..this is what happens..

..when the weather gets pretty around here. I disappear from my blog for days at a time, lol. I'm getting ready for Spring. We tilled our garden up yesterday, now we just have to decide exactly what we want to plant this year.

I managed to send off my Coraline Mystery Box and my Vintage Spring Sweetness Box without taking any pics of them first... *dink* So hopefully the recipients will take pics and let me have a couple ;)

I received my Coraline Mystery Box from my partner and it is so cool! Hubby has been using the camera all day, so as soon as he's done I will post pictures of it.

Today is a spring cleaning day for me, trying to get as much done as I can so that maybe I can craft a little tonight. With me taking on more subbing days, I haven't had time to do much, and I'm going through withdrawals! I can't leave this post without a picture of something, and since I haven't created anything (other than the aforementioned boxes that I didn't photograph *dink*) then I will leave you with my favorite fillers.. the LOLcats!

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

..i did wear green but.. can still pinch me if you want :) Just a little love pinch, not a hard "leave me bruised" pinch. I love this holiday. I love all things green, love that there is a holiday dedicated to luck (the only luck I usually have is not-so-good) and love that you can wear anything silly today, and as long as it's green, you're cool :D

So here's hoping you had a day full of luck!

Peace, love and shamrocks y'all!

Sunday, March 15, 2009's my birthday..

..and I'll be sick if I want to! Well, I don't really want to. But I seem to have a really bad cold. I felt it coming on Friday, and tried to head it off with some medication. Apparently I wasn't fast enough. So anyway, here I am, alone on my birthday, with the sickies. I just really hope I feel better tomorrow, because I'm taking over as Theater teacher at our local high school for the rest of the year. The current teacher is going on maternity leave. I can't be sick on my first day of school! :)

Meanwhile, I have resumed Playing Animal Crossing:Wild World on my Nintendo DS. I put it down for a while, not really sure why. But if any of you play it, I'd be happy to share my Friend Code with you so you can come see my weedy little town. That's what happens when you go away for a while, you get weeds :D Going for more medication...

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

Tuesday, March 10, 2009 edition..

Our recent warm weather is making me ready for Easter! :) I will be making a series of Egg Pins for Spring, up until April 15. No two eggs will be the same, and they will not be reproduced for custom orders.

The first little one up in the shop is my Robin's Egg with the pink flowering vine.

I'm so excited about these, and I'm going to have a hard time giving them up! :D

..candy candy candy..

It has been so pretty here the last couple of days. My thermometer says it's 73 degrees right now, and it's supposed to be warmer tomorrow. Oh how my toes have missed flip flops! of course that also means it's time for some spray tanning, lol :D

Anyway, the good weather is apparently making a lot of people happy, because I have lots of giveaways to tell you about. Just click on the names to be taken to the sites. So here they are.. in random order :D

*Craft Critique is having a reeeeeally big giveaway. You don't want to miss your chance at entering, seriously.

*Chocolate and Steel is giving away a totally awesome ring. Me loves it :)

*Vanilla Joy is giving away a bunch of EK Success tools, including a Cutterpede trimmer, which I need. My trimmer doesn't cut straight lines anymore :(

*Vanilla Joy is also giving away a Provo Craft Cuttlebug! I really, really, really want to win this :)

*Thrifty & Chic Mom is giving away a Just Be tee of your choice. These are really cute.

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

..hooray for sleeping late..

Today was the first morning in a long time that I got to sleep in. It was so nice :) Eventually I had to get out of bed because I heard the mail lady leave a package on our porch. I got to rub it in J's face today, because it was for me! (Usually he gets like, a package every day because he works part time for a R/C airplane company, but not today, ha!)

The box was from Emma's Paperie. They recently had their 1st Birthday Bash, and I won one of their prize drawings. I opened the box and saw that they had gift wrapped everything! It was so pretty, like they knew my birthday was coming :) It almost made me feel bad to open it... almost.

There was so much cute stuff inside. It was all love themed, which reminded me that I need more pictures of me and J. Thanks to everyone at Emma's Paperie for celebrating their birthday with me :D

In other news, I will have some more of these guys going up in the shop this weekend. I think they will go over well for Spring.

And I got more done on my Coraline project yesterday. That scary just-a-face now looks like this..

Well, it's a beautiful Saturday, and hubbo has to go back to work tomorrow. So I think I'm going to go spend some time outside with him.

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

So, you all know I love to swap.. I always keep the swaps I'm currently doing on my side bar, down at the bottom. Mainly it's to remind me what all I need to be working on, lol :D

Well I was lucky enough to get in on a Coraline Mystery Box Swap, hosted by My Little Mochi. She took this idea right here and gave the average gal a chance to own some handmade Coraline goodness. Two of the things you include in your box have to be handmade.. so here is my WIP.

Lol, it's a little scary, just being a face and all. But I'm hoping my finished project will look pretty cool. Hubbo's going on a boy trip tomorrow, so maybe I can get her finished. I have such high hopes for this one. If you wanna have a look-see at what some other people are creating, then check out our Coraline Mystery Box Flickr Group :) There is some awesome stuff there.

Dryer buzzer just went off. It's folding time (the worst part, lol)

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

..happy birthday dr. seuss!..

March 2nd is a special day,

I wait for it to come my way.

A day to party and let loose,

and to say...

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Another reason to love March is because today, March 2nd, is Dr. Seuss' birthday, and who doesn't love Dr. Seuss? That wonderfully creative man who gave us such great stories. I told the hubbo that in honor of today I was going to rhyme everything I said. But I don't see me rhyming all day.. I do have to go run some errands. I'd get some funny looks if I walked up to the post office counter and said, "Please I would like to mail this box. No it does not contain a fox. The only thing that's in this box, is a cute little pair of stripey socks!" Haha, that would be too funny :D Speaking of socks, I will celebrate the day by wearing said super cute stripey socks.

Anyone who knows me, knows I *love* socks, the longer and stripier the better. Toe socks included :D So anyway, whether you celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday or not, I leave you with this quote from the man himself, because I think it's an awesome quote..

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

..happy march!..

Happy March y'all! This is one of my two most favorite months of the year. And I knew it was going to be a good day when I woke up to snow! :) We see it so rarely around here that it's nice when it comes. Unfortunately it didn't last past sun-up, but it was still so pretty.

March is great because the weather is usually good, the flowers start blooming, you have St. Patrick's Day..I'm all about the green, the clovers, the luck. I even wear a necklace all the time with a pendant that says "Luck" and a little 4-leaf clover on it. And Good Luck Bear was always (and still is) my favorite Care Bear :)

It used to make me happy that March meant my birthday. But now that I'm edging ever closer to the dreaded 3-0, I'm not sure my birthday is such a good thing :D It is a good thing that March is National Craft Month. I'm hoping to have some crafting luck and get some stuff done! I want my creativity back, and if it's ever going to happen, I think this month will do the trick!

So here's hoping March will bring you lots of luck and creativity!

Peace, love, and koala fuzz y'all!
