The one where the swap goodies are!!

Where to begin?! Well, the goodies pictured above are from the lovely and talented Jenelle, of the Sleepy Hollow Craft Company. Jenelle was my partner in Monica's Deck the Halls Swap, and I couldn't have had a better partner! Not only is everything just wonderful, it was also early!! The pictures are not the best quality, because while I am able to post pictures again (YEAH BABY!!!!!!!!) I accidentally deleted my Photoshop (DUH!) so I need to reinstall it. For now though, I was just so happy to be able to post, that I wanted to share the treasures that I recieved from Jenelle.

My goodies for Jenelle are nearly done, and they will go out on the first, and I will post some pics of them as soon as they are mailed out :)

Science Fair is over as of yesterday, shark report is handed in, Cub Scouts Ceremony is over, and I really need to take some pictures of my Christmas goodies and post, I swear I have been going through blog withdrawal!

In more good news...hey, did anyone know that there are USB ports on the back of your computer? Neither did I!! All of this unable to print, Science Fair woes, printing at my Aunt's house....well, my Uncle Terry, who is a computer genius, mentioned that the USB ports in front are merely for convenience, and that there were two in the back of my computer. I swear, I muttered the curse word of all curse words (Only I didn't say fudge...) and low and behold, I coulda been printing all along!!! Slap my mouth and color me purple. Well well well. I didn't know whether to drop dead or dance!! So all is good again, we got the part for my oven (did I mention that it broke?) and we have a new and running dishwasher. Hot diggity!!!

Here is one more thing, I'm just going to add it in, its a shadow box type wall thingy (that's the technical definition LOL) that I painted and jazzed up. It started life brown, and here it is Frostings and Sparkled

Well, I am off to read some blogs, it feels so good to be back!!

Now in my ETSY

Sadly I still cannot upload, but I have been making so much stuff for the Holiday ArtShow that I have decided to put a couple of things on Etsy. Now in my shop are:

I have so many goodies that I'm itching to share, I've been hitting the glitter like an addict, and it has been great! Hopefully I will be able to post pics again soon. Today the belt on my minivan broke, but on a brighter note, we got a new dishwasher :D So I can officially allow my family to eat again LOL

What a week! (or The one with the whine)

I had a show today (and tomorrow) and its been a bit hectic! I'm so excited for Tuesday, the kids will be back in school, and the first round of shows will be over, a good cuppa and some lovely blog reading is awaiting me!

All good things must come to an end, and so it happened with my USB port. The constant plugging and unplugging of the camera, iPod, and printer (by the not so little hands of my darling children) has taken its toll, and it has been completely pulled out of the computer. I have to take it in to the Geek Squad, as I can no longer print or upload (Just in time for not only my show, but also the Science Fair, arrrrrrrgh!) The Science Fair is like a full time job, so I will affectionatley remember this week as Hell Week, and I'm sure there is a very special place in heaven for mothers, where they hopefully they serve a good stiff margarita. Hey, at least I don't have to eat a live goldfish, there's always a bright side.

On top of that, we had relatives from Ireland visiting this week, which was absolutley fantastic, they are so much fun, and we don't get to see them nearly enough, but as I was cooking dinner for them, my dishwasher began smoking, and it turns out the control panel MELTED. When it rains, it pours, right? So dishes by hand, a big hole where my dishwasher should be until we get a chance to go get another one, and after my show tomorrow I'm hosting a jewelry party. I have 3 hours though between my show and the party, so hopefully I can pull it off.

I wish I could share some pics of my booth, because it turned out really cute, but it will have to wait. Can't wait to see all of everyone's new goodies, and to finish up my ornaments for the Deck the Halls swap!!
