~ Rain Rain Rain ~

Today is Gorgeous !! It has been raining allll day and the sky is nice and dark. This weather relaxes me so much.  I really wish it would rain more often.  My baby and I sat outside for a lil while so we could enjoy the cool beautiful day.  Any of you like the rain?  Everyone I tell this too says im but I love it, always have. My cat came running up wanting to get in the house, he was funny! He was soaked and you could tell he was mad..haha... he just sat there looking at me like.. i hate you, open the door ! ... haha...  That is all for now, i just wanted to share a lil bit about my day, hope everyone is doing great.

~ Decisions Decisions ~

Hello hello ... How did everyone's weekend go ? Mine went really well, spent it out and about enjoying the cool weather.  My next outing will be to look at bird cages.  I love birds and am now trying to make my mind up on whether to get an Orange Weaver Finch or an Owl Finch.  About two years back I had a Rice Java Finch, Jasmine was her name, that I loved !! She was beautiful, solid snow white with a bright orange beak.  The song she sang everyday was very relaxing to me and unlike anything I had every heard before. (( R.I.P. Jasmine :(  ))... So I want to get another one that my son and I can enjoy together. They have wonderful personalities and are just soooo pretty.  Do any of you have either of these birds or ever had them?  Some tips or advice would be great to maybe help me make up my mind.  They are both beautiful so this is a hard decision for me.  Here is a picture of each bird so you can see for yourself how pretty each one is.  Let me know what you think... I might have to have everyone vote! lol ... if I cant make up my mind ;)

Here is the beautiful Owl Finch ... (female).. (( I like that Both the male AND female are pretty, unlike many other bird species where only the male is pretty.. how unfair is that !! ))
The Orange Weaver ... (( I Love orange and black !! so I find this lil guy to be just gorgeous. ))
I forgot to mention one more I'm interested in ... This one has an amazingly long tail !! I LOVE it !
This one is a Pentailed Whydah... Gorgeous!!

Let me know what you think :)

~ After Thanksgiving ~

   Well it is the day after Thanksgiving.... and all those sales are going on.  Anyone go out and do the black friday shopping ??  Me and my mother went out for a lil bit, but thats about it.  It was a mad house !!  We havent done that in Years !  Anyone get any great deals ?? 
    My Thanksgiving went really nice.  Brandon played with my niece and nephew all day, and had a great time.  He even made himself a new lil friend, my sisters boyfriends sisters baby.. lol.. you get that ? Brandi did a great job with the meal she prepared for us all.  We had delisiouls turkey with tons of sides and my favorite bread rolls !! mmmmm gooood..... The air was full of good conversation, baby laughter and our stomachs full of good food.  So all in all it was a great day.  I hope everyone else's day went smoothly.

Wonderful Day

Hi everyone ... I hope that the day is going well for all of you out there.  Mine has started out to be a wonderful day, and I hope it stays that way. I woke up to find that my card i recently posted on ebay, the black and white card I have shown on here a couple posts back, has sold.  :) My very first item ever  ! Very exciting :) ... Today is also wonderful for me because the weather is just how i like it.  There are clouds all in my grey sky, it has been sprinkling on and off, its cool and there is a very relazing breeze blowing through the trees. So now that I have taken in the beautiful day outside and spent some time with my playful puppy, Lobo, I have drawn back the curtains on the window I sit in front of in my craftroom and am ready to create some more items for my design teams, (JustAFewDesignTeam), 12 Days of Christmas.  :)  Hopefully I get lots done.  ... Have a Blessed day

Days Fly By

... Well another day and night went by and I didnt do anything crafty ... I did get some house work in though, which is a good thing ... but not fun ! lol ... Just seems like i dont have enough time in the day to do what needs to be done and what i WANT to do.  The days just fly by. its Friday.. what happened to wednesday ! ? I keep saying that i need a pause button for life.  Especially when it comes to my lil boy.  I feel as though I just had him and he is already two !! I just cant get over that.  Even my dog is growing up too fast.  He was just a lil fluff ball what seems like yesterday and now I have this big guard dog in my back yard.  I think someone switched them out when i wasnt looking.  When i stop and think about all these fly by days it is almost stressful.  There are so many things that i put off ... by saying oh ill do it tomorrow , and i never do.  There is always someting else i have to get done.  Anyone else do this or feel overwhelmed with life ? ... I think we all need to take just a lil time out of our days to spend on OURSELVES and not feel quilty about it.  We need to be able to brush off all the stress that piles on.  The other night i went outside and it was so nice and cool, there was a breeze the swept over my face and through my hair.  It was very relaxing to stand there under the moons light and just take in the peace and quiet. There were no sounds of traffic or loud stereos passing by, just the sounds of the wind passing through the trees.  That is the moment that i was able to really relax, and find that peace within again.  What gives you back your peace within ?? Is it sitting in a comfy spot and reading your favorite book ? ... or writing ?  or drawing , or sipping on a cup of hot tea or coffee??  Whatever it is, I think we need to do more of it.  I think people would be so much happier in life if they took a lil time out of thier day and just let go of all the negative or all the stress or all the worries that weigh down on them.  I have spoke to people who say things like.. hmm I used to draw.  and they sound so sad, like if that part of them died.  Cause life gets in the way.  Well,.. dont let that happen!  Leave me some comments letting me know how you find that peace within.  ... Thats all for now :)   I hope everyone has a GREAT day !
