Send Your Wishes Out Into The Universe...

I apologize for the funky spacing and formatting.
Blogger is NOT cooperating!

Yesterday was a red-letter day in the creative
portion of my Linda-verse!  
I have been incredibly validated 
& am overwhelmed and 
excited for new challenges and possiblilties!!!
Not only will I be working once again with the 
Scrapping the Music 
with Michelle LaPoint Rydell 
returning to lead the team, but...
I was also chosen to be on the 
Design Team
for one of my favorite 
stamp/scrap/craft supply companies,  
Frantic Stamper!!!
(Breathing...ok, more like hyperventillating, you get me, right?!  LOL!!!)

Please go read the sweetest DT announcement and 
check out the some of the work of the other new DT members 
at the Frantic Stamper blog!

I'm thinking the clincher was my "essay" : .)
that was to be included with our application for a position.
In case you're interested in reading it, 

I "wrote" it to be sung to the tune of Rihanna’s,  
We Found Love

Glimmer misting in the light,
Glue and paper side by side,
Add some stamping, draw a line,

Tools I use to bring art alive…

It's the way I create, I just can't deny,
And I wanna let it show…

I found joy in a creative space,

I found joy in a creative space,

I found joy in a creative space,

I found joy in a creative space.

I see a challenge outside the box,

Love to post things on my blog,

Frantic DT I need you more,

Every heartbeat tells me so…

It's the way I create, I just can't deny,
And I wanna let it show…

I found joy in a creative space,

I found joy in a creative space,

I found joy in a creative space,

I found joy in a creative space…

and there you go!

Kidnap the Sandy Claws!

Another thing I wanted to buy in a post-Xmas sale last year was a black tinsel Xmas tree from Target.

I was bummed that they were already all gone when I began my search!

I was so excited when Karen scored one and had given it to me!!!

I know, "No Xmas decorating until after Tksgvg", 
but I figure my nightmare theme can span all the fall and winter holidays.  
Plus, I couldn't wait...  : .)

The Jack Skellington heads are those plastic key covers, 
which I bought at the Disney Store, 
along with the little figurines of 
Jack & Zero
Oogie Boogie
Lock, Shock & Barrel
and the Mayor.
Donna got me the Jack skull & crossbones at Disneyland when she recently took her kids, 
a perfect tree topper!
I found a mini Sandy Claws hat in my stash & my tree is complete!

World War I Flying Ace...

 I'm working on a scarf for a co-worker who rides his scooter to work every day.
Its been cold in the am & he's been wearing a t-shirt around his neck for protection.

Oh, and watching hockey!

I was inspired by this...

Awhile back there was a Maserati in the parking lot @ work with vanity plates that said, "LNDA L". 
(my middle name starts with an "L".)
 Then, JC said I had a Mazdarati, and so I do...

 (btw - this is #5)

Go Pens! I Mean SHARKS!!!

Hard to decide which team to cheer for,
especially when the visitors score two goals in the first two minutes of the game.  
Yes, they did.  
Sidney is still on injured reserve.  

A lot to spend on an evening and not see one of my favorite hockey super stars!!!
(I think I'll be an armchair, make that couch fan from now on!)

In the end, the Sharks prevailed, 
but they looked like rookies against this Stanley Cup winning team!!!  

Live hockey is always good!
