And finally, from me.
As you can see, each card is as lovely and unique as the lady that created it. I had a LOT of fun hosting my first swap & I've already got plans for the next one!
Thanks for looking & have a great rest of your day!

Till the Fall Splendor Blog Party! I thought I'd give ya one more peek at some samples that the artists have been working on for you throughout September.
On Wednesday, I'll provide you with a link to the "train" so you can get your ticket & start partaking of the digital yummies. PLEASE don't panic if some of the artists don't have their parts available right ON the 1st ~~ with everyone in different time zones around the world, that's practically impossible to coordinate to any degree of success ~~ I've been told that this will be open for downloads the entire month of October.
See you soon!

I spent 4 hours sitting in this chair this afternoon & I totally blame a Craft Critique that I was reading in my daily downloads about PSE and the benefits of brushes/actions in your photography. I used one of the links that the gal provided & found myself right back in Oklahoma living rural life through the eyes and wicked sense of humor that belongs to a lady still living it! If I'm lyin, I'm dyin ~~ FOUR HOURS of alternating between sneezing my friggin head off & laughing my arse off (tho you can't tell by LOOKING at it!).
Take some time for yourself...close your office door, close the bedroom door, put some duct tape across the entrance to your cubicle like Less Nessman used to do on "WKRP in Cincinnati" (remember that?), tape off a "no tattling zone" around your LayZBoy...I don't care HOW you do it, just DO IT. Then get something to drink & log onto www.thepioneerwoman.com for a spell. Look through her pictures, read her blog posts or "confessions" (which are a RIOT), shuffle through the cooking with Pastor Ryan and her other recipes.
After THAT, you MUST read her story that she started in honor of her wedding anniversary to the Marlboro Man, called "Black Heels,"
(http://thepioneerwoman.com/2007/09/black_heels_to_tractor_wheels_a_love_storythe_complete_saga_to_date.html). It's so TOTALLY worth your time & if you're like me, you'll be begging her for the next installment.
Now, for me, it's off to a hot soak & beddie bye. I've GOT to get some rest so I can get these pix posted. On Saturday, I'll give ya another taste of the "Fall Splendor Blog Party," so be sure to come back!
Have a great rest of your day!!

Aren't they GORGEOUS?!? I can't wait to see what the other artists have pulled together for this event. If these are anything to go by, we should have some really stunning pieces in our collection to play with for October. And they're all FREE! When you have artists that are this talented willing to give you their hard work, you know that you have to consider yourself blessed!
I also wanted to share that I'm going to be selling a lot of the goodies that I've been showing off here since July between this Friday (19th) and October 2nd. You can find them at Aimee Asher's Online Craft Fair. Just go to www.aimeeasher.com and go into "Forums." You'll need to register as a member (it's free), but once you do, you can go to "Groups" find the "Crafting" link & be directed to the Fair. There will be some talented ladies there - I've seen Christmas decorations and some really pretty jewelry already, so there should be plenty to choose from. AND...it's a terrific way to make some new friends, find some old ones that you might have lost touch with, while doing your Christmas shopping for some lovely handmade goodies!
Thanks for letting me share with you today...I'm gonna go pass out now! (LOL)

Anyway, when I come back on Monday, I've got some cards from a sympathy card swap I entered to show off. Remember the one that I made and showed here a couple of weeks ago? I'll share those with ya, first thing! I'm amazed at all of the talent that I'm fortunate enough to be exposed to on a daily basis!
Thanks Jenn for the kind words over on your "blog highlight" (http://justjenndesignz.blogspot.com) ~ very cool! Love ya, GF!
Just 2 more weeks till the blog party of the year...can ya feel the excitement? It's electric & it's coming this way! I may try to get some "sneak peeks" for ya, if you promise to stop by often...
Have a great weekend!

September 9th ~ I'm 39. Would like to say "where has the time gone?" but I know EXACTLY where it went. I'm gonna try to do some crafting today. DH has a business meeting after work, so probably won't see him till close to bed time. It'll just be me & the boys.

Not much crafting accomplished this past week, but I'm hoping to rectify that in the next 24-48 hours. With my birthday coming up very soon, I've decided that I'm treating myself to some things from Design Queenie's (www.designqueenie.com) site and I'm stopping by DAISIE Co (www.daisiecompany.com) to take advantage of her site-wide 30% off clearance sale. Gina Jane has decided to close her doors & by the end of this month, everything except her work will be gone from the site, so if you love clip art or want some cute digital printables and scrapbooking kits, this would be the time to get them. She carries work by the late Sandi Gore Evans, if anyone is familiar with her work, and frankly I'm not sure if we'll ever see her things again. Haven't heard if her estate will license anyone else to sell for them.
Well, I'm off to shop & see what kind of trouble I can get into (I'm sure there'll be PLENTY for me to find!). Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!
