Frida............. Posted by Picasa

Our adventure last weekend took us to Columbia, MO. for the SHOW ME STATE games where my son played soccer and won first place. Is that medal big enough or what...... Posted by Picasa

Big fish hugh????? Posted by Picasa


Wow!!!!!!!!!! What a weekend I had. It was truly a nice one and I have my husband and kiddies to thank. Early Sat. morning we got up, dressed up, packed up and we headed for an early morning of fishing. I have not been fishing in who know how many years. My husband and kiddies have taken up fishing as a hobby. I decided that this Sat. I would join them.

Well, we got to our destination over there on 40 and 94 at Bushes wildlife. They have tons of little lakes, but we were looking for lake #12 which is for kiddies fishing only. I really never imagined that I was going to have a blast. To make a long story short, my husband and I were the ones doing all the fishing. My kiddies lost interest I would say by the end of the first hour. They decided they wanted to catch grasshoppers instead. Here we take them fishing so that they can enjoy themselves and as usual they would rather be picking bugs.

Well, I kind of took over........ I learned how to put a hook in these cute little minow fishies. It took a couple of tries, blood did squirt out and my hands smelled very fishy, but I finally got it. Actually, now if I think about it, I was kind of killing these little fish. That really is mean, but I wanted to catch some fish and these cute little minows were the bate.

I caught maybe 3 or 4 fish and almost caught a turtle. They apparently love these little fish.

I did not really think I was going to have so much fun. I even brought a book and two magazines with me. Sincerely though, I had a wonderful time. We all had a wonderful time. It was time well spent and I hope my children remember yesterday when they are older. Just like the memories I have of my dad when he would take us fishing..............................

Here is an atc I made two days ago with these new butterfly stickers I purchased at RED LEAD. The picture is a picture I found at the flea market this past weekend. Posted by Picasa

Missed it

A little bird told me that last nights Talk Trade and Make night at Red Lead was great and I believe it. Too bad I missed it. Hopefully, next week I will be able to escape and go make those little atcs that I enjoy making so much.

I THINK my creative Muse

found me tonight. I don't know what happened, but I sat down and made a few atcs that I truly LOVE. What is going on..... I need a big PINCH or punch........ Sometimes, I seriously wonder why the heck do I waste my time making stuff especailly those days when I have no ideas or desire to create. Well, tonight I don't know what happened I think she finally came to my house and knocked on my door and I let her in.

I will post them Manana........

I think she tired me out. It's time for some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite.....

I am a sucker for........

I am a sucker for good music and COLD PLAY simply ROCKS................

If you enjoy U2, John Meyer, Dave Matthews Band you would simply fall over for COLD PLAY. They are more on the softer side, BUT they are Awesome. I would truly recommend their new ALBUM especailly track number 2...............

My husband and I are totally opposite. I say Black and he says White............... I am kind of KOOKY he is as STRAIGHT as it get's. But, one thing we both LOVE is this band.

SO ROCK ON............
