Wednesday week countdown

I am always glad for Wednesday. Friday is in sight and I relish my weekends. I hope your week is going well. Hope your life is too. This will be short and sweet, my life is boring. I miss my kids and wish for warmer days to come soon. I have listed over 100 items now in my store so I have been busy lots of great eye candy.

Thanks to she purchased my little cube bracelet with her winnings on the treasure hunt recently on Artfire; thanks Moonstone for all your hard work with that. You can find her great shop at
I love this piece of Desiree's, purple is this seasons sure and visit both their shops.

Smile for today! Stop wrinkles smile more. My favorite proverb: I would rather be thought a fool than open my mouth and be proved one.

Can't find any really good jokes they were all too adult that I was finding, but there is some great ones at the bottom of each older post, if you have a good one to share please let me know, I always need a smile, especially now. I really love a few new blogs that my fellow artist on are doing, great reading, love you all. I am following them all so just take a peek, click on their avi.

Rantings and ravings of a Crafter

Are you a crafter...

This blog is for all the significant others that have to put up with the rantings and ravings of their crafter spouse. all the scents, the yarn, the packaging, the beads, the supplies, the mail orders, the mail pick up............really this is to my guy, my Valentine......they call him "Fuz"...he is a sweet sweet biker (Harley of course) we have been together since we met. He accepts me as I am and me him, we don't try to change each other.
Poor guy has to put up with so much. My rantings and ravings about costs, sales, my computer talk (doesn't use one), always listens and encourages, tries to cheer me up and take me bead shopping when I am down...what a guy!!!! When I show him a new piece of jewelry he always says "WOW, that's beautiful"..........first he is a man, so I know better, 2nd he is a biker, so I really know better.
So for all those partners out there, thank you so much for being so supportive and putting up with us. My passion for the gemstone jewelry has become a way of life for me know and I intend to make it a full time business. You are happiest in life when you love doing what you do.

Lastly I couldn't have done it without him. He supports me and keeps me creating. Doesn't complain about the 1000's of beads, rocks and supplies I have nor the time I have to spend on the computer to promote and sell my wares. I love him so much!!oxoxoxo

Joke for the day:

Girls night out.

Two women friends had gone out for a Girls Night Out, and had been decidedly over-enthusiastic on the cocktails. Incredibly drunk and walking home they suddenly realized they both needed to pee. They were very near a graveyard and one of them suggested they do their business behind a headstone or something.

The first woman had nothing to wipe with so she took off her panties, used them and threw them away. Her friend however was wearing an expensive underwear set and didn't want to ruin hers, but was lucky enough to salvage a large ribbon from a wreath that was on a grave and proceeded to wipe herself with it. After finishing, they made their way home.

The next day the first woman's husband phones the other husband and said, "These damn girls nights out have got to stop. My wife came home last night without her panties." "That's nothing," said the other. "Mine came back with a sympathy card stuck between the cheeks of her butt that said, 'From all of us at the Fire Station, Well never forget you!'

I loved this one......Have a great day....go make something.

TGIF....So glad for the weekend

Well this cat has had a very busy week, lots of blah, blah, blah from the docs that really cuts into my just sittin around time......just not enough hours in the day. Here is part of my problem. I know I have slight, now slight ADD, OCD, I am always multi-tasking, losing track of what I was doing and arguing with myself and of course bead shopping.....prioritize. That is hard too. What is important to me is not necessarily important to my significant other. Like my top priority. I have enough clothes for several weeks...he doesn't.
I did get some things accomplished besides my regular 9 to 5, sold two more pieces on Artfire....WOOT!!!. Promoting is helping, closed my eBay store completely, not my account, I have some great feedback there. Established some conversation on AF for a "Sellers Code of Ethics" which I hope becomes a real juncture on Admins part too. Listing lots of eye candy.
Hope every one has a great weekend. It is actually warm here from -4 to 50+F in 3 days...Gotta love Iowa.

Smile for today: Did you think I would forget......

THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK Have you ever spoken and wished that you could Immediately take the words back... Or that you could crawl into a hole?

I walked into a hair salon with my husband and three kids in tow and asked loudly, 'How much do you charge for a shampoo and a blow job?' I turned around and walked back out and never went back My husband didn't say a word... He knew better.

I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at him and said, 'I think I like playing with men's balls

My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of candy and nuts. As we were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help. I replied, 'No, I'm just looking at your nuts.' My sister started to laugh hysterically. The boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away. To this day, my sister has never let me forget.

Have you ever asked your child a question too many times? My three-year-old son had a lot of problems with potty training and I was on him constantly. One day we stopped at Taco Bell for a quick lunch, in between errands. It was very busy, with a full dining room. While enjoying my taco, I smelled something funny, so of course I checked my seven-month-old daughter, she was clean. Then I realized that Danny had not asked to go potty in a while. I asked him if he needed to go, and he said 'No.' I kept thinking, 'Oh Lord, that child has had an accident, and I don't have any clothes with me.' Then I said, 'Danny, are you SURE you didn't have an accident?' 'No,' he replied. I just KNEW that he must have had an accident, because the smell was getting worse. Soooooo, I asked one more time, 'Danny did you have an accident? This time he jumped up, yanked down his pants, bent over, spread his cheeks and yelled, 'SEE MOM, IT'S JUST FARTS!!' While 30 people nearly choked to death on their tacos laughing, he calmly pulled up his pants and sat down. An old couple made me feel better, thanking me for the best laugh they'd ever had!

This had most of the state of Michigan laughing for 2 days, and a very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely think before she speaks. What happens when you predict snow but don't get any! We had a female news anchor that, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked: 'So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?' Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too they were laughing so hard!

Not mine a friend sent me these.....:)
