Hi all! What's new, what's up?? I'm so glad today is friday. I'm ready for a weekend. I'm going to paint and chill and chill and chill....

C's in arizona this week with J. They are dirt biking, street biking (they rode to California to see the ocean, how cool!) and whatnot. I can't wait to see him MoNday.

I think I'm going to see Memoirs of a Geisha tonight. I read the book, hopefully the movie will be good. It looks like there's a lot of eye candy visuals in it. de-Lovely.

Anyone want to do a swap with me?? I'll trade a painting for some other piece of art or craft. Let me know. I've been doing swaps through Purple, Pink and Orange, but I thought I'd see if anyone else out there reading my blog (ha!) wanted to swap.

I saw a friend from North Carolina last night. It was really cool catching up. Just remember, not everyone is as nice as it is outside. haha!

Alright peeps, have a great weekend!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hope you all have very happy holiday season. :)

I've been a crazy person lately (as i'm sure lots of folks have been), so not much on the blogging front.

I'm looking forward to doing some baking and kickin' back with the family. **ahhhhhh***

Well, finally my ski trip is here. :) I'm so stoked to hit the slopes...

I've got my friend J's snowboard bag and fancy schmancy goggles so I should be a rockstar on the runs. ha! riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

One of the swaps I participated in had several people who didn't send swaps out, but received one. The punks!! So I offered to do another one, despite not really having the time. I hope Y likes her package!

And double bonus, not only is this my Friday, but C and I are going swing dancing tonight. good times...

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Well we got dumped on last night, 9-10 inches of snow where I live. Very cool. I do love the snow. :)

C bought some lotto tix for us last night. Hopefully we are the proud winners of 3.9 milllllion dollars. Well, a girl can dream... ha!

The work Christmas party is tomorrow night... My friends' Christmas party is Saturday. Should be quite the festive weekend! I'm going to try to put up my tree tonight. :)

Check out these greeting cards, they are so weird, I LOVE them!!

What a nice horoscope!!

Wednesday, December 7, 2005

My Horoscope for today:

Balancing what you want and need with selfless good deeds is one of your specialties, and the good karma you've been cultivating is about to come back around in a very nice way. A long-distance connection or someone from your past might suddenly help something very sweet to land in your lap, or a person close to you may do you a big old favor completely out of the blue. Knowing you, you'll keep the excellent energy flowing.

Isn't that nice?? :) I'd like to think that I'm that lovely of a person.... ha!

It's snowing like CRAZY here. I hope I get to go home early!! SNOW DAY! I might have to dust off my sled for this weekend... A little snow practice before I head to the mountains next weekend for some SNOWBOARDING! Life is so good... :)

The Swap Present I got in the mail...

I got my swap in the mail: A lovely scarf and pumpkin pouch and a purple flower pin. So lovely. Thank you B! I'm wearing the scarf today and loving it. :)

The concert last night was fabulous and I saw a bunch of people there I knew. Supersucker cancelled which is a bummer, cuz I've never seen them, but because they cancelled the show opened with Drakkasauna, a funny little two person band which was really good. So it worked out good... :) Met someone who also liked Flogging Molly and he told me to check out the Fast Food Junkies.

Here's a picture of the swap package I sent. Hope you got it and enjoyed it S!
Magpie Skinny Painting, Corduroy Roy the Owl, Snowman Stickers, a lavendar sachet and a teacup with candle.

And here is a picture of my coolio bedframe and night stand my Dad made me, that is sporting my lovely urban outfitter duvet cover (sans my very warm down comforter) and my lovely new green sheets.
Urban Chic bedframe. :)

I need to get busy hanging some art... I'm just still putting stuff away at this point. :) And I need to start my Christmas shopping and creating. Oye vey!

Happy Friday!

No swing dancing last night, my dance partner's been outta town this week. *sigh* But I got my rockabilly fix by listening to br549 last night and I'm going to see Reverend Horton Heat and Split Lip Rayfield tonight along with the Supersuckers. Wahoo!!!

I did a bunch of little paintings on Sunday while watching Nat'l Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with Little M. AFTER we went shopping. It was a good day all in all. Rounded out by some delicious Chinese food. umm....

I have to work this weekend... I'm really kinda dreading it. Ah well, that's life right??

I've listed one of my paintings on Etsy. Check it out, or buy it if you wanna.... ;)
