Count your blessings

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!!! okay, happy day before thanksgiving; I won't be blogging tomorrow most likely, as I'll be stuffing my face with mashed patatoes! (NO TURKEY FOR ME!)
So, what are you thankful for today? (and everyday for that matter? we certainly can't be thankful just one day of the year, now can we?)
*for having to go out in the middle of the night, because it means I have an adorable dog that is in my home and not racing or being put down.
*for stupid political commentators that I disagree with on television, because it means we have the right of free speech and can voice oUr opinion and make a difference.
*for the extra weight I carry, because it means I am not starving
*for bickering with my husband over silly things like laundry, because it means I have someone I love and we share a life together
*for thousands of photos yet to be organized, because it means I'll be busy scrapping memories for a long time, while continuing to create more

I wish you all a happy day, and hope you have much to be thankful for!

a couple new cards

I just couldn't resist making cards with some of the new photos I bought at an antique shop in Omaha. Cara told me to check out SECOND CHANCE ANTIQUES, and I'm so glad I did!!!!! I just wish I had more time!

The first card will be for my Dad's birthday----so, Dad if your reading this--close your eyes!

The second card has a quote from the movie SWINGERS inside,
"you're so money, and you don't even know it!" It just fit so perfect with the picture--I had to!!!
Old pictures are tons of fun---no matter if they your family or not! Legacy Magazine encourages readers to "adopt" pictures--and create stories about the people in the pictures--I think that's a brilliant idea. It makes me so sad to see these pictures just sitting in shoe boxes in a store--when they could be pieces of our art--or we could create new memories for them, with them-------------------let them inspire you, you never know what direction they'll take you!

All dressed up and no where to go.........

or something like I made this really pretty card for my sister last night (if I do say so myself) She's going to Paris with her boyfriend in December--oohh lala, romantic, right? Well, I was about to mail it and I'm informed that she's no longer going--I guess there was a change in plans (he had a convention or something there and can't go anymore-or it's changed--or whatever yada yada and they're going somewhere else in February, or something)...............which is all rather sad and depressing, but seeing as I'm feeling like a rather selfish scrapper does not negate the point that I made this beautiful card which I ALREADY WROTE IN THE INSIDE OF "paris in december!?!? how romantic! have fun! love, chelsea" (so I can't send it elsewhere)......
So, how do you so, "AH SHIT!" in French?

long time no blog

well, I'm a busy girl, what can I say? I know I know, that's a lame excuse! I was in Texas from Monday thru wednesday, and flew from there to Omaha--and came home from Omaha last night. I think my dog was happier to see my than my husband--he licked me (the dog)

I was lucky enough to have dinner on wednesday night in Omaha with none other than THE Cara Bresette-Yates. She's just as wonderful and cute as can be! We got to the restaurant at 7:30, and I don't think we even ordered any food until 9 because we were just such chatters! Cara made me the CUTEST card! AND AND AND, she brought me back velvet ribbon from paris---yes PARIS!!!!!!!!! C'est vraiment merveilleux! J'aime le ruban!
(I'll put a picture up after I scan it!)

just another manic monday

wo-aho, wish it were sunday..............

Mondays suck, period. Why is it that I can never sleep well on sunday night--tossing, turning, insomnia.....and before I know it, it's monday morning, and I'm grumpy....and I don't mean that in a cute 7 dwarfs grumpy sorta way, I mean "get the heck out of my way and give me coffee before I stick this high heel where the sun don't shine" kind of grumpy.

so, on that lovely note, hope everyone's having a great day!
