Something by Mail....???

Ok so I love Jawbone of my favorite podcasts. I had no idea that Len was so talented...seriously I never investigated really I knew he was some sort of artist or illustrator, but I had no idea. And now, I do believe Perry will be watching him draw Monsters for hours. We may no have to pay for art school if Len keeps creating videos, of him drawing. We hope to get a monster during round 2.
So our first 2 Ugly dolls.....I mean Nonsensical Creatures by mail, are almost complete. My friend Heather asked me to make 2 for her girls. I was a bit leery since my artist creates when he wants to create and rarely when you ask him to. Well I asked and he delivered about 6 drawings 2 of which were specifically for the girls. So I hope after I'm done studying for this wonderful LOMA test I have to take on Tuesday, we can crank out some more that can be gimme a shout if you are in need of a nonsensical creature or a nonsensical bunny.
Oh and it's still Autism Awareness month and my friend Michelle and her son Jason were on the news in Cleveland....funny same place Len and Nora of Jawbone radio live too. Check out Michelle and Jason on the news. Do not give up, that's my motto when it comes to my kid, who is not autistic, but rather quirky, and has many of the same issues some autistic kids struggle with. He's made huge strides this year. Routine is the key. He's growing up, and I think it's time for hormones to start kicking in or something he had his second zit this week, poor kid barely even knows what it is, except dang it hurts, and OUUUUCH....why are you scubbing my face so hard.....he thought it was much cooler to have a "cars" bandaid on his chin than a huge zit....hee hee....I'd have to agree.

A Miracle?

I want God to perform a miracle, and save a little boys life. He does it everyday, so why not for this little boy? I don't know him, have never met him. I don't know his family. I just know that he just turned 13 and he's dying. And that many many women and men in the scrapbooking community all over the world pulled together to do something nice for the family with money and give aways. But what I think he needs the most is prayer. It just seems so unfair, everytime I think about it, it makes me really really sad. My brother died of leukemia when I was a year old, which was 37 years ago. So so so so much more is known now.....lives are saved everyday, so why not one more? Sorry, I just can't stop thinking about him.....God Bless Joey.

Our World

What kind of world do you What?
It's Autism awareness month. As the statistics grow more and more year after year, generally everyones lives are touched in some way by autism, whether it's your child, student, a friends child, someone knows someone. We need to be a world that is more aware! We can and should be doing more. Powerful video HERE.

God Had my Back

I think it was because I apologized....went and saw Nicole. As usual she was off the hook. Man I adore her. And to make it even more fun she's a hometown girl. So she throws in a little ebonics lingo to make me feel right at home. Downloaded some of her new stuff. She is truly a gift from God!

Public Apology

Ok I wanted to apologize for my bad attitude on Sunday. I'm sorry primarily to God. As I've spoken to a few people from church, and read some blogs, come to find out apparently I was the only one in the church possibly (besides my husband) with the bad attitude. So so many people were blessed....God truly show'd up. I was so flippin Grumpy I didn't see him, but he was there. Makes me think about how many times in our lives have we missed the blessing because we allowed Satan to ruin it by embracing a bad attitude? Or we allowed someone to get to us. Finished up the book of Daniel with Beth Moore brain hurts. Without that constant weekly study my brain is libel to atrophy. I needed that. I needed that reminder of who I am and that I have a job to do for God, no matter what the cost. A big fat reminder in tonights lesson was the wicked will stay wicked.'s so frustrating. How some people don't see the error of their ways. I can put it to them just as plain as day, like continue to live your life this way and it will catch up to you. Or just blatantly hand them some scripture printed steer them the right way. I did this at work once. I printed off
Philippians 2:14-15 "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe." I handed it to most people in my department....for the most part I believe there is only one other Christian in my department....didn't care. I swear people who work in cubical wonderland spend a big majority of their work day complaining about what someone else is or is not doing. Thus the reason I plug up my ears and work being oblivious to the world around me. I do not want to hear it. So my intentions upon completion of Daniel, something super simple, I'm not going to complain at work, and when other people do I'm going to call them out....plain and simple. Is complaining about it going to solve anything or are you just wasting my precious time?
Ok God so my big apology to you is I'm sorry for my complaining about Sundays overcrowding....the overcrowding meant more people could hear your message of salvation and join my team of non-complaining Christians. I believe many did, thank God cause I could sure use their help. Be Blessed!

Nothing sexier than a man who cleans.....I'm just saying. My living room is clean, a clean room, and some time to create, has put me in a better mood. Problem is, my designers on strike so making uglies is entirely up to me now....and I'm not as good at design. Look at these horrible creatures. I present to you the Ugly Scout, and Mildred. I might just keep cranking them out and sell keep your eyes peeled for something you might need in your home to scare off cock roaches.

Happy Grumpy Easter

Ok so I've been trying desperately to find my happy place all day. I'd find it for brief moments only for it to be stolen from me for whatever reason. Could be SATAN.....he's evil like that! He likes to use people to annoy me, strangers, family members, and friends. Oh he's quite crafty.
Like for instance. on Easter. It's nice people like to show up at church on Easter, and I prayed for them to find God there. But OH MY GOOD LORD, that's a lot of people. Somehow I find myself being slightly annoyed, like where are all these people every other sunday throughout the year? Am I selfish for thinking that? I feel selfish but can't help thinking that way. So maybe I should change my plans for Easter. A regular attendee should have an out on Easter.....and not feel guilty. Or I should choose a serving role I wouldn't normally do and just do that at church on Easter all day long? I guess crowds, packed parking lot, lots of people, grumpy husband, and more crowds= a grumpy me. I think I just need more chocolate.

That's Crisco the ugly bunny we made for Perry's teacher. Oh and I made an Ugly Scout for Perry's easter Basket.....His name is Cletus. Ugly dolls are way fun, maybe I'll sell them to raise money for cricut cartridges.....hummm.....good idea. Stay tuned.

Perry's Imaginary Friends

Oh, if you go HERE you'll see why the Scraparazzi has been camped out in my front yard all weekend.

Seriously the child cuts everything out! Another reason I miss the little 2 year old in this picture is because he had not mastered the art of scissor cutting. Isn't he precious?

Man it's been a while since I scrapped till the wee hours with my peeps. But I did this weekend. I didn't take many pics, but the ones I did take rather than create a boring collage like I have been doing. I thought I'd do something a little more fun in the spirit of embarrassing the heck out of my friends. Here's Stacie with her new hairdo! If you click on Stacie's head it should pop up a speech bubble...
