Hello! Yesterday was a fab day for me! Warning this post is a long one but at the end it's worth the read! A very busy day, I'll give you a quick rundown. Started the day at Stay and Play, got some groceries (side note when I came home saw that I was overcharged $18 make sure to always check your bill!!) fed kiddies lunch put Carter down for a nap, went and got Easter pictures taken at 3:30 (only appointment I could get! And boy do I ever find pictures stressful!) Came home after 4 to a message from my aunt that they are in the area and going to pop in! Quick visit with aunt and uncle, than I rushed and worked a Cosmetic and Fragrance gala event in the Fragrance counter! Came home and made 23 Easter Treats for Ariel's class! Surprise visit from my brother at 11 and I got to bed very late! No wonder my head hurts today! I was going to go for a power walk but I think I am just going to take it easy today! Yesterday was a fab day for me because of 2 things:
A video I made was on the Hero Arts Blog!!!!!!!!! Have you seen it? I hope that you liked it, if you haven't go and check it out here! This is only my second video (both on for the HA blog!) And I loved making it! As I mentioned in the video I was thinking about one part of this month's challenge theme at Hero Arts and thought about how hard it can be to make masculine cards. That sometimes it can be daunting and you just don't want to do it! I wanted to make it easier and more fun so I thought hmmmm I should check out a Home Improvement store! It's not like I can go into the garage and look my hubby isn't really a handy man! Plus the garage is dirty! So I headed the home store and slowly walked around. By the way make sure you keep your eyes open for what is ahead of you, I almost walked into a large pipe that was in a cart! And I was asked by a whole lotta associates at the home store if I needed help. I shouldn't have told them why I was there, they did not get it! Hmmm I should bring my cards there when I go for more supplies, maybe than they would get it! Here are the cards I made for the video:
It doesn't get more manly than washers and sandpaper!!!
And late last night while slaving away (just kidding) on the Easter Treats I made for Ariel's class (will post pics later :>) I took a break and went down the computer and saw that my friend and fellow Wee Memories DT member Laurel sent an email congratulating me that I was Cup of the Week at PlayDate Cafe for my card set that I made for my friend as a baby gift! WHAT? I was beyond shocked! I don't win that often! Isn't it nice that I won for a gift that I made for a close friend, making her 19 cards to bless her and I am blessed to? After seeing that I won I ran upstairs and told my hubby and did the happy dance!! He looked at me like I was crazy! I wish I could have instead went to one of you my friends and did the happy dance, you would have understood! I reminded him that just minutes ago he was screaming over the Red Wings score!
By the way I wanted to share if you remember in my last post (Mother's Day card tall flower) I mentioned that Chad and I were going to watch Glee and than go to bed. So were lounging on the couch and loving Glee almost at the end and in the quiet of fast forwarding the commercials we hear Ariel's sleepy tiny voice call out "Are you watching a NEW glee?????" She never wakes up at night! But she must have heard the music knew it was glee realized that Mommy and Daddy are watching a new Glee without her! Of course we were going to watch it without her we have to prescreen it to know what is acceptable to watch! :>
Wow Wednesday was a crazy but awesome day for me! I am so thankful for everything! And I want to thank one of you for being my friend, for reading my blog for leaving me kind comments! So I am going to borrow from my dear friend Virginia's idea and draw from THIS POST a winner to receive a card from me plus some goodies! I will keep it a surprise as I LOVE SURPRISES! And you can stalk your mail man as you wait! I will draw for this on Tuesday April 19th 2011!!!
