by day

so lately by night i am a celine dion christmas album listening treat eating christmas crafter...and i feel real good about it...

most of these ideas i ripped from other blogs...and i found these cute print on tags to go w the clay ornaments me and teen whom i owe thanks from saving me from turning country while crafting alone

i may have gotten a little excited about my nephews coming and made a little festivity for there room...i loved the birds with the letters it made it more boyish

also when not crafting i have become obsessed with organizing ...and i think egg cartons for earrings is my new favorite....i love the texture they have...and they are free with only a dozen eggs
also i would like to post links to where i ripped ideas from and got the printable ornaments...but i can't be logged into google reader and my blog at the same plese dont sure me for not referencing...just teach me how to fix that problem instead? thanks

i couldn't pick a favorite rap b-day go ahead and pick yours

i thought these were very appropriate alomost bday pictures...apparently my brother and i had no shame of stealing other peoples bday wishes...and it got kinda cut off but his cheeks were definately puffed in the first one also
26...kinda freaking out...not quite ready for this one

my ages keep coming despite the fact i haven't quite caught up with where i think i should be with them
also these pictures made me realize my bday wish this year would be to please have my 5 year old nose back...please...

stick a cork in it

so i got a cork baord in jr high....and now instead of being covered in collages its covered in necklaces...cuz im kinda a jewelry freak and hate tangled jewelry
but then i got over it so i sprayed the cork with wall texture (orange peel)

and then i made some wood push in i sawed off branches in the trail behind my house and lori came home to a mad woman in sweats and crazy hair running around with a saw (if u know me well you know exactly what this looked like...)

then i superglued myself to myself...

luckily my sister and brother in law were on the phone and googled me loose...i had glued fingers together before and didn't really think it a believer now

and voila...end product... i think it makes the wall look so much cleaner...and i like that it looks like wall too
also sara updated this blog for me so i could do larger pictures unfortunately i am and 80 year old when it comes to computer skills and lost half the pics i wanted and can't move a thing around...sorry

the club can't even handle me right now

do you ever get anxiety and feel like you can't post anything for like half a month? ya me neither...but here's some of halloweens highlights:
face painting...the boys stuck with the same ones i posted earlier
spooky fog machine

and handing out candy to the trickers and treaters

dinner place settings

the boys made ghosts we hung all over the room ceilings...and a black and orange balloon mass but i forgot to photo it

lots of pumpkin patch visits...they are like mini fairs and i love them...and it makes me miss living in a small town

me and teen partied it up...or just got ready and took pics and made some drop ins to validate the get ups...and if you can guess what we are you are officially smarter than anyone in Huntington beach

and since michael is doing the candy deal (they get 100 dollars for one year of no candy) we had to find a new way of overloading on sugar and treats this year...all homemade sweet goodness...which means i think it's practically health food...i mean a homemade donut has to be healthier then store bought right??

whats spookier then homemade antelope jerky? not sure but it's pretty tasty
i wasn't the only one excited for the sweets

the high price of free babysitting?

just kidding we just take halloween seriously around here and i firmly believe holidays should be celebrated all month long
other things i learned while babysitting:
  • McDonalds is bad for you (say what??)
  • the force is real because you can use it to make your line in disneyland go faster then the one next to you
  • i'mgoing to be a really cool mom (albeit this was told during a trip to yogurtland on the way home from the dentist)
  • it's actually really cool that i get to live with grandma and grandpa and have access to all the best toys all the time (word)
  • a day can be the best day ever when you see a truck pull out of the gas station with the pump still attached in the car and drive off with it then come return it...simple pleasures

all the way to grandmothers house

i am obsessed with capes...cant stop ebay oogling them...if i dont find a good one this fall/winter my heart will break...but being as american apparel has one i am sure they will be everywhere...which is not enough to keep me from loving-wanting one...also i got scared to post this know the feeling you dont want to share until you get yours first? oh well tis the season?

good thing i already have that hat for this set.. but your not allowed to buy this one cuz i have my heart set on it friendships will end ...jk?

of course ms. moss does it best

ok not a cape just obsessed with her hair...

( a real long time) thank you phone app for making me an artistic genius...thank you mark for always providing me with "quiet books" during church

st. who?

all day long at work people tell me to do whatever i think with their makeup...
it's a lie...they know exactly how they want their makeup to look...
so teen being the teendream she is, let me take my stress out on her face (not quite as de-stressing as taking it out on a boys face...but much more productive...just joshing mom) she didn't even bat an eye when she saw me dipping black for lips, red and purple for eyes or mixing bronze shimmers with lotions and applying liberally to the whole face...or even question smudging her mascara under her eyes in utter wrecklessness..k maybe she questioned that one...

the funny thing is its such crummy lighting you cant really tell what the makeup looks like...but she's so pretty and her hair color is new and just putting pretty things out into the're welcome world
thanks for being such a good canvas teen
ps. i know how to do normal makeup also...just a disclaimer

is this a test?

to see if i can ever get enough olsons? cuz nope...sure i will take a younger almost as identical and equally well adorned olson...i'm not asking to be besties with them...just gimme five minutes to raid their closet anything i can carry style...or three in the jewelry section...
usually my girl crushes are around same age or older...but i dont mind being the cougar in this one ...its just a fling anyways...

paper or plastic

so for britts bridesmaids gifts she gave each "maid" a flower for her hair...i was in charge of packaging....
tags for the flowers...
say what you will about love for it is as strong as it was in 1994...and yes i still have the dryer thing for it

i thought it would be a cute picture to hang all these from my window beam to take a picture...which is probably true..about as true as the fact i have the worlds worst balance and then proceeded to fall knocking over my beloved grass (to em's literal delight...such an earth hater) getting dirt all over my carpet like in the adds they have where they are always throwing dirt and wine on everything...oh and managing to smack my head on my bed, knee on my dresser, and shoulder on a laundry basket...

so then i just took a picture of a pile of them. i had all the burlap and felt flowers from when darci and i had a burlap felt obsession....a pretty big obsession i might add
