Six Word Saturday 10/29

I'm listening to Christmas music already!

In my defense, I am getting supplies ready for a Christmas card making party that I am hosting next week.  I am trying to get my rear end moving on the prep work and thought a little music might help in the motivation department...

I have the stuff out but that is about all... Such is the life of a procrastinator!  :)

Hope you are all enjoying your last weekend of daylight savings!

Five Question Friday 10/28


This week’s questions:

1. Do you prefer cotton, silk, or flannel sheets?
Cotton!  I like the 200 to 300 thread count, they seem to stay cooler and less wrinkly.  I bought some Egyptian cotton 800 tc and hated them!
2. What time zone are you in?
3. What is your favorite part of the holiday season?
All the good food!  Generally everyone has a smile on their face, (I stay away from the malls) there is a feeling of anticipation in the air.   I think my favorite part of Christmas is sitting in the dark with just the lights blinking on the tree and feeling calm and peaceful.

4. What is your favorite "wintry" drink? (It doesn't have to be an "alcoholic" drink!)
I drink a hot Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha all year long! 
5. In your opinion, what is the worst job in the world?
President, King, Queen, etc.  Anything that puts you in charge of loads of people.  I have a hard enough time pleasing the people in my house, I can't imagine if I had to please everyone in the country that would be WAY too much pressure!

Papertrey Blog Hop 10/25

Phew, submitted this with only seconds to spare!

I will get a better picture up in a few, this was snapped with my iPhone in hurry, hurry, hurry mode!  My pics are ify and best and when I'm in a hurry even fuzzier!  lol

Here is a picture taken from my big camera and I don't know that it is much better...  Must be something wrong with "both" cameras cause it surely can't be the picture taker!  :)

All PTI except the leaf punch which is Marvy.

Six Word Saturday 10/22

Ready to not be sick anymore!

I am much better than on Thursday and Friday but enough already!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  I plan to make up my fun time next weekend!  :)

Five Question Friday 10/21


This week’s questions:

1. Where do you escape to when you've had enough?
I usually take a nap. 

2. What shows are you watching this fall?
House is the only thing I watch besides sports on regular TV.  I do watch Real Housewives on BRAVO but they are arguing to much anymore for it to be any fun so I am not really watching that too often.  Mostly I watch sports and the news.

3. What was the longest roadtrip you've ever taken and where did you go?
1978 we went from WA to OR and then to ID, MT and WY.  Yellowstone was a blast!  Two weeks long and lots of miles.
4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?
We went to Disneyland when my son was 8, we had a good time.  I would liek to go again with just adults though.  I think that would be a blast.  My son is an adult now so I guess I could do both, go with my son the adult!  :)
5. What is something people would surprised to know about you?
I am sentimental.

Happy Fall Wreaths

This was a fun project to work on. I will definitely be making more of these crinoline flowers for future projects!  I am out of wreaths now so until the Dollar Tree gets more in I won't be making any for awhile.  I did find cones there so...maybe I will make something with those!

Crinoline flowers inspired by The Funkie Junkie
