Finding Perfection!

Hey hey Party People! (ha - that was random but so needed!)

I am a little jealous of my friends right now! They are at a rodeo having fun - but I had to work this morning - so I wasn't able to go :( Boo on working Saturday mornings! Oh well - that gave me the opportunity to get a little creative tonight!!!

I went to Sam's today with my mom and her pretty new car!!! Little Highlanders are fun cars!!! I'm proud of my parents for finally getting a new car! YAH! And while at Sam's - I spend entirely too much money on nothing really - but I do love Sam's! So that got me in the mood to not sit at home! So I wandered over to the Crafter's Mall - which might I add - HAD NOTHING THAT I NEEDED! Uh! I hate that! Oh well - I did get some cute little Tea Towels with flip flops and sunglasses! I know Jody will just LOVE them when he sees them sometime tomorrow! hehe :) They I was on a mission since they did not have the pendant for a necklace that I need for a lady at work! So I went to Dusty's and was able to find something there that will work :) I spiced it up a little of course and this is what it turned out like!

I think it turned out pretty good!!! We'll just have to see what Miss Lorraine thinks :)

So that got me in the mood to "decorate" something - so I bought me a little something too!! I have NOTHING to go with it - but I'm sure I can find something in my travels to the mall in the coming month for SPRING TIME CLOTHES!!! Yah!!! Finally :) And this is what I came up with!

So ... now to figure out what to wear with LIME GREEN!!! (that is the color of the little crystals I put on it!)

And I finally was able to put together some necklaces with the beads my sister-in-law -aka - faithful follower! - picked out for me in my absense over the Easter holiday in Abilene! They are PERFECT and I love them!!!

Oh - AND ONE MORE! I'm not quite sure if I like this or not so I didn't glue it down or anything yet. The art of perfection and being a tiny bit obessive compolsive on everything being just right - got the best of me on this one :) I like the layed look - but I think paint would be better than just paper :) But we'll see what I can come up with to make it just what I want it to be!

oops! it's sideways - but i think you get get the idea :) let me know what you think!!!

OH K :) I guess I'm going to clean up my bead mess and go to bed! It has been a long day :) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for guidance and patience for me this week and the next couple of weeks that are headed our way :) I think (no - I KNOW) I need a little light shed on my world and what I am really supposed to be doing in my life! Jody and I read a devotional every night and I have found some pretty good little stories in there to keep me going - but trials keep popping up and I'm just not sure which direction I'm being led in right now! I almost feel like I'm walking in unknown territory since my life has been FLIPPED upside down since December. Everything really did happen for a reason - but my life was so "simple" with my day-to-day same ol' thing for 4 years and now - it changes in so many ways quickly - that sometimes I forget those purposes of December 1, 2008!

Much Love!!!

Hey Hey People!

HAPPY EASTER!!!! It has been an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day!!! Except - I did not get the memo that the MALL IS CLOSED!!! (AND TARGET, AND KOHL'S!) and Old Navy didn't get it either - but I couldn't find a single thing I liked! Haha - NOT EVEN ON THE SALE RACK! WIERD :) But - oh well - I went to Wal-Mart instead and got me 2 little Pansie plants and some seeds to plant in some pots I have - I am just way too impatient on the true Spring Time to get here!!! So now - after my crazy morning of burning easter cookies shaped like rabbits, eggs, and tulips - I thought I would share what my crafty friends did on Friday night!

Katy made these ---

and Misty made these ---

I must say - I HAVE SOME TALENTED FRIENDS! Poor Misty might have my obsession with buying beads!!! Haha - the girl brought over a box full!!! We still have some beading to do since she has some leftover :) YAH!

And of course I made one too!!! I can't wait to wear it because I'm pretty sure it's the cutest one I have made yet!!!

and for your viewing pleasure - I put some dog hair in each one of these photos! My little short legged dogs are the BEST - but they shed sooooo much right not it's not even funny :) But - I won't have it any other way!

K - I'm off to walk the dogs - hopefully before it thunders and Rylie goes crazy :)

Much Love!

Crazy Blizzard of March '09!

Hey People!!
This is just a little bit of what has been goin on in our world!!! Our crazy Panhandle weather gave me plenty of time to get some "bead-dazzlin'" done - and I thought I would share a little bit with you!!!
Poor little Yogs thought Jody was coming home - so I think he was just patiently waiting for the door to open around 5:30! He's so cute!!!

The ice was finally starting to form at the end of the storm and I thought it looked pretty cool!

Yogi caught a small snowflake to the eye - but all in all - he had a great time running and playing in the snow! Riley loved the snow too - she ran and ran and ran! It was tooo funny watching them play together! At one point though towards the end of the night - they were having to leap in the snow since it was getting so deep! They enjoyed it much more than I did! Being cooped up in my house was not fun - especially since Jody had to stay in Borger for the night!

This was about 8:00 at night! The little lights are solar powered - so how they came on during a blizzard that shed no sun light all day - is beyond me! They were really pretty against the snow though!

It was great to see snow - but I'm glad that it didn't last too long!

I have tried to take about a dozen pictures of this AWESOME ring - but the bling just gets in the way - so this is about as good as I could get! I saw a ring like this in the Crafter's Mall and fell in LOVE - so I made my own!!!

I wish I was a Red Raider fan because this would be the perfect accessory!!!
THANK YOU BLIZZARD OF '09 for allowing me to come home early from work to be CREATIVE :)
