Gasp... a SATURDAY post!?

Yep, a post on Saturday, but I'm cheating cause I'm typing some of this up on Friday!
I wanted to show off this cutie's work!
Her name is Dena and her shop on etsy is:

I have 2 of her wire words in my home and can think of at least 2 people I've given these as gifts to.
I ❤ them!
and check out her cute pendants:
it says sing (not sin!!)

2 sided :)
Anyone have plans today?
I want to make this:
and I have to take care of this:
thanks to a playground situation...
(don't you love the paper the glasses are on?  Apparently she's in negotiations with daddy to build a "girls only" fort in the backyard)
and I have to finish up some picture taking ...
I've decided to start another little etsy store to sell paper products for scrapbooking.
My new store is called:
(paper cuts are cute)
here's a sneak peek:
I'll have all kinds of embellishments but I also am going to sell the goodies you need to make your OWN paper banners for parties or just for everyday!
to all my new followers!!!
You have NO idea how excited I am every time someone joins the party!!

Blah, blah, blah... is it Friday?

It's snowing....AGAIN!
hey snow, i hate you... go away!
i'm grumpy today, it's cold, it's snowing, it's dark & dreary... and i hate all my clothes.
Have you seen those blogs where those cute girls show all their cute outfits EVERYDAY?! Where do they get all their $, that's what I want to know.  I think those are called "Trust fund babies".  Just another thing to be grouchy about- my grandparents not getting into steel during a war...
Here's my donation to the fashion blogs:

stripe shirt- Old Navy 
monkey shirt- Yum Pop
skinny jeans (are they still in?)- Target
granny slippers- Target
wrinkle on my forehead-1969, thanks 41- i hate you too!
and speaking of things that are bugging me- this dog....
this dog that wants out every 10 min to go chase the 500 cats we have roaming our property!
ok, more like the 9-12 cats... but when you're grouchy i find it best to exaggerate EVERYTHING!
see how he's all covered in snow and ice... love how he smells like wet puppy when he comes in!  No, not really, I hate that too!
Ok, enough about that, lets talk about what I do love....
this girl of mine!!
(who googled: "pants on the ground" today!)
fake turkey patty things... i do, i love them!
but they tricked me by mentioning avocado, because THAT happens to be my favorite thing to eat EVER and even though there are some green specks, if my eyes were closed I'd never guess there were any in these, but tasty none the less....
this shirt from All Mighty... 
which i have, so i guess i don't hate EVERYTHING i have in my closet
these dolls made by The Black Apple
VERY hard to get...
i like the one with pink hair & the one with black hair!
crochet and sweet people who make patterns to SHARE!
pink shoes!
found on
artwork by Mark Ryden
anything by Jennifer Hayslip of
eye candy creations
Sitting next to a Bar-B-Q champ, drinking the "drink of the day" on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean...
knowing there is someone for everyone!!
Ok, I totally feel better now!
I have a cute artist to share with you tomorrow...
I just found her on etsy and have had a couple of her wire words in my home for years...
Hope you're all staying warm & safe!
Send some positive thoughts/prayers my cousins way (Naughty Nurse), she's headed to Haiti tomorrow to do some nurse stuff!  She's awesome and super pretty... geesh I hope no one sells her into prostitution!
Ok, have a great weekend!

I'm throwing my request into the universe...

 an etsy business that makes 6 figures... 
Oprah told me I could do this, throw my request into the universe, I've been asking for a Range Rover to the point of obnoxiousness...

 hey Oprah, why is this in my garage?

and Universe, as long as you aren't listening, can you do something about this puppy?
He just ate my new favorite lip balm-i hate him right now.
He's begging for my forgiveness, which i choose to withhold for now...
I should be asking the Universe for a new wardrobe and carpet- don't be jealous!
So anyway, I started a *NEW* and amazing etsy store... My narcissistic personality tells me it's amazing and I'm listening to that gal!
it's called:
(paper cuts are cute)
and here's a sneak peek:

embellished die-cuts for
scrapbooking and card making

I'm working on packaging today...

this last picture is for cheekygreen
i'm doin' the work lady!!  all this goes to my church into our paper-gator!
Well, we'll see if anyone is interested, if not...
anyone need a seahorse?
My goal is to have this biz up and RUNNING no later than Monday!
I'm off to dress in an inappropriate outfit and head down to my studio :)
Have a great day!

What NOT to wear....or maybe?!

Hannah... Hannah... Hannah...
Thank you Hannah Storm for wearing this just in time for today's post!  Hannah, I feel your pain- i love me some red go-go boots too and plaid skirts... yes, please! But Hannah... we aren't 23 anymore and as much as that breaks my sparkly pink hello-kitty heart, the naughty Catholic school girl looks is NOT rocked by us 40 year olds!
as Tony Kornheiser says:
"She's got on red go-go boots and a Catholic-school plaid skirt... way too short for somebody in her 40's or maybe early 50s by now... She looks like she has sasage casing wrapping around her upper body... Come on now! Stop! What are you doing?"

good-bye sparkle leggings

yikes, I have leggins on in this picture... should i send them to goodwill?
Can I wear them under this jean jumper thingy or should that go too?
and who thinks she's Jackie O with her GIANT owl sunglasses?!
good-bye sparkle sequin shorts

Rebel Ballerina tank- go find a 15 year old...

Wassap B? tee... I still heart you!
Paul and Frank... i heart you and so does my 6 year old- 
does that make me wrong?

really, in my opinion- no one should be wearing these...
did someone poop their pants?

ruffle skirt- nope, sorry, find a 20 year old
I use to work with a gal that was 42/43 at the time and I believe she owned the above jean skirt...
it wasn't pretty then and I'd put $10 on the fact it's still in her closet (along with the way too high wicker sandles with ankle straps that dug into her cankles... sorry honey, you know it's true!)
cute skirt! Love the white trim, but the length...
just say NO!

Romper romper... how I remember you from the 70's!
My mom had a green terry cloth one with an applique frog- SEXY!
I think these are cute, I kinda want one, but... i know I shouldn't!
Who wants Stacey and Clinton showing up at their door?!  Only for the $5,000 shopping spree, the public humiliation i can do without!
1 shoulder glitter top... again not for us "older gals"
Yes, I would still wear this one though...
this top, these pants?!  A 41 year old can wear, right?
i ❤ these boots... i do!  I would wear them with a black rain coat, i would...

This last look... oh how i LOVE this... but... the socks?
can i? should i? could i?
what if the skirt was a bit longer??
What does you gals think is a NO GO once you are over 40?!
I'm the size of an 11 year old... although I can't believe how big 11 year olds are now, maybe a 9 year old?!  Sometimes this confuses me, I think I can wear stuff because I look like a kid from behind...sorry, but my face give me away, dang it!
don't worry, I'm not wearing low rise jeans with a tube top (ok so i have one, but it stays in my drawer- don't make me break it out!) and a thong sticking out... but I like "CUTE" stuff and am thinking those days are growing shorter and shorter...
ok, I've got to get out of my Hello Kitty PJ's and go put on my Hello Kitty t-shirt! :)
If you see Clinton and Stacey, tell them I said HI!
