Party Like a RockStar!


Its 1:27 am. I am still awake. All because I just had to Party Like a Rockstar. 80 mg of caffeine per serving. Guess how many servings are in a 16 oz can? TWO. Supposedly one of the ingredients in the drink, Guarana Seed Extract, has 3X's more caffeine than coffee beans. I would ask "how many coffee beans." I may be awake all night. I've been awake since Sunday pretty much. All because of this...


Flew the friendly skies recently. Very stressful. Obviously I survived or else I wouldn't be typing, or awake right now.

I finished this from the Jenni-Jenni bebe shoot on Sunday:







Some pictures are blurry, but I'm too tired to care. Oh, and don't you just love my toe, tee hee hee! The second to the last picture is actually the last page. It has this excerpt from Mary Poppins Comes Back, the second in the Mary Poppins series by P.L. Travers.

I am earth and air and fire and water,
I come from the Dark
where all things have their beginning.

I come from the sea and its tides,
I come from the sky and its stars;
I come from the sun and its brightness –

And I come from the forests of earth.

Slowly I moved at first, always sleeping and dreaming.
I remembered all I had been, and I thought of all I shall be.
And when I had dreamed my dream,
I awoke and came swiftly.

I heard the stars singing as I came and
I felt warm wings about me.
I passed the beasts of the jungle and
came through the dark, deep waters.
It was a long journey.

My sis wanted to paint this on a nursery wall, but alas, she hasn't had any kids. It works on cards and photo albums and such doncha think? Annabel tells this story of her birth to a starling that alights on the window sill of the Banks children's nursery. Didya know that there were 5 Banks children, not just Jane and Michael?

Anywhoo, check out my sidebar on the right for my new blog where I'm posting my card a day, or reasonable facsimile. I guess I've got to get back to creating!

P.S. MadRetz, I used the stamp already!!!

Happy Friday!!!

So, my friend Jenni-Jenni may kill me for posting these on my blog, but I couldn't resist. I think these photos turned out fabulously. Jenni and her hubby Mike are totally photogenic subjects and I have to say, I think I'm getting good at this portrait stuff. They were so sweet and flexible to all my demands, "turn your head like this!" "stand here!" "contort your body like this!"

The love projects, doncha think?!

Crafty Women!

I took a mini book class called "Why I Scrapbook" this weekend with one of my favorite scrap artists, Kristi Contes. She's so creative and she doesn't measure!!! Gotta love her free spirit, artistic and otherwise.

Aren't we just too cute! Well, she's way cuter than me, but... hee!!!


Outside view of the mini book. We used legal sized string closure envelopes, acetate, rocked the Heidi Swapp stickers, decorative papers, overlays, photos, staples, stamps, a jump ring, and rub-ons.


Here are some of the internal pages. The words are supposed to describe why I scrapbook. I loved how I didn't have to make everything perfect and I also really liked that we used random bits to embellish the pages. Tres cool!!! It was worth the hour long drive to get to the scrapbook store!

You win a prize if you can tell me what movie I plagiarized in the title : .)
