Bio & Headshot

Well Hello there! If you've stumbled your way to this blog WELCOME! I'm a widwestern gal who is darn crafty. I love taking all kinds of pictures,  but taking funny ones of myself are my favourite. I am a t.v. and movie addict who can remeber all kinds of movie history, actors names, dates and trivia, however, I cannot seem to remember where I put my purse, keys and sometimes my children! 

To learn more about me you can get a backstage tour by clicking on the different links and visiting the bio/headshot area.

roller coasters

Roller coasters are not my thing. I have never enjoyed that feeling of being out of control and  plummeting to the earth at 100 mph. This is the kind of week I've had. That feeling of racing, racing, racing, and then the crash and burn. I am so looking forward to this weekend... although there will still be lots of activity I am going to go for a balance of some sorts....

Thought I'd share with you the wearable- art apron I made to wear during the trunk show.

 Wish I could take credit for this genius idea... butt that goes to this lady .

Ella loves it so much I said she could have it to display in her room.

I have to place an order for more, they were so fun to make. Hobby Lobby sells canvas aprons as well, but Donnas have more style to them. The ruffle at the bottom and the pockets on the front. I am thinking about using some canvas triangle shaped pieces that Archivers sells for little banners. I'd like to decorate them and  then attach them to the apron with old clothes pins.

No sales... but you an hardly blame em. As I was standing there I got to thinking if I had just come from running or a spin class would i want to look in a mirror in bright daylight with a floral thinga ma jingy on my head?

I think not!

But I am so thankful for the opportunity, you live and learn. And now I am totally prepared for my Etsy shop, which I am happy to say is OPEN for business. I would never be this far if it weren't for Terri, so THANKS Terri! xoxox

and lastly...

Have you heard about Oprah's favorite things Chicken Pie?

Well she claims it is THE BEST CHICKEN PIE EVER!

I will say I was very thankful to have something in the freezer that I could just throw in the oven and bake, but BEST ?...

 With a dash of salt and a sprinkle of pepper it was tasty. Brad and I both thought it needed the peas and carrots. It's called chicken pie not chicken pot pie... and I needed the pot .

Well... actually my tummy wanted the pot part, but my butt certainly didn't need it. There are 36 grams of fat and 810 calories per 1 cup slice!

That can be half your caloric intake and all your fat and more... for the day... in one meal!

So have at it Oprah...

I'll skip it and stick to spinning!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
