Well today I had my first round of 10/10/20 Birthday card classes. Such fun girls, such fun cards.
We also had sunscreens put on all our windows, so I will let you know if it makes a difference in our electric bill, I hope so. I just know that now the house is so dark during the day. Jeff says that is good for the summer time for the house to be dark. I just wanna say nanner-nanner-boo-boo, to all the dang flies. No more fly poop on my windows. Well it will get on the outside frames but I wont see it looking out. Please tell me that everywhere gets fly poop and not just my house.
Well I don't know what got me talking about nasty old poop, when I have the beautifulest shadow box to show you. A little giftie from my BFF Tracy when she was here for that very short visit a few weeks ago. She got the little shadow boxes from a dollar store in PA, and they were plain wood and her tight tushed, popeye armed hubby Steve stained it for her…for me.
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, and watercolor crayons for coloring.
Misc: Riding Hood Red Taffeta, Lots of cutting out, and popping, which means lots of luv!!
Here is a side view so you can see how beautiful it is from all angles.
So tonight we watched a movie called "The Happening", ok I am just sitting here now wondering, gee Di what could you have been doing instead? Cleaning the lint out of the dryer, giving Toby a bath, finishing the dishes, shaving my toes…I mean anything would have been more useful in spending my time…especially
my toe hairs giving Toby a bath! It was a scratch your head kinda, what the heck movie, we borrowed it from friends, and now I can happily get it out of my house.
Well I am going to go to bed, and read, I changed my class schedules on Sunday's so that I have only one class and it is early evening, that way people can go to church, or sleep in if they want, and you know what? I want….to sleep in tomorrow, and with my nice dark screens and the blinds closed…I just might!
Have a great Sunday, Happy Father's Day Dad, and to all you Dad's out there!!
Thanks for stopping in!
I watched that a few weeks ago on cable. Afterward I said to my sister, via email, that the director owed me two hours. That was just awful. Waxing a body part would have been better.
Di, we put the shade screens on last summer and it made a huge difference in our electric bill–we do monthly averaging and our bill went down $40 per month! It does make the house dark, doesn't it? But it also makes it better for sleeping in! :^)
Hey Dawn! I saw your fabulous shadow box card in the Stampin Success. WONDERFUL! And, I know I should know this… since I'm a SU! demo and all, but… what's a 10/10/20 class? I feel dumb not knowing!
I called you DAWN!!! What's wrong with me?!? I know you're DI!!!! SHEESH! I think my fingers typed the wrong thing even though I was thinking the right thing. So Sorry! SHEESH!
Um…I don't think we have fly shit in Canada – you should move back!!!! We have mosquitoes that could pick you up and carry you off to another part of the country though!!! I'm gonna have to watch that movie now…just to see why it sucks.
I'm assuming you thought it sucked…..unless shaving your toes is a spectacular spectacular event!
(Happy Father's Day Jeff!)

Hey I need to Echo Jacqui's fly comment. There are NO Flies Pooping on my windows so "I" think you should move to PA!!!
So The Happening was worse than The Reader??
I'm sure Eric and Jeff will have a nice Day together. Eric is a Lucky Lucky Young Man!

Hey you forgot to mention the Humming Bird in the Shadow Box is an AZ Hummer, because it's whole head is RED. PA Hummers only have a red chest. (Note the difference in the card I made (at home) in an earlier post and the shadow box, (made at your house) after I noticed that.) AND if I could I should of enlarged the bird stamp cause the Hummers in AZ are TWICE the size of PA hummers!!! Funny!
