Ok my turn.  


  1. Stop spitting on the window.
  2. I need to pee leave me alone.
  3. Awww Cry me a hand full (hated it when my mom said this)
  4. Wash your hands you don't know where they might have been when sleeping.
  5. Do you EVER shut up.   (remember I can't wait until they talk)
  6. Put the seat down I'm tired of sitting in water when I get out of bed to pee
  7. Were you born in a barn SHUT THE DOOR. (heard that enough growing up)
  8. Ok that's it, hold the light switch for 5 minutes and maybe next time you will remember to turn the light off when you leave the room.
  9. Just because the light was on when you went in there is no reason why you need to leave it on too.

Bracelet I made last night

Hello everyone, well my day has just began at 3:00 pm today.  Just didn't feel like getting up today as I was having some good dreams.  Ever had one of those days?  I normally get up between 10 - 12.  

Anyways I wanted to show you what I made last night before going to bed.  Wondering if the resin (plastic) Eiffel Tower Looks ok with it.  As it is so hard to get the Eiffel Tower pieces.

Please leave a comment below if you think this looks good.  I'm testing it to see if the Resin Eiffel Towel holds up.  I think it would be fine as long as I didn't play tackle foot ball or something.  LOL.  
What do you think?

Please Comment on My new Bracelet Design

Hello everyone.  Well once again I have been working hard on bracelet orders being ordered for stocking stuffers or christmas gifts.  Several have picked out charms then tell me design it however you like.  Ok that tells me that as long as I use those charms they are fine with it.  So I designed this bracelet below.

Here are a couple more angles.

I really like it and even wore it for 30 minutes thinking maybe I would make myself one like it.

I sent pics to the customer, she DID NOT like it and wanted me to remove the feather.  I did and here is what it looks like without it.

 My feelings were kind of hurt but I didn't tell her that. And I wanted her to be happy, so I redid the bracelet. Here is the same bracelet without the feather.  To me it looks so bare.  Please comment below and tell me what you think?  Do you like it with or without the feather.

I think I am going to raise the price though for special orders as it takes me 1 1/2 hours to make them.  Some even longer.  They are fun to make, but worth more than $3.50.  And I found out the local mall sells the same exact ones for $20.00.  Which to me is WAY WAY to high.  

Anyways please comment below.  And thanks for visiting my site.  Follow Me.

My Pinterest Addiction

Ok I know I am not the only one that says....................I'm just going on for a few minutes to search for this particular card I want to make.  The next thing I know is I have been surfing and pinning for about 3 or 4 hours.  I have places hurting I don't want to even talk about.  Even my carpo tunnel has now went to a muscle in my arm where I sometimes have a problem sleeping at night because it hurts.  No not from clicking, I mean that is what everyone gets carpo tunnel from.  I have to start my own new kind of pain.  I'm getting it from scrolling.  You know that little wheel on our mouse.  Oh my gosh I never thought I would experience so much pain.  I have even started putting the curser where I want it to go then tap on my computer pad to select thinking I am giving my right hand, wrist and arm a break.  Well I seriously thought it was working until 2 days later I just had to go and pin some cool Zens.  And wham it was like I never took a break.  And this time I only got on for 45 minutes.  Do you believe it?  45 minutes.  wow that is almost like the worlds best record.  lol

Write me and tell me what is the longer you have sat on pinterest with no potty breaks until you HAD to get up.  And what were you looking at.  If more than one thing give us some examples.

Here is the last thing I remembered looking at.
