Aren't You Jealous?

Well, if not now, you will be after I tell you this... After a leisurely breakfast of coffee and 2 Pecan Sandies cookies (be proud, Mom!), my darling husband told me to take a shower. Just what every girl wants to hear- "Is someone visiting from the garbage dump, my dear, or is that you?"

(FYI, I really didn't want to. No, I don't have anything against being clean, but I do have something against wasting perfectly good Saturday krafting time to stand under running water for a man who professed to love me for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, squeaky cleanliness or babe with body odor.)

But, I did it anyhow. Unconditional love, you know. Okay, I'll admit, I knew he was up to something.

He was.

He brought us to a nearby park and produced a blanket and a lunch bag, which he proceeded to unload. Sandwiches (he remembered the light mayo for me! and extra tomato!), 100 calorie packs of Ritz toasted chips, nectarines, 2 diet Cokes, and you guessed it people, more of those delicious Pecan Sandies! A-ha! That's what he was doing while I was in the shower, scrubbing away. We ate under the shade of a large tree while we watched children playing in the park and boats passing by. I thought it couldn't get any better until he brought out the "piƩce de resistance-"

Chocolate Covered Strawberries!

Yes, he made them himself, and yes, he fed them to me.

Jealous now?

I thought so.


My Husband Lets Me Buy All the Scrapbook Supplies I Can Hide From Him

Am I right, ladies? =)

Are you like me? Do you like to buy scrapbook supplies and dream about the possibilities, but never get to the nitty-gritty of actally crafting stuff? Seems like I spend most of my free time at Hobby Lobby or Michael's, instead of actually "kreating. "

I have more paper than I know what to do with, a Cricut I hardly ever use (and I won't tell you how much whining I actually had to do to get this), so much ribbon it's shameful, stickers, rub-ons, and stamps galore! (Don't get me started on embellishments and tools.) Seriously, it's a good thing we don't have much more going on in the basement or I would be running out of room. (Although if you saw my laundry piling up, you might not agree with me...)

Here's what I picked up in my recent "casual jaunt" to Hobby Lobby and Michael's-
And don't go thinking I have a plan for all this!

And as for the title of this post, well... though I'm certainly not advocating that you should lie to your mate... let's go the way of our exemplary U.S. Military and "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."


Let's Get This Par-tay Started!

Yeah, my first post!!!! Aren't you excited? Somewhat excited? Ok, just the teeny-weeniest bit excited? (Did I just say "weeniest" in my first post? Sheesh!)

Anyways, here I am in the world of blogging. (As if I needed another reason to hang out at the computer- sorry honey!)

I'm sure that as time goes by, my posts will get wittier and funnier and I will make you hang on every word and keep you coming back for more glimpses into my deranged and comical mind- but for now, will you settle for some run-of-the-mill introductions?

Here's me and Greg (the handsome husband):
Here's some of the cool things I like to "Kreate:"

My Cootie Catchers are great for weddings/showers/birthdays-

I love making greeting cards:

And of course, plenty of miscellaneous "Krafts," too, like embellishments and tags:

Oh yeah, I am a calligrapher, as well!

Hmmm.. nothing like tooting your own horn so much when you first meet, gotta love a good first impression!

Well, now you know all about 2 of my 3 biggest passions in life, 2.) my hubby and 3.)crafting. But, the first of these, numero uno, is my relationship with Jesus Christ (whom I don't have a recent picture of, haha- stand back and wait for the lightning to strike!)

Love to all and leave me comments!
