About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

My Date with Martha

   Before I tell you about my lovely date with Martha, I have to show you the precious gift I received from my dear friend, Lindsay.  She made me this wonderful birdhouse (look at that little angel bird on top!) ornament to remind me of our friendship.  I was so touched by her thoughtfulness.  Thank you, Lindsay.  I adore the ornament and think of you often.:)

   Now, about my date with Martha.  You all know that I am talking about Martha Stewart!  No, we didn't truly have a date together, but I did have a date with her FABULOUS craft supplies!  Oh yes!  Jeff and the girls gave me a huge collection of Martha goodies for Christmas and last night I got busy...
   First of all, look at the treasure chest of GLITTER!  It's enough to make your head spin!  The glitter is ultra fine and luxurious- put some on your wish list- FAST!

    On to the glues.  Yes, I said glues!  They gave me 5 different kinds!  Check out the applicator below.  LOVE it.  It screws off and has a fabulous tip for neat application...

   The glittering glue has a WAND.  Come to Mama.

  I am going to try the Glue Writing Pen tonight.:)

   Another shot of the glitter, just to make your mouth water.:)

I forgot to take a picture of my Martha scissors, but OH MY, they are wonderful!  They even have a cover to protect little fingers.  No one is allowed to touch the scissors but ME.  No funky junk is going to ever touch it.  (You know what I mean, ladies.)  I never knew cutting could be so fun...:)
