About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Normal.....whats that????

Nothing is normal at my house.... with me in charge....bwhahahahahahaha!

Ok, we got the thumbs up to show you some things the "Sugars" from Modern Sugar Blvd. have been working on. This image currently isn't available for purchase yet, but keep your eyes peeled 'cause it will debut soon, as with many, many more designs, woohoo!!! I did very little coloring of the washer and dryer, but the 'kicker' is the shaker part. I wanted my machines to come alive, almost makes me wish my washer and dryer was really this 'blingy'. Then maybe I wouldn't mind having to do laundry as much...bwahahahahahahaha. It turned out suh-weet, I think!
Deets: Just as I said above, I made a shaker using acetate, dimensionals, glitter and tiny glass beads. If you are not sure how to do it, check out SCS here for the details....very simple, but WOW!!! Found some dsp that I thought had the WOW appeal to it, layered it. The bubble holes were made with a 'Bubble Maker' punch from Creative Memories. The sentiment was printed from the computer. No, I didn't come up with that one on my own....I have a wooden sign hanging in my laundry room that has that saying painted on it.
Until later,bubbles......Gotta split....TFL

OMG I almost wee'd myself from laughing so hard! that is my house. My DH and I wrote out the things that we will do and not do when we got married and it went something like this:

1. I cook, DH does the dishes
2. I pee sitting down, DH cleans the bathroom
3. All money found in pockets laundry day belong to the finder (I started putting dollar bills in my pockets so the kids will do the laundry) LOL

I love this card!!
