Moving Time…

I bought a domain name and am creating a website and new blog too.  Please visit me in my new place…

Bad, bad blog writer!

What a bad blog owner I am.  Poor neglected little bog. I’ve been a little busy, and my computer has been a little slow so I’ve also avoided posting just a tad.  I haven’t sold a graphics package yet, though it is still early.   It’s been raining so much here lately that the kids can’t get outside.  I want to make some pillow case dresses and have Zoe model them outside, but again – rain.   We’ve had two soccer games and two practices cancelled and rescheduled for tonight and tomorrow – but, it looks like it’s rain again.  April showers bring May flowers though, right? 

The Ultimate Blog Party

So there is a party, and it started without me??? Wha?? We can’t have that! It’s The Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Well it’s nearly 1:30 in the morning here and I’ve got a touch of insomnia so come on in and we’ll talk for a spell and then we’ll head out to visit more parties. ( Only a couple days left!)

My name is Angela. That’s me, up there at the top of your page. I’m 26, have three beautiful kids, two cute yet annoying cats, and one incredible boyfriend! Come, I’ll introduce them…

The guy on the left is Bradley, my 10 year old. he’s a handsome guy and will do anything to make you laugh. He loves to show off and loves trying to be all grown up. He also just won a blue ribbon for a 4-H presentation in school on how to make an Origami Bird. Ask him about it and he’ll have you folding paper in no time!

To the right is Jarod, who just turned 6 in January. Your typical Kindergarten kid who loves making jokes and being silly. He also loves soccer and being the “boss” of his little sister.

This is my “mini-me”, Zoe. She turns 4 in a couple of months and makes sure that everyone knows her birthday is “on a Monday”. She stays at home with me every day and paints, sings, plays, and draws. She also loves telling everyone that what she did today was “Stay at home with my Momma!”

Uh-Oh, the cats are hiding, they like to hide when new people come over, they may make an appearance later. Let’s find Russell. He’s probably in the basement tuning his guitar to offer up some live entertainment! Woohooo.

Here he is now…

Just as I suspected, tuning that guitar. Russell is a wonderful musician and an incredible person all around. He takes care of me and the kids and supports us in everything we do. We are, of course, his number one fans. He’s ready to play a song for you now, enjoy!

Well, I hope you enjoyed your stay and I hope you’ll visit again. I’m sure I’ll run into you again! This was a lot of fun and the prizes, even better! Here is what I would choose, what would you choose?

  • Judy is offering a $25 gift certificate to Amazon – that would be nice!
  • Chocolate! Who doesn’t want chocolate???
  • Hick Chicks Soap Barn is offering a Skin Care Kit – ooh la la I LOVE soaps and lotions!

If I were to win and these were already taken I would happily accept anything that isn’t really related to a baby, since my baby is almost 4 years old. For example numbers: 3, 4, 7, 14, 15, 135, 138, and 151


My Eyes…

Good Stuff at Good Will! for a buck!

I went to our Good Will Thrift Store last night in search of project ideas. I found a few things to change into other things. Reduce, Reuse, and REPURPOSE! Woohooo.

From the Dollar Rack, I found this shirt. I think it is hideous in it’s original form, but love the print…

Sew… I few snips and stitches later, I have this fantastic form fitting top!

Then there was this. Again, blech! But I knew immediately it would make an adorable dress for Miss Priss…

Voila! Check out this little HAM!

Favorite Friday Photos 2/15/2008

Every Friday I’m going to post photos that I love. Starting today!

This is Russell, hiding from the camera at Macado’s. Turned out to be a great picture. Definitely going to have to be included in some album art.
This is my brother, DJ (DJay) whatever, or however he chooses to spell it. I literally had to beg him to let me take a picture of him for my mom. He gave me a goofy grin. Mom will love it.
