Housework Will Suck The Life Out of You

I'm exhausted today.

Something about driving to Torrington, Wyoming, watching an eclipse and then making a mad dash home to avoid traffic is tiring I guess!!  What a trip.  Me driving, and the other half using Google, Waze and any other driving app on his phone to direct me and avoid traffic.

At one point he said, "Turn here."
"Here?" I squeaked.  "There isn't a road here!"
"Well, according to the GPS, there is one."

I'm pretty sure that what we drove on was probably Farmer Brown's tractor road between his property and his neighbors.  But, to give the hubs his due ... it DID get us to the small reservoir that he had designated as our viewing area.  Had I not been so stressed about overturning the truck or getting stuck in mud, I would have taken a picture of the 12 turkeys that crossed the "road" right in front of us.

So instead of vacuuming myself, I settled for just coloring a picture of someone ELSE vacuuming!  I'm joining in the Catch The Bug Bingo Challenge.

I did the vertical row: Embossing (the little black strip separating my two DP is embossed with a zig-zag), Dots & Stripes and 3 Layers.

TMS 416: Coffee ... Best Meal of the Day!


I had to go to the doctor this morning.  One of the questions she asked was "How much caffeine are you having each day?"  Apparently, "umm, a lot" was not the answer she wanted to hear.  Time to cut back.  This will not be a good time for my family; pray for their survival!

I'm joining in the challenge over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches site.  I really liked the simplicity of the sketch and their sponsor is one of my very favorites.

Gerda Steiner Progressive-August


Now that I have more free time, I can once again participate in the progressive image challenges that I love so much.

This one is from Gerda Steiner.  The image is called, "I Didn't Eat It (Yet)."  If you buy the first image and make a card with it (which I had to do again, since I haven't played in three months) you will get the following month's image ... for free!

I'm using the sketch rom the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  It's a fun one.

SS: StarStampz


Good Morning, Sketch Saturday fans

It's Saturday and that means it's time for another challenge on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We have a fun new sketch and the return of Sarah from StarStampz.  Sarah is providing our winner with 3 images from her Etsty shop.

I'm using her sweet "Ice Cream and Balloons" as the image for my card.

I'm also joining in the "Keen on Neon" theme over on the Dragonfly Journeys blog.

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations and give them some love. I hope you will give the sketch a try!

Free Time ... Yay!!


I've had NO time for fun these last two month and before I start studying for the next item on my list, I thought that I would squeeze in a few cards.

I bought this paper specifically for this image ... how sad am I?  OK, but look ... they both have unicorns on them.  How matchy-matchy and perfect is THAT?!!  Totally worth it.

I'm joining in the sketch fun over on the Catch The Bug Challenge blog.

SSW 118 Cute As A Button


Happy Wednesday.

Can you believe that it's August already?  Yikes.  Where did the summer go?!!  My sons are already bemoaning the lack of summery days left to enjoy.  They go back in just 2 short weeks.  I'm actually excited by the date.  I will be done with school in 3 short days.  Yay.

Today is also the start of a new challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.  This week we are sponsored by Cute As A Button.

Come join the fun.
