I THINK I FOUND A WAY AROUND THIS BLOGGER THING...

I know that there is a way to use HTML codes on your blog. Like my signature for example, that is in code. But, when I compose a message it looks right. So, I am in the HTML page of the blog and I am going to put the code to my picture and see if it works.... FAT BOOK PAGE 2 best **** IT WORKED!! HAHAHA BLOGGER!!! **********SORRY YOU WILL HAVE TO READ THE FIRST POST TO SEE WHAT THE HECK I'M TALKIN' ABOUT. WHY IS BLOGGER SO HARD?? MAYBE I'LL HAVE TO THINK OF SWITCHING TO WORDPRESS. NOT SURE. YAY! IT WORKED!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!

FAT BOOK PAGES ARE AWESOME!!

Hi friends!  Hope everyone is well!!

I am all messed up again :(  It only takes a little thing to throw me off.  Case in point, I had to do the school shopping marathon this weekend.  MADNESS I TELL YOU!!!  People will cut your throat for the jeans they need for their child.  Kids will fist fight over a sweat shirt.  Mother's screaming into the changing rooms, CRAZY!!.

Thankfully, I have boys.  Large will be a junior this year.  Small will be in 8th grade.  Meaning, they could care less.  Just give them jeans, t-shirts, a hoodie and they are good.  So when they try on their pants they know to come out so I can check the waist and be an embarrassing/annoying mother.  So no screaming for me.  My boys are well trained very well behaved!!  *snort* 

Meanwhile, I mad another fat book page before the shopping.  It just took me till now to remember to post it!!

 BLOGGER WON'T LET ME POST IT!

*****BLOGGER WON'T LET ME UPLOAD ANY PHOTOS! THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO GO UP YESTERDAY BUT IT WON'T LET ME.  IT ISN'T SAYING "NO" IT IS JUST SHOWING THE SCREEN THAT THE PICS WOULD COME UP ON, AND IT IS MAKING A CIRCLE GOING ROUND AND ROUND TO FOREVER!!  WHAT NOW???******

Sorry for the no picture post.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!!

I was minding my own business, getting the mail, and I got the new Somerset Studio magazine.  Since I subscribe to it, I wasn't surprised.

Poe was on the cover, and I knew I sent them some Poe inspired things, but since I didn't get a letter I figured I wasn't in it.

But I looked through, just to be sure.

And what did I find?
MY ARTWORK IN SOMERSET STUDIO MAGAZINE, THAT'S WHAT!!!

The cover...

 The piece I sent them.  It is hard to take a picture of a picture in  magazine. 

 MY NAME!!  And the directions.

How crazy is this?  2 different magazines in 5 days!!  I'm so excited to check the mail now!! LOL!!

I am both honored and thankful!  It is an awesome feeling!!

And thank YOU for being my blog pals!!  You are all awesome!!

WOYWW 168

Happy WOYWW!!  Go visit our founder Julia at Stamping Ground to see what all the fuss is about!!

Short, quick post.  I finished the vacation journal, but I have to save it to show at the Smash book party in September (the button is on my sidebar).  And my long counter contains stuff I can't show you!!!  EEK!  So busy I'm going to freak out!

Here is my small desk and wall mounted supply holder.

And this is what you see to the right.  A black filing cabinet with stuff on the top.


And this is what is on top of the cabinet.  My Hello Kitty lamp, and a fabulous junque store find of the wood cabinet with the tin bins.


That is it my friends.  Thank you for visiting, and thank you so much for leaving me comments!!  You are all awesome!!

BIG NEWS I'M SO EXCITED!!!

OK, I was looking through the mail and there was an envelope.  No return address.  I opened it and found this....



This was a HUGE surprise!  I have a card I made for a challenge that should be in the winter issue.  The challenge was to use tape.  I decided to use mesh drywall tape.  The card is on page 72, but they also have a "A Second Take" section where they show a little piece of people's work to show that part off, and my drywall tape is there too!

I'm not sure of the publishing but I guess I can show you the pics inside.

See?  That's my name on the left, and my card on the right.  The red circle says it was for the winter issue's challenge.

 Here is the little piece.
How awesome is this?????

I am super excited!  Thanks for letting me show off a little bit!

WOYWW AND TAGS

Another WOYWW today.  Please go and visit Miss Julia to read all about us and our need to "Peek"!
Unfortunately, my desk has not changed.

I have everything exactly where you saw it last week.  I can not move it until I finish our vacation journal!!  You know how it is, you have a project started and you put everything you need all around you and if you move JUST ONE THING you will never finish!!  So, this will be done this week for sure!!

Meanwhile, I have some tags I made for Altered Arts Magazine.    The website, blog and Facebook are all in the midst of an overhaul, but you can still visit or "like" us!!

Many materials were used, as usual.  Layers of paper, stamps, gauze, book paper, buttons, ribbons, inks and some Pink Paislee ephemera.  Summer is quickly coming to an end, and I'm holding on to it as long as I can!  

Now go and visit all the desks!  I am going to be doing a lot of peeking today.  And thank you to all who visit!!!  I love reading your comments!!!  You are awesome!!

WOYWW #166

I am finally back to playing along with Julia and her WOYWW party!  Click her name and read all about it!!
I am so messed up since I went on vacation!  Is it only me or is it hard to get back to "real life time" when you get home?
Here is my work desk.  Tons of madness everywhere while I assemble my Smash book with my pictures and pieces of this and that from my vacation.
Can you see my badge on my shelf by the tacky glue?
Enjoy visiting everyone's work spaces!!

I'M HOME!

 We had a wonderful time! Now, I have to get back to reality, and catch up with everyone and everything!!!

I made these ATC's for Altered Arts Magazine.  I can't get away from the summer theme!
I painted the cards with blue and yellow paint, I mixed them together to make the green in the middle.  I added Pink Paislee stamps, with Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink.  And wood pieces also from Pink Paislee, that I painted and added glitter to.  Everything looks better with glitter!!!

I hope you have had a wonderful week while I was gone!  I'll see you at your blogs soon!
