Wow! It was another COLD one here! Oh, it was SO WINDY!!!
I only went to the post office today. I ran most of the way because it was so chilly.
Frida's back! She is getting flowers delivered to her from her friendly neighborhood crow :)
You can find her at ebay.

Here I go with more sweets!
I really need to curb my sweet tooth. But it's so hard to do!!!
Do they have "Mike 'n Ikes" there in the States? I eat those like crazy! I used to eat them when I was a kid. They came in boxes, now I can buy a big bag of them....and I do. Frequently. More than my dentist would like me to.
I have started to eat some trail mix. Same concept as the Mike 'n Ikes. Shake them in your hand whenever you get the urge. But they are better for you. I should try and just eat the trail mix instead..... My dentist would be so proud LOL
Anyway, the "CUPCAKE QUEEN" can be found on ebay.

I want to start by saying a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who gave me suggestions on my craft station. I actually haven't done anything to it yet. I never seem to have enough time to do the things I want to do. I think I will try and keep it minimal. I might add a couple of baskets to keep supplies in. I don't want it to get messy, so keeping it simple is best.
But in the meantime, LETS EAT CAKE!
I have a sweet tooth. I've ALWAYS had a sweet tooth... I have the dental bills to prove it :)
This new painting I did is good enough to eat!
You can find "MORE CAKE" at my ebay site.

I sanded the table, put a turquoise wash on it. I stenciled gold stars all over it....sanded it again, and put a gloss coating.
Then I found this little lamp with gold stars all over the shade! A cute moon and star at the base. Perfect!
I just need some suggestions on what all I should put at my work station. Do you see where my pens are? That is a cutlery holder. (I'm not sure what they are called).
Do you have any suggestions?

BRRRR! It is a cold one out there today folks!
Opie decided he'd snuggle up to Lily to keep cozy. As you can see by Lily's expression...she wasn't quite digging it.
I'm working on making a little craft station in my bedroom. I got a wooden table and stained it blue with watered down acrylic paint. I stenciled gold stars all over it! I will have to show you soon.

Santa must get pretty bummed this time of year. Everything "Santa" related is at least 50% off. How fickle are we?!!!
Well, I found this sweet little tape measure today at Chapters. You pull Santa's nose and out comes the tape measure!
50% off. Poor Santa. He must feel so used. Seems like we only will give him 100% in December.

How's your 2008 going so far? It got COLD here today! BRRRR!
I've been rearranging furniture and getting rid of old things that were just adding clutter. As you may know, I wrestled (and won) a sectional sofa, so, I've been sofa-free for a few days now. Sitting on the floor isn't as fun as I thought it would be. I don't spring up from the floor like I used to. Do you think pilates would help? I just *may* take a class. My core definitely needs strengthening. I think I'm now made of jello on the inside :)
I will be getting a new futon tomorrow. I never thought I'd get a futon again, but right now, it makes sense to me. It will be simple, easy to clean, and give me more space....to do pilates...(yea, right)
Oh and here is my newest painting. He's tricky!
You can find him up for auction at my ebay shop!
