New Toys and Sick Babies….

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 14, 2009 by banaedepp

Well it has been awhile since I’ve been on…Little Miss Brooklyn has been feeling sicky with an ear infection, hope she feels better soon 😦 ….and just been really busy…

Not too much going on. Last week the father in law was here and we stayed pretty busy. It was nice to have him here and watch him with his new grandbaby. He really enjoyed Brooklyn. And by the end she was pretty adjusted to him too. He also bought us alot of stuff while here…clothes for the girls, clothes for my hubby, and this for me…….

My new toy...

It is a paper craft sewing machine….It is called a Pixie…Isn’t it cute??!!!  I’ve been having lots of fun with it, although it gave me alot of trouble in the beginning…couldn’t get the bobbin to work properly…so took it back and got a new one and it works just fine….I started making ATCs right away and here is what my first one looks like..

I liked it alot and decided to keep it for my private collection.  I am really enjoying it. Went to Michaels yesterday and loaded up again on supplies…i find I usually have to go about once a month.  Had to get a new Gold Leafing Pen and papers of course, ink pads, a chipboard book etc.

Just finishing up the third book in the Twilight series (Eclipse) I just adore this series…Although I have to say that I am a little pissed at Bella and her kissing Jacob..I am on Team Edward all the way!!!!! Jacob is just to darn pushy!!

Loving my LOST and so glad it is back on…it gives me a reason to actually turn on the TV, beside to watch Disney Channel with Madison.  Well gonna head to the bedroom so I can start book 4 “Breaking Dawn”……Yipee!!!

Here is me an Bookie about three nights ago before the blasted ear infection…

Have a great weekend all!!  🙂

Well I have been extremely tired this week and so therefore no bloggin has been done! Little Miss Brooklyn gets up so much!!!  I cant wait till she finally does sleep thru the night and I can once again get a full 8hrs. She is nine months old now and should have been sleeping thru the night months ago!!! Im tired!  But she is such a sweetie!  I love her to death. Madison is almost 9 and is Miss ATTITUDE! Gets on my last nerve!! I keep thinking….If it is this bad now, how will it be when she is a teenager?? I might have to be committed 😦   Got their photos made on Saturday, and they turned out precious!! When I get them I’ll post a few. Here are a few photos from around here:

Me and my buddy Jessica went and saw Twilight finally!!! We went Saturday and met up at the local Cobb theater. I was so excited!! I had finished the book the night before and couldnt wait to see the movie!   I have to say that the book was sooooo much better than the movie,  the movie was good, but the books are always better. And I am definitely crushin on Robert Pattinson….so unique looking, very nice!!! I did really like the movie, thought it was very sweet and I really liked all the actors!  Started reading New Moon and I am addicted to it now…can’t put it down! Jacob is a werewolf,  Im mad at Edward now! Although he is still hot….

Robert Pattinson....luv

Robert Pattinson....luv

 

 

Great series of books….cant wait to read the next one. But then it will be closer to being over, anyone who loves to read knows what  I mean, sometimes the books are so good you just dont want them to end!!

Have worked on a few ATCs in the past few days….been kinda behind because of all my reading, I’ve got to find time for everything and to do that it means me losing even more sleep. My flickr trades have slowed due to me being at my max uploads for the month….so when February gets here maybe more .  Got some swaps coming up on swap-bot…..even a twilight one 🙂   Here are some of the recent ATCs….

Gotta get ready for the father in law to get here on Sunday…..really nervous!!  He is a neat freak and well I like a clean house but sometimes things get a little messy around here , with two kids and four cats and me and the hubby!!  So nervous!!!

Well gotta get the Drama Queen up for school…..See Ya!!

I’m 34 and crushin on a teenage vampire…..

I admit, I never thought I would be, but I’m totally enthralled by Edward Cullen!!!  I am addicted to the Twilight Books! Just months ago I kept sayin….”Who is this Cullen guy that’s all over the Internet?” and Why is every crazy over him….now I”m one of them.  My friend Jess brought in her Ipod to work the other day so I could listen to a book on tape….me and her are the only readers in the office…she thought I would enjoy it…so I started it up to find it was Twilight, and I couldn’t stop listening, I had to give her the Ipod back at the end of my work day and was so disappointed…I had only made it to chapter 6…so I went and bought the book and read like crazy that night and the night after….gonna finish up tonight I hope!!!  Didn’t get to read as much as I wanted to last night due to the premiere of my fav TV show…..LOST!!!   That is the only show I sit down for….I love it!!

and I love him……

ahhh.....Sawyer

ahhh.....Sawyer

And I love him……

My man JOHNNY DEPP

Wow…..I seem a little guy crazy…..

 

Anyways, no ATCs to post at the moment….been a little occupied with my vampire….so I’ll ge on it.

Baby is teething still….but no teeth yet…she is just extremely fussy. Will get some new photos made this weekend of her and her sissy!

Well I gotta go…got ATCs to make….baths to take…Vampires to obsess over….

SEE ya….

Wow, what a weekend. It was so much fun! I found a new Scrapbook store and they carry all kinds of cool stuff, they had all kinds of 7gypsies items….and that is so hard to find around here. I bought some rub ons, some transparencies, a board book, and some ATC blanks…and I signed up for an art class……gonna learn more about Tim Holtz’s grunge board and alcohol  inks…soooo excited!!!  Then I went and had a total make over…..my hair has been mid to long length and blonde for years, and this is what  I went and did……

Made somemore ATCs last night. Did get to use one of my transparencies, and I ordered some collage sheets from “Lisa’s Altered Art” and used some of those. Had to make some for a Black and White swap on swap-bot ….

Here they all are:

Busy, Busy, Busy

Hello to all!! Hope everyones week is going great. Mine is going ok so far. Having some drama at work …..but what else is new….when you have about 12 women working together in one office…what is to be expected, but drama??!! But I hate it, could do without drama for the rest of my life. And ya know the fun thing is, it always seems to start from this one woman.  But enough about that, been really busy so far this week, with school and work and preparing for the father-in-law to come visit. My oldest daughter starts tutoring this week, she needs help in math, she takes the FCAT in 9 weeks and if she doesnt pass it she doesnt pass 3rd grade…kinda scary…so she has eight weeks of tutoring for three days a week….poor baby… I really hope this helps her understand math…I’m not a good teacher at all..I end up getting frustrated. But I have all faith in her. I think she will be just fine!!!

I worked on some ATC’s last night and this is what I did……

Last nights work

My favorite ended up being the “Fun” one….thought it turned out cute… the create one was nice too…..and I do like the others. Hopefully they will get traded. I’m enjoying doing my swap-bot trades and the flickr trades….It is very enjoyable, so glad I discovered these little ATC things…It is so much fun !!!

Take care everyone!!

Why must the weekend fly?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on January 11, 2009 by banaedepp

It comes and goes so quickly doesn’t it….Sunday just started, yet I know it will fly and then its back to work….  😦  I love the weekends with my babies and being able to be at home with them. I love being able to get stuff done….the weekdays are soooo hectic….work, school, homework, girl scout meetings and errands. Love the peace of the weekends…and I get to create whenever I want!  Yesterday we pretty much stayed around the house…I went grocerie shopping ALONE!! I do so much better alone….I dont spend as much.  We got the house good and cleaned. Then for dinner we went to our favourite local mexican resturant and I probably ate my weight in chips and salsa! I love that place!!  Later that evening me and the hubby watched “Into the Wild”….

 

Into the wild

This was a great movie and very sad….It’s not brand new, my husband wanted to see it, he is a huge Eddie Veder fan, and he wrote all the music in it. It is based on a true story and was excellent. I recommend it!!

This is what I created yesterday….didnt get much done…..

 Turned out pretty I thought!!  Well gotta go get ready for church and get my Sunday started….Its gonna fly….I know it 😦

As my lovely 8 year old would say..

PEACE OUT!!
