Happy Leap Day!
We're under a Winter Weather Advisory. A light snowy mist is falling and all after school activities have been cancelled, Scouts and tutoring. Madison still has cheer practice tonight. I don't go out in snow storms, so Dwayne will take her. He has me so spoiled, and I <3 it!
The winner of this week's free beads is Bea R. from TX. Congratulations on winning Winter Blues, Bea! I have your address and will get it out to you. :) The new freebie is up and it's Flower Bouquet. Thank you so much for voting!
Have a lovely day!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! :)
Just figured out why I have trouble falling asleep. I love Crystal Light. My favorite flavor is Ruby Red Grapefruit, but I switched to Peach Tea this week for a change up. I try my best to drink 2 quarts every day, so can you imagine 2 quarts of tea?! No wonder I'm up past midnight! Dr Oz recommends a gallon of water everyday. Good thing I didn't try for that this week. I'd have insomnia for sure!

New beads today... Fly Away Home
and Hello Hitty. Thanks for checking in today!
Our kiddies are on Mid Winter Recess this week and look what Dwayne got us for breakfast, Dunkin' Donuts. I ate the pink heart with cream filling. Yum! It totally blew my diet, but a girl's gotta live a little, right?!...lol
Two new sets coming up in just a bit. :)

It's a beautiful Saturday morning. The birds are chirping and the wood peckers are pecking away at the trees. Dwayne says they must be having a carpenter's fest in the woods behind our house, because they're so darn loud!...lol

Tiny snow flurries are falling today. They say it's not supposed to stick because the ground is still too warm. It sure is pretty, though.

Why-the-Chicken-Crossed-the-Road Santa Fe-Tastic Tortilla Soup recipe by Rachel Ray is what's for dinner. OMG!!! It's the BEST soup I've ever, I mean ever, made. If you love hot & spicy Mexican food, like me, you will <3 it. It's yum with a capitol O. Yum-O!
And the winner is. Drum roll please... Congratulations to Roxanne M. from WA. She won Just Ducky. I have your address, hun, so I'll get it in the mail. The new freebie is up and it's Mooooo! So cute. Thank you so Moooo-ch for voting! :-)

It's all about flowers in my 5 new sets today... Tulips, posies, roses and daisies. Free first class shipping with $25.00 minimum purchase. Happy Valentine's Day!
Jordan got job at our friend's theatre, and he's so excited! After he completes another weeks worth of training, he'll be running movies all on his own. This weekend he ran Joyful Noise, Underworld and The Grey, which we saw and it was okay. It was so neat knowing Jordan set up the film and ran it for us. We're so proud!

Well, it looks like we're in for some snow showers, so it's time to put the bikes away. There hasn't been very much of it at all this year. My kids will be very excited.
I made an adorable sculpted flower set today, Pocket Full of Posies, that I will post tomorrow. Wow! Is that all I did this week?! Working on our taxes really sucked up my week... I'm so happy they're done. :)
Happy Friday everyone!

The weather continues to be sunny and beautiful. Our friends say, it's the most unseasonable Winter they've ever had. And today my kids are out riding their bikes. How crazy is that for February in Central, NY?!

We just filed our taxes using Turbo Tax. I was nervous about trying it this year, but it walked me though easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. So glad that's over with. What a relief! :)
Corie D. from IL won this weeks free beads drawing, A Little Bit of Whimsy. Congratulations, Corie. Send me your address, hun. The new freebie is Just Ducky. OMG! Is it cute or what?!

I'm working on our taxes today and it's going pretty smoothly. Yay! Keeping fingers crossed we get a nice refund. That's what we all hope for, isn't it?! Well... hope and pray. We hope to receive money back, and pray we don't owe. It's so nerve racking, isn't it?!

What a fantastic Super Bowl!!! Right down to the final minutes. It was so exciting, wasn't it? Dwayne played in the football pool. You know the one where you pick squares. Would you believe he won the 1st and the 2nd quarter... the 3rd quarter no one was on, so it rolled over to the 4th, and guess what? He had the 4th quarter too and took the whole thing... $50 bucks! He was so tickled saying, "I never win anything!" Our team may of lost, but we went home with cash in our pocket. What fun!

The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. What a beautiful Friday!
Did you notice I changed my logo? I'm not very savvy when it comes to doing that kind of thing. I'm so proud of myself. :)
I have three new bead sets to share with you today...
First I have Dirty Martini and matching sliders. I <3, <3 these. They're sooo pretty!
And Carribbean Blooms. So fun & colorful. Could you picture yourself in the Carribbean wearing these, or maybe on a cruise? Wouldn't that be wonderful?!
Have a happy Super Bowl Sunday! I'll be wearing my football earrings and cheering for the Patriots. Woo Hoo! I love the Super Bowl!!!

Burned my forehead with the flatiron this morning. Hate it when that happens! Good thing I have bangs so you can't see the red mark...lol
Made some new pretties today, bead sets and a slider set. Gosh, how long has it been since I've made a slider set? It's been awhile. Will have them up for you tomorrow.
Have a lovely day! :)
