Happy, Happy Wednesday to you all! I am in high-motion-stress-run-crazy-lady mode today (well for the past 3 days) getting ready for CHA, my classes and all the other stuffs that need to be finished. And my hubby has been traveling this week (geesh what the heck was he thinking huh lol) so he’s not any help and of course my teens aren’t much help either. They’re more worried that they have clean clothes and food they like to eat….ummm whatever!!! But being the good mommy I am (uh huh yeppers I am) I finished every scrap of laundry, filled house with groceries and easily prepared food so no one STARVES to death! Even the animals have a fully stocked cabinet of treats & food. I leave early tomorrow morning and THANKFULLY I have a straight flight to Long Beach, CA and get in at noon Cali time. Tomorrow evening I have dinner with some friends and then my roomies Marti & Tina get in around noon on Friday to get the party started. Here’s the deal with CHA…everyone is on Facebook in the very late evenings…it’s a sickness—we FB each other even if we are in THE SAME ROOM….so if you want to see all the crazy goings-ons then log on…cuz trust me people get NUTTY when they are away from home, too much caffiene or other beverages, and not enough sleep does ODD things to people. I’ve seen it happen year after year and I never fail to be amused…and yeah sometimes I AM THE AMUSEMENT! But I never drink alcohol while at CHA, just soda…I’d rather watch the “others” LOL and alcohol just makes me sleepy & I don’t need to be any more tired than I am KWIM. If I do have a drink I’ll have a glass of wine but I’m not much of a drinker….I’m MUCH more FUN if I stick to SODA which is always my beverage of choice. (hmmpppftttt I had someone tell me that my drinking soda was NOT very classy…excuse me…well then I don’t want to be classy I told them LOL..I mean really) SHEESH! LIke telling me would really MAKE ME CHANGE OR CARE MUCH…I THINK NOT hahaha!
And I have a certain friend (oooh lordy she may kill me but I won’t say her name ahemmm hee hee) who wandered aimlessly down the street in Chicago asking random strangers if they “knew that Stevie Nicks was gay and were they surprised by it or not?” LMBO…I literally was on the sidewalk laughing my bum off…she doesn’t drink often or very much but it was JUST enough to get her to act ODD hee hee (I call it the CHA phenomenon). She may shoot me for sure now for sharing that but lordy it was funny---we’ll see what she does this time! So usually I head home from CHA totally exhausted and my jaw usually locks up from too much laughing, talking & smiling…I kid you not…that’s a site for sure..not a pretty one either LOL! And my pal Marti might be smothered this year…she’s a real handful that small lil’ chica that she is….she loses every SINGLE ONE of her hotel keys, every year first of all (last year she lost it before we even got to the room) and she has odd hours. She usually gets up around 3:30 or 4 am here at home so at CHA on West Coast hours she wants to wake up at 1 am and SKYPE her family…OMG…we have screamed & thrown things at her to shut her up LOL. So now she goes down to the lobby in her jammies, gets her coffee and does her stuff on her laptop until around 7 am when the rest of us “normal” folk wake up. In LA last year we were walking to CHA and a lady at the corner asked her (in complete seriousness) if she was “medically a dwarf”? OMG I and our friends bust out laughing cuz Marti IS under 5 feet but she will KICK YOUR ARSE---so Marti says “NO” and the lady says “well I think you are considered a dwarf at your size” and Marti says “NO I’m just short, my family is short”…at that point we knew to run….we were laughing hysterically and Marti was evil-eyeing us so we RAN…she SKEERS ME sometimes LOL and she KNOWS where I live bwahahahaha But she’s my smurfette buddy & I wuv her!! Ohhh the fun that is coming soon….stay tuned for all THAT!
PS....yes it was NOT a good Football Sunday in the Dean household...hmmmpppffft...neither of my teams won sadly...boohoo for the Ravens although they played awesome and I feel bad for the kicker Cundiff. But I will still watch the SuperBowl but I'll be rooting for the GIANTS!!!!! LOL!
-I had to get a larger room for my Copic Classes at CHA so I have a few spots that are open if anyone would like to come. See details at www.cmcroad.com and then just email me ok! We are sure to have LOTS OF FUN!
Today I’m sharing a JUST FOR FUN card…I rarely get to play just because these days (and that’s ok I’m not complaining…just stating LOL) and I picked this NEW Tiddly Inks digi stamp called “Wryn-Grow a Little Love”. This is a new character and she’s just adorable…Christy Croll always does the cutest lil’ images. I decided to make a card that’s appropriate for Valentine’s Day or Just Because!
My papers are from MME’s “Lost & Found: Market Street”—I love the fun mix of patterns and soft colors. I used my Heart Nesties (yep I bought them a couple years ago..I tend to stay away from dies of shapes like this but I love the hearts and stars nesties) and then sponged the edges with ink to “shabby” it up. The border trim is done with a MS punch, pearls, a bow and sentiment from PTI.
Awww isn’t she sweet….see more of Wryn HERE!? I colored her with Copics R22,R20,R00 / BG13,BG11,BG10 /Y21,E35,E31,E50. Then I stickled her dress up to bling it up prettily of course!
That’s it for me today! I will try to post some newsies while I’m away and I have some projects next week for the newest Gina K release too—so stop on by. Otherwise you can follow along with my trip on Facebook & Twitter LOL! Have a great weekend!
