Super Cute Blog Candy

Y'all have to check out the blog candy offered by Michelle O. The stamps are just too cute. The card she created looks a little like Eeyore.

**My Bella Sistah Rocks Again**

Well after dinner yesterday our doorbell rang. It was the UPS guy walking away & I looked down & saw a package. It was addressed to me but the sender was Stampin! UP. Confused I opened the package. Well it was a punch I had mentioned to my super duper great Bella sis Mel. Upon finding out she was a consultant I had told her I would really like this punch. Well she ordered it for me. I am so excited. I will now be able to make some great cards that you can add a gift card inside of. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a sweetie!!!

Bella for Alzheimer's

Cammie has posted a great opportunity for a great cause. I have made this Bella card for the great staff that help support the patients and their families. The blog candy she has is out of this world. What a great chance. You will see items donated by High Hopes Stamps, Scor-Pal and JustRite Stampers just to name a few. Some very talented people like Cambria Turnbow, Denise Marzee and Jessica Roan have also donated. Check it out & join in.

Mel also Tagged Me!!

My Bella sistah Mel tagged me too. She did say sorry, but she wanted more info on me. I am not sure who else to tag. Some of the people I tagged don't have a clue who I am but I have admired their work and have left comments. I am more than happy to give her more info though. So just for you go:

1) I went to college for a year. Met a guy while in college & we moved in together during that summer. Long story short we lived together for a few months but I left him & moved to WA. I called my bff Michelle around midnight one night (she was in WA) and was on a plane by noon the next day. Never looked back!!!

2) I met my husband three months after I move to WA. He was my blind skiing date. We have been together ever since. We were married young (19 & 20).

3) We had planned on having two kids but it took me two year to get pregnant and during my ultrasound I was told my baby might have trisomy 21 and if he did, would most likely die inutero but if born would be so mentally retarted & deformed, he would die within the first year. Well we had an amnio done & needless to say Nic is perfect, happy & very healthy (see pictures from previous posts). Our good friends also lost their oldest son Brian, when Nic was 11 months old. Brian was only 3 1/2 and for all intense purposes was my first child too. With all of that trama, I in my strange way didn't want to have another child again & that is why Nic is my only!! You just can't improve on perfection!!

4) I love to to camping but as I get older, it isn't as comfortable sleeping on an air mattress as it once was. I do like sitting around the campfire. I love the campfire!!! It is so relaxing.

5) My cb nickname (given to me by Michelle) as a kid was lightening legs. I was a tall stick when I was younger. Her nickname was short shit, because she was & still is short. We had a party when she finally reached 5'!!!

6) I was born in Boise, Idaho; was moved to Missouri City, Texas (suburb or Houston) against my will by my parents the summer before 8th grade but ended up having a great time; lived 1 1/2 years in Logan, Utah and have lived in Washington state since then (Tacoma, Federal Way, Kent & Puyallup).

7) I have great parents who live in Salt Lake City, UT.

8) I Love the Bellas!!!!!

I've Been Tagged - WOW

I am flattered!!! Debby just tagged me and I have never been tagged before. This is cool.

Here are the rules: 1) Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog. 2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. 4) Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1) I am an only child. My best friend Michelle is my sister though.
2) I have been happily married to my guy Steve for almost 20 (this Feb) years!!!!
3) I just turned 40 in July and really don't feel like I thought a 40 year old should feel.
4) We have one super great son, Nic, who is in the 9th grade. He is quite tall (takes after my side of the family), a good student (is in all honors classes). What can a proud mom say!!!
5) I am an avid...avid reader. I love romance (all) & spy/intrege books. I also love Harry Potter.
6) I love to do crafts. I have really gotten into cards with the bellas group & am having so much fun. My crafting movie is all Harry Potter's, The Bourne series and Casino Royal.
7) I used to carefully open my Christmas presents to find out what they were & then very carefully retape them up. Bad Mae!!!

Whom do I tag.....

Melanie she introduced me to Bellas

Thanks again!!! This has been fun.

I Won & My Bellas

I was so shocked that I won this blog candy. Hilmarose picked me & look at the goodies I got. The last time I ever won anything was in high school & I was the correct number caller into the radio station & won a record. WOW is all I can say & thanks Hilmarose!!!

My first Bella order came yesterday!!! I am super stoked & am ready to create some great stuff. I love to get goodies. I am in the middle of altering a box to hold the cards I make & receive and I have a special gift to make for my bella sistah (heee heee) to get done first then I can create some bella cards for y'all to see. Y'all have been great & I appreciate the encouraging comments!!!

My first Bella

This was my first bella creation. I sent this off to my bella sistah Mel & I am hoping she will get her mail before she looks at my blog. She is off visiting New York & didn't want to post this any earlier. I found a great idea on a blog to make an image holder. It has nice accordian sides and a little velcro closure. I added CTMH liquid glass on her dress and the blue of the suitcase. I also added a few bellas images I am hoping she didn't have.

I CAN SEE!! & Blog Candy Alert

My right contact came in late yesterday & I was able to grab it after work. It sure made driving easier!!! What would I do without contacts?!!!

Irina has posted a great blog candy offer. Check out her website. Some very nice cards posted!!!

Half Blind for a few days...

As I was getting ready for work yesterday & doing my hair, my bangs were poking me in the eyes. Both contacts decided to revolt at the same time. I took out the left & washed it off then put it back in. Did the same for the right one. I started to dry my hair & noticed thing were quite blurry. Some time in that first few seconds the right lens fell out & it is nowhere to be found. I searched & searched, tried again at lunch & Steve even looked after work. It is lost in some contact hole in our bathroom. I have such a strong prescription that it has to be ordered, made and mailed to the eye doc. Thank goodness I don't have to drive very far. Just to work & back (less than a mile round trip) and to Nic's school & back (about a mile or so each way). I am hoping to get the new lens tomorrow or Thursday & will be glad to see with both eyes again.

I was told my the eye doc last visit that lasik is probably not an option with my high prescription plus there even if I could have it there is no way I would wear just my coke bottle glasses for six weeks to determine if I could have the surgery or not. I am just too vain & proud of it!!! These are thick glasses & I remember all the teasing I received from the first grade on until I was able to wear contacts in 8th grade. Some scars never go away. You would think at my age I shouldn't care but that is not so. We are talking seriously thick glasses people.

My 1st Bella Posting

Ok....I am very nervous. What do y'all think? I would like honest answers please and any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated (I won't be crushed completely, lol). I altered a composition notebook. I had seen this on the Close To My Heart billboard and created some for my open house this coming Saturday but I wanted one special for me!!! This is my second bella created, the first I am saving until my bella sistah receives it before I post it. I am having a hard time finding the right color for bellas skin. This bella has spent the summer in the sun & has a great tan.

I used CTMH papers, ribbon & the new alphabet ready for coloring or inking. I love them. The markers are from various makers.

Deck Progress

We are getting closer to the end....Steve is doing an excellent job. Notice the detail of the handrail. We both just love how this looks. My husband does great work!!! Don't look at the backyard of dirt. It will have grass next spring. We thought we could do grass this summer but it didn't work out that way.

9th Grade....WOW!!!
Nic's first day of school was yesterday. It is hard to believe he is now in 9th grade and this is his last year at Kalles Junior High. Next year he will be in high school. Can you believe how tall he is???
Well he is running to cath the bus. He heard it coming up the road as he
opened the garage door. What a way to get your heart pumping. He was probably blaming me since I had to get the first picture then he forgot his shirt for football practice. GO KALLES TYEES!!!
