11:11

I have posted about seeing the numbers 1111 or the time 11:11 and what it means to me...if not here is an old post. Since that post Granny has passed away and her ashes were buried at 11:11. Now I say hi to Poppa and Granny when I see 11:11.

A couple weeks ago I caught 11:11 on the stove and microwave when I walked through the kitchen.

So I wanted to get a tattoo in memory of Poppa and Granny. One of the girls that works at the Queen Creek Bistro got a new one and all hers are by the same guy and are amazing, so I got his name.

I went round and round how I wanted it. 11:11 was the main thing but do I put angel wings, one angel wing, an angel feather? Then since I have chickens and ducks I did not people to think it was a chicken feather. So I took a couple ideas with me to the tattoo place and Willy my tattoo guy loved this one so that is what we went with. I must admit I loved it too.

He also touched up a couple of my old ones where the color was gone.

Here it is a day or so later, I love it. It is getting to that itchy stage so I keep it as lotioned as possible. I love looking down and seeing it.

We were so busy this weekend, Jeff's Dad came to town for a couple days, and we had a wedding and a graduation to go to. Plus I had a swap to get finished so I could get it in the mail. I won't even mention all the retired stuff I have all over my studio for my sale in June...can you say tornado? That is what it looks like.

So Cute

You know some commercials are so cute, they tug at your heart strings or make you laugh. Then some leave you with the feeling...what were they selling?

This one with the little boy getting help blowing out his candles is so adorable. I love the humankindness commercials.

Then this one is so funny, heck I was the oldest child so this might have been me...ha!

What are your favorite commercials?

April Card Gut Challenge Cards - Pick a Pattern DSP

Card gut april Diana Gibbs www.stampingwithdi.com

I got the cutest card from Tanner my old BDA at Stampin' Up! and I just had to do it for my downline card gut challenge in April. After I turned it over one day I realized that the very talented Melody Hyde actually made the card I was even more in love with it. Thanks Tanner and thanks Melody...and oh P.S. This DSP is retiring. 

 

Every month (unless something happens I have no control over) I do a virtual meeting in our private FaceBook group (no matter where you live we can all take part in it) and I start it out with a FaceBook live where I do a make n take, then we continue on chatting for an hour. If the girls miss the meeting no worries, the video can be watched later as is the meeting chat.

The team can request a Card Gut packet if they want, and then they upload their card in our group. I love seeing what they do with the supplies. Card guts are the supplies needed to make a card, cardstock, DSP, ribbon, etc. Nothing stamped of course. They can alter, add, subtract from the items I send them, it just needs to be current and only Stampin' Up!

Here are the fun cards the girls did with their card guts.

Update on Eric and his little house!

So many people ask me how Eric is doing in his little house. I had to look back on my blog cause I did not remember if I had posted final pics of his house once he moved in, and I did.

Can you believe he has been living by himself for over a year now? He loves it and so do we.

Eric bushes to house

Jeff poured a sidewalk from our house to Eric's and then from his door out for the van that picks him up to go to work. Jeff also planted some purple potato bushes and they are filling in so nicely.

Eric front door bushes

How cute eh?

So I have now gotten so used to saying in my head...I don't live here...ha! That way if it is messy I don't have to live in it. He does at least wash his hands...ha!

Eric soap - such a guy

I love the soap he picked. Such a guy eh?  One thing I do with my Stampin' Up! income is pay to have my house cleaned every two weeks. When Eric moved I told him that I would have the ladies do his house once a month and he agreed. I figure a good cleaning once a month is good, he does not too bad with his helpers keeping it pretty good...dirty clothes and bed not made aside...hey I don't live there right? Ha!

Anyway thanks so much for asking about Eric, we appreciate it so much. He says hi!
