Good morning!
That's so pretty, Katie...

My kids tell me there is no school today.

I thought it was a joke but turns out there really is no school... once I flipped the calendar, it said teacher workday. Lucky me! Smile

At least that is a good excuse not to have school. Smile

I've been cruising around scrappy sites looking at new DT announcements... MLS, Jillibean, Imaginesce, etc.--I see the same names again and again.
It's like a handful of people have a monopoly! I feel like I'm seeing the same designs 20 times... but I do like all of their work, but just once, it'd be great to see a WILD CARD thrown in, someone more arty... jmho

Morning everyone!

i thought about messing with the board but I was too tired last night. I do love seeing what other sites are doing (all the photos on Pinterest were upside down for a while).

And Katie I love your April fools day joke. I wish we had gotten one last snow in. And Ill take colder weather if it means snow but we had lots of 35-40 and rainy days here. blech.

Ugh, we got that crap too last night Katie! I'm sooooo not a happy person today Sad Between the snow coming down, being wide awake for almost three hours last night, feeling like I'm coming down with a cold, and being locked out of the office when I got to work today (because even after working here for 5 years, they still have not given me keys), it's just not going well yet. And, I need a coffee. The weekend needs to be started.

there are so many talented paper artists. it always surprises me to see the same names over and over during a season.

oh, but it is no joke. Sad the power has flickered a few times now. i should just relish in being cooped up, but having a hard time with that since it was such a snowy winter & we were just starting to see green through the white.

Katie- You just keep that snow in Maine, 'kay? I am soooo ready for warm weather!

Today's to-do list includes grocery shopping and getting some things ready for listing on ebay. I was supposed to get my nails done this morning but, after being wide awake in the middle of the night, I slept 'til 9:00 and my appointment was for 9:15. I rescheduled for tomorrow.

Katie - What Cindy said......keep it!!!! lol

Alecia - I agree, another thing about that that I hate....is sometimes their pages seem to repeat themselves....I am in this habbit at times but am working hard to mix it up

Oh I know! I won't even try out for teams anymore because even if they like my work I know you need to be blogging every day, having a following, published often, etc. I think being on big DT has turned into a job and only so many are really doing everything that needs to be done to get that "job". KWIM? I think it creates the situation where its the same people. I love some of those people, but agree I would love to see some variety. I remember when Elsie first hit the scene and it was so cool to see something so different!

I decided to take today off last night since there is nothing going on and I was feeling rundown. Well I was RIGHT because I slept from 1 to Noon!!!!!

NOON!

I woke up because I had to go potty and my back hurt from sleeping so long.

I am going to lunch with DH, then a movie, then I have knitting tonight with Mara and this new group we joined.

Then scrapping tomorrow Smile

Bree, Morgan wanted to go see Hop.....maybe we'll just wait and get it thro netflix, lol!

A knitting group sounds fun, we don't have any kind of fun groups here, and being a small town the one club we do have (stamp club) they are older women and do not wish for new comers.....which is fine I'm not a huge stamper just here and there.

Bree, yes I agree it is alot of work for the bogger sites and supa hard competition to even try out against. I def. don't blog enough......blah

Well, it finally happened...
an alligator swam right up to my feet as I stood by our lake, a four-footer, a small one, but EEK!!!!!
I have to call FWC to come trap it, if it's big enough. Scary... all the rain must have driven it onto our property.

and I'm not April fooling...
actually, it had a smaller head than I thought alligators had. But crocs don't come up this far, they are only in Dade and Monroe counties.
