Last Train to Gluesville

Hey y'all!

Wow, Friday already, can ya believe it? Actually I can't since I've been thinking it was Thursday all week. lol Anyhoo, exciting announcement today as Gauche Alchemy is sponsoring the new challenge over at These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

TAAFOMFT is an awesome challenge blog where they pick a new "favorite thing" for every prompt. The prompt we're sponsoring is "Favorite Band" and boy was I excited to create something for this one. Or maybe I never mentioned my obsession with The Monkees?! lol To see what our DT made, check it out on the Gauche Alchemy blog AND you can actually see our DT PLUS the Favorite Things DT creations by heading on over to the These are a Few of My Favorite Things blog. We're giving away our last ACME kit so I do hope you'll play along! :)

Here's what I made:

I found this canvas picture on clearance for $1 so I covered that with Gesso, then I used a piece of Sassafras paper from the ACME kit…

A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You

Hi everyone!

Let's see...we're at Tuesday, right? :D So how's your week going so far? I'm running all over the place, internet-ally speaking (lol) but wanted to drop in and give you a look at what I (and Toot!) have been doing. First, Toot loves watching Blue's Clues with Pete...

Too bad this show is long gone, she loves it!

Next, here's a little hat I crocheted for my Dal (it's suppose to look like Mickey Mouse ears :D):

"Take me to Disneyland...STAT!"

Let's check in on Toot...Ah yes, here she is enjoying her new pool:

She really is a little mermaid...L-O-V-E-S the water!

And last but not least, here are my ATCs for the "My Favorite and My Best" ATC swap group. This month we did our favorite color and surprise surprise as to which color I picked! lol

I used Barbie magnets, Nikki Sivils "Breadless Tags", my handy dandy Dymo label maker, bits from Gauche Alchemy's Pink Parts Mixed Media Color Kit and stamped ink through p…

Friday Night Fab Five: All Over the Place

Hi everyone!

Welcome to this week's Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things I'm into this week. This week there's a little bit of this and that so let's get started, shall we?

1. Dollhouse

(Picture from Fox)

Thanks to Netflix streaming, I've been able to discover yet another show that's already been canceled and I have no hope of closure. Ah well, it's cool...Dollhouse was great while it lasted (the first season anyway) plus I got to see a lot of my Firefly/Battlestar Galactica friends in various episodes so I'm happy. :)

2. This Shirt from Spot of Tea

Um, hello...how can you not like anything that specifically tells you to add glitter to something? Way to go Spot of Tea!

3. Toy Story 3 for the Xbox 360

Toy Story 3 the movie was great and Toy Story 3 the video game for the Xbox 360 is awesome! That being said, there were some frustrating parts that had me scaring off sailors with my potty mouth but what…

There's No Place Like Home...

Hey y'all!

Well, we're back from our New York vacation and although it was loads of fun, there's no place like home, yes? :D I've got some projects in the works but thought I'd take some time and make you sit through some "vacation slides" as it were. >:) lol

Toot very obviously enjoyed the bus ride into Manhattan:



Don't worry, she woke up:



At a friend's cook out, Toot gets a face full of water:



We got to go to the New York Botanical Garden this time around and it was wonderful!



I got to have true ramen in the Village...oh I could have buried my face in the bowl it was THAT GOOD:



We also had dim sum in Chinatown where Chris tried duck feet (actually Toot ate duck feet and duck tongue):



For those of you that are interested, all of our NY videos can be found on my You Tube Channel and all of our pictures can be found in my Flickr account.

We had a lot of fun and ate some amazing food this time around! But it's back to business I suppose to this w…
