When Olive Garden breadsticks call my name...

I just have to go!

And Fritz and his Daddy don't mind going either. Oh Fritz, where is your smile??

Wednesday Craft Update~~It's in the wood.

I wanted to start a new craft project where I would have most of the supplies already on hand. There are a few that should be started soon, but one I just couldn't resist and will be getting my hands on pretty quick. Painting wooden bangles. I love this as I can really be putting my creative art brain on 'think' time and (hopefully) come up with some great new stuff for my store! I only have one ingredient that I need to find before I can start. Here's hoping that's this weekend. ~Have a crafty week!

Sundays with Fritz-The Case of the New Girlfriend

So yeah... I decided to finally dump my girlfriend that I have had since last July 4th for a new one. I just figured since I never see 'R' anymore and 'Z' has really soft pretty hair (hey I am a guy I can have lousy reasons for liking someone!) that I'm good to go with a new cootie-filled girlie on my arm. She is pretty cute tho!

Fritz (a.k.a. stud muffin) is signing off...

It seems these days are cold once again...

So let's warm up a bit with that hot cup of cocoa or coffee or tea and sit down next to that warm fire. Brrr... The weather gave us a misunderstanding when it was nearly 60 degrees F last week for a nice few days. Playing outside in the dirt with tractors and diggers, basking in that glowing sun. And then... snow. Ugh. That's Montana for you!

Lunches are better when not planned...

My oldest, longest friend (not kidding, we were baby pals) Brianne, was in town yesterday for a doctor visit for her little munchkin-poo. Not having much time to girl talk a lot over the past couple of months, it was nice to sit down over shared salads and egg rolls for that chit-chat over every topic available.
Bri is one of those lights in a persons life that is hard to escape from. Wanting to gravitate towards that wonderful light and be surrounded by it. Her love of friends, vast brain (seriously, ask her anything and she will know something on the subject!) and views on life's little moments are just many of her wonderful qualities. How great is it to be surrounded by people like that? Lovely.

And more to make me have the giggles...

More of my purchase from Etsy. I LOVE Etsy and all the wonderful crafters/shops!

*Lovely fun tote bag
*Hot pink crystal earrings to match a ring from a different Etsian

*Beatles lyrics ink printed on a very old dictionary page

For some one (such as I) who once was a once a week shopper, I have since mended my ways to only every so often of shopping bag bliss. Besides the monetary advantages to this practice, the healing part of realizations on not holding on to material 'things' has been quite an eye opener.


Until that shopping bug bites you in the ass and says "Hey chica, where the hell have you been?! We've missed you and get your nice little charge card butt over here!". No, no worries of a shopping addiction, (wink, wink) it's just nice to spend that little bit of cash on me instead of housemaking and humans under 3 feet tall.


***Monica, don't laugh. I swear to you I don't have a problem.... well we know I do, but not shopping! Ok, Ok.... I will admit to a wee bit of over indulgence in this instance, but can you blame me? No, I know you can't. ;) Love you!

A few splashes... lovely finds on Etsy.

Rewarding myself on taxes done well before the deadline, I treated myself to a few of my 'faves' on my favorites list on Etsy. Besides buying a beautiful Japanese geisha-esk print and that being gorgeous in itself, it was a more impressive start to have such a beautiful package arrive on the outside! Oh, I wish I could put ink on paper as pretty!
And these delicious Japanese fabric magnets to make those boring ol' fridge doors look better!
More to follow...

The true test...

of Motherhood is when those poor little wee ones are horribly sick with the cold and chills. And there is hardly anything a Mommy can do. Cuddles and nose wipes, stories and cartoons, but most of all just that Mother Love.

Sundasy with Fritz- The Case of the Race Car.

It was my Mommy's birthday on Saturday, but she told me that it would be fun to go to Home Depot to build a race car. I couldn't have agreed more! Daddy helped me put the pieces together and when it was all finished we got to race it down a track! Now if every day could be like this....... awesome!!!

***Yes, that is my happy smile.

Still winter I guess...

Frosty. Still. Alfie the cat has it right. Hide under the covers to stay warm until those cold and dreary days have gone by.
Have a wonderful weekend all!

Wednesday Craft Update ~~ Out of my comfort zone.

There are those days when all inspiration is.... gone. Where to find it? Will it come back? It seemed I was in a bit of a beading funk of late. Not wanting to really bother with any new ideas or to even bring out supplies. So I decided. Screw it.
Just DO IT!
I didn't want to start with easy I-can-do-this-in-my-sleep-design, so I thought it would be a perfect time to step out of that comfort zone. Who would'a thunk beading has a comfort zone?? But really, it was only one bracelet (first pictured) that I made where I studied the beads trying to figure out what I was doing with them. Yes there is still some pattern, totally me, but with such random colors and shapes I question what the heck I was doing until it was finished.
Then I looked at it and loved it.

Here is a set. First one to soon be on My Shop.

Something simple, but funky.

Ready for the blue sky days ahead.

Have a crafty week!
