back to some fun stuff~

okay now that that business of misinterpretations is cleared..i would love to share with you some of my latest creations! On to the Happy stuff!

Here are a couple of pictures i took of the projects I created for's Creative Impulse is posted on their site in the gallery of projects and if you go to the shop and find the paper dolls they are both there with directions on how to create your own
My first project is the movie star mobileand a boudoire~here are a few projects i created for the Creative Therapy blog
this catalyst was "what do you like best about yourself" My answer was my reflects who i am inside..happy and full of sunshine..loland something i remembered from my childhoodand the last catalyst was "someone you miss" I created amini shadow box with a photo of my grandmother. She taught me many crafts and a lot about sewing~ My little sewing fairy~and the other thing i have been playing with is my Blythe dolls..and have been making lots of clothes for mine and for trades with other Blythe mommy's! Phew I forgot how much work it is to sew but boy it has been fun~
I had a near disaster..Oscar almost killed my sewing machine. He got tangled up in the cord and pulled it off the split open at the seams...however..i was able to rescue it and snap it back together...PHEW!
Petra is modeling this turtle dress, it is for a trade

this is another trade...i love this one..will be hard to part with, Anni looks so pretty in it!
another trade...but i made a pink one for me to keep in the same style. It was made with a vintage skipper pattern, My angel Kaelaray looks pretty in this one...
Madison loves this one..we are keeping it for her

made 3 of this to keep 2 to sell...i love this kitty fabric, Ember's hair matches the cat color in it..LOL!

well enough for now..i am sure i can dig up tons more i have made....but will save it for later!
have a wonderful day...and i promise i will behave and leave the neighbors alone....although salt and vinegar crop circles in their lawn, sounds kind of fun...ha ha...totally kidding~

it was brought to my attention

That readers of my blog that don't know me, may take the previous post in the wrong way. I am not going to take it out or edit it in any way....however, i would like to clarify my intention with the post. It was a rant..a way to vent my frustrations. In no way was it to be obnoxious toward any one or offensive. I do occasionally say bad words during frustations and come up with all sorts of wild scenarios in my head, which, being the normally rational and loving person, would never carry out.

These neighbors are very frustrating and i really don't think they are the kind you can come to terms with, with rational means..therefore as a means to help ease our frustrations we came up with "fantasy scenarios" none of which did we, or will we carry out...besides my husband has a really nice physique, so him parading around in a speedo type bathing suit probably would not be me on the other hand...i think i could clear the neighborhood..LOL~ nor did we send any mailings or any other type of vengeful thing. We simply are really not that kind of family. Occasional swear word in a rant..yes, Vengeful...NO~

So if you thought i was a crazy, vengeful person..i do apologize...I am not..I promise. I am however a bit eccentric at times..and can slip into potty mouth mode under dire situations...I apologize if that offended any one...

so back to the neighbors..since that previous post..they have had 3 fires behind their fence, they think that it hides everything they do...that or they are antagonizing us, two of which we could see flames above the 6 foot high fence...and they had called and lied and told the firemen that ours had 2 foot high flames and they came a smoldering pile(no visible flames)...any way..we did not call the fire department because we are worried that rather than responding to a safety issue, they are going to punish us even more. they, the fire man, did make a statement to the police that they were using us as an example of the "neighborhood feud" issue...i thought it took more than one person calling the authorities to make a one else ever gets into any one else's affairs around here...*Sigh* i just want to be left alone to live my my happy little world...

needless to say...we won't be burning any more fires...not even a camp fire in a pit..we really do do our best to abide by the law....

life just flies by

i have realized that i have slacked off on my blog posting..i love my blog..but it seems time warps are prevalant lately...

lets see....not a whole lot exciting lately..other than asshole neighbors on mothers day eve..came home to find out that the idiots called the fire dept again for our smoldering pile of leaves(our friend neighbors were watching it for us) biggie really, except these idiots don't like us and have a personal vendetta against started a few years ago when their son hit Tyrus with a clump of dirt that had a rock in it..and Tyrus had to have stitches...yes you read that right...OUR son was the one needing stitches...we never made any big deal out of it because all of the neighborhood kids were playing in a dirt pile throwing dirt clumps at each other...this one just happeend to have a rock in it and hit Ty in the ear against his glasses....he even went to shake the kids hand to let him know no hard feelings...two weeks later they call CPS on us(child protective services) They obviously watch us closely...When i usded to smoke, i smoked outside on the front porch and would let Jonathon come out with me to run around in the front yard..ALWAYS in my sight..but my front porch sits back and the neighbors couldn'tsee me..assuming i was not outside..what idiots...and ever since then they try to find anything to harrass it was rather annoying...and you just can't feel relaxed. We also suspect them of signing up several neighbors(the mail carrier varifies this) that they don't like, to all kinds of pornographic mailings and "gay"suscriptions and such...Matt and i were talking today, we should sign them up for any and all church/religous mailings we could think of...since they obviously need some intervention, ha ha!...oh and Art even thought maybe he could wear a banana hammock to do yard work and i could wear a thong bathing when they come hme they will have some interesting things to watch on their survellaince camera, mounted on the back of their house conveniently directed at our we might just go ahead and give them a show....oh and i told Matt next saturday we should get all of our tiki torches(no burning permit needed) and sit in the field with those....we can have our fire..and they can eat it...making fun of people like that is the best ammuntion..totally takes away their has been interesting the past couple of days...there is a ton more to the story but i won't bore you with any more details

On Saturday(before all the above crap)I had the pleasure of photographing our neighbors(the same ones that i metion above..the friend ones) for their mom...all of them! Matt and Michelle and his two sisters and all the fun~

TimothySherrithe Family~ Matt and Michelle and all three wee of the cousins..she was not happy..but i did manage a couple individual ones of her smilingElizabeth....she has the prettiest eyes~the whole crew...what a pile...i need to practice group sitting arrangements...but hey it was for free..and so fun~! i spent a lot of mothers day working on one of my blythe dolls rescues. This is Tori..she had some bad things done to her...i sand matted her and then repainted her make up..and gave her eyelashes...she looks so sweet now..i did put her pink wig back on until i have the time to redo her hair..she will have green fairy hair..she is my forest fairy...

she had bad scratches and over carved see more of my doll pictures visit my flickr site

she got new eye chips...Blythe dolls have 4 sets of pull a string on the back of her head and they change to a new set....they are called eye chips...two are front facing and two are left and right each set can be different...these are her left facing ones..irridescent with sparkles
here are her eyelids when her eyes are closed..i painted those too...
so there a nutshell version of the latest happenings...much more has happened..but please for simplicity go visit the above link to my flickr to see the pics...


until next time!~
