Brilliant Blog Award!

My good scrappy friend, April Driggers, just sent me a "Brilliant Blog Award" for my THE MOSY SCRAPPER blog!


THANKS April :)

If you are one of those that do not know what the "Brilliant Blog Award" is, you're not the only one! I have never heard of this and as I was reading April's blog (after she was awarded one too) it started to make sense.

It basically is a way to promote other blogs out there in the blog-world and help it (the blog) get it's name out...sort of networking or doing a little "PR" work. I say....GREAT! Here are the rules:

1.)Once you receive the award you have to post about it showing you received the award, what it is, who gave it to you and a link to them....yada, yada, yada. You catch my drift? Okay...

2.) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs, or more, that you feel should be awarded the Brilliant Blog Award.

3.) Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with 'Brilliant Weblog'.

4.) And then pass it on! that I have laid out the are my top 7 picks who I think deserve the "Brillant Blog Award"

1.) Dirty Shanks... - for those oh so funny cards that I wish I could have thought of making, but just to darn scared to! A great place to check out to get a snicker out of ya!

2.) Janet... - well...because she's a Jon Bon Jovi fan!! hahaha That's not all...I think that Janet is not only talented (and was born to scrap) but I feel like we could be really great friends if we lived close by! She's a sweetheart!

3.) Melissa... - simply because she's just down to earth and her creations ROCK! Love reading your blog girl!

4.) Pink Sketches... - love getting inspiration from sketches and seeing how some scrappers interpret the sketch!

5.) 2 Sketches for You... - Did I say that I like sketches?? This is a great blog for inspiration!

6.) Heidi... - a.k.a. SeesterK...what a scrapper! She's the "new" scrapper in town and boy is she scrapperific! She ROCKS. You should go check her out! I'm just so happy that I snagged her first for my DT before she get's all rich and famous! Hey Heidi...can I get your autograph??

7.) Make and Takes ( this blog for those cool ideas of crafts for the home or anywhere! I have to let my picks know. Thanks for reading!

Where have i been?

I have not been on here for a LONG time! EEK!

Let's see...what has been going on??

* website/store had it's 1/2 Birthday Bash Cyber Crop. THAT was a ton of fun!! Lack of sleep and scrapping...couldn't ask for more! I can't believe my message board is 6 months old already. Lots of talented and sweet ladies on there! You should come join and just chat with these ladies!

*I went to my niece's wedding, Jody, in Chicago. What a beautiful weekend! The weather was awesome too! Gotta love the grass up in not like the grass here in Florida. And there was no humidity! The fall is here! :)

*Now I'm back home and trying to get back on track with the daily chores, errands and trying to manage my message board and getting my store in line. Which I need to make changes to. That will all be in the coming weeks. I will have my October Monthly Page Kits and Project Add-ons in the store shortly...stay tuned!

*I changed the title to my blog...figured it fit! ;)

*Soccer practice starts today for my youngest daughter. She's soooo excited! I have to remember to bring my camera and post on here.

AND to post more often!

I have my friend's baby shower this Saturday at my house and then nothing until next weekend.
So, that's my month of September. October weekend's are already booked. So crazy I tell ya!

One of those "flip-flop" days

Ever walk out of the house in a frenzy and can't remember how you got on what you put on??

Well...that happened to me today. I went shopping with my niece Colleen for our friend, Amy's, baby shower...we first went to Hobby Lobby only to find out that they are closed on Sunday's...BUMMED!!! Then we decided to just go to old faithful - Michael's. We were in the store for about 45 minutes (with my sick son...poor man...he had a low grade fever, but he did awesome as usual...I think he likes shopping with mommy personally)...anywho...I'm at the checkout and as I was paying, Colleen says...

"you do realize that you have 2 different flip flops on?"


I look down...OH LORD!

"and you now tell me this?!"

DOH!! I had one silver flip-flop on and one brown flip-flop on. Now how in the world did that happen? I could have at least matched them in some odd way! I automatically go into back track mode and remember putting on flip-flops but not looking down. THAT WOULD BE THE PROBLEM! They luckily were the same brand and make so that is why I never noticed a different feel! Call me a dumba*@...DUH!

No one noticed during our ventures out to 4 MORE stores. I stood in line at Walmart and Bath & Body (so that wasn't one of our original spots nor a place for the baby shower gifts...but we had to take advantage of being in a town where the store is located) and not one person looked down at my feet...not like I'd want them too nor did I really want them to notice me. I mean...not even one of the teeny boppers noticed. THANK GOD!!! If I did this about 2 or 3 years ago I would have marched into a store to buy shoes that didn't care one bit! That is how I know I'm getting older! hahaha

So...when I arrived home I stood in front of my two girls that were planted on the couch and said...

"what is wrong with mommy's outfit."

I got a weird look from my oldest and my youngest daughter just pointed back and forth to my shoes. I told them what I did and they had the cutest expressions on their faces! Then a good laugh!

Glad to be a comedian today!

Moral: Make sure you do the up and down look before walking out of the house...even if you are wearing flip-flops! ;)
