Can you tell I love this greeting? I have used it so many times, and it works perfect with the crown from Artistic Etchings. And little Sally the bear wants to be queen for the day. Did you ever play dress up or just play pretend stuff when you were growing up?
Melissa and I were talking today about how things are so different now. We had to use our imagination when we were kids. I remember putting the lawn chairs out on the lawn and we would put blankets over top and that was our house. There was an old rusted out car and we would sit and pretend to be driving. We would play Charlie's Angels riding our bikes down the road to play with friends. We were the Bionic Woman, making that clicking noise with our mouth as we ran along. Now kids play video games all the time, watch tv and it seems like they don't have to use their imagination. Although the new Wii system I think is good for getting you off your butt. Eric got one for his birthday last year. I want to get the Wii Fit thing for it. Does anyone have it? Is it good?
So I went and got my shoes today, and even tried on a few shirts, losing an ear ring in the process…grrr… But I am excited for Wednesday, and can hardly wait.
I have class tomorrow at MAMMa's and I can hardly wait to see her, it seems like it has been forever.
I also got notice that my catalogs should get here tomorrow. So make sure if you want one mailed to you, to go to this link so you can get one. If you are wanting to pick one up, please let me know to reserve one for you.

Well I am headed to bed, I have a bit of a headache, and sometimes my stinkin' tooth still is bothering me. It still seems to be sensitive to cold, and if it keeps it up I will call the dentist next week.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.
This is the most amazing amalgamation of the new & the old. The bear sets are so versatile we can use them with a lot of other sets.
You simply rock and give us so much of inspiration.
Thank you once again.
Oh my gosh, I remember making those forts with the chairs and the blankets, when we lived at Andy and Marions! And the playing Charlies Angels and Bionic Woman with Janet and Carol and Rob and Laurette Vanneste!
Oh the good old days!
I'm hoping getting out to the country the kids will have a bit more imagination for things to do. They are anxious to go for a walk in the bush at the back of the property so maybe they become bush people!

Hi DI! I really enjoy reading your blog. I'm a Twilight fan as well!! Go Team Edward!! Wahoo!!
I just pre-ordered my Artistic Etchings set and can't wait to play with it!!
About the Wii Fit. We have one, and it's so much fun! It will tell you your weight, and ask how much you are wanting to lose, and also calculate your BMI. There are aerobic exercises, yoga and fun little balancing games. My personal favorite is the boxing! Good luck!
Thanks for the inspiration too!

That's too cute! I got the bear, don't have the crown yet, but once I get it, I will play! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you for creating a card just for me…
LOVE this card!
Sally from St Louis, MO
This card is SO CUTE!!! I love it!
I can't believe you cut out that crown! How long did that take? I'd have chopped it to pieces. 🙂
I totally agree about the lack of imagination (and exercise) for some kids today, with all the video games and tv. We don't have a Wii, but it sure sounds like a good idea.
Thanks for always sharing such great work and all the little fun and interesting parts of your life!
She's just too cute! Thanks for the inspiration.
