Good Morning Sunshines!

Good Morning Sunshines!

If you get the chance...
{make the chance please, pretty please..}
Go over and visit Nay at 

I'm guest posting over there today.  Can you imagine?  She knows my antics and STILL 
let me post! {wink} 
Be sure to follow her, she's full of wondeful words; and keeps constantly making my day!

Sooo...My weekend was filled with HIGHS and lowsThe Highs were a big giveaway I will be involved in with some really great woman who have tons to teach me.  It starts tomorrow and you can bet I'll be advertising the link.  
{My giveaway will be on Thursday} 
The lows were filled with …{dun dun dunnn} Can you guess?  Yah, of course Mr. B.

However, we persevered and in the end of the day
{or the beginning which ever he happens to bully us}
that is all that matters. 
 Perseverance, endurance...prayer.

I have new ideas flying through my brain and I’m really excited about them. 
{If I can get them out of my head}   

I told the kids, “Kids this week you are going to be taking care of me.  I have a ton of work to do and I need you to step up to the plate and make dinners, clean up after yourselves and take care of the house.  I am not leaving the craft room.”

I was so proud of myself; standing up for me and all, laying down the law.

{Only one of my kids was still looking at me when I finished the above mentioned soap box moment.  Well one 1 out of 5 that’s not too bad… Okay fine, who am I kidding?  Those odds bite.  But it’s all I’ve got.  I’ll just pray instead!}

I also am making something fun for a giveaway I’m going to hold after I hit 100 followers.  I don’t even know how that happened.  I am so excited to say that a bunch of those followers actually read my blog too.  What?!  That is so exciting!

As I told you I’m not much on the giveaway thing.  Don’t get me wrong they’re fun as heck but giving away something of mine makes me feel better.  I don’t want to gain followers off of someone else’s work ya know?  But surprises are fun, so I go back and forth on this one.  

{Makes me feel a little funny.  Strangely enough for how much I speak my mind…I’m fairly polite and thoughtful.  Weird I know.  My Mama taught me that.  Well she taught me both actually. Wink

I have participated in a few by accepting the invitation of offering up my work for them but the other way around I'm just not sure...I told you I don't fit in :/ 

So, I’ll give you a hint.  The giveaway is going to be a fall sign with a little sporadic thought I wrote about fall.
{Nice hint right?  You'll never guess what it is!  Haha!}

Okay, I’m off to work.  I hope you all had a wondermous weekend!  To all of you who have another version of a “Mr. B” or struggle in your life; don’t forget to Endure to the end.  There are a lot of us out there and I’m here if you need me!

Happy Monday!



P.s.  Scroll down to enter the giveaway for my pumpkins.  Did you get the irony in all of this giveaway stuff?  Haha!


  1. Good for you standing up for yourself!! I wish I could do that around here, my girls are too little. Hayden would just laugh at me. :)

    Sorry about Mr. B. :(

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you have cooked up as a surprise for all of us!

    And... may I just say... no wonder you don't get anything done around there, you are distracted by your fonts and colors! Hahaha! I do the same thing. Only thing is I haven't touched my colors yet, just font and bold. =D

  2. I cannot believe you called me distracted! Haha! The thing is I write my posts about 1am-ish so I can afford to play with colors and fonts. The kids are sleeping ;) I missed you this weekend!

  3. so much fun reading your blog... i like how you highlight some things, makes it catch my attention, and i oh so love the wink thing at the end... that is really cool, almost feel like you are talking to me face to face... LOL

    hope you and your family are having a great day!


  4. I love your blog! I found you through Nay's post. :)

  5. I LOVE how you do all of your comments and fonts. It helps me understand you more and feel like we're in a room with a roaring fire and cocoa and wonderful bookshelves lining the room... and we are having a sweet conversation between very close friends!!!

    I never think you are wasting your time...I know that you do it ALL...and if you want to make your (bleeping) posts pretty, then do that! Make them prettier, gawdy even! GO ALL OUT! This is your outlet of creativity...I just wish I had all the fonts you have - LOL!!! Love you chicky!

  6. Can you come chit chat with my family? I need someone to stand up for ME! (besides me, they never listen to me!). And I too love all the fonts and adds interest and character!!! :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I heart them oh so much!
