hears this....CAROLINA you are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found an Ikea blogging friend who is going to pick up my jars for me.

Pick out your theme for a CANVAS girl cause you so deserve it.

Don't forget to send me your home addy.

Oh my gosh, I am so excited I just had to jump down from the cloud I am on. I don't think anyone realizes how useful these silly little jars are. I have sorted my buttons by color out in the first twelve I got but guess what? I needed more. Carolina lives near not one but TWO Ikea's wow!!!!! you lucky duck
thank you from the bottom of my heart
