...A friend of mine confused her Valium with her birth control pills... she has 14 kids but doesn't really care...
...I gave up jogging for my health when my thighs kept rubbing together and setting fire to my knicker's... (HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Knickers!)
...Skinny people irritate me! Especially when they say things like...'You know sometimes I forget to eat!' .......Now I've forgotten my address, my mother's maiden name and my keys, but I have never forgotten to eat. You have to be a special kind of stupid to forget to eat...
...I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating/drinking too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That's my idea of a perfect day!...
Good Night Y'all!

YOU MUST GO SEE THIS MOVIE.
Heath Ledger was chilling in his role as the Joker- no seriously... he was FABULOUS... such a shame he isn't here to watch the audience react to him... ) Aaron Ekhart definitely had his swagger on (Praise the Lord and Thank his Momma!), but BOY OH BOY... Christian Bale is HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT!!!!!
Go tell your hubby/boyfriend/sig. other that you really want to see it for his sake... and then DROOL in the popcorn ladies!
Tee Hee Hee... Delia.....

And since my "oh so appreciated" mother agreed to take the girls for a few days, I went to the consignment shop looking for some Shabby Chic goodness for Jillian's room re-do. (and also to pick up my checks, :-) ) Anyway, I came out with this instead!...
...sorry this picture sucks...
Now I think Abby's room is complete. Ahhh, FINALLY!
And I also started on one of the projects from Grace Violet... Look at my new fancy pants notebook... Perfect for jotting down all of those creative ideas that I want to work on!
easy peasy... Thanks Kristen!
Now if I could only find the right green for Jillian's Shabby walls...

I was just updating my link list and ran across A Spoon Full of Sugar's posting on her new work space. It made me think about how sometimes, as a wife and mom, I push myself to the back of the line. Not always, just sometimes. I HAVE to have a cup of coffee and some quiet time each morning, and I will ALWAYS read every evening, so that's not going to change. But when it comes to doing something you love, do you put it aside because it's "not that important?"
It took me a while to totally take over my girls overrun playroom for my studio. I sort of felt guilty about unloading all of those underused toys. But then, when I gave myself permission to spread out and revel in the idea of a space to call my own, I still held back. I didn't paint, I used things I had or found cheap ways to make due. Is a sewing room, just a sewing room? - ooo... that felt SO Carrie Bradshaw just then... ;-)
I think that by pushing our own heart's desire to the backburner, we are teaching our daughters the invaluable lesson of being a good doormat. We should foster their creative passions, and include them with our own. Yes, there are times when I go in my room to escape. But there are also times when I love to see the wheels turning in their own creative little minds. I think they need to know that the passions in their own lives are worthwhile. I hope that when they are older and maybe considering what they want to be when they "grow up", following their passions would be second nature by then. It may help them find the great love in their life. It may help them leave a not so great love. I think that by valuing our own selves, we teach them that it's ok to follow your heart and let it lead you to wonderful places. I hope that my girls learn quite early on to listen to where their heart is guiding them to. Hopefully, they will find places that fill their hearts and warm their soul.
Have a lovely creative summer day!

I've bitten off more than I can chew!
The ladies that I do the SLY Market with are working
Corrie at Quilt Taffy promised me that this was a good beginners quilt. And really, it is VERY beginner friendly. I'm more concerned about copying one of the fabric patterns onto the wall... Anyhow, I thought I'd show you what I've gotten done in a few hours. I think I like this! Quilting that is. And this 3 Sister's Simplicity fabric is so nice to work with. I may have to get more to make the girls some dresses with.
So, here's a big THANK YOU to Corrie for all of your help. I'll be coming back for more real soon!
