Which Muppet are You?

Me? Was it ever a question?

You Are Miss Piggy

A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.

You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.

You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.

Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

Isn't it mice?

Well, just spent most of today working on the Valentine Cards for 3-year-old son's daycare class. Why exactly did I feel the need to make over 30 cards? While I think that the little guy thought that they were cute cards...would it have made me less of a parent if we went out and bought Thomas the Tank Engine cards for, like $3 and only 1 hour of my life?

Ahhh, the guilt of the working mother...

and the adorable quote inside....

February Made Me Shiver....

ok...It is a few days late to be the anniversary of the Day the Music died. BUT, come on...there are not too many people that have sung about the cold, nasty little month of February. I can't think of a child's rhyme about February...so, that's what you all are left with...a song running thru your heads.

In all honesty, as far as 2008 goes...February is looking up for us here. January sucked. Blew Monkey chunks. Me no likey!!

It was January, 2008 that was greeting with Oldest Son, 13yrs, who shall be known as Mr. Snarky Pants (where did he find that sarcasm?) was treated to not only ONE trip to the hospital for surgery -- but TWO trips to the hospital for surgery. Yes, Mr. Snarky Pants had a malignant tumor in his digestive system and got the joy of having 1/3 of his colon removed. Talk about your good times....I got to spend many, many January nights sleeping in the empty bed in his hospital room.

And...I had to do it without the benefit of the morphine button to push every 10 minutes to help me sleep!! Not fair!!

We have a lot of follow up to do, and while we think that it has all been removed, we will not know for several weeks. Until then, we like to think that life is almost back to normal around here. As normal as we can pretend to be...I have been slow to jump back into my stamping, as I know that you all can understand. Like posting in my blog, those stamps are another reminder of how thin I spread my time. Wait...maybe they are reminding me of how much I procrastinate. Or, how sometimes...I just can't make up my mind.

Another bit of news, this time on the crafting front. Many of you have heard about Ebay hiking it's fees, and really sticking it to the small seller. Well, as a small seller...me no likey. (hey, I quoted the fabulous Emperor Kuzko twice today!! LOVE HIM!) So, more and more of us are going to be leaving Feebay altogether, and hanging out more at Etsy. Are you an Etsy fan? Do me a favor? Click on my Etsy link and Heart me...please...

In return, I will share one of my favorite sceens from The Emperor...the waterfall.

Hey! Who clicked on that without hearting me?? Naughty naughty naughty!!

oh, and to keep this on track -- here is the only card that I have made since Mr. Snarky Pants has come home...
