'Tis the season...

I've been waiting since November to put up this huge banner, but wanted to wait until Christmas was tad closer. I knew I'd want one and wouldn't have time to make one later. lol That time is at hand. From now until a little after New Years I will be a scrambled egg, if not traveling, and most likely no cards will get, what I wanted to say was:

No matter what you celebrate or where you are, I wanted to wish the very best to you and yours! May 2007 offer you love, peace, safety, health and more time to do what makes your soul content.

I'd also thank all who visit here and those bloggers that I visit daily to oogle their work. You all have inspired me one way or another!

Thanks to Eva Kipler, whose elements I used in my banner. I'm not sure where I found them on the web, but they are awesome!

While surfing blogs last week, I came upon one offering free UHU glue in exchange for a product review and link back to her site.
Just 5 days later the samples arrived! There was a glue stick AND a bottle of glue that could be twisted to apply like a glue stick rather than a squeeze bottle - neat idea. I have given both a try and I prefer the glue stick, at this point. As any liquid glue, the bottled kind tended to warp lighter paper, but seemed to hold objects fairly well! The glue stick, when applied generously, bonded great! I could see myself using this often.
So, visit the website and see if you can't give these products a try yourself!

I simply love the beauty of this woman so I d/l a pic from the net to use. Yet another one stamp card.

After seeing the Memoirs of a Geisha stamp, I had to go looking for her face. While looking at the stills from the movie, I fell in love with this image. Had to have it, had to use it. It's still only a one stamp card, but...

This is stamped on acetate. Blue & green was my day went perfect with my mood.

There is not even one stamped thing on this card. I loved the sentiment though so there ya go. lol Happy Anniversary!

The colors of purple are off here because I was trying to catch some of the sparkle of the flake, but you get the idea. Simple is me these days.

Let there be music!

I grew tired of having the auto music play so now you can choose the music you want from my list of softer faves. If you've never heard Ottmar Leibert, I suggest giving him a listen in the Christmas section.

Thanks to DH for making the "jukebox" I wanted :)

I've been tagged!

I was tagged by Kim to list 6 weird things about myself and then tag 6 others. Since I am new to the blog scene, I don't know many of you so I'm just tagging those who's site I visit often (barring one.) You don't have to accept the challenge. That's all I need; to be black-blogged for tagging people. LOL

Ok, so...6 things about me:

1 - Socks. I absolutely love socks, but I can't have the stitching touching anywhere but the toe knuckles. Also, if I get a wrinkle in my sock I have to stop walking immediately and fix it, no matter where I am or what I'm doing. My husband says it's like the princess and the pea kind of thing. The specifically designed gold toe ring, that I've had on for over 16 yrs, doesn't bother me at all...go figure.

2 - I have the temper of a truck driver when I drive. No one can do anything right if they are in front of me. Well, even those behind annoy me! As soon I as start the car, it's as if I'm in a hurry, no matter where I'm going, that everyone needs to get out of my way. It's just this feeling that comes over me even if I'm only going a mile away and there is no urgency what-so-ever.

3 - I adore walking through old cemetaries and reading the headstones. I especially like headstones with photos of the deceased. I can walk on any grave, except those ones. It's like I know them then and can't step on them.

4 - I am obsessed with reading a blog that is owned by a gay man with a big heart. It's quite graphic, but the way he tells stories is so funny that I find myself reading for hours. (and I'm not a reader!)

5 - I have a fear of, and get sick to my stomach, going over bridges with water under them. Nearly all of my nightmares, I drown in a car that has gone over a bridge.

6 - I sing so badly my children have asked me to please not sing. In fact, when my youngest was a small infant and I began to sing while rocking him, he'd reach up and cover my mouth.

**Oh, and I would like to add to Kim's list too. She eats popcorn with a spoon! hehehe

Ok, so now I have to tag others:
Nancy | Gillian | vbridges | Taylor | Janine | Mrs. Osgood
