Hi I have been tagged~~

I hope everyone is have a great day...
I have been tagged by my good friend Eileen at . I am supposed to list 7 facts about myself you all probably dont know. So here goes, dont be shocked. LOL
1)I love hard rock, ie led zeplin, the who, the stones, etc 2)I hate cheesecake, I think I am the only person in the world who does. 3)I am not proud of this, but the truth be told I can have a potty mouth especially while driving. It always shocks people. lol 4)In high school I had a bright red Javlin AMX muscle car with a 401 engine. It was jacked up in the back with spoilers and wide tires, it was really fast. You have heard of a chick magnet, well this was a guy magnet. 5) Maybe not so weird, but I LOVE NYC. 6)I am a Star Trek - Next Generation fan! 7) I worked at a wildlife park for a summer and worked with the small cubs, bobcats, african caracals, even the 20 foot snake that weighed 200 pounds. (in case you are wondering it takes 6 people to carry one. lol).
So I hope I havent tarnished my image. So now I get to tag 7 people. If you want to play you link the tagger and add your sevens links too. Have fun. I am tagging..... . , , , , ,

Show and Tell Monday ~~Aloha

Hi,,, well, I have been very busy this last week. Besides my job, I had a petsitting job all week that I had to stay overnight. My boss has had jury duty and is on a long trial, I am her personal assistant and this week I have had to do a whole lot of assisting. LOL. She had been planning this Luau-pig roast for some time now. So I helped take care of some details and need to drive into Phoenix everyday after court to pick her up and bring her home. I am still packing, cleaning and sorting also. The point of all of this "do ya feel sorry for me yet?" LOL I didnt make one single thing this week. So ya all get to see family photos from the Luau. I hope I dont bore you silly. Thanks for stopping by.

The first picture is my oldest daughter Valerie and my son in law Adam, and the handsome little guy is Jace my grandson. The second picture is my youngest daughter April and her boyfriend, a pretty great guy, and the little dude is Mikey my other grandson. The third picture is Jeff. He isnt too happy about having his picture taken, but hey he is kinda cute. And the last photo is my boss and dear friend Kay and the luau pig. All of the guests sitting at my table decided he need a name, so this is Alphie. I couldnt bear to eat him though. I mostly like fruits and vegtables. I will tell you one thing, it was 108 and I felt as cooked as poor Alphie.

I hope you all have a great day. I cannot wait to get my new studio up and running. I have some great new plans and cant wait to share them. I will be stopping by my friends of Make Mine PInks blogs today and I am looking forward to seeing whats new. Until next time.

Show and Tell Monday and Christmas!

I am happy to be able to post for show and tell. I had considered passing this week. I have been packing and I have ALOT of great stuff to pack! lol Also this week my boss, Kay, had jury duty and has been assigned to a criminal trial that will be at least 2 weeks. Being her personal assistant has a whole new meaning now. She is really going to need my help. To make matters harder for both of us, she is having a pig roast luau this coming saturday at her home for over 100 people. Plus I have quite a few pet sitting assignments over the next two weeks also. The house I am in now closes next monday, so I have lots to do. But I am going to do what I can to participate in any of the Make Mine Pink promotions. I love doing them and wouldnt miss it for the world.

So, I have done a few heart shaped ornaments that will be on my website for the Christmas in July event. I thought these earrings were just fun. Dont tell anyone I have snagged the keys to Santas Sleigh! And last but not least, evidence that I am not being slack on productivity, and this stack of boxes is the tip of the iceberg!

I cant wait to visit all of the Make Mine Pink sights today for the beginning of Christmas in July. Make sure to participate in the contest, there are great prizes, including a $200.00 Make Mine Pink gift card! Unitl next time..........

Show and Tell Monday....

Hi,, what a busy week end this has been. I am moving at the end of the month and I have way tooooo much stuff. Its all great stuff, but to much. I am making progress slowly but surely, but it does keep my from doing what I prefer, and thats being creative. The cats arent too happy either. I have packed and unpacked cats probably 100 times. I should just leave them packed. LOL

Well the first thing I have are pictures a very good friend gave me when she moved and didnt want them anymore. She didnt want to put them in her garage sale and give them away for next to nothing, she was glad I liked them. My understanding these are watercolors done in Paris in either the late 50's or early 60's. I didnt get the frames so you could see the beautiful art, but they are an antiqued turquoise/blue color and look gorgeous with the paintings. I truly cherish these and I am so glad she gave these to me. Next are two pairs of earrings I put together today. I really like the amethyst and mother of pearl ones. I listed them on my site, but I might keep them if they dont sell. Also I did this fun necklace.

I cant wait to see what you all are doing this week. I will be visiting you all through out the day. Have a magical day and happy creating.....until next time

Hi, Show and Tell Monday

HI, I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I had a 3 day weekend myself and boy it flew by so fast. I am moving at the end of the month so I have started packing and sorting and throwing out. I started in the room I use least. The kitchen. For real, I hardly ever use the kitchen, I should though, I found out I have some really cute dishes. LOL I am not quite decided where I will move and its a little stressful packing up and not knowing where to take your stuff. LOL I have a couple places lined up and the right thing will turn up, its all good. I went to Target and bought this really soft body pillow. I thought it would be comfy. Well apparently so did Miss Annie Friend, she wont get off of it. She loves it. She is so shy and quiet and never asserts herself so I just cant bear to kick her off of it! I also went out to an antique mall on Sunday with my Sister and Friend. I bought a bag of assorted old jewelry and cant wait to use some of that. I found a couple other things I am going to use for projects that I will post later. I did buy these to hats. I love old hats. I used to collect them but lost them all in a fire, so I decided to start picking them up again here and there. I love these two. I wonder who owned them? I also tried my hand at FIMO clay. I have been wanting to make cupcake and icecream cone beads. These were alot of fun, but when I set them on a tray to dry overnight, one of the cats thought they looked like alot of fun to roll around the floor. I found them everywhere, but they had fuzz and stuff in them. I decided to bake them and paint them anyway, so I cant really use them, but I will practice and make them again for some projects. LOL . So I decided to make these earrings so that would have a completed project.

So I had a full weekend but it was fun and productive. I cant wait to see what all of you have come up with this week... until next time........
