House Mouse Again

Good morning! I hope you're having a great day so far! So I found out this weekend, that I've been washing my hair wrong my whole life lol. Seriously! I have a lot of broken hairs, and I was googling how to prevent them, and apparently a lot of them come from how I've been washing my hair! The broken hairs curl up and the ends and look frizzy. Now that I'm not scrubbing my head with my fingernails, and rubbing it dry with a towel (your supposed to blot it), I'm having hardly any frizz, without using any of the many frizz products that I usually use. It's crazy, just about everyone I've talked to had been doing it the same way I was. I also mixed together some olive oil, mayo and an egg and put that in my hair (the amounts don't really matter much, but the more oil the better). Wow, it makes it very soft! I left it in for 1 1/2 hours, but you don't have to do it that long. You should leave it for at least a 1/2 hour, and as long after as you can stand it, and then just shampoo it out. I'm going to start doing this once a week. I am amazed! Anyway, I just wanted to share in case any of you are having frizz problems too. wink

I am loving these adorable House Mouse images! I've got to buy some of these. I used Taylor's sketch challenge from a couple of weeks ago. It seems like I'm always at least a week behind on sketch challenges. This is totally random, but if you like Taylor Swift and/or T-Pain, you've got to watch THIS video! It's so funny!! I love them both, and it's so funny to see Taylor Swift rappin'.

House Mouse

Good afternoon! I thought I'd post this before I head out to see my dad. I made him and my father in law cards, but I actually just cased myself, lol. I made them identical to THIS card I made for my hubby for our anniversary only with a different sentiment, so I won't bother posting those.

I created this card using last weeks Stamps and Smiles sketch. I got this adorable House Mouse image from WRAK on SCS. These are so fun to color! I could easily just sit around and color all day! The only reason I don't is because I don't want to use up my markers wink.

Good morning! Well, I think maybe my mojo is back! I really enjoyed coloring this adorable image and making the card. Erin sent me this image along with a bunch of other really cute images for making the header over at Stamp Something. Thanks so much Erin! I believe you may have started an obsession! lol This image was so fun to color! I used THIS MFT sketch by Cindy Haffner. I love this layout!

Good morning! I hope you had a nice weekend. Sorry I haven't been posting. My stamping Mojo must be on vacation rolleyes. I sure hope it comes back soon...I'm really starting to miss it wink. I just don't really feel like stamping right now. I want to, but when I go sit at my stamp table I just stare off in space, and I just don't feel like it. Friday was hubby's 28th birthday, so of course I had to make him a card. I just wasn't feeling it though, so I used a sketch I drew a while back to make it easier.

Deck the Dog =)

Good morning! I hope you had a nice weekend! I finally got another page made! Maybe I can make them a little faster now that I have the Cricut. I can't believe how easy it is to make titles! Now if there were just something to make journaling easy. All the words on this page were cut with the Cricut and the sure cuts a lot program. I got the inspiration for the layout from Scrabooks etc. I planned on casing it, but I didn't actually stick very closely with it. The scallops are just a bunch of 1 1/4" circles. I'm so happy with how this came out! I've always loved this picture of Dumpy and have wanted to scrap it. Dumpy is my mom's dog, and the mother of my dog. If your wondering how she got a name like Dumpy, that would be my fault rolleyes. My mom got her when I was 15 or 16 during the summertime when school was out, so I got stuck house breaking her. My mom was calling her gypsy which I didn't like so I started jokingly calling her dumpy since I had to clean up after her so much. Well the name stuck lol. Dumpy is the coolest dog. She didn't even mind having bows put on her. Everybody is crazy about this dog. I wanted one so bad, so in 03 my mom breaded Dumpy so I could have a puppy mrgreen, so that's where I got Reese.

Cheers to You!

Good morning! I made this card for last weeks MOJO Monday sketch challenge, and for the Cat's Pajamas color challenge which was to use yellow, aqua, brown and optional red. I love how different these colors are! I need to start doing more color challenges. I find myself wanting to use way too much pink wink.

I can't even tell you how much I love my Cricut! I've spent so much time finding pictures to convert to SVG files to cut. You can take any picture, convert it and cut it with the Sure cuts a lot program! I made some really pretty butterflies last night! I can't wait to use them. I also don't have to use my piece of junk circle cutter anymore! I've always hated that thing, but I couldn't find anything I didn't hate even more! lol Aside from how bad it cuts a circle, it can't cut circles small enough to do 2 of my smaller nesties. One of them I use a SU punch for, but this one I haven't been able to use yet since I couldn't cut a circle that would fit inside.

Well, we still can't figure out what is wrong with our AC. Everything seems to be doing exactly as it should (the coils are even cold), except warm air is coming out of the vents. We had the freon checked, and it's fine. We tried running it on the fan setting when it was cool outside and that air was warm too. We had to replace a part this winter, so we are thinking maybe something somehow got wired wrong so that the heat is coming on too. Oh well, someone loaned us a window unit they aren't using, so at least we won't roast until we can get it fixed.

I'll try to post again in a few days, but I guess that depends on my Mojo rolleyes. Have a wonderful day!

Hello! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! My mojo seems to be hiding right now. I've sat at my stamp table many times in the last week, and just didn't feel like doing anything. Maybe it's the heat combined with the fact that our air conditioner isn't working rolleyes, but I don't feel like doing a thing! Ugh, it's 89 degrees in here right now. Our air is blowing fine, but the air is not cold at all. I tried it earlier and it was actually making the house hotter! Hopefully we can figure out what's wrong with it soon!
