Thank You Friends!

Thanks for all my birthday wishes. Plus I had over 30 wishes from FB too! Wow! You like me, you really like me! lol

My brother dropped by the cross stitch shop yesterday with Kelly and little Terrie to wish me a happy birthday, they brought me cupcakes, balloons and presents! I'm so blessed to have a wonderful family! Thank you Kelly for the beautiful watch and earring set! I've worn them both today!

I will be off to Rome for the next couple of days. John, Jacob and I are heading to Berry College! It's SOAR for him and we are packing to get ready. He gets to sleep overnight at the campus while John and I have hotel reservations. Jason will be the man of the house, no parties young man!

I'm worried about how poor little Butters is gonna do while I'm gone. He's such a pitiful little cat, he doesn't let anyone but me touch him. I sure hope he isn't too traumatized by Tuesday night when we return.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

Alora's Birthday Pic! Plus a sneak peek..........

Our little princess Alora turns "1". Wished I could have been there. They live in PA, which is a long way from GA. Happy Birthday Sweetpea! Aunt Donna loves you!

The Stitch Store is having Camp I Wanna Stitch this weekend and I designed the little firecracker kit for the camp! If you'd like one, let me know! It's my first piece that I designed. Very quick and fun to make!

Butters is very needy this morning, so in between me holding him and Daisy grooming him, I'm trying to post today's blogging goody. It's funny to see Daisy grooming him, he's so big compared to her. But, in Daisy's eyes I guess Butters is her baby. So sweet!

I got a treat yesterday, I've never had a pedicure before, so my sister Judy treated us to a girls day out for my birthday present. My birthday is not till tomorrow, but I don't mind early presents. lol Man, I have ugly toes, but I loved having my feet done! It will not be the last time!

Well, gotta go to the store, so have a great summer day!

My Poor Car is Struggling to Survive with 2 Teens!

My poor car is only 4 years old, but it looks older due to all the dings and dents and scratches that it has incurred with Jason and Jacob learning to drive. We've put Jacob on the fast track to get his license before he goes off to college. But, after today, maybe it will be better for all of GA if he waits to get his license. Yup, totally ripped off the passenger side door mirror. Scratched the hood and down the passenger front panel. Sigh...............:( This poor car is destined to be destroyed! I'd only had the car for 3 months when Jacob dented the front left panel. 2 separate incidents with rocks busting my windshield, Jason denting the under door on the passenger side, Jason hitting a curb and blowing the tire and messing up the wheel. I too have added my mark, though it wasn't really my fault, a lady from school was helping me back out of the crowded school parking lot, and she says, your in the clear, NOT! I backed into the fire hydrant, so that dent is mine, but that's the only one from me!
Plus having boy drivers on the policy is just about killing us, $$$$$$! I have not turned in anything because I have been fearful of our rates going thru the roof! Or being cancelled on! Plus we still have 1 more year to pay on it! Hang in there car! We really need you!
Lord, please watch over my boys when they borrow my car and watch over all the other drivers that pass them on the road! Amen!
Night friends!

My Jar of Stitchy Goodness!

I met a new friend on Saturday at The Stitch Store, and while we were talking about our love of Blackbird Designs, I told her how I like to store my pinkeeps and stockings. I do not have a little tree yet to display my stitched goodies, I use this big jar I purchased from Wal-Mart. It helps keep the dust off of them and I don't have to worry about a kitty tasting my treasures! lol

Well, concerning the fleas, I only found 7 so far since we bombed the cats and the house! That is still alot in my mind, but they were slow moving, so maybe the stuff is working.

I'm having a wonderful day and I'm hoping you are too!

I think I've won....

We are in a battle against the hated flea! They are driving my pets crazy. I triple whammied them yesterday. Capstar first, then Program tablet, then Liberty 50(new topical flea treatment since Frontline and Advantage are not doing the job!) We sprayed the yard plus the carpets in the bedrooms. Plus we bathed all 4 critters. That was a job in itself! This morning the animals seemed quiet, no digging or scratching, so I hope we got control over them. Having hardwood floors has probably helped keep them down, I just hope this stuff lasts longer than a week. I spent over $130 to prep the house and animals. Whew! Crossing my fingers!

It's my Saturday to work at the shop, hope you can stop by to see me!
Have a blessed weekend friends!
ps:Blogger put Daisy's picture in sideways.

A little bit more on Daisy, Daisy....

I tell you what, I so love those Belle Soie threads. MMmmmm, silk threads! Stitches like butter, so soft and glides thru my linen. I've been stitching on this piece, plus a special design that I have designed myself. I'm hoping that it will be for this upcoming Camp I Wanna Stitch. Cross your fingers friends! Stitching is finished, now tomorrow will be spent putting everything together!

We are gearing up for SOAR at the end of the month. John, Jacob and I will travel up to Rome to visit the college and Jacob will get registered. He gets to sleep on campus while we will get a hotel room for the night. 1 mini vacation! lol

Last night was a Mary Kay spa type night. I got a mini neck massage, had my eyebrows threaded. (I was surprised that it didn't really hurt, just felt funny!) It was fun and I got to see the newest upcoming colors for summer. I love the new green eye shadow!

Well, here we are again, after midnight once again! I've got to get out of this habit, but it's so nice getting to sleep in everyday and pretty much doing what I want for a change! YES!

Have a great night friends!

New Starts

I picked up Hares Christmas and all the goodys to start on this project. I'm wanting to have this finished in time for Christmas. Plus I've got all the stuff to start Merry Skater! Ah, Christmas is in the air.

Who has seen the newest preview of JCS? I like the LHN and CCN designs. I can't wait till the Halloween issue. I love Halloween stuff too. Having the summer off will give me time to stitch, for which I'm grateful. I haven't been able to stitch much since all of the graduation hoopla. Thankfully graduation is over and I can get back to normal again!

We are gonna grill out steaks tonight! So I'm heading into the kitchen to start homemade mac & cheese!

See ya later!
ps: I met a fellow blogger at work yesterday! A big shout out to the striped rose! This is Jacob's friend, she's moving and we will miss her!
